He is an awful teacher and an awful human being. He's a small man with something to prove. He acts like he knows everything and likes to have power over teenagers in order to feel good about himself.

Half the classes you end up doing nothing but listening to him talk about himself. The other half of the classes you end up failing tests that don't actually matter. Worst English teacher I've ever had.

YOu will leran absolutely nothing, you will have a ton of tests and papers neither of which are ver corrected or graded, i got an A on sverla papers last year that i didnt write, just make sure to get a good grade on the final and that will be your grade for the year.

Flat out, worst teacher I have ever had. Class is not structured, tests and quizzes that have no impact on your final grade are administered at least twice or even three times a week (yes, out of four classes). Plays favorites. Bases your year grade solely on the final exam.

he is a fantastic teacher who tries to coach his students to think for themselves instead of telling them the meaning of the books he tries to get them to figure it out on his own. He teaches important life lessons a long with literature. He ties all subjects together and as long as you follow his trail of thought you will have learned more from him then anyone else in your life. GO WHITE MAN!!!!!

No matter how much work you do, if you behave you'll get a B. Guaranteed. Really funny with his dirty jokes and stuff, but he's extremely disorganized and sometimes all over the place.

He picks,um, 6 kids in each class & then proceeds to pay no attention to the other 18+. Doesn't grade on work, but on how much he likes you.

I wish he could be more organized and not gab on like a talking toy. I learn better visually which means I need things to be written on the board, but he never uses it. Nice though

Honestly, this man is a joke. He doesn't read papers, he just gives a grade based on how much he likes you. The fact that he is still teaching is just wrong.
