its a hard class but she teaches it well, and i absolutely love the woman!
She's cool. Her class was hard, as it should have been (L4). I handed my research paper in late, she lost it, but took full responsibility for it even though it was my fault.She seems nice in general.
I had her in 1996 and LOVED HER!! Thought her class was awesome..Maybe because she loved our class...She's a great person..
Mrs. Caloutas is challenging, but that's not a bad thing. She really prepares you for the classes you will have after her, and improves your writing style. Not to mention she's pretty nice. :)
She's either a love her or hate her teacher. I love her but she is really, really hard. I had her for honors and I think she prepared me well and my writing really improved with her.
Really really hard teacher.. shes nice but she gives way to many writing assignments and huge projects that are retarted.
Well. I had her for level 3. That being said, I guess she could have been harder. She was always very nice to me and to the class and knew when to work and when to have fun. I thought she was a good teacher overall.
i don't care what anyone says, mrs caloutas is the best english teacher i've ever had. she may be difficult but it's very helpful and i'm thankful i had her.
Once she forms an grade opinion of you, you'll be stuck with that grade all year. Take L3 in 10th grade.
Had her last year. I haven't learned much of anything from her, and she is really rude to some students for no apparent reason. She'll only SEEM nice when the spotlight is on her.
wicked hard, but one of my favorite classes sophmore year.. yea 8th period level 4!! :-P
Extremely difficult class with an impossible workload, but she improved my writing immensely! She likes when people connect outside experiences to the text.
Extremely self absorbed. I really want to like her, but her ego just shines through everything she says.
Tough and opinionated,seemed that her grades reflected her tastes.Not flexible with other people's writing styles.Discriminates against certain students...Avoid.
You will pour your heart out in hard work only to receive a disappointing grade.
stay with L3 english and she won't mess up your QPA.
as difficult as she were, i will never forget my L4 experience in her class, she has built up my work ethic and prepared me for college, as no other teacher has
She was incredibly difficult..i mean really who givs sumne a 32 on a midterm????????
I had Mrs. C. last year and I am now realizing how much she taught me. It was rough and I didn't like her, but now I see how effective she really is.
How can you compare her to stalin when she is so passionately concerned about the cruelty of totalitarianism, victims of oppression, etc. ?
Mrs. Caloutas made me such a great writer! When I was a sophmore she was my absolute favorite teacher!
She does seem to accept only her opinions-but when i get a job-im guna have to do things the way my boss wants, thats life. i'm glad i learned that now.
I hated her at first thinking she was ridiculously nitpicky, but she makes you a better writer....She ended up writing my college rec.
Caloutas may be a hard teacher but at least she's nice, and she's very smart. She makes you work for your grades and i agree with that!
I had her for Public Speaking..she was very hard and not always fair..and seemed to like the potheads in the class...but I am a better Public Speaker now.
Before caloutas, I didnt know opinions could be so wrong. I was mistaken. Message to ALL her future students: When reading Silas Marner, bring up the notion that you think Godfrey Cass is a good guy. For kicks, put it on the test too. You'll get a D,
I love Mrs. Caloutas she's a great lady and really cool!!
nice, but much too opinionated, seems like essays are wrong if theyre not what SHE believes
aka Stalin.. at one time we had 5 project assigned at once..
Nice person, but trying to get an A in her class is like trying to win the Tour-de-France without a bike and with a 400lb. boulder strapped to your back...
intelligent but, as mentioned, very opinionated... treats students respectfully but is a little egotistical... in all seriousness
I think that Mrs. Caloutas is a cool lady... shes nice to me, but a little too hard for me. She could take it easy on the assignments... but over all shes cool
I had her soph year; now I'm a senior.She gave lots of work & graded tough but fair.I'm now a MUCH better writer for having her and she helped TONS w/college :)
shes really hard to please, and she must live in a tanning bed
