So funny, engaging, easy but challenging, approachable, and amazing. You can tell he likes teaching and knows what he is talking about
Fuuun class! :D
I had Mathis for my AP Gov. class in freshman year. He was easily one of the best teachers I've had, and made lessons easily understandable. Most of our grade was comprised of oral presentations, such as Model UN summit meetings, mock trials in the "Mathis Court or Appeals", and debates. The exams, while very difficult, relied on the text book and enforced that you did the reading. I loved his class and I learned a ton.
he is the funniest teacher I ever had
He is an awesome teacher!! I love how the allows us to be very loud and vocal :) Its very cool of him :D And hes just such a chill teacher so easy to be around. and he really helps you if you need it ! :)
Mr. Mathis is the man, i suck at NSL, but the guy works with you. He is extremely relaxed about most assignments and is just overall a funny man.
He's amazing. He's the perfect balance of chill and actually decent teacher. I like that he really helps you if you care about the class and he ignores the people who don't. Especially if he likes you, he'll always be there and he's a chill guy.
Mr. Mathis!!! He is seriously awesome, and a fantastic swing dancer. His AP NSL class is super fun and so is he!!
Awesome guy, definately one of the friendliest teachers. Probably not the best teacher either but as long as you put in effort he is certainly a good enough teacher to get you As
He gets a bit distracted, but he's the nicest guy and very approachable. You have to be very self-motivated in his class, though. Read the textbook. Also, I wish he'd finish his sentences?
Mr. Mathis was my favorite teacher. He was funny and helpful and really encouraged everyone to get an A. He is just flat out awesome!
Best teacher all year. Felt like he was funny knew the subject actually cared about the subject. 4th quarter is the best, lots of current events and discussions/debates.
great teacher, none of the other NSL teachers compare. makes the class really easy for those who dont understand, and his failure at comedy makes the class all the more interesting
Really nice guy who hands out plenty of A's....he only falls short on comedy (he tries hard but usually falls flat on his face).
mr.mathis is probably one of the nicer male teachers at whitman. he'll totally forgive you for skipping class, he basically tells you exactly what the tests are going to be on and lets you take group quizzes etc. take his class and you'll totally get a good grade. hes an awesome guy!
Like any nsl class, a lot of success in the class is based on natural aptitude for the subject and background knowledge. Really nice, sorta funny, do the work and don't disrespect the class. The only way to get him angry is to be unprepared, but when he gets mad, he gets mad.
tests are impossible, but he's still worth it. you WILL succeed and learn a lot if u keep doing the reading/notes/terms. way better than the other 2 teachers - go mathis! GET HIM!
A fabulous teacher if you're disciplined enough to do the reading/notes on your own. Otherwise, it's a major problem. But overall, an awesome teacher!
kinda hard......good guy (tries very hard for laughs) ((he gets them sometimes))
Mathis might not "teach" as in give notes constantly, but at least he is a fun teacher and has discussions often
for anyone who said he was a good teacher, something must be wrong with you. he CANNOT teach if his life depended on it. all we do is debate about useless info.
He's a cool guy, but his tests are really hard. Most of the class is independent learning and all we do is have discussions.
Kinda in the middle. Fun to work with, but cant teach well. Gives you a lot of easy points.
this guy is awesome...always involved and has humor at hand.
Mr. Mathis is, without a doubt, the best, coolest teacher I have ever had. A little goofy, but nonetheless, he is the man.
coolest teacher ever and quite the basketball player too
Mathis is the greatest teacher ever. Will be hard if you dont work though.
REALLY smart but doesn't teach that well...really nice and loves teaching
the NSL guru - an enlightening and inspiring teacher!
Mathis is the best teacher I've had at WWHS-No Joke!
Very hard, but he knows a lot. He's very understanding also.
Mr. Mathis is the man -- He might be hard, but I've learned so much.
he's funny and nice, 1st semester NSL's the best, espcially student congress
