I had Mr. Jagels for history through film, after mr houser he was my second favorite history teacher. I wish i could have had more electives with him. I loved history through film, everyone was always raving about it but i guess he does't teach that anymore which is a shame. I don't know how he does in the other electives but the thing is I learned a lot of history from that class, especially about the orient and middle east

His class is enjoyable and he's a fun teacher. He's very laid back and is not very strict. I learn a lot from him. That said, he's extremely disorganized and often doesn't assign us homework until extremely late, so it's hard to do in advance. I've emailed him a few times about missed work and he never responded. Overall he's a good teacher. He knows what he's talking about. But he's also very disorganized and slow on grading

Just finishing sophomore year, Mr. Jagels is probably one of my least favorite teachers up to now. Yes, he's often a funny guy, usually nice and relaxed, and he teaches the material pretty well too. However, he is the most unorganized, lazy teacher I have ever had. He does not organize the year ahead of time at all, and because of this, he often has to give extra homework assignments for one night and sometimes later he gives no homework. Consistently takes longer than a month to grade essays.

Jagels is a chill teacher but doesn't specify anything. He goes on about random stuff and he shows you youtube clips all the time. Has the most random questions on his tests. Overall he's okay.

jagels is really chill most of the time but he can be a little unpredictable, as in he has sudden mood swings at times, where he goes from being really chill to screaming at the class. his grading system leaves me wanting something more, since its not very descriptive. he's also not very helpful when it comes to struggling students. overall he's an amazing teacher who really wants you to succeed and tries to help you do well.
