Overall, he is a very good teacher. Those who complain about him are those, who barely attend class and/or barely pay attention in class. The only thing that I dislike about him is that he usually gets stuck on irrelevant subjects during class. Sometimes, he'll lecture rather than teach.

Mr. Menke in my opinion is actually one of my favorite teachers. I miss his "stories" and his corny phrases and how he'd come in to class late the the first thing he'd say is "hey guyz, excuse me".

He's really nice and respectful. Tons of funny jokes and life stories. But as a teacher, he's so/so. He knows his materlal (Kind of) but he can't teach it well and I'm often lost. (Latin)

Mr. Menke is the greatest teacher in Latin. He tries to make Latin fun. It is not his fault he may have a few bad jokes, but he tries. He is also very informative and struggles to help you learn.

menke is an amazing teacher. i have had him for 3 years and i feel like he is family, b/c that is the way he regards his students. he sincerely loves teaching and the only reason people don't like him is b/c he doesnt take nonsense from anybody. you don't do well in his class b/c you don't study. it's your own fault, not his.
