He is very nice to me, but like some of the others said, he makes jokes that can sometimes hurt ppl. It's fun to be in his class and he let ppl to tell puns and jokes all the time. A bad thing about his class is that he goes super fast and is not really patient at explaining things.

I'm in his period 9 class 2016-2017 and he is one of my favorite teachers, he is really nice to me and recommend me for honers, but he tries to be funny and can end up making jokes after someone gets somthing wrong and idk if he realizes it could hurt their feelings. He is a great teacher but can defiantly be careful on what he says to the other kids.

His sarcasm ends up hurting people. He gets mad at people who ask for extra help. He makes a big deal if you don't understand something. He's just very ignorant, not so helpful, and just doesn't know how to be nice.

Seems to take pleasure in making fun of students. Full of himself and not much else.

he makes fun of people a lot. He also doesnt explain things and is very unclear. The good thing about him is that he does magic tricks with us, which are pretty bad and boring

Wonderful teacher, need I say more? Holds reviews in the mornings sometimes. And considering how very busy he probably is (returns exams next day) thats a considerable achievement.
