It's going to be so weird when I graduate and don't see this guy everyday. There is a reason that the German program at the school is so great, and it is because of this guy. He has had such a positive impact on my life and I will always remember the little things that I experienced in that class. Look beyond the grade and GPA : Herr Gwin has had such a huge impact on your life, if you've had him.
Mr. Gwin was my teacher from 1992 to 1996. More than any other teacher, he made the subject (German) vibrant and alive, and influenced my entire worldview. I remember him fondly.
Herr Gwin is an interesting character to say the least. I have survived all the way to AP German with him. Sometimes he makes me want to rip my hair out and drop out of school entirely. Other times I love sitting in his class, having a casual conversation with him and my classmates. There are times where I have laughed so hard I cried. If you take his class be prepared to feel bi-polar, laugh till your stomach hurts, and learn a lot about German culture while learning nothing about Grammar.
you will learn with this man.
German is a difficult language to learn ... and trust me there are teachers which have still difficulties and are not perfect. However, Herr Gwin makes his students belief that he is a super hero. - From my point of view a quite strange person and a difficult character to be handled with care!
Herr Gwin takes it upon himself to confuse, mislead, and even at times shame all of the students he doesn't like. I, being one of his least favorite students, recommend considering another world language at Haddonfield Memorial High School unless you have extremely well developed German skills. You would be better off starting a brand new language than facing one of the worst experiences i have had in high school so far.
Love Herr Gwin, such a bro
The best teacher I have ever had
Herr Gwin is an awesome German teacher, but he is so spread out with clubs and sports that his classroom behavior is bi-polar to say the least. He is still one of the best teachers in the school and is compassionate when helping struggling students.
Herr Gwin is a great teacher; however, he sometimes forgets that his students are not adults. He has a good sense of humor and expects you to focus on his class respect his lessons. He is very inconsistent with difficulty and clarity, but is one of the best German teachers in the state.
one of the most compassionate and selfless teachers in the entire highschool. He maybe be busy with a lot of things, but he still really cares about his students, and getting them to think.
he seriously is the best teacher i think i have ever had. i would trust him with anything and i think i could talk to him about anything. he is kind and all his teacing methods are contemperory.
Im in german four with him, hes one of the best teachers Ive ever had. Very contemporary studies/topics. Hes nationally known for german teaching, I think hes worth his salt.
awesome teacher. makes you think, teaches you so much. accepts nothing but the best.
He has a wonderful teaching style---a great guy to make you think and ask questions. He can teach you alot of things to take with you outside the classroom. Great & entertaining class!
most wonderful teacher of my life. if you have a chance, take his classes. it's so so worth it.
Best World Language Teacher, and could be the best teacher I've ever had period.
Without a doubt the best teacher in the school. He's one a few men who care more about LEARNING and less about the grades. The man has changed the way I think.
best teacher i have ever had. ever. seriously. he's the best.
wonderful! one of- if not the- best teacher in the school. If you want to or not... he makes forces his students to think.. which is what teaching is all about!
Nice guy. Gets mad, but for good reason, our class doesnt like to pay attention
He is the best teacher in the school- he has changed my attitude to languages...even though i was intimidated by all the German speaking at first
herr gwin is the man, tried and true. if you don't have him then i don't blame you for not getting him but really, he is amazing
Good guy once you get to know him, and when you do, he's got a great personality. Much more of a worldly view than a lot of other teachers at HMHS.
I think that Gwin is the best teacher I have ever met.He has opens people up to new ideas and teaches to accept others.Talk to him before you judge him.
