He is very knowledgeable about English. He will get into discussions with you about racism and opinions. He is not strict per say but you must respect him. He may get carried away with one thing, talks very fast, and is physically unable to write neatly. He does however enjoy English and is very respectable towards students, He can also be a bit behind on grades. He is a good teacher for those who learn at a fast space. He does not assign as many projects as other classes and focuses on writing

He is very frustrating. Not very good at controlling the kids. Focuses on grammar way too much and is very fast when teaching it. Very unorganized and handwriting is horrible. Stereotypes kids. Did not have a good year with him.

mr greiner knows a lot about english but does not do a great job of explaining things. if you participate in class you will find things easier to understand, but if you sit there and text people you

As long as you try, he's a really good teacher. Stay after, and pay attention. He has his flaws, but for the most part he's really understanding and forgiving as long as you make an effort.
