I had him for AP English at West Potomac. On the first day he pulled me out of class to ask who I had write my entrance essay for me, because he literally could not believe that I had been able to write it (despite the fact that you had to have A's in your previous English classes and also test into the class). I am Black. In a school of 3,000 students there were only two Black students in his AP English classes, including me, and that conversation showed me why. Glad he is no longer teaching.

The man has a very strict template by which he grades by, expect to copy down things word for word and to regurgitate his feeble and misguided literary analysis, with no alteration or originality. He

He rocks! His tests can be difficult if you don't do the reading or just Sparknotes it, but he really wants you to do well and is pretty chill about project and essay deadlines.

Doesn't cover material with enough depth, however the class' lack of challenge and mind-blowing insight is eclipsed by great enthusiasm and geniality to which all teachers, and people, should aspire.

I miss his class already (MHS06). Excellent teacher who gives his students more than enough opportunities to redeem themselves if they find themselves in the path of academic decline
