i love Mr. Blom! I had him freshman year and he is really good! He really helps you grow and encourages discussion and particiption. Its English though, so you can't except a miracle!
As for hw, its ok, its not too bad, most of it is just reading and/or writing a paragraph about a question he asked.
He is so sweet and nice, at the end of the year, he gave my whole clas friendship bracelet he bought for us <3 Show More Show Less
12/10/13 - He is not an understanding man at all. He has an extremely high ego and a passive aggressive personality. This teacher has been extremely rude to me even though I am an A average student. If a student is struggling he will kick him/her down instead of fostering their growth in his class. Not only is he obnoxious but his class is too. We waste more than 75% of his class discussing what the HW is. I have learned NOTHING from him and i cannot wait to get my AP credits and get out. Show More Show Less
05/27/12 - TOO MUCH HOMEWORK and never clear about what the assignment really is so we end up doing pointless work. also lazy grader and everthing gets "paid in full"therefore no one actually TRIES to do well with the homework. Show More Show Less
03/25/12 - Mr. Blom is probably one of my favorite teachers. He is very knowledgable and passionate about what he does and allows room for individual thought and person. He works with you if you learn differently than others or have a disability as I do. He does assign a pretty heavy workload, but other than that, he is a good teacher. Show More Show Less
03/25/12 - He's been a great teacher so far. Whether or not you hate the lesson or the book you're reading in his class, he has a way of making it a good experience. He's a really good teacher and he's almost always very fair. We do tend to get a decent amount of work, however. Show More Show Less
02/01/12 - I really dislike him not so much as a teacher, but just as a person. he's persnickety and compromises everything fun we do with restrictions. he also told us that when we write poetry its an exercise, not actual poetry. also tai chi. every morning Show More Show Less
