She goes pretty fast with activities, and if you feel very rushed and scared of her calling you in the activities, it's because you probably copied the VHL homework. DO THE HOMEWORK, and her class will be very easy. tests aren't as important as showing effort, you should participate alot, she can get moody if you talk alot, but nonetheless she is a good teacher I would recommend highly, as other teachers are complete garbage like the polyglot teacher on the 7th floor
She is the best teacher I had! SHe was super funny and I always looked forward to her class. Her tests are easy as long as you study and she grades you a lot by your participation and how much she like you. she can be in a bad mood a couple of days, but shes really easy as long as she likes you. If she makes fun of you, she likes you.
Amazing teacher - if you participate a lot you'll be fine, but don't do anything that would make her angry (blatantly use Google Translate on project, never participate, use cell phone, etc) or else she can get REALLY mad.
Out of all the Spanish teachers you could have in Stuy, Ms. Silverio is your best bet. If she picks on you, it's NEVER because she dislikes you. She can also teach really well.
i love her. she is hilarious and lets kids eat in class
She's a really good Spanish teacher, she might not give too many notes, but she teaches the material quite well. I just need to write down whatever she's saying. Her exams are super easy as long as you just study for them. She's a really funny teacher but she likes to make fun of the students sometimes. Regardless, that's not a bad thing, she's just fun. She's not like some other teachers that don't know what they talk about, because she actually does.
Look forward to her class everyday! She can tell apart the kids that are passionate about Spanish, and those that are just taking the class to fulfill the reqs. I did ok on exams, but I talked to her daily in Spanish in and out of class, and got a 94
Very moody. Angry for no reason. Then very playful like nothing happens.
BIASED AS HELL Only way to do "well" is participate a lot. Exam/quiz grades don't mean a thing 90 test average, but lack of participation results in a 75 (second semester). Improved participation
She is HILARIOUS!! :) It's impossible to go through a class without her making you laugh! Her tests are also really easy if you pay attention and she has these little tricks to help you remember grammar rules.
She seems really bad at first, but after a few days, she's a great teacher! It sucks when she picks on you, so just try avoiding that. Go along with her jokes. It's actually a really fun class.
She is the best spanish teacher ever! So chill, but you still learn so much from her. loves to joke around and goes very fast, but if you can keep up with her learning is a breeze. GREAT personality a
Best Spanish teacher i ever had in stuy. Actually looked forward to going to class and this is coming from someone that cuts a lot of classes. Talk to her in english and be funny and she'll like you.
Pretty nice, tends to make fun of some kids in class, but all as a joke. Very funny, manages to teach pretty well. Tests aren't too bad, straight from the textbook.
She sits and does nothing in class. Ocassionaly picks on people.
i love her so much. you learn so much about her life and she always manages to teach you spanish grammar in between. shes the best teacher ive ever had
god, i love this woman. she's so friendly and chill with us. tell her gossip and she'll love you forever. she also makes the spanish really simple and easy to understand.
She's really funny and laid back. Her tests aren't too easy, but she teaches well so you'll be fine. Never be intimidated, and participate!
Was she like a standup comedian before becoming a teacher?
awesome spanish teacher. dont ever be intimidated. her tests will be hard, but her final grades are usually higher unless she really doesnt like you. ask to see past music videos because some are hilarious.
she's a nice person with mean, sarcastic jokes. don't take them to heart. her tests are hard and her teaching confuses me.
i love her! she is so nice and funny and her class is the first spanish class i have ever liked or looked forward to. im never bored. and i love the movies and songs. i guess it helps that she likes me, she can be unfair
I may not be great at spanish, but she is a great spanish teacher. prep'd me for the regents and AP. I guess thats all I wanted. Her grades and teasing may be arbitrary, but shes ultimately fair, and you get what you deserve.
Silverio is cool, but intimidating. In no way is she a BAD teacher, but she can be hard to get along with and her grades seem to me to be sort of arbitrary. She teases mercilessly, which I don't like, but she's pretty sweet
I love her class. i wake up in her class, helps me get through history -.- I finally got my spanish foundation down, all became clear for me. love her
shes the best. hilarious and really smart. shes nice on the inside, the mean thing is just what she does. its funny
Her lessons constantly detour into interesting stories, which is cool but not good for learning. Also has hard tests (as compared to say Ms. Ambia's easy listenin comp + mult choic
She's okay. She can be very fun at times, but then she gets these really strange mood swings and gets extremely mean.
Mad cool teacher , just dont open urself for ridicule and if you actually talk she is pretty cool , she teaches alright but lots of interesting stories
shes ok. i wish she wouldn't bring attention on me so much; i don't learn as well
Not bad. It's annoying how she keeps picking on everyone, but beyond that she's a good teacher. She doesn't explain things greatly, but if you need help, ask.
I have to say, she is the first Spanish teacher I've met in my life who actually knows what she's on about. Be careful of being forced to sing, though.
ms. silverio is ultra cool. be careful if she hates you from the beginning, but usually those turn out fine. she makes a lot of jokes.
haha everyone was scared on like the first day...lol you could literally hear a pin drop but she isnt bad and you learn a lot
so funny.. unless your one of the kids she picks on.. watched movies: aladdin, lady and the tramp, aristoGATOS.. very fun. spanish bingo= candy!
coolest spanish teacher ever. she lets you watch videos and stuff in spanish... I WANT HER FOR AP!!!
