I had him 3 yrs ago and didn't really like him. He was fair, but he didn't teach well. Canata and Eberle were so much better!

Gelpke's jokes are never funny; he's the only one that ever laughs. And, besides being self-absorbed and pompous, he's also jus plain weird!

we recently saw Oliver, taking a look at child labor. If you saw the amount of homework he gave us today, it would be clear to you that he is the child laboreer.
hes a great teacher, and a cool guy

Mr. Gelpke is soo cool! So he may be a little full of himself but who cares he makes boring stuff fun! Which is a quality many teachers dont have! But his tests are really hard study your notes and worksheets and remember people! Or It might not be easy!

Not the easiest class in the world, but when it comes to cool teachers, it doesn't get much better. He likes the Mets and tries to be funny, doesn't get much better than that.
