Señorita Blackburn was the single-greatest teacher I ever had. I loved every minute I was in her class; she was a fantastic AP teacher (this was her first year teaching Sp. 4!) She was incredibly helpful; every bit as fantastic as Señora!

Mrs. Rudas is undoubtedly the only reason I have not dropped out of WHS. She's one of the few people capable of inspiring me and motivates me to do my best effort. I have learned so much from her class..probably the only practical class at WHS! -Dr.S

I HAVE to confidently say she is a GOOD teacher. I did have better Spanish 1 and 2 teachers at a different school who were more FRIENDLY and open to answering questions than her. She's an accommodating teacher but can sort of be RUDE (probably inherited it from her mom who I had for Spanish 3) with some things which is ANNOYING. That's why I give her a 2 in helpfulness!

I liked Miss Blackburn (now Mrs. Rudas) and had her for Spanish 2 CP. I came to WHS in the middle of the year from Calabasas and knew absolutely no Spanish 2 because my old Spanish teacher at Calabasas was horrible. However, she taught very well and made the class very worthwhile even though it could be challenging. I quickly caught up and earned an A with her help.

TQM Senora! One of the most dedicated teachers at the school. Yes, her class is difficult, but what else can you expect from an AP Spanish course? She's very reasonable & grades fairly. She doesn't assign too much homework. The song tests are a great way to boost your grade. Be kind to her, and she will be kind back! Oh, and use lots of fancy adjectives in your writing and your "si" clauses, and she will adore you. Take her class, and you will essentially become fluent Spanish.

True, she is very moody/intimidating at times, but she really does have good intentions. You will learn spanish no matter what and she is so dedicated and hard working. One of the best teachers at WHS by far. She has the biggest heart for her students and truly wants them to succeed. TQM SENORA!

Best teacher ever. Obviously she won't like you if you don't pay attention or don't try. She teaches at a fast pace, but knows what she's doing! One of the few real teachers in the department at WHS. If you can't learn Spanish from her, the problem's with you, not her.

Senora is a fantastic teacher. If you have questions after class she'll go above and beyond to help. There are times in class where she randomly gets angry, or gives you dirty looks for something....and she's scary and intimidating....BUT honestly, she is one of the most committed teachers at WHS

Spanish 4AP = BUSY WORK, and that's it. Basically a review of Spanish 1-3 with a few new things thrown in there. However, you'll become a lot better at speaking Spanish after having her. Her songs make the class fun, although after hearing Juanes 10 times in 1 year I wanted to scratch her CD ;)

Not gonna lie, you have to work to get a B, but she's the nicest, most amazing teacher ever. She is a kind lady and she's someone who you will want to talk to afterwards. I actually learned, and she's willing to stay after class to help! Love you Senora Blackburn!
