Professor Sherno is one of the few professors that is down to earth. Her 151A class contains interesting reads, and she makes the material come to life through her lectures.

She is a great speaker! The class was usually around one and a half hours, and yet you remain awake the whole time!! she taught interesting material and was really concerned about your learning and was easily approachable.

Great professor. She runs a tough but fair class. It's four quizzes and four essays for your grades. She does good quiz prep and you get to do 2 rough drafts before you turn in your essays. Her classes are fun and interesting and she always loves to poke fun at herself and the class to lighten up the mood. Fun lady, relates well to students, great teacher all around.

Professor Sherno will ALWAYS be there when you need ANY kind of help. She listens, gives great pointers when it comes to writing papers. I always felt welcomed during her office hours and her classes. She may be picky about papers but if you go and see her before something is due, she will gladly help. She lectures a lot, her exams for 105 are fair, for 119 B they're tricky and maybe even difficult, and she usually always has take home exams. She doesn't call on anyone but does like participation. I recommend her over any other professor.

Prof. Sherno is a great profesora. The first day of class I was about to drop it because the material did not seem interesting but I am glad I did not. Sherno make the two hours go by rather quickly and without the extreme boredom you must endure in other classes. She is very funny and makes you feel comfortable in the classroom and welcomes you to talk to her.
Grading breakdown: Oral group presentation 10%, participation 15%, midterm (take-home) 20%, final 25%, final paper 30%
I'd def. recommend a class with Sherno

Profesora Sherno is a great teacher. Her method of teaching is wonderful since she herself is not a native spanish speaker she understands and relates well with those who are not native spanish speakers. She grades based on your work and your effort in the class and if you ask her for help she'll do her best to help you improve your grammar.

I highly recommend Professor Sherno to anyone whose major is Spanish. She is wonderful. I always felt very welcome in seeking help inside and outside of the class. She also gave me the inspiration of how to establish my self-esteem, the different points of views of the world. I learned a lot not just from the texts or her teaching in class, but the warmth she had given me as well. She encouraged me to ask questions which I used to think were silly and stupid and I would not dare to ask. Take her class, then you will see what I say is true!

Professor Sherno is by far one of the best professors I have had in four years at UCLA in any department

Prof. Sherno is just the salt of the earth. What a class act! She's wonderful lecturer and always chooses reading that are worthwhile and memorable. I hope that she gets promoted because she really deserves it.

Prof Sherno is awesome. She is really concerned about whether students learn in her class. She also does a great job explaining things in both English and Spanish. She also has a great sense of humor. Take 119B, 151, or 105 with her!
