She is very intelligent, but at times she can be very strict.

She's a good enough teacher, but she doesn't want her students to do well. I'm in honors, and she even said on our first essay that no one was going to get an A because it was the first essay. She counts these essays three times, and they're absolutely killing by GPA. There isn't even anything you can do about it; she doesn't properly prepare you for them! On one essay she gave be a B- even though the grading rubric said "B." Every one of her previous students I know has said that she's awful.

I love her. She is a great teacher and made me a much better English student. However, she is a tough grader so you do have to work really hard to get the grade you want.

Such a great teacher. I learned a lot last year. Plus she has 2 melons on her chest to stare at whenever you're bored.

Nice personality but mostly has her head in the clouds. Over analyzes literature. Has the mind of a gossipy high schooler.

Good teacher. Strict homework policy (complete on time or it's a zero), but chooses good books for the class to read (The Things They Carried, The Kite Runner, Frankenstein) and keeps you on your toes.

Worst teachers EVER. If you get this teacher IMMEDIATELY switch out. It's worth not getting the honors credit if you have too. Wayyy too much homework, too many projects. In fact, I can even say the students teach more than she does with all those class "teaching projects". She's way too stuck up, and too in love with plays. STAY AWAY

Mrs. Palmiotto is one of the best english teachers I've ever had. She can be tough at times, but that is apart of what makes a good teacher. Just because she doesn't give out straight A's easily, or give "free candy every day" does NOT mean she is a bad teacher....it just means some students are dumb, and don't really understand what learning is.

I had Mrs P last year; she was pretty good. I know 3 of these bad ratings are by the same person who got a bad grade. (He told me.) She's a good teacher.
