Shes very depressed and miserable and it was rough having her for both spanish2 and spanish 3 honors, 2 years in a row. Strangly, 2 was harder than 3 honors. The good thing about her is her songs help

shes a bit depressed and needs to be a bit more..alive during class, although she is a very good Spanish teacher. Ms. Janda knows her stuff.

I had her sophomore year for Spanish II about five years ago. She was a little odd but her songs really helped me pass all her tests. She definitely knows what she's talking about.

I hated the way she spent four months reviewing subjunctive tense, then only one week for every other topic. I also don't know why she gave us sheets about forms of attraction, in english. On the up side, I loved her songs!

She's a really nice lady, and a pretty good teacher, she just lets her personal issues interfere with her teaching...if she was happier, she'd be great.
