First off, Im an awesome student. Second off, she hated me. Like I listened and payed attention and respected her. Other students would constantly bad talk her behind her back. She FORCES you to put your backpack at the back of the classroom. I HATE THAT. I dont feel safe leaving my backpack with valuable possesions away from me. She marks you tardy if you come back to class .5 seconds late after lunch. That is not a joke. She is REDIC.

Mrs. McClelland was very helpful to me. I wasn't her best student but I tried hard, did my homework, and paid attention in class. She knows we're all not good at languages. She was nice to me.

If you get on her bad side then your life will be miserable. Class it self isn't that bad, I just didn't really like the teacher. She's the reason I'm not taking higher spanish.

Lol she is so loud! always energetic and hyper. Personally, her class was very difficult, but you'll get an A the year after, because she is such a good teacher. You can't not learn anything from her.

she's an okay teacher. if you forget something and ask her to re-explain it, she acts like you're asking her for 1 grand. Also, she speaks absoulutley NO SPANISH in her class. which is as bad thing.

Let's just say.. Don't get on her bad side.. do your homework and it will be an easy class.. that is if you have Spanish 3 with her. And her classes are pretty boring also. Always do your homework!

She's such a good teacher. I've learned more from her class than I learned in Spanish 1 & Spanish 2 combined. She can be boring at times, but she's always there to answer any questions you have.

I thought some of these same things for a long time too. But, when you think about it, she is as genuine and caring a teacher as you'll find and you'll notice it if you just put forth the effort.

Great teacher-her class helped me in AP more than the AP class itself! Very informative class... By the end of the year, you will know at least one Spanish song-me: A Dios le Pido!
