Honestly, Sra. Rivera is by far the worse teacher I have ever had. She doesn't have a grade book and sucks at explaining things. She's really unclear with everything and when you ask her for clarification she makes you even more confused. I really regret taking her class a wish someone had warned me before I decided to take two years of Spanish. The only way to get an A is if you're her favorite. And to be her favorite you have to be Mexican. She's a really bad teacher.

Okay. Rivera. She is a good teacher at first. I had her for spanish 1-2 , and I liked the class. But in my 8th grade year, oh boy was i regretting taking spanish with her. So....her homework assigning is way over the limit. It's happened to me when I left the class to get to my next class and the next day, I found out that we had homework. I left early to get to my other class. What else? Instead of teaching us, she is always making us learn these weird nursery rhymes. Take her, itll help later.

Rivera doesn't have a grade book. Disorganized and messy. She has snack tutoring, but it doesn't help at all, because the classroom is always so noisy. She doesn't teach well, and often runs out of time to finish a lesson. She doesn't count homework assignments as a grade, only tests and quizzes. We only spent about a month or two on ALL indicative verb conjugations, and she leaves many of her students behind. She relies on her favorite students to grade her tests. tl;dr horrible teacher ಠ益ಠ

lol high school is just as hard as her class so middle schoolers, good luck...but atleast teachers at CV actually use a grading system and have a plan for what theyre going to teach. Just stick to the class and you'll be happy you did in high school when you're ahead of everyone else

Where do I begin? I know, let's start with DuoLingo. -_- She's asks that we do 30 minutes of DuoLingo each day. If she followed the rules and listened to our homework limit, then theoretically, that would be the only homework she'd be allowed to assign. I guess not. Her grading system doesn't make sense. If you want an A, then you have to be her favorite. It's as if her academic grade and citizenship grade overlap. Everything in her class seems last minute, and there is no structure.

okay so i am no longer in rivera's class and even though her class was a nightmare (she gives wayyyyyy too much work and is completely unclear and just stressful) i can say that i did learn a lot in the class. and if im honest, high school classes especially spanish, are just as hard, so she really is just preparing everyone for high school. it sucked and i hated her class, but thats life. Participate alot and be on her good side, cuz otherwise youre basically screwed.

Really kind teacher. Always helps and covers everything very well. Also, you can come to Snack Tutoring. She gives HER Snack Period for YOU to learn! You can't get very better than that because learning a language is incredibly hard but Sra.Rivera makes it very easy!

She was super nice and helped you a lot if you needed. The tests were hard however but you just have to figure her out. I liked her as a person and she taught spanish well, but she always made us do insane amounts of duolingo. This was the main bad point. I would recommend her if you really want to learn spanish, but if you just want your college requirements (me) then you should wait until high school.

Great teacher. If you don't have any appreciation for Spanish, you get a B, but if you want to learn, you will get an A. And she does keep a gradebook BTW.

She cant teach at at all. Her class is hard af. I legit have mental breakdowns because of her. She doesnt have a grade book and grades if your her favorite. In which if your not, you automatically get a "b" or "c". Good luck because she is useless to teach you spanish and for Spanish in high school.

She was one of my best teachers because she really cared for her students. I had her for both years at middle school, and I had an amazing time learning spanish. She really tries to help her students and push you in right direction. Also, if you think she gives a lot of homework, you won't survive high school. I think she really helps in improve your writing skills and teaches in her own unique methods that is refreshing considering that all the the teachers in CV use the textbook.

I dont mean to be rude or offensive but...okay shes a horrible teacher. She makes us read kindergarten books in Spanish and expects us to teach ourselves. Really bipolar. She holds grudges and totally has favorites. really annoying to listen to and gives so much homework...she thinks we dont have lives. expects wayy too much from her kids, and while i dont mind a little extra workload..I AM NOT LEARNING ANYTHING. plz get a new teacher. Oh and Dudamel...run. Ratings speak for themselves. Just No.

Had her for Spanish 1-2. She gives a ton of homework and has a test every week. Her class was really hard. She's not extremely mean, but not the nicest. Also, she was always eating in class! She expects a lot and teaches confusing. I guess she was ok
