As a person chrisopher shanks is a wonderful human being. I love the guy. But a teacher, he is not. His teaching methods did not work one bit for me. I am usually a good student. But with him, he doesn't teach. He just expects his students to go way out of their way every night and take 3 hours of their day just for his class. And that didn't work for me. He doesn't stop to help students if you fall behind in his class, good luck because chances are you won't catch up.

he's funny, but his class is very difficult and he's lazy. he also forces his opinions on us a lot and if you try to argue with him he'll hate you for it.

My favorite teacher. If it wasnt for his funniness i wouldnt be able to survive in AP. But he makes the class fun, which is the reason for my success.

He is a great teacher. Yeah, he doesn't have an internal censor, but that is what makes this class great. He stayed with kids until 5 if that is what they needed. If you made effort so would he.

Shanks is the best teacher in our school. Guaranteed to make you laugh, and make you understand physics!! Im getting better grades in this AP class than i am in any of my regents classes.

Good man, made a very dull subject comical and interesting. Always very animated and you never know what he is going to say next. Only flaw is sometimes he ends up making things seem more confusing than they actually are. Still he really does try to help out and puts in a lot of effort.

I don't see how people can possibly dislike him or say he's a bad teacher...I learned so much (5 on the AP) and had more fun than in any other class. I miss him already!
