Ms. Polansky's class is hard but you will learn more with her than anyone else. She makes sure people really know the units and wants her students to do well. It is hard to make mistakes in a language class but she is very helpful and considerate. She always plans her classes and is open to suggestions. She always listens to students and she cares more than any teacher I've ever had. Her stories about her trips are pretty cool too!

Rita is super sweet if you get to know her. She is a wonderful person, butI hated her as a teacher. She was a very difficult grader and wasn't the best teacher in the world. But I recommend going on one of the school trips with her bc you'll love her!

She definitely knows her spanish but i think what she and a lot of spanish teachers lack is motivating the students to have a passion for spanish. Also, shes pretty strange and her classes are very awkward and uncomfortable. When she speaks us in spanish, she expects us to all understand it 10/10, but then when she talks to us in english, she speaks slowly as if we dont understand english... There was also one super awkward time when she had us read a spanish blog post on how to get big butts ha

I can honestly say that she is the worst teacher that I have ever had. She is unfair in grading and makes everyone feel uncomfortable when Spanish class should be a fun environment. The topics we learned were not too difficult, but with her they were impossible. I have not met a person that enjoys having her as a teacher because she is terrible. If she is on your schedule, I highly recommend you switch out while you can. Manning will make your life so much easier.

Horrible teacher. So unfair with grading in relation to the other teachers. Manning is so much better, if you have Polansky on your schedule I would recommend switching out. Oh, she meows too.

I dont like her. Some people do. I liked my previous semester teacher much more. She offers basically nothing unless you make a big deal over it.

I find that she's a very hit or miss teacher. You love her or you hate her. In my opinion, she doesn't speak enough Spanish around the classroom. She will tell stories in Spanish but otherwise she won't really speak it.

Her class is really hard, so if you don't like learning and you're lazy, you won't be happy. But she really cares about her students and she genuinely wants them to learn. She obviously cares cuz she always asks for feedback.
