He is a very good and funny teacher but without a doubt this is the hardest class I have even been in.
Best teacher I've had, and I used to not be interested in history. His class helped me gain an interest in history.
El Jefe is an excellent teacher. My son comes home every day and says how good of a teacher he is. Multiple of my kids have gone through his class, and he just keeps getting better and better.
Best teacher at MBMS by far. Trimester exams are difficult, knows the material very well and will help you with anything.
HE IS THE BOMB-DIGGITY. HE IS LITERALY THE GREATEST TEACHER YOU WILL EVERY HAVE. JEFITE FO' LIFE
He is literally the best teacher i have ever had. he taught so well, and his humor is hilarious. you just really need to pay attention and read your notes every day. he is always really kind to students. the ROKs arent that hard, (im in the middle of the third one now) as long as you study. JEFITE FOR LIFE
Worst teacher ever. Honestly if you get him get ready to leave. My friend got bad grades in his class and once she moved she started getting A's. This clearly shows progress. If you are not the favorite everything is going downhill for you so good luck. If you like him, fine but that's just odd. And if you don't because you went through what I went though then I feel your pain. Seriously save yourself and your life. Ridiculous class, bad class, don't ruin your life because of this. Trust me.
Mr Rucker is the best teacher I have ever had! He is super funny and always grasps your attention. His exams can be really tough if you don't study, but as long as you pay attention you should be good. He knows all the material he teaches by heart and is very knowledgeable. Great experience, wish I could have him every year!!!
BEST TEACHER EVER! He is so fun and funny and makes learning a totally awesome experience. Dont get me wrong, his class was way hard and i failed third trimester, but he taught me study habits and learning skills I am using through highschool and into college. If you are determined and focused in his class you will be so grateful. I wish everyone got a chance to experience being in Mr.Ruckers class.
Mr. Rucker is the best teach I ever had. He helped me actually enjoy learning which is something I am very grateful for. Make sure to make flash cards for every test so you can use them for the boulder. Without him I would have no care for academics in high school. Just put in the work and study hard and you will be really happy with the results.
best ever and i am happy to have been in his class and create memories with fellow Jefites
Best teacher in the world
Best teacher ever!
B E S T person I've ever met!
He's a lot of fun to have, but he simply doesn't teach at all and just jokes around. He even made our class harder because we had all the smart kids that were in geometry. Class of 2012 6th period!!
He's the best teacher ever, and can really connect to his teenage students. You can do well on his tests if you study, so just STUDY A LOT.
BEST TEACHER EVER!! He makes me laugh so hard in class. You have to pay attention and do homework and if you do that the tests are easier. I think I'm going to cry with out him next year he's like my father.
He has hard tests and doesn't even teach properly just jokes around
annoying a horrible teacher and thinks he's funny but he's not. Picks on kids in an unfriendly manner and is very rude.
once-in-a-lifetime teacher. still remember him and his words 10 years later. class of 02.
Zack is cool zack is cool zack IZ cool zack is cool
HIS TESTS ARE SO HARD, I HEARD SOMEONE FAINTED WHEN HE SAW THE 3RD ROK
He is the hardest godawful teacher and sometimes teaches, but when he does hes good. He is knowledgeable, ill give him that, but seriously, he gives different tets for different levels of knoledge per person. WHAT PERSON DOES THAT????? But you will find yourself either learning a lot or having a mental breakdown in the middle of the year. (for me, both)
good teacher very hard but accually teaches the material
He's an excellent teacher, and is a lot of fun, I have him 6th period 2011-12, and we have 5 more weeks till school ends. But I don't do good at his tests at all but I do just fine on the so called "R.O.K" LOL
He providesis guidance to his students and his tests are too much, really a 3 day final exam.......
Awesome person and great teacher!!! Very knowledgeable about not only S.S but everything!!
Mr. Rucker was my favorite teacher. His class wasn't hard if you did all the homework and studied for his tests. The rocks were really hard, but as long as you do al your other work, it won't bring do
he's a great teacher. Go 3rd period!!! The ROK's aren't impossible; you just need to pay attention in class and then review later. Being in his class really helps you learn.
ok sooo.....JEFITES GOR LIFE!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I love Rucker!!! His tests are harm but that;s the best part because he challenges you.
His ROKs are fairly easy, just pay attention in class and you'll be fine. Nothing about the class is out of reach, just put in effort and you'll be fine. People who complain aren't trying and are lazy
HILARIOUS, and he is a GREAT CLEAR teacher, but I would like him to realize that the ROKs are impossible, and failing kids is not a good form of intertainment. Easy class except for ROKs
Well Considering i'm like his favorite student ever (4th period 2010!!!!) he kicks behind
Best teacher I've had in all of my education but didn't quite pull off the A I wanted. He's hilarious and I go to visit him twice a year and he's always excited to see me and find out what ive been up
NOT that hard. but all we do is watch movies, his lecture are great WHEN he does them. you don't have to study that much. his class is a lot of hype. but a pretty cool guy.
Very hard teacher, but I am having fun in his class.
His class is very hard because of the three reviews of knowledge, but it is all worth it for how fun his class is. He makes it easy to learn. Jefites for life.
why does everybody think the class's so hard? it's really not... you just have to listen when you review almost every day? also, he's the only teacher i have really liked at mbms
awsome teacher.. i don't even have him but i have heard a lot
OMG! He is really nice but he is SO FREAKING HARD! In his class I have my worst grade...a B! I am so annoyed. He is so difficult and gives a three day exam with 300 terms! We have to know all of them!
mostamazing teacher ever! hillarious and helpfulljust hard, but it pays off in high school! use flash cardsss and study! ull do fine! HE WAS AMAAZING! BEST TEACHER EVER EVER EVRE!!!!!!!
HARD But a G He expects too much from everyone. He is having a three day exam. 500 points,with 450 terms you have to know."u should no this just pull it from ur hard drives " thats wat he says Alot!!
He is a good teacher but he expects to much out of everyone he is really funny though. he makes things fun,but his tests have like a hundred terms! He is kind of a bittersweet kind of teacher.
Great teacher, amusing class- I'm proud to be a Jefite. Do your homework and STUDY (for 2nd and 3rd symesters/ ROKs) and you'll do fine. Class is challenging but reasonable- prepares you well 4 Costa.
The other day he put his hand in an imaginary waffle iron and was screaming in anguish. Funny. Very good teacher. Hard class, but fun teacher.
I just started Mira Costa, and Mr. Rucker is by far the BEST teacher i ever had at MBMS. He's extremely intelligent and fun. If you're not a jeffite then I feel very sorry for you. Awesome!
Hard class, great teacher. His puns are horrible, his music is great, and his side stories are funny. He's a very funny and witty guy, and I always look foward to takling with him.
The Rucker is the greatest. I will never ever forget his class. He is so awesome, all non-Rucker disciples are missing out big time. I gotta go visit that guy.
Really good teacher. just prove to him you at least care about your grades and prove to him your not just a punk and he'll respect you. really funny and a overall great teacher.
Im a senior now at Costa and I have to Mr. Rucker is the best teacher I have ever had. A little hard but its the best class. Enjoy him and appreciate it.
rocks.best teacher i ever had. prepared me for HS well.extremely hard working. HILARIOUS. good taste in music. very smart.
really funny and is a good teacher...really prepares for high school
your class is supper hard, but it is really fun. just like my sister said!!!
Great teacher. One of those that you remember long after you had him. -Class of 02
I loved Mr. Rucker. He's possibly the best teacher I had in Middle School. He sets high standards but it makes you strive to improve yourself.
He sets high standards to challenge us. VERY enjoyable class.All the kids either love him because he's AWESOME/dislike him because he's strict/has weird jokes.
Does he still wear the suits? He was an awesome teacher and I really liked his class. Of course, it's been years since I had him, but we were his first year.
Probably the best teacher I ever had throughout middle school. Definitely right on the nose about how high school is...I was a lot better prepared because of him.
Mr. Rucker is great. He's funny, and its great when he says I digress. But watch out for the Final Essay. It's super hard. Ask him to do his marge simpson impression.
So kewl!! He's very funny, but his classes can be hard due to his strict grading. Totally kewl.!!
He is a great teacher. Hes very funny and his nickname is El Jefe
The best history teacher I have ever had. A real cool guy who does great impressions and is always professional!
