Like another reviewer said, either you love him or you don't. He's a pretty fun teacher but he's pretty outspoken on his views. He's a staunch conservative and once called an Indian kid in my class a terrorist...

He is the best. Class is easy. His ways/acronyms/songs for remembering things for spanish are kind of abstract. Unfortunately he's gone. He went to Guatemala to do some stuff. So none of you can have him. He was a boss though.

He's a good man, but I'm not sure if he's a good teacher. He's too hyper to be able to teach in a closed room and he moves constantly, back and forth. I was also never able to take decent notes in his class because he always came up with phrases and nicknames. One time I was zoning out because I couldn't understand him and the one thing I randomly heard was Vin Diesel. I asked my desk buddy what Donde meant and apparently, he didn't understand either.

He is a great person overall and treats you like a friend, but definitely does not know how to teach. All our class does is talk and he never cared. Didn't push us hard enough. Doesn't know how to communicate as a teacher overall.

Donde is quirky, but a very nice guy. His class was sometimes confusing because he would give nicknames to parts of speech (if something has happenED it's an ED-word) and didn't always explain what they meant. Sometimes confusing. Enthusiastic.

Señor Ware is a great guy. He is always interested in my life both inside and outside of the classroom. He is a very kind, funny and caring man and always makes me feel good about myself. He doesn't give too much work and teaches us what we need to know to further our use of Spanish. Some refer to his controversial beliefs, but I have not had a problem so far, and I really respect his opinions and beliefs, regardless if I agree or not. All in all, if you have Señor Donde, you are lucky.

Funniest guy on the planet. He really knows Spanish and is there to teach you. He gets off track with joking around a lot and admiring the Spanish culture but when you ask questions, he'll explain it to you a million times until he knows you understand it. Spanish isn't for everyone, but if you're smart & can pick up on it, having Donde (ware=where..lol) is AWESOME. He makes class pretty fun and entertaining and has fun projects and ideas. He is so encouraging and made me want to pursue Spanish!

He really knows spanish, but is not good at teaching. He insists that everybody does stuff his way, such as binders, and hurts you hard in grades if you don't use his system.

He was an awesome person, and I loved when we got him off topic. But he assumed we all knew everything because of the class we were in. He was not a good teacher, but he was a great person.

One of my least favorite teachers this year. He is a complete and total liar, and always gives tests and quizzes on things that we hadn't gone over at all. He's just horrible.

His ways of memorizing spanish and learning to use them to speak fluently are awesome. Spanish is so functional to me now. All you have to do is mind his "preaching" which is easy.

Uses a lot of good methods, I still remember 95% of what I learned from him. However his political and religious speeches can get carried away.

Cares a lot. Knows his stuff well. has very interesting ways of remembering things. Should keep his opinions to himself unless he wants people hating him.
