He loves what he does and is extremely passionate. He is adorable and makes jokes all the time that nobody really laughed at except for me. He gives A LOT of work! Like A LOT but it is never usually too hard. Just essay's or notes. Knows his subject extremely well and makes the stories he tells interesting.

Mr. Wiesner is one of THE BEST teachers I have had. Though he does not use much technology, he is able to keep his students engaged with his lectures and his endless knowledge. He is genuinely caring, not only about his students, but about the world. He inspired me in IB History and in Homeroom with this advocacy for Amanda Knox, and human rights. I wish I had the luxury of having him as a teacher for another year!

Mr. Wiesner was the best teacher I have ever had including all from U of H and CSU. He opened my eyes to philosophy, psychology and history at a young age, he taught many different angles but always encouraged us to make up our own minds. I even took a trip back to Hawaii to introduce my husband and thank him for being such a role model to me during high school and after. I am forever indebted, thank you Mr. Wiesner, Jenean
