Amazing teacher, wonderfull person,.. There are too many good things you could say. Not an easy class but more than worth it.
Joanna is the only teacher in this building who motivates you and pushes you to do your best, not for a test but so you can actually learn. she expects you to excel in every area, and she is the BEST
Defeo is great- not easy, but amazing! Learned so much...
You'll appreciate getting a college level professor in High School in a few years. Regurgitating information is not accepted by her- time to be creative and original. Good luck.
WOW Defeo is by far the smartest, most interesting teacher in the school. She knows that we're capable individuals and she will push us to acheive our greatest potentials. AMAZING
The only intellectual under the roof of Swampscott High School. THe only one who does not rely on scholastic worksheets to teach. Defeo, you should be a college prof!
Besides being disorganized, she is one of the best teachers I've had.U learn more than grammar, u learn about life; she's the Mr.Feany of our school. She's hard,but u learn so much
Great Teacher. One of the best I've had. She's always there to help you so if you're doing bad in the class go see her in her office after school/during a study
Ms. Defeo is the best english teacher ever! Yes she is hard but she is also fair, so deal with it! I love the bright purple shoes and lime green sweater look
She is so hard, I can't take it, she is way too demanding but dicussion time is a fun time, atleast she knows what she is doing unlike some teachers.
Really tough grader, but easy-going helpful and one of the best and funniest teacher's I'v ever had!
D money, D cash, D fizzle, Deef, whatever u call her, shes awesome and probably one of the best teachers i've ever had
Hardest teacher ever. Also probobly the best I've ever had. I've never had a stapler thrown at me before.
Really nice but doesn't know how to do math...especially when doing grades
Way Cool!! But impossible grader. Also, annoying when leaving poetry assignments when absent. Your A papers are way too nerdy
