She's a really nice teacher but she doesn't push her students to do better. Sometimes during our group work or individual work, she goes on her phone and doesn't acknowledge us as much.

One of the best Spanish teachers at Midwood no doubt! The basics are taught and the rest are your concerns. If you are a person who loves group work and you have her, you are blessed. Lots of group work!!!

Great teacher. So easy and everything you need is in textbook. She teaches you the basics (which is all you need) and doesn't go out of her way to complicate things. Study for the tests and do everything else and you'll have a 90+. Definitely deserves her teaching license.

At the beginning of the year, I thought that Spanish 5H with Gibbens was going to be great. Now, one month later, i realized that this is FALSE! Sure, she is sort of nice, but you don't learn anything

Yes, a little too much group work, but we all get to meet new ppl in the class. She simplifies everything and makes the material understandable, which is great.
