Profe Paz was a really good teacher in Spanish II and knew a lot about the subject. He teaches mostly in Spanish but you'll get by and the tests and quizzes are pretty easy if you just do some baseline studying. BUT, the class is very boring, in fact one of the most boring classes I've taken, and I feel he should do some activities to get us more engaged. But if you have him as a teacher you'll be A-okay! Maybe just find something that will keep you from getting bored in-class while paying attn.
He was a "meh" teacher. I had him for Spanish II and he was a very okay teacher. He is organized, delivers fair exams, grades tests/quizzes hard, but he grades projects/homework very leniently. Basically, I feel like Profe Paz is an ok teacher. He isn't mindblowing on either spectrum, but he does get the job done.
He teaches mostly in Spanish so a lot of people understand almost nothing. One of the more boring classes I've took
Me gusta! He's a great teacher and I learned a lot of Spanish in his Spanish 2 class. There are people who don't like his class but I feel that they aren't willing to put in the effort to learn Spanish. He teaches mostly in Spanish, but is very helpful if you need it. He's a friend and cool. He also runs CCA Spanish Club, Weds. at lunch in his room!!
Paz is really strict and has quite a boring class and the only way to really learn in this class is to REALLY, REALLY PAY ATTENTION (which is hard considering that he talks all in Spanish while explaining difficult concepts), or spend time reviewing the online book outside of class. He has obvious favorites and obvious people he hates, and assigns random projects and dialogues and gives us only a few days to do them.
I had Mr. Paz in Spanish 2 and all I can say for you people coming in from Spanish 1: DON'T FREAK OUT! Be ready to come in with homework completed and everything because Mr. Paz taught really well and his exams and quizzes are not hard as long as you study for them! I always used to cram the night before about an hour the night before because I PAYED ATTENTION IN CLASS! It's hilarious though when he tries to crack a joke and no one laughs because I was the only one laughing o_O
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.
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.
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.
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
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.
Super nice. Honestly he's not horrible at all. You just have to pay attention and listen for key words in his sentences. His class isn't too bad you just need to deal with it. Not hard homework at all. The way he grades the tests are annoying if anything. I'm glad I got Paz and I hope to have him up to AP.
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.
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
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
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.
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
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
