Mr. Zachmann made chemistry real by using stories and lots of good analogies. If you did not do well on a test you always got a second chance. We miss him.
Loved his teaching style and his class was challenging and thought provoking. It is a shame that he is no longer at Hammond.
He's insane! And none of us learned anything in his class!
I didn't like his class when I was in it, but looking back, he is definitely a very good teacher. Teaches his own way and loves it, and despite being very difficult, he gives lots of EC to help us.
He is a great teacher if you are really into chemistry; he teaches like a college professor.He is fair most of the time.If many people were to do bad on a test, he would let students come sat morning.
does not make any sense. rushes through lessons. i don't understand him. i have to learn everything myself.
He's a great teacher who you'll learn a lot from if you do your work and pay attention, but he certainly is not the friendliest guy.
Exceptional teacher. He will encourage ways of thinking that will help you immensely in college and in life. He actually teaches you, and doesn't force you to memorize.
Amazing teacher. Sit near the front. Pay attention. Listen. He will show you a whole new way of thinking. The only problem I had was leaving his class. Lots of ex c is given.
He is an extremely nice guy and very helpful, but he needs to slow down and be clearer when he teaches. PS I'm a former student too
I am writing as a former student at Hammond, and I feel like Mr. Zachman is the best teacher I had in high school. He prepared me very well for college.
He wants people to do their best. He is one of the best teachers at Hammond.
Mr. Zachmann was absolutley the best teacher I have ever had.When a teacher is as enthusiastic and passionate about the subject as he, it motivates the students
Zachmann is a good teacher because he teaches chemistry as well as how to learn. This is from one of his old chemistry students who is now doing well in A.P Chm
Well, some of his stuff is pretty hard, but if you do the homework he's not that bad. And, he's always there before school if you need help.^^
an interesting teacher to be for sure.....i am sorry for those who must go through his class in years to come...my regrets and apologies
