Baird really brings a new perspective into his class. Our English class became an interesting philosophy class senior year. He is strongly opinionated, but eager to learn from every new generation. He gives you the respect you give him, and will openly say that he liked the older, tougher teaching methods. His class should be a requirement for all students, if not simply to get a wake up call from the everything-is-for-college mindset that students fall victim to. He's an amazing teacher.

Baird has no interest in attempting motivate his students or build their confidence. Instead, he insults in front of the class. A disinterested penis... A bully

I love Mr.Baird. He is a great teacher that always tries to help you out with his assignments. If you don't understamd the directions, he will gladly explain them to you. He only gets upset if you act up when he isn't there that day. He is the best English teacher I had at AHS! MR.BAIRD ROCKS!!

I'm really not a fan of Mr. Baird. He's a pretty reasonable guy, but I did not care for his lessons. He doesn't really welcome discussion of his views and expects everyone to agree with him. His lectures are very boring (bring a pillow!) and I had a lot of trouble connecting with his lessons. In English 12, he understood the life of a Senior and did not assign much work. I think I wrote 3 essays all year. The challenge of the class is not the assignments, but making it through each class.
