He is a bit intimidating with his overly confident air of bs, but aside from that he is extremely cool and nice. His jokes are a bit harsh at times and he even seems to be dark when he's moody. Not to mention the constant mood swings. He knows what he is doing and does it well enough that people deal with his bs. Really does care about his students and would just really like it if students demonstrated that they cared little more.

He is brilliant and knowledgeable, but those qualities are offset by his ego. His jokes get old and overused fast, and at some points are hurtful. My class saw him as a bully who thinks he's funny. He talked down to the class often, over-explaining points he assumed we wouldn't understand. He rarely asked for the thoughts of the students concerning the assignment or texts, he immediately went into an explanation without asking for input from us. He has the potential to reach the level of Holt.

Didn't like him; he was sarcastic, cynical, made too many jokes; what is his obsession with pine cones?
