He's the best teacher ever. One year in his class, and now I'm a Physics major in college. Thank you, Mr. Kaldahl!

Mr. Kaldahl seems to (subconsciously?) promote a negative environment!!!!! EVERYONE TURNS MEAN IN THAT CLASSROOM! gahhhhhh it was awful! I don't know, maybe it was just my luck, but there was just some badddd negative energy in that classroom. I think it was because Mr. Kaldahl promotes laughing at certain students. He will make fun of certain ones and seem to idolize others. However, he is pretty funny and a good teacher despite that particular shortcoming.

Apparently some people take Mr Kaldahl the wrong way, but everyone I know loves him. I really enjoyed this year and there was always a great attitude and sense of community in his class.

Mr. Kaldahl was my absolute favorite teacher last year even though i was failing his class for most of it. He was always willing to help me and i was willing to let me make up so much work so i could pass his class. He was absolutely amazing at explaining physics to me and as a non math person that is quite an accomplishment. If he taught something other than Physics, i would take it in a heartbeat.

Pretty nice teacher, he has an occasional weird mood swing - and sometimes Mr Sheultz's awkwardness rubs off on him ... but he's typically very helpful and very funny.

Rare example of a teacher that really cares about his students and if you have to take physics you couldn't ask for a better teacher... A little hard though...

He's cool, although his tangents can get fairly long. All I wish is that we could go faster, as we are somewhat behind Deborah's class.

The coolest teacher in yorktown. Except..isn't his name Chris?? Anyways, physics rules and he loves to make corny jokes, really outgoing and not afraid to hurt himself being inertia man but maybe not anymore due to a recent incident with stati
