Best High School coach in the state of Wisconsin. Unlike Pius as a whole he actually cares about his students and players.

People complain about his political views even though he displays tons of evidence for his beliefs. He also constantly points out what he believes and let's you know what is factual. I had him for U.S History, Sociology, and Human Rights And Diversity. He is a man of change. You don't have to agree with his believes but he will make sure you take something away from his lessons and leave you with the will to make a change. He is an outstanding teacher, very funny, and genuinely cares about kids.

Mr. Claassen was one of the most interesting teachers at Pius! I don't understand why he has a bad rating. He is funny, nice, and very smart. His personality may not suit everyone, but for me, he was a good match.

Joel is an awesome teacher. He does go off topic, and talks a lot about politics. When you are in his class you learn a lot of facts about what you are studing. Overall he is a great teacher.

Mr. Claassen may have strong political views but they are also VERY well supported. Granted, he gets off on tangents more often than not, you actually do learn while in his class.

My Claassen is a very funny teacher. While he is teaching me the 1960's he already has shown a political bias that can get in the way of his teaching. Overall a great teacher to have though!

Where is this guy's evidence for anything he teaches? I didn't take his class to hear about how bad he thinks our president is. His sociology class is ridiculous. I have a feeling that all of the statistics that he gives us are actually what HE THINKS they should be, not actual stats. I can't believe he's teaching at our school. When basketball season rolls around, you can tell he favors his players in class. I can't believe I took this class. It's hard to believe anything this guy says. DONT TAKE SOCIOLOGY

His political views usually dominate the lesson and he ends up ranting for two mods. I feel like he is only half-hearted in teaching, especially when basketball season approaches.
