Mr. Powers is an awesome teacher! I love being in his class! A good guy. Padilla + Powers + Torres = BEST ENGLISH TEACHERS EVER.
Mr.Powers is the best English teacher I have ever had. He is enthusiastic, and makes the class very interesting. He is very charismatic and has a great sense of humor. I adore him!
Ahh:) I had last year and he is the best English teacher ever!
He gets Distracted very easily, and sometimes forgets the curriculum. I love him though, hes the funniest teacher i have.
Wastes time in newspaper. Super entertaining in english. Love him.
Fantastic, energetic teacher! I've graduated now, but I sincerely hope he never loses his incredible enthusiasm. His passion for teaching is rivaled by few, and makes for a great classroom experience. Good luck keeping up with his tricky sarcasm though!
He picked favorites practically after the first month. But he is the funniest guy and is himself a great writer and i generally agree with his opinions, however I need to learn how to write essays better and learn vocabulary and I haven't :(.
Had him for newspaper. Picked favorites. Actually changed the time for one student, wrecking other kids schedules. Nice guy, but the newspaper really suffered.
So, Mr. Powers is a very intelligent guy and he's really funny, but he doesn't neccesssarily teach you how to write...He assigns a lot of writing assignments, but he's not very good at literally explaining what's right and wrong. He doesn't prepare you well for the AP Exam, he tends to focus more on interesting pieces of literature and controversial topics. It definitely a class where you'll learn a lot about life and have a chance to express your opinions though. You probably won't get better at writing
Mr. Powers is probably one of the funniest teachers on campus! You need to learn not to take the "mean" things he says seriously because he's super sarcastic. He's really into his English classes and is a good journalism advisor as well!
I LOVE MR. POWERS! He teaches me so much about writing, speaking, and LIFE! He's so much fun! It's probably not appropriate to say this but I see him more as a friend than a teacher.
Chock full of opinions and ideas. Love the man. Learned a lot.
Mr. Powers is great. AP English as well as Journalism! His classes are never boring!
He's really funny, but can get sarcastic. Sometimes that's funny too. I would never say he's boring, and he's definately intelligent; I'm just worried about the AP English test seeing as this is his first year teaching the class. He's one of few teachers I can actually feel comfortable talking to.
Such a great journalism advisor. Keeps things comfortable and funny in the classroom, but applies the necessary amount of restriction.
haha i love mr. powers...he just doesnt like people who are really immature
for our breaks.... we stretch to get the blood flowing again lol and the best part is when we play GUITAR HERO!!!
it's basically a lecture. go in after class if you have questions or need help-otherwise he might never learn your name. most of our ap classes consisted of him handing out a worksheet and then reading it outloud, which is actually kindof amusing. oh, and he totally gets senioritis right along with the seniors. our final was a power point on ourselves. seriously? yeah. it was great.
mr. powers was basically an awesome teacher. if you work hard, he'll give you the grade you deserve. he loves to fail seniors so you can't slack off and he will not raise your grade so don't even try crying. he's really easy and if you do everything, you're gonna get an A. AND he's freakin hilarious and his projects are really fun. try to get powers.
He's okay i have him for English 1. We had 4 essays while other classes had 2. He's a good teacher though. He goes into monologue a lot.
mr powers is my favorite teacher EVER! he was the only teacher that made me believe in myself! not only that, he's charming, hilarious, and listens to rap!c lass is enlightening and total non stop fun. MR POWERS U ROCK!
BP can be a little bitter when students are being jerks, but he refuses to actually punish them. To those who say he wants to be like Padilla... Well, English teachers don't come much better than Padilla, so I see nothing wrong with that. BP is a brilliant man, if a little lenient (which gets him frustrated some times.)
sitting in mr. powers class is like. if you actually listen, he's so intelligent, and he's the best english teacher i've ever had, he's just really really smart and speaks his mind. so listen! you'll learn a lot! great class!
Mr. Powers is awesome! He doesn't always follow the guidelines, but his class is better that way. He knows what matters
He is such a nice person and definitely knows what he is talking about. He gets into a lot of monologues, but they are generally interesting to listen to.
best english teacher ever!!! all the other AP english teachers don't even come close to how smart he is or how cool he is!!!
yah right, i'm really sure he lives to be like padilla. he's way smart and cool and better than padila.
Talented, enthusiastic, and caring. A real intellectual- a college professor type, not a babysitter.
i love how he told us he nvr wanted to be a teacher, he just did it b/c he had nothing else to do. powers i love u, and i kno u love per 5!!
newpaper is the best class ever, Powers is so dedicated that it makes you love the class!
Mr. Powers in one of the smartest teachers I have ever had, you can respect the grades he gives because you know they are objective and fair.
He's a great teacher. I really never enjoyed english before this year but now that I'm in his class I look enjoy writing.
you can tell mr.powers genuinely cares about teaching us students. he tries to make us think and let's us express our opinions! mr powers is the man! LC YOU KNO
hes pretty cool but he thinks hes so smart cuz he went to harvard. you can tell he doesn't really know that much about english
