Mr. Wood is very passionate about literature and teaching and he focuses on discussing novels in class. He likes to improve his students writing skills by assigning a fair amount of papers, and doesn't test too much. He was one of my favorite teachers and I highly recommend him, especially if you are passionate about English.

Mr. Wood is one of the most intelligent people I have met. He tends to think philosophically, so you might not like him if that's not your kind of thing. Mr. W grades pretty harshly, on the equivalent of a college level scale. But his expertise and knowledge is worth it.

Mr. Wood is the best english teacher at Northgate. It was a pleasure to have any sort of interaction with him, and I was lucky to have him two years in a row. He really helps you hone your writing skills and improve as an overall student.

you know a teacher is a good one when he graduated from Yale and is loaded. He simply does not need the job, he is making money even when he isnt working. He teaches because of pure passion to teach. Great teacher, you will not find anyone like him.

Mr. Boyd and Mr. Wood make a great combo for threads junior year. During the year i never really thought too much of them, but as I think back both are exceptional teachers

Mr. Wood is soooo cool. He will move back deadlines if other classes are piling on the work. He also takes work late (in one humorous example, almost two months late). But you still have to do the wrk

Mr Wood is awesome. We don't do anything in his class, but I still learn a lot from showing up. Oh, by the way he has a night club. What isn't cool about that?

Mr. Wood is a great teacher! But, he hates short people. Why does he teach english at Northgate if he went to Yale?
