I had him his first year teaching @ DV. I would turn in a paper & it would be covered w/ red corrections & it was so refreshing! He takes time to grade thoroughly & I left his class a better writer.

He doesn't really help you much if your stuck. And his mood changes constantly. He is a smart guy but I wish he would just teach us some of his ways.

He acted like a little girl in our class. Literally. He was trying to prove something, but I don't think any of us were quite sure what. He is a good teacher

I really like how we go pretty indepth about analysing books, I know it is going to be hard, but so far I am really enjoying it.

On one hand, Mr. Shindell was funny sometimes, but on the other, he was very boring and was kind of a tough grader.

Shindell might have been a good teacher with the regular kids but he can not teach AP! He never prepared us for the AP test and all he did was talk.

Mr. S is a cool guy, but not a great teacher. He spends too much time talking so that everyone falls asleep.

When half of his students are falling asleep or goofing off, YOU'RE DOING SOMETHING WRONG!!! try teaching instead of just telling us what you know....

He is a very good teacher, and a good person. He is fun but at the same time probably the smartest english teacher DV has seen.

Maybe if any of you were actually smart enough to have your own mind, or maybe just smart enough to understand how ignorant he is, like us AP kids ...
