Laura Zinke is one of the best teachers I have ever had. Honestly as long as you pay attention and don't act up in class you will have a great experience. I noticed that it was always the kids who would misbehave and act out who didn't like Zinke. She is there to teach and will not tolerate people who are disrespectful. She was absolutely amazing and I would highly recommend her as a professor. I learned a lot.
Laura Zinke enjoys bringing those she associates with down to her level. Arrogant with nothing to show for it. Disrespectful with no ability or knowledge on how to treat people fairly or have productive conversations. Inconsistent erratic behavior in the classroom and in meetings with parents and students. Parents are supposed to protect their kids from people like Laura Zinke, I was exposed as a student. I learned little about Spanish, more on human behavior.
Really mean, insensitive person.
Mrs Zinke is, yes, a very difficult teacher, but not so difficult that it's impossible. She is brilliant and knows both her subject and how to teach it.
Senora Zinke is one of the most caring, responsible, helpful, and strict teachers that I've ever met. I learned more about Spanish in her class then I ever thought I would
Yay Senora Zinke! Where would PPA be w/o her? She's hard, most certainly, but you leave her class knowing Spanish really well. She's a fun teacher and really cares about students.
Has high but reachable standards. Her class is amazing, I learned so much from her and it didn't even feel like I was being pushed.
Most I've ever learned in a Spanish classroom... but she has the capability of making you feel utterly belittled.
favours the cheerleaders and popular kids. good teacher though. tough class if you don't try.
She is such a wonderful Spanish teacher!! I have learned so much from her both this year and last year.
She a really cool person, but people always say that she's mean and I just tell them she's not your cheer coach
Her class is very difficult. I didn't like her teaching method, but she is a nice woman (just not in class). She needs to stop with the fake lisp though.
Hard teacher, but really good... the most I've learned in any spanish class... combined :)
Excellent Spanish teacher. Although you don't want to be near her when she's in a bad mood, she's so good at prepping for the AP-- i passed because of her!
Basically hinted I should give up on Spanish...I'm a bilingual teacher now and everyone mistakes me for a native speaker.
Its a fast moving train in that class. no doubt she knows what she is doin though. Great teacher, but you dont wanna see her w/ out the face of a happy camper
cares about us learning, has high standards...can You reach them?
Her spanish class is the hardest class ever, but you learn so much more than in normal classes. She's pretty helpful, but don't approach her when she's angry...
