The legend himself. The most amazing and creative adult I've ever met.
Mr. Monk was one of the best teachers at Chantilly. So sad he retired. Taught us so much in one short year. He can be mean sometimes but he's really nice and funny. He's a living legend. SO glad to have a legend teach me for a year.
Mr. Monk has inspired me beyond belief. He is very critical of his students, but that is because he has seen them do things correctly and knows that they can. One of the funniest, kindest, most amazing people I have ever met. I actually want to go into drama/management or drama teaching, and I believe that he has much to do with that. Forever greatful for the one short, hilarious year I got with him.
A living legend. Sad to say I'm one of his last students, as he's retiring at the end of this year. He has been a gift to work with. Go read his plays on Playscripts.com, they're delightful.
I had Mr Monk, jeez way back in 1998... 18 years ago ... Wow he's still there? Anyways, I was bouncing a little bouncy ball on stage when everyone was goofing off, damn ball hit one of those 3 ft light bulbs way above stage and it came crashing down ... I was the only one in that class working outta a textbook for the next few weeks.
He's a good teacher though. Just don't break his theater lights hehe
You need sort of a thick skin to take notes from him but he knows when to joke around and when not to. Always my favorite class to go to he and K are the best theatre teachers their shows are always amazing and so much fun to be a part of
An absolute great teacher, so far I have learned a lot! Although sometimes it becomes difficult, during shows especially, he made me feel very bad about my ability to act, in that sense mrs. K is much nicer. But I believe monk will prepare me much more for the future than any other teacher. I highly recommend his class, but it's not for the feint hearted.
I've been his classes at IFTA two years in a row and am in his class at school for the first time this year. He's one of the best, funniest and nicest teachers I've ever meet. He's absolutely wonderful. His class will make you some of the best memories you'll ever have.
Cherish your class with Monk. He is easily the most passionate teacher I have ever had. He pushes you to your limit because he knows you can do better.
One of the best drama teachers ever taking drama all four years because of him
I was in drama 1 this year and he makes you feel like your part of the drama family. He's tough on you only becuase he knows that you could be better. He truly cares for each and every one of his stud
Amazing.you HAVE to take his class.its more then theatre.he teachers you about life.amazing teacher
Mr. Monk is a wonderful teacher and a great director. He is realy nice and very talented.
I heart mr. monk! you rock, man! and you are an avid fan of jim carrey! HECKS YA!!!!
Mr. monk is a great director and really cares about his students.
Mr. Monk is the finest teacher in the history of this great republic of ours. Indeed, he is Jeffersonian in his wonderfulness.
If Einstein had had a reacher like Mr. Monk, he might have amounted to something.
such a strange guy. mrs k is a better teacher but both are good directors. he's kind of terrifying sometimes. jokes around but clearly takes things VERY seriously.
mr.monk is the bomb!He is amazinely funny and a kool dude!he can act AND he knows how to drill!The classes are fun so join his class-be a techie or a dramahead!You won't regret it!
Monk is the reason I went on to be a Theater Major in college. Not only did he teach me how to be a better actor, but a better person! I miss him so much now! Take his class!!!!!!!
If I was the only studnet in the world and Mr. Monk was the only teacher, than we would be lonely. But he;s a great teacher and a heckava nice guy!
mr monk is so funny always with his legandary "VOLUME" CRY
mr monk is the best teacher I've ever had. although I've movedon to college I find my self longing to be back in the CHS drama department having pens thrown at me because I am not doing a 3/4 turn out! I wish there were more teachers like him!!!!!
Funniest teacher I've ever had. He doesn't have any favorites. Heonly dislikes you if you slack off like a big loser. Just help out! Its not like it's hard.
MR. MONKS THE COOLEST!!! HES SO FUNNY AND HE HAS THE COOLEST GAMES LIKE CLUMPS!!!!!
He makes you work hard but its totally worth it! He made me so much better at drama! Plus he's so much fun how could anyone not love him??
that rumor about him throwing clip boards, yea, it's true, i was on the receiving end of one
Monk's class is not for slackers so if you dont want to act, dont take drama. You learn so much from him. Just dont goof around during those 10 PM rehersals.
The best drama teacher I've ever had. He makes you work and it helps you improve so so much. Thanks for EVERYTHING.
Everyone who is putting down Mr. Monk, he's read them and he and most of the student body dissagrees with you. So shut up and think before you talk.
He has his favorites and if you arn't one of them you'll never make it in this department.
Who can turn the world on with a smile? Who can take a nothing day and suddenly make it seem all worthwhile? The Monkster.
mr. monk influences the lives of people in ways most teachers can only dream of. he is an amazing person who doesn't tolerate anything less than your best.
he challenged me to new levels and made me better. You guys at Tilly don't realize how great of a teacher you have. Be greatful and shut up.
stop dissing the Monkinator!! I LOVE THIS MAN. i got all A's, even tho i got a D on the final. knows what he's talking about and does his job. amazing dude.
mr monk is the best!! he is great to be around he brings out your best qualities
In the vast universe of education, no star shines brighter than that huge ball of gas which is called Monk. Even if I do say so myself.
he was funny but he scared the bijesus out of me... try hard and you too will recieve good grades
I respect his opinion so much. He knows who the slackers are and works with the true actors. Once you get used to his sense of humor, he becomes God
Too much rules...too much boringness...yet, makes Chantilly able to actually act..
he should just implant himself in everbodies body so that way everyone could act correctly.. im dead serious he can do the show by himself
He's really dedicated to drama; although his criticisms may seem rude or mean he tries to get the best out of you.
I don't know ANYBODY could put down Mr. Monk...he is so dedicated and loves theatre and the people..so what if he's straight forward....if he's yelling at you...you didn't try hard enough!
I used to love drama, now I can't even look at a stage
mr monk is the funniest teacher out there...and he cares so much about students
He's not caring when you have a problem..dont go to him
