An amazing teacher and fantastic person. He has taught me more about poetry and novels than any other English teacher I have ever had. His class is always enjoyable and fun.
While you will be challenged and worked harder than other English teachers, you will be extremely prepared for college. I grew so much as a writer during his class because he not only critiqued me, but also challenged me to think deeper. I changed so much as a person my senior year, and his class had a lot to do with it. Ever college teacher that I have had to write a paper for has been so impressed with my work, and without Thompson I would not be as successful.
Changed my life and my mind. I'll never owe a teacher so much.
IB English 12 changed me.
I love this class. If not my favorite, its definitely up there. He is so funny and his jokes can be a little crazy (if you know what I mean). He treats us like a college class and isn't afraid to express himself the way he is. He gets very excited very easily and its amusing to watch. He is very passionate about poetry and what he teaches. Very fun and creative class. I recommend it to anyone who doesn't mind work and play:)
I like him. That's saying a lot. He doesn't mind doing favors as long as you do your classwork. If you want to get on his good side(something I recommend), try to make his job entertaining. He's a teacher who teaches who teaches for the self-fulfillment; remind him remember why he became a teacher in the first place. He is in essence a teacher who teaches what he was paid to teach, but also tries to sneak in a few life-lessons he wasn't paid to teach. These lessons make all the difference.
He was definitely one of the best teachers I had in high school. He has given my entire class a love of poetry, prepared us well for the exam, and was extremely laid back. I never had to push myself t
I loved having Mr. Thompson as an English teacher! He is one of my favorite human beings alive. He's hilarious and extremely passionate about poetry and literature, and it's amazing to get into discus
Someone who is a thinker rather than the typical teacher who preaches how to pass tests without absorbing material.
The class is okay. Mr Thompson is somewhat elitist. His publication The Sheet is often offensive, and he is mostly interested in his IB students --I have taken better English classes!
He's the best teacher I've ever had, and I'm now a sophomore in college. He and Mrs. Hall instilled in me a love for literature and poetry. I'm now and English major. :o)
I love Mr. T! He's such a cool, passionate, incredible teacher. He makes the class so much fun to be in, his jokes are hilarious, and he's just so sincere. Best class I've taken. Mr. T rocks!

Mr. Thompson was the best teacher I've ever had the privaledge of taking. He is an intelligent, eloquent, and overall wonderful person.
True passion for his job. He wants everyone to love english as much as he does, and succeeds. He is also a WONDERFUL actor! So interesting to listen to.
Something is good in the state of English, & that's Mr. Thompson. Wonderful teacher, great job a what he does, amazing love for poetry. Good guy, yes!
Simply put -- Brilliant teacher. Loves his subject and teaches in a way that you learn to love it the same way.
One of the two best teachers I have ever had. Period. Has a passion for teaching and poetry, in particular, that shines through in class.
It's not a class you can fake the work for, but I have no idea why anyone would want to. Mr. Thompson is very good at teaching and has a great sense of humor.
Mr. Thompson seems really cool so far, and he's a good teacher. Well I guess that I'll know more later...
