Mr. Armstrong encourages us to study hard to pass the AP exams. At times, he would actually choke up a little while with the thought of us either passing or failing it. It moved me because I strongly felt his genuine feelings towards this and inspired me to study. Also being a crybaby, sometimes even I would get choked up. His words would linger in my head and it changed my whole routine. I used to just go home and play video games for eight hours a day, but now I play harder in the library.
Best teacher in the world
Mr. Armstrong is an amazing teacher who will always consider his students' well being and education before anything else. He loves his subject and makes his students love it too. If you do all of the work, listen to his lectures, and come to him for advice or help, you'll be set for at least a 4 on the AP test and more knowledge than you had before.
He wasn't my favorite, but he was the single best teacher I've ever had. Not only is he great at teaching the material, but he has a profound care for his students I have never come across before nor since. A model for excellency, and an exemplar for what teaching is all about.
One of the greatest teachers I have ever had, and one of the very few who care about his/her students on such a personal level. In my opinion, the best teacher in Cerritos High School.
Reading all the comments, I'm not surprised that you all feel this way about Mr. Armstrong. I attended school with Steve. K through 12, and yes he has always been one of the nicest people I have ever known. You are all very lucky to have a teacher like him. Keep up the good work Steve. Hope to see you at our High School reunion after this summer.
HE IS LITERALLY THE BEST TEACHER AT CERRITOS HIGH!!! . ONE OF THE NICEST HUMAN BEINGS YOULL EVER MEET
He is literally my favorite teacher I love him so much :,-)
I cannot stress how wonderful this APUSH teacher is. He definitely knows his material and does everything he can to make sure that you know it too without boring you to death. I can honestly say, he managed to make history fun for me! Armstrong<3
best teacher i've ever had and that is extremely rare. i never get along with my teacher but he is willing to listen to you and help you with anything you need. amazing person and a teacher
This guy is a gift from god to APUSH students. He really supports you, cries with you, inspires you, and encourages you. He brings out his knowledge of American history in an entertaining and learning manner and encourages students to go out to the world and make use of it. HIs lectures are so inspiring (the ones about life) All you have to do is work hard and do your quality work (he is serious about copying) to get an A in this class. Former students revisit him cuz hes that much of a friend.
Mr. Armstrong cares a lot but after the AP test, the amount of work he gives is RIDICULOUS. It's an APUSH class not a MUN class so we don't need to know about stupid bonds and things.
Mr. Armstrong should get accolades and awards for being such a great teacher. He is one of the few teachers that I actually like in this school. He cares about his students, he makes history very interesting, and he is doing a great job in preparing us for the AP test. He truly does deserve recognition and better pay.
Mr. Armstrong is ridiculous! I love this teacher so much! He's great, best teacher I have every had. Though some of the work can be demanding, its what you should expect from an AP class. Overall, its been an amazing year!
The best best best teacher in the whole world. I think that he sets the perfect example of the perfect teacher! If you need help, he'll help you get through it, not yell at you or ignore you. It's almost impossible to get on his bad side, and he wants all his students get through life easily :D C/o 2013
He is very caring, very engaging, and very nice. He is definately among the best teachers I've ever had. The only problem I have is the amount of work we're often assigned. In my opinion, it's overkill. Still - I don't regret taking this class, and it isn't bad at all if you do much of the mountains of extra credit he gives. He's also very funny and is quite chill.
Mr. Armstrong is literally the BEST teacher here in CHS, love him so much!! So much EC every week it's almost impossible to get a B...
Awesome teacher! Even made me actually interested in history! Get him and you're in for an awesome year!
BEST TEACHER hands down. he's like my third grandfather...seriously. he's got a heart of gold, and is the TRUE definition of a teacher. others need to learn from him. i love him.
This teacher sincerely cares for his students and does a great job at teaching the course as well. Eccentric but funny, helpful, and 100% dedicated to making you a better person.
He is the best teacher you will EVER get. I have never loved a teacher before until this year. Do ALL the work and don't cheat. He cares about you more than you care about yourself.
there's no teacher out there that cares more about his students than mr. armstrong. i love this man and have so much respect for him!
Mr.Armstrong is THE BEST TEACHER IN THE WORLD!! the man deserves some sort of award for his effort and passion!!
If you do what he tells you to in his class, you will pass the test. He's too nice of a person to tell you to wake up if you're sleeping. Love this man. His class may be hard, but he compensates you with extra credit. Don't e
He's an excellent teacher with an enthusiastic personality that really makes his class exciting and interesting. He brings APUSH to a whole new level - an ability which is reserved only for the greatest teachers of all! Defin
mr. armstrong is one of the best history teachers ever :)
i loved mr s armstrong..hes just one of those teachers who really care about you and where u end up...but the class isnt easy if ur not willing to put the work in it but he does give a lot of ec.js read and ull be fine
He is the best teacher I ever had! He is way better than college professors! He has so much knowledge, and he really cares about his students. I had him for two yrs, I had so much fun, and I miss him!
Even though I didn't pass the AP test, I learned alot and I had fun.
Don't be lured into thinking extra credit will be the backbone of your grades, because in reality, your midterm/final is.
Euro sucked. If you asked him a question, he would expand on it so much and barely answer the question! He would talk about china o r japan. He needs to learn to be straightforward with the answers and less pessimistic or sarcastic with our dreams of going into UC's. ALSO, he crammed like 40 essays in less than a month; the month before AP testing. He should have given us essays to practice throughout the year, not 4 weeks before the APtest. nice guy and plays favorites.
Mr. S Armstrong has got to be one of the coolest and most fun teachers on campus. He's very helpful in explaining the chapters in AP Euro & he's SOOO FUNNY. At first, things may be rough in AP Euro, but as you progress, it's actually really easy (compared to all the other AP's I hear about). He speaks Chinese & Japanese (I think) which is really cool, and time just flies past in his class. I feel really lucky that I have him as a teacher because he's GREAT & fun! I always look forward for his class most. :)
For apush, he gives out a grip of extra credit. or atleast my year he did. Everyday after school he shows videos pertaining to us history and if you write notes on it - 10 ec points. If you play sports etc.. he'll find some way for you to accommodate. Overall, he really cares for his students and his material. He's really approachable as well. The tests are not THAT hard. You just need to READ and study.
He is the nicest teacher ever! Sometimes his lectures are boring. He's also supper smart!
He is one of the best teacher's I've had. He is a nice teacher that is friendly and easy to talk to. I enjoyed his class very much. You will only get a bad grade if you slack off.
He is the best teacher I have ever had. He genuinely cares about the students and knows his history. He is very open minded and compassionate. Only the lazy students give him bad ratings because they are stupid
he is a nice teacher but for some reason his lectures always involved his grandparents, great-grandparents, great-great-grandparents, which got annoying as the year passed by. moreover, he doesn't really teach so it is up to the student to find a way to study for the actual ap test.
He's very very very nice. the lectures are fun SOMETIMES. and the amount of extra credit is enough to keep you at a SOLID A the whole year. dont slack off and miss the opportunities. go to his after school videos, they help somewhat. he's happy wen you do good, but sad wen you don't
He's a very good teacher. The only thing is, that when he gets dissapointed, it hurts extra badly (only if you're in one of his good classes though =P) But overall, he can make lectures seem fun, Even if he does go off topic alot. xD He also gives alot of oppurtunity for extra credit, so utterly failing his class is just ridiculous.
One of my favorite teachers as a high school student. Such a great teacher :D
he is the awesomest teacher....he knows how to teach...n he's one of the few teachers that actually can talk to students and is fun outside being a teacher
goodteacher,makes class fun, helps u stay awake, hard class but good teacher. giveslots of extra credit opportunity. pay attention in class. u want his trust. do not ever cheat. or u wont get that letter of recomendation.. :P
Great teacher. I love it when he acts and sing to the class. He really likes to teach and interact with the students. He's a really smart guy...knows what he's talking about when teaching.
Always there to help students after school and holds very effective after school sessions. he is one of those very rare teachers who actually care about his students!
Best and most effective teacher i have ever had! hes the only teacher i know who is willing to stay after school and help his students to the best of his abilities. you rock!
Mr. Armstrong is the coolest teacher ever! he genuinely cares about his students, and it helps that he's really really funny too!!!!!!!!!!!
probably one of the few teachers tat r actualy concerned bout the students, n his positiv atitudes truly invigorate his students
I love Mr. Armstrong. He's really funny and he truly cares about our grades. He is really helpful too
Mr armstrong is the COOLEST teacher ever to teach at cerritos. he really cares and he's terribly funny too!!!
One of the greatest teachers at Cerritos High ever. He really cares about his students, asks them about life in general, and makes an effort to make sure his students are LEARNING.
hes SO nice.. im in APUSH right now. and hes just so cool. =] hes funny too. he really cares about you and wants you to succeed. thats a real teacher. he alwyas helps you too.
He is the coolest, nicest, sweetest man ever! I absolutely love his class!!!! GO ARMSTRONG :D
He's a very easygoing man. He's too lenient at times. He let's you turn in your assignments late and still counts as full credit. That's just sometimes.
Mr. Armstrong's the nicest, easy, and funny teacher I've had! He really cares for his students and takes the time to help us understand the lesson.
he's one of my favorite teachers! very cool and fun guy BUT he goes off topic a LOT!!
Hes a very funnie teacher n' makes da klass very enjoyable! one of my fav teacher in CHS!
Ah, Armstrong. Good lectures. Funny jokes. Good man.

MR ARMSTRONG SHOULD TEACH FOR ALL 4 YEARS OF CHINESE HE WOULD BE SOOOOOOOOOOOOO MUCH BETTER THAN THE OTHER CHINESE TEACHER
i dont needa say anything cause everyone already said what i was gonna say. AWESOME TEACHER! :-) million thumbs up
He was alright. I don't think he liked me much, and didn't do much in his class besides memorising, but he's very easy.
I had him three years ago and he's still my favorite teacher in the world! He's a good teacher and a good friend. :)
Very cool teacher. He makes the class very fun and helpful. Great history teacher. Had him last year.
Hey Mr Armstrong, thanks for making first period last year so fun for me. Sometimes i even wanted to go to class. THanx again for talking to Mr Mac for me!
Mr. armstrong is a strange guy in a funny way he makes the chinese class pretty fun but the thing is he's soo hard
Awesome teacher! He's so fun and very nice! Can be a bit challenging sometimes but he wants us to be smart and the best for us! :)
Mr. Armstrong is the BEST History teacher!! He's the only teacher I have that actually has a sense of humor anyways. ^^ good luck to Mr. Armstrong in the future
Always made his lectures very interesting with his stories. Great teacher.
Best teacher I had throughout highschool. Anyone who is lucky enough to have him should jump for joy.
