She knows what she's talking about. Constantly gives you quizzes left and right. Low key attractive. She always made you feel bad if you didn't know a vocab word or anything. She always told you that you would not succeed in life if you didn't learn the preterito form.

Absolute worst teacher ever, thank god she's gone. The replacement is much better (Sernatinger). He's not as knowledgeable but definitely adequate for Spanish 2 and is very funny and very nice, the exact opposite of her. Example Situation: student doesn't get something. DeCosta: You should listen in class more. -5 points Sernatinger: That's absolutely fine and it's great that you're not getting it! Otherwise what would be the point of going to school? Try remembering it this way...
