He's very nice, down to earth, and warm hearted. The people complaining are the lazy failures who will never succeed in life.

He needs to stop touching people!!! I kind of feel sorry for him. People make fun of him and he doesn't even know it. He doesn't really explain anything. His jokes are not funny, and he knows it.

Schlatter was my favorite teacher for 2005-2006, he did a lot of funny things. He was a good teacher and if you did your homework and studied for tests there is no way you should get a D or below.

Schlatter is easy if you do the homework. He's boring because he moves slowly, but he's not that bad. He does have to stop touching people though.

He talks too much and too slow without saying anything. He needs to learn when to stop talking and start teaching. I think he secretly likes making people feel stupid.

I don't hate Schlatter, but a lot of the stuff he teaches isn't in the text, and he wonders why the class doesnt do well on tests!

He needs to listen to what his students are saying, because sometimes people ask him to teach them a little differnt. He doesn't even think about it.

Mr. Schlatter needs help. I mean-he spends more time explaing the definition of words-then he does explaining the actual work. 1st period-2002/2003 school year.

He's cool. You just need to be more open minded about what the class work he's giving and its a little easier. His corny jokes make us laugh at him and not with

you should start to explain things to the students before you assign the work. you confuse the heck out of us and you make very dumb jokes. 3rd period.

I can tell he doesn't want us to fail. But sometimes it gets frustrating when he talks about one problem for 43 minutes and does the other four in 2 minutes.

He cares and he teaches well which is good, BUT sometimes he treats us like we're slow and spends 45 mins teaching what a def. is instead of the important stuff. Then you get the tests where its so freaking confusing and its nothing like what he taught!

I had Schlatter last year for Geomtery. Why does every classwork have to be worth points? How bout for a change in actually teaching a lesson for once and not relying on weekly hw to do your job?
