Catty and high tension, comes off as unprofessional. In a perpetual feud with the administration due to running the Journalism class. Definitely lives for the drama.
She will say she doesn't play favorites, but she does. She will scold you for not having any extra credit, even though it's stuff you have to PAY for. She also openly mocks you, and you're flaws. She told use to do poorly on our LAFT test just so we could do better next time, so it looks like we made a lot of progress. SHE WILL BREAK YOU
Mrs. Rakis seems pretty cool as a person, but as a teacher she blatantly plays favorites and isn't very interested in helping students who aren't in her inner circle. She gets a certain satisfaction out of ripping people apart for their mistakes in front of the class; I participated very little in class discussions for fear of being deemed stupid by her and the hivemind of followers she garners. You know what, I take it back. She's not a cool person at all. Teacher? No. Venomous bully? Yes.
Strick, serious about students learning. One of the best at West. Students prepared for most than state testing.
Mrs. Rakis is super hard and strict. She is pretty cool when it comes down to it, but she does make you feel bad about yourself. She thinks all her students are stupid or something. but other than that shes okay.
she is amazing! all of her focus is to helping you succeed in your life.
An amazing teacher who focuses on teaching you the most she can. I love her straight-forward attitude and professionalism.
Rakis is one of the coolest teachers i have ever had. She has her moments of off the wall splurts but you get used to it. Just dont get on her bad side and you'll have a great time
very up front & she speaks her mind, but she's pretty nice...not the easiest teacher but helpful
