Worst teacher I've ever had. She loses her temper easily and when she does she decides she's not our teacher anymore, and refuses to help. She's very disorganized and irrational when it comes to grading. She expects us to know everything.

Never hated a teacher as much as I hate her. She randomly decides to stop teaching and not help her students. Her grading methods make no sense and she is very unorganized.

very easy class. but class not as enjoyable as it could be. but i would take her class if u want an easy A. tests and quizzes are not that hard. but again, her class is painstakingly boring and i have her 6th period where everyone is itching to leave the class. also dont get on her nerves

She isn't the most gifted Spanish teacher and grades erring low. Fashions herself hip and approachable, but is really quite tempermental and holds grudges. She isn't pleasant to be around, commands more ridicule than respect, WON'T round grades, and is aptly described as a mean, jaded spinster.

Took 3 Spanish classes with this teacher. She's nice if you are... so the people complaining about her temper are probably the ones who don't study and then fail the test...!

My counseler mentioned to me that while she is harder than the other teachers, her Spanish is very good and she sets you up to go on to a higher level. her problem is she is very boring and is unalbe to gain the trust and respect of the class. Just don't be an idiot, and you'll survive.

She is OK as long as you do not mess around too much in class, and if you do not get on her bad side then you will do fine

not a great teacher, but if you talk to her she really does try to help you out. she can get cross alot, and is a bit dramatic. it could be easy if you pay attention, but thats not easy to do itself.

Awesome teacher who is nice to you if she likes you. She expects you to know the material, which you should, since it was taught to you. She is strict, but just try hard and pay attention to her.

She does seem a bit strict but if you really try hard in her class you'll be fine. Also at office hours she will really help you so just try your best
