I really enjoyed his class as he's very spontaneous.I looked forward to his class everyday because he would go off topic (in good ways) and he seems to be a teacher that cares very much about his students.It was easy to understand the concepts in gov because he just talks to us about government topics.I will definitely miss his class as he got very sick this year. If you are reading this Mr.Wishart,I hope you get better soon and please know that your 7th period really really misses you a lot!

Overall, Mr. Wishart is a great teacher. I like that he doesn't adhere to the confined structure of the book and that he makes it a crucial point for us to stay updated on current events and issues. His lectures are interesting, and he is very good at explaining things at a level that we, as seniors, can relate to. Strict, daily agendas aren't present, which I like a lot. I'm definitely going to miss him when I graduate this summer. :(

Mr. Wishart is such a great teacher. We might not stick to what's in the book, but his lectures are super spontaneous and random, which is way more interesting. He is very funny and not very strict, so the class is very laid-back (:

Wishart at first comes across as intimidating, but he is a marvelous teacher in terms of non-AP classes. The class itself is very easy. For me, I can't listen to most teachers for more than 20 minutes before falling asleep but with Wishart, I always pay attention to everything he says. I wouldn't say he is excited about the subject he teaches (Gov/Econ) but he comes across as an interesting individual, so I naturally pay attention.

Energetic, funny, keeps us updated on the politics that are happening in the modern day so we can apply our knowledge to the real world right off the bat.

We always go off topic and we never seem to stick to any plans. Class is fun and we talk about random things. Wishart is a cool guy, though.

Hot or not? What? He's super buff, but he's also like 50. Anyways he's really knowledgeable and got me interested in politics, but does not really teach what's supposed to be taught in our Gov/Econ class. I like him because I get to learn about topics that I'm actually interested in, but if you're just concerned about a grade and the state standards or whatever and won't have a good time discussing politics, you probably won't be a fan.

Easily one of the best teachers my child has had over the years. Sadly he isn't teaching the class now due to illness? Not sure what happened but he had a great way of teaching where my child learned the material without having to be overloaded with repetitive homework. Thanks Mr. Wishart, sorry you aren't still leading the class.
