Kenny is a drill sergeant. He has a very narrow definition of expository writing that he beats into his students. Inarticulate sophomores can benefit substantially from this approach, but more advanced students suffer. In my case, more than 15 years and 14 publications after Kenny's class, I've realized on more than one occasion that his approach has impeded the development of my expository writing. And his attitude is simply unprofessional.

i had AP english with mr kenny three years ago. hands down i've learned more from this man on how to write than from any teacher/tutor/professor i've ever had--including my half brain expos prof freshman year at rutgers. to this day, every paper that i write i think about things he's taught me.

One of the best teachers I've ever had, definitely the best english in our district. He will lower your self esteem a lot, but it's pretty funny to watch him do the same to other people. Extremely good sense of humor, and can make fun of himself too. AP Eng will be tough, but all that work will be worth it in the long run.

Mr. Kenny is a gentlemen (notice the use of iron he taught me). In all honesty, he'll teach you how to write.

Don't expect to get a good grade in AP English. You're there to learn how to write better. He totally demolishes your self-esteem and even tries to correct the way you talk (saying "YES" instead of "YEAH") and grills you in front of the whole class. However, his main goal is to turn his students into great writers.

In 1980-something, Mr. Kenny taught me how to maintain the high standards I hold for my students today. Unfortunately, he did so in a derisive manner.
