Best English teacher I ever had. I had him after having been failed the previous semester by Howard Benedict (Howard gave me F's on everything with no marks on papers or tests and would not discuss why). Maybe Howard failing me was the best thing that ever happened (as he was clueless in the extreme) and I learned as much with Ben Gordon in one semester as I had learned the previous 3.5 years with other, far less qualified English teachers at NCHS.

I love this man more than anything. He's absolutely brilliant, and he'll just come into class sometimes and say "Isn't it great to be alive?" Literally.

I had him 15 years ago - and still think about his class. What an inspiration. NCHS is lucky to have him.

He's great! A college prof in a high school teacher's position. It was good for me to have him as a teacher.

A nice guy, very intelligent, and reasonably helpful... very tough on grading though. Not much homework or anything but he likes to give papers and has his own unique style of writing/evaluating that he grades you by that takes some getting used to.
