I can't tell if her attitude/ personality is worse or if her teaching is. If you get an answer wrong she makes sure everyone in class knows it. You can tell she hates everyone. All we do is textbook work and then we get called on. She barley teaches and when she does, it is 10 minutes before the test.

She wouldn't let me retake any quizzes? I had her first period last year literally just to turn on the board it would take her more than half the period, and right before class is about to end she would give us 5-8 wksheets "This is due by the end of class or else you get a zero" She also threw my Starbucks away

Not only is she an awful teacher, she is an awful person. She sent a student to the office, because he was blowing his nose "too loud." She also spilled someone's Gatorade all over them, then blamed it on the student. In addition, she called someone overweight, to their face. When an overweight girl who was on the track team needed to leave for a track meet she said "you are on track? you don't seem like the type to be on track..." I've learned more about her motorcycle than I have about Spanish

Everyday in here class is the same exact thing. Come in class, get out your textbooks and notebooks, and wait for her to turn on the Promethean board. Why? Because all she does every single day is assign us textbook work. She makes you feel like a complete idiot when you don't know the answer on a question. She is the worst teacher I have ever had. She'll tell us we have a test right before the date of the test. She puts material on tests that we have never been taught. Terrible teacher.

She is down right garbage. She demands we work in our textbooks the whole class. When asking a question that she doesn't know she challenges you for criticizing her or bashing her. I've had pretty good grades in my Spanish classes until this year. The only way your grade can improve is if you suck up to her and become the biggest teachers pet you could imagine. If you ever encounter yourself in her class, say goodbye to your grade. Downright pitiful and disgusting how bad she is.

Mrs. Kushner is just clueless. Seriously. We're at the class before her, and as soon as she's in, we're told to open our textboooks (we're graded on having a book cover). She assigns pages, and that's class for today. Nothing different unless there's a test. On the tests, we get things that weren't even taught to us. I just don't even, she's horrible.

Mrs.Kushner is by far the worst teacher I've ever had. She doesn't teach or answer our questions, she just gives us busy work from the textbook and proceeds to yell at us and degrade us for the rest of class. Her tests are impossible because she makes it way more advanced than what we've learned. It's impossible to get an A. I'm a straight A student who's best subject is usually Spanish and I'm failing her class. She can be better by QUITTING. She's not fit for teaching.

Kushner is by far the worst teacher I have ever had. She is not understanding at all and is, as my parents call her, a sourpuss. She acts like she hates her job and hates everything and everyone. If you have her, make sure you have a book cover because she grades you on having a book cover....another reason why she is awful. I would recommend switching out of the class if you have her.

She has to be one of my least favorite teachers ever. She does not know how to use the promethean board and never teaches. She never introduced herself to students OR parents. She sits at her desk the whole time, gives you textbook work to do the whole time, and then embarrasses you when you do it wrong. She is rude to her students. It is like the textbook is a better student because I have learned more from it than Mrs. Kushner.

My parents would make a lawsuit against MCPS if they found out what Mrs.Kusher does. She screams at the students, falsely accuses students and frustrates multiple students. She's best described as crazy. However she's not the worst at teaching.

You can pretty much buy your grade in chewing gum. Other than that, she gives mostly worksheets and book work to occupy your time. Most the time she doesn't even teach. But and easy A if you get your self a tudor.

Doesn't do anything, doesn't help in class or after school, and she picks a few people to hate and yells at them everyday. Fortunatly there is a student teacher that does everything. now she just sits there and does nothing. the student teacher will leave after this year.
