Mr. Van Rossum is an incredible teacher who totally changed history for me. Before walking into his class, I dreaded history, but he made it something to look forward to. His analogies are super helpful and wickedly clever. He also gives a decent amount of extra credit which is nice. Two things that I loved about his class were. 1) Everything was a simple-point system; 2) The class was all about the discussion. In fact, he NEVER asks a date question! However his tests are hard - so study!
Honestly one of the best teachers at Beverly. Mr. V is an amazing teacher that really cares about his students. He is passionate about history. Class discussions are interesting and he explains things using real life examples to help us understand. There is a super reasonable amount of homework and class work. Thanks Mr. V!
He is the only hard teacher I would recommend because he truly cares about history
Mr. V is honestly one of the best teachers in school. I had him for AP Euro last year, and I still remember so much of what we learned — rare for a history class. He's clear and engaging, and always very flexible when it comes to tests or homework. I got A's both semesters and a 5 on the test — but more importantly, I feel like I learned a lot and now have a stronger understanding of modern politics and the world around me.
Awesome teacher. Very nice. Really passionate about his subject. The most understanding teacher.
I'd still take Van Rossum if I got an F. #favoriteteacher
Doesn't have the best teaching skills and on the tests, he gives u questions that you never even learned. Overal though he's a nice person.
really cool, chill guy who knows his stuff
So awesome............. Best history teacher ever...............
Best teacher i have ever had. Such a nice person and he is very intelligent and is a great role model. Do your work study in advance and you'll get an A
Mr. Van Rossum has to be the greatest teacher I have ever had. He's super nice and just a brilliant guy. He's not only a teacher but also a mentor. His AP Euro class is challenging but if you really do your reading, you wont have too much trouble on his tests.
greatest teacher at beverly (even though that isnt saying much) he is amazing and is very good at teaching
Coolest teacher in the school. Makes you learn without even realizing that you did. He knows his stuff really well
I had this guy for freshman history in 97-98. He was cool and i learned alot. I remember he had this cool home made jepardy game he used. Not sure if he still has it.
Great in every aspect of teaching. I got a bad grade but it was sure fun!
Amazing teacher and a fun class. But..its WAY too hard. V needs to give more points out-palmer is so dense for sophomores especially, he needs a way to boost grades
Loved his class. Hands down one of my favorite teachers ever. Never seen him mad ever (except once, which was a BIG incident)
He is a great teacher with a great teaching style... the class is hard but the teacher is great
most incredible teacher i have ever, and will ever have
Without a doubt the best and most influential teacher you will ever have. His course is actually fun. You begin to understand politics and society more and more everyday. Without his class i'd ditch.
Difficult, but definitely worth the C. i learned a lot and am still learning. V is the best teacher in the school, and definitely the coolest
best teacher I've ever had in my entire life, not even exaggerating.
consider yourself lucky if you have him at any point in your high school career, or if you become friendly with him.
amazing guy, amazing teacher, amazing amazing amazing.
What else is there to say that hasn't been said? There really isn't anything bad to say about him. If you follow politics and have a clue about current events, his AP class is even more fun.
BEST AP EURO TEACHER EVER. everyone got 4's and 5's..go to the review sessions religiously.
THIS MAN IS GOD...I dont even have him and hes an inspiration in my life. Best teacher and coolest guy
I don't think I have ever had a better teacher than this man.
great teacher makes class fun helps when lesson is unclear
omg best history teacher ever ..mr.v was amazing im gonna miss him soo much!!! he jokes around and its always hillarious! he treats u like an adult , test are deff hard , just no vocab and your set
2 words: The MAN. awesome teacher. everything makes sense when he says it. take his classes. he's funny. he's NOT boring. he's cool. he's challenging. he'll joke around and make fun of kids that he's "friends" with and its halarious. GREAT CLASS!
I would say very good teacher. You will learn so much from his class. Take him.
hes the best teacher in the school. hes the chillest teacher ever
the most amazing teacher you will ever have. he is so nice and friendly...and is still a great teacher!! you are so lucky to have this guy as a teacher. he's hard for ap euro..but you can't hate him cuz he's so nice.
I'm taking his AP Euro class and I've yet to be bored in his class. Even if all we're doing is taking notes, he makes you interested. True, the tests are hard, but it get's you to start studying.
I love this man! He is the best teacher ever, he prepares you 100% fot the AP and I looked forward to his class every day. Go to Europe with him in the Spring b/c the trip is a amazing.
funny, amazing class and teaching. good lectures. tests a bit difficult, but are prepared for AP. could use more dbq practice if you didnt get it in 9th. e.c. for winning jeopardy. great teacher.
easy world history class... hard ap euro class... great teacher and explains things easily!
If your smart enough and you don't mind some challenging tests, then Mr. V is quite possibly one of the best reasons to attend Beverly High. Tests are hard, but hes fair.
Mr. V is possibly the best teacher i've ever had. I'm not even that smart, but he finds a way to make me interested. Thanks for being one of the teachers that keeps me at school.
He's so amazingly helpful. I love him. His teaching makes so much sense. He really explains the concepts. You may feel bogged down by all the details of Palmer but it makes SO much sense once he explains it. AMAZING teacher.
Mr. V is AMAZING!!! If you are a good student and pay attention then you will do well. He has a very well structured class and is helpful. Aside from class, he is a very nice person. Always keeping you laughing and happy. He is the BEST choice for history. Those who have the :( are upset because they most likely didn't do well. Which is ok but don't blame the teacher. He is 110% amazing, helpful, smart, and nice. I would only hope everyone would be so lucky to take his class. :)
mr v is amazing to have for ap euro. best history teacher of all time! i loved him. he explains everything soooo well and he loves you if you participate. only bad thing is the tests. they are soo incredibly hard. but amazing teacher overall.
ya he's nice and ya he's helpful but ap euro was one of the hardest classes i've ever taken. his lectures are boring and his tests are unbelievable hard. just take a look at the textbook for this class and you'll see how much you're gonna have to read. and in the end all that reading ends up not helping at all.
i love mr. v! he's the best history teacher you can have at beverly. he makes boring material funnier. he teaches so well and really prepares you for AP euro. after taking him, AP euro test is much easier. you learn a lot from him. he's a really cool, nice guy. you should DEFINATELY take him. if you just try hard/keep up with your reading/participate, you can get an A.
Mr.V is amazing and THE best history teacher you could ever have. he makes the material interesting, relevant and easy to comprehend and always has a great attitude. AP Euro was an unforgettable class and I urge anyone who loves history to take it. I cant stress enought what a wonderful teacher he is.
This guy is cool. take him as much as possible. He knows how to teach, puts in extra hours for students and is passionate about what he teaches. Even if you hate history, take his class cuz he will make u love it. Very cool, up-to-date teacher.
Coolest teacher! He's funny and a great teacher as well. His class isn't too easy but it's definitly managable. He's great!
