Demands and deserves respect. I understand why people might have a problem with him, but if you listen to what he has to say and don't act snide about it, you will get along with him just fine. Sad to hear he is retiring.

I had his gym class last school year. He is very passionate about his "health and wellness" class, yes it's not called gym with him. He gets mad when you do something wrong. Overall, super awkward man...

Popular talk amongst many of the school's students. He is a very strict teacher (too strict even), but its a very easy class (after all, its decisions). However, he is knowledgeable and he gets his message across. He makes jokes that are only funny because he doesn't seem like the type of person to make jokes. He often has major mood swings.

Ultra-liberal, hypocritical, facist, bad-tempered, and unreasonable. So biased to his own views, he cannot bear to hear other people's opinions. My least favorite teacher I've probably ever had.

if you don't try to get attention in his class by acting out, he's nice to you, so why not just try? the class isn't that bad. and a lot of people could learn from his lessons on respect and values

This guy basically IS Decisions. He makes the class worthwhile. Don't get on his bad side, but don't get too far on his good side, either. I'm forever labeled "Bratty Kid" because I was such a good student (don't ask) and he doesn't quite understand how late he makes me for Art when he has conversations with me as I motor down Echo Hall.

decisions is useless without him. at the time he seems dry and almost embarassing. but in retrospect, he's a nice guy who tries to make a class that is essentially a joke into something legitimate, and you have to give him some credit there.

you gotta respect someone that tries that hard at something they do. honestly though i thought that the class was dry, and that teaching is not his correct occupation

I know a lot of people hate him, but I actually liked him. I think he teaches the class excellently, but I know other people disagree. To each his own, really. Either you love him or you hate him.

He was late every single day, once 35 minutes(!), and constantly leaves to talk to his basketball players. He's basically a coach who also teaches.
