-Everything in the other reviews is 100% true. The best teacher I've ever had in my entire life, I actually cried at the end of the year. an amazing person, he knows so much about life and teaches you more than just English- I BECAME A BETTER PERSON EVERY DAY FROM BEING IN HIS CLASS. i miss him so much. I will definitely speak about him when I graduate, and anyone who was ever in his class will remember him for the rest of their life
I had him as an English teacher in my 6th grade and he was the best teacher I ever had. He explains English things super clearly, and he is always positive and willing to help students. He doesn't really use textbooks but he taught me with good novels and worksheets. He is very fair in grading scores for homework or tests. He teaches not only English but also life-useful lessons. I totally recommend him as an English, and also PE teacher. He might be one of the best teachers in the world.
Mr. Widen is the best teacher I've had. His lessons were always very clear, engaging, and related to real life. Everyday at school I looked forward to english because of him. I always had a fun time in class and learned very much at the same time
Mr. Widen is honestly the best teacher I've ever had. I got to be in his class for both 6th and 7th grade as well as one year of PE and loved his classes. He is a teacher who you can tell really cares about his students and wants them to be successful. Mr. Widen is very fair and reasonable when it comes to homework and grading. He teaches about more than just English; he incorporates life lessons into his curriculum. He is an absolutely amazing teacher.
He is an amazing English teacher and I totally recommend him. The only thing I don't like about him is that sometimes if nobody raises their hand because they are thinking, he will get really sarcastic and say "OH! So I guess you all want homework tonight!!" or "OH! Maybe I should rethink those participation grades, since none of you find raising your hand to be important!" Mr Widen we love you, but please try to understand that not everybody will know all the answers within .5 seconds.
He has been my favorite teacher since I've had him. He is genuinely a good guy. He cares about his students, has an interesting class that can have fun but stay on topic. He teaches amazingly and I had so much fun in the class!!
Seems to be the only teacher who actually cares about the students. From mr Widen I have not only learned about ELA but life. He is really funny and genuinely kind, doesn't treat us like children, and makes learning fun. He barely assigns homework which is not just to be nice, but because he teaches us what we need to know in class, and doesn't feel the need to make us do work just for the sake of it. His assignments (when there are any) are beneficial and help me learn the subject. 10000 stars!
He is my absolute favorite teacher i have him for 6th grade. Class is very fun but we learn a lot. barely gives homework, very funny. highly recommended.
OK so he is like the greatest English teacher of all time, barely gives homework, super cool guy, does awesome impersenations, and actually rembers what you said to him if you ever talk. Really improved my ELA schools, doesn't really have favs, but when he gets mad watch out cause it is SCARY. Cool stories even if they are a bit fabricated they are still fun. Never uses textbooks. One thing is that you read BOTPC which is really boring but that isn't his fault. Awesome dude
Awesome teacher and almost never gives homework but does a lot in class.
He is now my sixth grade Language arts teacher and I love being in his class. Whenever I can, during tutorial, I go to his classroom and try to help him out as much as I can.
He is a great teacher teacher. He will respect you if you respect him
He is an amazing person
I came in without knowledge, Mr. Widen gave it to me with a fun experience. If you get him, you'll walk out with the best Language Arts knowledge, and learn so much more about survival, history, and life! Overall, best teacher ever
Awesome teacher. Easy A, but you still learn mountains of information. Just read and write, and you'll do fine.
Mr. Widen is a great teacher. His is always willing to help and his teaching ways are genius.
I have loved Mr. Widen and he is really awesome. Although he may be easy, he still teaches a lot for the year. If you are a good student and have an A in his room, that probably means that your skills increased from a 1 to a 10 in writing. He does not use a textbook a lot, but instead he explains, which is much better than reading from a textbook. I have had him both for SWARM and english language arts, and he is awesome. Thank you Mr. Widen! You're a really good language arts and SWARM teacher!
Doesn't use the textbook, but there's no need. He is an amazing teacher. He really got me into English. I absolutely love Swarm, a game he made. Swarm makes sure no kids are "out" for a long time, and I love that. Allows corrections, so you learn.
Mr. widen is a pretty easy teacher. I have him for 7th grade and I like him. Pretty much the only con about him is like if he's talking say about what tonights hw will be he will get off topic and start talking about his experience at a Oingo Boingo concert.
Sorta easy teacher, I have him in 7th grade and he is great, he is one of my FAVE english teachers. The only con about him is he speaks about stuff that are sometimes off topic 0_o
Mr. WidÃ©n you are the most awesomest teacher I ever had. You explain things very well and I think you make an excellent English teacher.
Mr. Widen is overall my favorite teacher. I LOVE SWARM. I hope that you will be my language arts and advicement teacher for the rest of middle shcool.
