His quizzes and tests are either way too easy or way too hard. There's no in between. Sometimes I don't understand what he;s saying and he whispers a lot. He says "HEY IDONT LIKE YOU" and "I WANT MY PEOPLE THINKING" that gets annoyinf and repetitive. Otherwise, hes an okayish teacher, The "transcribe your notes everyday" thing is unnecessary and useless. Treats us like we;re babies. Its been 3 months and he still doesnt know my name ;(

Mr. Hererra is a very good teacher and he helps you if you ask him. He doesn't ignore anyone. His tests are easy if you pay attention in class and study as well. And the "hey you! I don't like you" means that your not participating. It means that you're not known for answering the questions, he actually does like you, but its a joke and the kids that get offended are ed for not understanding.

He is an awesome teacher. He always helps me when I need it and I ALWAYS get a 90 or above on my tests. I got really high 90's on my report card. The thing that he does with 'Hey I don't like you' is just to tell you that you're not known enough in the class. He almost never picks me to "pick a victim" because I participate. He only picks people, in my class, who hardly ever raise their hand or those who he doesn't know so well.

He is "straight" he doesn't have a personality or any emotion... but VERY RARELY you see him laughing. I wish you luck on this journey with him.. You will need it. He always yells," YOU I DON'T LIKE YOU!!" or when u need to go to the bathroom he says" GET OUT", and it is offending.
