he is a legend in his own time. gr8t teacher. funny!!!!!
mr calkins is honestly, the most chill spanish teacher in uni. he's hard, but the knowledge is what you gain.
Calkins is retiring this year ...he said stuff like "why don't you just sit there and collect dust!!" "Oh look, it's the legend of his own time, what are you doing contemplating the 5th demension?" or, "so you are just sitting there waiting for osmosis to take place?" ugh!! but he's pretty cool !!
His class is pretty chill but he doesn't really go through the material thoroughly. You really have to study to understand what's going on.
Spanish 3 not a very hard class; do the homework and study and you will be fine, just sit back and watch him bash the slackers.
yeah, I remember Calkins from last year... he was by far the funniest teacher I had, but all he did was make jokes, not really teach... a fun class, but you needed to put in a lot of work from the book to make up for what you didn't learn in class.
Puppyhilldaisyfarm, how do you get home at night... you fall off the bed and you miss the floor... put away the jungle juice... strike, lightning... HE IS AN AWESOME TEACHER.
Senor Sarcastic strikes again. Super funny, really strict, but once he gets used to your class, he lightens up.
love him. a very funny teacher. Intimidating at first, but its all good.
Tough, but fair. It is apparent that he tries very hard to teach his subject well, but occasionally he falls a bit short. He could be a little less strict, but if you know the subject he is very reasonable.
He is a good teacher. When I had him in my freshmen year, I had quizzes every single day. So I suggest that you study hard. He does look like a Spaniard though. Haha.
easy spanish 2 class cuz of extra credit. He is either very rude or very funny. He teaches very fast so must keep up the pace. The good thing: no projects until near end of the year.
he doesn't answer our questions and expects us to magically know things. he spends half the time complaining about life rather than teaching us.
why is he the only one teaching AP? senorita Natan should teach AP!
Helped me a lot in calc. took me to McDonalds every once in a while.
cool teacher if ur on his good side..his jokes are funny if they aren't aimed at u.. make sure ur not on his bad side cuz u'll get picked on the entire year
He still talks like that? "strike lightening.." It's funny to other students, but not to the student it's aimed at. The lightening talk is getting old.
Great man, great teacher, funny and to the point. just be on time and don't chew gum.
he might come across as scary but hes actually pretty cool and understanding
He is such a great spanish teacher, he is also cool.
Very interesting teacher. Know Spanish very well...WORK HARD and you'll get an A
Funny as hell...if you do your work he won't pick on you....
c'mon lightning....strike, before the gypsies get you
comes off a bit strong but really does care about his students
does name-calling a bit too much. but he truly cares for his students
Tough, but cares for students and wants them to learn.
