Not a bad guy at all, if you are respectful he is respectful back. he just takes a lot of heat beause his class is so hard. Took excersize science and I got a B+ but it was very difficult. It was annoying that I had to try in gym but he is kind of nice

He is the worst teacher who everybody, even the teacher, dislike him because of his rudeness. The mind and body class I had to take in gym was a bunch of garbage that is just common sense. Worst teacher I've had,

Take his summer class - it was not bad at all! I think I moved more in the 2 hours (we actually wanted to play soccer) than in an entire quarter in gym. Give the guy a break he is not all that bad.

He's not a bad gym teacher. He can get really intense about his class so as long as you are quiet, listen to him and not talk back,and put some effort in you will do fine. I am athletically inept and I have an A in the class right now

Coach Shamas is the best!!! He makes sure we dominate our days at gym class!! As long as you are respectful you will get an A, just make sure you don't act annoyed by having to move a little. And try for the mile or else he gets mad...GREAT GUY!!! Hillarious gym teacher and is very flexible as long as the class is engaged!!

Takes P.E. way too seriously and spends a good portion of the class giving empowerment lectures every single day. Immediately singles you out for one side conversation while waiting in line. The good thing is that he grades based on improvement and not actual scores.

I don't think he is even that bad. He is far in grading, cares about your grades, and is nice to you if you are nice to him. I think he is a pretty good gym teacher, even if his jokes are not that great.
