Mr. Evans is bomb. Definitely prepares you for the AP test and conventional writing in general. A lot of people say that it might be kind of boring, but I disagree. He's amazingly funny and tries his best to make class enjoyable for all.
Mr. Evans was one of the best English teachers I ever had. He is always willing to help students and makes sure to explain things in class to the best of his ability. West High English is lucky to have a good teacher.
Mr. Evans is extremely enthusiastic, which makes discussions in his class so much fun. He's always there if you need help or have ideas on writing. I really loved having him as a teacher because he goes really deeply into our literature. He also gives plenty of chances for people to do well on essays if they go to him for help.
Really fun and interactive class. Remember to be involved in class discussions and take in his advice
His grading is extremely subjective; he doesn't have a rubric for essay grading. He doesn't grade essays fairly, and I don't even think he reads all of them. I understand why people say that he's "awesome" or "chill." But that doesn't make him a good teacher. He doesn't really teach much, and he killed my love for writing.
one of the best teachers at west, only downside is you have Secura the other semester for thanatology :/
I can see why the post at 4/20/08 disliked Mr. Evans. Clearly, he did not have a superb control over his grammar, seeing as how he has created a paradox by stating, "even if you're writing is excellent." Now, I'll let you read that a bit more first...Yes my good sir/madam, Mr. Evans was clearly out of his mind to not give you those marks you wanted, "you're" writing/grammar is superb.
He is a really chill teacher that is down to earth and one of the few teachers that makes an effort to understand your situation. An all around good english teacher.
He's a nice guy, but I don't really think he teaches you very much. His grading is very arbitrary, especially on essays and such, so it's very difficult to succeed even if you're writing is excellent.
Probably the coolest, nerdiest teacher you'll ever have, Mr. Evans is pretty amazing when he teaches but also a bit difficult. His participation point system is a little strange but he's still great.
Mr. Evans is one of the best English teachers. He is so chill and down-to-earth and understands kids, not like other ones that put themselves up on pedestals and treat every student like a delinquent.
Mr. Evans is funny, helpful, and just all-around rocks
Mr. Evans is the best teacher at West. Case closed. Goodbye.
Mr. Evans is the single best teacher I've ever had. He's funny, awesome and cool!!
Mr. Evans is so awsome!! he is one of the nicest teachers ever
Mr. Evans is boss, cuz he makes everything funny and can keep us awake during the class (unlike some teachers I know...) :)
Plays the bagpipe! (but couldn't eat four saltines in less than a minute)
Has a great personality and is fun to listen to!The class work could get boring at times, but when u think about what he's trying to teach u, u can enjoy it.
Mr. Evans is so awesome! At the beginning of the year I wasn't sure, but he is really nice/funny. Everbody take English 1 Honors!!
I loved Mr. Evans, he's the reason I am a highschool english teacher.
Mr. Evans really cares about the students, and is quite entertaining.
