This guy cannot teach. I swear all he does is throw you a worksheet. Everyone throws it out bc it's useless. What gives this guy the right to judge me. I'm not being mean but his face looks like my scrotum. Damn reject needs to learn to teach.

Literally the greatest teacher of all time. You will not find a better teacher on the planet than him and I am not exaggerating. By all means take his college advantage course, he will help you pass and get the college credit while still learning valuable information. One of the very few teachers who actually make you want to go to class.

Am I the only one here who didn't enjoy his class at all? He is a nice dude but he can be very irritating at times and is very hypocritical. He likes to joke around in class ,but gets mad when other students make jokes. He's an okay teacher. (I have to admit)

Mr Ackerman is hands down one of the greatest teacher's i've ever had the fortune of having. He is very personable, and uses song to help you learn, and no matter how annoying you may think they are, they'll always be stuck in your head. He cares so much about his students, even though he wouldn't admit that, and he's like a cool dad. I'll never regret taking his college advantage class, i love him so much he's such an amazing teacher! 12/10

He is an excellent teacher who makes learning fun. He sings songs about the lesson to help us understand and remember the topic better, and I enjoy his loudness. Some people get annoyed with his singing, but that's one of the things I love about Ackerman! He looks intimidating, but is an extremely kind man, a gentle giant I'd say, haha. And while some hate them, I love hearing his corny jokes :D

Mr. Ackerman is literally THE best teacher in the Social Studies Department. At first I thought he joked around too much, but he makes class so much fun and all of his jokes help me remember things that we're learning. He's the best!

he's like the best teacher i've had in hs. he makes class entertaining by singing about history. He would help you improve by giving out extra credits. And eventho it's my last class and i always cut he never gave me a bad attitude and that ultimately led me to pick up my slack. thanks ack!
