There's a difference between being a good person and being a good teacher. The grading criteria is so unclear, I had to work so ridiculously hard on this class only for her to give lack-luster feedback on projects. Would not recommend to anyone.

Professor Santiago knows what she's talking about. I took intermediate Spanish with her and she is a very kind and caring professor. She wants you to succeed and will make sure you're participating and understanding concepts. If you do the homework you can pass no problem. She is always available for office hours and any other time to meet. 10/10!

Dr. Stommes is a great Spanish professor. This class only had two tests that were a big part of the final grade, but the rest of the class was enjoyable. Participation is a big deal in Stommes's classes!

Profe is one of the best teachers that I've had a Creighton. I look forward to her classes every week. She loves what she does and expects a lot from her students. I came out of the class a WAYYYY better speaker. She is very funny and keeps the class interesting. As long as you have a solid understanding of the language you'll be good

Amazing teacher. Loves what she does and wants her students to improve. Somewhat challenging if you don't have a solid understanding of Spanish, however you will learn a TON in her class. Very funny woman; gives tough love sometimes but work hard and you won't have a problem.

This is overall one of my favorite classes. She's very clear about what she expects of her students, and she's hilarious in class (lots of references to things college kids think are funny). My only complaint is she doesn't give her students any room to argue over answers bc even if she messes up grading on a quiz, she won't give you points back.

Toughest Spanish class i've ever taken and I have been taking classes for 9 years. She expects a lot from students, so if you're looking for an easy A - look elsewhere. If you show up and study for quizzes, you will be just fine. She reminds us that she is also teaching us to be successful - which is so true. Great person and wonderful prof!

Profe Stommes expects a lot from her students. A LOT. This class is VERY difficult. Spanish is a class where you learn from your mistakes, but Profe Stommes grades everything with no exceptions, and your grade may evidently suffer. However, she is a great person and I hope I got more out of this class than I think, but my grade did not reflect that

Hands down the best Spanish teacher I've had in over 5 years of taking the language. She's a hoot and she doesn't take things too seriously but genuinely wants her students to improve. She uses English sometimes but you'll still learn a ton of Español and get lots of practice from reading and speaking.

Profe is super nice and hilarious. She talks mostly in a mixture of Spanish and English but her accent is easy to understand. Lots of reading for the class and her tests are very challenging. Need to study a lot to do well. She teaches the language really well and I really feel like my Spanish improved a lot. Take her if you want to learn.

Profe is the best! She really wants you to take much more than just Spanish out of the class. She's a wonderful and vibrant woman who expects a lot out of you, but in the end it will all pay off.

This professor has been one of my favorites here at Creighton. She teaches well and will do anything to help her students. Also, she is hilarious! Fun fact: she is from Puerto Rico. She is also great to talk with outside of class. If you get the chance, TAKE HER.

I took Ivé for 311, 312, and 425. She can be tough on tests, but she is really entertaining in class and definitely worth taking.

She definitely has spunk, and you will get a lot out of any class you take with her. Her grading can be sporadic and the classes are not easy. I'd definitely recommend taking her for any Spanish class, but don't expect to get a good grade w/o working hard.

Such a great teacher! It's not an easy class, but she is very clear about what material will be on the tests. I loved going to this class because she speaks in "Spanglish" and tells great stories. Very knowledgeable and will help you outside of class. Take her!

Shes a good teacher, and so much fun to have in class. Very high energy and really cares about her students. Overall the class is pretty hard. No freebees with grammar, and vocab on tests is pretty challenging. Overall a really fun teacher.

Amazing teacher. I learned more in one semester with her than I did in 4 years of high school Spanish!! She is a bit sassy sometimes but she tells really interesting relating to Hispanic culture. Definitely take her class!!
