Colburn is by far the best teacher I have ever had. Incredibly passionate about his work, and loves to get students reading and thinking-loved the discussions. Laid back, relaxed, and a super chill role model. He wanted a 1 for easiness tho, so tada!

Awesome guy. I would actually have to say that his lack of organization is a strength, as he is able to tailor the lessons and activities to the class's needs and desires.

The most fun class I have ever had at the high school. Mr. Colburn is so chill. He's not very organized, and he did lose half my class's junior papers, but his class is fantastic. We had many discussions, and he didn't assign reading notes. We got to choose our own books to read most of the time, which saved us from grumbling about having to read something we hated. He's not an easy grader, which is surprising.

im in his standard english class and he is most likely my favorite teacher. he doesnt give that much homework which saves me a lot of stress and he is very nice and funny. he also lets you take control over your learning so if you want to succeed he will help you but if you feel like not paying attention then thats fine with him. one kid even plays games on his computer all class. but i have learned a lot about grammer and writing and suggest him to any studen taking english

The flow is off the chain with this teacher. One thing that I did in his class is talk all the time and write really gramatically incorrect papers that were hilarious and since he thought they were so funny he would give me A's. What a champ teacher. He wrote my rec

Mr. Colburn is so funny. His classes are very disorganized but are just fun to be in. He is pretty romantic too -- as in telling us about how he reads to his wife while she's doing dishes. His classes are not hard to do well in, and he is very friendly. A relaxed, fun, generous person and a teacher. Nice to have him for my stressful junior year!

Easy class if you know how to write, or at least how to bother the teacher well (my case). I'm pretty sure that you won't really learn anything though. Also, he has hard time controlling students; deadlines don't mean a thing. Nice

He's a really great guy and if you get to know him, he'll take your education to a personal level. His classes were sort of...leaving you with a "what the hell?" feeling after, but loads of jokes to tell friends. Coolest teacher, though, with a great sense of humor

Craft of Writing is the best English course in the school. Take it. Colburn is amazing.

He was my favorite teacher, hands down. He was highly enthusiastic but not necessarily informative to the curriculum. I enjoyed what I did learn, though, and that was quite a bit.

His class is definitely entertaining but he's not actually a very good teacher. Very energetic, but doesn't seem to have much of worth to say.

Don't get me wrong, Mr. Colburn's great, but class gets boring when he comes in without a class planned and ends up saying nothing informational.
