Opinions, patriotism, and a lot of notes! But on the other hand, Ms. Elardo really knows her stuff, and give clear and interesting lectures for her lessons. Getting an A in her APUSH class is straight up difficult, so definitely read the book/outlines and study! Personality wise, Ms. Elardo was likable one moment, and then moody or angry the next. As for the AP exam, she did not prepare my class for the changed(passage based) exam, save for a few tests.
I freaking love Ms. Elardo, shes literally such a fun teacher. She knows what shes doing although he opinion will be thrown in there BUT she says when it is. If you don't like her, it's probably because you're a troublemaker. Once you get comfortable with her, you can't help but love her. Will not show me her prom picture though :(
I absolutely don't know why people don't like her. I think she is such a great teacher. She's probably my favorite at Arroyo. No, she doesn't always gives opinions; she just gives the facts as they actually are. You'd know when she's stating her opinion because she says "in my opinion." With all student opinions about her aside, she is a very smart teacher who knows her history front and back and vice versa. Personally, I think she's great and her patriotism makes her even greater.
hands down, realest teacher out there. pop hold it down
Ms. Elardo is a great teacher, but has an extremely bad temperament and has the tendency to give unsavory opinions during her lectures.
Good lecturer. engaging and covered a lot of materials. class isn't easy, but she prepares you well for AP. just make sure you study hard on your own too. i believe the AP is based on a curve still... finishing assignments/projects early is a must.
Those who love to learn love her; those who hate to learn despise her. She is strict and sometimes naggy, but she is an EXTREMELY dedicated teacher. One of the best in my opinion, second to Mr. Wong.
She's not scared to say what's on her mind and she's strict, but she makes U.S. history very entertaining and interesting. All I can say is she is a one of a kind, very unique!
I've learned a great deal during my time in her class which has even broadened how I looked at the world. It's a challenging class but rewarding if you put work into it.
I actually enjoyed my time in elardos depsite what everyone says about her. Its true that she inputs her opinion in alot of her lectures. She is also quite funny at times. :)
she may be moody at times, but she's a really great teacher. hw and tests are both easy. really knows how to teach history.
She's a funny teacher that often leeks unintended opinions in her lectures but any sensible person should be able to decide for themselves what is biased and what is historically accurate.
i hate it when people diss her. she's awesome. you learn a lot and she's funny. and she's not that tough as rumors have it--she lets us get away with a lot.
All of I've got to say to the haters is that yes, she can be mean, but other than that, she actually teaches!! Also, she's fun and it's very easy to get an A in her class.
often gives too much of her opinion but they are funny; great teacher
many ppl may think of her to be harsh....but seriously, she i one of the best history teachers ive ever had
she needs to shutup. she makes going to class horrible
Mrs. Elardo is trully one of the best teachers in Arroyo high school.
awesome teacher...really knows what shes talking about
She is a history expert, but seems to be "MEAN" to her students most of the times.
Elardo is seriously one of the most EFFECTIVE teachers any student could have. No one goes to AHS and graduates without hearing at least one story about her.
Tries to make students agree with her opinions. Horrible. Students should be free to state their opinions!
ease off on ur students....... AP is only AP...... its not the end of the world...... stop being a hypocrite of what you say....... keep ur opinion to yourself!!!
Too much hw. How does she expect us to read the book if she gives so much hw?? i don likey
you guys need to tone it down. She is a great teacher, she has things she needs to improve but overall she teach. and she protects many of the students from the less respectable teacher.
good history teacher, explains the deatil clearly, it's also easy to get a B
She can be moody but she's a history expert and has experience
I actually learned things from her class. It was a good change.
Nosey teacher...always tries to get Eastridge in trouble
stubborn: teaches out of Blue book not the book we take test on...so 1 clarity.
