I feel like he hates his job. Or even his life. He's not personable at all, and really difficult to talk to. People talk about how he picks favorites, but to me it seems more like he chooses kids to pick on. Being an athlete myself, he always expects me to get under a 6:15 mile. Even on game days. To me, it seems like he really just doesn't care about anything and just tries to get his kicks out of harassing students.

rudest man ive ever encountered and is completely blinded by his short view. even if he interviewed Karch Kiraly on how to be a good coach, he would still be an ignorant buffoon.

Acted like he hates his job. Never shows up on time and he doesn't care. Never liked the athletic kids who didn't try. Definitely had favorites. Avoid having him as a teacher if possible.

He is okay. He picks favorites and is not very personable. He just kind of acts like he doesn't care.
