If you happen to get mr Hersey switch out immediately. He is an awful teacher that loses your papers and does not teach. And when you come to ask for help he will get mad. He should retire because he is really old and seems like he hates kids.

Mr. Hersey is the best geometry teacher. This is the second time I have taken Geometry. First time at another school and the teacher did not know anything about Geometry. Mr. Hersey gives lots of help if you ask and he tutors after school. Lots of chances to retake a test. Some of the class just want to pass and do nothing. At least he makes you try. I wish more teacher were like Mr. H. Thanks Mr. H.

There were days at a time where he wouldn't say a word to my class. I didn't learn a thing and often had a line at my desk because he would yell at students if they asked him a question.

Pretty good teacher. Makes you remember what you learn. Wants to give you a good grade but he will give you a lousy grade if you deserve it. Will give you extra help if you ask him. Calls parents. I learned a lot from him.

Good teacher if you want to go onto college. Some kids hate him cause he makes them work and he won't give grades or put up with a lot of talking. Likes to call parents - watch it. Gives you help after school if you want it.

Mr. Hersey had my daughter in Geometry this year. She had a really hard time due to several days being out ill. He was very understanding and gave her a lot of time to make up her work and come in for extra help after school. He gave her a grade benefit due to her really trying hard to get a good grade. He is a very kind man and very understanding.

Mr H is o.k. He makes you think to get a good grade. He does not like to give Fs unless you do nothing and talk all the time. Some kids are real jerks in this school.

Mr.Hersey is a fair teacher. He cares alot about teaching us. He wants all the kids to learn but some kids dont care. He has to take alot of time telling kids to stop talking. He is fair with home work. He tries hard.

Mr Hersey is a good teacher. He gives us a lot of practice for tests and assesments. Some of the kids in the class dont pay attention to him who want to fail and dont care. Mr hersey tries to help them learn. This class is hard but mr. Hersey is ok.

I am a parent who has a daughter in his Essential Geometry class. She struggles a lot with math and Mr. Hersey is the first teacher to really help her. She comes for help after school and he spends a lot of time with her. She even sends him an e-mail on Sunday about her grades and he answers her right away. More teachers should be like Mr. Hersey. Some of the kids don't like him but my daughter tells me if they would listen to him they could do a lot better. I am thankful that

hes too old, he was probably a good teacher back in the day but people are fail and get Ds in his class not because they didnt understand but because he likes the homework and notes to be a certain way always and if its not perfect then he dosnt take it. his students dont respect him whatsoever so i wish him luck...
