Mrs. Diaz grades so hard. After spending hours on an essay I would consider well written being a 4.0 student received a failing grade. Grades extremely hard on all writing assignments as well as homework and plays favorites. Talks a lot about her kids and other irrelevant things pertaining to her life which has nothing to do with the curriculum, just wastes class time and bores the students. Clearly grades easier to her favorite students and takes bias during class. Would not recommend her!

Mrs. Grubbs is super relaxed and fun, but she also really cares about her students. She conducts really deep, meaningful discussions that I actually enjoy participating in. As an honors student, she definitely expects a lot, but she doesn't play favorites and is a fair grader. Overall, Mrs. Grubbs is a fantastic teacher -- not only is she knowledgeable and aprroachable, but she's also funny and caring. Thanks to Mrs. Grubbs, I actually look forward to English class every day.

Ms. Diaz is honestly one of the best teachers I have ever had. I had her for English Honors and I thought 1st semester was harder than 2nd semester. Although she grades hard on essays and essay questions on tests, her class is fun. She's very chill and lets you eat in her class. Her personality is also great because she genuinely wants to help her students. Don't drop English Honors if you get her because you'll regret it. If you have her for regular English, you'll be very happy. :)

While knowledgable, I found it difficult to approach Ms. Diaz-Grubbs. Most of the time her answer was a form of "If you don't get it, get out of my Honors class." I had never been taught the MLA format or several other types of assignments so I really struggled most of this year. She may be nicer in other classes, but I found this year to be immensely difficult due to the lack of support she gave.

I may be a little wrong because I only had her for summer Speech Dynamics. She had the most fun personality! Even though, she jokes around and gets off topic at times, we get work done while doing it. I can honestly say one of my favorite teachers at Arcadia. But, don't let the easy-going mood of the class trip you up, she grades as hard as any teacher.

this year was amazing with diaz. she truly inspired me and i do believe the whole class. the last day with her was full of laughs, tears, and memorable stories of perseverance and being strong in tough times. although sometimes alot of us felt that her class was tough or not the best in our cluster, after the last day with her, we knew that her class was something special, something that we will not see, ever. diaz, if you're reading this, you are truly my and probably everyone's favorite teacher.

EXTREMELY BIAS. She DOES NOT TEACH and she LOVES talking about the MOST RANDOM THINGS. She grades you TERRIBLY and says the most ridiculous things on your essay. For ex: For the topic sentences she marks you off if you don't mention the name of the piece and author. What is up with that... HARSH/UNFAIR GRADER. She acts nice but she threatens people, she threaten someone would packed up early to talk to Mr. Tung about his position in ASB and that she could terminate it. If you get her, hope for the best.

Ms. Diaz is a kind teacher who really gets into her students, although this can sometimes seem like picking favorites. But, it's all just common sense. People will be nicer to people who have been nicer to them. She's really understanding with deadlines and student issues, kind of like a counselor. As a teacher, she doesn't really teach how to do good writing. The outlines and most of the stuff she lectures about are Meh. You probably know a lot of it and you really have to watch out for yourself for an A.

Ms. Diaz has always been one of my favorite teachers at AHS. I had her for Freshman Honors English, and she makes the class fun, but effective at the same time. In her class, even books like Romeo & Juliet, Mythology, and The Odyssey are interesting. She does sometimes go off on tangents, but they make the class more interesting. It takes some effort to succeed in this class, but it's not non-doable. Her sense of humor is an added bonus, and she knows how to be sarcastic without being mean or obnoxious.

Great teacher. Favorite class this year for me too. It's not hard to succeed, and I'm in Honors. She makes English fun, even with terribly boring books like Mythology. Her stories and everything are great. She has a good sense of humor too and you can tell she enjoys being a teacher and isn't there just for the paycheck.
