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!
Mr. Carman is the face in the clouds that tells me to do my homework even though I really don't care too. All hail the Mighty C!
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.
BEST TEACHER EVER!!!!!!!!!!!!! SO KIND AND SO FUN. THE CLASS IS SO INTERESTING AND STIMULATING!!!!
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!
Mr. Carman is and will always be my favorite English teacher. He really is there to help you understand that material he teaches you and he's a funny guy. Trust me, you'll grow to love him the moment you walk into his class.
he is the single most greatest human being to ever be born
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!
He is awesome! I learned so much in his class and he's a really good teacher (:
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.
Mr. Carman was certainly the best teacher ever in my high school career. His class was the most memorable and I learned so much from his class. Steal his lizard.
He wasn't my favorite teacher but he was the most memorable. He must have done something right. He nice guy - great teacher. I can't believe he's still teaching.
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.
He's definately one of the better teachers at this school. His interest in poetry is contagious.
Carman still sounds like the cool teacher he always was. He had a major influence in my life.
C-dub is also the shizzle bam bizzle. although i didn't steal his lizard he hellla thought i did.
he's the reason why i went to summer school and got sent to island high continuation school.
What a gentleman. Always knows what's goin on in books, and comes up with interesting insites
It's an AP class, what can I say. Very good English teacher...lots of discussion on books...lots of in depth stuff that I'd never get on my own...
His jokes are funny... just that ppl don't get them right away
A very good teacher, but man he's a hard grader in his AP English class. Class is fun, but more often than not it is boring....
i think... that all these students are lying, and their just trying to ingratiate their way to an 'A'. just kidding i love you.
remember that one time when matt threw up.. yeah that was funny!
i actually liked english in his class :) and he laughed at us after being mad at us. lol
