(Take 2): Mr. Burgess currently teaches AP English Literature, English 1, and Journalism. He also coaches the Academic Decathalon team. As my English teacher for two years, I can honestly say that Mr. Burgess will teach you valuable critical thinking and writing skills. A lot of time in class is spent on discussing current events. As an AP teacher though, he should mind his passing rate. Mr. Burgess is an involved teacher, and should not be taken too lightly. You will learn ideas in a new way.

Mr. Burgess currently teaches English 1 (Reg or ACC), English 2 (Reg and ACC), AP English (Lit), and Journalism at Rosemead High School. One of the best English teachers on campus. Helps students analyze novels and relate to real life. Mr. Burgess also taught us how to write a proper analytical essay. Would love to have him as my English teacher at a later year. Overall, Mr. Burgess is an excellent English teacher worthy of praise.
