Senora Ortiz was one of my best teachers! She's really nice, and is an amazing teacher. She's also really soft-spoken, but can be very strict. Doesn't give detentions unless you really deserve them.
Over all, her class is fun and you learn a lot.

She's really nice and soft-voiced. However, her quizzes are sometimes quite hard and she expects you to know all of the accents on the words. Overall, a nice person but can get strict. She gives a lot of detentions but as long as you finish all of your work and remember to bring the textbook and don't talk out of turn, you'll do fine.

I do not really like her, but its partly my fault. I talk a lot, (in spanish,) and i answer questions I am not asked to answer. What bothers me most about her is the way she hands out detentions, (I h

She is really helpful. I was doing well in her Spanish 1 class and she encouraged me to get ahead. She would even pair me up with the Spanish 2 students at lunch so that I could learn Spanish 2.

As she says, she has "negative patience." She's a decent teacher just try not to be too loud, and she hates it when people a) talk when she's talking or b) talk across the room. Other than that, it's fairly easy though try and get good grades on the quizzes, since they seem to be a big part of your grade. A fairly boring class at times.
