He is a teacher who likes to joke around, but expects a lot from his students and will always help if needed.
Ray Martin is a great teacher. He is a great human being and is very knowledgable of various genres of literature. 10/10
Students love him. Hilarious guy, great at teaching. He is very smart and knows his stuff. He puts his AP classes as a huge priority and it sometimes weighs down his other classes, but he does his best and its admirable. Does assign a lot of homework
He's a great teacher. If you work hard, and do everything you are supposed to do.. he will have mass respect for you. He's hilarious, and can joke around. He's a genuine guy, and if you seriously need
The best teacher I've ever had. Took on teaching 7 classes this year for the benefit of the students, he wasn't even required to do that. Funny, a good teacher, and totally willing to help you.
He can really help you with college decision. He also really knows his literature -- ask him anything and he'll either know or look up the answer. Doesn't like to be insulted; can get pretty arrogant.
Mr. Martin is a sincere and insightful teacher. He has spent countless hours helping me improve my college essays and challenging the opinions of the masses. He REALLY cares. Awesome teacher!!
He is very tough, but the BEST teacher I have ever had by far. If you are willing to put a little extra effort in to every assignment then you will be fine. He is also very down to earth.
I think Ray is an okay teacher but kind of full of himself. His teaching style is boring, but he's learning better. He's kind of immature sometimes too, I've seen him target students.
Decent amount of homework... Very good with teaching and excellent at explaining. He is very nice and isn't strict. Overall he is pretty good.
Great teacher, he really wants his students to reach their maximum potential
Has mood swings, but he's a cool guy and I've learned more from him than from any other teacher...despite his claim that none of us are goin to college...
Had Mr. Martin for AP English Lit. He gives quite a bit of homework, but he is by far the best English teacher I ever had at Lake Mary. If you are working hard, he does his best to help you make the A
Mr. Martin is a great teacher that helps even the brightest English student sharpen their skills. He may gossip a lot, but he really cares. It is also extremely interesting - he helps bring a personal aspect to a too often robotically taught subject
Mr. Martin is one of the few teachers that truly gets to know his students and takes the time to write AWESOME college recommendations. Make sure you get him for AP Lit.
He is an intense person, but if you work hard you will see results. Read the seminar books. He is moody and talks a lot of gossip about people (naming names). He will help you and treat you kindly if you show initiative. He is alright.
Mr. Martin was the best teacher I have ever had. He knows everything and he is a great guy. He helped me develop terrific writing skills that are helping me this year. Mr. Martin was not only a teacher but a friend!
Mr. Martin knows where it's at. He's also really fun in his AP classes (And if you take him and are willing to do the work you pass the AP exam). I'm in college now and my english class is a breeze.
Excellent English teacher. It is very important to show EFFORT in his class, even if you are not always sure that you are right, you grade will benefit!
In retrospect, very good teacher. He does care, even if he comes off offensive. I wish I could've appreciated him during my freshman year, like I do now. Him and Bunnye are great AP teachers.
He is so funny and loves to joke around about high school in general. He also gossips about who people are dating. I liked him allot and learned more than I even realized at the time. 10th grade gifted seems like a cake walk afterwards.
ANTI-PERSPIRANT!! is needed! hes way too hard and expects too much..i guess hes pretty cool but he is in love w/ english way 2 much
what can I say, he knows his stuff. but he is very difficult.
BEST TEACHER I HAVE HAD A LAKE MARY REALLY REALLY CARES ABOUT HIS STUDENTS AND HIS JOB.
I used to hate him. We had this rivalry thing going on. But now I miss him, and he KNEW his material. I'm looking forward to senior year and having him teach again. (My new English teacher...ugh.)
He's really funny, but he's pretty hard. overall great teacher so far
He's a cool guy. although he tries too hard to get along with HS students. taught me a lot, and he definitely helped me learn literature.
THIS IS A VERY GOOD ENGLISH TEACHER HE IS HARD BUT WILL TEACH YOU IN A WAY I CAN NOT EXPLAIN.
Make sure you do your homework and do good on vocab tests. Those two will keep you a B average if you can pass the rest with about 60's :D
Mr. M is the teacher who made me like english, he taught me a ton! He may be hard and he knows it, but hes a funny guy and great teacher. Bro had M too &agrees.
he tries. he was very helpfull when you stayed after when ever you needed it - - but make sure all your priorities are on HIS class
hes a grea tperson. he helped me through tough times and was sincerely there to help. i did fail, but it wasnt because of him.i just couldnt take school anymore
Mr. Martin is a great teacher. If you don't think so then you are either A:a moron or B:you like Ms. Scherer. His class may not be easy but atleast I'm learning
Mr. M is really devoted to helping his students with both personal and academic goals. Students who found fault with his teaching style are ignorant anyway.
Mr. Martin is wonderfully tolerant of students faults, if you forget papers and don't normally, or it's a fluke accident, he won't take points off.
Mr. Martin is the best! People make fun of authenticity, but it really helped me learn. Mr. Martin is a wonderfly dedicated teacher who seems truly dedicated.
really sincere and takes time out to help students no matter what it's for.
Really tries hard and cares about students. All around good guy. I wish he'd stay for another year.
excellent delivery, fair grader, and respects student dedication
