Very intelligent, works hard, tries to explain material until everyone gets it. Gives good analogies that help relate material to stuff you know. Very reasonable.
Mr. Volkmann was my science teacher in grades 9 & 10 back in 2005/2006 and he was a wonderful teacher - it's clear that he has such a passion for science and while he doesn't seem to be very approachable, he does seem to care about his students' success. He's not the type to keep after you to make sure you're in class every day/doing work on time so make sure while in his class you take responsibility for your own learning and he will help you succeed.
I enjoyed the teaching method and you can't help but get excited when he is bouncing around just because we are studying the digestive system
I love his teaching style. Do your homework or you will pay!
Very matter of fact teaching style. Do the work and you'll do fine in his class.
