The instruction in this class is so dated the only thing to liken it to is watching paint dry. The Spanish curriculum at LSI is completely out of sync with NYS. Parents and students deserve honest reviews. Stop deleting them!
I never had Mrs. Clause But she is the nicest person at LaSalle. She really cares about the kids and is very friendly
At first I thought she was a kind, caring teacher who was on her game but after spending two long years in her class what I found out is that her instruction is far from engaging.She also isn't kind. She makes judgements about students and is unwilling to bend or be helpful in any way. Her old fashioned approach to teaching is "one size fits all". It was very frustrating that she required us to carrying around a huge dictionary when I have access to any Spanish word on my laptop.
Overall fair. Time to start using technology in instruction. Spanish is a required class that very few want to take. Should try harder to make it fun, interesting and not so challenging. Sadly aligns with the negative group of colleagues at LSI.
Extremely hard class. Will scream at students occasionally. She knows her spanish, but has a hard time expressing it to students.
She literally is the best teacher I ever had. She has high expectations, and she does not give homework to often, but when she does you should do it.
Mrs. Clause is one of the nicest teachers in the institute. She is very helpful and makes Spanish fun.
Great teacher that explains everything yet is strict about it. She lets you have fun in class but she also doesnt let it get in the way of teaching. Makes class fun and you learn all that you need to
some people don't like her, but she was one of my favorite teachers and I enjoyed having her for level 2 and 3 Spanish. she's definitely where I got all my Spanish skills from. A
Generally fair, but often expects students to know her exact policies about tests/HW without really explaining them. She definetly plays favorites with smarter/well behaved kids.
