Donnelly is both an English and Journalism teacher. It is evident that she favorites those student who have/had her both for journalism and English. She also favorites those her participate regularly, which is basically the teacher norm. If you have Donnelly be prepared for a lot of group and partner work. She sticks with Common Core but has her own twist on the lessons which make them that much helpful. She is polite and courteous but if you tick her off, you better watch out. All in all good.

3 words to describe this teacher (who should not be a teacher OR A CHEER COACH) Lazy, Fat, Dumb She will tell you that she is not going to teach the lesson that was planned for the day because she "doesn't feel like it" She does not take her job seriously what so ever and should not have a job. She acts like a high school girl (petty

She is rude, and she doesnt care about the students. She doesnt do anything to help them, and then she yells at them for getting things wrong. She barely goes over things, and she has an attitude. She walks like a duck, and she stalks the students twitters because she has nothing better to do.

I thought she was a poor teacher.. She barely did anything to really help you with your writing. Felt like she did not care to REALLY help a kid improve.

she plays favorites with the cheerleaders in the class sometimes, most likely because she's the varsity coach. anyway, she's a tough grader. she can be nice though.
