When I first was on the RateMy network (Face/Body mostly) I gave Mr. Lawson high marks. But looking back 14 years later, he is a corrupt man that tries to turn students against each other based on their heritage. Avoid him if you can. Wes Morse is much better.

100000000000000/10 Mr. Lawson is the BEST. I wish I got him for R.U.S.H. this year, and I'm so jealous of those who did get him. He's a super nice person, and I actually understand what he's teaching. I actually got a 5 on the STAR test for World History--he's an amazing teacher and he makes learning so fun! He has all these stories and videos that make it easier to understand! FROOTIES! Anyhow, he's a super GREAT teacher and you're lucky to get him. P.S. JOIN LEO CLUB! It's THE BEST! 2011-2012

The material itself is really boring but Mr.Lawson tries his best to make it more exciting, although he fails sometimes. Overall, I am impressed with the way he teaches...

He is a nice teacher and good man, but when it comes to actually teaching I'd have to rate him low. When approached with questions he does not clearly answer them. His class is also usually very rushed and stressful.

Mr. Lawson helped me adjust to the learning environment from a totally different culture and teaching style. He is also interesting and he has amazing stories related to history from his childhood which are always interesting to listen to. This semester Ms. Hoang has been our teacher but it has been nice to have Mr. Lawson substitute and see him around everyday at school. I thank him for his hard for and I hope I have him next year for US History.

Mr. Lawson is one of those teachers who changes your life. I love going to each and every one of his classes. His lectures are epic and have led me to actually enjoy history. He will be the reason I come back and visit Tino. Thank you so much Mr. Lawson.

Just an overall good person at heart. He truly cares about his students comphrehension of the topic at hand, and generally is an all around nice guy. Although, he is often seriously bogged down with stress at times, and whil;e it doesn't come across during class, it is obvious he is trying to get all that done during the time he does have, during tutorial and after school, making him a tiny bit difficult to approach during these times. Regardless of the timing though, he will still help any student in need.
