I took Zameroski for his Film as Literature class second semester of my senior year. Let me tell you, he is one of the most caring teachers you will ever meet. He genuinely cares about the well-being of the students which is incredible. I like to think I am pretty good at English, however not incredible. I got an A is almost all my other English classes, however I struggled to pass this class. He is an extremely tough grader and has very difficult tests. Not for "average' students. Smart Guy tho
BEST TEACHER EVER! Although he is incredibly strict (and mean at times), I couldn't have asked for a better English teacher. With his teachings, my writing skills have improved tenfold. He tries to appear scary because he likes being mysterious, but he really has a heart of gold and cares for his students more than most teachers do.
Mr. Zameroski is a superb teacher. His class is definitely difficult, but if you work hard, then you could pull through with a low A or high B. He grades his essays very hardly. I got a D on my first essay, but I still ended up getting an A in his class. GETTING AN A IN HIS CLASS IS NOT IMPOSSIBLE. YOU MIGHT STRUGGLE, BUT IT'S DEFINITELY DOABLE. I HIGHLY RECOMMEND HIS CLASS :)
This class is 2x harder than an AP class, and only counts as an honors class. Great guy, but grades way too hard. Most of the information on exams is not covered. He will definitely help you improve your writing, but there is just too much work. I recommend not taking his honors English class, if you want help on your writing, print out the papers on his website.
Honestly, there's a big fuss that he grades hard, but I think his grading is appropriate. Just don't be lazy and you will be fine.
Awesome teacher and definitely makes a difference in your writing skills. Super tough grader on essays and super hard/long exams. His room is always 57294238 degrees &humid but his class isn't too boring. Try your best, participate in class and he will like you.
His class is the hardest in all of Valencia. Most people pull out by second semester if they survive that long, but it's worth staying in. He'll call you kiddo if he likes you, even if you didn't pull an A in his class. His tests are difficult and he's brutal with essay gradings. Projects will destroy your grade if you don't do your best. You will learn more than English in his class and he does care, even if it doesn't feel that way all the time. Work hard and you'll be fine.
hey there it's bobby z! the best! his class is the HARDEST. you can get an A or B on tests if you study really hard. expect a C, maybe a B on essays. the projects are horrific but an A is possible. but don't switch out. the z-man is the most knowledgable person i've met to this day. his insight is remarkable, he's so SMART, and in his words, "you learn more than just english in his class." get to know him. he's very interesting. and i'm terrified of him but he's the best teacher i'll ever have.
Learned so much from bobby z!! Such an awesome, smart teacher. Don't expect to do incredible in honors english, but expect to learn a ton.
Okay teacher, but gives a lot of pop quizzes and his projects and essays are annoying. Another thing that I did not like was how if you have him in the morning he'll yawn really loudly and it's really annoying. It's really hard to get an A so that is another thing that bothers me about him.
He is a really hard teacher. You are super smart is you are able to get an A in his class. But he is extremely helpful. My writing got a million times better after his class. Yesterday for school we were supposed to dress up for Halloween, and I kid you not at least 50 of the kids who had him as a freshman for Honors English last year dressed up like him. All we had to wear was a flannel, jeans, and a baseball cap. Some wore glasses and a couple even drew on his beard and mustache
He's amazing! Super weird and has off days (for the sake of your sanity never look up The Bartender) but is an absolute genius. I've learned so much, both about English and about life. He is a super critical grader, but work hard and you'll manage to scrape by with an A----. He's really cool though, has great advice, and I look forward to his class each day.
I have only been in Mr. Zameroski's class for a couple of weeks so far, and he's already one of my favorite teachers of all time. He is extremely knowledgeable and actually cares about each student. He makes a hard class interesting.
I was a student of Mr. Zameroski last year, when I was in 9th grade. He taught us a lot of useful advice, both for school and life in general. At the beginning of the year, I had thoughts of dropping out of the class because it was nothing like I've ever experienced before. I'm absolutely certain that you, incoming students, will have frequent thoughts about leaving Bobby Z. My advice - DON'T.
Btw - you're assigned an awesome and fun Romeo and Juliet project in the second semester! #worthit
Mr Z's class is definitely difficult. Although when I was in his class I wished I wasn't, I learned so much from his class. Many people will tell you to drop his class, but honestly don't. He is such a funny teacher and I really enjoyed his class.
Even if you dont want to, take his class anyway. Totally worth it. Bobby Z is my fave
Slams your essays. Get good test grades. Don't royally screw up your projects. You will get an A------. Most of his test questions are discussed in class or online on sites like Gradesaver. Some grammar questions/vocab are in the reading textbook for like Romeo and Juliet. Suffrage AND women's rights for the Doll's House free response.
I love Mr. Z!! Hands down my favorite teacher. He's a very hard grader on essays so DO NOT expect an A on them. You will most likely get a C on them (highest i got was a B). I got an A first semester (barely) and a high B second semester. His class is very difficult to achieve an A in but it is totally worth taking because he is such a great teacher and you will learn so much, especially about writing essays. If there was one class that I could retake, it would be Zam's class. Gotta love Bobby Z
"Hey it's Bobby Z!" Loved Mr. Z when I had him. My favorite teacher of all time! His class will be a nightmare if you don't try, so just do work and put in effort and you should get through it alright :)
Mr. Z is an awesome guy. "Hi Bobby here!" you know what time talking about if you had him haha. i have learned so much in his class. he may have been hearder than margrave but i don't care because he has taught me so much. He is funny and knows how to teach. He really cares that we learn. He will do anything to help his students learn. if you get him your lucky so be grateful. challenging and worth it in the end.
Mr. Zameroski was the best!!! His class was extremely difficult, but soooo worth it. He's funny, cool, a little moody sometimes, but an overall great teacher. He assigned fun projects and assignments all year long. His tests were probably the hardest part of his class. I was happy with a C on one of his tests. But still, he is a fantabulous teacher.
Mr. Zam is awesome! He has taught me more than anyone else in high school. His class is difficult because you have to work for your grade. He's a great and funny guy as well as a top notch teacher. Wish I could have him all of high school.
ZAM IS THE BOMB! I have learned more from him than any other teacher and his class was always interesting. Yes its difficult but if you put in the work it's not that bad. He is a very funny and helpful teacher and I wish I could take his class again
I personally didn't learn much from him, all I learned is that teachers can be wrong. He makes a mistake, he thinks he is right. I challenged him on quite a few test questions, other teachers and the internet agreed with me, and he thinks he's righ
Although Mr.Z is a super nice guy, he's very intimidating and do NOT expect an A in his class. Although you learn lot you are always on the edge of a terrible grade.
Great teacher, great person, difficult class. I learned so much, although A's in his class aren't common. Tests are difficult so study hard and he cracks down hard on essays and projects but GREAT experience. Lays a great foundation in english.
Um tbh i HATE ZAMEROSKI! He doesnt care about his students he doesnt care whether ur failing or not hes just like whatever im just doin my job. I got a frikin D+ in his class and was crying when i got an F on the final. I got an A in regular english though second semester with Mr. Limon :) And im taking summer school rite now and i have an A with Mrs. Itaya :D she rocks! But anyways if u really wanna be in Mr. Z's class be prepared to work ur butt off ndspendurtime reading and writing and crying
Mr. Zameroski is a difficult teacher but he is willing to help you if you are struggling. Its not the easiest class but will improve your english skills greatly.
Mr. Zameroski's class was a very interesting class for me. Being that he teaches an Honors class, it is expected that his class is very challenging. There are a lot of difficult tests, projects, and long essays in his class, but he does does expect you do it all on your own. He gives great guidance and many pages of notes before each test. I enjoyed the class and feel I learned a lot about English and the outside world. I would recommend this class to anyone.
Rumors spread around about Mr. Zameroski, but I just finished a great year with him. His grading system is difficult to cope with, but once you get the hang of his style he is a great teacher. After experiencing a full year with him, I kind of wish I could have another year with him because he taught me a lot of new things.
I loved this class and this teacher. He is soooo helpful and i will use the things i learned for the rest of my student years. Be prepared to work extremely hard. I am getting a low b when I usually get an a in english but its worth it. You'll love him he's hilarious. Good Luck!
Probably one of the most difficult classes i have taken, but he is hilarious and really knows how to teach.
Although his class was the hardest I have ever taken, I hate to say it but I learned alot of valuable information in his class.
His class is one of the hardest I have ever taken. But I learned a lot while in his class, and feel that he sets you up to do well on every essay you need to write ever. He is hard but is one of my favorite teachers I have ever had.
This is a very challenging class. Just be prepared to have your essay shredded.
Mr. Zameroski is an extremely difficult teacher but he is one of my favorites. I have excelled so much from taking his class and am a much better student thanks to him.
The class was extremely difficult but somehow I managed to pull through. Over all it was a fantastic learning experience.
Mr. Z is a genius. However, his class is ridiculously hard and many people had no clue what the freak he was talking about half the time. And personally, i was deadly afraid of him. The setting is ridiculously scary in his class because he will literally tell you to explain some in depth thing to the class at random times..not even when your raising your hand!!! it literally seems like hes just trying to embarress you. It got to the point that i was literally shaking whenever i entered his class
When your in this class, you will never be able to realize who you have teaching you. This man is possibly a genius. His writing is perfection and his literary analysis is unbelievable. Literally, he is a GENIUS. Thank your lucky stars that this man is teaching you.
Not a bad teacher. Hard class, fun stories. Just right at the middle of bad and good. I'm in the middle of 1st semester.
This Class Sucks! Never take honors english! He sucks at grading becuase he doesnt read it and just gives you an F.
I absolutely LOVE Mr. Zameroski!!!! all the freshman on the first day are like he's hard or he's mean! YOU ONLY HAD HIM FOR AN HOUR HOW DO YOU KNOW????!!! Ya he gives a lot of projects but rarely home
he's an amazing teacher, probably one of my favorites. a lot of people complain that he's really hard, but that's the reason why i like him. his class was a challenge, but i really learned a lot.
Had him for Hon 9 and hated it. Took him again for film senior year and loved it. Says 4 essays but only had 2 and one extra credit one we did. Hard at first but gets easier. Take it. Great class.
okay everyone thinks he's great BUT in my case he's kinda strict; i hate his pop quizzes and tests but i did learn a lot on how to write a proper essay; anyways he's okay not bad/good mediummmmmm
Mr. Zameroski was my English teacher both in 9th and 12th grade and I will never forget him. To this day when looking back on my High School years I think fondly of the time I had learning from him.
he is a good teacher with a really hard course but he teaches u well and its about what u learn and not the grade he will explain it on his own time
insanely hard but his class is awesome and you learn so much!
He's okay as a teacher but manipulates his students with threats of homework. Honestly not a great impression for incoming freshmen.
Extremely hard and awesome at the same time. I don't mind the hardness because the grade is weighted.
Great teacher! Teaches you how to write so well and is pretty chill.
Will throw chunks of Kevin Nnuro flesh at children if they are asleep.
Mr.Zameroski is amazing! I had him for honors english in 9th grade. Your essay writing really improves. It's hard to get an A, but it's definitely worth it to take the class. It helps a lot for later.
had him for honors english a few years back. still one of my fav teachers. you either love him or hate him during the year, but after you're going to miss him the last 3 years of high school. mr z ftw
you either love him or you hate him. either way, good luck :P
Great guy. Sarcastic at times, and a really tough grader (especially when it comes to essays). I learned a lot and I would recommend his class to anyone willing to put in some extra work.
i have him in the early morning, so i think he forgets to tell us stuff, and consequently, my class misses things. Also, written directions would be nice! true, essays are so easy in other classes now
great teacher, but it is impossible to get an A in his honors 9 English class.
he is rly harsh but if u can get past that u rly learn alot and its probably the first time i actually learned something. i like it
the best english teacher i have ever had. hes really tough, but its manageable to get an A or B in his class.
Best. Teacher. Ever. Made a girl cry when he analyzed "Twilight" for themes, and deemed it "crap". Bravo, well done.
Mr. Z's class was a re-ocurring nightmare. He brainwashed the kids into thinking that his meaness was to help us. Few would actually get A's in his class. His short-man's complex was really bad too!
He was one of the cool english teachers that I had. Just don't make him mad and your good
One of the BEST English teachers at VHS. Tough, but good!
You wanna do good in high school? Then take this class. This man knows what he is doing.He teaches essay strucre in away that will be useful all through out highschool. Love the man!
What a teacher! He is a god among men! His knowlege floats above the clouds! To bad he looks like a weasel. Pop goes the Zameroski!
my MOST FAVORITE teacher at school. after you go through his class, you can go through any honors&AP english class.
super sarcastic. doesnt accept laziness. of you dont get his humor and the way he teaches you will hate him. i think hes the best. lots of work
Tough class, but it feels like you can do anything once you get through it. He tells the best stories. He claims you'll forget him in a few years, but that's impossible.
i hate this teacher more than any of the teachers at this school. sarcastic, but just rude sarcasm. not easy, nor helpful. wayy too hard or projects and homework. DO NOT TAKE THIS CLASS. just dont.
Ha at the freshmen who think he is hard now..two years ago and before that he gave way more projects that were beyond time consuming. Great teacher though
hahaha zameroski. i remember once he kicked me out of class for breathing heavily, but it's all good. he's a wonderful teacher and although he may not act it, cares for his students.
His class is practically impossible so you hate him while your there. but once your done with freshman year H english you luv him . just don't ask him about bartenders in class cuz he'll get mad
When you think, "How could he be such a hard teacher, and yet everyone likes him?!" Well, it's true, but you'll just have to take his class and see. His work is just challenging. The only possible way
ZAMMY! he's soo cool, you hate him when your in his class, but when you're not in his class anymore, he's totally chill. love him
he was really weird but kind of in a good way i guess. his class may have ruined my life as long as i was there but i did learn from him so i guess that's good.
best honors english teacher in the school. had him for H english freshman year. VERY hard, but you learn SO much in terms of essays/critical thinking. worth the suffering throughout the year by far.
Honestly, he was the best teacher I've had. He may be challenging, but he definitely knows his stuff. He will push you to your working limit. Don't procrastinate =P
Mr. Z is the best teacher I have ever had. The only way you would not like him is if you didn't want to learn, be challenged! He is HARD but gives you everything you need to succeed!
get him for freshman honors english, then do w/e u want in highschool, youll probably have learned more from a year in his class than the next 3 years in highschool, makes you think.
