i really liked her, but her enthusiasm for the subject can be scary. she is a great teacher, who really cares about her students. she does have an accent, but it is easy to understand her, she is open to making appointments outside of office hours. the most important part of your grade will be the 3 essays she assigns (30%), so make sure to do well on those. the midterm is really easy, just do all the hw and memorize the key terms that she assigns. overall, if you just pay attention, you should do fine. one complaint that i do have about her is that the way she grades is not even. if she feels/senses that your spanish is really good, she will place more importance on the content than the grammar. still, i highly recommend her.
