Too bad all the teachers at SB weren't like mr Y. He rocks! Although I got a detention he actually is quite cool and very fair, and hard though. Him and Mr. M (the sub) are the best!

mr.y is possibly one of the best teachers at the school and describes and lectures most topics very well. But isn't clear on answers to quizs and homework and alters them for each class.

Mr. Y is a wonderful teacher. However, I think he needs to be more receptive to individual thought. Your answer is not always the only right answer.
