Mr. Gaines is my favorite teacher I've ever had. He really gives his students a taste of what hard courses are actually like, but in a manageable way. He is so funny and I look forward to hearing his stories daily.

Gaines is such a beast. Honestly one of the best teachers you will get. He is not at all easy, don't get me wrong. But you will come out of his class crazy smart. He's also hilarious. His sense of humor is dry but nonetheless funny. Great guy

Gaines was the best teacher I ever had in high school. It was incredibly fun with well done assingnments and pacing and a hilarious class atmosphere. He looks old and boring but is very exciting.

Don't be fooled by his seemingly expressionless face. This man is hilarious! He demands a lot, but the class is fun and I've learned a lot. His stories and jokes are so wierd and funny!
