Any teacher that "tricks" students on tests or quizzes for his own entertainment isn't a great educator in my book.

I took his BC Calc class at GHS in 2010-2011. He is an excellent teacher, but he does expect a lot from his students. If you're not willing to put in the work, you will not do well. He teaches it much like a college course. He strives to have his students understand the material. He is always available, and very helpful if you have questions. Definitely one of my favorite all time teachers in high school. I scored a 5 on the AP exam despite getting a B. -JIF

I personally cannot stand Mr. Shefler. He is a joke - in calculus he only lets the smartest kids stay in the class - the rest he "encourages" to drop. That's how he keeps his pass rate so high - by g

He assigns more homework than necessary, one class of his alone can make that semester heavy regardless of your other classes.

Shefler is a cool dude. He teaches advanced courses, so don't worry about the math, because if you are taking his class you are probably good already. Interesting and fun.

Nice guy with a great personality. He hands out lots of homework, but always helps his students. Take no more than one class of his per semester and don't get on his bad side!

Good teacher, really nice and tries to help but I don't think he understands how to help kids that aren't super good at math. If you don't excel at math or science, don't take.

Shefler is a great teacher..this is because, although he is serious and get-down-to-business like when the time is necessary, Shefler will joke around, and we learn alot also!
