I'm sorry but she is truly terrible as a teacher. Patronizing, one sided, and discussions are sub-par; they focus on basic plot overviews at best. While Ms. Acquadro talks plenty about open-mindedness and 'nonconformity', she does not seem to appreciate new or different ideas at all. Instead, essay grades are given subjectively according to how aligned they are to her own views and interpretations, discussions are one-sided and lack diversity. I loathe every class.
One of the worst human beings I have interacted with at Newark Academy. She is a part of what I consider the strongest department at NA, which makes her horrible personality even worse. If she was half as nice as any of the other teachers it would be a considerable improvement. Called one student daft in a college rec. Has no issues personally attacking students. Another teacher NA should have fired a long time ago. She thinks she is funny but the real joke is that she still has a job.
Mrs. Acquadro is one of the most knowledgable teachers in the English department and very possibly the entirety of Newark Academy. In class, she's absolutely hilarious and makes each class fun to be in. Although in terms of essay grading, you may find it tough to achieve high marks if your ideas deviate too greatly from hers. Overall an awesome teacher, you just need to get used to her.
Mrs. Acquadro is probably the best teacher I have ever had. She drastically improved my writing and I owe all my successes to her, she is also a great mentor and friend. A wonderful teacher!!!
Mrs. Acquadro was one of my favorite teachers at NA, but not because I excelled in her class. She is a great woman and is willing to help anyone succeed if you are willing to put in the effort.
as a person, she's not bad. her jokes get old fast, and she's 1 of those teachers who give u the same grade on every essay no matter what. she's extremely opinionated, sometimes funny but oftenboring
Your first essay grade will be the same as your last essay grade. She knitpicks on essays. She knitpicks on quizzes. She only appreciates essays that reflect her beliefs.doesntbaseessaygradesoffeffort
completely one-sided in her opinions, is not at all open-minded, jumps to conclusions about plagarism immediatly
she does know her english, but if you dont agree with her on anything then she will just keep giving you C+'s.....
She is an awesome teacher and shes totally cool, but if you don't agree with what she says, you WILL NOT do well in her class at all
good person, but when it comes to teaching, if you don't agree with what she says in class you won't do well on your papers
Mrs. Acquadro is a great english, even though she is difficult, i learend a lot last year.
