So so sweet, very helpful and easy to understand. Big difference from beirbaum. And just do your HW, that sad and disappointed look she'll give you if you dont is just heartbreaking. Youll learn a lot in this class

Extreme and Shocking change from M. Bierbaum. I'm shocked that there's a french teacher that isn't nuts. She's really nice and really easy to understand. Plus, if you get participation points you get to sit in "le cafe", a table in the corner of the room under a cafe painting, and eat girl scout cookies.

She is the sweetest woman. She loves to teach French and share the culture. French 1 and 2 are very easy while 3 and 4 are much harder, but she is a good teacher. She really cares about her students and wants to know about their lives. Whenever i do not do my homework, I feel so bad because she gives that parental "I'm not mad, just disappointed" look to me. She is very good at her job.

I love Mme Gawel, she is the sweetest woman you will ever meet. She knows her stuff too, she tries to teach us things that aren't in the book so thats cool too. I recently visited France, and because of her, I was able to have actual conversations with the locals. I definitely recommend her class!

Really great teacher and lady. French is a really easy class so there isn't much to say except that it's better than Spanish in every shape and form(no joke). Gawel is an awesome person who seems like she is out of the loop but she is just keeping her professionalism and such. Great teacher, probably one of my favorites, really nice lady.

Oh, Madame Gowel...very sweet lady! But her teaching was a little...well, she knows a lot about French, but her memory's a little less comprehensive. Prepare to spend whole periods learning the same things you did yesterday, as well as a love of rules - I couldn't get her attention, so I pulled out my phone to translate a word - confiscated!
I learned enough, but for me, the shining moment will always be the boy that yelled "F**K THIS" on the last day of school and ran out of the class.

Gawel is really chill. She really knows French. She often talks to the class in the language which can be confusing at times, but she really uses her hands and arms so that this is easier to understand. This helps you understand the language. She is also really nice and relatable.

She's really awesome, and I was lucky enough to have her for French 1. She had only 1 French 1 class this year, and i was incredibly lucky to be in it. Incredibly easy class, good teacher too.
