not a bad teacher, but he seems bored with his job, too focused on theatre, and gives special concideration to theatre people.

Although Mr. Motes is a nice man, he's not a great teacher. His favorite students are the ones who disrupt the class, never study, and are constantly talking. If only he could get the class to focus..

Mr. Motes is as good for Latin 2 as he was for Latin 1, and Latin 2 is far more difficult. A great guy to talk to, he makes Latin very enjoyable and teaches it very well.

He picks favorites, and his favorites are always the people who talk and disrupt class. We never get anything in class, he's really moody, and annoying.

He's never serious, he picks favorites, and can be rude. He never disciplines his favorite students, so the class is always out of control.

His methods just kept getting worse and worse each year. If you don't memorize everything the more you'll be screwed. Nice person though.
