I liked her well enough. She doesn't exactly teach, but Spanish is an easy language to begin with. Quizzes and tests are reasonable.

A mi me gusta la Senora Becker! I ended Spanish 2 with a 98.5% for my final grade. Senora Becker was so nice, although I DID get bored of playing games all the time. I practically went to the "bathroom" every class, which consisted of walking the halls for five-10 minutes. but I was still one of Senora's favorite students. she always gave me TONS of xtra credit points (106% second quarter!!!). Quizzed should me more often, PALS writing more often, games less often, but nontheless fun!!!

Possibly the worst spanish teacher ever. She is never clear about due dates, and can't teach to save her life. She also cannot speak the spanish language, which makes it really difficult when she randomly breaks in to Spanglish. Contrary to popular beief, she is actually a difficult teacher and she gives a lot of tests/quizes.

this class isn't a joke like some people say but it wasn't that challenging. almost everything is covered, but if you fall behind, watch out, you might hurt your grade, which is sure to be an A at all times.

I don't understand why people don't like Mrs. Becker. She makes class fun, is fairly easy, and covers all the culture and grammar you need to know for the test in class, placing less emphasis on vocab which she also places less emphasis on on the tests. I really liked her and reccomend her for Spanish 2/3.

Can't lecture. Doesn't know enough to answer questions. Teaches without saying where the material is in the book. Blames own mistakes and confusion on students.
