He is the worst teacher I've ever had. He is unfair and needs to get a hold of his class; he has no control of kids whatsoever. He needs to set boundarieswith the students as well, the relationship he has with them is not professional.

He was one of the best English teacher I ever had. Till this day I cannot read the Iliad, The Odyssey, Catcher in the Rye without thinking of him. He made reading fun!

I loved having Mr. Backelman as a teacher! His class was great although it was a little tough. I actually read books and learned in his class. He's awesome :)
