I really think he is one of the most overrated English teachers in the whole high school. Everyone always talks about how amazing he is and how great his lessons are, but I never find them all that great. There are lots of other teachers for English who are more compassionate and who make more of an effort to get to know their students. I can't say I enjoyed his class nearly as much as my other English classes. I don't get all the hype.

Hartnett is such an amazing teacher and he has taught me so much! With all his quirky "days" (i.e. box day, 5 senses day, etc.) he makes class so fun and entertaining while exposing us to abstract concepts and other cultures. Would love/beg to have him again in AP Literature in senior year.

Mr. Hartnett is an awesome teacher. He not only teaches about the literature we read, he also gives really cool lessons that seem random, but yet still connected to the book/play assigned (toga day, nyc day, african music day). Mr. Hartnett is very fair and reasonable in grading and more often than not, gives students the benefit of the doubt in terms of grades. Future Hartnett students, don't be scared about really 100 pages a week for his class. It will come to help you in the future.

All you have to do is to read the books and you can ace the class, though in the other class he teaches in 10th grade College Prep Writing is very hard and usually you get a whole letter grade lower than in your regular class.
