Had him for both English and Philosophy. He's extremely knowledgable and passionate about what he teaches. Other people have said that he could easily be teaching as a professor at a college, and I agree completely. He truly cares about what he is sharing, and is happy to help if you ask for it. If you give at least a little effort, you will have no problem in the class. I personally took my classes because I was interested in the material, and I loved having Haupt as a teacher.

Dr. Haupt is a pretty eccentric guy, but he is very knowledgeable about what he does and demonstrates a lot of passion in his lessons. He is known for "Haupt eyes" and bizarre facial expressions, but this is actually part of what makes his class fun. If you show up and do your work, you will get a good grade in his class. He is very willing to help people out with their grades if they show they care about his class.

Dr. Haupt was my philosophy teacher. Although it can be a slow class (especially first period!) he managed to keep me interested in the subject matter because he is passionate about it himself. He is very understanding of our busy schedules as students and offers fair extensions. Not only was I able to learn a lot about philosophy in his class, but I had fun doing so.

Despite Mr. Haupt being very knowledgeable about the subject matter that he teaches, I find him to be extremely condescending and hard to work with. When working with him one on one to discuss your work for the class, he would often say that I was being unclear or that I needed to explain myself so that he would understand. I would try again and he would make it seem as if I was talking like an alien. I think his dedication to the subject matter is very admirable, but not his feedback skills.

One of the worst teachers I've ever had. He is rude, mean, sarcastic, and egotistical. He is one of the reasons I hate showing up to class. He doesn't take anyone seriously and acts like everyone is lower than him. He once made me stay after school, made me wait 1 hr just for him to finish reading his emails and then told me I had to capitalize something in An essay. He then proceeded to ignore me and when I asked him a question,he talked to me like I was stupid and was sarcastic the whole time.

"make sure they're quieted" haupt-- 2016
This man is always trying to roast, his big eyes will stare you down prior to his verbal confrontation. He needs to calm down, to cool it on the roast. After he cools it he could be an ok teacher, but in his current state his days as a middle school bully are clouding his judgement.

Im not going to lie, Mr. Haupt is a smart man but he is extremely condescending and he takes forever to grade. This is a bit random but if you ever pay attention, he never makes eye contact with anyone..he stares at the back of the room

Ok, this man needs to tame his ego. He is smart, but so condescending and egotistical! Unhelpful, boring, and has a tendency to go after specific students. Every semester he makes someone cry.

What wrong with wearing pink? DR. Haupt was cool. He doesn't make it easy to like him at first but if you pay attention and do your work, you shouldn't have a problem with him or his class. Smart man.

He doesn't lend himself to likability, but he knows what he's talking about as far as English goes. Be prepared to scrutinize and rework your writing; he doesn't inflate grades.

He cares deeply about his material, can teach decently, but insanity seems to be a prerequisite for a PhD (he once took off his belt and banged it on the floor)
