Mr. Isberg is retiring this year, and admittedly, he was not always the most engaging or challenging teacher. He does have a really good heart though. You can tell he loves what he does, and even though his courses may require self-study, I felt as though I took a lot from it.

He's pretty cool and all and he understands the subject he is teaching, but really struggles with explaining or demonstrating it clearly and concisely. Rambles on a lot. Seems like the kind of kid that's lonely and was picked on a lot, so sympathy points for him, I guess.

He is better as a Santa Claus model than a teacher.

As a freshman, I couldn't stand him. Somehow I managed to end up in his bio class for English learners, which he didn't seem to care too much about. To him, it seemed, the class was just another job to get over with to coach his swim team. From what I hear, he's actually quite an exceptional coach. Then again, I'm reviewing him for his terribly-conducted bio class. In retrospect, I feel bad for him. But as a sophomore in college, I have yet to meet a worse teacher than poor Mr. Isberg.

His class is super easy, but you don't really learn anything clearly. He's nice and I swam for him, he loves his team too much

i've never had him as a teacher, but i've swam with him for years. Likes to ramble about some Scott Semacello...or someone like that. Deserves more credit than he recieves because he really does try.

SO strange, but he was really interesting. Gave a LOT of extra credit, which helped students that were falling back. Since he's the swimming coach, he knows how to yell, but he's pretty nice.

He's a misunderstood guy - his class is simple once you get how he teaches, and realize that he gives you the answer most of the time. Just ask if he's not clear,but you might be stuck for a few min.

Instead of actually teaching us, he pretty much just makes you copy the book and then tests you. Not a very good teacher, and often gives you a random video to watch if hes "tired" or something.

Unlike some teachers, he teaches us, or in some cases, TRIES to teach us. He's pretty shy and rather carefree. and if you do well and be good, he doesnt watch you as much. *sleeps*

There are a lot of bad things said about Mr. I but every teacher has flaws. His style of teaching is different. I know his methods are boring but effectual

He is a really good teacher at all levels. The only exception is he sometimes doesn't answer your question when ask because he is doing something else.

He's so boring, but the way to pass his class is to jot down whatever he's saying, because he gives you all the answers, but he can totally snap.

I agree. He's boring but he's a decent guy. Every now and then some student feels the need to pick on him. He's alright.
