Mr. Handshue was a great man and teacher, wish he was back at Davidson for my senior year.
He is a great teacher,but only teaches his favorite students and he only recognizes their accomplishments. I got called down to his office a lot that year due to fact that I kept chewing gum.
Mr. Handshue is wrapped up in OMEA. He should be wrapped up in his students. He gave a leader award to the son of Dublin band Dir that didnt help the band. He doesn't foster kids in the band
One of my favorite teachers. He really loves his work. Over the years he has taught me many things about music, but even more about life. Mr. Handshue is a true role model and I am lucky to know him.
Mr. Handshue has a passion for music and making bands sound as good as possible.
Mr. Handshue works people hard and is pretty intense about it sometimes, but he gets things done and knows what he's talking about. If you can't handle it, it's not his fault.
My favorite!!! He explains things in a way I can really understand, and over the years I've gotten to know him really well. He tries to be fair, and is really passionate about what he does.
I think he and his wife are both very harsh and cold. They both definitely pick their favorite students and not good teachers for middle and high school levels. Mr. Handshue makes up answers to try to satisfy but I have discovered that he lies. I am very upset about the situation and need to consider the next step. Definitey not a fan!
He's hard to understand sometimes, but if you talk to him he can be cool and really knows what he's doing.
This man teaches you not only the notes on the page, but the REASONS it works like that. His students ARE his children, and even if he does come across as frightening, he isn't.
Mr. Handshue is a very serious man. He demands the best from his students. He can sometimes show poor personal skills but will show you respect if you show respect for him and band
pettiest teacher ever, if you're not a favorite you're screwed and if you life isn't band, good luck. i remember when i loved music...
As much as I've done to him. One day. I went into his office crying and saying I hated band. He told be he didn't need me and I coulg quit if I wanted. What a nice, nice man.
There is quite an intimidation factor with Mr. H, but you just have to respect what he's done. If you make an effort to care, he is good at letting you know.
Why handshue, why?? He likes to tell random stories, but generally teachers the students poorly.
We definitely butted heads. We sat down and had a "heart to heart" once where he told me that he didn't like me.
Great During Jazz Band!!! Helpful, and he sometimes tells little side stories...
For once I'm LEARNING something in band! A little mean sense of sarcastic humor, but once you get used to it he rocks!
mr handshue was a sub 4 my 8th grade band class and he was pretty mean. i feel bad for any1 in his class and hes half the reason why im not doing marching band!
I'm not a fan. Getting into WE is about band politics. He is good with brass instruments, wheter or not you like him. Woodwinds...that's an other story.
Mr. H. is so awesome....he may be a little intimidating at times, but it helps us stay focused and on task...u just have to respect him
Mr. Handshue is a nice guy if you are a hardcore bandie. I chose not to do marhcing band or any other extra-curricular band activities and he like hates me.
I find humor in a non-bandie rating Handshue. Anyways, he's not as bad as a lot of people seem to say he is. He's not that bad, unless it's before contest!
mr./mrs. handshue are the worst teachers ever. Mr. H is so biased about things.i think i slept through his band more times than all my classes combined.
This man knows his job and does it incredibly well, he respects every student that respects him and his class.
He is a good teacher when it comes to music, If you have a problem with something he helps fix it. But i do have to admit he is intimidating.
Mr. Handshue knows his subject matter very well, and infact knows a lot more than music. The thing he doesn't know is how to treat his students with respect
Mr. Handshue rocks! He's my favorite teacher and always will be! You'll be lucky to have him!
