Time in Sra. Woods-Petties classes was the best of my time at SRHS. I was able to skip 4 semesters of classes in college because of how much I'd learned. She made learning fun.

When I started high school, just like everyone else, tried to point out ways in which she was ridiculously hard and a terrible teacher, but after having her for 3 years I have come to love her! SHe has taught me an amazing amount of Spanish, and I feel completely comfortable now in speaking situations. Because of her, I got a 5 on the AP Spanish test! All of her tough classes are so worth it.

She's very personable herself, and it's a shame she's needlessly demonized by so many, but the structure of her class simply is not conducive to learning.

Can't grade-there is no evidence to participation so you can never prove that you participated regardless of her not paying attention while talking on the phone.

In Senora's class you'll learn like never before. It's a shame more students don't appreciate her. A great teacher!!!!!!!!!!

Ms. Woods Petties is a TERRIBLE teacher! She is always yelling at me, even when I'm not doing anything. I had such a passion for Spanish, up until this year!!!
