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.
Cool guy knows a lot about physics but not a very good teacher
The most off topic teacher I've ever had. Doesn't teach anything
This guy is absolutely hilarious, by far one of the best teachers I have ever had and I love all of your stories and rants. Keep doing what u are doing
I love this guy! Maybe not the strongest teacher but was always available for help when I needed it. He really made me love physics and definitely sparked my curiosity. Thanks Valeda U da Best
Hilarious teacher, class is always lively and fun. anyone who says he can't teacher probably just refuses to learn
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
Ahahahha, i love Valeda... but he does not teach well at all. Hes so clueless
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!
Awwww Valeda.. I loved him when I was in his class, I love him even more now that I'm out of his class - he prepared me so well for university physics.
I love Valeda he is such an awesome teacher he taught me so much and even wen im not in his class he is willing to help me with anything, he is like a hippie but thats most of his charm... Luv ya
Sheldon ahhahaa well you shouldn't be teaching highschool, you should be @ the PI living it up with the rest of the physicists!! go and be free!
like the guy a lot, but really can not handle his teaching style, if you want to learn, go to a different teacher.
Teaching is not his forte....bad teacher, dont learn anything...if you want to learn something, get another teacher!
Mr. Valeda inspired in my difficult teen a love of physics. Kudos to you, Mr. Valeda.
teaching is the worst mistake u made. Teaching is not for u. I suggest u quit before u get fired. Nice guy overall but cant teach.
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
Good old Sheldon, haha. awesome guy thats all i got to say.
This guy was easily in the top three of my favourite teachers at Bluevale. Now being in University I realize that he would make a perfect university physic prof
velada is halarious, he tells really good stories and we always watched movies. It was a really fun class. I learned lots too.
nice man, tells SOME interesting stories, but when it comes to teaching...too spacey...i learned nothing and had to drop out of physics because of it...too bad
SOOOOO spaced out all the time ... i didn't learn at thing
if you want to actually learn something get another teacher
I have never had you as a teacher, but you were AMAZING in moods....Eric Clapton..Tears in Heaven!
ya he does tell a lot of stories but still a good teacher/nice guy
hes sumtimes a bit insane and doesn't always no wat hes talking bout but hes still an ok teacher
Valeda is the man...he can teach and is genius AND if you need him to write a letter of recommendation at midnight the night before it's due...he'll be there.
Yeah, very knowledgable. If you don't care, why should he?
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.
