mr.adams is the best!!! not to mention that the ap test is a breeze after taking his class. and hes hilarious
great teacher. very inspirational,but sometimes not orginized
He could have been one of those life-changing, inspirational teachers for me but, he was only concerned about winning We The People - not teaching.
He is insperational and very fun. Easy to get along with and easy to understand. I'd love to just sit in his class all day.
I am in college to become a teacher, and Adams is the main reason for that. If you're willing to do the work, it's a great class. And yeah, he's a little pompous, but I always thought it was funny.
Adams is the kind of teacher who actually cares about his students and will inspire them to go further in life. His personality is loud so it rubs a few the wrong way, but take his class- it's amazing
Most arogant man i've ever learned from....He knew his stuff, but he also made sure you knew that he knew it....His class was more about him than it was you.
Good Teacher. Really inspirational. I will never forget being taught by Mr. Adams. He is a great man, and we totally get along. Although, he is getting a little heavy this year. But still great. Haha.
Mr.Adams is the best! He's always doing innovative things to try and get us interested in what he is teaching. He tries hard and has a great sense of humour. I'd reccomend him as a teacher
you are all fools to believe mr adams ever taught you anything. all he does is feed his own ego.
I like Mr. Adams...but for the most part I just love to make fun of him.
Adams is a great guy he really cares about his students and wants to see them do well and is an increadibly funny guy also his only flaw is that he is a little up tight, I am rly gona miss that class
Great Teacher. The only thing that bothers me is that sometimes when you try to talk to him one on one, he gets distracted easily if he feels what you are saying is not incredibly important.
cool monsieur adams. too bad he totally ignores me. i feel he only likes the ''preppy'' kids. too bad. but cool teacher overall.
He really cares about being not just a teacher, but a good teacher. A great speaker, and he really knows what he is talking about. This is a great class for people who want to really understand govt.
Mr. Adams is one of the best teachers that i've ever had. And i've only had him for summer school, so I hope to see him again!
WOW! YOU ARE DA BEST!! Mr. Adams rulz. u r too good at teaching...CLASS OF 08' DOMINATES!!!
Mr. Adams is the coolest, funniest and smartest teacher I've had at BHS. I've greatly enjoyed his class, and for the first time ever I like History!

Adams is the Buddha of all teaching. Hes the best teacher I have ever had and is by far the best at BHS. Brilliant guy and funny too!!!!!
really good teacher--gets a bit worked up but nothing wrong w/ that that justy makes it more interesting
Tests are very challenging!!! But I love when he refers books to read and makes me put life into perspective. Notetaking becomes tedious but I'll manage! Love his passion about teaching, but remember freshmen aren't at AP standards! You are great!
Mr. Adams is the best teacher I've had in a long time. He has made me think about many things in different ways. Not only does he make history fun, but I am actually learning stuff in his class. Rock on JAdams!!!

Got moved into his class at the semester and I love it way more than my old History class.
Mr. Adams has opened my eyes to some of the greatest things in life. Although his class is a little challenging, he always makes sure you know the stuff hes teaching and will always help when your unclear about something. He is deffinately one of my favorite teachers and i admire his passion for teaching. If i could i would pick his brain for hours! And to top it all off, he's a dad to two young girls, but that never stops him from giving precious time to make sure his classes understands the material.
Mr. Adams is the best history teacher EVER!!!!!!! He teaches great and makes it so you remember the facts that he had taught you. He is also very funny and very cool. He is AWESOME!!!!!!!!!
one of the best teachers at BHS i had him for freshmen history and can still find that when i walk into class i can basically recite his entire lecture. he knows how to make things stick through humor and a good teaching method
hes a good teacher but his test are WAY too hard! he always picks on my friends and I, even when we arent the only ones talking!!!!!lol
He picks on my friends and i! He is always rude to us, but he is a good teacher, i guess...
"Best Teacher at Bakersfield High." With phrases as "explodes off your palette", or "We crushed the competetion...", he finds a way to avoid the droll of school and make it interesting through life applications of the theories of philosophers past, and the always comical story. However,one the most distinctive aspect of his teaching is his addiction to Popeye's Chicken. What is in that chicken? Nonetheless, he commands well-deserved repsect, and as Machiavelli put it, "It is better to be feared than loved."
the best teacber i've ever had. gives hard tests though. he tells lots of funny stories about his daughter, wife, and the rest of his family. never a dull momen
Mr. Adams is descent. He's my favorite teacher, and his class is my absolute favorite.
He has a plethora of knowledge, and if you take the time to pay attention, you'll do well! He's helped my test grades improve greatly!
Is the best teacher in the history of the school!!!!!!!!!!!
He is an AWESOME teacher and we both like his enthusiasm! We actually like goin to history class now days! Thanks for makin history FUN!
He's great teacher and really helped me understand history this year.
often too idealistic, but he has no shame...and in this business, its PRICELESS! he makes boring subjects fun. hes a great guy...watch out for the "fake mad!"
JADAMS is one of the best teachers at BHS. He is very inspiring to all those who listen to what he has to say. GO JADAMS
AWESOME TEACHER! First time that a teacher made history fun to learn. ROCK ON JADAMS
Mr. A shows us history in a whole new way. Its my favorite class!
he is nice and very funny. he is never too embarassed to do something if he thinks it will help us learn. he is my favorite teachear and i am happy i was moved to his 2nd p. gate class
Adams is clearly an excellent teacher. His teaching methods are great and I'm liking history for the first time. Hes hilarious and uses his own life experiences
Man I don't know why so many hate Mr. Adams he is the coolest teacher i have ever had he is not afraid to be embarressed and is very clear in everything.
The best History teacher I have ever had! I actually don't dread going to history anymore. He is also very funny.
you are an awesome teacher and you actually make history enjoyable
This guy was meant to be a teacher.He has a passion for each of his subjects and will come to school sick just to get in that needed lecture.Conservatives Rock
This teacher is great he will teach you so much, not just about the material but about life and this will carry with you forever...
He is a very good teacher, he doesn't lecture but he communicates with us. He cares very much and does everything in his power to show us that he cares.
He has a passion for teaching and truly loves what he does. His enthusiasm is a huge help! He makes gov. fun and interesting! He is a wonderful teacher.
He is a great teacher who can answer all questions. He brings his stories into the class to draw the student's attention, and give them a worthwhile educatioN!
This teacher goes into much more depth than most teachers, and he expects a lot out of his students, but he wastes time once and a while. But nobody's perfect.
Mr. Adams is a wonderful teacher. He comes into my mind to tell me what world history is really about. It is really inspiring!!!!!
he has a passion for what he does and he tries to instill a love of government and economics in his students. Despite what others may say i enjoy his class.
loves to teach. its the only history class i havent fallen asleep in....and the only one where i didnt set every curve. i beat him racing though lol
He is one of the best teachers i have ever had in my entire school career.
Way cool. One of the few teachers that actually allows debate.
He is the single best teacher I have ever had. He really makes you socially conscious and interested in the material.
He cares about what he does, and thats a rarity in todays teaching world. he works hard for his students, and it is very commendable. he is a good teacher
So funny, so nice, teaches so incredibly well, inspirational, witty, incredibly smart.
He is eager to teach and knows what hes doing, which is something you don't see often. You learn alot and have a great time!
always contradicting himself. more concerned about being cool and funny than teaching. our class was always way behind mrs. polites class. didnt learn much at all but had one of the highest grades in the class. too moody. cant handle a large class
AWW MAN!! this teacher tought me not to just come to class, but to get involved in the material. he made me want to take econ in college this year. and that golden state exam i passed with high honors makes me feel all warm.
he gave me an idea of what knowledge reallly is....understanding not memorizatio
He's so passionate about his teaching, which made me want to learn!
