Very annoying. I dreaded going to her class last year and she made me super uncomfortable because she's so demanding and intimidating. She IS a good french, but very fast paced.

I was not a fan of the fast-paced teaching style. It is not difficult to grasp, but she really crams hour-long lessons into 40 minutes so by the end of the period you begin to disengage as it gets very monotonous. I still must say that she is very knowledgeable and answers questions when you have them. She spends countless hours preparing lessons and "Les Pré-interros" so I can appreciate her effort. If you voluntarily 2-3 questions a period, she will like you and be considerably more lenient.

She is very obnoxious and she picks favorites. Her class is very difficult if she doesn't like you or if French isn't your favorite subject. She has a very loud voice that she likes to use to take command of the classroom, and she likes to yell at people that offend her. She is uncaring and tough. I dreaded going to French every day. We read Germinal second semester, and while Germinal is a thought-provoking book with many lessons and morals, she totally ruined the experience. Thumbs down.

I used to love french, but no more. S-K picks favorites and least favorites and is very obvious about them. As a favorite I can see liking her but from the other end this is not the case. I struggled in her class and when I got a tutor instead of being happy she put me down and picked on me more. This made me self conscious and I couldn't speak in class because I would start shaking and loose my french. I thought maybe this year it would be better but no. She has permanetely affected me, in a bad way.

She's a good teacher, but she definitely plays favorites. I personally felt victimized by her the entire year. I used to love French and now I dread going. She doesn't show enough respect for her students as people.

If you choose any day to do homework, make sure you have it done for "lab" days. There's no way you can get away with not doing homework. At least, it's embarrassing. One too many times has she gone "bonjour les filles!"tome

She's...let's say "expressive." The singing is ridiculous! But overall a good teacher, I think I've learned a lot from class this year.

strange......Very difficult, but a good teacher. Well, unless you don't give an effort. Then she can be very intimidating/seem to hate you, which discourages you from getting help or wanting to get better at french.

She is a pretty difficult teacher, but you do learn if you apply yourself. She seems to beharsh with taking points off. Class time is exhausting; participation is graded ruthlessly.

S-K is prejudiced, petty, and way too full of herself. She writes abysmal multiple choice questions, and I can tell you from experience that if the entire class fails a quiz, she will not go over anything, give it again, and will count both scores.
