I had Hoppen for drama at the start of the year i thought that she would be a fun interesting teacher. I was wrong she gave me a c in drama and her explanation was that i was absent too much! I was only absent 3 days in the hole year! I got Fm and E on all my scits. She just didn't like me. She a semi fun teacher definitely has a lot of energies which makes class more fun than it would be with boring teacher. My main advice is dont miss class and always listen.

She needs to act her age, stop hitting on boys that could be as old as her son. Please stop wearing the alien "dress" - wear age appropriate clothes.

she is condescending to her students if they want to ask a question of are having trouble is school. she will yell at her students in front of the class if they don't know something. she is diffucult to understand because she will jump from one subject to the next and she isn't considerate that she is teaching people a second language. she is also really charismatic in a weird way it is even worse because its like she knows how rude she is being. she has no respect for her students.

My daughters first year of spanish she had a T.O.C. from september to january and she said that this teacher was the best teacher ever. After Mrs. Hoppen came back to school she quit spanish. over all she's a VERY strict and MOODY teacher and she needs to take the time to be less condescending when students ask questions or are having trouble in general.

she is the worst teacher i've ever had. she has huge mood swings, and i'm scared of her. the only way to have a good year is becoming her teacher's pet.

Really great teacher. Especially if you pay attention in her class and don't whine about everything. Pretty funny although strange at times.

She's actually good if you do her homework and show up on time, but she doesn't like to omit marks of your reasonable absences. It's okay watching her weird shows in class,kinda funny.

She's a sweet teacher, though strict with the troublemakers and a bit harsh to some students when she is stressed out. I'm sad that I will not be able to take her Spanish class next year... since I moved away. :(

A very funny lady, and quite a good teacher, and she'll devote extra time to help you if you're willing. She can have mood swings, but overall she's happier more then she is moody.

She's really nice and eccentric, although a few times a week she's all of a sudden in THE worst mood ever. You can pull a lot of stuff with her when she's happy, but when shes not be prepared to shutup and learn.
