I was his student nearly 20 years ago and his class ignited a life-long love affair with history. He has a a way of highlighting not just headline events but the minor happenstance and everyday quirks of fate that have weaved their way into the story of how life on the earth came to be how it is. The dates and names and humdrum testable facts that every student of history comes to resent, somewhere along the way, get into your head without you even being aware you were learning them.

Hes a good teacher that makes class very fun and interesting, keeps you awake and wanting to learn more. but he's not always very clear on when tests are sometimes. this class would be the best class ever for every reason possible, except for the study guide, its ridiculously hard to and for quite a few questions you won't know where to find the answers in the text book because he'l put the wrong pages on where to look which can cause a lot of raging moments when a 3 page chapter takes 4 hours

Von rassler, you have no idea how much this guy will teach you about real life until you leave the last period on the last day and realize how much more you shouldve paid attention in his class. I got an A but honestly i learned more lessons about life than i did history, but he taught us so much. best teacher ive ever had

The smartest man I know. Incredibly knowledgeable and really makes history interesting. He makes you actually want to learn. Only a very few teachers at Leigh High accomplish that. Had him APUSH, which was his last year teaching it. I am truly blessed to have had him. 10/10. Best teacher at the school in my opinion.

Outstanding teacher. Knows exactly what he's talking about and is entertaining. If you work hard and study, you will certainly be rewarded. He may put you on the spot, but that at least improves your ability to retrieve information quickly. Maybe even the best that Leigh has to offer, and is quite a compliment considering the strength history department.

Best teacher! I had him for World sophomore year. He would get on these random topics that had nothing to do with history, but that's what made it all the more entertaining. "Hey look a puppy." LOL

I think he should just stop making all of us students buy "this specific" notebook that every one of us has to buy if we want him to accept our work. Come on, this is a public education.it's free, man
