fairly easy class but doesn't really help your writing. always very enthusiastic which isn't always good. for example whenever a student talks he responds with "FANTASTIC" or something of the sort which doesn't always help a students learn more.

He really talked a lot and was(SO LOUD!!) very passionate about what he does. He could always make you laugh but when you were messing up he would let you know.
I wish he would be more interactive with the students though. If you dont know something he wont answer the question but make you figure it by yourself when he was meant to support you. Has a bad taste in Music and was aways playing it at random times.

He is my all time favorite teacher. Talked to him a lot about baseball, knows a lot about music, theater, etc. You will undoubtedly share a common interest!

He talks about baseball nonstop, almost never gives written feedback on essays, spends lots of class time on silent reading, and teaches us concepts I knew years ago. He says I'm a brilliant writer, but he's just incapable of teaching anyone to write, so he loves it when a student already can. However, he's a really approachable teacher, so most students feel comfortable asking about their grades, field trip signatures, good books, etc. He also helps struggling kids stay on track.

Great teacher, great class. Ask for help if you need it. Never say that you don't like baseball. Challenging but always interesting.
