People complain about how hard her class/grading system is, but she really does know her stuff and will absolutely prepare you for the AP test (almost all of her students get 4s or 5s). If you're committed to the class and have her proofread your essays after school or during 6th period, you should have no problem doing well. Sra. is funny, knowledgable and always happy to help. She really made my AP experience memorable

She is so bad. She has favorites and if your not her favorite then your probably gonna get a c in the class. Orals are impossible and the tests aren't even on the material she teachers

Please do yourself a favor and drop or switch out of the class if you get Mrs. Price. Your GPA will get wrecked if you stay in her class. She gives a C on oral tests for only two mistakes, and if you are not one of her favorites, good luck on trying to ever get an A on an oral. Participation in her class is 20% of your grade which is ridiculous in itself, but to make things even worse, she grades it unfairly. She would call on her favorites three times before even she called on me once!

She favorites hard. If she doesn't like you, she won't pick on you, bombing your participation grade (WHICH IS 20% OF YOUR GRADE!) Tests are on material you don't learn in class sometimes, so if you don't self study you're done.

Although she's a difficult teacher, she honestly does care about her students and her class. She ensures that all her students will learn Spanish, and I can definitely say I've learned way more than what I expected in my past 3 years with her. She is genuinely a nice person, and loves what she is doing. All you need to do to succeed in her class is study, do your work, and show her that you care (maybe a little more than other teachers).

Senora Price is honestly one of the nicest people you'll ever meet. She does a lot for her students and cares for them so much. She helps everyone improve so much. She may be intimidating at first but she really is an awesome person and great teacher. She knows the language inside and out and will answer any questions the students have. Her class isn't the easiest of classes and the work load for AP is very much realistic for a college level class. And do not procrastinate if you take this class

I can understand both sides of peoples' arguments that she's either really bad. I personally think she is very good. I had her for Spanish 2 and the 1st semester was pretty bad. I started out with a C and ended the semester with a solid 85, which is not bad, but still. By the 2nd semester, I knew her standards and could keep up with what she wanted. Granted I studied a lot more, it just took a little getting used to her. I love her now! Get on her good side, and her class is fun! I got an A!!!!!

i've had senora price for three years. spanish 2, 3 and A.P. 4. She is a GREAT teacher. She's hard, for sure, but you WILL learn spanish. if you just want the grade, don't take her class. it's tough to get an A in her class but if you do, its worth WAYYYYY more than an A in spitler, turnipseed, or any of the other foreign language classes.

BEST TEACHER I have ever had, hands down. Bcause of Sra. Price, I skipped MANY classes in college and graduated with a major in SPanish. I was FAR better than most of my peers. I went to an elite private university, and kids came from the top East Coast prep schools (even Ivy-League feeder schools). SO....If you can't handle her class, get over it, try to manage, and let the people who actuallY WANT TO work HARD and learn the language do so! Do not complain. She has high expectations of you.

Sra. Price is a great spanish teacher. I had her for two years and definitely learned a lot! She thoroughly prepares you for the AP exam (I got a 5) If you're expecting an "easy A" or even an "easy B" don't. You have to put effort in this class because you won't be able to BS your way through her class.

I am two years into a very well respected University. Sra. Price is still in the top 5 teachers I have ever had. With the Spanish that I learned from her, I went on to work as a Medical Interpreter at a Hopsital, translating between the doctors and the patients. Listen guys, if you're going to sit in a language class for three required years of your life, LEARN A LANGUAGE.

I really like her as a person...but her class is the worst part of my day. I am always confused and even though I study a lot I am still only making a B. She plays favorites a lot and I find it very frustrating. However, she's a pretty good teacher (when/if she likes you) and I hope I get her for Spanish 3 and 4.

OK so she's a little bit strict, and so she's hard to. But everone has to agree that out of all of the Spanish teachers, the class where you will learn the most is hers. She is actually from Spain, and even though she seems mean and tough and uncaring she is really trying to help. People who go with her all the way and just try their hardest really come to like her. I've heard alot of bad stuff about her but the people who write that need to open their eyes and take a walk in her shoes!

She's a great teacher. The only Spanish teacher at LC that can speak Spanish well and with a good accent (well, being from spain, yeah.) She really wants you to LEARN SPANISH not just the vocab from each chapter. Hearing her speak is learning the language by osmosis. Also, if the class struggles (WHICH YOU WILL. HER CLASSES ARE VERY DIFFICULT) She'll do everything in her power to make it easier.
