I was going to call the school today to get this message to him but I found out that he's retired. I just wanted to post this to say that Ed Beattie's class, "The Times They Are Changin" had a profound effect on my life, on a very deep level. I am very grateful for fate (or my guidance counselor) putting me in that class
Engaging, intelligent, and really encourages his students to question their own thoughts and opinions in the best of ways.
A REALLY GOOD TEACHER. MR. BEATTIE'S SARCASM, HOWEVER, MIGHT HAVE THE TENDENCY TO DISTRACT STUDENTS FROM WHO HE REALLY IS. FOR ALL OF MY SECONDARY EDUCATION, MR. BEATTIE IS BY FAR THE BEST TEACHER!
Funny guy, pretty umm.... opinionated, and thats what makes him a great teacher. (coming from someone who has VERY different views than him)
Mr. Beattie is the best, i recommend his class Times they are a changing to anyone,
If you have him for senior sem, i highly recomend that he looks of your folder!! He's a great guy, don't listen to the rumors about him (they are only true during bball season)
BEATTIE RULES -only bad quality is him being a liberal!! GO BEATTIE
