He is alright. Sometimes, his class makes me want to sleep, but sometimes he's funny. He gives a quiz every day about reading the textbook. I only had him for about a month, so I'll get used to his class soon.

He's really fun and tells funny jokes/stories. He also tends to cuss alot. Does not like it when you talk during his lesson or not copy notes. Gives a homework quiz everyday based on the reading. You can make a outline of the textbook chapter to help with the quiz the next day. You get extra points if you hand in the outline and its good. OKAY He's A FUN TEACHER AND ALLLLLLLLLL ( FYI I had him 9th grade global ) PAY ATTENTION!!! AND DO THE REVIEW TEST SHEETS Test and review are so similar!!!!!

I won't neccessarily call him "strict". He's actually a good teacher if u listen. He had a lot of jokes mostly funny nd rude at the same time. He shows a lot of movies and short videos which help u understand the topics better. He's a nice guy, don't give him smart talk tho. If you have him, you honestly have nothing to worry about :)

He is okay, but i think he teaches us as college students which he does at night. His tests are quizzes are hard if you don't read or study!

I have never laughed so hard in a class (next to Kerrigans). He makes the classes interesting by relating it to everyday life, instead of making it incredibly boring by stating fact after fact. Easy class, witty teacher, it's awesome.

Incompetent teacher, lessons are irrelevent to the global world history curriculum (Ex: AIM: What is Real?), tells us that conspiracy theories are without proof and he goes along making one, thinking he's an exception, shows no effort. Bad honor teacher

He should teach instead lecture about his daily life, he speaks nothing but gibberish, and breaks rules. He is extremely easy and off-topic, and goes off on tangents and I'd bet that a lot are going to fail the regents. He confuses me most of the time.

Bad teacher, criticizes textbook, refuses to teach anything in it. Teaches his own version of history, useless on Regents exam(based on texbook) Goes off topic, teaches about IRA classified by US Gov't as terrorist organization. Takes ages to return tests

Irresponsible teacher, all H3$H classes 2 chapters behind, unfair to people, tends to judge things by looking at them once and interpreting them in his own way. A bad pattern for honors teacher
