I really do not believe Schultz is a good teacher at all. First of all, for greek mythology, all he literally did was make us read from the book during class. He expects for the semester final for us to memorize the entire Trojan War, the stops in the Odyssey, The creation of mankind, and the races of mankind, and every little detail in the stories in the english book chp 1-4. He barely has to do anything, he just reads straight from the book and makes us regurgitate information on tedious tests

First of all, he is very sarcastic. He also talks a lot about himself. If you dont mind these things then it wouldn't bother you but its not my cup of tea. His tests are very hard but he isnt a hard grader on other things like essays or projects as long as you put in some effort.

He is the worst teacher I have ever met, he spends all the time talking on other topics rather than teaching. And all he does for teaching is just simply read by himself or call on students to read the book. He always mentions stuff relates to the track team that even doesn't relate to the British Literature! He can spend all the 54 mins on the places he traveled and show off how successful he is. You certainly don't want to have him in your senior year as he messes up your grades and GPA.

Chris Shultz is one of the the saddest excuses for a teacher I have ever had the displeasure of spending time with. Shultz not only lacks respect for anyone around him, but also for himself. He is consistently over sarcastic and simply dificult to be around. Chris Shultz should be avoided at all costs.

I had his class in my Freshmen year and senior year back in 2009 and 2013 respectively. His class is fairly easy and clear if you actually make notecards (required homework), and read the texts. One thing that still traumatizes me to this very day is that he stepped on my homework just for not having my name on it. He was just mean. Thank you Schultz for teaching me what terror is.

Most unfair, sarcastic, all-around not nice teacher I've ever had. He teaches almost nothing in class and says "this is what the real world is like." yet expects you to know everything he was GOING to teach. But none of that is on the test. Also the tests are unrealistically difficult.

Honestly, worst English teacher for British literature in senior year. Great personality and experiences, but doesn't work on his teaching methods. Most of the class period is reading from the 200 pound book verbatim that he requires us to bring everyday but sometimes doesn't even use. Gives hard tests on things that he says once, and makes us hate the subject we are learning. I'm pretty sure I could have enjoyed Macbeth, but now I cringe at the very mention of it. Needs to engage his students.

This guy.....doesn't walk with swag, but with determination. He makes you do pretty tedious work, and you need to study a hell lot for the finals, esp. in greek mythology. Other than that, he'll spend a half-hour of the period making you laugh by saying all sorts of jokes. Heads up, if you're retarded like Leo or a midget, gg because he's gonna make jokes on you all year. Overall, an awesome teacher and be sure to stay out of trouble!

I loved schultz for freshmen english :) he was the reason I decided to take AP english my junior year. He's a cool guy even though his teasing and jokes get old sometimes haha he plays favorites but not to a point where you can't stand it. Also, because I loved him so much freshmen english, I decided to go ahead and join his track team. Man, his workouts are hectic... definitely wasn't noticeable in his team of about 200 athletes. Basically, be good at what he wants you to do and he'll like you.

He is the most unfair teacher i have ever had. No doubt the worst experience in a class ever. He spends all his time in class boasting about all the great things hes done and getting so far off topic, he will use a solid 45 minutes of class time. He will teach you almost nothing during class time and expect you to know every single detail of every single fact he will ever mention. I have gotten A's in all my English classes growing up, and this is my first "C" grade ever.

He is hard, and unreasonable. 1/2 homework pts for being late to class. He talks about how we all shouldn't be late so that we can learn more. When people are late for just a min, he tells us to get out of class and get the tardy slip. I waste 10 mins of class for that. There was once, I was late for a min and he told me to get the tardy slip, and I was walking out and a teacher asked me why was i walking out of class, and he said that the principle hasnt made an announcement to get the tardy slip.
