He was such a good teacher! He's really funny, too...kinda hahaha. If you pay attention and actually try to learn then his class will be easy; he was one of-if not, my-favorite teacher this year
I understand why a lot of people wouldnt like mr johnston but if u get on his good side at the beginning of the year and just do your hw and do good on his tests then u should be fine and get an A in his class. Also my writing has improved so much since ive ahad him
i think hes nice but he does pick favorites. if you get on his good side its an easy class...but he is really boring
worst teacher ever. so boring & not funny at all. best part of the year was when he left and we had a student teacher
One of the worst teachers I've ever had. He picks 'favorites' and is totally unfair when it comes to grades. SWITCH BEFORE IT IS TOO LATE.
The reason you see people complaining that he is an unfair grader is because he grades based on how good your essays are. I can tell when I write a good essay and when it is a bad one, he grades them accurately
he's kinda out there and i don't think i learned much. i must have had a really good class...
people give him too hard of a rap. i learned so much from him that i'm giong to carry w/ me to college! He is a nice guy and yes he may grade some things hard he also gives you a lot of free points that help boost your grade. just give him a chance and he'll give you one. he doesnt make you annotate
I liked Mr. Johnston!!! I learned so much from him. This is the only English class I have taken where I actually felt like I learned something. He is a very nice man; and I think he's also very smart.
he's boring but nice....i think he just needs to not be stiff in class and loosen up a bit...
I didn't like him. Hardest grader EVER!!! Sometimes he was nice. I'm SO glad I didn't get him this year. Change your schedule if you get him. PRONTO!
he's so awesome, really knows his stuff, so talented, helps each of his students grow, incredible, i'll miss him so much!
Mr. Johnson is awesome! He's a very funny guys and it's so sad that he's retiring after this year!
If you're not a stoner, or constantly trying to cheat off of someone he's actually a good person, but you do have to go that extra step to get an A in the class.
Awesome teacher. If only I could be with him all four years, He's retiring after next! :-(
i graduated years ago, but because of you I am still in the arts.
this is the geatest person in the world! it's so terrible that he's retiring next year but at least i'm a junior so i have one more yr with him, that's all :(
All of you should be so fortunate to have Mr. Joel Johnson.
He is a very bad teacher. He grades us like we are AP, but we arent. Should not work there any longer
ok...he gave me detentions for asking someone a question...he made up be dead silent in class for 4 days straight!!
oh my g-d! best teacher ever! i miss play practice already!
Mr. J is really cool but I wasn't a huge fan of contemp. I hear that his writing classes are pretty cool though
I'm definately leaving high school a better person because of him.
The coolest person I've ever met-also the most fair caster-hilarious nice guy
Contemp was the best non-musical acting class at SHS!
