Where do I begin? Part of me wants to put him with the greats. Another part of me wants to roast him. Honestly, he came across as very goofy and passionate about his subject. However, he was completely oblivious to the behavior of the class and disorganized. Part of me thinks he was a very good teacher to begin with, but as age caught up with him, he became more of a joke than a teacher. I have a lot of memories of him, and I think he has changed students' lives, but he needs to retire, SOON.

Boring, unhelpful, and unintelligent. His street smarts are less than most middle schoolers, he doesn't connect with students, and he is not involved with the class.

Mr. Vance teaches with a powerful passion (and volume of voice) unlike any other teacher. He does not hesitate to use pop-culture to emphasize his lessons.
