Mr Jacoby isn't for the weak minded and ignorant and easily offended students. I had him for computer applications and he was the most wonderful teacher I could ever ask for. He goes off topic but every topic he talks about TEACHES you something. He's very opinionated and I may not agree with his opinions but you don't have to, he teaches you to be tolerant. He's hands down the most touching teacher you can have. He will teach you more than any teacher here.
Don't take his class. He makes you feel depressed and embrassed whenever you do something that he consider disrespectful or irresponsible, even when it's not. Also he never teaches during class except telling his experience stories that are just plain boring and useless. I took Business Law and I had to study the textbook multiple times before the tests because he never taught us anything. I do not recommend Mr. Jacoby if you're planning on taking electives at Walnut High.
Self-fulfillment and raising the bar. Two things high school students don't often think about and usually don't want to..but being in Jacoby's classroom for Business Law and Business Management/entrepreneurship has led me to actually think about my personal character and about the world outside of school. His class is for the brave, the strong, for the students who want MORE from school and in life. If you are lazy or uninterested, this is NOT the place for you. Don't be like that...be better.
I LOVE JACOBY I took ALL his classes Personal Finance- Boring(Dave Ramsey videos everyday), Business Law- Fun (you work in groups for the test), Computer Apps- Fun (lots of typing and group activities), and Business Management- Fun ( read articles and Wall Street Journal). He gives a lot of good business advices. He's just a really cool teacher. HE teaches through his stories and personal life and if you want an A and get into a business major GET JACOBY!!!
I had him for business law and computer applications. The business law tests aren't hard- just study the book! You work in groups all the time, but don't be shy. Computer applications is a breeze if you know how to type and know English pretty well. Jacoby is not for everyone. He is not for the weak. He teases people CONSTANTLY. If you want a teacher who just gives notes, take another teacher. Jacoby teaches through stories and strays off from the topic. Take caution!
Terrible teacher. Talks too much and is extremely rude. He thinks he knows everything about anything as if he were some god when he teaches an optional elective at a high school. Really annoying and unnecessarily slams the board to get attention. Mumbles when he's teaching. Don't take his class
I never had him as a teacher, but I got pretty close with him as he is the FBLA adviser. He is not devoted to this club at all and actually tries to prevent our chapter from reaching new heights. He will hate you if you don't take his classes. He will hate you if you don't know business terminology. He will hate you if you are not 700% dedicated to business in your future.
Jacoby is one of those sarcastic teachers who loves to call idiot students out on their mistakes and blunders. he does teach good life lessons and his stories are very helpful in life. in my opinion he's a great teacher. the difficulties of his classes very because he teaches a million subjects. personal finance is really easy, and business law is alot harder. his test vary but he scarcely gives hw. so if you like hearing idiots get ripped on, with little hw, average tests, take his class
I had personal finance with Jacoby and to anyone considering taking that class, DON'T DO IT. He strays off topic so much and even though he is very experienced in the business world, he can't get his knowledge across. In other words, you don't learn anything.
mr. jacoby is a great teacher and all and is really nice. he really cares about his students and tries to be a good humorous teacher. but the problem is that he isn't a funny teacher. he does't know how to interact with students he has no charisma whatsoever. he thinks he knows everything about life and he acts as if he knows everything about everyone and gives you advice on life that you seriously don't really need at this point. his class was not fun and super boring. i fell asleep all the time and he alw
I have to say that he is a great teacher. He has his own way of teaching, and its really interesting. But I think he has to be more careful with his interactions with his students. He has to set the limits, since nobody would know if you do not put it out here! Overall, he's ok. You learn a lot from the stories he tells. :)
he taught me how to type fast in key boarding and overall a good teacher...just talked too much once in a while
he's cool, most of the time he was preaching to our class though and it got sorta annoying.. ehh
Jacoby is a cool teacher. He has great enthusiasm when he teaches.
