I personally think Sr. Yarnton is the best teacher at FVHS. He incorporates having fun into learning Spanish. He does make participation fair. I have him this year for 5th period and I wont lie, I enjoy every bit of it. He is super understanding. I love on how he's always saying he "loves his job" bc well you can tell from howHe spends so much time making online quizzes and modules. He is the greatest teacher I have ever had (yes, I am combining the state I used to live in; Arizona, with this).

Yarnton is like the father I've never had. He is super chill and a good teacher but sometimes he can make you cringe with his jokes that can be lame, sometimes it's hella funny. His optional quizzes are sometimes useless since they don't raise your grade up. The test is easier than his quizzes. All as well, he is one of the best teachers I've had. He sidetracks a lot though but it helps him stand out as one of the funniest teachers.

Mr. Yarnton is extremely understanding and puts a lot of effort into making his students succeed with optional quizzes to boost grades along with modules to explain lessons if there is any confusion. He is very inspiring and never fails to teach us a lesson about the language, multiple cultures, and life lessons as well. So far being in his class has been very enjoyable and interesting. I do believe his pop quizzes and online discussions are not very effective, but otherwise he's great.

I really dislike his grading scale, but even with it, it is still possible to get an A. He is hilarious at times, but I think he is a bit overrated. I enjoy his class, but sometimes he says things that I don't find funny or irritating. He is good at covering the necessary topics, but I know that his tests are not easy and you can lose lots of points easily. Participate! That will boost your grade. If you do not have a passion for Spanish, I would not recommend AP. Still a cool guy thoguh!

So hard. I have no idea what he says on a daily basis. His lottery ticket this is a joke and just a way to seem funny. He's not funny just annoying. I got a great grade in his class both semester but I had to work my butt off and felt like I was in an AP class. ITS NOT AN AP CLASS, IF I WANTED AP I WOULD'VE SIGNED UP FOR AP. He needs to teach at a college level not high school.

I was about to transfer out of his class the first day I had him. He did not say a single word of english. I thought that I was going to do bad in the class. However, I decided stick it out and he turned out to be one of the best teachers I've ever had. He is funny and sincerely cares for his students. He makes us work harder than what is required and it really does pay off in the end. I have him for two years now and I still always look forward to his class. awesome teacher ever hands down:)
