Dr coriaty was by far the best teacher I have ever had and the best teacher probably at Los al. He taught me so much!!!! Yes he is strict but that's because he cares about his students education and just wants us to learn. I have never liked English as much as I do until I had his class and none of my English teachers can compare to him. The people that complain about him are probably the ones who slacked off or did not pay attention in class. If you work hard & pay attention you will do great.

Dr. Coriaty is one of the greatest teachers on campus. Where he is certainly harsh and a bit mean at times, any writing you will ever do after that will be like child's play. Nothing in an English class has been difficult for me since. The rumors about him are highly exaggerated and anyone who says he is a tyrant didn't stay in his class until the end. You will never write the same and you will never have trouble with writing either. All around a great teacher with a overly harsh reputation.

He is the absolute worse teacher that I have ever had; if you are not a democrat, good luck! He acts as if he knows everything when he really does not know what he is talking about. If he has a doctorate then why is he teaching 9th grade English?

He claims he never says an answer is bad but he told my friend "boy, I wish I had that 10 seconds of my life back." Not encouraging and rants if there isnt enough participation. Heres one thing I learned in his class: how not to act as a teacher.

Dr. Coriaty is an amazing man, and an amazing teacher. He is the only teacher on campus with a PhD, and he truly knows his stuff. YES he is a tough teacher, and YES he is sometimes very rude and arrogant, but after leaving his class and entering other english classes, i now understand how much he really taught me and how much better he is at english than all the other teachers. He can be a jerk, but i strongly recommend that you take his class. you'll learn alot about life and about english.

DR CORIATY WAS THE BEST ENGLISH TEACHER I HAVE EVER HAD!!!!!! Dr. Coriaty new his stuff! He teaches how to write better. Yes, it was a lot of work, but my writing improved tremendously. I requested him for Freshman year Honors English because no matter how much former students of his complained about the work, none of them could say he was a bad teacher. He graded essays hard, but other assignments helped me get a good grade. He has a doctorate! He gives students everything they need to su
