He chose favorites whom he USED to get him lunch, do random tasks, and gossiped with. He brings too much of her personal life into the classroom which is EXTREMELY inappropriate. A teach should be an example, not showing 14-18 year olds that it's okay to act out of line. Granted, he brought great things to upping the caliber of the band, he was VERY inappropriate and played favorites. Students should be graded and seats upon how they play, not how much they suck up to him.
Libertyville High School band director Jeffrey T. Daeschler has been on paid administrative leave since November 2012, District 128 officials have confirmed.
But district officials won't say why, citing legal privacy concerns
At first I really disliked Daeschler. He seemed to pick on me and bully me a lot, but then I auditioned for an Honor Band, and I made the Wind Ensemble as a Freshman! I realized that he was only "mean" to me because he wanted me to move up. And yeah, he does play favorites, is a little harsh, and can sometimes be a little impatient, but before you go hating on him, just know that he does it for the better of the band. He knows a lot about music and I really respect him.
told his favorite to post something nice about him lol (see below)<- something D would tell his favorite lol
He is not a nice person. He definately plays favorites and he likes to insult students in front of the class. I think it is a little disturbing when a man spends so much time with his students in his office and has them go on special trips to the cafeteria to bring him food. He is not a good person and he should not be a teacher.
He brings his personal life into the classroom. Which i do not agree with.
Doesn't care about the children he only cares about his favorites.
The soon to be "Dr D" is a semi-unproductive band director who keeps life interesting. He has done a lot of good for the band. He picks out songs that are boring and/or not fun (both to play and to listen to.) He can be awkward to be around sometimes
Mr. D always demands the best because he knows his students are capable of being so. He was my biggest inspiration to continue with music in college.
Mr. Daeschler sould not be allowed around students espicially females. He has them sit in his office all day long. He would write certain ones passes out of all their classes just so they could spend time with him. That isent right at all.
From my perspective, he seems like a very Stubborn instr- uctor.I met him once and gave me the impression that he can't be taken serious. i have no clue if he enjoys teaching kids. YOU!
He is a good instructor, but I wouldn't let me child become "friends" with their Band teacher!!!
I would advise all students to use caution with Mr. Daeschler!I always felt somewhat uncomfortable around him, I'm not sure why. Maybe he just seemed a little too friendly with certain students.
I think Mr. Daeschler was a great teacher. He helped me grow as a music student, and he picks great songs to play! As long as you practice (like home work) you do fine in his class. Most people who complain don't put in the time to earn a good grade.
From the year my son was a freshman with Mr. Vaccerello to his senior year with Jeff there has been enormous and countless improvements to the band. That says enough about Jeff, he is wonderful.
Anyone who thinks Mr Daeschler does not know what he is doing probably thinks such because they themselves are dim-witted when it comes to band.
his marching band staff are just as bad as him, they are all college buddies and think they are the best. if they were they wouldnt have such crappy jobs as band directors, they would've been professional musicians.
I honestly cannot stand Daeschler. He plays total favorites, and if your not in marching band, then forget it! Also, he is like best friends with students, I dont know about you, but thats kind of wierd.
My best teacher so far, but it's only my 1st year at Stagg. Helped me get motivated in History!
he made band fun! even though i was last sax. and then second before last saxophone but thats ok. i hope i made him proud! i joined marching band at (H.C)
He made band a cool, fun thing to do again. Sometimes marching rehearsals can be taxing, but it is all worth the ahrd work.
I wish Mr. Deaschler would spend more time out working with us during marching rehearsals.
Done amazing things with the band, puts his all into the program, amiable, fun,works us hard, very good with handling punishment,not perfect but very very good.
Awesome marching band director with a lot of enthusiasm. He's a bit harsh with punichments when he gets impatient, but its for the good of the band! :)
