I had him freshman year and he was by far the worst teacher I have ever had. He is an extremely hard grader if hew didn't like you and he never taught in class because he would always go off on a random rant about his life. His test were always unexpected and impossible because he never prepared us. The only good part of his class was that it is a good waste of time to fill your boring day.
I graduated in 2003... but I was looking up Mr. Lochrie after talking about him to a colleague. My first experience with him was sophomore year when he was a substitute teacher. We were like water and gasoline.... things weren't great (I was the problem).
Junior year, I was assigned to his class- EEEEK
In hindsight, he may have been the BEST teacher I ever had. I'm very nervous about grammatical errors while trying to endorse an English teacher. I wish I had taken more of his advice.
Very hard tests, did not prepare us at all for the final, read unnecessary books while not reading necessary ones, wasted our time by telling us random stories instead of teaching us
I absolutely despise Mr. Lochrie!!! He only like some people in his class, he is very rude and doesn't care about students. Extremely tough grader and if he doesn't like you he will punish you grade-wise. He is extremely intimidating. If you find out that you have him i'd do a teacher change.
i really like him but his tests were a little hard for me but the essays were straight forward and esay
I did not like mr lochrie. His tests are always unexpected, & difficult. He doesn't prepare you well, and just expects things to work out. He is a tough grader, & is also very intimidating. Also, he never gives his students the opportunity to develop their own thoughts and opinions on things because he just straight out tells you what he thinks about everything right away. Hes opinionated, deceiving, and a tough grader. He can be fun at times, but everything else sucked. Teaching style=terrible
I have to say I love mr Lochrie! He's one of my favorite teachers. His essays are all straight forward and really easy to get A's on. Whenever we read in class he makes readings so clear, so everyone can understand difficult books, especially Romeo and Juliet and The Odyssey. He's also really nice and tells great stories. His class is always very entertaining.
I don't get why everyone loves this dude. I hated him. He was so strict it was unbelievable. Yelled at my class at least twice a week. His essays are impossible to get a handle on and it really doesn't matter what you write because if he likes you you pass and if he doesn't you fail. Simple as that.
he is hilarious about telling you random stories about life and will get so off topic hes huge and intimidating but loved his class
He's VERY often off task and is not the best at explaining things. Assignments, especially writing ones, are vague. He expects a lot from students in English 1.
One of the best teachers I have ever had. He knows what he is talking about, he gives great tips, he is entertaining.
GREAT TEACHER, GREAT GUY, JUST OVERALL GREAT!
Mr. Lochrie is simply the best teacher I have ever had, and will ever have.
For English I: Best. Teacher. Ever. Lochrie made me laugh so often in that class. Don't be intimidated by his size, I could quite easily say he's the funniest/nicest teacher I've had in High School so far. Go Mr. Lochrie!
Lochrie is a pretty hard grader, but hes a great guy, and a great teacher. Lots of fun in his class, and he has eased up a lot since like '04 (36 paragraphs???) Ask questions about urself and he likes you
Towards the end, I understood that Lochrie is a super helpful person who makes class fun (mostly) cause i mean how else can eng class be fun without going off topic?? TIP: ask questions alot (specific to u) he'll like u then.
He is an amazing teacher who wants everyone to have fun in class while also getting work done. He is one of the coolest teachers in the school, but at the same time a really hard grader. Anyone would be lucky to have him.
the class was good, the way he grades papers is slightly annoying, but formulaic and understandable. He's also really funny
His class (freshman one) was too easy, but he's really nice and funny. He related whatever we were reading to real life, which was cool.
Definitely not the guy that you'd expect to be an English teacher. That point aside, a great teacher who knows exactly what he's talking about. Fantastic story teller too. Don't goof off and you'll learn a lot.
hes a bit hard but hes hilarious and makes english really fun
He is so smart and I loved english my freshman year!
AWESOME TEACHER!! He's hilarious and makes English fun. :D
He's an effective teacher with a good sense of humor. And hes about 6'7" and 325lbs. Very imposing figure, but you don't forget what Blake Lochrie tells you, and that's that.
best teacher ever made class really fun by doing nothing
He caters to kids who aren't all that smart. Too easy, but pretty funny.
Hahaha Mr. Lochrie OWNS. He is seriously a funny teacher, and he rocks. Oh, and if you're not in his class yet, GET IN IT! He gives you amazing tips to get good grades on essays, etc.
awesome teacher, really creative/eccentric/unconventional way of teaching, really smart, knows subject well, very effective
Mr. Lochrie is my favorite teacher, he actually knows how to handle a class. He know show to keep people in like. (Like kicking desks.) He's funny and keeps my attention. Yeah for Lochrie!!
i really like Mr Lochrie, hes a really good teacher. he makes the class really fun and hes so interesting. he has so many funny stories. Also its easy to do good in his class.
Funny teacher. I loved it when he taught us how to get rich. I was always awake during his class even though it was first period.
He tought us all about "the gooch" and its functions.
mr.lochrie is the best teacher i have ever had, i shook his hand at the end of the year, it felt like i was shaking michael jordans hand or something, dude's my hero
