Excellent teacher! Really made that extra effort to connect with students. He was very passionate about his specialty and that is really amazing. I'm not a big history fan, but he made it all the more enjoyable :)

Mr. Sawatzky's teaching style is what makes him exceptionally. It is what makes him unique. He is one of my favorite teachers and due to his certain style of teaching which I greatly appreciate, I understand everything he teaches. His concepts are very clear and it is very easy for him to pass/share his knowledge with other. Great teacher!

he is a very good teacher, he is also very funny and class is very fun, mostly when u are in his second period, but he doesn't say things really clearly and our class usually has questions about homework, I don't like how if something I didn't do he would just stare at me and say u know it don't lie to me or something like that, but otherwise than that he may be the funniest and best teacher you ever known. also he has a doll and treats it like it is real, in teamwork times he would talk to it

My name is Robert, and I'm glad to be the 100th review because Mr. Sawatzky is the best history teacher in the whole US. There is no other way to put it, as he teaches well and making the environment enjoyable at the same time. He deserves more awards and I hope he forever continues to teach at Rocky Run.
