Teaching is about relationships. In the words of Rita Pierson, "kids don't learn from people they don't like." Nilsen/Pozzaglia has had a profound effect on many students and is a master at building relationships.

Great teacher. Best italian teacher they have in this school. I will say that her projects are a little annoying, but that's about it.

Italian won't be the same w/o her. We learned but didn't know it. If you complain it was because you weren't paying attention and tried to take advantage of her laidbackness.
