He is the chillest teacher I've ever had. I learned close to nothing about world history though, because his class is more about coloring than history. The experience was fun and it was the easiest A I have ever gotten.

hands down my favorite teacher ever at ST, he is super funny and has easy work, but through repetition he gets the facts in your brain and believe it or not you come out with a lot of new information. Hes a great guy and he should honestly get some type of award.

Mr. Lum is probably one of the best teachers I have had. He makes sure that every lesson is do-able for every student in the class. As long as you don't disrespect him, he will treat you like you are his own child and will give you a good laugh along the way. Family is everything to him and he doesn't give homework because he says that it is "Family time". He is incredibly sweet and does a very great job at explaining activities.

Mr. Lum is probably the only teacher at ST that actually cares about his students. And the only teacher who realizes that high school students will not just GIVE you their respect, he has to earn it. Which he does. He makes you feel like one of his own kids and he's the sweetest teacher ever. I think he's fantastic and I have him for World History. Yeah we don't really learn that much.. But history doesnt really matter later in life anyways. :)

My favorite teacher of all time. He is amazing! I had him for World History and now I have him again this year for Psychology! He really cares about his students, and you DO learn! If you didn't learn anything then you must not have paid any attention.

Lum is probably one of the nicest, coolest, and best teacher you'd ever meet. I was never in his class, but I got to know him very well anyways because I was in CSF (best club ever by the way, Join Up!).

he is without a doubt the BEST teacher at ST. He is very funny, he likes to cracks jokes and stuff like that, and he is very laid back. he wont get mad at you the first time, or the second, he'll smile and tell you to do your work. hes very good to talk to, and he does have very good things to say. he is a big sports fan, so talk to him about that. PLEASE do not take his kindness for granted, there arent many like him
