Truthfully, Mr. Otis is one of the best people I have ever met. He can come off as tough, but it's only because he knows you can do better. I'm sad that I won't be able to take a class with him again, but I'm glad that he's able to retire in peace.
He's always been supportive of me and forgiving whenever I've made mistakes. He's been one of my best friends for the past three years, and if I were younger, I'd ask him to stay another year out of selfishness... but I've matured.

Mr. Otis is a brilliant man, he is very intelligent and helpful. Although he may come out to be harsh at times that is just because he is being honest and in way is actually helping us. He demands respect and teaches us intangible life lessons from day 1. Great guy, no regrets.

Honestly, the greatest man who ever lived. 100% honest with everyone. Doesn't hold back, tells you how it is. If you want to take a class that actually teaches you about life, and what you will encounter in the future, THIS IS THE MAN FOR THE JOB. His way of dealing with annoyances is amazingly great. He has a great way of thinking. His class should be going on for all 4 quarters, because 2 are just not enough. Mr. Otis will be truly missed, an amazing man with amazingly talent to go along.

Mr.Otis is the man and knows his stuff. Anyone who says that he is a bad teacher is just upset because he can be harsh at times, doesn't beat around the bush, and probably yelled at those kids. He has knowledge of music, and many other topics, beyond compare. Simply put Otis is the man
