Mr Hjelmgren is one of my favorite teachers. He makes class very enjoyable and I have not only learned a lot about history in his class but have grown as a student. Mr Hjelmgren is a challenging teacher with high expectations for a level 3 class, but if you put forth a lot of effort and always correct homework assignments(he offers corrections for all HW) then an A is possible. Mr Hjelmgren is not only a great teacher but a great guy. He is so funny and kind and I really enjoy talking with him!
Mr. Hjelmgren is, hands down, the best history teacher I ever had. Although there is quite a bit of writing assigned as homework, he truly makes an effort to explain topics thoroughly and make sure the class understands not only what happened, but why. If you think critically in his class, you will do well.
The "Hjelmgren specials pop quizzes" made me laugh every time. My favorite freshman year teacher.
Mr. H is a great teacher who, among other things plays games, leads insightful in-class discussions, incorporates current events into class, and gives knowledgeable homework assignments.
Harsh tests and projects although the homework is straightforward. He tries to make himself seem more worldly than he really is.
Very nice. Although he gave quite a bit of homework and his tests were hard. He needs to make sure that all his students are understanding the material he is breezing through.
Okay teacher and nice guy but didn't make you understand the material and didn't incorporate anything into his lesson plans like most good teachers do!
good teacher... if you try in his class your almost guaranteed an A
he is a great bowling coach and he has an awsome personality, i have heard he is a hard advisor, but he means no wrong!
he's the greatest teacher i've ever had...hes so chill and laid back, but the projects SUCKED. i've never worked so much and learned so little in my life. Amazing guy though...wrote my college recs!
I learned more in 8th grade U.S. history than I am now, he rushes through key points in histoy just to make time for his DVD project, for the civil war we covered it with a movie, good teaching.....
David is a great guy but his two civics and DVD projects really take away from our main course of U.S. history it is unfair that we have to fly through important parts of history to do these projects
Hjelmgren is a nice guy and all, I just don't think he's that great of a teacher. Class moves really fast, he doesn't explain things, and pretty much lets the kids teach the class for him, and with the kids in your class, this isn't exactly a good thing.
Class with him may be good, but watch out if you have him as an adviser. He is ridiculously vapid and a totalitarian advisor. He is super strict. Sorry if you have him.
His us history class is kinda boring but hes a really nice guy!
i liked his class a lot, and his jokes, although bad, made the class more entertaining. he was my favorite teacher freshman year by far.
Dont be alarmed by his high expectations and difficult class. Hjelms challenges you, but he's a great guy. One of my favorite classes, but expect a lot of work.
Pretty awesome teacher but sometimes his class goes a little fast. His world history is a little difficult. I wouldn't say he's the BEST teacher, because that's Mr. Effin' WUKAS!!!
No one more suave. Coolest cat ever. Class is totally reasonable and fun, and he's always available for help. He gives out food too, which rules.
he isn't clear. he isn't helpful. he made me feel stupid. the only reason i got a decent grade was because my friends helped me and i taught myself.
I think he was one of the best teachers I had...hard grader though.
Dont know himas a teacher, but he is the best adviser
He's the best! He makes class fun, and he's an all around cool guy. This class has been fun cuz of him- I love you Hjelms!!!
Cool guy, cool class. Always available for help outside class. UNDERLINE YOUR THESIS!!!!
He is the coolest teacher ever. He always makes up words and says funny stories about his trips to foreign countries. He is one cool cat.
chill people! i love hjelms, and his whole 'thinks he's fifteen' thing is what makes him so funny! rock on with the self-high fives, hjelms
i love hjelms so much! he is the BEST teacher at NT! l
Hay cmon people, he is a hard teacher but one of the coolest ones at new trier. Yea, he does go by the book a lot but hey, he's a funny guy
anyone who has a good sense of humor knows he is hilarious. he's an interesting teacher and often has creative lesson plans.
He is a really cool teacher and he is really easy going.
thinks he's really cool and funny, but he's not. teaching career would be over if he didn't have that textbook.
Thought he was allright..now, tries to be cool & I'm not learning much. Goes by the book too much, not one of my favorite classes
tries to act like he is fifteen. gives himself too many self-high fives. Cool, dawg, etc. not for a thirty year old teacher.
