I went to Mr. Simpson's classes more than 10 years ago, and I still vividly remember the perfect balance he had found between providing useful information and keeping students engaged through in the classes he taught. I didn't even like history but, due to his reputation, I took an AP history class with him and actually found it very engaging. Naturally, I made a point of taking the other class he taught later on, AP Psychology.

Mr. Simpson, is this man myth or is he legend? Sometimes I believe this guy trudges down from the depths of P-town, puts on nice clothing (over compensation?) and sneaks into Edina high school before administration is around to teach kids in a tucked away classroom at Edina High School. Mr. Simpson is an exceptional man. If it wasnt for his superb teaching, Edina would have thrown him out many years ago or at least would have upgraded their security system. He is the best teacher I had.

Mr. Simpson is ahead of the curve. Any TV hosts, any internet personalities, they're all behind him when it comes to maintaining an engaging character. He's as magical as Miss Frizzle, more explanatory than Bill Nye and as wise as Sagan.

Loved AP psych with him. I ended up loving the topic and loved the teacher so much I requested him for APUSH. This teacher made me laugh so hard I thought I might die. There's almost no need to ask him questions because he explains the material so well, but do not hesitate to ask him questions. He's so knowledgeable that you'll get a great answer every time. Love love love this teacher. He really cares about your knowledge gained, not just getting his paycheck, and not just you getting and A.

Absolutely wonderful teacher. He is quite entertaining and can make any lecture great - even if it's about the first US bank. He makes jokes all the time which help reinforce the material which makes the class so much easier

Mr. Simpson is amazing. Typically, APUSH is not the most fun class to take but with Mr. Simpson you will have a blast. He is super engaging which helps because you take notes everyday during class but his notes are awsome.
