Spanish 102 Taken for Credit:Yes Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: It's my life Grade Received: N/A
"Amazing lectures" "Better Like Group Projects" "Would take again"

She is an amazing professor with a passion for teaching spanish. It's sad that she has to deal with lazy students who expect college to be a breeze. If you attend all classes you get an A on the final automatically. SHE IS THE BEST PROFESSOR OF ALL TIME! DON'T GO TO COLLEGE IF YOU ARE GOING TO BE LAZY !!! NO CLASS IS EASY THAT'S WHY ITS COLLEGE...

SPAN 201 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: You need it sometimes Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: N/A

Curriculum is completely inept. She LITERALLY does not teach the class. Instead she splits you into groups to read the material yourselves and then come up with a lesson to teach the rest of the class. The class is 2.5 hours but she only gives 1h for exams and then you grade them after. Basically she makes her students do her entire job for her.

BEST SPANISH TEACHER EVER!! She has such an amazing personality and she truly, and i mean TRULY cares about her students.Usually everything is clear, but NOBODY is perfect. If you respect her, she shows respect back.Ive seen students who were EXTREMELY rude to her, and she still does her best to help them! Just attend class and it will be a breeze!

she wants the students to pass, but struggles to properly explain what she wants and struggles at properly answering clarifying questions. Overall fun and easy, but an easy A!

Martha can be very difficult at times. Book is used everyday and attendance is mandatory. She is hard to undetstand her material. When asked for help good luck with that. But She offers lots of extra credit but lots of hmk too. She truly cares about her students . Pay attention in class , participate , and do all of the hmk and you will pass..

SPAN101 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Low Grade Received: N/A

If you've never taken spanish before DON'T take her class. I was the only one in the class that had never taken spanish and I dropped! She barley speaks any english in class and expects you to know everything already. She doesn't help you understand and homework was very hard the first week! Will be a good class if you know some spanish already.

I thought Palomar would have excellent Spanish teachers with all the Spanish/English speakers in the area, I was mistaken. Martha barely speaks English, gets very mad when her vague instructions are not followed exactly. She accuses people of not doing college level work then has us make crosswords and play bingo.

English is her second language, so if you're trying to understand the tranlation from English to Spanish...GOOD LUCK!!! Her exams are mprehensive and when you ask her for more understanding...GOOD LUCK with that!!! Plus side to taking her...you can totally pass on doing extra credit alone! :)

Martha is a wonderful teacher. If you have perfect attendance you don't have to take the final. She does everything out of the work book and text book. Homework is given pretty much every class. Study for the tests, do the homework, and get extra points for writing on the board. She is really helpful and I am going to take her for Spanish 102

Really sweet & helpful, but this class was divided between her & C. Gomez. Thus, it was a trainwreck. She tried her best to add some organization in the class & actually teach us Spanish, but students were disrespectful & rude towards her because she actually wanted us to learn. If she offered a class with ONLY her and NOT Gomez, I would take her.

I took Martha's spanish class one semester and it was sooo much fun. She is the best spanish teacher i've ever had. I barely passed with an A but that was my fault for not attending class, just attend class and you'll do fine.

I loved this class, especially Martas class, what really helped speak spanish better was the oral projects and I love the listening techniques she offers in her class. She has a very good heart about how you want to learn this language because we all learn differently.
