herricks has really lost one of its best teachers when mr. jacobsen retired. sociology was the best class with him....he's not only engaging in the classroom but so interesting to talk to in person

Jacobsen is such a great teacher! She is very fair in grading and also very understanding. Pay attention in class because she is fast at the honors level and go to extra help. STUDY for all her quizzes and tests because they are hard. She will ask about the smallest details. Overall, this class was fun and challenging.

Mr. Jacobsen was (and still is) one of my favorite teachers. He is brutually honest, but only to offer a different perspective. Sparked my interest in sociology after his class.
