Excellent, warm, funny & caring. I looked forward to his class everyday. His presentation is captivating & can make the most difficult subjects easy. He was my favorite! A+
I had the blessing of having Mr. Majeske as an English teacher at his first teaching job in the mid '70s. As a teacher he was the best of the best but my blessing went far further than the classroom. I had a less than ideal home life and Mr. Majeske and his lovely wife invited me into their lives outside of the school setting. Their kindness and caring made a difference that I'll always be thankful for. Plus he still makes me laugh. My life is better for having known this wonderful man.
Mr. Majeske is a legend and it's a shame that he won't be around to teach younger generations of students. It was a privilege to have him for both AP Psych and World History.
Amazing teacher and amazing guy! Too bad he is retiring after this year. I have him for AP psych right now and I love the class. It is so strange because you learn SO much without realizing you're learning at all! It's a fun topic and he gets that. His talking points are a blast and i LOVE Jeopardy days. I definitely feel ready for the AP exam in May.
He is the BEST teacher ever. He's not a n00b like some other teachers. He teaches, and you don't fall asleep in his class. He's legit.
Had him for neuropsych, gonna have him for AP psych. He is incredible. Right now he is and probably forever will be my favorite teacher. I always looked forward to that class. The discussions are super interesting, his sense of humor is great, he might seem a little strange at first but he is cool like that. I am generally quiet but he made me want to participate in class. Quizzes are super easy,
Psych: he doesn't really do much psych-related teaching in class. You read the book at home and "discuss" in class. You do learn a lot about life from him. Probably my favorite class at TJ. Love him.
Amazing. He is like a giant vat of knowledge, both academically and in the grand scheme of life. Really funny and loves his job. Strict, but totally reasonable about it. An all-around good teacher.
Great teacher for WHG 2. Tells funny stories; class is chill. Tests are memorizing the textbook and are sometimes difficult, but there are a ton of easy grades to make up for it. Didn't get through the whole textbook, and so I actually missed a question or two on my SOLs.
one of the most fun classes ever. lots of lecture, but it is entertaining and you learn a lot. mr majeske is a great teacher, but tests are hard, quizzes are basically fluff grades. great class
He is by far my favorite teacher. He is so funny, and loves what he does! Take his class!
Top notch, the whole class got 5's on the AP with no homework assignments all year
Great teacher, but mostly memorization and all lecture style classes, tests are pretty hard too
mr majeske is awesome! im so sad that he teaches only 1 ap gov class though.. he goes throught the book and discusses things.. its pretty interesting. plus he's so quirky and funny!
Mr. Majeske is a really funny and helpful teacher. He is great at teaching WHG1, even though we read out of our textbook alot, he goes out it (phew!) he is really funny so his class is never or rarely boring i will be so sad when i have to leave world history1 . the only downside: we get TONS to study even though other classes dont. Hes probably preparing us for the SOL though
hes super nice and hes hilarious. however, i dont find his teaching style of sitting in the front of the class, just telling us things in the book very helpful. but his class is awesome.
Great class, combines fun and teaching in a way most teachers couldn't dream of
I love this man, I love his class. He's an excellent teacher who really cares about his students. His grades are also very fair. If you deserve an A, you get an A. If you get him, you're very lucky.
Easy class if you do what he says and study the textbook for tests. He also is very entertaining! Also, he's nice to everyone in the class. Great person and great teacher.
Awesome teacher. I've never really enjoyed social studies, but I live gov thanks to Majeske. He leads great discussions and inspires thinking.
One of the best teachers I have ever had. The man has a gift for inspiring interesting discussion, and he makes his students care about whats going on in the country, now and in the context of history
great teacher, FANTASTIC lecturer, and all-around nice guy. Puts a lot (read: too much) emphasis on rote memorization, but makes up for it by making you think in discussions.
Absolute favorite teacher. Without a doubt the best government teacher, nice, understanding, and caring guy with a great sense of humor. I wish more teachers could take a cue from him.
Rock on Don. You made governement fun. Supreme court cases weren't that enjoyable, but useful to know. Wish I'd been a better student so I could have asked him for a recommendation. NVCC is giving me credit for my 3 on the AP! Score!
Had him for two years, absolutely amazing for every minute. No current events quizzes! I've seem him go through his illness and it's quite touching to see him try so hard to be able to keep teaching--he really cares about all of his students. Kind of like having a cool uncle for your teacher.
Not liking Mr. Majeske is like not liking your mother. You'd be a monster not to. A quirky guy, up there with Stuben, and loves teaching 100%. He knows what he teaches well. Grades aren't high, but he'll give the A if you work. But prepared for the Gov AP? Yes I am. My favorite academic class for senior year.
Mr. Majeske's classes are fun, the tests aren't hard if you've read the chapter. By far my favorite class this year, and the only one I put any effort into now that I'm into college.
So glad he came back this year, at least part-time, or I'm sure gov would have been awful.
BEST TEACHER EVER. He made my summer WHGII class worth missing beach trips etc. I was sad to leave, plus he's a great teacher and you really learn.
What an awesome guy. WHen he gets ticked it passes fast, and he's so funny.
a lot of memorization. his class is fun though; he loves teaching... lots of great quotes
Great teacher and cool guy. Funny in class. Really inspired me to learn more about govt and politics.
World History II was gonna be boring....but Majeske is incredible.
I love Mr. Majeske, only have him for TA though! Can't wait for his class senior year. Such a funny guy!
If you can't get an A in this class, you must be TRYING not to work...Majeske is great
HE IS THE GREATEST!!!!! he may seem intimidating at first, but he is very reasonable! First time I have enjoyed a social studies class. fun and interesting
The only teacher I have ever had that you can make fun of and not be hurt, argue with, watch speed past you in the morning, and make you laugh every day inclass
One of my fav teachers. Seems tough, but he'll take care of you -- if you don't mess with him. Great class if you put the time in. Lots of fun!!!
Amazing teacher, very, very helpful. But hard class.
Great teacher. If you're taking government, get him. And keep a quote list. Heh heh heh...
Cares about individual students. Loves his job. Great sense of humor. Hard class
excellent. just make sure he doesn't make fun of you =)
So easy for summer school, especially when teaching w/ Mr. Struck
Such a fun class! Grades based almost all on tests; only homework is studying.
eclectic knowledge;humorous,searcher,concerned,passionate teacher,well read,amaz
Made Govm't understandable and interesting! GET THIS TEACHER!
Very easy class if you can memorize things. Fun all around
he's really hard but is a great teacher. also very funny
not easy class, VERY fulfilling if you care. great person if you get to know him
A little too much memorization but great guy just don't get in a fight with him
He's a great person and he has passion for his job! Lectures are fun with him.
hardest gov class (not saying much)...but lectures are entertaining!
Mr. Majeske rocks my world. Class is entertaining, but it isn't an easy A.
Good guy, the class is just a bit heavy on memorization
Mr. Majeske rocks! He's a great lecturer, and he actually answers questions!
What a guy. And his class isn't as hard as everyone says
