A lot of students don't like him but I personally think he is an okay guy. He is definetly a knowledgeable teacher. He lectures a lot and it's easy to learn from. He does give out a lot of work and the blogs can be a pain to work with but his class is not as bad as others say. He has a sarcastic personality and can be funny at times. He does make fun of students but it's humorous, not intended to emotionally hurt people. I think a lot of Foran students are really sensitive and should lighten up.

Awful. This teacher shouldn't have been hired to work at this school. His derogatory statements towards the students make the whole learning experience a lot more difficult.

He doesn't explain any projects he gives well and uses a badly formatted blog to give out most assignments. He makes fun of students, most of whom hate him. He expects way too much from our class and doesn't help students very much. He also contradicts himself often, leading to confusion

One of the worst English teachers I have ever had. He's in love with some edublogs for some dumb reason and thinks he knows all. He often blames his students for everything he does wrong.

He is very inappropriate in class, makes fun of students, is not clear on what he expects from assignments, and just keeps yelling the same things in class.

Constantly rude, passive-aggressive, and insulting. Always ducks responsibility and blames students. Picks favorites, and uses hypocritical arguments. my least favorite class.

He clearly chooses favorites in each class. If he picks you, you'll do fine and it'll be a lot of fun, but if you're not, you're going to have to work very hard to keep up. Basically, speak up in class and do your work, and you'll be fine. Also, he really is long-winded. Don't believe him when he says otherwise (constantly). You WILL have to interrupt him if you want to say your piece or get on with the lesson. Also, try not to take his humor to heart. He doesn't realize that he's being rude,
