I am now a high school junior but I can say with confidence Mr. Salski is the best teacher I have had. I have an appreciation for anyone that tells you how it is without beating around the bush. He is truly a teacher that leaves a lasting impression and helps prepare students for the real world. By far the most important lesson I took from his class was that life isn't fair so you should suck it up or do something about it unlike all the mindless globs of people asking for pity. Kevin.

I LOVE MR. SALKSI HE IS THE BEST TEACHER IN THE WORLD, HE LOVES TO ROAST PEOPLE AND THAT ENTERTAINS THE CLASS. HE IS BALD WHICH MAY BE HIS OWN DECISION. HE HAS PREPARED SO MANY THINGS FOR PEOPLE TO DO FOR THE CONSTITUTION TEST THAT IT DOESNT SEEM HARD. PEOPLE MISUNDERSTAND HIM FOR BEING MEAN BUT I THINK THE COMPLETE OPPOSITE. HE IS THE NICEST TEACHER I HAVE EVER MET. I LOVE MR. SALSKI

I had no issue with the class itself. I got good grades. I had issues with how he treated us. He would say he was "perfect", but often made me question whether he was joking or really thought it. One time, he pulled me out of class for crying, and began to yell at me because I was "too old to cry". I had been teased a lot for crying in that past, so he only made it worse. I still think about that day and it still makes me feel terrible. Other incidents like this are I don't recommend Mr. Salski.

At first, my impression of him wasn't too favorable, but taking the effort to get to know him was worth my time, and he's actually one of my favorite teachers. Mixed in with his strict yet invigorate and intellectual personality was dry sarcasm and an easygoing humor, and his "punishments" honestly motivate us to improve ourselves as a student in his class and to be more diligent in group assignments; frankly speaking, he was a teacher that was like a true friend to me. Ignore the haters!!!

Personally Mr. Salski was my favorite teacher even though he could be a pain sometimes. He helped me learn a lot and got me prepared for 8th grade. He likes when you tease him and argue with him, and he likes to always be right because he is "perfect" or thats what he thinks.

Ignore the negative reviews since they come from immature students that never give effort in class anyway. He is one of the absolute best teachers I have ever had. He is an extremely wise and dynamic person, which makes his teaching eccentric & I look forward to seeing him every day. His class is challenging and mind simulating, & he doesn't allow laziness. I am so grateful to have him as a SS teacher and he has helped me in many ways. He cares so much for his students and wants us to exceed.

Mr. Salski is not the easiest teacher, but he strives to make you a better person. He gets you involved no matter what. No body gets left behind in his class. His simulations were the best! I remember when he brought it fake rats to show that a plague was approaching. If you ever need clarity on something, go ahead and ask him. He prepares and educates you. He's one of the smartest person I know. Mr. Salski, you are the best teacher I have ever had. I wish their were more teachers like you.

I had Mr. Salski in class last year and, despite what many are saying, he is a great teacher. Me is strict, but helpful. He is sarcastic, but funny. He cares about students and helps you to know more about the economy by having one in the classroom. I loved his class and personally did well because of his help. I am so glad I had him as a teacher when I was in 7th grade and I will always remember Steve Salski as an amazing teacher.

Mr. Salski is one of those who tries to push each student past their limit. Despite his sarcasm and strict teaching, I'd say he's well-rounded teacher. I know that there's many people that despise him, but he's just a teacher who developed a unique style of teaching. Every teacher can't be perfect in everyone's standards. Even though Mr. Salski seems to give out a lot of work during class and for homework, he gives a sufficient amount where a student can learn, but isn't completely stressed out.

Sarcastic, but a good teacher. Yells at me, I once choked on a paper clip, and he made me leave the room. And then he just stared me down the rest of class. The simulation was fun only because I was a Lady, he still yelled at me and took my livestock. Sarcastic.....

(Part 2) He also charged a girl for not answering his question, the one he asked WHILE she was in the bathroom! When asked why he charged her for something as simple as going to the bathroom, he responded, "That's the risk you take by going to the bathroom," What kind of teacher charges you for just going to the bathroom? While he charges for some more reasonable things like sitting in more comfortable furniture, or sharpening your pencil, he charges for really dumb things.

(Part 1)With Mr. Salski, you can never be right, EVER! For example, if you have a problem, he just tells you to email him after school, even when he is right there. He always wins in court because he thinks that since he is the teacher, then he is always right. When he is with Ms. Berk, the teacher in the other half of the divided room, they always charge everyone "Jaguar Bucks" our school's currency that we NEED just to sit at our desks. You can imagine why not having enough would be a problem.

Mr. Salski is an amazing teacher. He is very strict and pushes you very hard. Many people don't have great grades in his classes because he expects a lot from you. Though it is hard on us students, without it we wouldn't be pushed our hardest to do our best. His stimulations always help us learn and his teaching methods are amazing. He is a hilarious guy and is always fun to have as a teacher. If you don't stay on task, focused,and try your hardest, you will not succeed. He's a true inspiration.
