Mr. Shipley is AWESOME for senior year (hon mod world). Especially when you're deep in senioritis, he will understand. Read the packets and you'll do fine on the test. It's okay to turn in stuff late. He never holds grudges.

He is fun, yet not. I just do not understand why everyone thinks he is amazing. Sure, he is cool, but he can be really annoying.

Great guy and good teacher. He cares for his students and teaches more than history. He talks fun and freedom but stresses the importance of responsibility in life, yet he does so from a friend pov an

One of my best teachers in HS. I didn't realize how much I really learned til I got to college and knew stuff the other kids didn't that I had learned in his class. Plus, it was fun.Thanks Mr Shipley!

An easy A because he lets you turn in work late and lets you take tests on a later date if you didnt study. Easiest teacher I had throughout High school

He's really awesome. Unit tests can be a little challenging, but a lot of the questions come from the online tests that the book offers. AMAZING coach, very understanding, and helpful even if he pries into love lives.
