While she does have a pretty chill personality, she needs to start doing her job. The AP Environmental curriculum isn't organized at all. She's not clear on what you need to focus on in your notes and when she does, it's too broad and not helpful at all. Don't be surprised when you do poorly on her reading quizzes.

Tantillo's class was a real eye opener. Made me rethink a lot of habits. She is very passionate about the class and brings some good humor to your day. She is funny. Also helpful and understanding if you need extra help. AP science is hard in general, but the work is rewarding.

It's hard but enjoyable. She's very funny and personable. I enjoy going to class even though there is at times lots of work. It's a good AP class.

Ms. Tantillo is one of the best teachers I have ever had. She makes learning a fun and enjoyable experience while also allowing you to be responsible for yourself, which is realistic in an AP science class. Her stories are the best and she is really hilarious. I look forward to her class everyday and yes sometimes the work load can get high but she will usually give you enough time to do it. Also very approachable and helpful.

So far my experience with Ms. Tantillo has been very positive. We read a lot of material from the text book and other readings that she provides. So far, she seems nice and funny, but also approachable. The quizzes have been a little hard, but no surprise there it's an AP course. I have asked for help and she was available to answer my questions.

Tantillo is honestly one of the best teachers I've had at BHS. If you're willing to not be rude and actually pay attention to her lectures, she breaks down the material so it's easy to understand even some of the more difficult topics she covers. She is willing to go out of her way to help you, but really puts forward special effort if you ask. She has a more dry sense of humor and that turns some people off, and sure there are bad days. However, she's really kind and has the best stories.

I cannot remember the last time she taught us anything in the class. All of us students are forced to teach each other the material which results in poor test scores and unhappy students. Overall the worst teacher I have ever had in my twelve years of learning.

Fantastic teacher who is very passionate about what she teaches. Very knowledgeable if you demonstrate interest and willing to help out any struggling student.

Tells a lot of great stories! Very nice, understanding, and knowledgeable. Very little homework outside of class, except for occasional essays (also a easy grader). Tests are slightly tricky but getting an A in the class should be no problem at all.

She is a cool teacher and tells the best stories. The only things is that she doesn't teach the material well and isn't good at explaining tests.

she is an alright teacher, but seems angry often. she isnt that clear in explaining tests either. Can go for the entire period giving notes and she presents it in the most boring way.

Worst teacher I've ever had. All we do is busy work, she has not taught us a single thing this year. In PG terms we have a count of her mean moments: 185, nice moments: 8.
