He's kind of odd but in a funny way. Besides that, really good teacher and you'll do fine if you pay attention. (N-no Shelly)

He's a bit odd, but he's just trying to connect with this generation. I do question his sanity when he randomly shares what he has for breakfast in the mornings. I needed extra help from a tutor while in his class, but I do appreciate the teaching experience that he has in IB math.

Awesome teacher. Teaches a tough course although really knows what he's doing and wants you to succeed even if he can be a bit tough. Funny guy too and makes the course a lot more enjoyable than what you'd expect from IB Math.

Mr. Penning is probably the worst teacher I have ever had. Naturally, I struggle at math so it only makes sense that I had a hard time in his class, but he made no attempts to help me or the other students struggling in his class and then got upset with us when we didn't know what we were doing. And for the record, he is an extremely self centered and rude man.

Mr. Penning is the best teacher at Westwood in my opinion. He has taught me everything I need to know in my Pre-Calc class and I understand even the most strenuous concepts. Thank you Shelly!

I feel that Mr.Penning was a knowlegable teacher with a great method of teaching. But if you do not understand something, you are in a heap of trouble. The only option is to either seek a "friend," go

Penning started out teaching during my 9-12 stint... It took him a year or two to really get the hang of things, but he was a good guy and a great teacher, like a good friend you could turn to.

At the time when I had him several years ago, I screwed around a lot and blamed it on him. He really wasn't a bad guy. He really tried to get through to me, and help me, but I didn't let him. Good guy

Avoid this one! Totally irresponsible, tests uncovered material, expects way too much of students. Apparently not a good volleyball coach either...
