Really mediocre teacher. I don't care about the false accusations, but I do care about being taught material and given a fair chance to succeed. Sr. Gross said to me: "I don't think you are an A student. Regardless of your test scores I'm giving you a B." I went on to graduate top ten in my class. Thanks Sr. Gross, glad I could learn so much about how the system works. Teaching is about feedback, coaching and motivation. Try it sometime.
Mr. Gross is a very nice man who genuinely wants his students to take away good things from his class. Obviously everyone knows about the crime he was accused of committing last year, but he's been proved innocent and it makes me really upset that such a nice man almost had his life turned upside down because of a child's lies. Anyway, as a teacher he's nice but you will have to ask questions as he only speaks in Spanish and it can get difficult to understand him at some points.
Jules Gross, though he went out on his own terms, should be remembered for his efforts as a teacher, not for his personal life. In class, he was...adequate. He was sorta strict, and didn't present the material in the best way, but he was a good enough guy. I'll say that I preferred his replacement to him, but I still think he was alright.
This guy is the best Spanish teacher ever, no matter what anybody says about him.
He is a really nice guy, but he just was not organized or prepared enough to take on honors. He is willing to help, but often forgets, or gives very vague reponses, which do not help at all. Most of what he assigns is managable, but the instructions are usually unclear, vague, or miscomunicated. He will probably get better with more experience.
i hate him. worst teacher ever. doesnt even teacher. i cant stand him.
One year of Spanish, and good riddance. Unhelpful, too many little projects, undefined goals and expectations.
He is a cool guy, I'll admit it. I just have a few issues with his teaching. He expects all of the kids in his class to already know how to understand everything perfectly almost from day 1. It doesn't work that way. Also, it is very hard to get a good grade in his class, due to the fact that most of the points you get are from projects alone. He gives out projects like their small. Another issue is that he won't tell you your grade unless you see him privately after school.
Does this seem fair at all, Monday-test. Tuesday-Project due. Friday-Test????????? does he realize we dont go home and study or even think about spanish ??
great teacher. realy understands students and the way they should be taught.
Profe!!! FINALLY a teacher who understands the point of Spanish:not to get every single grammatical thing right but to be able to communicate effectively in Spanish, like you would in the real world. His projects are very easy, but his tests are kind of difficult. You are sure to love him (and his painfully corny jokes). He's one of those teachers who realizes that our lives don't revolve around one class: his. He treats you more like a friend than a student and acts as happy as his various ties :)
You will learn an important lesson if you are Mr. Gross's student but unfortunately not one concerning Spanish. The lesson is one in adaptibility; that is, learning the nuances of a teacher's grading system and exploiting them effectively. Grades do not correspond with ability, for the most part. Participate frequently, laugh loudly but not obnoxiously so at his jokes, and smile pleasantly as you greet him cheerfully in the hallways when you pass him. Proficiency takes a back seat in his 4AP classes.
he was the worst. not helpful and u didnt learn anything all year.
OMG hes the worst teacher ever. And every day you cant help but fall asleep in his class. if you miss one homework a call goes home. and participation is like 90 percent of your grade. I recomend trying to switch out of his class before u have him
he can't teach spanish 3..he goes over basic words like 'hola' in spanish 3!!! He goes on and on about how we are dissrespectful. His quizzes are so random...you CAN"T study for them..but you can try..
Mr. Gross is a nice guy and a good teacher but he is dreadly boring. Also, he is too obssessed with spanish but he will help you if you need help. Overall hes a good teacher.
Learning level 1 in a spanish 3 class is not the wayy to do it...goshh he is so " MILITANT"
He's a nice guy but he assigns too many projects and his class is boring.
good teacher, sometimes boring, but a good teacher. pays too much attention to participation grades, taught me lots of spanish
dont understand some of these low ratings. mr gross: u are one of the best teachers at east. keep it real
Great class! He's got a great sense of humor, if you're intelligent enough to pick up on it; which not too many on this board seem to be.
everything is participation otherwise hes an easy teacehr
Mr. Jules gross is the most boring spanish teacher i've ever had. he speaks unclearly in spanish all class, and noone hasany idea what he's talking about.
A great teacher, very nice, helpful, knows what kids are interested in...just don't talk in his class or be disrespectful and you're set.
Too many whiners on this board!!! Mr. Gross is fair and pushes students to excel. The idea is learn something new and prepare for the next level (college).
he grades wayyyyy too hard. make one small mistake and he'll take off a few points.
hes so nice n he trys so hard buh the class takes advantage of it
He tries really hard, but sometimes gets fed up with his class.
