Truly cares about her students' success. She teaches with a great balance of culture, grammar, vocabulary, and practical uses for spanish. I learned more in her classes than in any other spanish class I have taken. Great instructor!

Ive taken this class twice and couldnt even get a B either time. Shes sweet but she'll be super and unreasonable and expect way too much out of you. Most nights i had over an hour of homework just in spanish. We sometimes had 3/4 tests per week.

Senora was one of my favorite teachers at chaparral. She was by no means easy but she was enthusiastic and really wants her students to grasp the material and become proficient in Spanish. Her class is a lot of work- lots of vocab, grammar and short stores but it is all worth it. She works incredibly hard for her students but is often undervalued by the school which is a shame. I had her for Spanish 4 and 5 and got a 5 on my AP test because of Senora. She's the best!

I had señora for Spanish four and five. She is nothing short of incredible. She is one of the hardest working, caring teachers at chaparral and deserves much more credit than she is often given. Her class was always interesting and fun. It was definitely no walk in the park but my Spanish improved immensely because of señora. The best part of the Spanish classes I took with her was that they no longer follow a text book so we got to practice Spanish more practically and go at our own pace!

Doesn't actually teach. Just assigns hours of homework each night in hopes that the students will just teach it to themselves.

Her Spanish 3 class is excellent; she really takes her students far. Her Spanish 5 class is insanely difficult but well crafted and helpful for the AP exam.
