This man was an awesome teacher and person. I had the good fortune of having him as my English teacher 3 out of the 4 years I was at MPHS. I knew that he was an excellant teacher while I had him but as I went on to college I realized what a gem he was. God bless.
Mr. Newcombe is the best teacher I have ever had and probably ever will. I have learned more from him then I have from anyone. Anyone who has had the privilage of learning from him should be thankful.
although he is sometimes pushy with his point of view and his facts aren't always correct, he's a great teacher. He never fails to keep everyday energetic and lively. kudos newcombe
Loves pointing out the crude humor in everything we read. He's a great guy, great teacher, but he does seem a bit moody on some days. His test are fine if you read the stuff and listen to him.
Sincerely cares about teaching, but is just extremely annoying....especially if you have him 1st period. Just laugh at his stupid jokes and youll be fine.
Thought he was pushy with his view and did not encourage our own interpretation. A bit of a flake
He is by far the most amazing teacher I have ever had in my life. Works hard to show the students the true nature of each and every book. Truly cares about his kids. Gives hard tests but we lv them.
Best teacher on long island i love The Nasty he is great he does miss some school here and there but who dosent that last person dosent know what there talking about
Absent the last day of every quarter to grade assignments, dishes out "facts" that are horribly unproven/untrue and imposes his opinion on everyone, leaving no room for debate.
He's one of the best teachers in that school. I've learned "don't judge a book by its cover"
Mr. Newcombe was definately the BEST teacher I ever had. I loved the way he made us shake hands with the books when he passed them out.
I had Mr. Newcome as a 12th grader in AP English. I graduated in 1989 and still remember him as the BEST I ever had. I have been a teacher for 9 years and it's because of him!
This man is the best teacher. once you get to college you will realize how much his class helps. He is an amazing man who cares about his students.
He is the greatest teacher in the world! He is funny and the amount of facts he knows about the films we watch is incredable!
he works you but he makes english fun and is part of the reason why i'm becoming an english teacher.
Takes months to grade assignments, provides no useful feedback, refuses to consider others' opinions, and stubbornly holds factually erroneous beliefs.
Selfish!?! He stays after school to help students all the time, he's devoted his life to teaching. If anything, the man is an opinionated saint.
He's the best! Nowhere will you find a more passionate, knowledgeable English teacher. He made me want to be a teacher myself.
I had Mr. Newcombe twice (9th & 12th) in the late 80's. He was, and obviously still is an awesome teacher. He cared about me as a person. THANKS!
Mr. Newcombe knows his stuff and really loves the things he teaches. He looks kinda scary cuz he's so big, but he's a teddy bear. DO NOT GET HIM MAD AT YOU!
nice guy, will embarrass himself just to get a point across; cares about kids
