Mr. Dunlap was enlightening, but not as much Michael "Memes" Nisenzon with his economic theories

I'll preface this by saying that Mr. Dunlap is one of my favourite teachers. However, he shows a lot of favouritism to students, which I personally benefited a lot from. He's a really fun teacher who facilitates class discussion and interaction, and we get a lot of food in his class too.

He plays favorites a lot and seems a little sexist, but he's really insightful and helpful when it comes to writing essays. Plus, you get a ton of food in his class...

He doesn't give any tests, only easy and short vocabulary quizzes that don't even go in your grade.

Paul Dunlap is the reason I decided to start caring about my education: he cares about his students and and brings genuine passion to the classroom. Take his class is your are open to being inspired and want to be prepared for college. Do not take his class if you're looking for a free pass.
