Mr. May is the greatest English teacher at the high school. He is very smart, engaging, and makes English interesting, which I didn't think was even possible. He is a hard grader on papers and his tests are hard, but he will do all he can to help you. Also just a great overall teacher, knows how to make kids think in ways you've never thought before, learned more from Mr. May than any other teacher in that school

Joe May is one of the finest teachers Lake Zurich has to offer. I hope he is reading this right now. He taught me how to write a paper without just rephrasing the quotes. In APLAC, you are forced to do more than use Sparknotes on your books. This is a good thing. You will walk away with new knowledge. Mr. May is hilarious. His humor reminds me of David Sedaris. We read a Sedaris piece in APLAC actually--not a laugh out loud funny one… but if you read Sedaris you'll understand what I mean.

he's a very nice guy and he's very funny too. but you get very few grades and so every test and essay is extremely weighted. his tests are hard too. but it's an engaging class with lots of discussion!

I had him 2 years in a row, he was very smart, a good teacher and he had a good sense of humor. He recycles jokes a lot and is kind of scripted so by the second year i wasn't laughing anymore

AMAZING teacher. I can safely say that in two weeks with Joe May I learned more about the English language than I thought existed. You legitimately learn in his class, which doesn't frequently happen in English classes. He's hilarious and doesn't talk down to his students.
