Gonzo is a hella chill dude, and is super fun to talk to and hang out with. Clausi is definitely the better teacher out of the two, but Gonzo still has some interesting input into the class with his iconic lecturing voice. While he does tend to play favorites, it's pretty easy to get on his good side if you joke around with him. You don't have to be the smartest one for Gonzo to like you, as long as you talk during class. He reminds me of Nerf, because he tends to like more confident kids.
Super nice teacher, however, super unclear on giving directions and not very clear in his explanations
Treat him like a person and he will treat you like one too...Meaning you have to talk to him, check if the work you have done as homework is good before turning it in and laugh at his jokes to be polite. PS He is very loud and emotional.
he has definitely upped his difficulty from the past couple of years, most of his projects are pretty much based on formatting and how neat and pretty and how much time you spend on it rather than the content. If you wanna major in art then take his class. He actually teaches the importance of art and photos in history very well together. Funny guy, chill person, super loud.
This is a continuation of the last rating, I ran out of room. He tries very hard to act like mr.wilson and fails. If you ask him a question he is no help and plays lots of favorites in grading. He calls on the same stupid ppl in class that takes 5 years for them to answer a question. The only good thing about him is he takes late work without a penalty but other wise has no knowledge of history, wastes time in class with useless assignments. The only good thing about the class is clausintzer.
Gonzo is the best. Very loud and entertaining, but he pulls his tests questions out of nowhere. His projects are all about the creativity and the aesthetic look it has.
Gonzo's a really fun teacher who likes to joke around a fair amount of the time, which greatly helps during History lectures. I could not stand any sort of history class except Gonzo's. Of course, he
Did a lot less teaching than Claus, but great teacher to talk to not about school. Very creative and helped with the Dive project a lot.
he's the only reason I stayed in Amstud. If it weren't for him I wouldn't have been able to put up with Clausnitzer. She's soooooooooooooooooooooo mean!
Honestly the most disorganized teacher I've ever had.
He is an awful teacher. He is unclear and plays favorites like no teacher i've ever seen. If you're not his favorite, you can do a perfect essay or projects, and still end up with a B
chill and funny. good teacher. but shouldn't be grading essays...
he is the best teacher ever. world history is manageable just pay attention.
i have to say gonzo is so easy...esp in american studies..plus he is very funny...but he gives us way to much reading!!!!
hilarious but not too organized. interesting lectures lotsa note taking dont fall asleep or else. he is not afraid to fail you and he will most likely blurt your grade out in class
Hard teacher, but cool, I guess. Too many projects, too much talking.
graduated from hhs in 03 and i can still say he is probably the worst teacher i've ever had! don't take his class if you can avoid it.
i believe gonzo was the best lecturer/teacher because he was actually serious, yet lectured in such a great and attentive way. u never can fall asleep!
Finally a serious teacher. His class is hard, but he teachers in an awesome way. He's also hilarious, but if you don't participate he won't appreciate you.
Essay by athlete or popular student = A, the exact same paper by anyone else=C, enough said.
I learned a lot in his class even though i got a B. He goes deeper than most history teachers and actually understands WHY we do history in the first place.
He is really cool, but his class is really hard and we do too much reading and too much note taking.
teaches like we're in college (only lectures), but i guess it just prepares us. Sometimes very fun, but sometimes very boring.
your really cool but could give less reading assignments cuz it gets boring, tip; do your work!
loved his class! GONZO IS THE COOLEST...and i think our class came up with that name...we were his guinea pigs second year of his teaching.
Gonzy is the best!!!! His class is super hard but it's possibly the best class at HHS. It is fun and you do more writing then I've ever done in English.Go Gonzy
Gonzo was the best teacher I had at Homestead. I am finishing my sophomore year in college now, and his class is one of the few fond memories I have of HHS.
had his class last year, pretty interesting, but that was because of the strange people in the class. he's cool, but sometimes favors the popular people.
cool guy, good teacher, cool teaching methods, grades hard but you learn a lot in his class
Very cool teacher, wish more teachers were like him =)
Well, Gonzo is a good teacher that he has opened a new type of teaching history to me. However he givses out hecka hard projects, like research papers he interacts with his students and knows what its like to be one of us. He is almost like a student
Gonzy!! I might have had you for the pin. but you taught me a lot. Lets say, I have gotten more from you then almost anyother teacher. You and Narf. should try the pin. again.
Gonzo, you talk too loud, i have you first, and i cant sleep!!! =(
