Extra credit assignments were so much fun! for his class... we take a lot of notes but his tests are not difficult and the day before the test he explains everything. This guy is funny and very intelligent. Had a great 8th grade year.

He is the best teacher I have ever had. Every time I hear songs like Johnny B. Goode, and Fortunate Son, I will remember his class. I miss this class so much. And to students who have him now, enjoy it as much as possible.
