Out of all teachers he was the most frantic unorganized teacher. he was always in a hurry and laughed at the class when they didn't understand it. even after asking a question he wouldn't answer it he'd just repeat what he said over again. he's not any help after class either.

It was very difficult to learn in this class. Mr. Cavalin does not teach, he just writes things on the board and assumes we understand and then gives us a test.

He is a good teacher. He isn't very good at explaining the math to people who aren't good at math already. You need to join his class already having some knowledge in math. He likes to switch what class he teaches. He can teach PE, Technology, or geometry.

Steve was greatly missed by the new world champ in Rohnert Park this year. Steve knows him, Behler! If Steve had been there, Behler would have been #2. The pillow fight between the top 2 women was by far the best for the day, hands down, no need to doubt, it was a classic that should be put on the internet. Debbie won, but definitely had a tough time.

Cav has his own set of rules he follows that no one else knows about. He discusses things with the students he shouldnt like who should start in bball. He does not seem to care about his students.

Mr. Cavalin's frosh PE program is so unorganized and uninteresting. Almost every PE period we go to the gym and he just stands there and watches while we play basketball.

Lets do something besides basketball. He was cool at the beginning of the year, but now he uses PE as just an extra Cardinal Team practice. I've shot so many hoops that I think I could make his team
