i had her for honors global freshman year. HEr tests are extremely hard and you have do all your extra work and outlines or you won't pass. As long as you work hard you're fine. She's kind, funny, sarcastic, and overall a great teacher as long as you can take the heat. Don't drop her class i failed the first test and did poorly on the second but my grades improved to 80's and 90's in her class. Stay with her!

Mrs. DaSilva is hands down the greatest teacher I have ever or will ever had. She is able to weave current events into the history we are learning with exceptional skill. I love the class. She really hates my class period though.

She's perfect. Like perfect. The class is only hard if you don't do your work, which no one does, that's why everyone thinks it's hard. There's a reason she has her rep, because she's perf.

She's a decent teacher, but I feel like she throws so much info at us, some of it has to stick...
And she sometimes imposes her views on the class when it comes to religion and politics.

She's funny at times and is likes to talk about stuff not even relating to global, and often gets sidetracked, but that's a good thing. Oh yeah, she doesn't check HW, so it's an easy class.

i really think that she is a good person.and probably a good teacher too,but i think too much of the class is based on independant learning when we haven't really learned how to do that yet.i just wish we reviewed the textbook material more than the packets which didn't really end up on the tests.but i think people make her class out to be a lot harder then it is.

Class is easy, expect challenges but you'll get used to it. Nice person, iffy teacher but you learn to deal with it. If people really put as much effort in learning the material then complaining, they'd do better.
