Hilarious class, shed always flip out and send people out. Her class was real easy but no one took it seriously. She would always flip out and students would always push her limits.

Probably the worst teacher of my high school career. She yells at you for inane reasons, and constantly tries to make her self sound smarter than she is by using big words and refusing to go back on any previous bad decisions shes made. The class is boring and my spanish has gotten worse over the course of the year. SWITCH OUT for your own good.

Cevallos is probably the worst teacher I have ever had...she is mind-numbingly easy, but she has no idea what she's teaching so her tests/quizzes make no sense and people still fail them. She is a complete lunatic and their is no way of getting around her craziness, but as soon as you see her name on your schedule YOU BETTER SWITCH OUT IMMEDIATELY because you wont learn a thing and a waiting list develops for switching out of her class. I was stuck with her for two periods and they were TERRIBLE

Worst teacher I have ever had, but her latin class is incredibly easy. You will be screwed for future classes though because you don't learn a thing. She will yell at you for talking even if you don't say a word. If you get on your good side you will do well.

cevallos did not do a whole lot of teaching, just a lot of student presentations. many vocab quizzes and made the class much more difficult than it needed to be
