MR. Farnham was strict, knowledgeable, and a genuine teacher/life coach. My fondest memories were his class, Mr. Rutherford, and Mr. Kerrick's class from my high school days. And yes, I knew who stole one of the test papers. :-). I hope he knows that there were students in his class, one being my wife, that still have high regards to his enthusiasm for economics and history.

He's a really nice teacher when you get on his good side. Although his class does get a little boring, it's pretty fun listening to him talk about stuff that is happening in our society.

Mr. Farnham is a really cool teacher. He is very clear to everyone else..... Except me that is..... I failed his class, but that doesnt make him a bad teacher.

He's strict and short-tempered. He never reads out of the book, he just lectures. But if u follow the rules and use 8 1/2 x 11 paper, you'll be okay!

all he ever does is lecture and it's not even about stuff in the book; it's just whatever he feels like talking about! you learn everything by reading the book!
