He changed my academic direction and I am better for it. Without him, I would not be where I am today. The best teacher/mentor I ever had, and I wasn't in APUSH.

Ten years later, I still remember how badly he treated me & how he loved his favorites. All students have a right to learn, not just Apushies. Who will he pick on in retirement?

Traumatizes too many students to make up for any redeeming qualities. Embarrassed me and others in front of class for no good reason. A scary/resentful man.

He knows a lot and that comes across very well. He teaches effectively. However, plays favorites and distances himself from the students.

Mr. McCoy is a very tough grader, but he rewards those who work hard and it is for this reason that I learned so much from him. A good teacher.

Plays favorites (although they might tell you otherwise). Can go from normal class to ranting on a student in record time. Good teacher. That's all.

He was such a bad teacher. He has the biggest ego in the world... and will only like you if you praise him. Needs to learn that APUSH isn't that great.
