This dude can't coach. Can't teach baseball or football. Rockhurst baseball has talent, but talent can only take you so far. Coaching gets you the rest of the way.
This guy sucks
I feel as if Jim gets carried away in things other than history too often. He goes off on tangents about his political viewpoints and sometimes accomplishes nothing in class. If you were taking his exams based purely on note taking, you're going to have a tough time. The fact that he does not make his tests himself is obvious when you ask him a question, he tries to circumvent it every time. not the worst teacher I've had but very far from the best.
He was born to drink beer and watch baseball, not to teach.
Jim Degraw>Jesus. This man is the type of guy that we all want to see on the weekends. If i could bring one teacher with me to a party, it would be Mr. Degraw.
Big Chaw is a very humble man. He prefers Toyota to Ford, but is still a good American. I intend to ask him to be the father of my first-born child
He doesnt know much besides about Steinfeld and Toyota. He only reads off of previoiusly made powerpoints because he is too lazy to study the material ahead of time
He shows passion and energy for the material. Degraw has a love for what he does and it shows in his teaching. Rumor has it that he is thinking of leaving Rockhurst after this year. Huge loss.
Great teacher and loved his class. Knows the material and presents it well. Great discussions. It's your fault if you didn't learn anything.
One of the more popular teachers at the Rock. Middle class background, born and raised in the Dotte. Blue collar background. Kind of rough and tumble man's man. A real dude and we need more like him.
Not the brightest lightbulb. Content from the internet.
He is definitely the worst teacher i've ever had. He is lazy, and extremely dumb.
Easiest class at RHS. I learned more about economics and politics than history though.
one of my favorite teachers. Dry sense of humor. Love his class,so far. His love for the jayhawks is the only negative so far. Tough on the grading but I hear he eases up when baseball season starts.
after further review he was right about the tree claim, some, not all can grow back. I heard he makes this claim with all his classes trying to win money on a sucker bet.
fun class, mostly because of the other guys though, nothing teacher specific. coasted through on an A with minimal work.
wow what can i say...has some of the worst jokes ive ever heard... just dont use any big words (anything over 5 letters) because he is easily confused
degraw is a cool guy and makes class fun with stories about the dot
You're not reading this anyway... Just put 20/20 on it...
cool guy. Glad the pages weren't stuck together in my magazine. that's a plus.
late night dot baksetball really helped you prepare for the student teacher facuality bball game
Maybe if you knew the maTERIAL... NEEDS TO LIGHTEN UP... majorly
You need to make your own notes, instead of having students do it for EC.
PROUD 2 B FROM THE DOTTE strait up but easy class and dont have 2 read or study.
Great class, the impossible quizzes are evened out by the easy tests :)
hes really cool, class is tu hard, and he just comes to school for a few hours
When he doens't know the answer to a ? he says Thats a great ?
i wish there were more teachers that put everything else BEFORE education
He was the best teacher I have ever had. I loved every moment of his class.
