Mr. Carroll is one of the best teachers I have EVER had. He is simple, understanding, and most importantly, he makes learning a hard subject fun. He is funny, and doesn't choose favorites in classes. He will kick students out if they are disrupting the learning environment, because he cares about his students. His tests are easy, if you study. Even if you dont study and DO YOUR HOMEWORK, you are able to get a C. I recommend Carroll over any teacher I've had.

Mr. Carroll is a fun teacher, I have him for Spanish 1 and I have an A. He teaches straight out of the textbook, so you can study really easily. You might need another source, such as Duolingo, to help but the class is pretty easy as long as you pay attention. Overall 7/10.

Mr. Carroll is easily one of the best teachers I have ever had! He cares about his students learning the material while making the class fun. He loves to joke around with the students and talk about his "glory days" without getting too off task. MAKE SURE YOU GET THIS TEACHER!

Pretty nice but he hates phones and eating in class. Teaches directly from the book but its super easy to get an A just do your homework and memorize vocab. He can be really funny sometimes but he seems to be a little homophobic....

Mr.Carroll is one of the worst teachers I've ever had. He claims that our vocabulary is at a high registry and lets us write down the vocab words from the book but when it comes to the test he won't help you at all with definitions. Even if it's a word that wasn't vocab. Also he isn't very smart and other teachers have told me he should only be teaching spanish 1.

I have him for Spanish 3 right now, and after having Ms. De Lasse for Spanish 2, HE ISN'T GOOD. I don't feel like I'm learning anything in his class, and it's so boring. He's nice and stuff, but strict when it comes to grading tests, especially when it comes to accents. Everything is from the book, no outside worksheets or practice. Tried to switch out soon after school started but couldn't, I really hate his class, can't wait till the year is over.

Senior Carroll is a fairly decent guy with ackward social skills. His "teaching" if you want to call it that, mainly consists of reading directly out of the book. He puts shame into the word teaching.
