Had him twice when I went to Tech around 2000. Super funny, clear, and easy, and because of this, you actually learned history. Didn't know he was about to be principal, congrats to him.

I had him for criminal law. Mad easy. Test questions come straight from the notes and there aren't much notes either. He loves to tease, crack jokes, and tell the most awesome stories. He's a pretty laid back, chill teacher. Oh! He shows a lot of movies, blasted loud, too.

He has the best stories, and makes the whole class actually enjoy school. His notes go straight back to his tests, so it's easy to pass and not hard to get 90+...

This is the best teacher I've ever had in tech. He has classes where he just discusses and tells stories. Yet at the same time you learn a lot. Straightforward tests, he hates the book, notes only,LOV

Newman is the man, you have to be able to fight back with a witty remark, when I say witty I mean witty, not something stupid. He'll respect you if you're smart and can play off of his humor. I had his class twice and I loved it, I sat on my desk everyday and he let me, because the man had respect for me. You need to know your government and stick up for yourself. He's a real cool guy.
