I am a former student and am now a teacher. This is a man who cares about his students. Those who have him are lucky. I failed his class & I still learned a ton.

Shoe is awesome. He loves his subject matter and teaches it so well. It's nice to find a teacher at VHHS that enjoys what they do.

Best science teacher I had. AL was very cool, but while I didn't take AP, I know some freakishly smart people who study ALL the time who are struggling with it

Hard class, but a good teacher, and a cool guy, minus all the corny jokes. Explains everything thoroughly.

The guy is one of the only teacher in the school that legitimately cares that we learn and also cares about us as people. He respects us and thus gets ours.

I wrote a novel, about 200 pages of a fantasy novel to be exact, in his chem AP class. What other class can you never pay attention in and pull an A?
