I wish all of my English teachers were like him! Unlike some other English teachers, he is a fair grader (his standards will get higher throughout the year) and actually prepares you for the upcoming years.

Really fun teacher. If he likes you he will let do whatever. A hard class but he is a really good teacher. I learned a ton from him. His jokes are all about the books we've been reading.
