She asked if anyone knew French. Then she makes errors because she accidentally types in French, or uses French grammar. She spent 3 months on the seating chart. It takes her an average of 20 minutes for attendance, just to say Buenas tardes clase! She didn't do anything to prepare us for midterms. She did a whole unit on "Dulces Suenos" that no other class did because it was apparently relevant to Halloween. She said presentations were good but the people up at the board were fooling around.
she dont know half of what she saying. a girl was using her laptop for the whole period (sits to the closest seat to bismuths desk) and didnt notice. she doesnt know what she doing at all she always late to class too. Transfer out of her class. You gonna fail midyears if u have her.
she's really the worst
She spends three months working out attendance and the class seating chart, and the rest of the year yelling at anyone who drops a pen. Dealt with her for two years and all I learned was that I hate french. Only take her class if you're looking to deal with a headache everyday.
She knows her french. But she gets frustrated over small mistakes.She said you can only use words that you learned from her so no translator(if she finds out).
Great class to catch up on other classes' homework. Very forgetful, VERY oblivious, awesome for practical jokes. A cranky grandma who gets off on scolding innocent kids.
GET ON HER GOOD SIDE I cannot stress this enough. It's an easy A and can be easier if you get on her good side by participating or saying hi to her outside of class. Homework isn't necessary (You can always tell her you're looking for it and then grab someone else's when she comes back around the room and play it off as your own. Freshman and sophmore year with her is good but if you have her for AP i think you're pretty much screwed.
She constantly yells at us for nothing and the class is ridiculously easy.
boring and strict teacher. her test and work was easy but she was a hag. sadly, i couldn't sleep in her class cause i sat in the front row.
i had her for first year french. now i have mr blessent who acutally knows french and so he assumes we all know basic first year french. um... yeah... everyone is way behind and we've told him multipl
Ms. Bismuth teaches level 1 French in a level 5 class. She's been "reviewing" the material for a month now. Her tests are extremely easy, and so are her homework. Studying isn't a problem in this clas
easy A or A . Just don't be one of the students she hates or you'll end up getting point deductions for the smallest things. LOL.
Doesn't do anthing, all the tests are on the same material. This is a great class to do other work in. Were all screwed for the regents. My notes from middle school are more detailed than her teaching
Spent a quarter of the year taking attendance and reviewing basic year one french. Spent another quarter on Canada/random pop songs. Another quarter on Haiti. And another quarter reviewing Canada, Hai
She yells at us for always being behind when it's really her fault that she doesn't teach us anything. She's an expert at finding a way to waste time. Doesn't let you use the bathroom even if you're a
she dosent know french from france kids that are fluent in french help me and then she says they are wrong lol
RETURN OF THE BELLY BUTTON!!!I that thing protrudes at least once a week.
she wore a midriff to school once. NO ONE WANTS TO SEE YOUR BELLY BUTTON, MS. BISMUTH!
Everything you learned here, you have learned in middle school. If you didnt take french in m.s., best luck to you. If you seriously don't try to do some selfstudying, you are screwed over. -cries-
She is an awful teacher. She makes no lesson plans. After her taking of the attendance which lasts 30 minutes we only have 10 minutes of class left. We didn't learn anything all last year.
Ms. Bismuth has an unorthodox style of teaching, but she is helpful and loves what she is doing. Although she picks on kids who don't do their work, she really cares for each student. I can't believe I actually got a 4 on the AP test (so don't let ppl scare you off by saying you'll all fail.) But I had to work on my own. Overall, if you like French and are willing to work, Bismuth will make class fun
Don't take French at this school or you won't learn anything. Pointless group projects. She doesn't teach so don't expect a syllabus to be handed to you.
she's a terrible teacher, her classes are boring and she yells at you for talking. we spend 40 minutes going over homework or the do now, and it takes her forever to do the attendance. she tries to make things interested by assigning pointless group projects, and is heartbroken when nobody cares about 'surrealism in french' or whatever. everybody in my french class wishes that she'd retire, or at least not wear revealing clothing.
shes a good teacher. a little off sometimes but u can really learn from her
Ms Bismuth is AWESOME she is so nice and she isa real person she gives no work and you can bs your way through everything my friend would not do hw bismuth would check it then when she came around again i would give my friend my hw and she would check it for my friend...awesome!
i think shes great. just get on her good side and you're set. participate and she'll like you
she is far out mentally. but if u talk to her outside of class once or twice and get on her good side, her grading suddenly changes :) no work, i dont know any spanish=80 :)
i think she is an Ok teacher! However, she is very strict and will cut 3 pts. even iff you have a minor spelling mistake! i guess i cannot make judgements about any teacher, but i would give her 4star
she is the worst teacher i have ever had. and ive had some pretty bad ones. but honestly, how far out there is she?!?!
OMG k so i have her for the HITRD YEAR IN A ROW. and theres no hope of changing it. IF YOU CAN HELP IT JUST DONT TAKE FRENCH BECAISE IF U DO YOU RISK HAVING HER AS A TEACHER AND THATS THE WORST
One of the worst teachers ever.She comes late everyday while munching on food.She has vendettas against some ppl.The 1st impression is the only impression.She makes u recite the weather everyday.
Absolutely one of the the worst teachers i've had at bronx science for more reasons that i have space for. If you can avoid taking this class, then DO IT! SAVE YOURSELF!
She is a horrible teacher and she does not teach anything
She's always late because of her bathroom breaks but she'll never let you go.
what are you all talking about? Ms Bismuth is absolutely the greatest teacher to ever walk on earth.
bias, terrible teacher, lessons r always the same, she just makes u copy lines from the board and shes always late
let me get one thing straight. when half the class fails with like 40's, then its not something wrong with the students. it's something wrong with the teacher.
she's okay at best. she gets mad at nothing and forgets she collected the hw and complains when we dont have something to read from.
Bismuth was an odd teacher. Confusion is inevitable with her. She would sometimes greet our spanish class with Bonjour, clase . I think that says it all.
she's an okay person, but she can't teach for her life. her class is so boring
she can't speak spanish. she's nice. but she's not very organized
Ms Bismuth knows her languages, But she cannot teach. She is highly disorganized. Cannot plan ahead of time,giving tests 2 days after she decides to do so.
everything that has been said about her I can't agree with more. ms. Bismuth is not meant to be a teacher. she is the most hypocrytical, impatient, spaced-out person I know. still, she is sometimes very funny (unintentionally).
yea okay umm no help at all shes soo slow not even funny she always tries to act like ppl listen to her she knows nothing about her students she cant even spell their names right!!!
She really tries, but often unsuccessfully. She's almost always late to class, and speaks French in front of her Spanish students. She tries to be authoritative, but ends up being silly.
no help at all. she was 10 minutes late half of the time.
she's not really helpin much, righ? thank goodness shes not teaching a regents class. she should stick to french instead of spanish.
she should learn how to speak spanish well before she teaches it
dont expect to learn anything. boring class, cant utter a word. one of the worst teachers of all time.
She is a nice person but she has not no idea what shes doin. She comes in to class late like every day and wastes the whole class time going over homework and the do now. she is always screaming at people for no reason and screams at u for defendin them.
The worst teacher i have ever had... and she is really slow... i mean REALLY REALLY slow!... she doesn't even know spanish that well... i can cut for 3 weeks andshe still wouldn't notice im gone...
She needs to give up on those that don't want to learn and should just ignore their remarks or tell them to shut up.
welpz. let's just say that it took her a good 10 minutes to take attendance. and she yells at us for talking because she can't concentration on who's absent and who's not.
She spends more than half of the spanish class talking to the french teacher in french!
Most definitely the worst teacher in the school. she probably know s how to teach french but for spanish you dont learn a thing
Quite possibly the worst teacher in the school. Not one good attribute about her at all
I believe it is necessary for this teacher to get more teaching lessons.
