Mr. Doolittle is possibly the best teacher I've ever had. Don't get me wrong, his class can be difficult at times but he is a teacher who cares about the subject he teaches and his students. I especially enjoy when he cracks a can of tuna during class/quiz/test and the whole classroom is saturated in the wonderfully pungent aroma of canned fish. It is genuinely great for sensory learners such as myself and definitely helps with recollection.

Gives you the exact college experience, you take notes in class and read your textbook at home. Periodically will give out quizzes over miniscule details (pretty hard; DO NOT UNDERESTIMATE) but the actual tests are moderate in difficulty.

Mr.Doolittle may be a chill teacher but he took cheating very seriously. He mistaken me for cheating once and told me to turn in my test, I still passed with an A.

Probably the nicest man I've ever encountered. He is very genuine and he simply respects those who work hard. It's like a college class. You must read on your own and do your own work. He's incredibly smart, but explains concepts in certain ways: sometimes very clearly and sometimes not as clearly. Economics is a dry class, I don't blame him for trying to input some humor!!

He's a complex person. I mean, he does try his best at teaching, and he does make you understand your class-- IF you pay attention. I'm doing great in his Econ class, but only because I do the work he gives me. You cannot blow off his class and expect wonders. Other than that, I can't really fault him with much. I've had some negative experiences with him, but it was quickly solved. He's a good person, and a even better teacher. I'll definitely miss having him as a teacher next year.

Doesn't teach anything and just confuses students with concepts that should be simple logic. That being said, he understands that 2nd semester seniors can't be bothered to do work and accepts it.

His jokes are so bad, they're good. Just the fact that he's actually voicing them are pretty hysterical.

Great teacher! His class was entertaining, and we didn't learn just the run-of-the-mill stuff about World History. A number of test questions are over information not learned or taught.
