Whoever posted 1/27 probably didn't do what you need to when you need help: ask. DeCosta was one of the best English teachers I've ever had, partly because she treated us like intelligent adults.

Didn't seem hard to me. I got a 94 and received a recommendation for honors. Personally didn't care for her that much, she's kinda a phony. Very strict, also.

Very hard, but one of the nicest person that you will ever meet. She does not think that she is above her students. You feel as if she understands today's kids.

I really liked her. She was a very nice person even though her reading test and quizzes were very hard. She was meticulous, but was a very good teacher.
