Barry is a teacher with high expectations. Because of those expectations, he always encouraged us to perform better in our written work. At the time, I was not so happy with a teacher who pointed out my flaws. But in the long run, I thank him for increasing my ability to use the English language properly. After handing back critiques on our rough drafts, he said that someday we would thank him. I thank him for helping every student to grow and increase in his or her own personal abilities.
