I had him for 3 or 2 consecutive years in High School, i honestly think he got tired of me. But he was a great educator, and honestly if it wasn't for my odd behavior (cutting and dealing with parents divorce) in my Senior year I wouldn't have anything negative to say of him. He's really is one of the cool kids which makes it annoying to be honest, but treated every student the same when it came to grades and he really went out of way to get his students ahead. Squirrels. he was nuts tho.

Best teacher anyone can ever have. The class is challenging but worth it. I agree, he's way overqualified for high school. He's the kind of teacher that changes your life, and he definitely changed mine. Hilarious in so many ways, I don't think I've ever looked forward to a class more than I looked forward to his. "Monkeys, squirrels and batman" Love you Weigel!

I will miss this guy. Weigel really was one of the smartest teachers in the school and I'm surprised he wasn't an AP. He had an interesting attitude and was cool in general. His AP class was hard at times but he did his best to help us get through it. His sense of humor is great as well. He also tried to make the class as interesting as possible. He was there for us. RUBBER BANDS..

Pretty good teacher. He was a bit strict and hard to get along with at times, hard to understand his charisma. Otherwise, he really knew his stuff and truly CARED about his students. He came into work everyday with a goal, a goal to work with his students, control the classroom, and teach us. I really appreciated that. He had respect but sometimes he would make arrogant remarks. He's a nice guy, decent sense of humor, and forgiving. It was fun when the time came to go to English class.
