I would recommend Mrs. Cruz to someone that know Spanish generally well and just wants to polish it. She is not the best at explaining things and it is honestly pretty difficult to figure out what is going on in the class.

She's okay. She's VERY nice and really cares about her students. But I feel like I learned nothing after an entire year in AP. She desperately wants her students to take AP SpLit after AP SpLang, and spends entire class periods asking people why they won't take Lit after Lang. You pretty much do nothing in class -- think of it as a free period (except Thursdays, when you do audio recordings in the library). I feel like I got wrecked on the AP, but the class was very easy (got A both semesters)

Sra. Cruz es mas que una profesora de español, es una profe de vida. Ella siempre está disponible cuando una persona necesita ayuda y nos enseña la cultura, historia, y política hispana y hispanoamericana. Es una pena que no hay tantas personas en AP porque además de todo ella tiene un corazón grande y es maestra fantástica! Gracias Sra. Cruz! Que Viva la cultura hispana y hispanoamericana para siempre!

She's... weird, but I have to love her for it. Just pay attention. She's not the best teacher and you don't learn much because she's ADD or something, but it's an entertaining class.

senora cruz is amazing. people dont think she's teaching because they whine too much or they complain to her too much about what she does when she's teaching to us.

It's hard to rate her- it was easy to get an A in her class and I thought she was fine... until I took the AP test. It was then that I realized she could have helped us prepare so much more.

Alright, from a smart person's pov, she can teach, but not much. She gets off topic easily but although she has a great sense of humor, because we get off topic too much she barely teaches. But when she does teach she's pretty good.

Although she has a few students she especially likes to pick on for acting up, she's actually the one disrupting class

Mrs. Cruz....awful. She does care if you act up, and she does not teach you anything. Yeah w/e she likes to go nuts in class and put on a show during class...but let's face it...she so disorganized. I have no respect for her. Worst teacher I've ever had.

we watch a lot of videos. not a good class if you actually want to use spanish in life. Just remember, ask lots of questions to avoid work.
