06/24/14 - 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. Show More Show Less
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. Show More Show Less
06/01/13 - 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.

05/27/13 - 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.

05/09/13 - 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 Show More Show Less
10/07/12 - 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. Show More Show Less
05/08/12 - 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. Show More Show Less
05/03/12 - 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. Show More Show Less
01/22/12 - 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. Show More Show Less
