Ahhh Bartleby. Bill McHale was one of the reasons I became a teacher myself. Mr. Mchale had "cool" about him that contradicted most preconceived notions of how an English should act. Every day that you walked in the culture of the classroom was set by music and laughter. It's my 11th year teaching and I appreciate him more now than I did back in 1995 and 1998. I was fortunate enough to have him twice. McHale...you da man - John Vieira

I had him for AP English my senior year, 2003-2004, and he was the best teacher ever. He was strict, but not so strict that he didn't cut me slack when I really needed it. I learned a lot from him. Now I'm a teacher myself and I really admire his skills as as an educator.

Mr. McHale was a good teacher if you were the typical honor student. Although Forrest Gump was good for a few laughs.
