I learned a lot in his class, but he is sooooo weird. Honestly, weird. He knows his stuff and as long as you don't get on his bad side he'll like you, but his tests are hard and he grades homework tough. I got good grades from him, but many didn't (in Geometry).

worked with him for geometry and algebra 2. POSSIBLY THE BEST MATH TEACHER I HAD AT THE MIDDLE SCHOOL. sure he's a bit eccentric but he's a great math person and was also a really relaxed mathcounts coach. although he's a red sox fan he'll like you even if you're a yankee.
