I've had Mrs. Pirocchi as a Teacher for a semester in French. It is very important that you are organized and well-behaved in this class, as this is what will mainly determine your success in this class. She does not hesitate in giving detentions to those who slack off or misbehave. She is otherwise very knowledgeable and helpful. She prepares you well for tests and assignments, and will provide many worksheets to ensure that you have learned everything correctly. She is clear and comprehensive.
I had her for gr. 10 pre-ib, gr. 11 & gr. 12 and each year got better and better! She's definitely harder on her gr. 9's & 10's, but if you continue taking french, the number of students dwindles and the class becomes a family. Pros - great learning atmosphere, fun activities & review games, does make-up tests if the class does poorly; Cons - lots of note-copying, checks homework daily, rarely lets students gold card, can't get away with non-uniform...ever. Overall, one of my favourite teachers!
I was so prepared for university french because of Ms. Pirocchi. She's an excellent teacher.
She knows her subject area extremely well and delivers it well.
Hard marker but she teaches you very well. She prepared me very well for the exam....if you get her in the future get a big binder! Lots of note paper!
I had pirocchi for gr.9 french & was more than a little scared of her. however, gr.10 french was a totally different story. she was super nice and seemed to truly enjoy teaching&interacting with us.
If you value your sanity, you don't want this teacher.
I had her for gr 10 french. She made the class fun with fun games. do not b late or else.WOW. she can b grumpy but again can be very nice. she knows her stuff.vive le france!!
Shes an amazing teacher when it comes to teaching the class important things but is very grumpy! Dont make her mad and pay attention if you have her!
total witch! don't get her from grade nine core french! she only likes people who kiss up
What can i say? she is a very good teacher in my opinion but she could lighten up a bit
She's really grumpy, and so it makes you feel uneasy about approaching her for anything. This, in turn makes me very very confused. She makes you feel dumb.
