The best teacher ever! I wish I could have him again this year. He does a lot of different things and teaches us about a lot more than history. He shares a lot of stories and really wants us to succeed and have a happy life. He is nice to everybody and always in a good mood. He doesn't allow disruptive students to get away with it, which everyone loves! He encouraged me to take AP, and I am and doing great! Everyone loves Whalen!

I love Mr. Whalen! I just move here from out of state and was going through a rough time last year when I got to AG. He made me feel welcome, made sure I was all set up in ALL of my courses, and checked in with me all the time. He cares about all of his students. I'm not sure if he used to be grumpy, but the thing I like best about him is that he is always in a good mood and pumped up about whatever it is we are studying. He mixes things up a lot to keep the class interesting. Awesome!

Whalen was the best teacher I have ever had! We did more work in his class than any other but it didn't feel like it. We had fun and everybody felt like family.

Whalen was interesting. He likes to joke a lot. If he tells you to be quiet and do your work DO IT.

Mr. Whalen is a very good teacher. We do take notes, we read a lot too. He is teaching us things other teachers don't. Its not all fun and games.
