AWESOME. probably the nicest and most down-to-earth teacher at tj. his jokes are sorta corny, but it's okay because he's cool like that. as someone who has taken mr. lamb's religions class, i can assure you that he is NOT anti-christian. that's accusation is completely absurd.

really hates Christianity. when he teachers religions, he's virulently against Christianity. Great teacher but his resentment towards his first religion that was forced upon him gives the class a biased feeling.

I was a repeat Jay Lamb student. I took three classes from Mr. Lamb - Religion, Philsophy, and Humanities. I tried to get into his AP European History class, but it was too popular. He is an amazing educator. Thoughtful, considerate, and encouraging - I had never and have never since (I'm 29 now) have felt as comfortable in a classroom setting as I did with him.

He is a very moral person and expects everyone to treat each other with respect in his classes. He is a really nice man and a great teacher. The philosophy class I took was fantastic - the discussions took some crazy turns but were always somehow still related. Students often beg for more time to talk in class.

Of my cours years at TJ, Mr. Lamb's philosophy class was one of the easiest and most informative. He's really passionate and the class is discussion based - something very unique at a high school.

Philosophy was a great class, and Mr. Lamb was great at explaining the topics and guiding the class through some dense material. Very enjoyable class, and a great teacher.
