Wish mr. Hoover wasn't leaving. He's one of my favorite teachers. Taught me so much about World history. Made the class so much fun.

Hoover made World Geo my favorite class last year. Hilarious guy that always played music and movies. I learned absolutely nothing, though. Had to learn everything on my own. Tests were pretty easy if you studied. I don't think we had one project the whole semester, and hardly any homework. Definitely recommend Hoover over Timmy Stevens any day! Just be prepared to sing "Blue Kangaroo" a lot, and don't get caught with your phone out x_x

Super easy class. You barely even learn history because he focuses entirely on teaching current events which is cool I guess but if you don't pay attention he yells at you. I had a hard time staying awake but you're blessed if you have him because it's so easy. NOTE- make sure to do every assignment because he puts about 10 things in for the whole year so if you have a bad grade on something, it affects your whole grade. Also his tests are exactly the study guide so if you study that- your good.

mr hoover is a very nice man and a good teacher, but he does not teach you what youre supposed to learn in his class. we mostly do whatever he wants like current events rather than history or what his class is, which is good to learn new things but not helpful for preparing you in the future history classes.

Mr. Hoover was my psychology teacher senior year, although he was funny and goofy most of the year, the final was a misleading test. It was 20% of our grade on things that we never spent time on in class. I am going to rate Mr. Hoover as a teacher who doesnt do anything in class but expects us to know the material we never learned.

Such a bright, intelligent teacher to have, and he's actually passionate about his job and what he teaches. You don't do many academic things in his class, but he teaches you to go with the flow and be happy.

Mr. Hoover is a fun and joyful teacher. The only downside is he doesn't teach you much. You get to watch movies and learn little songs. Unique and funny teacher.

Hoover is a really good guy, and as long as you have a friend with you to laugh at his ridiculous jokes with, his class is really fun. I used it as basically a study hall for the whole year.

Although the actual time he spends going over course material is low, he really makes a relaxed work enviornment where you focus more on individual topics and learn what you do learn very easily.
