The most amazing and influential teacher in the school. He's taught me so much and definitely more about life than APUSH. I had him for APUSH and social psych and it was great. His APUSH class is a lot of work but so worth it, you learn an incredible amount, more than you'll ever learn with all the other teachers combined. You may be discouraged by the bad grades at first but it will only prepare you for college. Don't worry, his lowest grade for APUSH is like 85 and that's if you don't even try

I Have him for APUSH and he is not easy! But he is great teacher... we walk out of his class everyday knowing our US History. But he not only teaches us US History, most importantly, he teaches us about life. You will work hard in his class, unless you're in one of his sociopsych classes or global classes. He pushes APUSH tykes really hard because he wants us to be prepared and succeed in life.

He's one of those teachers you either hate or adore. Either way, you'll learn a lot. It'll definitely prepare you for college & you wont regret the class. But be prepared to work hard (it might even be harder than some of your college courses!). Good luck
