Really good teacher. She taught more than Spanish. Very understanding and helpful regarding grades. She puts non-Spanish speakers in the spotlight considering most people taking it already know Spanish but it does help. Be patient and pay attention. There is lots of homework and practice but it all pays off. Overall makes you smile, sweet teacher.

Previous ratings are just wrong. This teacher teaches you more than just Spanish, she teaches you about a variety of things. I had fun in this class and I recommend that you take her. Like any other class, you have to read etc.

She is a hard grader, but she is very helpful,you just need to make an effort.I learned a lot in her class and not just about spanish but life in general. She is the most insperational teachers I have had. She has breast cancer and still manages to put a smile on her face every day and I dont care what others say she is a outstanding teacher.

Do not take this teacher, she is very cofusing, unorganized and her grading scale is very confusing. I have never in my life gotten a D on a presentation and she totally failed me. She is very picky and anal........don't waste your time.

Part of what made this class so hard was never really knowing what she wanted. About 3/4 of the class dropped out. You have to show up every week and don't be late. Only she is allowed to show up late. I enjoy Spanish language classes but this was probably my worst ever. I don't think anyone in the class received an A and no one enjoyed the class.

I Reccomend this teacher. You have a lot of presentations, but it really helped me with speaking in public. I learned a lot but. Show up to class and sit in front, she loves it. Whoever said that she favors navtive speakers is stupid. She is very fair, although sometimes unorganized.

She gets a bad rap from most people. It's simple: people who don't want to learn spanish, stay away. Those who really want to learn, you will learn a lot!! Is a bit unclear at times, but urges office visits and questions. Has tendency to be anal, so just make sure you UNDERSTAND WHAT SHE EXPECTS- don't assume!! Hard grader, esp. pres. (3).

I'm a native speaker and I didn't get an A! There's reading every night and like 5 presentations. She lectures pretty fast and loudvtoo, so if u aren't too great in Spanish don't take her. If u can pass her presentations u can pass presentations in all of your classes. Don't get me wrong, u actually do learn a lot in her class about Latin America.

This class definately put me through the ringer. I would NOT recomend her as a teacher. She will single you out if you make a mistake. There is a HUGE work load. She expects you to come see her durring her office hours. She is very strict and unpredictable and sometimes unaproachable. Also if you miss class a lot expect your grade to suffer.

Not the worst, not the best. Learned a lot, but she often appeared overworked - we were told we'd get a midterm grade, then a grade on the last day of class but no. No one has any idea. Almost ran out of time to do everything on the sylabus. Very authoritarian. Can be pleasant and helpful, but you never know when she'll just blow you off instead.

This teacher has high standards for students who know Spanish. She looks down on those who are pochos, so you better step your game up. You can improve your Spanish, especially if you're 2nd generations Latinos, but you better work. You don't have to kiss any ass. On the contrary, show her you want to learn & better yourself & that's all you need.

She is very picky. Tests are tricky. Absences count more than you think. She has her favorites (of course, you gotta be mexican).Quizes every week. She likes to pick on people who she dislikes. Everything has to be her way. This is truly the WORST teacher ever. I DO NOT RECOMMEND HER AT ALL!

i am going to have to agree with what a lot of people have stated here. she is very anal. she has her own way or the highway. she has her favorites for sure. she requires that you do at least four verbal presentations of at least 7-8 minutes without, i repeat without note cards. en espanol. not recommended unless you are up for a challenge.
