I had him for Global History and in my experience he's a great teacher, he's very nice and tries to help students improve their grades by having extra credit homework. Hes easy going and the homework isn't too bad. However, sometimes he expects too much from his students. For example, he didn't explain the MIA essay well enough and when most of the class got 70s he refused to take responsibility and instead blamed us. My average dropped 4 points. I will never forgive.
Pertaining to the documents ABD whatnot...
he is my uncle and very nice it would be better if he was not a jet fan. Go Miami!
he is amazing and really fun. he makes class easy to learn and funny if your willing to behave
He is a decent teacher, and guess what. You have to do homework in high school guys. e gives it out twice a weak and if you had a different history teacher they would give homework 3-4 times a weak. Thats almost equivalent to his homework length.
Whoever thinks he's a bad teacher is probably going to SCCC for their first year of college, good luck!
Hes an OK teacher but the homework he gives is Bull. It takes 1 hour to do his normal homework and 2-3 hours to do this homework called an outline. Shouldent he figure out his class is not doing homework from everyones HW grade averaging in about the 55-70. Its bull.
i have him for eco/gov the man is insane. he rambles on and on and gives unbearable projects. our current project is a debate infront of the class with another student. we had to create a visual and a factsheet as well. plus a bibliography in which we discussed the credibility of our sources. almost everyones grades are poor. other teachers go easy on their seniors but he works us harder than anyone and is very unreasonable. no matter what u cant get a good grade. the class is irate. he makes me sick.
I've had him before and was under the impression that he was as kids say a "cool guy"but I was mistaken. He is not the teacher to have for Economics/government. He tends to go on mindless rants that have no point to them at all. He gives out work and projects as if it were a regents class. He is just not the teacher you want for your senior year.If gotten as a eco/gov teacher..try to switch to a different teacher within the first week of school. Ask any of his current students,responses will be the same.
hes a very good teacher and an easy grader just gives a ton of home work
great teacher. a little loquacious but good. one of the nicest teachers though. if ur having a bad day he'd be one of the first people to take time out to listen to you. i'm actually smart in history this year
he's not bad, but he gives alot of homework. i do well in his class though.
