She's nice, but my main issue with her is that she forces her students to follow her methods and grades them on compliance. She doesn't seem to follow the notion that each student works differently. If I write my essay differently than she does, my grade reflects it. Makes class very difficult.
nice lady and teacher
I took Creative Writing with her and she made it really fun. Really enjoyed everything we did.
She does not teach and her class is extremely boring. Her class is waste of time.
Ms. Valenza's class has become my favorite class I have ever taken in High School. Don't listen to what anyone else here says. She's an incredible person and teacher. There is busy work, but in the end, she is amazing. Get her!
she's alright. i have her for creative writing. her assignments are pretty damn easy if you actually just take the time to do them, and even then they're super stupid and common sense. her projects are just tedious, not really difficult. wish she would go easy on the grading though, nice teacher overall if you get to know her (and you don't have to be a girl, i'm a guy and she treats me really well)
Valenza is very helpful, even if you are not in her class. She took the time before school to help me with an article I wrote for journalism.
she was realllly helpful and met withme one on one to talk about my project, gives a lot of work but so worth it
If you happen to be in her class, switch teachers immediately. She gives out very elementary assignments and projects. For example, she wanted the class to write about all the cliques we have in school (really???). I regret staying in her class for the whole year. THE worst English teacher ever.
Ms. Valenza is aawweesommme!!!!!! Today she was hilarious! The cartoons were so much fun! Much love Ms. V!
Eh... not that bad comapred to all of the other horrible english teachers in our school
Can skim down on some of the "un-needed" projects (webquest, etc). More practice on indentifying literary elements and on grammer during the year for the final
She is a very nice teacher. Do not give a lot of hw.
the webquest was the worst and she so unfair. today i argued with her over one . i think she has an attitude. Kara Freedman
