Cherkas was the best teacher. Most of my classmates are super lazy,don't want to do the work that it takes to be successful in his class.i moved from another school where all we did in gym was play dodge ball. In Cherkas's class, u will learn phys.Ed
Mr. Cherkas is a wonderful caring man
ASSHOLE. One time he stopped the entire gym class to ask if there was something wrong with me because he didn't like the way I run.
He's sexist, racist, biased, and likes to humiliate the not-as-athletic students. Hope he loses his job.
It was very difficult to tolerate this man's ego. Although the course material was based on individual fitness, Mr. Cherkas favoured athletes and couldn't care less to assist those with different body types (other than fit) actually attempting to improve their fitness. He was racist, sexist, demeaning, wrongly opinionated and entirely unprofessional. Steer clear.
He hasn't marked a presentation from 3 months ago, we did not have a final exam for health for both semesters. It is true that if you're not athletic, he wouldn't like you.The only good thing about him is that he makes you work hard.
For some, Mr. Cherkas is a great teacher (e.g. if you are an athlete). For those not athletically included (or female), this teacher is biased, sexist, racist and rude. He is fortunate to have a history in professional football - it engages him with the school board as a 'famous' guy but as far as motivating youth or understanding obesity and the need to engage children in the love of movement - he fails. Criticism, sarcasm, shame and ridicule are the teaching strategies. Boooooo - shame RPSB!
He is strict, but pushes you to be much better. You grow from his class with life long lessons, he also goes on and on with rants
This class was HARD. He pushed us harder than I thought I could do, but I grew so much from his class. He was really helpful and if you put effort into his class, you get through relatively scot-free. A very respectable man, teacher, and coach.
