Definitely one of the coolest people ever. He has a unique teaching style in which you have a lot of free time to get work done. If you need help he will always be there. He's also the smartest guy I know, and if you have him for world history, consider yourself blessed.

Early in the year I would've rated him poorly. His class is not easy by any stretch of the imagination but if you study and do the work you can do well. He prepares you for high school and makes other classes easier. Also a very good guy (though he is shy). He cares about what he's talking about and puts it in normal terms. Really good teacher.

Obetts is a great teacher, but if you got a D on the first Exam like I did, GO TO THE REVIEW SESSIONS. Overall it was a fun, chill class, which is easy enough if you work hard, do the assignments, and read the readings thoroughly. :)

I had him last year and he's honestly a great teacher. Our classroom was the probably the worst class ever, but he still stuck with us and taught us the material we needed to know for our tests and finals. He's polite, funny and even though he's shy, he's really a great teacher.

Amazing teacher. Really knows his stuff. He is chill and wants you to do well. I'd you have trouble hearing even a little, you might want to sit up front because he is quite quiet. As long as you do the assignments and stay organised and study profusely and go to the after school review sessions , you will do fine. Hope this helps and you have a great year.

Beaubetts is literally the greatest teacher in the entirety of Yorktown. He gives us worksheets at the start so you already have your goal for the end of class (However if you are a lazy person you can just do it later.) He talks with his students and does what a teacher always tries to, make the subject interesting, he's a great teacher but an even better man. Obetts u my fam

Wiedemann and Obetts block is really chill. Most days he gives us a worksheet at the top of class and if you use class time and probably a little at home you can get it done. He doesn't really teach much, just gives us worksheets. The readings are pretty hard tho. Make sure to do the study guides because theyre identical to the tests. At the beginning of the year go to the review sessions bc he gives you all the answers for the study guide but after 2nd quarter you have to do on your own.

Lots of worksheets that you do outside of class. If you use your time in class well it won't be a problem. Tests for the most part aren't horrible. Usually you can choose 3 out of five questions to do if you aren't sure of something. The study guides are very helpful. Take good in class notes.

may I just say he is THE BEST history teacher, end of story. actually it's not the end of the story because his teaching method is unique, and far better than the history teacher I had last year. I hope we have another fiesta friday. IMPORTANT: you only fail his class because you don't try, so try your best, this guy is a BEAST too. and his beard makes him look like a BOSS

This guy made my freshman year awesome. Yeah, it was a hard class, but he made it very interesting, none of that droning on most history teachers do. A lot of us got very bad grades on tests and essays but when we asked for help, he definitely stepped up and held study sessions and allowed us test and essay corrections and was overall really nice!

He's a good teacher and teaches you everything you need to know for the test. You get a better grade on papers if you turn in a rough draft and follow his recommendations. However, his handwriting is often really hard to read.

Mr. Obetts all around is a pretty happy guy, but when it comes to his tests AND his worksheets, you better be counting on your natural ability to learn for yourself, because this teacher doesn't do the best job of explaining and helping his students. If you were to take Mr. Obetts out of the classroom and chat with him im sure you would find much pleasure in doing this, but once you have entered his class you would tend to notice his lack of clarity and lazyness.

Beau/Bo/Charles Obetts/Jesus H christ/Evil Forest/Boba Fett/Dr Awesome is the best teacher I have ever had. He taught much more stuff than was on the curriculum and did not make us to do socratic seminars. The hardest assignments he gave were essays. They weren't boring AP history like stuff either, they were interesting and made you think, like the butterfly effect essay where you would start with an event sometime in the last millenium and write all of the effects it had up until present day. 12345678
