Mrs. Dillon was the most difficult teacher for my student, as she would start one research paper, and as the students were trying to finish it, another paper would be given to them, etc. By the middle of November, my daughter was just polishing off the research paper, in the middle of another, and starting the last one. She basically had no holiday breaks because of writing. so, that is my view, in a nutshell - I do wish future students well - hang in there!
VERY DIFFICULT GRADER SWITCH OUT. LOSES PAPERS VERY EASILY
Grades incredibly harshly. Gives no breaks to students. Has a condescending tone and is quite arrogant over her knowledge. In reality, she knows very little and give awful analyis. Very bad teacher. Hard to pay attention to. Takes everything too seriously.
She never seems prepared for class and is not clear when giving directions at all. Many times she will deduct points for things she never told us to do. However, she is really understnading that we are seniors and does not always check the homework assigned and will give us the answers when we do turn it in for the people who didn't do it. This might also be annoying though cause she assigns a lot of busy work which we don't always turn in. On the upside she really crew about her students.
Not organized, not clear, assigns a ton of busy work that she *almost* never checks. Often she will analyze a book, then not explain her reasons. A lot of it seems speculative and unsubstantiated.
She shouldn't be teaching anymore. Smart, but doesn't ever know what's going on or what she wants. Never explains assignments, gives so much busy work. Nice person, but terrible teacher.
Mrs. Dillon is so awesome! She is very nice and easy to talk to, but her classes can be very hard. Get to know her, she is super cool.
Mrs. Dillon will make you work hard but it is all for a reason. You really will learn in her class and will take away a ton. She's a really helpful person and is a great person to just talk to.
Mrs. Dillon is great! While the class is a hard (which is should be), she is always willing to help. i definitely recommend her
She is very nice if you do the work and will help with anything.
Ms. Dillon is deffinately a demanding teacher. She expects a lot from her students, but is incredibly nice and really loved all of her students and her subject. Not an Easy class, but worth the work.
Yes, she's hard, but she knows so much! If youget her, take advantage of everything she knows. She loves Dubliners and loves to hear student's opinions. Definitely worth the year of intense AP work.
This woman taught me everything i know about english.she is a harsh grader, but it makes any other english class a breeze.she can be funny when it suits her. not the most fun class but a great TEACHER
she's not that bad, but her class is really hard... a lot of work if you want an A and also she loses your stuff a lot... really harsh grader
I love mrs Dillion!!! <333 Best english teacher ever!
she's not that bad. i didn't like her at first but she's grown on me. she's not the best teacher i've ever had but she's a good teacher and i like what we're learning. it's a good idea to respect her.
i loved mrs dillon- for world civ freshyear. it was hard but she really is a great person.i have stayed close with her throughout my 4 years. good person to get a reccomendation from
This class is so hard (HONORS). It is hard to talk with her. She's not clear on due dates. She also wins every argument u put up with her. Just dnt even bother arguing.
Mrs. Dillon is funny, if she likes you. She is extremely unorganized though, and there are lots of communication problems about when assignments are due. If you do the work, she'll appreaciate you.
Do your homework, pay attention, dont lie, and DONT be cruel to others. You will love the year! She is great. Quite funny also. She is a really hard teacher at first! HONORS are hard!.. do ure best!!!
shes a great person to talk to..not so great at teaching
shes a pretty good teacher and i actually came out of the class learning a lot. i can still remember what all of the stories are about. although it is a challenging class, and som
shes ok, its not like shes mean or anything, its just that its not interesting and she reads wat we already read, we do some hard assignments to.
She's not a bad english teacher. she just can be a little boring sometimes. and i like how she NEVER plays favorites. shes reasonable and fair so just work for your grade
her eyes and cackling are bearable. if you aren't on her good side = guilty until proven innocent
In all honesty I would rather have Mrs. Dillon be aunt than my teacher. When you talk to her, she's really cool and smart, but when she is teaching, she is SO BORING!
pretty good, but she kind of scares me a little with her eyes
get to know her, it helps, study odd facts, READ ALL MATERIAL once again in the morning or class before
ms. dillon is really nice and very knowledgable about english.
she is kinda nice, but she needs to lay off the IM questions and SUPER hard tests
good teacher, challenging class but fun overall (if it was joined w/ mc namara!!!)
gives work w/ syllabus & then after you have done work based on syllabus & turned it in, changes syllabus; reviews same hmwk over, though already have
She used to give assignments and leave out directions, then when the whole class does it wrong she marks everyone down.
shes definitely biased, she has her favorites, and she hates sports players. dont cheat here, shell hate u for the rest of the year.
I've known her for 4 years and the trick is just to do something outrageous early on. If she remebers you from day to day, you'll get and "A."
