As a person, Mr. A is an amazing guy. But as a teacher, he lacks a lot. In class, any teaching of the lessons is almost non-existent, but that is what the homework is for. And for any of you that lack in the category of homework, he will work his rear end off to make sure you come in after school to do retests and make-up homework just so you pass. Other than that, he is an awesome and nice guy. Super respectful and will definitely be checking in with him after my academic career.

Mr. A is one of three teachers that inspired me to become a teacher. His ability to connect with students was something I hope I can emulate. As a classroom teacher, he is not the best. He often times is multi-tasking while he should be teaching his class and just makes you read the textbook instead. He is very by-the-books when it comes to wearing an Id and tucking in your shirt, a little too much. Despite some flaws, he is one of the greatest men I have ever met, let alone teachers!

Honestly Mr. A is the greatest guy around. He's kind, caring, and overall a wonderful person. But he definitely picks favorites,
luckily I was one of them. Not the best teacher but a cool guy love Mr. A!

Aqua is by far the nicest guy you will ever meet. If you pay attention in class, and I mean really, you'll be fine. If you're struggling, talk to him. He's fairly good about helping you out and extra credit for him is a huge plus.
Amazing mentor and friend. Couldn't ask for a better teacher.

One of my favorite teachers in all four years. He's very passionate about his faith, but that's why he's a theology teacher. He's always willing to help and that's what makes him amazing.

Mr. A is pretty much never in class because he is doing something student council related. His quizzes aren't bad, and you can basically bribe him to get the grades you want. The only annoying thing is that he always thinks he's right, there's no arguing with him.

Mr. A is different. He isn't really on time, and he usually doesn't go over all the material in time for the test. I guess he's nice cause he gives EC. his CD are nice too (cookie days rule!)
