If you are not a hardworking student ask to get transferred immediately. Mr.Orn is a strict grader and every little thing matters. Attendance, lateness, homeworks, test, quizzes, and also participation (he's really big on that). If you are a hardworking student his class will be very easy for you.his regular class feels like honors and his honors class lowkey feels like AP. I passed with a 94, had perfect attendance, was never late, test average in the high 90s, but I didn't like to participate.

He is very boring and his class would put me to sleep 4 out of 5 days because nothing he teaches would catch my attention nor make me want to engage in class. His explanations on corrections are very vague so its hard to know exactly how to fix mistakes. He knows his stuff and prepares the students for college which is positive, its just his ways of teaching don't interest his students.

He was a really nice guy and you could tell he really cares a lot about English (and the HISTORY of English?) but to be honest- he was very boring, he made his tests really hard to get a good grade on, and he never really explained clearly to you why you got a bad grade on something.

mr.born is a great english teacher. he really knows how to make the class fun and get students into reading the book. he gives out hw everyday though, which can be a pain, especially when he doesnt collect it. His essay tests are extremely difficult. Thats when he becomes a tough teacher as he gives out a lot of B's and C's on those essays. Vocab quizzes are easy as long as you know the word. Half of the questions will be matching the other u'll have to put in a sentence he made up. not bad!

He is a REALLY, REALLY, strict grader. The only way he'll pass you is if you do all the homeworks, get mediocre test scores (80-90), and participate. Don't fool around too much in class or else your grades wont even matter and he will just pass you. He is a great teacher overall, and also quite humorous. He is the best teacher I have had in school so far for English. If he says you got a 77 for your english grade, it means you got an 80 on your report card.(personal experience) Give him respect.

Really good teacher had him for junior year, and I could say that he was the best English teacher I had in this school. Explains everything good, and gets you ready for his tests nicely the day before. The class isn't boring, and we actually do a lot of activities. Gave me an 88 so far.

Really kind and clear. However, his class can get boring, but he would occasionally give you a list of your tests, homework, etc. to show you that you deserve the grade you got.
