He was the worst teacher ever. He did not care about what he taught and all he cared about was being a "cool" teacher. There were two girls in my class that sat behind me and were constantly annoying and harassing me in home room, and being the rational and mature 6th grader that I was, I went up to him to see what he can do about the situation. He just said, "That's your responsibility," and went back to reading. 10 years later and I still remember it to this day. Glad he retired.

He was the best teacher I ever knew. The best memories I had were in his muirtime class near the PE lockers. But he's retired now, which really sucks. He was the best teacher I ever knew in my life.

He teaches very well, except he reads from the book WAY to fast and I can't understand ANYTHING he says. He also laughs at his own jokes that aren't even funny.
