I was a student of Mr.Shims years ago in 2002, i dealt with alot of problems at home and with myself at that time.
Mr.Shim was my most memorable teacher because, he genuinely cared.
I gave hi a hard time as a student, but his kindness and caring heart will always stick with me.
At a time in my life when i felt alone- he was there.
Thank you, Mr. Shim.

IMO Mr Shim is one of if not THE best teacher in DHS and definitely the best teacher I have had. He wasnt naturally good at math when he was younger so he knows how to explain difficult concepts to people who dont get it, since he didn't understand it at first either. He is so fun and likes to tease people and make jokes and he always says how much he loves his students, which really shows when he interacts with us.Hes not strict on doing your hw and doesnt mind offering his free time to help u.

Honestly my favourite math teacher ever. He`s so helpful, gives easy and do-able math tests and work. Explains things very simply and to the point. Allows us to work in groups if we want. our clas s average was 91 because of him. Honestly he is such a great teacher and too bad he is retiring this year.
