He was honestly one of the best teachers I've had at Gonzaga! When I got him in grade 9 people were like 'switch out'. But I was happy I was in his class cause i actually got to learn about geo, unlike all the other geo classes. his grade 11 class was no different he was hilarious. he may seem rude to people, but he was actually really nice. Sucks people can't learn geography very well now.

Steffensen...honestly my favourite teacher at Gonzaga, he's hilarious sometimes a bit rude (in a jokingly way), and a pretty easy marker. After being in his Geography class a few years back he made me really interested in geography and even though he seems scary...he's really not just don't fool around in his class, listen to his lectures and copy the key things he says because everything he talks about are the answers for the assignments

One of the smartest men I've ever met. Although most of his lessons were lecture style, he never had any notes with him. The man just knows everything there is to know about the Earth and he is so passionate about it. His assignments are often pointless and tests aren't easy, but if you have a sense of humor and even remotely enjoy the class' content, you will enjoy his class

Excellent teacher. Very knowledgeable in geography. He could be making so much more as a geologist, but he keeps teaching because he loves it. Really funny and sarcastic. Greatest teacher I had in grade 9.

Although he makes the course seem hard, he teaches really well. You get a lot of assignments, and random discussions appear out of no where, but he is a great teacher. Teaches interesting stuff! =D

One of my favourite teachers. He basically expects you to be intelligent and understand the concepts, but wants you to go further than just understanding, which is good preparation for later in life.
