12/11/13 - Mr. V and his class have been two of the greatest experiences in my life. I truly thank him for all that he has done for me. He is a great great great great GREAT teacher and friend. People complain about how hard his class is and how mean he is but he is an amazing person. The secrets to his class are to work hard, keep improving, talk in class, and be open minded.

06/11/12 - Mr. V is a great guy and he has taught me so much. Yeah, people will say he's too hard and mean and arrogant, but a lot of times it's because they're not willing to put in the extra work. I love JV! Show More Show Less

06/04/12 - Mr V is seriously the most frustrating teacher ever. He has particular favorites and is the most arrogant man i know. He has no problem flaunting his arrogance or showing off how he his superiority over his students. His grades are so crazy-i am not talking about his essay grading-but grades in general. One little thing could kill you. He says that he doesnt care about the grade, but what you get out of the class but its lchs of course i care about the grade! Show More Show Less

03/05/12 - I love V. If you want to improve as a writer, he is willing to help you, but only if you put in the time. He is very smart, but a tad self-conscious. I will never forget him. Show More Show Less

08/29/11 - Mr. V is a very hard teacher. He is probably the smartest teacher on campus but he does have his downfalls. Although he is a very good writer, he doesn't really teach his students HOW to write. All he does is gives us in-class essays... basically trial and error. he also plays favorites with grading essays and projects. but he is a great teacher and definitely an experience to have if you go to LCHS.

08/18/11 - Mr V is by far and away one of the most intelligent people I know. For his AP class, it's almost impossible to receive an A first semester, but a handful of students manage in his honors class. It may be a lot of work, but trust me, do not switch out of his class. You are much more prepared for future english classes with experience in his class. Although he is very intimidating at first, the key is to volunteer and to ask for help. His favorite students are the ones that challenge themselves. Show More Show Less
