She made me not want to take French again. She was unorganized and rude if I didn't understand some things. However, McNabb was very very knowledgable, given she is from France. She was nice most of the time.

I loved my three years with Madame. She is passionate about teaching, knowledgeable and fair. She truly helped me become a better person. I will miss her but intend on minoring in French. Merci pour tout Madame!

she is super passionate about what she teaches.. French. of course she would be passionate about that it's her native language, however, she is an awful teacher!! she has no clue what to do when a student falls behind and becomes very impatient. Coming from an Asian descent I can recall a few times she's made a racist joke referring to Asians. She has her clear favorites and she makes it really clear who she gives up on.. NOT A GOOD TEACHER AT ALL

I love her because of her joyful personality however she is very biased. As long as you are participating, you should be ok. If not, she slowly starts showing the fact that she is unhappy with you. Her class isn't too hard- so long as you raise your hand a lot and cash in all those participation points. Her tests are difficult so f you want an A, study for thsoe.

She can be very nice as long as you're one of her favorites, but she turns participation into a competition and it's very stressful. I have been dealing with severe anxiety for the past year and she said me I needed to chose what to be stressed about when I told her this. She picks very obvious favorites and while she is good at teaching, this favoritism put a lot of stress on the lower students and makes them do worse. Basically don't take french if you have anxiety.

She is a very nice person who teaches well and cares about her students. Her biggest flaw is that she is a huge favorite chooser. She treats the people and the whole other class differently and believe me, its not fun being on her bad side. She also expects a lot of particpation without realizing that it can give students anxiety. Her class was extremely stressful for me.

I liked her in 1-2, but 5-6 I don't think so. We have spent way too much time on art and other useless stuff. She makes up the class as we go and she gets ideas from her students on what do from some students. We should be preparing for AP!

Madame Mcnabb is the teacher who helped me to fall in love with french. She is dedicated and knows what she is talking about. Her class is challenging but worth it 100 percent. If you have a good attitude going into it you will enjoy her class and succeed.
