I had McDonald last year for Freshmen English. He was great, I don't remember any "bad days." I've only ever heard guys complain that he's a tough grader, He loved me.

Not the same without him. Even if he was in a bad mood (which wasn't too often) he was interesting.

Freshman English with Mr. McDonald is a fun class. The material is sometimes boring, but he tries to make it interesting. He's a good guy and you learn a lot.
