I had Sra. Giambra in eighth grade and let me tell you, I hated the memorizing of the verbs and the projects. LOVED her, but I remember her class was a lot of work. However, I just finished tutoring a student from RU High who is in 10th grade and her vocabulary was next-to-nothing and her conjugations a hassle. Do yourself a favor and love this woman as a teacher bc you'll never have another like her! Passionate, helpful, and knows her stuff!

Señora Giambra is a very good teacher. The class is not too hard if you do most of the homework. You might not like her though. She always tell weird stories. She also loves to smack her ruler into the side of her desk and to blow her whistle in class. There is a very easy way to get on her good side though. All you have to do is discuss the Boston Celtics with her and she will immediately love you. Her jokes are terrible, but if you can bear it, laugh and she will like you.

She loves what she does and you can tell, she has a true passion for spanish and teaching. All you have to do is show her that you're trying and you'll be fine. She will not like you if you slack.
