Objectively speaking, he is very unreliable. Unable to ask for any type of clarification. Does not have clear set rules and very presumptious. Terrible grammar and spelling for an English teacher; not just mistakes. Does not care about official, or legitimate circumstances. Does not treat students with respect or any care. Out of line with many accusations, almost to the point of verbal abuse.

Probably my top 3 favorite teachers of all time, great personality, and very helpful. Some students just don't take the class seriously then blame his teaching skills on it. Overall my favorite class I've had at irvington.

I had Daniel Quincy Sipsy my freshman year of highschool for english in 2008. After graudating highschool and graduating college, Sipsy still has the award for worst teacher I've ever experienced. He bases grades off of his mood and A's are 93+%. The most vivid memory I had of him was when he told our class he is teaching for the money solely.

All the kids who left reviews are probably the bad kids mad they didn't pass his class lol. He was so chill with my class, there were like 5 kids he didn't like because they were always talking and never did their work so he would just send them to the RC. I passed his class with an 89% and ever since then he taught me how to work hard, now it doesn't matter what strict English teacher i get i pass with an A. He stays after school to help you pass his class. He made the Odyssey fun to read!

Mr. Sipsy is one of the nicest teachers ever. the only reason he is rude is because the students usually make him mad.If you just stfu and do what he tells u to do he would be in a good mood. He was so nice to my class and ally joked around with us.I don't understand why people hate him, he is a really nice guy and his class is super easy!you can find the answers for the test online and his orb are like one paragraph!whoever says his class is hard is just lazy af tbh.Grow up and stop being rude!

Possibly the funniest teacher in the world because he is so stupid. I found all his test online but didn't even have too because he makes a partner correct your test. Just don't talk in his class. He's essay take about 10 minutes to do and he pretty much is mad everyday.

You basically just walk into the class and hope he's in a good mood. If he's not then you're pretty much screwed. Don't ask questions. Don't as for clarification. And definitely do not talk in any way shape or form, even if it's education based. He often suppresses questions and also likes to use double negatives while speaking. He also does not actually teach in the anything but instead shows you a few slides and expects for you to know what to do.

Sipsy wasn't too bad of a teacher. He didn't help too much which made the class kind of hard. Everything he said he bsically slurred. He also gave me a redo on my QUEST testimony. So, he's kinda bad.

He can't read well and misprounounces words. He doesn't know how to use the word "due" instead of "do". He's in love with commas and excessively uses them incorrectly. He also doesn't know how to use
