I was actually his student more than 20 years ago and still think about things I learned in his class, if that is any indicator of his long standing quality of teaching and thorough grasp of humanity. I am glad to see his current students appreciate his guidance and facilitation. It is wonderful when the teacher can see the potential in the students and help guide them. He definitely did that. Thank you!

He was a great teacher. He inspired me to study humanities in college, which ever-enriched my life. He also inspired a fellow peer to become an English/humanities teacher too!

Chris Carman is the best teacher ever. His words inspire every student in some way. "Reading home work is real homework" is his most famous quote. Mr. Carman is the most caring teacher, who is willing to laugh and joke around with his student.

In a utopian society, all teachers would be like Mr. Carman. He is so kind and the type of sarcastic that doesn't bite, but incites both wonder and laughter. He leads, not by force but by example; his authority is naturally assumed, the way that a father naturally commands respect. The bond that he creates with his students leaves quite an impression. Definitely the captain (my Captain!) of all English teachers. Splash it up!

Best teacher that Alameda High has to offer, hands down! Mr. Carcar is the most coolest, caring, understanding, funniest, and down to earth teacher I've ever experienced. Love his teaching style, I learn new things everyday in his class. He always finds a way to incorporate a corny/pun joke into a situation, and is absolutely hilarious. I'm gonna miss him.

Mr Carman was a really good teacher. He was difficult to get use to at first but then his ways of teaching helped me learn a lot in both english and history. He is very nice but can be weird at times. Overall i loved his class!

Definately take this teacher, he taught me a lot about Humanities, and influenced me to dwell into humanities in college. His teachings are valuable life long lessons that are beyond traditional high school material.

The best teacher I've ever had, hands down. Treated me like someone with an opinion that deserved to be heard. Encourages discussion, developing your own analytical style. He was the first to engage me as an equal, and I think i compare all of my English teachers to him now. I miss this class!

I wouldn't even call him a teacher because his AP class is more like a daily discussion than a classroom. Amazing teacher, very inspiring, funny, and unique.

Won't forget the time he ran after me in the hall because I hadn't shown up to class for a week. But impeccable taste in music (U2) and poetry. Good times.
