Mr mott is an amazing teacher with a great sense of humor. I always enjoy his class. I'm waiting for the day he retires from teaching and has a sitcom with Mr. Hill

His teaching may seem unconventional to those who are used to the usual rote memorization/note taking kind of class. But he's a pretty AWESOME guy. Having him as a teacher was one of the greatest advantages ever. He's also got a killer sense of humor, and isn't afraid to call anyone out.

Not only is Mr. Mott a teacher in the sense that he helps you pass the next test, he also teaches you critical thinking skills that you'll need for life. He's a very knowledgeable person, and sometimes it feels like he has books memorized, but he also goes off on a tangent too often, making the pace in class stutter at times. I would recommend Mr. Mott as a teacher, his erratic personality, and style of teaching is a breath of fresh air to invigorate an otherwise monotonous day at Stuyvesant.

Mr.Mott is an amazing person who definitely cares about his students and subject material. He empowers/trusts the students to run the room. Not because of laziness, it's because he want us to learn invaluable lessons along the way. Definitely a teacher that has shaped me in many ways. Make sure to raise your hand and be open/honest. He'll see that and reward it. I did a decent amount of work and walked away with a really high grade and college recommendation. Get his as a teacher!

I love Mr. Mott! He might not teach you a lot about English but he teaches about literature and life! He's just keepin' it real most of the time. He is lazy with the student-run classroom but this class is worth it. This class taught me a lot of things I need to know about life. Sometimes it's not just about being book smart. Not to mention he's incredibly funny and it's a high easy grade too :) just be witty and willing to express yourself in a likable way.

Mr. Mott is an unorthodox teacher who tells it how it is. In his class, you'll learn lessons about life and literature. However, he won't give you these lessons; you must learn them yourself from him.

Horrible, horrible teacher. I've put up with bad teachers but I've never met one who refuses to do ANY work and takes the liberty to do whatever he wants. His grading is extremely risky as well.

He's so chill. Unless you never do your homework or fail all the quizes, I don't think he cares about them. Its all participation. I love his tangents and random twitches. Minutes with complementary snacks isn't bad either.
