He's actually a really nice teacher. He allows you to do what YOU want to do and allows creativity where as most teachers might say it "violates school policy". He helps you out whenever you ask for it and he knows what he's talking about. He founded the computer graphics department in this school after all, so he definitely is knowledgeable. He is by far the better computer graphics teacher to have.
Kind've dorky, but also funny/querky. plays really annoying music sometimes, and good music other times. overall i enjoyed his class, and so did everyone else in it with me.
Coming from a person who has almost never had an issue with a teacher, Mr. Hoover, you are quite possibly the worst teacher I have ever had. He truly should not have his job at CHS.
He started off promising in my Art III class; actually taking it seriously, art critiques, stuff like that. Then he had hip surgery, came back with a great idea of a paper mache project that would take 4 or 5 months and no skill or freshness, and completely gave up on us. I still have nightmares about layer upon layer of slimy newspaper.
I am a big fan of Mr. Hoover. He's the toughest teacher I've ever had, and has actually made me cry twice, but you wouldn't believe how much my art has improved! I'm in his AP class, and I'm constantly amazed at how everyone is just so much better than they were at the beginning of the year.
He'll only yell at you if you are obnoxious. If you take his advice, you can actually learn something, my art improved dramatically because of his class.
congratulations - i will never pick up a paint brush again!! i hated this man
Students constantly hear their art is good, but mr hoover-one who knows his stuff- tells the truth and says what to work on--he's a great teacher
He is a talented artist. But he critizes the student's personality too much... He needs to focus more on just the artwork. But he knows his artwork!!
He is the worst teacher!!! He doesn't teach you anything besides sit there and yell at you.
OUTSTANDING!! Easy? NO, but I didn't sign up for easy. He challenges & pushes you beyond what you believe you can accomplish. You are so lucky to have him!!!
mr hoover scared me. if you ask for help he has a lot of good advice but watch out for your feelings
At first his Ap class scared me to death but i learned sooo much and my art will never be the same. He's tough but it was the best class i've ever had!!
