First you will hate him I guarentee. But as the class progresses you will start to really like him (as a person specially). He gave me a N in 1st mp and 95 in the last because I worked really hard after 1st mp. All he looks for is improvement. And he actually knows a lot and teaches good. One of the best.

At first I hated him because he asked soooo many questions. But then I ended up really liking his teaching method because instead of just handing us the facts and shoving info up our heads to memorize, he actually makes us think critically.

By far one of the most superior teachers in his subject. Mr. Schneider went to COLUMBIA UNIVERSITY. His class is quite challenging but at the end nearly all his ap and regular students to extremely well. He knows what colleges look for. Consider yourself lucky if you have him as a teacher, but be prepared to do work.

He is the best old man teacher you could ever get! He makes you do all kind of reading that develops your understanding of the past! Work hard in his class because he does give a lot of work.

Look past the fact that Mr. Schneider is a tough grader and you'll come to appreciate him for the great teacher that he is. All the effort you spend will pay off; I got a 5 on the AP exam.

SCHNEIDER IS AWESOME! In the beginning I hated him and his teaching style, but after a while he starts to grow on you. I thought I'd get a 2 but I got a 5! Just do his work and participate in class!!!

This is the best teacher I've ever had in my whole life!!! He's amazing. He knows all there is to know about history and unlike most teachers he teaches the material with passion and connects every single thing you learn as if history is all one story line. He made me ADORE Histoy. Never in my life have I learned as much from any other class or person. He's so concerned, and witty, and adorable at the same time. He jumps around the classroom with enthusiasm and leaves a 100 fingerprints on the board. =]
