She was very kind and knowledgeable and prepared us well. She went above and beyond to get a lesson across. Although her tests are hard, she prepares her students for the final exam.

She is a nice person but when she teaches sometimes it's confusing. But she respects people and won't let anybody insult anyone.

LOVED BOCCA. she's so kind and really chill. she shouldn't even be a spanish teacher she should be a guidance counselor. Everyone goes to her for advice and to tell her their problems. I had her two years in a row and even though at times you have to teach yourself some stuff, its pretty easy. oh and thought class parties were over in elementary school? nope still have them in her class. she also loves desserts so bring her some homemade stuff and she will love you forever.

I LOVE BOCCA!!! She is the best Spanish teacher I will ever have and is the only Spanish teacher I've had while at candlewood. She really cares about all the students and should be a guidance counselor. She makes easy and fun songs to help learn Spanish. Her class is always so happy and fun thanks to her. You play games, sing songs, watch Spanish movies, etc. ofc you take notes a lot, but I don't mind. The only thing I don't like is he every night even though it's pretty easy and surprise quizze

Sra Boccasini is by far my favorite teacher I know some people complain they didn't learn a lot, but thats because she's such a fun teacher, that they don't take the class seriously. She is the best.
