What is French for "useless"? Who cares about learning another language, especially when languages are taught by bumbling old people like him? This is America, where everyone worth listening to speaks ENGLISH!

He does not teach anything. I forgot everything I learned before I had him, and so has everybody in my class. Also, he gives SO MUCH USELESS WORK. 11 pages of textbook homework in one night? Come on!

The best teacher I had at MHS. I can say I actually did learn French. Knows how to have a good time and keep class interesting, but he will get the material into your brain whether you realize he is doing it or not. Also isn't afraid of tangents, which is nice.

he shouldn't even be a teacher. he teaches you nothing and expects you to get a 5 on the AP exam. plays favorites a lot. if he had to be a teacher, he should teach anything but french.

Great teacher! greatrandom stories. hes insane in good way. he seems strict in the beginning of the year, but if you are a good student he will let you get away with notdoin the hw and talking in class, etc. if you normally do well, and you mess up some test questions,he will mark them right
