Cappelli changed my life. One of the most inspiring and wise women I have ever met. I pray that I will get another teacher as great as her. I've never had someone make me think as much as she did. She's very frustrating at times, but she's totally worth it. The woman made me laugh so hard I started crying a few times. If you get her as a teacher, just listen to what she says--she has a lot of wisdom to share.

So much love for this woman. She's very blunt and straight to the point. Her teaching is great and her class is filled with humor. Yes she's a tough teacher with hard tests and a lot of essays, but she is worth it. There was never a boring moment in her class because of her funny remarks. I had her for honors btw.

She complains about everything. Deal with it. Deal with her exams. She's a good teacher and a nice person but she's very cranky. She doesn't really assign that much work either. Good luck with her and the AP exam (which I didn't take).

Her class is extremely difficult, but if you read the material and don't bomb any of her tests, she will love you. She's such a great person, but her teaching style is hard to keep up with.

I had Capelli for AP Lang and AP Lit. She is very disorganized and is often unclear as to when assignments are due. You may also experience anxiety because you never know when you have a test or essay

She makes you feel bad. She doesn't care and she only likes the surfer kids and the drama kids. She is not fair and will give the lowest grade allowed.
