People will gain high grades in his class if they think exactly like him.He always forces his views upon his students,and asks questions such as,"What do I mean by that?" and "What am I thinking about

Ehhh. He's just ok, not the best teacher you could have. I did like his class though. All we did was sit around listening to him talk for 40 mins. Yes those rumors about how he says...questionable things... are true.

oh my goodness. i graduated from midwood in 1991. i loved mr doremus. he was my favorite teacher. i learned the most from his class than most classes i took at midwood. i can't believe the responses. it would be interesting to sit in his class and see if he has really changed. he was the most fair and open minded teacher i have ever come across. i loved his passion for reading and writing. i loved when he read poetry outloud to the class. he was an amazing teacher, but i guess 16 yrs makes a BIG difference.

He's boring, he likes the word bawdy too much, and his class is too early to hear him teach about the uh..."romantic" symbolism in every page...

I hated him when I had him - all three times. After having some of the other teachers, I wished I was back in his class. I actually learned a lot from him.

I have one word and if youve had him you know what it means : BAWDY. But he's not that hard. His hws and vocab are time consuming but also not hard
