best teacher I've ever had in my life, so wise and so smart, changed my view on a lot in life along with teaching wonderfully. Used literary books to not only teach us course work but to teach us important life lessons.

I had AP Seminar in 06 and I did not take advantage of the course very much. I wish I did. Fortunately, I remembered the authors we've read and that has done wonders. I've gone back to those readings and it's definitely worth it. You'd be surprised by who you fall in love with.

I took AP senior seminar with him and it was one of THE best classes I have taken to this day. We would read a bunch and then just sit in class for an hour and openly discuss the book, once in a while write papers. A-MAZ-ING!!

He doesn't teach you anything--not to mention he makes many of his female students feel uncomfortable... seminar should be taken away from him and given to a qualified teacher.

um, im not quite sure i understand everyones infatuation with this guy. maybe it had to do with him being laidback or with the light load of work. i dont know. BUT i do know that he was was one of the worst teachers ive had. EVER. he was not engaging or motivational. he would admit to not liking texts examined in class. hed even go so far as to call some books boring or lame. THAT DID NOT MAKE ME WANT TO DO MY HOMEWORK OR HAVE ANY INTEREST IN ANYTHING WE DID IN CLASS. you know? YOU KNOW!
