He's a fun teacher, very helpful, but the assignments he gives are not really useful in life and are just for his own purposes. This class is a free block and everyone does nothing.

I feel like Mr. Olson is one of the most misunderstood & underrated teachers. Sure, he doesn't do much in class. Sure, it isn't the most professionally taught course. But, Mr. Olson is deep down a warm, caring, thoughtful, and kindhearted person. He didnt teach me much related to the course, but he taught me a few big lessons on how to be a better person. In my opinion, that is the most Applied Skill anyone could ever learn. No use in giving advice for future students because he's not returning.

He doesn't teach at all, probably only beginning of each term. Getting an A is super easy.

Mr. Olson is every Synergy student's nightmare. Class is chill and most of it is spent on Facebook/not even in it at all, but he gives the weirdest and most inconvenient assignments. He expects you to blog and email it to him every day, and we were also supposed to develop "empathy for the homeless" and go out and beg for our food. You either hand in your assignments and get 100% or not hand it in and get 0%. If he doesn't like you good luck. Gave someone an I last year. For Applied Skills.

He won't teach you anything... Believes that all learning should come from the student. Good theory but it never works out.

Knows his stuff. Talented at what he does obviously. Doesn't know how to communicate very well with students though. Has favorites and ignores everyone else. Doesn't seem passionate about teaching at all, but I still respect him becasue he knows his stuff and he's talented, but why is he a teacher?? He seems sick and tired of it all the time, and he acts like the students aren't even there. I know some kids don't care, but it doesn't mean everyone doesn't care. He should try to explain and help more.
