I like Mr Ackley. No matter what people say about him he is a nice guy. I say hi to him as often as I can and I will be very sad not to see him when I leave Iroquois.

He's a really great and nice person, but not my favorite teacher. His tests can be very challenging and do feature things that were not on the study guide he gives out.

He is cool sometimes but can be really annoying. He yells for no reason and blames things on kids for no reason. He holds grudges and holds things against kids. For example, I sent an email to a teacher saying I was going to start trying harder in class and Mr. Ackley assumed it was for him to. He addressed that email in front of the entire class. He expected me to an angel. Anytime I fooled around he would address the email in front of the class again.

Not a bad class but not my favorite. He played a lot of videos and should have done more group discussion work.

Not much I can add to what people already said. He's nice and fun to talk to now that I don't have him. And he was a decent teacher. He screams when he talks though.
