His class is unbelievably easy, you won't necessarily learn a whole lot but if you do what's assigned you'll get a lot of practice with the language (plus he only speaks in French, unlike putzeys). An incredibly nice man, but hard to read

Jobe a un doctorat en francais, et sait de quoi il parle. Si vous voulez apprendre le francais, ce est le gars a vous apprendre. Si, comme moi, vous etes juste le prendre parce que ce est necessaire etre prepare pour une certaine douleur. Il est drole et a un bon sens de l'humour, et le travail est facile, mais fastidieux. Bonne chance!

Unclear. Makes fun of students. Plays favorites. Inconsistent.

My speaking and listening skills improved a lot in Jobe's class because we only spoke French. However, we didn't go over grammar very often, so I would recommend studying from the textbook or any of the packets he gives out. Also, his class is kind of boring.

I LOVE JOBE! Sweetest man ever, really cares about his students. As a teacher he is a little lacking in certain departments, but his personality makes up for it. instilled a love for french in me.

Dr. Jobe is probably one of the most inetlligent people at North. When you talk to him alone it really is scary how smart he is.

Mr. Jobe is really lacking when it comes to teaching - his explanations are unclear and he ignores hard questions. At times he was very condescending, treating students like his 5 yr. old daughter.

People who have him for a study hall have no idea what it's like to be in his french class. He misplaces a lot of papers and though he means well, he is not what you'd expect of a high school teacher.

At first I thought he was cool, but then I had a French visitor come to class with me and after talking to him she said, "J'ai rien compris" and said he made a ton of grammar mistakes. He's an okay guy, but is definately NOT clear in his explainations and wont answer hard questions. I agree with his teaching philosophy; yet he doesn't really practice what he preaches and is lazy about correcting stuff and handing it back.

I thought he was cool at first, but he really doesn't teach much, you have to make the effort. He isn't all that clear about stuff, and every test includes old material, so review!
