he's a great teacher. Even thought i was his favorite person out of all the years and plus some he was still a great teacher. Taking his class was probably the first time i understood parts of history. I don't think he ever showed that he had a bad day. He was very cheerful and especially after the cowboys win'! He's a genuine teacher that you can go to for any problem. Im happy to have had him as a teacher and a amazing person in my life. I recommend him to everyone.
