Ms. Cremin is amazing. Her class is very very challenging but she genuinely wants you to do well & guaranteed you will learn a ton. GO TO X BLOCK. She is always so kind and helpful and really appreciates when students come to talk to her. The pop quizzes are easy to predict. If you have a homework on vocab the night before, you will probably have a quiz the next day (that's something she tells you if you go to x-block). Make sure to participate in her class discussions!

She's a good person and an okay teacher. Yes, while she gives out pop quizzes, they actually help me out a lot in terms of knowing what I need to work on. She is helpful during X block and is so incredibly kind. Really doesn't want you to worry & gives you chocolate.

Ms. Cremin is a good person (?), but unquestionably a terrible teacher. Her standards are unrealistically high and her ACP and Honors classes are basically doing the same thing. She gives out a ton of homework, pop quizzes almost everyday, and her exams are impossible. If you have her I wish you luck.

She has incredibly difficult quizzes with material that was not always taught.She will try to help you if you go in for extra time,but she does not fully answer questions.She does not seem to understand that if everyone in the class gets questions wrong that the test is unfair,or that it is bad if her honors course is doing the exact same work as her regular course.Many people in my class have switched out,and I think this is because of her as a teacher, not because of the course being too hard.

Nice Person but You're a fail in the class if you're not some sort of brainiac, doesn't seem to understand the fact that other teachers assign homework to and maybe even difficult projects to much work for people who are just trying to meet the criteria to go to a college

Ms. Cremin has a really bad rep which I think is why people don't even bother to try in her class. She's a great person and she actually cares about teaching her students. Yeah, she doesn't exactly have the best teaching methods and she gives too many quizzes, but other than that she's pretty cool. People should respect her more

Although seemingly knowledgable, Ms. Cremin has vaultingly high expectations of her ACP class. The workload is incredibly unmanageable and tedious, she regularly assigns busy work that is completely useless (I just finished hand-copying vocab for an hour) and the pop quizzes come so frequently I find myself bombing more of them then doing well. I dread coming to class because even though I spent hours doing her homework, I fear the next pop quiz she will give will drop my grade even lower.

She is a widely despised teacher by her students, however I must disagree with people saying she's a terrible teacher. She helped me more than any other teacher with language learning and life skills. She gave students ridiculous workloads to challenge her students, because she believed her students were capable. She is secretly a great teacher and a great human being

I loved her. Sure, she is a little neurotic about certain things, but if you show effort in the class, and actually do your work, she's great. Of course, I had her for Curriculum 1, and I have heard her Honors courses are challenging, but still. She's awesome, and honestly does want her students to learn Spanish. She has a kind of bad rep, which seems undeserved, and is probably a result of her upper level courses being challenging, and people in her lower level courses not putting in effort.

To put simply, Miss Cremin is a very nice terrible person. Knowing full well that she is being of no use to anyone around her, she frequently assigns more work than a student can handle. With frequent pop quizzes that take far too long for her short allotted time. Only one student in my class received an A. Miss Cremin, although a nice person, is one of the worst teachers I ever have. It should be considered a miracle that I continue the language next year.

rare to find such an absolute waste of a human in an educator. Not enough characters to describe the horror of a person that she was. Got a high from seeing kids FAIL in an honors course, and took no responsibility when no one passed the class.

Took Spanish 3 Honors. Liked her as a person, but very difficult. Learned a lot and she liked us, but lost her cool several times over minor things. NSD quizzes over the play are terrible. Definitely possible to get a good grade overall tho.

From a parent I found her uncommunatve, rude and downright the worst teacher ever. Needlessly syressing out the students. Very unprofessional and all around poor role model, frequently losing assignments and her cool with both parents and students.

Dear Ms. Price,
Ms. Cremin is definitely not someone you should employ at Newton North. She is not interested in educating her students, she seems to take pride in making them miserable. In 25 students in my classes, every single one hates her.

HATED this teacher. I was in her honors class and even though I managed not to get C's I dreaded her class everyday. She usually gives dumb pop quizzes that only lower your grade, and she spends time on useful things. As I reflect, I can't even remember half the vocal she taught us because she kind of terrified us into memorizing them. Good Luck to those who have her.

The WORST spanish teacher Ive ever had. You know that something's not right, if over 60% of the class gets a D or worse on so many tests. And this was a curriculum 1 class.
