Sheila Soss is a very nice and kind person who always is willing to enlighten her students and bring positivity to the room. However, when it comes to teaching Spanish she gets rather distracted and focusses less on the actual content and more on activities and videos that correlate with the unit. She moves at a rather fast pace and if you happen to be falling behind it can be difficult to catch up. Despite that, she's a wonderful person and cares for her students.

Sra Soss was my favorite teacher! She was so helpful and I learned so much from her. It was one of the most challenging classes I ever had, but she was so incredibly helpful and helped us understand the material. Gracias, Sra :)

Worst spanish teacher I've ever had. Literally learned nothing in her class and honestly felt that my spanish skills were worsened by being in her presence. Her class was the biggest waste of my time.

It seems as though that at Barrington, the better teachers are always teaching the harder classes. Sra. Soss is no exception to this standard. Although I am not very good at Spanish, she is extremely patient and really willing to allow her students to succeed. Gracias, Sra. Soss.

Mrs. Soss is the worst spanish teacher I ever had. All we do is play games all day in class and never learn anything. I am literally devolving every minute I sit in that class. I haven't learned anything this year. Worst spanish teacher ever.

Mrs. Soss was an AMAZING teacher. I was struggling at the beginning of the year, and she put me right back on track. She is so funny and she really makes the class entertaining with all of her stories and such. She is a great teacher and I really hope I have her for my other Spanish classes in the future.

Senora Soss is probably the sweetest teacher I've ever had. She has no problem explaining "un poco en ingles" for us when we don't understand something, and the bulk of the grade in her class is just vocab quizzes, so if you do well on those you can easily get a 95 or 96 in the class. She never yells or gets frustrated and she's extremely helpful towards every student. I'm sad that she won't be my teacher anymore after this year. Her class was really fun.

mrs. soss is basically one of my favorite teachers of all time. even though our class is crazy, she never yells or gets mad, and she's always been super helpful and nice. she's also willing to show us her wedding pictures when we ask, even though it's not part of our daily plan. she's funny and nice, and she's not just a teacher--she's a person, too. i'm really sad that this year is ending because if i never have her for a teacher again, i'll be really sad. she makes spanish really enjoyable.

I thought Soss was a good teacher, always fair. You just have to get used to speaking in Spanish all the time. In the end, speaking all the time really helps.

Good teacher and nice. Unfortunetally the Spanish department works slowly and the class gets repetitive but she's always happy to be there and that reflects well on the environment of the class

I love Sra. Soss! She's a pretty easy grader but, she's not that clear. It's probably because she only talks in Spanish when she's explaining things but, it would help if she spoke more English to exp
