I had Doone/r in my English Lit. class 2002/3. One of the best teachers I had to prep me for my SAT's and ACT's- he was always laid back, but expected perfection; and if you didn't give you best, you got told so by him in front of the class. I really hope he hasn't been fired, he really made my senior year memorable (went to an Elliott Smith concert and ran into him with another awesome teacher- Coriatti).

Mr. James Doone... Was a very interesting man. He was very chill, laidback, and handsome. He has a fantastic taste in music. He picks on the students he likes the most. If he shows hatred towards you, it means he secretly loves you... true story. He's a cool guy. You will learn alot. Try to make it on his wall of fame. English 2 with him was an experience I will never forget. He makes learning really interesting.

I had Doone for english 2 and he actually wants you to learn but he is also very laid back. He is a total surfer dude && talks like one. He looses a lot of things. Doesn't prepare very well but that's good for students because then you don't do it. I had to miss the last day of school and i told him i needed to take my final early, when it came to it he had forgotten so i didn't have to take it && just got a N/A , lucky me :)

I had him for English 2 Honors. He keeps things really down to earth. Honestly you take the class seriously you'll do fine. Vocabulary is hard though so don't forget when you have a test or your screwed. Out of the three teachers I would say he is the hardest, but not only will you actually learn but you will also be able to bring your grade up in many different ways. My biggest tip is pray that you get on a good group team on both semesters. Most fun english class EVER!!!! Stick with it!

Fairly good teacher. He knows his stuff, but he doesn't really take time to go over anything. He acts more like a student than he does a teacher.

Doone is absolutely hilarious, one of my favorite teachers. You have to have thick skin though, because he makes fun of everyone.

Doone thinks he's cool, but I'm cooler. That's why he got jealous and locked my yearbook in his classroom and took off last day of school last year. I forgive you Doone, 'cause they took your cave.

I think he's cool because he never takes antything too seriously. He is completely gone and will sometimes just stop in the middle of a lecture for no reason. As a teacher he's not the best, but it's

I can't complain about the vocab because I always did well on the tests. I had fun with the Watership Down thing, though my group was full of slackers.
