Mr. Detlefsen was an excellent teacher! He had a great personality, was personable and made it very interesting. He gave me a clear and accurate understanding of the wars and the Industrial Revolution, all of it that I still remember to this day based on his class. I don't think a high rating should be based on if it was easy. I would be disappointed if a class or allied and axis powers was made too simple and dumbed down.
Mr D helped me pick my college and stood with me through all the difficulties of AP. He was amazingly supportive and always made time for his studentst.
Wow! I never really knew how to study until Mr. Detlefsen's History Honors class. My college success was greater because of him. And, yea, those were some research papers!
