Jun 24, 2014 I had Senor Paz for Spanish II in Spring 2014. He really knows his stuff, but speaks entirely in Spanish and quite difficult for people who aren't that good at Spanish. It is a hard class, but if you want to be fluent, take it. Flag Rating

Best teacher at CCA!
At first, I thought it was hard because of Esquenazi, but Mr. Paz helped me get through the troubles of Spanish.
Mr. Paz is usually available for help.
He knows how to teach Spanish without the stupid games and stuff that most Spanish teachers fill their time up with.
When he starts to speak Spanish, it might be hard to understand at first, but it really gets easy to understand.
Mr. Paz has actually made Spanish easy to learn. Flag Rating
Jun 01, 2013 i learned nothing. he doesn't know how to teach. super strict. you couldn't even go throw something away without asking. wasn't accommodating for iep things. not clear at all. if you get one problem wrong on a quiz its basically and "f" because the way he weighs things. Flag Rating
May 27, 2013 Mr. Paz's class seemed boring at first but I have come to appreciate Paz's teaching methods. He is knowledgeable, a native speaker, and usually pretty helpful. He is a tough grader, and could be a little clearer and repeat some of the things he says in english just to make sure we know what he is talking about. Spanish 2 was difficult for me, but I think Paz is one of the few spanish teachers who is able to teach without all the frills and stupid childish games and get down to the learning part. Flag Rating
May 09, 2013 I love Profe,he's adorable, but it's really hard to learn Spanish 2 from him. He thinks that students' understanding of Spanish is much more than it actually is. So when he teaches grammar (every unit), he teaches it in Spanish. And although they are easy concepts, because he uses Spanish the whole time, the concept goes WAY over our heads. I would go in during lunch and ask him to explain it to you again, because if you don't understand it, you're screwed for the quiz Flag Rating
Oct 07, 2012 I didn't really like him. I had him for Spanish 5, and he had one or two obvious favorites and treated everyone else like they weren't even there. It took him the whole semester to learn my name in a 20 person class. Flag Rating
May 08, 2012 Practically everyone who has rated Mr Paz on this website are just whining. Mr Paz's class is so easy, definitely easier if you're good at spanish and yes you probably struggle if you're not so great but that's not his fault, you would have that problem in any spanish class. He's the nicest guy ever and he actually cares about his students. Flag Rating
Jan 22, 2012 I basically taught myself the entire book because he wouldn't teach it to us; you don't have to do the homework just fill it in with random words, but the tests are really hard and he grades them really hard. If your the type of student who can teach them self then you'll be fine, but if not drop the class. Flag Rating
Nov 16, 2011 I got an 89.49 in the class and he LIED to me and told me he really wanted to give me an A but couldn't, so I talked to the Vice Principal and he told me that teachers can do whatever they want with g Flag Rating
Feb 04, 2011 Worst teacher ever - get out!! Flag Rating
Jan 27, 2011 Nice dude bad teacher but I got an A! Flag Rating
May 06, 2010 Awful teacher. Doesn't teach ANYTHING and wastes class time doing irrelevant art projects. I feel like I have LOST more Spanish than have gained with his class. Flag Rating
Sep 03, 2009 My daughter was nervous about Spanish and had some difficulties although was always an A/B student. He bullied her, wouldn't help and when I asked specific questions, he replied with "check my website Flag Rating
Mar 28, 2009 I had Sr. Paz last year and i used to talk abt how much i hated his class and how bad of a teach he was...but now that i think abt it he really wasnt that bad..easy A and u will learn the least amount Flag Rating
Mar 19, 2009 He has no idea what he's teaching. He has trouble answering students' questions and is extremely disorganized. Nice guy, bad teacher. Flag Rating
Mar 19, 2009 not too great... there are better spanish teachers Flag Rating
Jun 08, 2008 His class is not productive. You won't learn anything from him which will hurt you in higher levels of spanish. He doesn't understand a lot of the grammar concepts himself. Flag Rating
Jan 29, 2008 I had Sr. Paz for Spanish and he wasn't very helpful, I found. He never really checks to make sure you understand the material so unless you are a good independent learner, I recommend you switch out Flag Rating
Jan 22, 2008 I had Sr. Paz and he is NOT a good teacher. All he does is read out of the book, he is wrong half the time and he makes lame jokes about himself like "Sr. Paz es alto y guapo" Switch out of that class Flag Rating
