Fall 2017 - (REVIEW FOR SPANISH 3, NOT 2) Professor Suhr is very average. She definitely wants to see students do well, and is a nice enough lady, but doesn't go above and beyond from a teaching standpoint. She also definitely wants everyone to put the effort in towards getting an A (even though obviously a lot of people take it P/NP), and she will sometimes deliberately grade you down a little bit if you're not putting in what she deems is enough effort. When push comes to shove though, she'll get you through the course in one piece and (unless you REALLY don't try, and make a point of it) she won't fail you.
Fall 2020 - Profesora Suhr is a very open-minded, sweet individual that makes you reflect on yourself and the society we live in. The hardest part of the class is organizing and dedicating time for the organization you want to volunteer at, but other than that it was very straightforward!
Spring 2019 - One of the best professors in UCLA and in the Spanish and Portuguese department with all honesty. Carla Suhr is extremely dedicated, kind, and genuinely wants to see her students succeed. I am so fortunate to have taken this class with her. Although the class is three hours long and can get tiring after a while, it is well worth taking her class and experiencing your service learning with her class. We were given an extra credit opportunity but pretty sure that was just random and not every quarter. Supposedly was worth 5% but was only given 3%, which is unfair considering there was effort required in the actual extra credit.
Fall 2022 - This class requires 50-60 hours of community service in Spanish in the community. Professor Suhr helps you find places where you can work, but this means volunteering 6-8 hours/week, which sometimes can be difficult to manage on a busy schedule. However, I would 100% recommend this class. It is one of the best and coolest classes I've ever taken. Professor Suhr is one of the most kind and passionate teachers I've ever had. She is amazingly intelligent and does an excellent job of passing that spark and curiosity of life to her students. She truly cares about the world and all the volunteer work that we were all doing and it is so evident. Three hour classes are extremely difficult but she did an amazing job of making them entertaining and holding us to high expectations as well. I really appreciated her as a teacher and I feel inspired to go and conquer the world. She gave excellent feedback and made me want to do well in the class, not just to get a good grade, but to actually learn and conquer the material. The class is taught in Spanish and we have to speak in Spanish all the time as well. She was so patient with all of our bad Spanish and did a great job at making us feel comfortable enough to try to speak. I feel so bonded to my fellow classmates and I will remember this class for year to come. I really would recommend Professor Suhr to everyone. This is such a cool class that makes you get involved in the community. The grade includes: the 50-60 hours of service, 3 diaries (written in Spanish), a mid quarter oral presentation on what your service is, weekly response posts, and a final project. The out of class work isn't too bad besides the service hours. The final project includes creating something to help your organization or writing a research paper.
