Extremely hard class but is well worth it if you want to learn Spanish. I came out of that class knowing more Spanish than others in a level higher than myself.

She is an amazing teacher with so much knowledge. Because of her, Spanish was incredibly easy later. She truly enjoys teaching and does so much work outside of class. She gives a lot of homework, but it is so worth it because you learn so much more.

Dreaded her class. I learned a lot, but mostly because I was afraid of her yelling at me for messing up. She picks favorites. I didn't talk a lot so she assumed I was a slacker and treated me like it.

Many people don't like her, but I think she's wonderful! I am learning so much. It's great how much class time she spends speaking the language so you actually get a feel for it.

This being my first F.L. teacher, since 8th grade, I can understand why it's so hard. She is a cool teacher though.

She isn't very helful and she once yelled at a kid for bleeding on the hall pass. He just wanted to go to the nurse! She's pretty mean.

I had such a hard time keeping my steady B. She's passionate about what she does, but she needs to cool it and look at her students, not look at the ceiling.

If you get an answer wrong, she gets really mad. And she is rude to everyone in the class except the ones who have straight A 's

Last year I loved Spanish and was excited to learn it. With Varela, I almost dread to enter her classroom. She's so... mean during class, but after she's so nice! It's like she's a different person! I wish she could be more consistent.

Mrs. Varela is very hard, but she teaches really well, I've learned so much in that class in one day then I have all year in some classes. Even though she's not the most friendly teacher in the world she'll teach you anything about spanish.

I learned so much with Sra. Varela and if you just try in her class you can do nothing but succeed. If you listen to what she says she is actually a smart and funny lady.

If a teacher puts on a happy face everytime you get something wrong then you know it's ok with them, in Varela's case you KNOW she is disappointed and that she expects more from you so you try harder and that's how you learn.

I think you can teach well if you changed your personality. You think you're the best and you're never wrong and dont listen to students. NO ONE CARES ABOUT QUOTES!

Yeah, she's hard, but she is by far the best foreign language teacher I have ever had! I learned more from her 1-2 class than I did from my previous 3 years of spanish combined!
