He is the worst teacher i have ever had my 4 years at east lyme high school. I have taken spanish every single year of my high school career and am now a senior. I am in his a level class, and have currently learned nothing. i really wish i could switch out becaise i have a test tmwr, and i have learned nothing. Oh , and everyother teacher i didnt stress so much over the tests bc we learned in class, i hate him sm all i have to say.

Worst teacher ive ever had. I gathered all my willpower to try to pay attention to his cringy inaccurate random off topic confusing lesson and i dident learn a single thing. Also he leaves the lights off which is annoying and thinks the 70 i got for a grade is "not bad" the class average of every test is in the low 70s to high 60s because no one learns anything so he adds like 10 points to every test so it is passing.

Well, do not expect to do much or learn anything. You watch movies almost every class and he gives worthless lectures. Some info he teaches is horribly wrong and this messes up future Spanish classes. Exams are way too difficult as they are on stuff he never taught. Skips huge sections of class content. Also to note, Willson thinks a 70 is amazing on any test/quiz/etc.

I felt bad for him; he teaches the lower-level classes full of unmotivated kids, but he does his best to help everyone. The people on here complaining about how they didn't learn anything didn't learn because they weren't paying attention. If you listen to what he teaches, you can learn a lot from him. Willson is the man!

Awful teacher. Seriously like I've never had a worse one. He sits behind his desk all day and never engages with students. Like teaching yourself? Well then your going to love his class because you wont learn a single word with this guy. I feel like I age 50 years a minute in his class he makes it so non-enjoyable. We had a sub one day and honestly it was the first time this year i felt like I had a teacher. He thinks a 70 class average on a test is "about where it should be." A Inept teacher.

As a very shy person he put alot of pressure on me to speak up in class by counting how many times the students raise their hands and grading them accordingly. I was never good at spanish but his class wasn't that bad.
