THE GOAT, PLAIN AND SIMPLE
greatest teacher ever...sad to see him go
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 was an unbelievable teacher. we didn't touch academic materials at at all. but I learned more in that class than in most of my others. an amazing teacher, even better human
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.
Mr. Otis is one of the best teachers that i've ever had. He is always honest with everyone and he demands respect. He is a great guy and a great teacher.
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
possibly the BEST teacher at Fordham Prep, class of '96
best class of the day he is [email protected]!#$* hilarious he is the best
absolutely hilarious, knows his stuff but you learn very few things in his class..
hates jl's, not afraid to speak his mind, and his class is more of a discussion than a class
Otis is the man he is one of the only teachers in that school that will actually try to help you with real life issues
Otis is a tough guy, but he gives good advice and jsut know he's kinda nasty to everyone...
Ive never had a teacher; a mentor like this. Take his class if you can, join band if you can. youll learn so much if youre willing and open.I cannot overstate
Brilliant man. Very underrated. Was a great friend to me, as well a great teacher. I had him for 4 years, and he taught me more than I ever imagined.
i got a 3/7 on the exam. guess my grade. i got an A.
he doesn't teach music really....more of an everything class.
oh yeah, lets us out of class ALOT
I got in an argument the first day of class with him five years ago, after that, he would always defend me and say hi to me in the halls etc. Really cool guy.
HE DOES NOT LIKE FRESHMEN, JL'S OR THE DEANS BUT IS INCREDIBLLY FUNNY AND I SAY HE SHOULD RETURN THE MONEY
greatest man in that school. too bad not many people know that
you may hate him at first but you will love him sooner or later.
I luvvvvvvvv Mr.s Otis. The coolest mean I've ever gotten the pleasure of working with
very funny teacher. Teaches a lot of interesting stuff.
An excelent teacher. Teaches well, has an amazing knowledge of music, is something of a renasance man, and only one flaw: hates freshmen. (self-professed)
he is a very cynical, sarcastic man and if your point of view of something isnt the same as his youre wrong
