05/30/14 - Worst teacher I have ever had and I can't imagine ever having a worse teacher. I did not learn anything and feel like I have lost knowledge from her class. She does not take any feedback from students and yells when a student has a valid complaint. Show More Show Less

05/23/14 - Loved her second semester! The second half of the year was so different. Though she still was strict with cell phone rules, she was very flexible in helping you out when you asked for it. Show More Show Less

01/16/14 - Mrs. Phillips is the worst teacher that I have ever had. She is unfair, biased and stereotypical. She doesn't care about her students. Absent at least once a week if not more. If you can switch out of her class do it before its too late! I can't describe in words how bad this teacher is. Show More Show Less

12/18/13 - Seriously the worst teacher I have had. She is absent at least once a week so I dont even understand how she still has her job-I heard she did this last year too.sometimes she will be absent for two days and come back and give us a test on things she was never here to teach. She is the least understanding teacher ive had, if you politely disagree with her on something very reasonable she flips out and gets very defensive! Show More Show Less

10/20/13 - Okay teacher, sort of challenging. The 30303010 thing is sort of ridiculous because we have barely any grades so one grade is like 10%. The problem is we have had multiple subs(about ten) and we aren't even done with 1st quarter. Apparently she did that last year too.

05/15/13 - Dude you must be getting a bad grade. If sra speaks English, it is probabely because you don't understand Spanish and she is trying to help you. You sound like the angry one who is not getting what you want. Grow up and ask for help. She has helped some of my friends during her opens. Oh and the 30% is a department thing. Show More Show Less

08/11/12 - She did not like when students spoke in English, but they shouldn't be anyway because you're there to learn Spanish. She lets you speak in English at the beginning though, to answer questions and stuff. She has cool stories because she travelled all over the world, and likes to share experiences, and she really cares about the students understanding different spanish speaking countries. She does grade participation somewhat strictly, but if you answer a question about once a day you should be ok Show More Show Less
