Ms. Beniretto is extremely knowledgable and al great teacher. She is clear about how to study and willing to help a struggling student. As long as your are willing to work, you and Ms. Beniretto will get along just fine. I, being a current 9th grader, am extremely grateful to Ms. Beniretto; I am finding 9th grade history easier than 8th grade history! New students--she has quite a reputation around SJS but she is genuinely one of the kindest teachers I have ever met.
Do the homework even though she doesn't check it because it will turn around an bite you it the rear end when you're taking a test
Ok, she doesn't seem like a great teacher at first, but you will LOVE her once you get to high school - all of the history teachers are awful in upper school.
When I think of this teacher, a sour taste fills my mouth and grit grinds in my mouth. Yet, when i think back, I can remember no specific incident with which I feel particular malice. Therefore, I have to conclude that her reputation resulted in most of the negative feelings. As a former advisee, I recommend her for those who need shape up and molding before the tasking days of high school. I credit my writing style to her as I now specifically cater to the teacher's beliefs to get a good grade.
Well, if you didn't study the wiki, you got a bad grade. Go Figure! Tests are your best study guide.
She is really tough, but I think she is wonderful in helping children to be prepared for Upper School!
Pay attention, do the work (on time!), and ask for tutorials when you need them. Very helpful if you are interested in being helped.
you're either with her or against her. if you're with her she's the best. if not, she's the worst
I agree with some of these people...if you just pay attention in her class and be agreeable then its an easy road...just don't tick her off..
When in 6th grade, I was terrified of this woman. Then, when I had her as a teacher, she was really nice. If you were a good student and worked hard, she loved you and made your life easy. Give effort
If you pay attention in her class and do the homework, her class is very easy. If you don't, you will fail and she will make your life hard. It takes self control
