His main priority is making sure his department looks good in comparison to other schools. He has no filter and says rude things to kids on a weekly basis. If you don't fully commit yourself to making him and his shows look better he won't like you. If you try to do anything besides drama throw any conflicts out the door because he has no flexibility and will try to guilt you. In your first class with him he'll try to lure you in but after a while his only intentions are to use you for his image

I hated him. He plays favorites and I don't know what I did, since I'm a quiet student. I failed his essays for no reason and he set me back 3 years in writing. I gave up on writing stories until I got into college. I got a B but I absolutely hated him, which takes a lot for me. What a jerk. (Published an essay on how bad a teacher he is.) He is NOT an English teacher. I took him for drama and got an A. He still hated me.

the best part is just how funny and entertaining he is. but bottom line: he plays favorites. if he doesnt like you, youre not gonna have a good time with him as a teacher. things that make him like you include being involved in EVERYTHING including drama club and auditioning for everything you can, also if you had an older sibling he really liked, he will be fond of you right away. but sometimes....he just wont like you the second he meets you...and youre never quite sure why +lots homework /:

He is horrible! He comments on other people in a negative way, and points out their flaws.....and if you don't email him when you are sick, he gets REALLY pissed.

He's well-read on so many subjects which makes him well-rounded and thorough as a teacher, but, he's also exquisitely charismatic and is very passionate about his students. TAKE HIS CLASSES!! AUDITI

I like Mr. Bengford alot. He's a good teacher as long as you do your work. If you don't, well, it's your own fault that he doesn't like you.

unfair, assumes you know things (like MLA format stuff), pegs you as an A, B, or C student at the beginning of the year, and it's hard to break out of it

in drama, he's very creative. in englishIIWWH, he creates a very competitive, edgy atmosphere. sometimes compassionate, sometimes quite rude/blunt. mixed bag.

Good teacher, in general. Not so nice person and can randomly get annoyed about small things. Not much grammar teaching but then you should know it all by then.

Very cool freshman teacher. He is most of the time funny, and knows how to be a great guy. Sometimes he can get angry, I don't know why. Kind of random.
