Where do I start... I had her as a spanish teacher in grade 9. She is definitely a kind person, but the bad outweighs the good. BY FAR. She would promise extra credit points that she would never award, she clearly had favorites, she made it very clear who was doing bad in her class. She told a guy he was failing in front of our class... Probably because of her EXTREME incompetency as a teacher, mainly caused by lack of intelligence and disorganization. She had good intentions, though.

I really liked her in grade 9, but by grade 10 it was clear who her favourites were. My mark fell, by like 15%...And she will pick on you if she doesn't think your listening of whatever. I have been called out several times simply for taking out my laptop to write notes. Otherwise, the class is pretty easy. Sometimes class can actually be fun (Fun Fridays!)

Zapata was my careers teacher for some reason. Unlike many, I have no problem with her english. However, she picked very blatant favourites who had an obvious advantage (average projects getting high 90s) and did not allow for much creativity.

Alright, so if you are enthusiastic about spanish, she'll adore you. but she thinks im stupid, even though i get 90s in all my other classes. i found spanish very hard to get good marks in because she is very technical on tests. for example, i used a definitive article instead of indefinite, and i got the entire question wrong, about 8 marks. she's a very fun teacher, and explains things pretty well. there is a bit of a language barrior when you ask her a question, she doesnt answer it directly.

La mejora profesora! If you care, and you put some effort and enthusiasm into it, then maybe you'd get something out of it. Honestly, I came out of that program with a second year university credit!
