A genuinely good person. Frequent testing which sucks but honestly one of my favorite teachers. She cares about what she teaches and if you get to know her and reach out to her she'll make your life easier in her class.

Ms.Bellina's thursday quizzez are pretty annoying--if you get one or more wrong, your basically screwed. But you get used to them by the end of the year and i guess the hard work will pay off. Other than her quizzes , the class really isn't as hard as some people say it is..my class doesn't complain at all. and yeah..Ms.bellina is like my favorite teacher--she's funny and u do end up learning a lot from her class

When you ask her question she will not answer them at all. You also never receive a rubric on anything so be prepared to go into a certain project without any knowledge, and she will not help you out along the way. Her favorite phrase is "this is an honors class."

Mrs Bellina is actually a really nice teacher when just talking to her her in class with her open class discussions!
BUT, the Thrusday open notebook quizes are pretty hard and her tests are nearly impossible! Not to mention you are expected to read 40 pages each week for these Thursday quizes.
Overall, she is a nice person but her class is pretty difficult but it will prepare you for later in high school.
She only teaches Freshman and Sophmore as of right now.

Mrs. Bellina is a good teacher but we only take many notes in class. While we take notes, Mrs.Bellina is explaining and summarizing the topic at hand. It is difficult to understand all of this material at once. She is a kind person and a good teacher. However, I wish that we would do more activities or something else besides taking notes.

I like her, actually. Well, almost because she likes me. I give her cookies :D Anyway. She's a hard teacher, and all you do is talk, so it's an easy A but a hard class, and I really like that.

...if she asks you "What do you think?" during lectures, DO NOT say "I don't know." At least try to get on her good side, then you'll be set for the rest of the year.

Don't make it look like you don't understand what's going on, or she'll drag on with the same topic forever. The class is more interesting if you do stuff fast.

Material was presented very linearly. She would go through overheads everyday as the lesson plan. I took down every word on every overhead and i got an A.

I don't have a problem with her personally, but I think her course is SOOO much harder than the other people. Everyone gets terrible grades on her tests.
