This was my favorite class this past year. I liked the video lectures, group projects, and many interesting assignments. It was great to have the opportunity to do extra credit assignments and test corrections. He cares about his students and wants them to do well in the class. It's a lot of work, but you learn a lot.

APES was my favorite class this past year. Mr. Ledgerwood requires many interesting assignments and group projects. I liked learning from his video lectures. The opportunity to do test corrections offers a great way to learn from mistakes. He really cares about his students.

He's one of my favorite teachers at Gunn! He gives video lectures for homework in APES and allows test corrections so that students can actually learn from the challenging tests and quizzes. He mixes things up and gives a wide variety of projects, labs, presentations, hw assignments, and tests in APES. He has perfected this class and really knows what he is doing.

He knows his stuff and tries to make the class fun, but for a high school Chem class that's not enough. He's unorganized, hard to ask for help from, unclear in his lectures and directions, and he picks favorites

He is not exactly a bad teacher. He tries to make you figure stuff out on labs, so that you understand it better, and then explains it. He does not just give lectures. You can always go after school.

Way too stressed out that he doesn't have time or can't make the effort to help us. Doesn't grade our assignments himself and then gets shirty when we point out inaccuracies. Nice guy. Bad teacher.

Mr.Ledgerwood is one of the best science teachers. He brings an interesting, humorous approach to teaching. His classes are interesting but challenging due to the course material.
