Diane Porcaro was my Algebra 1 teacher in eighth grade and I can honestly say that she was an amazing teacher. If you're in her class, be prepared for A LOT of homework (roughly 60 textbook questions at most). She has a lot of experience and is great because she sells candy and lets you eat it in class! I got a 99 on the regents and believe it's because of the level of experience she has a teacher. If you have a hard time in her class, she always is there for you you!
Strict teacher, but helpful. Also loves horses.
What do i have to say? GOOD LUCK. LOL She's strict and is a very emotional person. Lacks in depth details of the math but serves more than enough for the regents (which is a joke). Hardness depends on the individual. I personally found her easy whereas the class in general ran in the 70s-80s. However she is willing to spend extra time in assisting students. Exams are beast and be careful because i hit the 80s on 2 of them by being stupid.
I graduated from Dyker Heights in 2003 and had Ms. Porcaro as my 6th grade math teacher. Reading the reviews, I noticed that she did not change, and is still one of the strictest teachers in the school. What you dont understand is that she is being strict for the benefit of the students, not because she enjoys being mean. She is a great teacher and understands that you might hate her at the end of the year, but if homework and tests can help you pass your regents, she doesnt care if you hate
LOOOOOOOL OMG I DONT HAVE HER BUT ACROSS THE FLOOR IM IN ANOTHER ROOM AND I CUD HEAR HER SCREAM
shes a little strict and i was pretty scared the first day of school. but she turned out to be fun and a great teacher. im actually learning things. shes a little weird but thts ok cus shes nice and has a greaat heart but if you get her mad then ull regret it. overall a great teacher.
She's generally a good teacher, and sometimes even fun, but dont EVER get her mad because if you do YOU WILL REGRET IT. If you listen, you'll pass the regents.
Mrs. Porcaro was a great math teacher! She may be strict sometimes, but she knows what she's doing, and you'll ace the algebra regents because of her. :3
Awesome teacher but kinda strict (FOR YOUR OWN GOOD), with her as your teacher, you can't fail the regents. She will drill you and make you stay after school because thats how much she frigging cares!
