Mr. Austin is a great guy, I like him very much. But boy, did i have trouble in his class. Similar to what another rating said, I bet he was a great teacher 35 years ago, but Ken, you've had a good run. I came from school where I was taught no grammar, and his class had a grammar final, and I felt unprepared because of the small amount of time we spent going over material. I like him as a person, but as a teacher, it's time to call it quits.
Mr. Austin is by far my favorite 8th grade teacher. He is so funny but he still makes you do work. He makes me cry sometimes because he is the most beautiful human being I have ever seen. Mr. Austin teaches life lessons but also teaches basic skills that are necessary to succeed. I 100% recommend him as a teacher and a best friend... ILY KENNY
Mr. Austin is an incredible teacher, he teaches life-valuable lessons, even though his tests are WAY too hard!! As a person he is hilarious and I always have fun in his class.LOVE U!!!!
He is so evil. I have never encountered such a mean human being. RUN!!!
I think Mr. Austin probably was once a really good teacher, but he is totally burned out after 40 years. He doesn't bother explaining much, doesn't collect homework, and we didn't read or write much. After Schalk last year and him this year, guaranteed we are not prepared for 9th English (except for the geniuses, who don't need good teachers). Nice man.
He liked to tease us alot, and it was hilarious, except when it was you he was teasing. Some of the literature he chose was inappropriate. Going into 9th grade i found him unhelpful.
sry but dont like him, he is not a nice teacher adn expects too much.
GREAT teacher and great mentor, and he should probably be working somewhere better than Friends Academy so he wouldnt get impatient with people. He's also HILARIOUS.
What a great teacher he is. He was challenging and engaging, though somewhat monotonous at times. He demanded a lot from us as 8th graders, which proved useful in High School.
Austin is a nice guy and even though a lot of my fellow students don't like him I think he's an awesome teacher... he may not be the easiest but I learned a lot
mr. austin is the best english teacher i ever had..hands down-- he helped me out as a teacher and as a friend
Austin is very not a good teacher cause hes not good
He's one of the best english teachers that I've ever had.
Austin is cool outside of class. hes a tough grader, and sometimes somewhat indecisive as to what he means when he assigns things tho
