I actually transferred out of Mr. Zumwalt's class to Mrs. Loonam's class. Mrs. Loonam was a great teacher. Unlike Mr. Zumwalt, I walked out of the class with a good understanding of the material and I always felt well prepared for her exams. With Mr. Zumwalt, I never felt comfortable with the material. I read the assigned readings, felt I had a good understanding and then walked out of his class confused. It was night and day between his class and Mrs. Loonam's class.

Most likely the closest you will come to a College level teacher in High school! Deep lectures, everything goes by so fast and you better ask GOOD questions or none at all!

i enjoyed this year, i believe that he is better suited to the advanced classes who are used to lectures and such, as that is what much of the course consists of.

Hard class. Zumwalt is a very good teacher. He spends time in class lecturing (for some it's sleep time), although it can be confusing. He's an awesome teacher.
