Had him for NSL and AP Psych. Great person, not so great teacher. Class quiz info came from the textbook, the hints he gave us in class. He sometimes just reads off slides, which is really annoying, but I enjoyed the class nonetheless.

Mr. Gilmore is a very fun person. He knows all the material and makes class fun. He wants you to succeed and does his make to make sure you do. He plans out the whole week for you, and tells you on Monday about tests occurring later in the week, while also telling you which pages of the textbook you should read each night to stay up to speed.

Pros
- Taught in an entertaining way. Made topics I didn't find that exciting into interesting ones. Ex. jokes, stories, connecting to current events
- Reviewed day of quizzes
- Helpful if you were confused
- Nice guy
- Improved his time management
- His twitter!
Cons
- Got everything from the textbook company. Quizzes, tests, notes. Many classes were spent literally reading off the outline provided by the company. The company expected us to know very specific little details on quizzes.

Mr Gilmore was one of my favorite teachers!!! If you listen to his lessons, they are NOT BORING and you learn a lot and he makes it really interesting! It's obviously hard but that's because it's an AP class, not because he is a bad teacher. THANK YOU MR GILMORE

-nice -usually fun but will call you out if he wants to and say harsh things -tries to be funny -gets very off topic -doesn't make any effort to do anything other than lecture us, no interactive activities ever -quizzes are weirdly specific -nice about giving extra points/curving quizzes -gets irritated easily -Twitter savage -savage generally (which can be bad or good depending on if you're victim)- lectures are often either boring or off topic, he can't engage & teach simultaneously -smart

Mr. Gilmore's a great teacher - he knows how to balance textbook use with his inclass teaching, which in all respects are very interesting and engaging. He's very knowledgeable in government and economics (I took him for government), and his class really, really helped me with the AP test.
-Light but neccessary reading
-corny jokes but kinda cute jokes
-Great presentations, good lecture

He's a cool guy, but teaching (which resembles Mr.Herner's)is boring. I guess there are not many good history teachers / hard to be a good history teacher.
