Her AP class was a lot of work. The projects require you to do so much outside the class such as filming and rehearsing Spanish dialogue. I didn't like the class but she liked me and got a 4 on the AP

She is very unfair, she is harsh, if she doesnt like you or believe something negative about you she will fail you and give you low grades on papers, even if you do well on test . smh

4 on AP, 91 in Spanish AP class. She can be moody (and whines), and assignments can border on ridiculous (be warned: you'll often be asking the native Spanish-speakers what you're supposed to do), but you'll do well if you participate and apply yourself to the subject. She can move too fast at times and students are often nervous, but don't worry about it - she isn't a tyrant and only expects effort, not perfect Spanish. Only be afraid if she hates you (if you're often late or miss HW). -V

first off she's super pretty. but way moody all the time. she speaks almost only spanish and english is not good at all. picks on the same people every day and no one else gets a chance. she's really sweet once you get to know her, (even though she favors latino boys), she's really entertaining in a way she doesn't know because the things she says are just so stupid that it's funny. love her though

Ms. Gando is very nice and cares about her students. Outside of the classroom she is one of the few teachers i've encountered that you can talk to about anything. AP Spanish is a hard class the teach, and Ms. Gando taught it well. She is a fair grader and will make people work hard for their grades. Gando's awesomeee

She's a great teacher who is very fair with her grades. Yes, she does have mood swings sometimes, but what teacher doesn't? Just do all the homework, participate, study notes, and you'll ace the class.

Really hard to understand what she says in class since it is very fast spanish. She just seems to barrel through vocabulary, not allowing students to copy down what the definitions are. The hw assignments take a long time to complete. Overall, I wouldn't apply for AP Spanish unless you really find interest in the subject. Otherwise, the class is really hard.

i took an AP spanish course, and i gotta say i dreaded the class every single day. ms gando was mad frequently because we didn't alwyas understand what she was saying, or what we were doing. however, i did learn from her, and she would be less scary if we did not have to prepare so rigorously for the AP. she could improve on some teaching methods, and the class may be hell at times, but if you participate and work hard, she will recognize that and you will be rewarded.

I think Ms. Gando is a good teacher. She always has her lessons planned, is pretty nice (unless you're a trouble maker), creates straightforward exams. There are no surprises in her class. The groupwork can be really fun, and she doesn't have sporadic absences like other teachers. She's a very reasonable person, and people should see that.
