I had Mrs. Ciona before she retired in Grade 9. What an awesome teacher. Got 91% in her class and she was super humorous to the kids. Told mainly adult jokes so if you get offended by that stuff, suck it up. She's kinda strict, but kinda laid back enough that she's not in your face.
Aw mrs ciona is the nicest and sweetest teacher ever. People say she's strict but she's strict for the better. She's managed to help me keep my la mark in the 90s which I am forever grateful for <3
Ill miss her next year and ill try to keep in touch
She is very intelligent. Like other comments, she is VERY MOODY!! One day the sweetest, most helpful and cheerful, the next... she has anger management issues. Other wise, she is very helpful and teaches material great!! Overall, I'd say she's a pretty good teacher.
P.S she is different.
Good at teaching LA but really strict you have to call home if you forget a pencil!!! Also lies sometime she say's everytest is worth like 20 % or our whole year. If you have here don't for get your pencil and red ink pen.
She's such a fun teacher and finds a way to make us laugh and enjoy learning. She is not completely clear on certain things and changes her mind to much. Still a pretty good teacher.
The first year with her was very difficult. But after she tought me to actually do homework my marks went from 60% to 80%. She is really strickt but as long as you do your homework you will slide by with detentions. Overall she is a great teacher and is there when ever you need her.
She is energetic and a bit eccentric at times, but she prepares you well for language arts in high school, overall good. Though you may not like her now, you appreciate her later.
Mrs. Ciona is a fun, energetic teacher who is fun to be around, but she is never clear enough about due dates and gives us too many outlines and stuff that are supposed to "help" with the project. I spend loads of time doing outlines I don't need too.
Overly dramatic, but in a good way. Hilarious, gives lots of assignments and is understandable. One of the best teachers I've ever had.
Hands down best language arts teacher ever!! She is tough, in a way that says I am nice enough to care. She is also hilarious!! I also like how she makes learning la so fun and interesting
You're very kind but act a little odd sometimes. It would be helpful for you to be specific around difficult subjects
I Dont Know Why Everyone Does't Like Her, She's Pretty Awesome :)
Your funny but you need to teach and be more clear about due dates
ooooooooooo my first name is the same as hers i can't wait to get her as a teacher woot!!!!!!!!!!!
i can fall asleep in anyone's class except for hers, she was a really nice teacher! and she made my marks go up a lot! thanks you Mrs. Ciona
She makes some things fun, others...not so much. Why do you want us to spend family day on homework? ON PURPOSE! Always gone, and subs can't teach as well. Always rushing, stressing us out! You can hardly evry write or do projects on a topic of your choice. She chooses everything!
I hated that project..... i wish she just let us do our own research and stop with the outlines.... I spent more time trying to do the papers and outlines than the actual project.
the gr.9 la project when did was really unreasonalble. she tried to control things to much. just let us be!
Nice teacher, but she knows how to piles the homework!
Always makes sure that we are interested in class. She makes LA fun! Some of the ads she picked for our unit were quite funny, interesting, and just made the unit feel so much funner!
She makes really interesting lesson plans! They keep us interested and awake every day! A little effort goes a long way, and she really proves this!
She's nice and all, but gives us so little time to do assignments and projects, but takes weeks marking letters! PRACTICE WHAT YOU PREACH!
She's cool, I've only had her for 3 weeks, but I like her already.
Omg, you people are very dumb students. What are you talking about? Ciona is a reallllyy good teacher!! She taught me so much in English. Yeah so she rushes you a lot, makes you call home when you forget things, makes you fill a sheet when you dont do your homework. But thats her job as a teacher! She's amazing and I was so lucky to have her because she made English fun and she's a very fun and funny person herself. Plus she really understands us teenagers.
She can be strict sometimes. Her assignment due dates are impossible - “This six page essay is due by the end of class!”
cionas a good teacher man. the only bad part about being ur her class is that she makes you call home if u forget like a pencil
She's a good teacher, although shes hard and a tough marker, you get your work done, mrs.ciona, you're a good teacher.
I thought she was really nice and caring. She was really strict, but it got things done. I liked her.
Good teacher. Just ask her what you need and she'll explain. If you don't, you won't get anything. Her extent of discipline makes sense.
I had her the first year she was teaching at VB. I thought she was a great teacher.
she gets a bad rap, but hey, she can be really funny sometimes, and shes the best language arts teacher I've ever had
she makes u call home a lot :( ex. when you forget your whiteout in your locker
Every once in a while she's funny, but mostly shes strict with too much homework
you cannot expect us to finish a in-class writing assignment in 10 min!!!
HELLO! We can't do the assignment if you don't explain it first!
