The best sociology and U.S. History teacher. His way of teaching involves the students and increases their interest in the topic, which he always explains clearly.

This man eats chalk, tells bad jokes, is rude and thinks he knows it all. He is the type or teacher who finds ways to fail students rather than help than help.

dude, if you wanted to tell jokes, hit the stand- up circuit. The classroom is not the place for bad jokes. isn't history the class you teach?
