he is scary in the begining but so cool after a while .....he really prepares you for college
he is very set in his ways and will not listen to others opinions. Learn how he wants his essays written and keep doing that all year and you'll do fine.
From a parents perspective, he presents an excellent ciriculum but is difficult to communicate with & does not like to have his authority questioned.
Do what he tells you...I was in his class in 1995/96 and still use his advice. He is great practice for college. Try hard and be proud of your work
He is a hard teacher because he's very picky. Type everything in his class and don't be late or absent. He teaches good techinques in essay writing.
