Miss Serafin is my english teacher and she basically doesn't explain anything. She announced a comma quiz in september and we had it in November She completely forgets things and isn't very clear. I can never tell if something is being graded or just work that we do for practice. I don't think I have really learned much. She once called me a scholar because I sat in a seat because there were no seats and said that I could get an extra point. 2.75/10

She is very confusing. She will grade things she never said was due, or forget about something we have been working so hard on. It drives me insane. She also gets mad for no reason because she doesn't understand what is really happening. I wish she could be more clear. Her tests are easy though. But I don't like her as a teacher.

Lemme tell you about Miss Serafin. Not only is she the most unclear, confusing, and quite possibly senile teacher I have ever had, but she also grades literally everything you do for her class. Practice essays, your notes, everything. One time I raised my hand to answer a question, and she told me I was wrong. Then, another student raised their hand and said THE EXACT SAME THING and said he was right. Sometimes, she will say we have a quiz once and never talk about it again. 0/10.

Extremely disorganized. Will tell half the classes to do something for hw but not the other half. Recently her school wires glitched out and half the grade couldn't access her assignment page. Thankfully, she told us the assignments for the whole week but now she's completely changing it, even though half her students won't know. She's nice and her quizzes are pretty easy but she needs to get her act together.

Money. Trish is a doll. One time a few months ago I asked her how long my essay needed to be. She said the answer is yes. "what?" I proclaimed, she continued with her absolute nonsense, the answer is yes. Think about that, reader, I asked her how long my essay needed to be and she said the answer is yes. One time she told us a story about a car crashing through her house. "So Close..." I thought. Her wings are so majestic, that not even a Trish could imagine it. .Writer out. ***Mic drop***

Ms. Serafin is very... unique. She's like a young child, you want to get mad at them for messing up everything, but they seem that they don't know any better. The only problem is that she's like a bajillion years old. She's AMAZING with Romeo and Juliet. Other than than, she needs to get herself to a mental hospital now, or else God bless Americer.
