her class is messy and i think she's a hoarder... so it is likely she will lose your assignments. she's rude to students and doesn't have a clear agenda. she goes off in her own world and makes up the classwork as she teaches... horrible teacher.

Very disorganized; everything is pretty last minute, from making quizzes to posting grades. She goes on a tangent when it comes to class discussions. She made is do one-pager essays daily which helped with my writing but honestly I just pumped them out without much thought. I BSed most of the course and got a B and a 4 on the AP test so whatever. But I wouldn't recommend her, she teaches poorly.

Mrs. Floto makes a terrible excuse for an APEL teacher. She claims she prepares you for it while half the time I think she makes a big joke out of it. Nobody knows what they are doing. On the day of the final, someone was crying. She read out everybody's answers on a quiz that we took and made fun of each individual answer. A teacher is supposed to help the student; not to make fun of them. The class is not worth it. It will hurt your self-esteem and your grade.

Horrible teacher, whose class consists of reading books/ articles, being quizzed on them randomly, and doing one pagers. That's literally the foundation of the class. She posts hw as late as 8, she never had a syllabus, and it took her 3 months to post one of my tests. Nothing fun in this class and u never know your absolute grade in the class as it fluctuates due to her tardiness of posting grades. If you're in am.lit and get her, I advice switching to corbell at the end of the semester.

She is a VERY understanding teacher if you explain your struggles or issues. Her teaching is not dumbed down or too difficult. She can be forgetful and might go off about her personal life or opinions. Make sure to elaborate your points on your essays and assignments. She can jump to conclusions about you not understanding the material or not even reading.

She's seems like a nice person, but not the greatest of teachers. She tends to post homework very late into the night, and the instructions are occasionally less than specific. Her quizes/tests are usually made on the spot, and are random as they are hard.

If you want a teacher who really encourages you to look deep into the text, Floto is close to alright. However, because of her work in Speech and Debate, she procrastinates on her work as a teacher and she rambles off about her life half of the time.
If you're stuck with her, just read the text carefully. Don't SparkNote it and if you talk to her about why you couldn't read due to sports, she might understand.
Her political commentaries are ok if you're neutral on the spectrum.

If you're unlucky enough to get her 1st semester for am.lit, I advice switching out by the end. If you're in apel, drop out ASAP (unless you're good in reading). Be prepared to deal with a teacher who posts hw really late at night, disorganized, someone who takes forever in updating grades, and who is religiously/ politically biased. One time, it took her 3 months to post one of my tests; and she didn't even have a syllabus on the first day of school. Hard quizzes with Q's she makes on the spot.

She is a very nice person and her class is always full of laughter or confusion. Personally i love her, she is never mean or hurtful. Her class is kinda difficult though, because its not very organized or clear... and her quizzes and tests are always so difficult. Especially for American Lit, we would read books and she would go over them, but her quizzes were WAY harder, as if she thought we could think that deep... In general if you get her just pray. love her though

Floto certainly has an opinion about most political affairs. Unless you're completely deaf, it's nearly impossible not to know how she feels regarding the latest Capitol Hill scandal. However, this in no way affects how she grades (seeing as how it's mostly completion work anyway), and as long as you present clear logical arguments, she grades based on her many years of English experience. Don't be afraid to voice your opinions. Floto prefers that over someone remaining in the silent majority.

Her belligerent, propagated spewing of misinformed "thought" are the bane of my existence. I will admit, she has VERY profound knowledge of what we read, but when she moves into modern topics, her knowledge drops to that of a narrow-minded individual. I'm one of the few who have dared to tell her she is wrong, and I never laughed so hard in my life. Her lectures are an exercise in tedium and annoyance. I've never harbored such pity for someone like her. The bittersweet countdown to leave burns.

so floto. it is difficult to describe her. she sticks with her opinion, argues with opposing ideas, and never gives in to say she was wrong. in a sense, shes always right, not on earth though, shes just right in her own floto-verse. its the floto states of america. that is my life every day.
