She is very sweet and definitely cares about her students and wants the best for them but she gives us a test almost every day and her office hours are in the morning which makes it very hard to get to. She also grades very hard. I like her as a person but her class is very hard and the amount of tests is ridiculous.
Ms. Castelli is one of the best teachers I've ever had. I was not a very good Italian student, but Ms. Castelli goes the extra mile - if you want to improve, she will help you improve. Patient, kind, polite. She has a whole slew of entertaining stories from Italy, which is a plus. Passion for the subject is in abundance.
What an excellent teacher. She really cares about her students, loves to teach and motivates kids to be active, productive members of the community.
Although some students swear she is excessively strict, I believe she effectively teaches the class through these methods. She is extremely helpful and the best foreign language teacher you could possibly get. One word- AWESOME! :)
i thought she was gonna be really strict, but shes a really good teacher and awesome =D she loves me <3
awesome teacher! helpful, and knows everything there is to know about Italy! signora, sei il migliore!
