Mr. Head is one of the best English teachers I've had. Students learn a lot everyday. He is notorious for being a hard teacher, but he really cares about students. Much of the readings are done outside of class, and assessments are quite difficult. However, this is expected for a high level English class. It is possible to get an A in this class, but expect to put in a lot of work outside of class. Mr. Head expects a lot out of his students, and he puts considerable thought into his lectures.

You know when your parents say "a good teacher is a hard teacher"? When I was in this guy's class he was a very critical grader and very thorough with his lectures. He also expected his students to be the same way. With the weight of junior year, I didn't want to add more with a BS class like English. Mr. Head made me appreciate literature and the whole idea of learning in general. His class was a great experience.

I hated English pretty much since middle school until I had this guy. He is truly one of the best teachers I have had and you actually learn a lot. I improved my writing a lot and the class was very hard, but still fun at the same time. You have to keep up with your work and make sure you are on top of things, but as long as you read the books and pay attention in class, it will help you a lot to improve your english skills.

Definitely the best teacher I had at Chapel Hill. Class isn't easy but you will learn a great amount if you put forth some effort. Mr. Head is a very engaged and dedicated teacher who wants to see all of his students learn and do well. Respect that and you will benefit from his class.

I had Mr. Head for AP Lit, and taking his class was one of the best moves I made in high school. Yes, his class is very difficult and you have to work hard to even maintain a B, but you'll come out a much better reader, writer, and student.

Mr. Head is a great teacher. He's definitely the best English teacher I've ever had, and perhaps the best teacher I've ever had over all. He's very strict but at the same time he's really funny and nice if you follow directions and try your best. He's obviously very passionate and dedicated and I think that's extremely important.

Grades papers like bibles/torahs/masters theses. His tests are somewhat ridiculous, and the work he gives seems pointless and tedious. The point is, study hard and study well. Good, but ridiculous.

Best English teacher at CHHS. Hard but fair grading. Awesome class. His sense of humor is ridiculous. And yes, you do have to read the books, but you'll actually learn.

Best teacher i've had at chapel hill, Funny, enguaging, Takes time to make sure the students know what they are doing. Very hard, but its an honors course so its to be expected. He treats the class fairly and like adults, Rather than little kids. If you get him as a teacher, you will do VERY well if you try and have fun at the same time.

Half of our exam was a timeline of Nigerian history. When I had him, we didn't learn literature, we learned history that was all but irrelevant to the books.
