He's awesome, energetic, but at times, the energy can really start to wear you down. There is a lot of busy work everynight. He is super helpful if you need help after school or before school

probably the funniest and most lively class you will ever have. Not the greatest teacher, but he's effective. I would recommend him. Lots of busy work, though

Your Spanish will improve drastically because the class makes you grind out Spanish for the entire 50 minute period (and oftentimes longer). Extremely helpful and full of positive energy, and the life lessons in Spanish are hilarious. Academically, you will get off schedule very quickly but it doesn't matter since you learn more his way. Homework load varies a lot depending on which level you're taking.

Probably one of the most chill teachers EVER and he has outrageous amounts of energy, even though his class can get sometimes boring with the amounts of work he's awesome to see outside

This man is the definition of "positive energy". If you ever see him sad, give him a hug, becuase something DEVESTATING must have happened, and I can't imagine a hug wouldn't help him feel better. His class is just so much fun, and if you do the work, he loves you, and if he loves you, its an easy A
