One of the best teachers I had. His class most definitely prepared me for college and beyond.

Mr. Hess, most of the time, is a good teacher. But, alot of the time he lets his personal views and attitudes towards particular students influence the grade he gives them. He is a very funny, imature, and sometimes extremely unprofessional teacher.

Funny and obviously brilliant man, passionate about his subject, but relies far too much on rote memorization to "teach". A very friendly, intelligent & likable person; however, students end up memorizing factoids instead of learning history.

Wonderful person. Smart, funny, and - in spite of himself - nice at times. However, extremely inflexible as a teacher.

Mr. Hess graded those papers that way to see if all four cheaters would speak up. Three did. He did it on purpose. I was there when he did it.
