Best teacher I have ever had, hands down. I almost cried when I found out he was going to retire. Not a day in college went by where I wasn't thankful I had taken his classes in high school. I was way more prepared than my peers. His classes were some of the hardest I have ever taken. He expected a lot from students but I feel so much more well-rounded as a person because of it. He was always available to help. I really hope whatever he is doing that he's happy, he helped make me who I am today.

Tom Arend's courses were not easy, but rather they were challenging, engaging and valuable. He should earn better ratings for his ability to inspire dedication to learning rather than for easiness.

Good teacher, and entertaining to boot, though his tests are difficult freshman year, you just got to study!! Love this class, though I thought differently at the beginning of the year.

I had Mr. Arend in 1985, he is one of the greats! A teacher with a real passion for teaching. He made you work for your grade, but you loved doing it.
