You don't have to worry about her anymore because she is retired. She left us without telling us and now we have a long term sub who is actually making us do work. She basically screwed us over.

literally hated every second of her class. she clearly didn't think that I was worth her time, and several times I asked her for help and she didn't at all. terrible experience, turned me off of spanish for life.

She's insane. She never explains what we're doing and spends half the class repeating things. If you ask her a question you will get a 5-10 minute response that DOESN'T answer it. Then, she'll go over material right before a quiz just to ensure her whole class doesn't fail. She's a fake teacher.

Mrs. Ahlbin is a good person but she is a bad spanish teacher. She does not clarify AT ALL what we are doing in class. She spends maybe a minute each class in really fast spanish talking about the lesson plan then assigns translations. When it comes to quizzes, you have to study it all on your own, especially the grammar tenses because she doesn't do anything but translations and "colorful projects" that supposedly make it easier to learn. She never says what's on a test.... so you're screwed

She kind of teaches. I had Sr. Brown last year so I am clueless now... She might make you go to "helpful study sessions" after school.. At that just look like you are doing somthing and then you can b

She is a great teacher! She helps when you have questions and is very clear when explaining things. She makes workbook homework an optional thing so you can do it on your own time which is nice!

Ahlbin is a very cool lady. I love her class because even though it's a challenge, she will bend over backwards to help you pass as long as you make the effort too.

She is impossible to understand, and all you do is busy work after busy work after busy work. She has a good personality, but her tests are impossibly hard.
