His class is hard. There is no way around it. You can avoid him if you want but looking back on it I wouldn't have missed that class for the world. Mr. Pelsters English class brought down my GPA when I thought I was good at English, this was because no matter who you had before you're probably not good at English. Mr. Pelster in a purely academic sense is the best teacher at De La Salle. If you listen in class and user good inline resources Mr. Peslter will turn you into an essay writing god.

Mr. Pelster is a really hard teacher, but you'll learn a lot from him. It's nearly impossible to get an A in his class, but if you take AP English, you'll do well on the AP exam.

Mr. Pelster is a good English teacher, but takes his passionate hatred of History too far into his class. If you take this class, do not ever mention or write about History, You have been warned.

Each day when I ask my son what he learned in school, he always tells me what he learned in Mr. Pelster's class. I've never met him, but he sounds like a great guy with a very interesting personality.

Although it may take a few months to get used to his teaching style and personality, he's brilliant and very personable (once you get to know him). Best teacher I've had.

Pelstinator is the sickest teacher period. He dispells every youthful hope any of his students have of the world being a good place. He is so cool.
