Worst teacher ever.
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 :)
Is a very friendly teacher and helpfull and is always there when you need him.
He was very unhelpful only gave good grades/help and encouragement to his favorites. he said he thought i wasnt capable of making honors with a 77 average...not encouraging at all.
Hes good,but plays to much.and he has favorites just like a lot of teachers do in thsi school.But overall he that a good job.
Hes a great teacher and great to talk too. He will always be my favorite
Doesn't know what goes on in class. Has too many favorites.
nice guy fun class, but some very arbitrary grading going on....
backelman is a good teacher and a good friend. And mr. I think you should teach what you've wanted to teach the most(that is Shakespear i hope).
backelmans alright as a person, but ive gotta say as a teacher he really hasnt fulfilled his job. when people are copying off sparknotes and still getting 90s..
