I graduated over a decade ago, but still have great memories of Mr. Harrington. I took four out of the five classes he taught because I loved learning from him so much. He inspired me and pushed me to be the best writer I could be. Today, I have a career in writing, and I credit him with helping me realize my potential.

He seems a little arrogant and is a hard grader. Pushes students a lot...sometimes too much. I think he's a decent guy. Got an A in his class but I don't think I was anywhere near a favorite and you can tell who is. It's not overly obvious but he's very impressed or disappointed by students. Comes off a little too strong emotionally sometimes in my opinion. I do think he's worth having but he won't be okay with any slacking. He will get angry, which is what I hate is angry teachers.

Had him for 10x this year. One of my favorite English classes EVER, and I learned more than I have any other year. He makes you write a lot, but it's the kind of writing that makes you think. Sometimes the essays can be a little baffling and overwhelming, but they helped me grow immensely as a writer. He gives great, insightful feedback on your work, but still grades pretty easily. I don't think I've ever gotten below a 95 on one of his assignments. I'm in 9th now, hope I'll have him again

He's the coolest of the school hands down. During my early release days, he'd let me hang in his public speaking class, and he taught us about GOOD ELEPHANTS GONE BAD.

A very good teacher. Had him twice, enjoyed both classes and learned a whole lot. His Achilles heel is that he favors the girls.
