He will rant about how teenagers and society today is so messed up which can be annoying when i don't care and would rather be learning the lesson. He loves to share his opinions on life and talk abou

Rambles too much to be an effective teacher. Thinks that students actually love Spanish culture as much as he does. He teaches things that won't be on the test or things no one really cares for. He also keeps his students past the bell because he thinks he can speak faster than he really can. Grades easily for oral presentations, though.

He gave me an A when I deserved a B. I had a 88% in the class, and got a low B as my finals score, but he still gave me the A. Just pretend to be interested in his discussions and philosophies of other cultures - he will love you for it. I love how he goes off topic for the whole period, then just tells us the homework at the last minute of class. Sometimes he just say, "Ahh, forget it, no homework tonight clase." He's really fun, lol.

He knows he loves me, I know he cares. And I would never, not be there. He is my love, he is my heart. And we would never, ever, ever be apart. Are we an item? Boy, quit playin'!!! (ARRR!) We're just friends, what are you sayin'? Take another look right in my eyes, my first love, he touched my heart for the first time. And I was like "baby baby baby ohhhhhh" "baby baby baby noooooooooooooooo" "baby baby baby oohhhhhhh"

at first, he didnt seem like a bad guy. but then as time went on, he starts critizing us for alot of stuff. he always calls us cheaters, liars, deceivers, losers...and others. i think i've heard " you guys are just trash " like 10 times this year, and second semester only started. i would appreciate it if he respected his students more. its fine to scold students for doing something wrong, but its not apporpriate to insult the students so directly. and he wastes so much of our class time talking about his l
