she's really sweet and reminds me of miss geist from clueless. But she does pick favorites.

Ms. Costa is pretty nice, but her class is a joke. If that's what you call an enriched english class, I don't even want to think about the regular english classes.

Miss Costa was nice enough but she just wasn't a good teacher! I think she just chose the wrong profession. Bad move there, sweetie.

she is really nice, and lets you slide once in a while, she is very motherly and understands you whenever you have a problem, you can always talk to her, she is SO positive and always smiling and laughing

I can't stand her... I had her 1st cycle and I deserved an E and she gave me an S... I never say I deserved an E, but I really did. I had nothing lower than a 95 on any of her tests or quizes or projects. She's evil!

She's a very nice person, but her class was a bit easy. The classes don't let her think that, though! I mean, if ANYONE gets less than an e and they really belong there then they're just not trying.
