I had Ms. Sabatini as a Freshman 1999 and junior 2001. She was the only teacher to ever take an interest in helping me and noticed when people were struggling personally and not afraid to confront them. She was also not afraid to put anyone in their place and teach them respect! I know that made me a better person and changed the way I act towards others. To this day I still think of her manner lessons everytime I introduce people. She is a wonderful caring person and you will never be bored!
I had Ms. Sabatini back in 2014 and use her lectures still to this day to help me through college. She changed my outlook on my academics and taught me how to think critically for myself and handle tough situations. I'll never forget her! Best teacher I've ever had.
Ms. Sabatini changed my life. I currently attend a top University and in training to become a United States Marine Corps Officer. She showed me how to tackle complicated tasks, handle stress, proper formal etiquette, and how to excel in my academic career. I hated English before Ms. Sabatini, but now I excel in any form of writing I am tasked with. I use the format, skills, and vocabulary I learned to this day. Ms. Sabatini is my favorite teacher and one of the reasons I am the man I am today.
One of the best teachers I have ever had. She taught me so much, ranging from etiquette to controlling stress. I absolutely loved her.
Take her class. If you're a troubled student, take her class. She cares deeply about education and is an integral part of the community at large. It's been 5 years since I've taken her class... She can change your life for the better as she did I!
My hardest teacher ever in my 17 years of learning. Being her pupil was an absolute honor. Never have I expanded so much in vocabulary and overall knowledge. A highly inspirational teacher. She is a very reasonable teacher and plans the entire year for her students ahead of time. She really makes you think critically and biggest phrase from her is "think before you speak." Although extremely strict, that doesn't mean that she lacks a sense of humor. She turns cowards into confident adults.
Real Hard, but she respects and encourages each and every student. Best teacher to have to prepare you for what is to come in college. Amazing
Lisa Sabatini will cause you to fear for your life. I kid not. Even if you're her favorite student, she will instill in you terror unimaginable. She is extremely strict. She's very clear on instructions if you know how to read them carefully, but you will still be terrified that you'e doing something wrong. Even if you think you'll dread the "etiquette lessons" she does, you'll find yourself looking forward to them. If nothing else, however, she WILL teach you how to write.
I was so scared when I got her but I have never learned so much in one class. Just listen and do your work and your set! She isn't really that hard as people all say. Sabs will make u a better person
she will change your life, teach you how to think, make you question everything you know, and expand your mind. Do not miss an opportunity to learn from her. Best teacher I've ever had.
Sab is so great and helpful. She has developed her own strange but effective method of teaching in which many of her peers are extremely jealous of. She respects students, so we respect her.
Ms. Sabatini's class is very unlike any other English class I've ever taken in my life, and I find the Etiquette lessons to be interesting. She's strict but fair. She is also very influencing :)
I was a student of Lisa Sabatini throughout the 1984 school year. She was the most difficult teacher I've ever had but by far the greatest positive influence to my success. SRVHS needs more like her.
By far the most complicated and compelling teacher ever. In retrospect, her severity served me best lessons I've learned both as a person and as a professional (English teacher). Truly an original and
i was in her class for all of two days before i had to switch out because of a schedule conflict and i knew that her style of teaching was not for me...every class is intense and she is very strict...
I like the way she is not afraid to be disliked or discipline kids. Some teachers are too worried about being liked and you learn nothing. She doesn't care and you learn alot.
best teacher ever one of the few classes that i actually learned anything in. has a fantastic style and is way confident. she has had a rough life but that has only made her stronger
A true Diva. Has an enormous ego. Has a plaque that she completed Anger Management on her desk... I don't think it really helped. Incredible teacher & very helpful. Don't challenge her authority!
Very intimdating at first and grades hard, but will give you knowledge of the English language and social skills that will last you for life. Easily the best English teacher I have ever had.
She may be scary at first, but if you pay attention she is an amazing lady. She taught me so much, she's a hard teacher, but you learn to love her.
Every day in her class was a chalenging experence, she expects every student to try their best, but it will pay off in the end. Also NO HOMEWORK
This woman is one of the greatest teachers ever to grace SRVHS.
Sabs in AMAZING! she's creative and passionate and a very good teacher
I had Ms. Sabatini in the 80's. Now I am writing my graduate thesis, and I STILL write my essays the way we learned in her class at San Ramon Valley High.
SABATINI IS THE BEST TEACHER....I LOOK FORWARD TO HER TEACHING.....YOU LEARN A LOT FROM ETIQUETTE.....
Miss Sabatini is the coolest! She is the most exotic teacher u will ever encounter but she teaches u so much. If u don't appreciate it now, u certainly will!!!!
Ms. Sabatini is the best teacher I have ever had, she is a little scary but if you get her to like you, you shouldn't have a problem in the class!!
Sabatini is a great teacher! A little bit scary and intimidating, but her outbursts are funny if they're not directed to you.
She has a strangely refreshing alternative to "formal" teaching.Great teacher with good curriculum, many are just not used to her machiavellian/socratic style.
A bit scary at first, but if you get to know her, she's an awesome teacher... the best at S.R. and the only one I've seen wear fishnets...
yah she's one interesting (and terrifying) woman. her class was definately a different experience... but sometimes it was very entertaining
i had her first period freshman year. not such a good way to start out high school. be afraid, freshmen, very afraid.
Sab is one of the best teachers that I have had. Although I feared going to her class everyday, and she made me cry twice, I am thankful that i had her
I had Sabs for two years and its impossible to describe the experience to those who have never taken her class. By far the best teacher at SR!
Miss Sabatini is a very interesting person. She did scare me to death, and I dreaded going to her classroom. I didn't learn English, but I did learn ediquette.
If she wrote an autobiography I'd definitely read it.
Ms. Sabatini is the most unique individual I have ever met. Lisa is about the tough love, she's the football coach us nerds never had.
A bit eccentric, but an amazing Teacher, who prepared me more for college than all of my other teachers combined.
Sabo is the best teacher at SR. She's unorthodox but brilliant. There's no one better at getting us to think at SR. She's the best
Ms. Sabatini, although on occasion fighting a losing battle with an italian temper, increases her students ability to withstand future intimidating situations.
Mrs.Sabatini the best at TEACHING at our school. She is one smart woman.
undecided. i like her better now that i dont have a class with her, she seems bitter. There's no reason to take out your anger against the world on ur students!
