She keeps the class upbeat and fun, she takes her time to make sure everyone participates in her class. If you dont understand something go after class and she will talk you through it. Spanish class with her has honestly been a joy.
i'm sure she's a smart woman, but her teaching skills are not up to par. she's not here half of the time, and when she is, she barely teaches. everything is "so easy" to her, and she just expects us to know after she explains once. updates powerschool once a month. her class is actually really chill and fun, but i just wish we learned something for once; there has to be a balance.
Never updates grades so it really blinds you on how you're doing in the course....shes alright except for that...tries to be funny, not even going to comment on that.
Ms. Mel is an awesome teacher. She really cares that you learn. She's hard but she tells you from the beginning what you have to do to get a good grade. The kids that say she's mean is because they don't study and want an A but they don't get her. Franklin is lucky to have her. Don't let her retire.
Her Spanish III class certainly isn't impossible. You have to study every night for an A, but you can just study for tests and vocab and do fine. She knows what she's talking about, and I've never had an unclear answer to a question. The key to getting stuff right is to actually do the homework worksheets and ask her as many questions as possible when she goes over them. She doesn't really teach. Just gives extremely comprehensive notes. She is willing to help those who need it.
Hate her. She is extremely mean, does not care if you pass or fail, it is almost impossible to succeed in her class if you are not a Native Spanish speaker. Trust me, do not take Spanish 3 if you want to make an A. Even if you succeed in labs and tests those quizzes she has are practically impossible because they are full sentence translation quizzes and there are so many things she takes off for. Hate her and will always hate her.
Ms Mel is a great teacher. The students who complain is because they don't study.They just want the easy A and they;re not getting it.
Ms. Mel is a terrible teacher. She doesn't teach and expects her students to understand things she's never showed us before. Learning Spanish isn't worth all of the frustration that comes with her class.
you MUST be a baseball player or a Yankees fan to get on Mel's good side! she's an AWESOME teacher. you'll learn your Spanish!
Ms. Mel is a pretty good teacher (you learn a lot), but she often relies on getting laughs by making fun of students.
Ms Mel is awesome!! Really good teacher! You learn SO much in that class, but you really have to study a lot... it's worth the effort though
Gotta study in her class. Will B prepared for college spanish if you do. Fun teacher to have. Just don't get on her bad side.
Ms. Mel's okay, byt I have definitely had better teachers. She often treats me like I'm a fool for asking questions. She complains about the admin. too much
This munchkin appreciates her efforts. Remember the pencil.
way too hard. Mid-Level spanish at a good college was much easier and did more
Trip her when she walks by, and throw things at her; she'll still love you.
I will never forget Ms. Mel. I now have a degree in Spanish--Thanks Ms. Mel.
Nice but was not as great in 2000-2001 as in prior years
