Best teacher I ever had. He was most responsible for my high SAT score. He treated me fairly even though I was a well known athlete in an honors class, sadly this was not the case with most teachers of honors classes....

Looking back, he was perhaps the BEST english teacher I ever had. He taught me such much and I definitely learned a lot from his class. Though his dirty humor sometimes got old

Looking back, he was perhaps the best English teacher I ever had. He knew exactly what he was doing and taught in such a way that anyone who tried could succeed in his class.

People are way too sensitive. Yes, he makes jokes about people but he is only kidding. He is one of the funniest people I have ever known and he is an excellent teacher. He will be missed.

Mr. Regan is the kind of teacher I wouldn't want to see outside of school, but is a very knowledgeable person. Has a tendency to favor the females.

He needs to learn how to communicate with his students. A very smart man, but could not teach the students. I learned a lot more in the grammer unit than I did in the literature unit.

Harsh grader, thinks he's always right, and funny to the point of irritation. My opinion is that he's nice, but too arrogant to care.

Mr. Regan needs to treat his students more fairly and listen to new ideas. He needs to realize that his ideas aren't foolproof and accept arguments from others

If you give him a chance and have a sense of humor, his class is awesome! He is very funny and you can't take what he says to heart. He's awesome.

He is not a "bad" man or teacher (as in previous rater). The "good" he does IS offset by a condescending attitude, which has no place in a classroom.Be nicer!

I think Mr. Regan is pretty nice, but I just think he's a little harsh on scoring sometimes. All around, tho, he's a likable person.
