He is my favorite teacher of all time and always will be. If he ever seems upset or grumpy, just remember his past and have some sympathy. If you truly get to know him and ask him for help, you will do so well in his class. He is a sweetheart and genuinely cares about his students. He is sarcastic, so if you're extremely sensitive, maybe don't take his class, but he is hilarious and so helpful. I would recommend him to anyone and everyone!

Mr. Vanderlugt is a teacher who picks class favorites and then picks on others. He is mean and strongly disliked by many students at the school because he calls them out in class, and openly talks about grades directly in violation of student privacy

In short, he's a bully. He thinks it's funny to be intentionally unhelpful and makes fun of students. I sincerely find him to be the worst teacher at northern. Very unprofessional, should not be allowed to teach.

Mr. Vanderlugt is one of the nicest teachers at our school. He makes it so Algebra 2 is more understandable. He has a nice sense of humor, making the class fun to take. I highly recommend his class.=]

Great math teacher. He always finds a way to make even the dullest concepts interesting to us, and I always have fun in his class while learning the content. He loves what he does and it shows!

Mr. V has gone down hill. He thinks he knows everything, and doesn't explain things well at all. If you get him, switch out, that's what I'm doing.

My worst teacher, K-12. Mocks you for not understanding, as he assumes you know all he knows. Often the only one laughing at his own jokes. A bully in the classroom.

Mr. V is a pretty good teacher, but I was disappointed when his student teacher left. He was a great teacher last year. I can tell he wants everybody to do well.
