Mrs. Patterson is always in a hurry. She talks about how busy she is and is often MIA during needed tutorial. My student needs additional help in Spanish however Mrs patterson is absolutely rigid in her expectations. She refuses to provide my student with needed support and changes to tests. If your student can learn from a "canned" lesson plan, 20 years old, they may be okay in this class. There will be no flexibility!

Mrs. Patterson is a good teacher if you already understand spanishnand are a very quick learner. But otherwise, she is more intent on staying on schedule and failing all of us rather then falling behind but actually teaching us. When she talks, half of what she says is in Spanish; words we haven't even learned yet. It makes is very confusing and hard to stay focused. On the section of her test where you label pictures students get marked differently even if they put the same answer.

She is hard. She needs to be able to connect with students, but as far as spanish teachers go, shes still one of the better ones.
