She is actually interested in teaching kids & genuinely cares about the students. She's a pretty lenient teacher. She's also fair. Miss you Señora Planine <3

Worst spanish class I have ever been in. Switch out if you get her. She refuses to speak english, she is helpful only if you go see her on your own time but in class she is not the greatest. I honestly probably forgot more spanish this year than I learned as I feel like I know as much Spanish as I did 2 years ago, if not than less.

She refuses to speak in english from the first class and unlike most teachers she keeps it up. Hers testsand quizzes arent hard if you know the vocab. She checks homework everyday.

She's incredibly funny and energetic, and she knows what she's doing. She's pretty lenient about homework, but you still learn a lot throughout the year. She's the best Spanish teacher at South by far!

This lady has a heart of gold. She's extremely eccentric and enthusiastic about Spanish, and in the right class, her energy rubs off onto the class. She always tries to create a personal connection with her students and she leads several enriching programs in the community. One of the most unique teachers at South and a joy to have for AP Spanish.

One might say that the easiness of a teacher somewhat inversely affects the ease with which one learns a language. Te amo, Profesora Planine.
