Deborah Fucking-Asshole Toth has made my year hell.We have a harder curriculum than the other verbal classes.She doesn't even write the homework on the board.She literally just says it to us during some of her fucking labor intensive work and expects us to remember it.Then she wonders why nobody does it. She is sexist, and plays severe favorites.On her tests, she doesn't even tell us what to study and everyone either gets a C or an F.Plus, she is a total dinosaur when it comes to tech. Fuck her!
I took her class a few years back and I agree that it was hell, but it really did improve my writing a lot and it made english classes in the following years so much easier. Her class also got me more used to a heavier work load, something that I'm pretty accustomed to in high school. For those of you in the class right now, good luck, its hard but she does genuinely care about your learning. The class also created some of my closest friends through our shared struggles.
Mrs. Toth made my seventh grade year hell. She played severe favorites and was not good at explaining things - she would always have us read material and do packet work instead of actually teaching.
I hate her. She always yells at me and she called my parents because she's "concerned." I just want her out of my life. Her class is a waste of time. Sentence structure is not a matter of life and death. She is so mean. If I ever see her after this year I will run away. She doesn't even help us. She thinks we're in college. Her class doesn't determine our whole future.
She is extremely strict and her exams are super hard too. You must study for tests. She also might do comprehension tests once in a while so you better know your material well. Also, she will play favorites.
It has been a while since I had her. Looking back, I must say that she was the last English teacher I had that actually made me care about English class. I had her in seventh grade and from there English class became less engaging and challenging. I am really grateful for all of the experience she gave me because she certainly prepared me for future English classes. Just remember to do packet work on time, get your reading logs signed, and study for the unit tests.
OKAY STUDENTS ENTERING HER CLASS IN THE FUTURE - Despite what everyone says, she's not that bad. She definitely knows her material, and yes, I admit her tests are INCREDIBLY difficult. But eventually you'll realize how much you learn about life skills in her class, and she's really not all that terrible once you see how many fun activities and projects there are. JUST STUDY HARD, WORK HARD, AND DON'T PROCRASTINATE. Best of luck.
Geez, where do I even start. Her tests and most of her work are hard. Really hard. But she really cares about you and what you are learning and you will leave her class ready to conquer anything and you will also leave a whole lot smarter. She can be bit overbearing and mean at times, but it isn't that bad.
Vocab tests? Pft, easy. Well, if you can remember all of the origins and roots (there is that vocab test at the end of the year with ALL OF THE VOCAB FROM THE ENTIRE YEAR - BE PREPARED). Unit tests? Just study. Not as bad as you think.
Background tests? If you want to pass, read each background packet front to back maybe at least 5 times. Maybe at least twice. And definitely try to get all of the tiny details that you don't think are important. Don't skim anything. Do your homework. Good luck.
I HAVE GREAT NEWS
MRS. TOTH IS GOING TO SIXTH GRADE. HALLELUJAH GOD ALMIGHTY!
let the little kids suffer.
her class was really hard and very confusing. I wonder how the tiny tots will handle reading her handwriting and tests.
Shes so harsh and mean. She doesn't understand that everyone has limits. I had many personal problems and didn't do all my hw, but she doesn't give a damn. She yells at me so much and she hates me so much. Everyone makes rumors about me becasue im not doing well in her class,
Knows a lot but doesn't teach well.
She is SUCH a hard verbal teacher! She gives out so many ridiculous, useless assignments and picks favorites. Her tests are really hard even if you pour your heart out on studying for them. She is very unclear with her homework assignments because she writes down only a couple pieces on the board, then assigns a couple more during the period. A lot of students miss assignments due to this and it really drives me crazy! Her class is so difficult and beware incoming 6th graders!
She gives a ton of useless projects that take hours to complete. Half of the homework she assigns, she never checks. Her tests are insanely hard, even if you studied super hard, you won't know everything she put on, becuase she is determined to break spirits. She is unclear, writing down one piece of homework, and then assigning 5 more pieces throught the period.
Well, the tests have WAY 2 specific questions. LOTS of projects. She is never specific enough with her directions and when I asked a question about the project she answers saying that she already explained it but she didn't! :( She also talks way 2 fast. When u r writing definitions for flashcards, u can't even keep up! WAY to much packet work. I was up 4ever, trying to finish. She tells u what will be on the test on the day be4 it. How r u supposed to study everything in 1 day? WTFFFFFFFFFFFF!
This class was one that I will never forget. Many people below continue to explain that Ms. Toth is awful and not nice, but it isn't true. When I was in her class, the constant tests, quizzes and homework was overwhelming, but it was difficult to see then that she does this not for her own entertainment, but to help her students succeed. Thanks to Ms. Toth, I am now ahead of my class in reading, writing and grammar; her teaching style is difficult and demanding, but will prove to be worthwhile.
When I walked into her room, I was scared for life.
I am a current student, and currently have an A average in her class. At first I thought she would be horrible; I thought she would be strict beyond belief. Maybe later in the year she may. But for now, there isn't TOO much work to do. There are projects and such, and sometimes a lot of homework, and very hard tests if you don't study a lot, but really, she isn't so bad. Just be prepared, her class is NO easy cakewalk. Be prepared for anything
Currently I'm in a class for Mrs. Toth, and she's not half AS bad as everyone says. I'm doing alright in her classes, currently maintaining an A-. We haven't had any projects yet, all her work is fair, and she gives us tests on stuff we were suppose to know from reading carefully. Yes sometimes she is difficult, I'm not saying she's the best. But if you study hard and pay attention, you'll succeed. I haven't had any stress or mental problems so far. This is what we're expected as honor students.
Mrs. Toth is a very strict and hard teacher. I got several Fs in her class. Don't cry if you get a bad score.Thrive to Survive. Try to be her favorite. She teaches you helpful grammar stuff too.
- former student
i forgot how to use sentence structure
i am failing english rn
Mrs. Toth is a very knowledgeable and experienced teacher. She gives out EXTREMELY difficult tests, even if you cram for them. If you don't study, there's a very high chance you'll fail her class. There's a massive workload, and you have to be attentive and active in her class, or else it'll be difficult to successfully complete your home and class work. Although she has a very difficult class, having her is a very good experience. Her teaching will tremendously help you in the future.
Many people say that both her and her class are terrible, but that's not true! She has hard tests that should be studied for by viewing all materials and starting as soon as she announces the dates, and if you have a project, especially the pop up book, save an hour or two each day, since they can be very time consuming! Mrs. Toth is a nice person, but she really scared me because she can be very nice or strict. She kind of picks favorites and you learn a lot, a good class, but pretty hard.
Wow, A lot to say. First of all, the reading logs and do noes are IMPOSSIBLE to catch up with the 6 packets we get for every book (I kid you not one book we had 6 packets with 43 pages in each). Her background tests are very hard so get used to aspiring for B+'s as a good grade. WE ALL PROCRASTINATE. Don't have to to pretend like your perfect. Let me tell you, you will not be able to catch up if you procrastinate. Side comment, she cares about us a lot, and for that I have a Deep respect for her
All the people writing these comments are NOT former students. cough cough. they are all current students.
to those who lie, shame on you.
Mrs. Toth is awesome.
Ms. Deborah Toth. Many of her former students consider her to be an offspring of Doomsday and Armaggedon, but I choose not to take that path. Instead, I will try to be extremely frank and base this on MY beliefs only. In Ms. Toth's class, there is no excuse for lacking behind. If you miss her class, you MUST find a way to make up your work, because she will check. The projects that she assigns may be a bit too exhausting, along with the essays, but her class isn't all that bad. Study and study.
Sometimes there is little to no work and sometimes there is a lot of work. Procrastination is not a good idea. Try to finish all your work even if it takes a long time. For projects try to work on them each day. To do well in this class you really need to focus and stay calm. Mrs.Toth is not as bad as people say she is but you really need to focus on work.
Mrs. Toth is the best teacher ever. She gives us cookies and jollie ranchers? lol. Very knowledgeable and I don't know why people are writing hate. She is that bad. I got a couple of D's and F's. The tests are hard though. But still, she is great teacher and you'll do fine in her class
Uh...I don't even know where to start...
THE STUPID TESTS!! ITS LIKE GIVING YOU THE SAT IN 2ND GRADE!! THEY'RE IMPOSSIBLE!!
Her instructions are unclear...and as a former student of Mrs. Toth, I have to say...WE ARE AFRAID TO ASK HER QUESTIONS!!
She gives us the 'death glare' and the funny thing is that if you look at Mrs. Toth's face while someone is presenting, you'll be able to tell what grade the person gets...
I wonder if she's reading this...we the students would be so screwed...
Mrs. Deborah Toth is the best teacher ever. She teaches you so many useful things that would definitely help a student in his/her future life. She is kind, caring, and compassionate. If you hand in a late assignment, she will accept it. We are always watching movies and having fun in her class. She never yells at people and is always smiling. Can I go home now? Please, Mrs. Toth, stop FORCING me to write this review and let me go! Someone help me! I'm being held at her house and she wo--
If you survive The Toth then you pretty much win at life. Because your life in her classroom isn't exactly pleasant. Just hope you don't get her on your scheduling during the summer. If you do, hope you have her after lunch because the only way to survive her class to cram in as much studying and homework as humanly possible. I mean, you get to watch movies and read books, but then you have to do a bunch of projects and write a bunch of essays about them. All in all, just switch to regular ILA.
Let me just say that I am in her class right now. She is not that bad. She teaches you a lot, but you have to work realllllllllllyyyyyyy hard in her class!!! Her background tests are the worst, but she helps you learn a lot. And you probably won't have her next year since she is retiring. I can't believe I am going to say this, but I actually might miss her.
She is a good teacher and wants the best for you. Work and study hard and you'll be fine.
The main problem was that the tests were extremely difficult. In the end, the grades usually level out to a decent grade. You just learn a LOT in this class.
Although she is a hard teacher, her students turn out the best and learn much more techniques than other classes.
The name "Deborah" makes me pass out. If you dont want this to be the same for you, it is farely simple. Just think like sh thinks, then you will know her every move. According to the demn, we have no lives, no other homework, and no other classes.
she's really strict, but you learn a lot from her. but some of the quiz questions were honestly just absurd. "what is salieri's favorite breakfast food". also the background quizzes, seriously study for them a lot. a lot of people got d's on them because they were pretty detailed.
She is truly gonna be the hardest teacher in your lifetime but you learn a lot of techniques in her class. She overwhelms students way too much never giving a day to rest and thinking that there is no other teacher that we have homework for but she is nice and has good teaching strategies
learns alot kindakkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkk
she once gave us a fill in the blank quiz on a quote that we had never learned before. enough said. (get on her good side. kiss up to her if you have to)
Book work isn't that hard but the projects are crazy. At one point we had a huge project, test studying, and packet work at the same time. As soon as we took the test and handed in the packet there's a new project along with the other project that's still not finished. Don't be happy when you find out there's only multiple choice questions on the test- a lot of them are tiny details that you have to know. Still not a really bad teacher.
I don't think you all realize that her husband died during the 2009-2010 school year and then her mother died in the 2010-2011 school year. will you please have sympathy for her? she was great at teaching and it is not difficult to get an a since she grades so easily on projects and you have reading quizes...
You will all hate her while u have her, but next year will be so easy for you guys that you will cry. She teaches you a lot and she is really nice at the end of the school year! You will miss her soo much next year. Trust me.
She may seem mean but actually helped me learn a lot this year.. She causes stress but it helps u work
She is totally a teacher that makes you learn things by yourself. She always grades my papers without reading them because many of my papers deserve higher than a C maybe a B overall i dont like her
She seemed nice at first but then after her work load and unreasonablness emerged, most of my class hates her. She gives out useless project that take forever to satisfy her.
she FORCES you to learn things on your own. she only reads from the book/packet and barely explains/adds any extra info shes strict nd sometimes ull question WHY u have to complete 1 of her projects
she is really hard.she makes you work hard though.i just didnt like her because she was hard and gave me a C+
really hard but is a good teacher even though i hate her
she loves me but unfortunately the feelings were shared
class is boring..good place to sleep...has a good rep..dont know why....has all fooled
shes very strict. i know a lot of people dont like her.i didnt like her that much eather. just get on her good side and just do all of the work and i promise you will do well and she wont be as tough on you. =]
Teaches like a computer and treats her students like one. Maybe it's time to teach something else and take a break.
Mrs. Toth is a good teacher. She is very hard but, that would make things easier in 8th grade. She does not mind when we talk, most of the time. Her tests are really hard though, but w/e CM
you can be a little unclear, but you sometimes yell when some asks a question, but she is ok i guess
reele hard class, SO MANY THINGS WE HAVE TO DO OMG!!!
tough grader, unclear on directions....i tried hard, but i still didnt do that well...
mrs. toth is an okay teacher..she just needs to lighten up a lil! she is a tough grader. i try hard in her class, and still dont do well! mrs. toth---> LIGHTEN UP!!
I hate you!you cant teach just retire and get it over with!!!!
shes a great teacher, but she needs to lighten up a little, we arent in college english class!- GD
I like her class, ok, so some of the projects are hard, but she's a good teacher
she is ok, needs a smile on her face, needs to chill out and keep her cool
I was in her class once cause i dind't go on a trip.. i thought she was nice!
Mrs. Toth is very nice, she helps people if they need help and she is also kind.
such an interesting class. ILA rocks and so does mrs toth. house 7 will win the battle over all the houses
I think your funny and you always have a smile on your face!!!!
she good, but she needs to lihten up, were not in college!
shes cool .. but she has to lighten up and not to be strict
Shes cool, but needs to lose the whole reading log thing!
She is very strict and concerned and that's a good thing, that makes us learn!!!
Sort of mean and gives too much homework. The reading logs are annoying
