The best man and teacher I ever had and will have.Everything he does has a lesson behind it. One time at Harvard while on a tour he gave a speech and a lesson to the tour group about Harvard and select buildings on campus. Harvard doesn't teach Col. Gesker... Col. Gesker teaches Harvard. His tests are impossible, but when it comes to the AP exams... your good to go! Sophomore class 10 and junior class 11. If you need to interview someone... ask him!

One of the best teachers at PVI.The way he teaches makes you think and you actually learn. He is also very fair. If you get a bad grade he will meet with you and tell you what you did wrong

Had him for US History as a junior during the 05-06 school year. My single fav history teacher at PVI, made history come alive! He will give you an extra 25 points on tests, what he calls a “Christi

Best teacher I've had - interesting that some say differently - there were apparently not ready to learn - you are required to think for yourself a bit(imagine that). Awesome guy who is tough - but FAIR!

Col. Gesker will do whatever he can to make sure you understand what is going on. He will make you a part of his classroom family and will NEVER forget you. He'll mail you congratulatory letters to your HOUSE if you do something really cool. And he loves brownies, if you're looking for a good christmas idea!

Mr. Gesker is definetly a cool guy, but as a teacher, he's lacking. I learned more about U.S. History on my 1st day of AP US Govt class with Mrs. Becker

Mr. Gesker's classes can be hard, but you gotta expect that with an AP teacher. He tries his utmost to help you understand things. (Also, Fri. movies rock!)

Mr. Gesker is by far the best teacher you can get at Paul VI. He's a VMI graduate who is smarter than Einstein when it comes to history. Don't let him down

Probably the greatest teacher at PVI. Be forwarned, his favorite book of the Bible is Sirach, don't laugh during it. George W. Wickersham and the Cross of Gold.

Most amazing teacher ever! Hard, but fair, and is the most creative man (how many teachers play music as part of a history lesson?)
