Army has a very biased teaching style; if you get yourself into an argument with him, you will notice your grade slowly lower. During class discussion, he often goes on random tangents and tells stories barely related to the topic at hand and repeats himself quite a bit. His grading system is very unclear and he usually doesn't make much of an effort to explain the grade he gave, even when asked. Sometimes expects too much from students and doesn't seem to care when they are having issues.

Bill Armstrong gave me one of the worst learning experiences I have ever had. Not only did his open favoritism lead me to feeling alienated and alone in his class, but his confusing and utterly unclear teaching style made was made moot by every other English teacher at Overlake who had a clue what they're doing. To put it in persepective the only thing I retained from Army's English class was how to staple properly. Army is not a good teacher and he made me miserable in his class all year, 0/10.

If you're on his good side (aka if you are female or a popular male adolescent) - English with Army should be a breeze. He's not clear, and definitely teaches with a bias. Army is a bit repetitive, but he is not a clarifying repetitive.

Did not enjoy his class at all. Definitely feel like he talks to much and doesn't care what students think.

I did not enjoy his class very much, and I hope to never take another of his classes. After his class, I found that most of what he taught us was very basic

Army is just really mean. I'm not wild about him period. Some people love him. Regardless he's an awesome teacher. He knows his stuff.
