Undoubtedly one of the easiest and scariest teachers to anger, but one of the best. And sousa was NOT fired, he was let go by the town do to "budget" issues- something mr. b fought against tirelessly

Mr. Bettencourt makes learning music uncomfortable. This guy is the worst teacher I have ever met. WA needs a teacher kids can relate too. That teacher was Mr. Souza.TobadBfiredhim

His basic music theory class is harder than most honors classes at our school. He pushes you and sometimes lacks logic, but is generally a pretty good guy. Clarity is an issue.

I had numerous classes with B in the mid-90s. Good guy, knows what he's talking about -- maybe not a great guy to hang out with, but you'll learn music from him -- no question.

Mr. B, you gave me a bad grade for the quarter and you have a really bad temper, but you're still cool.

Mr B. wants nothing but the best for the band. he is very strict, and very particular, but it makes us a better ensemble. he challenges everyone to grow.

He is tough on students, but he may be the most talented musician I've met in my life, and he definitely tries his best to help us become great musicians.

Personally, I like Mr. Bettencourt. Without a shadow of a doubt, he has a very mean side, but if you work hard, he'll be nice to you.
