Mr. Sommerkamp aka the walking savage. Man is a beast of a teacher. Very kind, nice, wants nothing but success for his students. Goes out of his way to help you and gives good tests reviews. His lessons make sense if you pay close attention but honestly I just self-taught at home so I could admire the guy when he worked his magic in front of the class. Man hates the Nelson textbook with a passion. Future Grade 12s, plz try to stay somewhat focused after midterms. Don't do what I did. #Gainz
Best, and smartest teacher by far at Gonzaga. Has five university degrees, physics, calc and 3 others, speaks three languages and is head of math department at Gonzaga. he is great during tests, and will explain anything to you even if you are not his student. Very funny and it super kind and again helpful. no matter what, if you get him, do not switch out no matter what! amazing teacher and will go on to be my favourite. SAME COW, DIFFERENT BEEF!!!!!!!
I LOVE YOU SOMERKAMP best teacher ive had in a while<3 kepp being bubbly :)
I couldn't really understand him at first but he's a really good teacher if you pay attention and he's really helpful and will answer any question you ask and his test outlines is the cherry on top. Great teacher, really smart and funny.
Don't look at his gut.
You'll know what I mean when you see it.
BEAST TEACHER VERY CLEAR ACTUALLY LIKES HIM JOB UNLIKE SIKORSKI OR DI PAOLO GENUIS HELPED ALOT
great teacher but will sometimes make mistakes so pay attention in class!
pursue the career of being a professor in a university, not a high school teacher who is required to teach and help students
you either love him or hate him.i think he is a better teacher for those who already have a good understanding in math.. if you need more explanation that he is not the teacher for you. not very encouraging.. will probably tell you to go to applied/college while you still can (even though i ended up with a 90..)
He is an AMAZING mathematics teacher. If you have him as your teacher, you can't go wrong.
"SEE? IT TAKES 3 SECONDS! SO EASY!" those were some of the saddest times...
I haven't had him as a teacher but I've gone for after school help with him and he was a lot of help! He was a little difficult to understand because of his accent.
This teacher is like Albert Einstein: he is a genius, but very few are at his level. He is supposed to be working at NASA and not wasting his talent in this school. I have been inspired in Math, good!
LIke others have said, he is very intellegent, however he is incapable of teacheing, Communicating and understanding is diffifficult (for his strong accent), Also ne never clears up questions properly
his advanced functions course is either extremely easy for some, or a pain for others. Just hope you're not a victim of struggling in the course because you'll get no help otherwise it's very simple.
He's honestly the best math teacher i've ever had. He was an amazing teacher if ur a good student and eventhough he didnt understand the question he would always end up giving an answer somehow.
Very intelligent guy, but very bad at teaching (much like half of my university profs). He is very bad at answering questions and clarifying concepts.
Not a good teacher. Does not help with answering questions. All he can answer are yes or no question. He may probably be a good teacher for the lower levels for being lively, but he really can't teach
he always sounds like he's yelling in class, but his notes are a lot of help!
The joke in our class was to ask him a question becuase he couldn't answer our question, he only ever restated what he just said in the lesson minutes ago. Probally the most knowledgeable math teacher in the school just wish he was a little better at communicating it.
the BEST math teacher ever. He actually let me enjoy math, i did pretty well. He is very helpful. Whats weird is that he is only nice to the girls, or at least the people who are nice to him. HE IS AWESOME! i wish i had him again....
Needs to care about his students a little more, knows his stuff but sometimes can be confusing.
AWESOME TEACHER! Made math fun for me for the first time. grade 11 semester 1 was fun, he's very funny too and the classes are lest serious than other math classes.
very good teacher. actually knows what he is talking about. the first to separate the smart students from the "less-smart"(its obvious in the marks.)
sir u soo funny n u helped our class so much when u supplied...."simply...fy" lol sir ur jokes
he's sooo hilarious! i only had him for summercamp, [which is quite ironic] but i liked him and thought he taught well. LOL TOAST! Calci! Plug-it-in Plug-it-in!
okay, sommerkamp is my favourite teacher, he is good if you aren't a rebelious student, i came out of his course with a 56 but he is tough, He is also hilarious
LMAO! Your gonna be like dead meats hanging in the window..gr 9 math with him was good, but i'd hate to have him for older grades
hard to understand ... hes hilarious tho.. ur very ESNEAKY and everyone pull out calci lmao
Wow, all you ppl who said this man is smart or is a good teacher or anything more than a 2 rating should be reconsider the definition of good. worst teacher
LMAO!!!he talks to himself...lol..walking penguin..TOAST.lol...
By telling students that they are TOAST, that doesnt teach them math. YOU have made me hate math for the rest of my life.
This teacher was a supply teacher for my once and he called us all a very bad word(not gunna say it)
