A very cool guy, but maybe not the best teacher. But loved by students.

Always asks about arbitrary details, and speaks condescendingly to the students of the Honors English class. He is a total maverick; while other teachers agree on their curriculum together, he just does whatever. Not that hard of a class, as in, not much work. Most days we sit doing nothing for the whole class. Quizzes ask arbitrary questions on seemingly unimportant details, so they can be challenging. Nice moustache, I guess.

in philosophy he doesnt engage the students in class disscussions. the class is silent except for him droning on. other times we read or write in total silence for 40 minutes.

Rediculously hard as an AP Lit teacher, but grades on a big curve and loves his classes. Most intelligent teacher in the school and one of the nicest.
