great guy! hilarious and very ADD. had him for 3 years in a row. make him think your smart at the beginning and do all your work, and he'll love you for the rest of the years and you can just chill. i didn't learn much through all the years but i had a great time and got easy A's.
great person, not so good with teaching though, he gives alot of work, but its never checked, and he always goes over it in class, one thing to expect, youll never get any assessments back from him
Has gotten a lot stricter lately, but is very good at teaching Latin. Tends to bluster when confronted and often says things that aren't true (but not about Latin). Work hard and you'll be rewarded.
mr banta is always entertaining, but he can definately get down to business when its needed, tests can get difficult especially mid-terms
i don't really like him too much, but he teaches pretty well
I had him for three years, he's really a great teacher, and an awesome guy. There were roomers that he never graded anything and just gave grades based on what he thought of u, but i think thats bs.
awesome guy, easiest teacher ever. slacker class for sure. an easy A. be careful if you go into miss lupes clas the yr after, it can be a nasty shock cuz you actually have to learn latin.
Mr. Banta concocts the perfect blend of education and entertainment in his classroom. He relates well to each type of student, and inspires his pupils on various levels.
The sole reason I haven't dropped out... Kudos to one of the greatest men alive
Mr. Banta is really nice and really cares about his subject. Italy trip 2005 was awesome, he rocks!
coolest guy i ever met. also, biggest joke of a class i ever took. take it if you dont want to do any work at all. also, coolest guy ever. go on a trip w/him
A bit hard to get a hold of, but you really don't need to, he doesn't grade tests or homework other than his latin ones...Great teacher, do anything to get him.
