i had her for spanish 3 as a freshman and i enjoyed her class very much. as one of the few freshman in my class i got to meet the "older kids" and that was cool. profesora let us bring food in and have parties whenever we wanted. her accent makes her class feel more realistic than some of the other language teachers but as long as you keep up with homework its an easy A

Prof Guitierrez does not clarify anything, doesn't really talk things out (just kicks people out of her class) and does not know what she is talking about..She just makes us watch the videos and do bookwork but we don't understand any of it

If you can, try your hardest not to get this teacher. She teaches spanish 1 and 3. She is an all around awful teacher. Spanish is a subject that you really need to have a teacher help with you and work with you. She is not in any way that teacher. She doesn't explain anything to you at all, she refuses to help you with anything. This is a class that you teach yourself in, and hope you do all right... I promise you, you will not succede in spanish with her as a teacher.

Sometimes she could seem nice for a moment, but most of the time she was mean and spiteful. Her teaching style is that of following the book word for word and having the same structure day after day. So many YHS teachers are great, I'd hope there would be higher standards for spanish teachers.

I am currently the mother one of her students and coincidentally a former Spanish teacher. From what I understand, her methods are mundane, do not elicit class participation, provide no opportunities for functional communication and are downright tedious and boring. I am surprised and saddened that a school such as Yorktown would tolerate such mediocrity. Quality language teaching should be dynamic, interactive, unpredictable and applicable--elements that appear to be totally missing from her classes.

Seems to dislike large portions of the people in all of her classes. Not imposible to get along with, just hard.

She appears to have little to no passion for what she does, which is unfortunate for everyone.

A nice person though her notes/lectures are so unclear but the work helps. Grading is way too tough (an F if you miss one accent mark). A tad intimidating at times as well.

Shes sooo nice and her class is usually a lot of fun and not stressful, but shes not a very good teacher. She needs to plan more projects, and less talking.

Uses all sorts of different techniques for teaching. Just do the work and study a bit for tests, you'll do fine. For projects, just ask until she speaks English
