Mr. Parlin is the most dedicated, inspiring, admirable, and helpful teacher I have EVER had. He is so much fun, gives a decent amount of work, and is the fastest grader I have ever met. I loved having him so so much and I'm really going to miss being in his class. He obviously loves what he does, and he teaches an absolutely fabulous class. I can't say enough fabulous stuff about him. If you ever have him, consider yourself insanely lucky! There aren't many teachers like him. ILY MR. PARLIN!!!

Mr.Parlin is simply the best teacher I have ever had. And, in Newton, that's really saying something. If you have him, you will do quite a bit of work, and he is a strict grader, but it all pay of 100 times, as i now have a newfound love of history and of the world. explains concepts clearly and at the students' level, grades work THOROUGHLY in ONE DAY(!!!), and has an excellent sense of humor. he is extreamly friendly and helpful, understands students' needs, and takes pride in his job.

Mr. Parlin is a FANTASTIC history teacher! He is probably one of my favorite teachers ever and has really made me enjoyed history MUCH more. He's interesting, smart, cool, nice, helpful, clear, and pretty much anything else you could want in a good teacher.

He's tough but easily my favorite teacher. He knows how to hold everyone's attention and teaches a ton without making anything seem boring. His class is fun since he knows a lot and is willing to go a little off topic on a current event tangent, which my favorite and most informative part of class
