It was one of the most interesting classes I've ever had. Maybe the most. That said, a whole bunch of opportunities and experiences came my way in that class.
This class is not for academically faint of heart. A good grade requires an honest effort. Mr. Harkin is a very good teacher and a vastly interesting person, and while he may play favorites, that is not reflected in his grading. He is always happy to help those who do put in an effort, and certainly wants to see them succeed. I recommend this class, if you are willing, as it will prepare you for a positive academic future.
Harkin'll think you're great IF, you follow his precise rules! He's got lots of great stories to tell, and will extend a unit for a day or two if the class is not getting it.
I had the "dice man" about 11 or 12 yrs ago.... If this was around I would have rated him then...He is an awesome teacher...even after I graduated I had him check my papers. You have to be willing to learn. He will NOT allow you to suck in his class. Trust me I tried it, but he pushed me to my full potential.
He was a great teacher he did play favorites, bit I mean if your quite and do your work he will like you.
He is an awesome teacher and will help anyone who needs it. He doesn't pick favorites, he just won't help those who don't want it. He gives people many chances. It is difficult though.
Mr.Harkin is a great teacher. His class is hard but if you do all the work it and take good notes the class is easy. He is has many great stories to tell
Jeremy Harkin is a great teacher with a vast knowledge in the field of Literature. He is the reason I am, myself, getting into teaching. He is not an easy teacher, yet not hard either. He helps you to relate to the stories in
I currently have Mr.Harkin and can be harsh but only wants the best for his students. He is helpful and creates an awesome learning experience for all. His work is difficult yet good to know for your future. If you choose to
Best teacher I ever had! Europe trip was the greatest!
I've only had him this year for a month, but I've learned more about school and life in that time than I've ever learned from any other teacher. He's pretty amazing.
plays favorites and if you arent one you wont get an A and he doesnt teach main ideas but only focuses on small tedious details. I HATED HIM
Mr. Harkin teaches a very challenging class, but it's worth doing in the end. He cares about ALL of his students and will help anyone with anything. Mr. Harkin is hands down the best teacher I've had.
amazing person. learned so much about school and life. works really hard and has offered great trips to kids in the past. both my children have had him in class and toured with him. he's a jewel of a person, teacher, friend.
Too familiar with students; wolf in sheep's clothing.
I love harkin. Yeah his class was hard to pass but thats just because he had high expectations and didn't let you slack off. plus english isn't my best subject. he taught me a lot and now i'm 90% better at writing.
Do not take his trips he offers to Europe. He is making money by offering the trip. He does not spend any time except with his favorite students. He builds up the trip to sound awsome but it only is because of the kids.
He is a good English teacher, I am impressed with Mr. Harkin.
The Dice man is an awesome guy, but his class is very very hard.
It's summertime and I WAY miss the Dice Man...the best Junior teacher--I want him as a senior as well! :-)
What can I say? Nobody, NOBODY prepares you for college like The Dice Man...keep doin' the right thing--if you ever read this Harkin!
Rock on Dice Man! You are awsome, we learned a lot! Thanks for the stories they kept us awake!
Harkin is one of the best teachers I have had the chance to experience. He has made a ever-lasting affect on my life, both academic and social. Your invaluable
The Dice Man is the best teacher i have ever had. Harkin was the only teacher who cared about me as a person and not just a student. a great impact on my life.
