Gunny Sergeant Lemke is a great teacher with many attributes to back it up. I

think Gunny should be elected Educator of the Year because he uses humor in his

teaching which helps take some of the boredom out of just sitting and listening for 120

minutes. I also like that he is stern when needs be, not all the time. Some teachers are

always so uptight, but Gunny in my opinion is one of the best. Being in his class is also

fun because of what we learn. I am interested in the armed services so taking Naval

Science with Gunny teaching is a great experience for me.

Some of the traits that Gunny has are, that he teaches well, has a sense of humor,

and has authority over the class at appropriate times. I feel that Gunny teaches well

because he uses many different approaches to the learning experience such as the smart-

board, lecture, and various writing assignments and quizzes. His sense of humor raises

people’s spirits, rather than just sitting and listening during class. He infuses some fun

into the class which, in my opinion, makes me want to listen to what he is saying.

Another trait of Gunny is his overall authority over the class, I admire that as well

because it doesn’t let people get too out of control so that it disrupts the learning of


Gunny Sergeant Lemke is one great teacher! His various ways of

teaching help me learn. Some teachers just teach the subject material in

one way and I think that doesn’t really help everyone learn the material appropriately.

His approach to teaching is one that helps everyone learn, by lecture, hands on,

or even by visually seeing what we are learning. I like when he gives us projects to work

on because it gives me a chance to show how much I understand the material.

For all that Gunny does I made the right choice in nominating him for

Educator of the Year. He stands out from all the rest of the teachers from years

past. He teaches with discipline. This is a sign of a great teacher to me.

He also gets up in front of the class and projects his voice in such a manner that

everyone in the class can hear what he is saying. He teaches the material in full, then

gives you quizzes and other types of assignments to reinforce your understanding of the


To sum this all up, Gunny should be elected for EOY because he is the best

teacher I’ve ever had. His teaching skills are phenomenal, and he is easy to get along

with. These are all things that make a teacher an excellent teacher. I enjoy his class more

than the rest because he incorporates the materials being taught. Most other teacher’s use

one form of teaching, but Gunny gets to everyone. His teaching skills “click” with each

student in their own way. All of Gunny’s attributes put him a cut above the rest. 2011
