Best teacher I ever had. Since Spanish is his second language, he understands what it is like, and teacher accordingly to everyone's needs. Kind-hearted and displays zero percent negativity.
I have two students in his class. my children think hes the GREATEST TEACHER EVER! THATS HARD TO COME BY!
senor Barkley is a great teacher, but will only help you if you are will to put in some effort; but, he will help you. to bad my spanish teacher has moved to France
for all you people who say you didnt learn anything in his class, you obviously didnt pay much attention, i thought that he was a great teacher. i learned alot and had a great time doing it. after my mean spanish one teacher, it was great to get mr. barkley for spanish 2, and now again for spanish 4, it doesnt get much better than that!
i had him last yr he is so tight and i actually learned a lot without him being mean or a hard teacher, u should all hope 2 get him
I had Mr. Barkley for 2 years and OMG! he's so sweet! At first, Spanish terrified me, but eventually he made me feel so much better about the language. He's really funny, but a lot of the time he doesn't mean to be. He's got a good heart! Unlike another Spanish teacher at Langley, he's understanding and won't make fun of you if you're having trouble speaking. He's very helpful!
I graduated Langley a few years back and had David Barkley for spanish 1 and 2. He's the best teacher I had at that school (in fact in Fairfax County altogether) and I was in the county for 13 years so that says something. I will always remember him for the nice, kind-hearted individual that he is. There should be more people in the world like him today.
If you get Barkley: try and get on his good side so that he will always have a future nature of liking you. He is really nice but he has his days of randomly freaking out, so dont get on his nerve at those moments. If you study what he tells you to, you will do perfectly fine.
I absolutely LOVED Sr. Barkley. I had him for 2 years and I learned so much in his class. He is so much fun and he was my favorite teacher by far. You're lucky if you get him.
He's so awesome and hilarious, but as a teacher he isn't the best. His class is extremely easy compared to other teachers, which could be good if you actually learned something in that class.
He tries to be nice to everyone, but has his favorites. His class runs too slow. Have something to read with you at all times. For the final he gaves us the answers to a few questions.
i had him for spanish 2 last year, and i really enjoyed the class. i thought it was a very easy class, but he was a very nice teacher and very helpful.
He knows exactly what he's doing and how to teach high schoolers, but people tend to take advantage of his kind nature, making the class go much slower than it could (a bad thing).
i had barkley in spanish 2- he was a really good teacher... funny and nice too- i totally recommend him
a little too easy for me, but it was fun. very interesting.
Great man, great class, super easy, but I didn't really learn anything so I was screwed tjsi year. Not his fault though. Have fun
ok...wats up with the man and chiquitas bananas....total pushover...and we don't even talk spanish at all. totally easy!!!! but he's pretty nice and helpful.
mr.barkley can´t speak spanish. he is the worst teacher ever.
