SUPERB teacher. Two consecutive years learning Spanish from him could suffice for the remainder your high school career. All students who have not had the chance to be taught by him have missed out on a great opportunity. It's a great shame that he retired, but his rest was well deserved. I.C.C.

If he comes back- just join the CLUB DE EXTRA HELP for an easy A (learned that 4th term)- beware he may make u do pushups. But emoinonal, and make sure you are too. Do a GREAT job on HW, and studyhard

Picks faorites. It's easy to get an A if you always speak in Spanish but his grading is confusing and based on how much he likes you.

Definitely someone who had his favorites...and if you weren't one of them, you were screwed. Could be very self-righteous and sanctimonious at times. Had him back in the 80s and surprised he's still teaching, to be honest.

There are some teachers who would be better if they didn't teach and let us read textbooks. This is definitely not one of them.
