Had McKinney for Spanish 1, 3, and 4. She is one of two spanish teachers who have any idea of what they're doing. Had more fun and learned more from McKinney than anyone else at DO. She treats her students as young adults and would do nothing to hurt them intentionally.
She played favorites because her snobby daughter was a cheerleader so she was "in" on who was popular. Encouraged students to make fun of each other in Spanish. She was unkind and I dreaded every day I attended her class. Worst teacher I had at del oro and looks like not much has changed since I left 10 years ago. Shocking.
knows spanish as best as you could hope for. amazing teacher. very funny. helpful beyond requirement. slightly plays favorites (she'll like you if you participate and if you have a good sense of humor, like i did). always willing to help. doesnt give make-up tests or papers, or anything like that, so dont mess up. great person, and ROCKS AT GUITAR HERO!
does play favorites a bit (which helps if you're her favorite) but overall a pretty good teacher.
She totally plays favorites to those who play any sports like baseball and basketball. She didnt even know my name at the end of the term. If you dont participate you are nobody.
Mrs. McKinney did an incredible job of preparing us for the AP test. I thought she was both an awesome person and an awesome teacher. She really knows her Spa
Plays favorites and seems somewhat ditzy at times. Knows her spanish but not much else.
she is a very fun teacher if u get along with her. great sense of humor
GREAT TEACHER FOR SPANISH 1 I WISH SHE TEACHED SPANISH 2!!!!
she is a gr8 teacher, has a gr8 sense of humor and she makes things fun. She always takes the time to help you and she teaches you alot. she's great.
Mckinney is easy, but so easy that you will not learn anything, especially in AP spanish.
