I feel my love of french draining in that class. I can't remember actually having a lesson, just standing in an awkward immersion circle and listening to terrible french music. Her quizzes aren't really graded on the material and she will take off a substantial amount of points just for spelling. She also grades us off of AP rubrics and all of our class is devoted to "preparing" us for AP French. Last time I checked, I wasn't in an AP class.
Not my favorite teacher
She has sufficiently destroyed my love for the language. I can't say I have learned much this year. The class has stressed me out a lot and it is impossible to do well. You do better on the tests if you are good at memorization not the actual language. She over reacts to everything and has a few kids that she just hates. Confuses me beyond belief and I don't enjoy the class at all. Very strange person. Hope I won't have to deal with her again.
Ms. El-games is not one of my favorite teachers. She is not a good French teacher. Ms. El-gamel picks clear favorites. When she decides that she doesn't like you, it is very obvious and she will not treat you fairly at all. Ms. El-gamel will have us sit in a circle on the floor and make us talk about our feelings and how school stresses us, when discussing this no one mentions that she is the teacher causing most of our stress and makes learning a foreign language a nightmare.
Ms. El-Gamel is easily the most caring teacher I had at BHS. She genuinely cares about her students' stress level and well-being and wants them to succeed. She can be picky and a hard grader, but her intentions are good and she is so incredibly sweet to be around!
She is actually a bad person. She says that she's "nice" and all but really she grades super harshly on tests and then doesn't seem to care. What disturbs me the most is that she doesn't acknowledge that she is doing all of this, and makes excuses.
She is a great teacher and friend. While sometimes her grading can be unfairly weighted, I do not consider this as a flaw in her teaching. She is probably the nicest teacher I have ever had.
good teacher but sticks to the rules way too much. Doesn't flex on anything like attendance or not making up work in a week. Never answers questions directly, avoids saying yes or no. Even if there is 1 minute left in class she will do a white board activity for 30 seconds. Takes off points for everything and doesnt tell you. Gives out dumb homework schedules that we're supposed to record scores with but she doesnt tell us our scores. No chances to talk to other students during class.
I think Rebecca Rae is the most caring person I have ever met. There has never been another person like her in my entire life. Do what you are suppose to do in her class and I bet you will see a lot m
Shes really sweet. Not exciting at all but I'm learning a lot in her class
She's a good teacher, but she does the same thing every single class.
EVERY SINGLE CLASS IS THE EXACT SAME. THE HOMEWORK IS ALL THE SAME. SHE IS A ZOMBIE.
She has no emotions and and the class is extremly structured and repetitive.She has a formula for the class that she keeps and she does not change any part of how she teaches to accomidate the class.
She's a great person and has very traditional teaching methods which can be percieved as strict, but really if you just partisipate and do your homework its easy.
So strict. So Boring. I think she is a nice person, but has bad policies as a teacher.
One of the sweetest people, even though she doesn't always seem it. Really cares about her students and teaching. Even with everything going on, she's there for her students.
I love Ms. El Gamel as a teacher, but she's kindda strict... U cant get ur hw if you forgot about it and such... but she's a cool person and ALWAYS well-dressed
REALLY monotone. She bores me out of my mind...but her class is really easy!
the most intolerable class EVER. yeah, she seems nice, but is actually just wicked passive agressive and is out to get you for everything! Just take Latin (best teachers)
Wow this might've been the most boring class I've ever taken. At least we got to watch a lot of movies =D.
She wasn't nearly as intensive as Squires she's nicer. It helped keeping the conversations strictly in German. What a shame threatening to phase it out.
noo more white boards ahhhh and yeah it would help if she showed emotion and didn't assign soo much busy work sheesh but she was good other than that
good teacher rewards hard work and effort. IF you do not do homework you will not get a good grade
needs to not speak english as if she was translating it
