My sister and I had this class together with him. She hated his teaching. I loved it. It is a hit or miss with him. He is a good teacher but can sometimes offend students.

Thinks he's really funny but he's NOT. And one time he kicked me during class and poured water on a student's head. seriously, Mr. Shuman, stop thinking you're so cool. Not even a good teacher, I didn't learn anything.

I had Mr. shuman ALLLL the way back in 1988, and it sounds like he hasn't changed one bit. He was an excellent teacher back then, and sounds like he's still great today. Keep it up, Mr. S.

You will never have another teacher who cares as much about you and your education as Shuman. Like someone else said, he means the world to me, and I mean it.

Very nice to his students, funny most of the time, but sometimes approaches scary. Provides a very relaxed atmosphere but gets some work done. Not sure what to think. Talks, talks, talks... You know it, Mr. Shuman.
