If you participate and pay attention and do your homework, he is really nice to you. If you slack of he points you out in front of the entire class. He was bad at teaching and his tests were impossible unless you speak Spanish. He gave me a hundred for a home work and then during the class I did not pay attention to one thing, he gave me a 0 for the homework.

I'm grateful that I had a native speaker to teach me Spanish. I think it really helped me with my accent. I agree with the others, that he's a really nice guy. Gotta admit, the way some of the kids act in our class, it's no wonder ANY teacher would get frustrated. Can't be easy. But just do your homework, guys!!! And ya gotta review, or else you're just gonna forget what you just studied. I think a lot of the negative comments here are just from kids who don't have strong study habits.

You just have to do what he says and you will get a good grade. If you come late or do not do homework, he gets angry. You have to do all your work and come on time. Thinking back, he was a fair teacher and I missed on an opportunity to learn. Our class was so bad for him that he kept saying he wanted to retire. It is funny now that I think back to it.

hernandez isn't as bad as he seems? he can be in a good mood for the most part but it doesn't take much to piss him off so try refraining from asking the bathroom and stuff. participate!! he'll love you lol, and just study from the textbook if you don't get anything. he tries his best to make others understand and teach the material. exams aren't that bad either

I first had Ms.Ullman, boy was class hard since my 8th grade spanish teacher sucked! But continued to try in spanish! When Sr.Hernandez was teaching, class was fair! He does play favorites but just do the homework and get on his good side, and i promise you, you will pass with an 80 . I had a 60 in the beginning of the year, but in the end i got a 90!

I did all my work, got 90s on my test and projects, and did not shout/yell, throw paper all over the room, or curse like the other kids in the class but he still gave me a grade of 65 just because of the first two weeks of school where I, according to him, "DID ABSOLUTELY NO THING!!!" The kids who did shout/yell, curse, and throw paper all over the class got 75-90s. I thought that this was unfair, but he doesn't. He fails as a teacher.

Overall i wasnt his favorite so that ment getting yelled at a lot, Althought at first i wasnt a good student on tests, I always did my homework and didnt understand why he would give you a 65 when you did all the HW, PROJ, and got 65% on his tests. Although in the second term i got better grades he still yelled at minor mistakes. His methods of making you do better (yelling at you constantly) doesnt work. Leads to kids skipping and low self esteem. He was easy with his hw and tests though.

He's a really good teacher if you're on his good side. If you know your Spanish, and he knows that, then you're set. He tends to yell at a lot of students and get mad because they don't do a lot of work, which is kind of understandable. But if you listen and pay attention and do his work, then you're good. He plays favorites, but if you are one of them you're good to go, if not, he's fair and grades to how you work and do on tests.

his class is really easy, and he grades pretty fairly, though its VERY obvious he has favorites. he's always saying how lucky we are to have hispanic kids in our class. he sometimes does overreact to little things like incorrectly conjugating a verb or coming into class 5 minutes late. he can kinda tear down your self esteem by saying things like "its no surprise you got this wrong". overall it was an easy course.

at first when when you see him, he looks like a good guy with very little anger issues, but in reality HE OVERREACTS TO EVERYTHING, from being 2-30 mins late, missing a single h.w., or putting a g instead of a y on the board, and he tries to be funny, but he is extremely terrible at it

Mr. Hernandez is one of the nicest teachers I've had in the shcool and a good grade in his class is possible: just memorize those story plots and raise your hand for the easy questions. It should be one of the easiest courses you'll have in the school.

I got by with 90s in his class. I'm a pretty quiet student. I simply have a thing with participation. I can't do it. You could call it a fatal personality flaw, but I am VERY opposed to speaking up in front of people, ESPECIALLY, when I'm not 100% sure I'm right. I remember one time I wrote something (rather stupid) on the board "nosotros es [instead of estamos].." Yes, I made a mistake. But the tone pratically called me stupid. He doesn't clarify, and he puts you down. Terrible teacher.

There's no doubt that he plays favorites with the students. You need to be an independent learn to receive a good grade. If you do well on tests, and participate every now and then, you would pass.
