I had Mr. Blair for AP lang and his Shakespeare class about a decade ago. He is one of the single best teachers I have ever had. The skills I learned in his class helped me throughout college and were a big factor in me getting into a PhD program. I strongly recommend him as a teacher because the things you learn will last well beyond high school.
Jeff's AP Lang class is difficult, especially for people who are easily intimidated. He has a very effective and clear teaching style. Though, if I were a student I would elect to take his Shakespeare class. He's a little more laid back while he's teaching about his favorite subject and the activities made it a blast!
Mr. Blair is an awsome teacher and you will learn alot in his class. Just ask for help and he will help you. You will pass the AP exam.
Difficult, but well worth the extra effort. You will learn more in a year with Mr. Blair than in all of your other years of English combined.
Mr Blair isn't an easy A, that's for sure. But you can learn a lot! He has a great dry sense of humor that a lot of people may not catch onto. Loved his class.
Mr. Blair is definitely my favorite teacher. I was so terrified of him in the beginning, but he's super nice and understanding. He doesn't tolerate laziness, which is how he brings out my best!
i really apreciate teachers that provide you work that helps you in the long run. but the !@#$ i received from blair is unbelievable. i would've rather watched paint dry. he hasnt taught me anything
He is a good guy, but man, his sense of humor is rediculous. He is quite arrogant (meaning he thinks he knows everything). His AP classes will make you work you and expect to fail or do crap.
Although Jeff Blair can be intimidating and has a strong tendency towards throwing blunt objects(desks) at his students, he genuinely cares about the student's success/achievement
Mr. Blair is a great teacher and amazingly helpful, especially compared to the other English teachers at the school. His sense of humor is also really funny if you're smart enought to get it =)
I had Mr. Blair in the 2005-2006 school year for AP English Language, it was by far the most helpful English class I have ever taken in my life. Mr. Blair knows how to engage students, loves his topic, and maintains a stern yet appraochable tone in class. Overall, Mr. Blair's rigourous class (USMC boot camp for English, "tough love" teaching) proved difficult to master, yet effective. Despite his somewhat "over the top" demeanor in the class room he is very accepting of concerns if approached.
Greatest English teacher in the school. Can really connect and knows exactly what he's talking about.
Undoubtedly the best teacher I've ever had. His course is tough, but if you survive, it's the best class you'll have in english. He's worth it. "TONE!"
