He doesn't teach, so that's already a bad thing. Plus, the fact that he's biased towards non athletic students is a terrible way to teach. And not reading our essays doesn't make it fair to grade. Worst teacher ever
Mr. Wellen is a joke. The key to getting an "A" on an essay in this class has nothing to do with quality. It's all about quantity. The longer the essay the better. I actually went as far as to type song lyrics as my body paragraphs and still got an "A." I even took this to the administration as proof of his inadequacies as an educator and their response was that he had tenure and there was nothing that could be done.
mr. wellen was an easy going teacher until you have to do the exams. 2 essays in one period? that shocked me. i got b's and c's on the essays but in my second semester, i got A's on all of the essays. i guess it was just a matter of adapting to his essays and really focusing on myself on how to present an essay. his worksheets on essays were so helpful--i will rely on them in college. he's always playing games on his phone while the students do easy activities and watch weird videos.
he's a pretty chill teacher. i took his ERWC class in my senior year. you don't do much besides reading and watching videos. it's easy to get an A, but he grades essays difficultly. you have to do 2 book reports a semester which is pretty useless since no one reads their books. one exam is 2 essays which is pretty hard since you have to write two 4-5 paragraph essays in only 40-50 minutes.
I had him during Junior year and the class was the best laid back class I've had so far. Do not expect to learn anything and try to switch out if you want. I had it good because it was my 6th period; and after a day of boring, tedious work, I get to lay back and cool off in a class filled with laid back, chill students.
Highly recommend Mr. Wellen! His essays weren't that easy, but it was always a pleasure going to his class.
ILOVE MR WELLEN!!! ur never tardy, u can talk to him about life and he actually listens! and hes funny!!! im so glad i got him 2 years in a row!!! great teacher!!!
He doesn't really read your essays. Just use "we" write good intro, conclusion, topic sentences, and write long and you'll be fine. Other than that, he gives you annoying work to do, but I've had worse teachers.
I have learned SO much in Mr. Wellen's class this year! He is super cool and super smart. He really makes his lectures understandable and fun.
Mr. Wellen is a GREAT teacher. I have learned so much this semester. He makes learning fun and has really improved my ability to write essays.
He only actually taught like 2 times but was pretty good at it.
SUPER LAZY and UNCOMMITTED. only thing that was hard are the essays.
all this guy does is probably watch espnzone on his computer all
Mr. Wellen is the BEST! By far the best English teacher that I've had at Sunny Hills.
Mr. Wellen is a very cool teacher. I love his class and have learned alot.
His class is an easy A but he's not the type of teacher that actually teaches really anything. I wouldn't recommend this class if you really want to learn something and be prepared for college.
this class is real kick back. wellen's a chill teacher.
Awesome and cool teacher. Learned more about writing in his class than in all of my other English classes combined.
you're gonna love his class... not recommended if you really wanna learn. his class is an easy A
I REALLY enjoyed his class and learned a lot this year.
Great teacher! Challenges his students to use their mind in a creative sense when it comes to lit. Gives helpful tech. that my child will use in the future. Has helped my child prepare for coll.
LOVE when he tells stories about his two kids! COOL TEACHER!!!!
Very good teacher. Interesting assignments. Makes you think.
best teacher alive, anyone who thinks differently doesnt deserve life.
he lives in the computer!!! he does not do anything except tell us to do what is written on the board!
Mr. Wellen can be very hard sometimes. However, he is much cooler with his new brown sunglasses.
Mr. Wellen is my favorite English teacher ever. He is very talented...at English.
Seems like rather than looking at the work, Wellen grades on a scale of how involved you are in school sports.
should try and read his students essays. Makes it easier to give appropriate grades don't u think?
Worst English teacher ever! Gives better grades to his basketball players. Always on his cell!
