Several points on why she's awful. First, she's terribly disorganized. We spend half of class waiting for her to finish shuffling her papers. She takes a whole marking period to grade things. She frequently forgets when things are supposed to be. She also doesn't know how to teach. I've never been more productive in doing nothing for an entire class period. She never goes over how she expects us to do things, which is why a majority fail her open ended tests. She's super defensive about it too.
This teacher is the worst teacher I've ever had in my years at LHS. Her inability to grade assignments even close to what would be considered "On time," makes me wonder why she even became a teacher in the first place. She does not teach, and she complained about how much work she had! Hello? You're a teacher! This is your job!
She was an okay person but a bad teacher. She would always complain about her life to us, and though I was sympathetic the first 5 times she mentioned the same thing, it quickly got old. Class was often boring, and having her freshman year kinda put me on the path for not really having a good English experience in high school.
She's a really nice person, but not a very good teacher. Read the books and you'll be fine, but all I learned was that A Separate Peace was the worst book I've ever "read".
She was a really nice teacher!!!! All of the books we read during the year were really good except for A Separate Peace. She didn't teach us grammar or how to write at all, so we discussed the books we were reading the entire year. The multiple choice tests on the books ranged from easy to a little hard, but she prepared us well for the analysis. She barely assigns any hw and gives us a lot of time to write essays but takes entire marking periods to grade them. She gives grade boosters too.
Although she is a nice person, her tests on the books we read are very difficult and include extreme details that were unlikely to be remembered. Additionally, it takes her a very, VERY long time to grade. It takes her so long that you have forgotten you have taken it by the time she returns it. Once you are finally returned the test, you are disappointed in the low grade. She grades very harshly. If you ever get her, be prepared for studying until it hurts and bad grades :)
She is a really good person. She is a tough grader, but teaches what you need to learn. She is not the best with 'classroom procedures', like making groups, averaging points, giving enough grades.
A REALLY hard grader, but I've learned so much.
Dellosa's class is very hard, but I'm so glad I was in it. She really made me passionate in my writing, and it was an amazing experience. She cares deeply about her students, and if you show her an effort to improve your grades, she will do what she can to help you.
She's so sweet, caring and motherly. Her grading can be harsh and her tests can be hard, but it's a chill class and she's pretty chill to talk to!
She is the single WORST teacher I have ever had in my life!She doesn't explain and she is a mess! She comes depressed everyday and she talks about her daughter too much.She also only has her job because she went to college with Mr.Stern (principle)
Sooooooooooo boring that you fall asleep in her class everyday. Also doesn't teach and puts the most absurd questions on tests! If you get her be sure to study hours and learn nothing
Truly the worst teacher ever. We learn absolutely nothing in class, and she talks incredibly slowly and quietly. Yet the exams are impossible and test you on irrelevant details in boring books. She takes decades to grade, and is extremely harsh when she does so. It's hard not to fall asleep, but doing so results in a poor grade; not because you missed important information, but because she'll hate you and grade you unfairly. Class with her is a complete waste of time.
you either love dellosa or you hate her. there is no middle. she really does love to talk in class, and we do not get much done at all. she is such a sweet person, and is so lenient to handing things in late. she does though, take a really really really long time to grade assignments. tests are always difficult, so pay attention in class and read the books because she asks questions about small details sometimes. all in all, it was a pretty decent class.
Mrs. Dellosa is nice enough, she's very understanding about late work (maybe a big too understanding), and she grades very lightly. However she teaches honors English like a cp2 class. She makes asumm
Spend hours and whole class periods talking about the all important "essential question," and analyzing it. We don't get much done in class because of this. By the time a unit is over you hate the es
SO ANNOYINGGGG!!!!! JESUS SHE DOESNT SHUT UPPP!!! SERIOUSLY BRING EARPLUGS TO CLASS SHE IS SO LOUD AND OBNOXIOUS
Tests are hard. It takes her at least a month to grade things. Things show up on tests that we never learned. We barely take notes in her class,
Nice but there is just so much analysis in the course. I don't know if it was only me but I found it extremely boring.
very slow grader. Her tests are not at all related to what she teaches. The first grade you get is the same grade you will get all year round.
I think Ms. Dellosa is a great teacher very helpful and easy to deal with
Very nice person but a very tough grader. Takes a while to get things handed back and does not give real notes
Doesn't grade work on a timely basis. No feedback. Hard grader. Total emotional mess!
she's a very nice person. however, not a great teacher. she writes one word on the board a day and talks about huge concepts everyday that has nothing to do with a book. hard greader, takes a while.
She is the BEST teacher in the world!!! So what if she doesn't get everything back 2 us on time! I am SO close w/ her... and i KNOW that she ALWAYS puts her kids and family first! She rox!
dellosa is okay, she is not the BEST teacher, but she is better than some.
awesome teacher!! she isn't that hard of a grader i got a A!
VERY HARD GRADER! always late for class, took 4ever to get class started, took 4ever to get things back...doesn't believe in anything over B
wut a tough teacher!?! hardest grader ever! really nice woman..but tough..
Hard grader...but I learn a lot in her class so it's worth all the work
she is a nice person and everything but a very harsh grader
