I think you people are refering to the wrong Shafer. This is the page for Schafer, the former Spanish teacher that always got in trouble for watching movies, not the biology teacher lol
she doesn't teach very well. she just gives a bunch of labs and doesn't explain them, and then gives us tests that are hard because we never learned the topics.
Honestly speaking she makes the clasroom feel alive. She doesnt give boring long lectures or busy work. She has been down the road her students are going through and she uses her experience to help.
OMG. She is a really nice person with a kind heart, even though students don't always agree with her teaching methods, she is there for the students and loves them so much! I love her
i went on to become a Spanish teacher, but not because of anything i learned in schafer's class. after teaching the subject myself, i realize what a lazy way of teaching she employed. that said, i hope she is well in her personal life.
i feel like i would do way better if i practiced speaking and listening. I don't like how you have to give pesatas 2 ppl when u miss something, and i don't like how she makes u stand up and repeat stuff when u mispronounce it. i like her outside class.
do you work. only speak when spoken to. she's extremely rude and has no respect for anyone. you'll only learn in her class if you apply yourself. no more made for tv movies. don't go to her for help. she'll embarrass you. it's easy to cheat in her class.
all you do is workbook stuff or watch a movie. I am not learning anything in her class.
Ms. Schaefer likes to put people on the spot during class, not to teach, but to embaress them and belittle them. I don't think this is an appropriate tactic to use at a school with such high standards.
she threatens to throw kids out the window. she's cool outside of class and she's very funny. she's extremely helpful, but she'll embarrass you in front of the whole class if you give her the opportunity. she won't show you your grade, either.
she focuses too much on writing, i'd like more spanish listening and speaking experiences
She makes fun of kids all the time. Its embarassing and I feel sorry for anyone who has to take her class.
