04/11/12 - I have had her as a teacher for two years in a row (Spanish 2 and 3). She isn't bad, and is a fairly nice person, however not the best teacher. Absent a lot, her notes are not always consistent,and a tad bit rude sometimes (not too bad). The one thing that bothers me is we haven't been doing practically anything this entire year for Spanish 3, but right towards the end of the semester (near AP testing) she just had to asign us a 26 minute long video project. She really should be more organized. Show More Show Less

02/28/12 - First off she doesn't teach anything except how to sleep during dumb videos. Nothing she plans or does helps on the test. Oh yeah & her tests are easy except for the fact that she doesn't tell you what's going to be on them.She snaps at little things and singles people out. It is rude and unprofessional to single a student out in the middle of class. She needs to work on her own attitude before commenting on someone else's.she comments on students' attitudes when she is just as rude & sarcastic Show More Show Less

12/23/10 - I am so glad I dropped her class. She is a horrendous teacher. First of all she cannot teach, we basically did nothing for an entire semester. When we did do something we did dumb game or poster things that she gave minmal instruction and made us resent in front of the class like we were 5. She is also very rude and mean to her students; personal attacks and just overall rudeness and sarcasm when you talk to her. I am sure many agree that she is a terrible teacher. Show More Show Less

07/10/09 - Im not sure if its because of the different teachers but there is a pretty big gap of difficulty between spanish 2 and spanish 3. Her tests and quizzes are unique, not the best way of doing it thats for sure. She can be nice and sweet but more often she can be snappy and rude, don't make a peep when shes talking Show More Show Less
