Schaef is the man, the physical embodiment of hilarious and just a great guy. BUT his algebra 2 honors class is not a joke. Be sure to pay attention during the times when he's not an a tangent about baseball or 80's music. The tests are definitely hard, and it may be difficult to catch him afterschool since hes really busy with leadership. However he will try to help you as much as he can even if his schedule's packed. Math is not my strongest suit but he made it bearable and even fun.

Me. Schaefer is the one teacher at Woodson that genuinely cares about his students. He teaches algebra 2 HN which is a super hard class at Woodson, but he is always willing to help kids that ask for it. If everyone was like Schaefer, this world would be a much better place.

Mr.Schaefer is a really funny teacher. He clearly knows what he is talking about, but does not convey it well at all. The key to understanding the material taught in his class is to watch very carefully what he does on the board. Don't listen to or try what he does or you will end up very confused, only watch. Also going to extra help after school is pointless because he will just end up getting caught up in leadership activities and won't really pay attention to help you out. Nice guy though.

The only funny thing about his class is the amount of people who regularly fail his quizzes and tests.

Schaef is the best guy you'll ever meet, but he doesn't teach you anything. Best leadership teacher ever! He always has your back, but if you have him for algebra you may end up teaching yourself much of the material

Schaefer is one of the coolest teachers at the school. Extremely easy going, you can do ANYTHING in his class. Though it may seem like there's a lot of homework, it's fairly easy and really helps you for quizzes.

I love Schaef! But his class is really hard if you let yourself fall behind, and catching up is hard. He knows what he's talking about, but doesn't really convey it well. Amazing person though
