My son had this teacher for Spanish 2 as a freshman. Oh my gosh, as a parent I am disgusted that the school district would keep a teacher of this caliber at such a good school. I hired a tutor (who also tutored 3 other kids in this class) to actually teach my son the Spanish material because he was not learning it from her. The tutor said all the students said the exact same thing. She does not give the students their tests or quizzes back to look at either. Run away!

Sometimes teaches while in the middle of a test. Her tests are hard, mostly because they come out of nowhere. Her website is often inaccurate, and those who gave her five stars are probably her favorite students. She has clear favorites and will do anything to help them, but blames the class for failing. She encouraged cheating on the finale. She does not teach, instead gives materials. She laughed at me for not knowing a vocab word (I learned different vocab since I am a transfer student).

Profe is great. She gives lots of packets but they are easy to do. I had her for Spanish 1 last year and 2 now. Last year was so easy, but I am having a more challenging year this year. She has been there for me and I have come during lunch with her very week. I got my grade up from an F to a B.

This is my first year with Profe, and I have learned close to nothing. We aren't taught anything, she just tells you what you need to know. She gives you a new concept, explains it in 2 minutes, then you have a quiz next class. You only do packet work all class, no interaction. Very awful teacher, I loved spanish and was looking forward to learning more and in the future becoming fluent, but not anymore.

Absolutely horrible teacher. Still got an A in her class because I'm a genius, but got multiple referrals thanks to my hardheadedness about her ridiculous class policy. Treated us like kindergartners when she clearly is stuck with a middle school mentality.

She is the worst teacher. She has so many different packets she makes us do. Many times she says do page 5 or something (random number) and I do page 5 on a packet, next day she says I did it in the wrong packet. I try paying attention in class but it's impossible. The only people with A's in the class are people who had to retake spanish 1 and spanish speaking people. Also for packets, she makes us print all of them. at least print them for us. 0/10 wouldn't take again.

Profe is pretty confusing. Her instructions on homework are pretty bad. The hw on her website are different than in-class hw which creates problems such as the homework being done wrong. Also, because she tries to talk in Spanish as much as possible (even though it is understandable) creates issues like taking forever to get work done. She has no skill at controlling the class and whatever we don't finish in class is hw which may not sound like a lot but it adds up if it happens every class.

My dad said he thought she was crazy. She knows the spanish language but I think needs to gain a little bit more control over her classroom. I think she is kind of crazy to, but she is a spanish 1 teacher in high school! No one in that class wants to there! Everyone just wants to get their credits and get out. I can see why she is always in a bad mood, but she needs to start yelling "Chiklay la basuda" like a mad women. Knows her stuff, just needs to teach a bit better.

I had Cercet my freshman year for Spanish 2 and failed her class. Mostly because she wouldn't teach anything for the entire unit and then try to cram everything in the day before the test so we were always overwhelmed. She would also get mad at me for reading in her class even if I had all of my work done and we weren't learning anything anyway. She mostly sits at her desk eating or plays some rather annoying Spanish videos. I would not recommend Cercet to anyone.

This is the worst teacher ever. She does not care about the well being of her students. If you get this teacher DROP OUT. When I went into lunch for help, she was occupied by her TV and seemed very annoyed that I was in there. She can't control the class and we had a sub who was able to keep the class in control without screaming all of the time. I was able to prove her wrong on one of her tests after she argued with me saying that I was wrong. Please try to switch out of her class

Mrs. Cercet was a great teacher always willing to spend time at lunch or break to help you with anything you may have not picked up in class. Many students don't like her because they got on her bad side or have heard stories from other students about her. But if you want to learn Spanish, she is definitely someone to help. It will be greatly appreciated always. She brings life to the classroom and characterizes the class to make it suitable to have fun with Spanish.

She had absolutely no control over the class, was always in a bad mood-probably because she hated our class and teaching in general, and I only remember sitting down and taking actual notes twice throughout the whole year. I learned nothing and had to take the next level of Spanish at a private teaching school. She loses a lot of assignments so try to make copies of them and save all your work because she will give you a zero if she can't find an assignment.
