Hilarious. Has the perfect balance of awkward humor that it's hard not to love him.

Why can't all teachers at Newton North teach like Mr. Klem? He is totally awesome and should give seminars to other teachers on how to teach! Very nice guy too.

Mr. Klem is a funny guy and he keeps his class interesting with his personality, but his AP stats class gets extremely repetitive as the year goes on. Nowadays, we mostly just sit there for 55 minutes while he lectures. And while yes, his personality keeps it interesting to some extent, you can't just leave it at that. The amount of times I've had to "call something notes", is getting quite excessive, mainly because it's all class every class. Great guy. great class, starts to get repetitive.

Knew his stuff. Hard tests and hard class. Was helpful some of the time. Does a whole lot of random stuff during class that somehow is supposed to help us learn, but I never ended up learning the stuff unless I did it by myself.

AP class gonna be an AP class lmao. Meaning, this obviously gets a 1 star in the Easy department. However, Mr. Klem was great. He really taught the subjects and stayed at pace with the students. I really liked how he forced us to come meet with him if we got below an 80% on a test...to review the next chapter! That way you are never constantly behind. There was only one thing that I didn't like about him, and that was how he did a lot of random volunteering for us. He picked people to answer.

Good teacher, I can see how he won the awards, but I struggled and he wasn't the *most* helpful. Worth noting I did the homework (and got it right) on a daily basis and participated in class, but after never doing well in the class, I'm not sure if my confidence in math or myself broke first--maybe both. Class ended up bricking my GPA. I'm not saying he isn't a great teacher, but everyone's got their own story.

He is by far one of the best teachers Ive had, there's a reason why he won the teachers award at our school.

make a lot of funny sound effects. he stays too long on units to make sure everything is clear, and that is a tad bit annoying, but he's an extremely good teacher!

A very idealistic teacher. He seems to be very straight laced, but his sense of humor is hillairous. His teaching approach only works for some people
