The worst English teacher I ever had. He did not teach us anything. He would show up to class 15 minutes late. All he had us do is watch movies. Would teach us nothing and then give us super hard quizzes that everyone would fail. Do not think he ever entered in grades for quizzes because everyone did so bad. One time he claimed that he lost our quiz scores.. Would always end up dropping quizzes. Did not care if we learned anything.

you may struggle in his class, you may want to cry when you get your test back, you may want to disappear into nothingness when he calls you out on your nonsense in the middle of class. but despite this, i learned things from Mr. McKenna that will probably stay with me forever. don't shut out his wisdom, because if you listen to it, you'll leave the class with a different perspective - a better one. (and also a sense of humor). EVERYTHING IS CONNECTED

Mr. McKenna is a great man. He will always tell jokes, and class is always interesting. The way he gives grades is admirable because he will observe the way you perform on homework, tests, etc and will give you the grade you truly deserve.He is great

Probably one of my favorite teachers. You learn a lot, even though there is not much work. Go into his class looking for humor. You'll find it. Don't take anything he says seriously.

Sometimes joking is good but not always. Playing favorites is very unprofessional.
