Gavin is the most intelligent human I have ever met, and he is the Lebron James of teachers (he even cracks in the 4th quarter). We are taking him to the Porkopolis in the summer to obtain more historical knowledge about our four-fathers and to obtain several loads of double pork sandwiches that he talks about every day. I just want to call him dad.
First tip: go to the website for the textbook, go to the outlined noted for each chapter, and copy and paste them into a word file. Congratulations, I've just done 80% of your homework for you. If you pay attention and take diligent notes, a you should be able to get at least a 4 on the AP exam. If you want to avoid being picked on (it's not hateful or anything by the way), then I suggest volunteering to answer a question once or twice a day, and never volunteer any personal information.
I'm not sure about his other classes, but he is the best AP U.S History teacher I know. His teaching is primarily lecture style, but we will spend days on certain topics to make sure students fully understand. All the homework he gives is worth it, and he understands if you have to hand things in late. I'll never forget what we learn in this class, and I feel so much more knowledgeable after every lecture. Mr. Kalner is also just a great man- so I encourage you to talk to him in your free time.
Kalner is an amazing teacher and by far my favorite this year. It's my first time in AP history as he has been nothing but helpful. He has extra help for everything, even essays. My essay grade went from 11/20 to 18/20 when graded on a college level in a matter of about 2 months. He gives a lot of work, but he is funny and never has a problem helping with it. His entire demeanor just brightens my day.
By far the smartist teacher i ever had and im in college now and still i will say he the smartist teacher i had.He knows his stuff. He will play both side's of the politcal views. He is the man and pe
best teacher ever. gives a lot of homework but its easy to do well in his class ...really understanding
Mr. Kalner is a great teacher but he teaches a hard class. He gives a lot of work which makes his class difficult but he is definitely helpful and clear in his teaching. Overall he's good.
Most amazing US teacher. His class was fun, and he still prepared us really well for the AP test.
definitely one of the best teacher i've ever had. He knows what he's teaching and even though he seems intimidating at first, he is truly approachable for anything and super funny. Best class ever!
one of the very few teachers i can look back at and honestly know i learned something from him. awesome in the classroom (his brain is like an encyclopedia) and a caring person outside the classroom too :) dose good things with his clubs. thanks kalner :) ohh and on our dc trip.. i remember how happy he was when we celebrated his "40th" birthday.. haha all 300 of us had a great laugh.
tenacious and sagacious are the only words coming to mind. nice guy
great all around person, dont tale his class unlessou like lectures, sometimes he seems mean,actually he's just joking. he really does care inside and outside the classoom.. he will always have time to hear your problem and help u solve it.. also very understanding when stuff happens
knows anything possible about history... "butternutts,hessian fly's, underground RR-sammy" crayz but cool.. need to breakdance more often..like on the fieldtrip.. :)
Mr. Kalner knows what he's doing when he teaches his students. Even though I didn't realize it at first, he's also a really nice guy who cares about his students very much. Overall; he's just an ideal teacher.
best tacher ever and is as good as MR. Manning in all departments. only cant sing as well.. as in the variety show!!...
Great teacher. I got a better view of things in life because of him.
best teacher ever i love him may have not admitted it a couple of yrs ago but he cares and wants students to excel even tho hes good at pretending to not care
great all around person, at times difficult to learn, unless you like lectures. sometimes he seems rough,actually he's just joking. he really does care
he goes off on too many tangents during a lesson and talks about himself too much
MR. KALNER SINGLE HANDEDLY TURNED MY LIFE AROUND FOR THE BETTER. HE IS A HUGE ASSET TO OHS AND THOUGH HE MAY NOT ADMIT IT, HE DEEPLY CARES FOR HIS STUDENTS
Kalner has helped me a lot, both inside and outside of the classroom. Asset to OHS!
He has his bad days and good days...and is the only class I look forward to every day...he is hilarius
Kalner thinks he knows it all, but actually nobody know everything. He gives too much work, He is pompus in that matter, but overal he is a good teacher.
walks around thinking he is JUST THE COOLEST, Very Obnoxious, but its funny considering HES SO NOT IN.
Best teacher, will go out of his way to help a student. great man
You are the greatesat mr kalner. you made my first year of global the best
Calm down Kalner this is not college stop hammering us with these 3 assignments per day plus a quiz.SLOW DOWN!
Dont have a heartattack giving us TO MUCH HOMEWORK!!
Very funny but sometimes is a pain. Kalner stop giving is to much tests and homeworks we have other classes to.
Horrible guy..constantly seems like he's trying to embaress you or make fun of you
Definitely the coolest teacher! His class was the most enjoyable out of every class I've ever had.
Good teacher, but at OHS Battle of the Bands 2003, he wouldn't even go on stage with the faculty band name after him!! Kalner!! Kalner!! Kalner!! Kalner!!
Have no respect for the guy. Embarrased me horribly.
Really down to earth..relates w/ his students...would bend over backwards for anyone..awesome teacher
