TIERNO IS THE BEST TEACHER EVER! If you have him for AP, he doesn't give a lot of tests but he does give plenty of vocab quizzes. He's hilarious and incredibly nice because he often rewards us with donut and other food parties. He does play favorites, but I don't know if it's a good thing because if you're a favorite, you will be constantly called on in class to answer questions. He's great!

Honestly, tierno is a great teacher! Though i feel that he plays favorites with his students. So if you bombed one test then he would start treating you differently.

Such a nice teacher, but watch out, he's moody. Make sure he likes you...His grading system basically curves it, so that 1/2 the class gets an A, and an F is a 0...

tierno is a wierd guy -- in a totally good way. First of all he's pretty much a genius.. he's funny and his tests aren't hard if you listen in class. depending on where you sit you might get called on everyday or never at all -- pray your not in his direct line of vision. all in all consider yourself lucky since you didnt get mr. brown

Pretty chilled teacher. I could joke around with him and he would feel okay about it. Get on his good side and he would seriously boost your grade one letter higher. I went from B to A- without doing anything.

Mr. Tierno is a really funny teacher, but like everyone says he goes off topic a lot. However, when he does give a lesson, especially in grammar, he knows his stuff well. It was extremely easy to learn anything because of the simplistic way he teaches, and I ace tests fairly easily without studying much.

he's a really funny teacher and can easily get off topic, like one day all we talked about was earthquakes. Besides that you learn some spanish.

Funny teacher, but he occasionally yells at the class and he is really disorganized. Not the greatest at teaching, but when he tries, he makes it easy to understand. Fairly easy.

the work he does in class really does help you, but he never shows you the test grades and always randomly hands out tests and quizzes.

This is not a helpful class and I do not like him. The fool who makes others do his Latin homework and gives them A's is so ignorant about our progress that I shall never miss him.
