I graduated in 2008 and just identified a little known Shakespeare quote at work today!! If it wasn't for Mr.Illman's compelling class I know that would not have been possible!

Mr. Illman was the first teacher I had that truly inspired me. He taught me that books could be amazing and moving. He made me feel motivated to reach out to find things that moved me and challenged me. He is an amazing man and teacher. I am really thankful that I had him.

I had him for English way back in 1975-76, at the old Music and Art. I'm not surprised to see he's still teachingHe really loves what he does, and benefits from teaching at a specialized school. He was one of the best.

Mr. Illman's Rants of puns seem corney, but are actually wellthought-out and leave me in stitches aswell. Athough he enjoys the sound of his voice abit too much, he is one of my favorite teachers i have ever had. He makes sure yoou get EVERY detail making you understand all the material to the full!

He's not just cool, he's ILL, man. He made me really love Shakespeare's plays, or more specifically, Hamlet. Going overe it in class lets me understand it a lot better than just reading it at home. His jokes aren't great but he's such a funny old man. He really enjoys his work.
