Ms. Massa is easily one of the greatest teachers I've had. She is very witty, sarcastic and definitely tells it like it is. Honors with her isn't horrible but she makes you work for great grades. She expects a lot but is there along the way to help you become better. Her quizzes are easy if you read, and we don't use a textbook since she's paperless. Be respectful of her and do your work and everything will be fine. She's such a great teacher!

You'll probably hate her in the beginning of the year, she acts kinda conceited, but has a good sense of humor. Make sure you do your work though or face the wrath of Massa. Near the end of the year, you'll enjoy her class.

If you aren't an English person, she'll whip you into shape. However, for some people, this kind of scare tactic may be a little overboard. She's funny, but also extremely scary at times.

Ms. Massa is so cool. She is hillarious and it's the best when she OWNS people in class. Don't take her too seriously though if she disses you. She is a good teacher/fair grader

Very feisty, sarcastic, and energetic. VERY funny. Best advice: make a good first impression, and play along with her, even if she makes fun of you in front of the class... lol

She is often cruel. While she does get us to learn- she is not really the nicest person. SHe teachers by fear- not genuine concern. How did she stay around this long?

Massa is a good teacher. She makes stuff interesting and casual.I love having arguments with her. But I think she needs to deflate her ego and act her age.

In all fairness, she takes her job seriously and doesn't PRETEND to know everything (unlike her "mini me," Zepka). However, she thinks she's one of us. Grow up.
