Kinda dickish. He once accused me of stealing his equipment because I had the same brand and he had lost his. No apology when he found his. Other than his personality the class was fine.
very unpredictable personality. Can be volatile, or very nice. Very strange, I dont like him, for he forgets who I am all the time. Weirdest guy Ive ever seen, always likes girls more than guys. DON'T PLAY ON HIS DRUMS WITHOUT ASKING! you wil immidiately be sent to principal.
If we could see what music opportunity looks like--well,it’d look like Mr. Butka.We’re given the chance to try out different instruments.He encourages all of us, without playing favorites.He allows many mini-solos
He's kind of forgetful and has a temper, but definitely has a good side as well!
He can be nice but he is kinda of a freak so that is why I don't like him I just wish that he would take a chill pill
Mr. B is hands down the coolest teacher at Bedford. If you arent a punk and you are genuinely nice to him, he'll have your back no matter what. Most memorable, helpful teacher. My man, MISTA B!
Such a nice guy! I only had him after school for Pit Band, never for an actual class. He was always so encouraging and would come up after rehearsal and tell me what to work on/doing well with.
I think he is the best music teacher ever. kid at BHS take him for granted. and dont deserve his awesomeness.
You're trying your best and that's all that counts. U may be weird, but that's okay. I can tell you really care about us doing well and thanks for actually caring about your students
Mr. James Butka is an amazing person. He helped me become a better human being and for this I am eternally grateful. Maybe kids should get to know the real person before they judge!
Mr. Butka is a wonderful person, he tries to please everyone, even the kids who are unbelievably cruel to him. He is not only an amazing musician but he is a fantastic teacher.
i don't see why people are so mean to this teacher, because he is really nice and helpful.
Mr.B is a little sketchy sometimes but when you get to know him hes actually a pretty good guy
I thought he was good teacher at first, but he takes all of his frustration out on his students and acts like a child when he doesn't get his way. I am begging to drop his class it is unbearable. :-(.
Mr. B is a really good guy. He's not sketchy, he's just alittle shy sometimes. Obviously he might come across as liking music kids more because he knows them better.
He's a great guy! He might come across a little odd at first, but he just wants everyone to do there best. He's also a great jazz musician!
a great musician, but is the worst teacher. Assumes we no everything and thinks people better at instruments are better people.
coolest music director ever. he really knows his stuff and is an excellent musician.
I think Mr. Butka is trying to be nice but it comes across as sketchy sometimes. And I don't really like it when he's in a bad mood... he takes it out on the class.
Mr.Butka is one of the best teachers i have ever had. He is always willing to help and always tries to relate to the kids.
Very good teacher. He's always willing to help during free periods and after school.
