Mr. Phelps is such a nice person sometimes (it depends on his mood). He sometimes mixes up people's names and it's hilarious. He is only mean if you are goofing off and not listening to him. He is great with music because he sometimes writes his own pieces into the music. We have won first place in our division in Santa Cruz, Napa, and Stockton and it was great. I'm looking forward to all the great events in the future and all the fun times I will have with everybody.
Mr. Phelps is a strict teacher and sometimes very mean but then again he's a music teacher and ALL music teachers are mean. I think that to some they believe Mr. Phelps does not take their lives into consideration but you first need to tell him about your family or friend problems and then he becomes sympathetic. Mr. Phelps is a great teacher who has lead the Encinal High School band to great heights, just this year the band earned three 1st place trophies in marching band. Go Jets :)
He knows a lot about music and is great when he manages to command the band's attention and respect. Unfortunately, he has some problems controlling our class.
