I don't know how she is for lower levels of Spanish, but Ms. Macias isn't that great of an AP Spanish teacher. All we do is textbook work and weekly homework that doesn't even prepare us for the AP test. I wish we had more discussions and presentations. Honestly she isn't even that great at Spanish, her accent is terrible, and she doesn't actually teach, just yells at us and sits at her desk. I wouldn't recommend taking AP Spanish at Valencia.
My graduated son believes she is an amazing teacher, I am adding this to boost her rating :)
A MI ME ENCANTA ESTA PROFESORA! TOMA ESTA CLASE AHORA! UDS. NECESITAN APRENDER LA LENGUA DE ESPANOL DE ESTA MAESTRA!
C in her class because I was lazy. No excuses on that. But a 5 on the AP test. Idk why kids hate her she's nice and really an awesome teacher who wants her students to learn. Why is it bad to want students to apply themselves to their school work now? It makes me frustrated when I hear kids complain about her because she's "mean." If she's mean then that must mean that a bunny is a wild animal that attacks people. Don't listen to dumb kids and she tries to bond with her kids.
I had her for Spanish 2, 3 and last year AP. I did all the work and got a 4 on the test. Do your work and ask for help.
I had her for Spanish 2, 3 and now AP. It's not that hard if you do your work. There is a lot, but my friends said it's worth it when you take the test.
I had the AP class last year. A lot of work, but getting a 4 on the test made it worth it. I heard the test is different. You have to trust.
After having her for one semester when I was a freshman, I made sure I got her again and again for Spanish 2 and 3. She's honestly the best Spanish teacher at Valencia and she makes class such a joy to go to! Very helpful :)
Teaches well, very fun class, very excited to teach
I loved this class! I had it both semesters and I pray that I will have her again! Mrs. Macias is an amazing teacher who goes out of her way to make sure that her students fully comprehend the material. I have I had to pick a favorite teacher, it would be Mrs. Macias.
Do your work and you're fine. Mess around and your screwed. Bring your stuff to class. Your grade is up to you.
The best spanish teacher at Valencia. If you pay attention you will do good. Very helpful too . get her
She holds a grudge and she hates tardies and if you just happen to make one mistake she will hold it against you for the rest of your life. If you start being the perfect or ideal kid she will stil
A very strict and stubborn teacher. However, her class is very easy as long as you do your "weeklies" or other assignments.
She is very strict, but her class is extremely easy. AP Spanish is easy to pass - you just gotta do your work. I don't believe any teacher can "teach" a language, so I wouldn't say she's the best.
she is very strict and can be mean at times, but her class is really easy and she is probably the best spanish teacher at VHS
The best Spanish teacher out there! Always focused on teaching the material in a learnable way, and has a good sense of humor, as long as the class knows when to be funny and when to study
Although she is rather strict, having standards and strict tardy policies, she's the best spanish teacher @ VHS. She tends to be more lenient with people in her class before.
she is by far the best spanish teacher at this school. everyone whines about her cuz they arent willing to actually put time into learning. you will learn spanish well in this class. she is nice
plays favorites. treats students like kindergarteners. is extremely unreasonable and will not yield even when she KNOWS she is wrong. horrible, narrow-minded teacher who can't teach for her life.
I wouldn't want to be one of the students she dislikes...
great teacher. meticulous about tardies. i learned a lot in her class. easy if you pay attention and study
mrs macias is the best spanish teacher ever.....shes so funny and has a spunky personality... got to love her
She will do anything to help you do your best. Just don't be late!
Shes good, but i should be in AP Spanish so don't ask me....This class is super easy...if you remember to study.
easily got over 100% in her class. out of the 5 spanish teachers i've had, she is definitely the best.
