Mr. Atsma was so funny and he made learning social studies great. He always had good stories to tell and he understood that some of things we were learning we all weren't exactly interested in so he always tried to make it as fun as possible. He also had a lot of knowledge. Overall a great year.

Well, he taught me how to play guitar, and I'm pretty good. Rumor has it he's teaching h/s history, and so am I - just got my Master's degree. I'd love to pick his brain on teaching approach - personally, I think he's brilliant - but I'm a way better guitar player.
