Mr. A was an awesome teacher. He was clear and interesting while teaching (despite his tendency to digress into story mode), and didn't take BS from any of his students. His scolding was always hilarious.
It's a shame he's retiring. I hope he has a fun time.

I had Mr. A the very first year he became a teacher (87-88). He was personable, encouraging, down-to-earth and funny. In fact, because of his encouragement, I went on to get a degree in journalism and work as a writer.

Mr A was my summer school English teacher in '02. He is one of the best teacher's I've ever had... and didn't put up with much B.S. which was hard to find at CLHS.

Mr. A is a great teacher. the only reason he gets mad is if you are sitting around doing nothing. since it is a class you should be doing something productive.

dont get on his bad side, he tends to yell alot. poor guy has too much going on, isnt very personal.
is too scatterbrained himself to worry about our problems, but wants whats best for the staff and book as a whole. do your part and dont slack off and he
