I liked him as a guy, but oh dante he could not teach. He liked fishing and caving though, I guess.
Great teacher. He's very knowledged about biology and always has the answer. He also expects you to actually have some responsibility and not just whine. Too bad he's retiring.
I love Mr. Hertzler! He knows SO much about biology and is very skilled at teaching. His class is challenging but very rewarding. If you work hard you will succeed.
He's difficult to work with... and the weekly vocab assignments were maddening.
Mr Hertzler grades differently depending on the type of project his student is doing and expects professional grade projects from students doing honors.
I feel bad for anyone who has had or currently has Hertzler. Science Fair (recently stardized) is horrid, I'm glad that I am not going to have to do it again.
biology is totally abstract and sometimes arbitrary. This dept. head knows what he's doing, however, and tries to make it fun.
