He is teaching a course that needs focus and clarity none of which he provides. Can make inappropriate comments and if you voice concerns he takes it personally.

He's smart but he just can't put it into words. I've had questions that take him a day to get back to me about. He spends most of class talking and then sends us home to do the class work at home. He says to stay in at lunch for help but he doesn't always help. He doesn't seem to understand his own packages. If you have the devotion to do research and extra work, go for it, but if you're looking for someone to give you the answers? Look elsewhere.

The booklets he gives you seems like he got them off of the internet, even gives credit to some sources at the bottom of pages. Overall bad teacher, when you ask him a question he's not knowledgeable on the subject and asks you to find the answer. Get out of the class.

Valeda is an amazing teacher, anyone who is complaining about him is incapable of learning and would give any teacher who gave them a bad mark a bad score. Valeda is THE man

I must say that Valeda is a great teacher who can't teach. He knows a lot, but can't lead a class. He seems to struggle with getting the students to understand concepts. :|

Great guy (and really funny), he sometimes goes through the subjects a little too slow to help the people in trouble, which leaves the rest waiting. Anyways, love his class!

Sheldon's a great teacher, spacey for sure, but knows what he's talking about more than any other teacher in that school I think, and he maintains a very open mind, doesn't have pre-set idea's on how stuff works, always willing to put himself in the students shoes to help him explain better

He's good if you want to learn. If you don't care then he doesn't care. He's VERY knowledgable, but is very picky about giving part marks.
