Jun 07, 2007 Mr. Sunshine rules! He has a great sense of humor, and jokes with us students a lot, which makes history fun. On top of that I got above 100% on many of the tests. What a great teacher. Flag Rating

Mar 03, 2007 not only is he a bad teacher but he has a bad attitude towards his students, constantly makes fun of them and if he doesnt like you, he'll say the rudest and most innappropriate things ever. i didnt like him at all and i know for a fact that most of my class did not either.

Jan 12, 2007 use to be a good teacher. now his notes involve writting a random date on the board every now and then. i think he's just busy with his upcoming wedding.however thats no excuse to leave your students hanging.needs to stop cussing and flicking his students off, esp if he wants to be an admin.

Aug 15, 2006 he's a very good teacher, he helps you if you need it, and I like the fact that he's willing to let us have class discussions often..but he could tone it down a little with the cursing at students thing.. Flag Rating

Mar 04, 2006 Look, aside from his boring lectures and hard tests he does int the end make the class kinda fun...how many teachers joke around like he does and still make you learn? I dunno but at the very least I look forward to something new each day with him... Flag Rating

Feb 19, 2006 Look, he may have a poor sense of humor but at least he tries to make class interesting. And if you ever meet with him for help he really tries to help you. Flag Rating

Jan 15, 2006 He said that if his classes averaged a 4 or higher on the AP exams('04-05) he would dye his hair blond.. Alas, our avg scores were a 4.28 and he has YET to dye his hair!

Tests are very hard.
Quizzes are mediocre.
In class essays are graded more for grammar and coherence and less on historical details and concepts.

Oct 31, 2005 Sunshine has a "unique" personality. On terms of being a teacher, well he sucks. Personally, he made me hate history. He is unreasonable on grading essays and his quizzes are too vague. Flag Rating

Oct 28, 2005 While he doesn't really seem to be that great of a person, as a whole (i.e., he plays very strong favorites; If you're on debate, he'll like you), he's actually a very good teacher. He made the class killer and then like everyone aced the AP (lotsa 4's, and a disproportionate number of 5's). Flag Rating

Aug 12, 2005 I think he's a cool guy, but the AP World class is poorly taught. He *tought* us practically nothing, it was all "go read a book and we'll talk about it". A teacher should teach, not rely on his students to read the book and teach themselves, it's like he's only there to test us and nothing else. Flag Rating
