I studied with Dr. Junkers as a student at Dominican Academy in the 80s. I graduated in 1989. She, along with Roseanne Perrone,the Latin teacher, was fantastic and provided me the foundation for a life long love of learning and appreciating foreign languages. Today I speak French, Spanish and Portuguese fluently. I credit Dr. Junkers with my excellence in French when I got to university. I hope that today's students appreciate the experienced instructor they have.
Dr. Junkers may be a tough teacher, but I have made great strides in French thanks to her. She is the best language teacher I have ever had!
Dr.Junkers gets easily sidetracked, but always complains when the students go off topic for a second. She NEVER lets us read French or have conversations in French. Everything is done from the textbook from 1980 where the vocabulary is just not relevant and when using currency we use Francs, instead of just using euros. We are never allowed to watch French movies and she's always complaining about why America is awful and that France is somehow better........
please ask her about penguins... she's obsessed. honestly, shes a great woman, and very intelligent. just easily sidetracked.
She's one of the sweetest, most helpful teachers in the building. Very easily sidetracked and perhaps overly detail-oriented, but she loves what she's teaching and is always willing to help.
if u dont get the accent perfect its WRONG....but hilarious.. she definitely has to be a lot more enthusiastic though,,,
not only is the grading strange, she does not make the students speak french enough in class. :(
She's a good teacher but she wastes time and this is the only teacher I know that will give you a 99 and 3/4 on a test.
an ok teacher. but her grading methods are horrible. If you get two things wrong she takes off ten points. She is too precise in grading..BEWARE
