mr madrid is the best teacher on campus hands down like legit ask anyone, even tho u a commie, i think u the realest thanks for a great year i wish u the best
Took him for non-western cultures back in the day when I was a youngin'. My brain had to be a sponge to soak up all the KNOWLEDGE he be spittin'. We also had a few laughs here and there along the way, so that's pretty cool.
Great and extremely dedicated. It's impossible not to like this guy. He's fricking awesome! Extremely knowledgeable and can communicate ideas in a clear and memorable way.
Not just the most interesting teacher at troy. He is THE most interesting person I have ever met, hands down. Having madrid is such a blessing.
Hands Down Greatest Teacher Ever! He is so relatable and might need to be hired by Dos Equis for most interesting man in the world. His stories are enthralling. He even allows students to sleep in class, but no matter how tired we are, we don't because he is just that entertaining. The class itself is extremely hard, as AP Euro Tests are ridiculous, but Mr. Madrid will help you in any way you can and his teaching means you are almost guaranteed to get a 3 or above on the AP. Amazing Teacher
A GOD AMONG MEN WE HUMANS DO NOT DESERVE HIM!
If you don't have Mr Madrid there is no point in coming to Troy. He is bae. HE MADE ME. PEOPLE LAUGH SO HARD THEY SHART IN HIS CLASS! MADRID>LIFE
"Freshmen... I hate freshmen." lol Mr. Madrid is HILARIOUS Great history teacher!
Hands down, THE BEST TEACHER AT TROY HIGH SCHOOL.
He makes it so fun and interesting, you WILL learn stuff. He was the only reason I looked forward to school for the first few weeks of the new school year. From fun if useless cocktail party information (CPI), to his legendary exploits at Troy and abroad (ask him about the time he climbed the pyramids, the 75 theses of troy, or snuck in the senior yearbook photo), class is never boring. Also, is a communist. How could anyone hate this teacher?
Mr. Madrid is still the best teacher I've ever had, even two years out of college. He made AP Euro enjoyable and easy to remember. Just make sure you study for the test and pay attention in class (how could you not -- his lectures are 10/10) and you'll do fine both in his class, and on the AP Exam :)
He's the best teacher... he's the only reason I enjoy Ap Euro at all. If it wasnt for him I would have dropped out. If you get Mr.Madrid, get ready for the best class ever. Filled with entertainment, his enthusiasm will keep you smiling until class is dismissed. :)
He is the most interesting teacher I have ever had; he makes history very fun.
after getting straight-As all my life i was enrolled in AP classes when i started at Troy. one of which was "non-western civ" with mr. madrid. this class made it clear that i couldnt "coast" to an A or B anymore. i really had to try. i loved being challenged and i agree with the person who said that he/she never looked at the clock in his class. mr. madrid is the best teacher that i have ever had. he always said he was going to name his first son "xerxes", i REALLY hope he did that.
Best teacher I've ever had. He knows how to make history interesting, and keep the attention of his students. His stories are the best and we learn a lot.
My favorite teacher of all time. Love everything about him. he's extremely nice, funny, and genuinely cares about his students. I just wish he wasnt the only decent teacher in this school. The school has very many terrible biased teachers.
I had Madrid for 2 years: Geography IB-SL and AP Euro. Overall, an incredible and genuine person. He had a lot of good stories to tell, he knew history inside and out, and he actually cared about the students. Honestly my favorite teacher on campus.
BEST TEACHER EVER... If u get him you are blessede!
Literally, the best thing that's happened to me at Troy. Madrid changes your perspective on life and really helps you grow as a person. And you actually remember what he teaches. He's the best teacher at Troy.
Madrid is the best teacher ever! Made my Troy experience so much more fun. You will remember his stories for the rest of your life! He understands Troy students really well, realizes the pressure we are put under and helps give us real world perspective as well as lightens up the mood at the school. WILL NEVER FORGET HIM!
Words cannot describe how awesome this teacher is. Easily the best teacher i have ever had. Supportive, fun, helpful and understanding.
Probably the best teacher on campus. He tells unique stories and incorporates his lessons into his class. Best teacher I ever had.
Certainly one of the most unique educators I have ever even heard of. An amazing teacher who can always cheer up his students. One of those figures who change minds and lives. For good or bad, well...
he is the best history teacher ever....i love his different stories.... and he is very funny.....and i love the way he acts out different parts of history...
Once in a lifetime teacher (: Has memorable lectures, a fantastic sense of humor, and a great attitude. The best friend you wish you had.
Keeps students entertained while still getting lecture done in time before test. Will adjust test days to ensure enough time to finish lectures. One of the best on campus
AMAZING teacher! His class is one of the few classes in which I never seem to look at the clock because I'm so interested in what he's saying.
Mr. Madrid is THE BEST TEACHER EVER. He knows how to get students to pay attention and his instructions are very clear and precise. His famous stories are also very interesting. He knows how to make history fun for his studen
He understands that students aren't insterested in what their learning, so he makes it interesting. Best teacher I have ever had
TIPS: This man is great. stay on his good side. RESPECT others' belongings. DO homework (especially the reading). PARTICIPATE!!! When you need to blame someone, blame MR ALLEN (they're really friends).
Wonderful teacher who makes every class memorable and exciting.
Mr. Madrid is a fantastic teacher. His lectures are fun and captivating. He works with the students, moving around test days and making things easier on us. OUTSTANDING
WITHOUT A DOUBT, THIS MAN IS~~ THE MOST INTERESTING MAN IN THE WORLD. I have never had a teacher like him and I don't think I ever will again. Viva la revolution!
BEST EURO TEACHER IN THE ENTIRE WORLD! Awesome stories and animated teaching style keeps the class interesting.
I loved having Madrid as a teacher, but, I hated the class. I really don't remember anything about AP Euro other than the amazing CPI and his stories.
an anecdote: (on test day, turning in hw) "Mr. Madrid, i didn't finish my homework, can I turn it in tomorow?" "Why didn't you finish it?" "Because it's homework..." "Hm. Good point. You can turn it in tomorrow"
He should be a lawyer...he's really good at convincing people. He's also a really cool XC coach
he should have a quiz or test on only his little stories. example) what did mr madrid sell his sister for in morocco?
he is off topic WAYYY too much & the tests are harddd! he barely covers test materials !
This man is one of the best history teachers, not to mention a great coach and friend.
really great teacher. SO funny, it's ridiculous, and when you're in his class, you learn w/o realizing that you are learning b/c he's SO entertaining. his tests aren't easy though, you do have to study for his class
mr. Madrid is probably the funest teacher you will EVER get. sometimes he gets off topic... but he really knows his stuff~ he's super helpful and he really likes respect
Awesome teacher. He goes off on a tangent sometimes, but then again, those stories make history memorable. Keeps you awake, and understands when you have difficulties.
He taught my summer school driver's ed class one day. He is cool. He told us all about the illegal stuff he did. He didn't even teach us a thing. He told us everything not to do, which could be his form of teaching. Great
Mr. Madrid is the best teacher I have ever had in my life. I love him and I hope he starts taking kids on Euro trips again, because I would stay in Troy just for those. =]
Mr. Madrid is the coolest teacher i have ever met. His stories are awesome and very very funny. He makes everything fun. If you get him you are in for a great time.
THE BEST TEACHER EVER. Awesome stories and lectures are hilarious. Actually makes me wanna learn. Pink Gorillas!!
Pink Gorillas was the best story ever. Take his class just so you can try to coax that story out of him.
Good teacher, he keeps you interested in the topic (hooked you!) has a bunch of stories that are also entertaining, and is overall a cool guy.
Mr madrid is the coolest he and Mr. Liem make a awsome combo
best class ever. makes my day just so much better. his stories are SO FUNNY!! nd i think he teaches well.
i love you Mr. Madrid. You seriously make coming to school worth it. I actually learn from you. It's amazing. =]
I actually learned more with him b/c I payed attention. I love Madrid, he's so awesome. and his stories...haha. Pink Gorillas...
at first, he is really cool and chill and fun. but later on, u realize how little u learn in his class and how his teaching is inferior to the other ap euro teacher
YAY MR. MADRID! He said he doesn't know anything about Pink gorillas to our class. =(
Uggh...I went over the char. limit. Well... he's funny, AND knows his stuff, etc. YAY
He's funny, but he leaves out a lot of material while lecturing. Spends most of his time telling stories.
CPI is so awesome. going in his class is like a total ab workout cuz its non stop laughter. great teacher.
his tests are too hard compared to liem's ap euro
average grade difference between the two teachers is too large
RECOMMENDED - Great teacher for IB and AP classes. Fun and interesting stories. Covers material well and prepares for AP test. Don't fall asleep in this class.
AWESOME lectures, the most fun class i have ever taken, and of course who couldn't love us time.
He's one of my favorite teachers at Troy. Lectures are fun, he's energetic, and you most likely won't fall asleep during lecture. He's not a hard grader.
Cool teach, but hey, keep the stories to yourselves, just let him tell 'em
awesome teacher! so nice and friendly! truly cares about his students
Such a cool teacher. He makes history FUN! And no, I don't know anything about a pink gorilla, do you?

WHOO HOO GO MR MADRID king of room 504..but not outside it...

Amusing stories, but seems that sometimes facts are sacrificed for entertainment
Made it fun with all the CPIs and the pink gorillas and ice rink under the gym
A funny and awesome teacher who know his subject material!!!
