Wow surprised at such strong reviews. While I agree with a lot of what was said we spend a lot of time watching movies and copying notes. We need way more discussions, current events, and interaction. The class gets really boring when you watch movies all the time. I feel like I could just read a history text book to get the same info. Course is hard which is fine but I also want it to be interesting.

Rick was my teacher at the beginning of his career. (1986 - 87). He is the ONLY teacher, including college, that I can say really honestly cared about every student.
Over 25 yrs later, people still talk about how awesome he is.

Mr.Wagner is THE BEST teacher I have ever had. He is sooooo funny and unlike most teachers he actually teaches and makes it fun. If i could chose he would be my teacher all through high school. :)

Had Mr. Wagner as teacher a long long time ago, I really enjoyed his class, however I had a really troubled home life in which my interest is school was zilch and I ended up failing out of school and quit at 15, however Mr. Wagner had inspired me to join the military, in which it was the best possible choice I could have made considering the circumstances. Served in the submarine force for 10 years now and ended up getting my degree and everything worked out. I wish I could thank him.

If there were more teachers like him maybe more kids would actually go to school and have better attatudes while they were there. He'll talk to you about anything you want but makes sure you accomplish what he thinks you need to know first.
