She's a pretty good english teacher and a total lady gaga fan. She's really funny. But, you must always be on your toes when she's teaching because she picks on random people. So don't doze off! grading is fair.

Mrs Testa is loud and definitely honest ...very honest as is not afraid to curse out when she gets mad or very emotional about her books. People like her because of this. She does pick out favorites in her class and you can tell who they are b/c she will joke around with them. She is NOT sweet, she is harsh when talking but I guess that's just her personality. I liked the way she is enthusiastic about teaching. However, her teaching skills really aren't that great. The books are worth it to read though.

Amazing teacher, fantastic for AP Literature. She opened a whole new world to me through brilliant authors such as James Joyce and Toni Morrison, I could have never survived H.S. without her.

I had Ms. Testa in 93 and she was fantastic!!!! I was out of school for three weeks with mono and she helped me get caught up and I even earned a 90 in her class. She is a fair and helpful teacher. It you do your work you will have no problems.

Testa is the best English teacher I've had and that includes some of my NYU professors. People can't take the fact that she's honest and playful. I happen to love her attitude and I love the fact that she does not pamper her students. I love you Testa!

Shes good, as long as you do your work, you get a 90. In senior year, she'll let you have a day off. I think shes a retired hippie...take that as you want it to mean. She is funny and odd at times. Sometimes i think she needs ritalin or less of it. But
