Mr. Balden is a pretty good teacher, but his classes are really boring and you don't really learn anything. The tests are super easy if you know the vocab so just use quizlet and you'll do fine.
He is a very empathetic teacher. I didn't learn a lot but I always enjoyed his class and he was always understanding and patient.
ABSOLUTELY the worst teacher. He plays favorites and doesn't know what he's doing. Switch out if you have the chance.
Great teacher. Teaches very well and always helps. Very nice and he may give a bit hw, but it helps alot for the tests.
I am actually surprised of the bad ratings about him. I mean he is IMO a pretty good teacher. He does care about his students and his teaching methods are really straight forward. Maybe he has been improved his teaching skills in the past years. Anyways thank you for an awesome year at Espanol III.
He is a chill dude, but his class are full of time consuming JED homework and the tests are quite hard. The good thing is he always gives out quiz corrections and his classroom is really clean.
Super nice teacher! Very knowledgable and super cool! Great experience-learned a lot!
Apparently a lot of people don't like him, but coming from a class in CVMS where the teacher taught absolutely NOTHING and expected to get an A on all her tests, he is amazing. It's funny when he tries to get the class to participate but when no one tries, he just does the activity himself or stares at each student individually. I personally think that he's the easiest and most fun spanish teacher and that you'd be lucky if you got him.
Ok well this is literally like a place of torture by the time that you have finished 1 day it will feel like an eternity because of how incredibly boring he is i have no other word to descrie him but BORING
If you pay attention, you'll quickly realize that greg (we're on a first name basis) is an amazing guy. Really good teacher. I would recommend self-teaching a little, dont just rely on class.
UGHHHHHH not only boring but really mean... Well, depending on his mood. Super bipolar :P
He is a really great teacher if you listen to what he is saying. If you don't care about the class, you won't learn and probably think it's boring.
He's a nice guy. But he's strict with certain policies like gum. He's not as good as Mr. Brockett because he doesn't have sympathy for us. But games were fun. Oral presentations were fun too.
its decent class but the class is very boring.....so easy to fall asleep.....maybe the boringest(?) class ever in my entire life...but good classoverall
Good teacher. The class is very boring. although i do like giving those little scene things in spanish. best way to make the class laugh because nothing really entertaining happens in that class.
ugh hate his class.it is the longest two hours of your day.if he hates your class,your doomed.he'll grade you down even if you do well.good luck surviving his class
He's a really easy teacher, though from what i've heard not as easy as the other spanish 3 teachers...you'll do a lot of presenting in front of the class and you'll learn what you need to know, bc he spends a lot of time teaching it.
Pretty easy teacher. Helps a lot when you ask for it. Talk a lot about basketball and you'll be on his good list. All in all, above average Spanish teacher.
Get on his good side hes super wierd watch his movie
Its pretty easy to get his on his good side, just stop messing around when he tells you to. Once your on his good side he grades pretty easily, leaves you alone most of the time. He's fun, and outgoing although he does get a little akward at times.
If your not one of his favorites (which I definitely was not) you are royally screwed. If he doesn't like you he nitpicks at your grade and he sent me outside for an hour about every class so I couldn't learn anything. Having him sucks.
nice guy, just a little awkward. if you ask him for help he wont really help you in class, but if you set up a time after school he'll definitely help you out. just ignore the jokes. and he updates grades REALLY fast.
He is funny at a laugh at him kind of way...but he really cares about his students. laugh at his jokes. even though they're not really funny...and usually in spanish.
He doesn't know spanish very well and he doesn't help you at all. My spanish got worse in his class.
great teacher you will get an easy A if you actually want to learn spanish. very helpful
hes a little bit difficult, and wont help u at all during class. always at the end. plays favorites too. other people in my class made it fun though. gotta love el presidente y el dictador. plus on the last day we watched the incredibles in ENGLISH. how cool is that. we started watching rush hour 2 also.
The class is hard because he does not teach well. Just work hard and you can pull off a good grade!
not only is he an awful teacher, he's a really mean man who makes you feel really stupid. Get on his good side and do all of the homework, not too hard to get an A though.
