Mr. Colfer is an incredibly nice guy who is really easy to talk to, and he knows EVERYTHING there is to know about history. He walked into my WWII history class (which he does not teach) and answered every single question that was asked, even though the students who had just read about it had no idea what the answers were. His quick, witty humor somehow makes hour-long lectures tolerable, and without his class, freshman year would have been completely unbearable. Thank you Mr. Colfer.

One of if not the best teacher I have ever had. He is extremely knowledgeable on seemingly everything and is always available for extra help. Also really funny and nice guy, but does not appreciate stupid jokes. If possible, I would have him teach every class, as you can probably tell, I highly recommend taking any of his classes.

I had Mr. Colfer for two years, and he was easily one of the most helpful and straightforward teachers I ever had. All expectations and directions are explicitly stated, and he really does teach you the material. He's also very funny and a great guy too. I'd definitely recommend him, as he is mandatory to have.

I've always been terrible at history, but Mr. Colfer made me LOVE it anyway. Take his class seriously and don't joke around. STUDY for the tests too! Make a good impression on him, and try to talk to him after school for even the smallest clarification of a question. It makes all the difference.
