Mrs Axt is not my favorite teacher but she isn't as bad as the reviews say. She isn't super nice and is strict but she can be helpful and nice. She also often goes out of her way to have us try something, gives us cookies and compliments. She isn't the greatest teacher but she is a pretty good one.

Ms. Axt is very knowledgeable about the curriculum, but is horrendous in teaching it. She gave us sooo much homework, and compared to Sadler who I had the next year, we could all finally take a deep breath, unlike Ms. Axt's. Just terrible.

She is the worst teacher I have ever had. She hates everybody but her "favorites" and lets them off and when us non-favorites do the smallest infraction she goes out of her mind. She is a biased, overly strict teacher who should not be allowed to teach. Do not blame your child for getting bad grades in her class. They probably did fine and she took off points for no reason.

Ms. Axt-Pilon made fun of me in class multiple times, and I cried outside of school because of my piers ridiculing me because of what she said about me. She gives bad grades with no explanation. On one test EVERYONE got between 40 and 70 percent. But she let us retake it. She is way too strict. I know teachers are suppose to be more strict, but she goes way over the top. Hopefully she improves her 'methods' of teaching next year.

Freaks out over ANYTHING and has us 'discuss in our groups' instead of actually teaching us. What i hate most is the fact that she picks on certain kids, and gives others advantages! Someone in my class said that she didnt have to do most of the homework because of dance! Meanwhile, i get late credit because she didnt tell me the homework was and i wuote from her, 'it is not my job to tell you what is for homework, you have google classroom' someone needs change, and its not the students!

I am very displeased with Ms. Axt Pilon. My daughter comes home every day almost crying over the harsh grades she dishes out to her students. It seems to me that Carla has favorites in her classes and picks on them publicly and gives them harsher treatment while letting her "favorites" get away with the same things that she persecuted others for. I think Carla does not know how to interact with young children in middle school and belongs in a college where she can pick on older students.

Not very helpful... kids are not interested in learning because of her.. only "pleasing" her. She gives out bad grades without explaining much.

She is okay. She gives out WAY to many ISD's, detentions, and refurrels. She expects alot from her classes. If you don't goof around you will be fine but if you tend to lean towards the 'naughty' side.. GOOD LUCK! She tought me alot though about english, writing and speaking.
