Pretty OK teacher, however I must admit he was very strict and sent people outside a lot. However he got us into good habits(like putting our HW in our Agenda). He retired in 2014, so I was in his last year.

Oh Mr. Peters. To be honest, he is intimidating. Especially if you had just entered middle school. I currently am a rising 10th grader and although his class was hard, you do get a lot out of it. I still remember his lessons to this day. His jokes do get out of hand sometimes, but it's not like he tries to make it offensive or anything. Don't be on this bad side, study, turn in hw on time, and you'll do fine

He's a pretty strict teacher, but once you're out of class, you realize how much you've actually learned. You really have to work in that class, and there is no such thing as an 'easy A' with him, but in the end you will have learned so much. One of the best teachers I've ever had. P.S. It helps to be nice, and actually work hard!

You'll hear alot of rumors about mr. P but really he's not that bad.He is very scary but if your on your toes and don't do anything bad. HE makes jokes that sometimes offend people. REALLY if evers says something you just can't beleive it's a joke. (sometimes it's hard to tell) Overall it's a good class, he teaches well (i learned so much). DONT GET ON HIS BAD SIDE!!!

At the beginning of the year, he was pretty mean, but once you get to know him, he's really nice. He helps you with anything, explains stuff well, and knows all the answers. Go Mr. P!!

again, as most people said, he makes fun of kids openly in the class. also, not having your homework was a very big deal in his class, he was very harsh on kids who were behind. once you got a C or below, it was almost impossible to get back up again, and he doesn't believe certain kids can do any better than an average "C".

Mr. Peters often made fun of kids in front of the whole class which made us all uncomfterable. If you do your homework, participate, and pay attention, you should be fine.

he makes fun of certain kids if you don't behave in class. be on your best behavior, raise your hand alot to answer questions, and don't fool around! get on his good side, and you'll be fine, but otherwise.....

I had him before, and he would always make fun of certain students. I was kind of scared to go to class because he'd make such a big deal when i forgot my homework or something. But he's fine if you behave and bring in your work on time.

Well, I didn't like how he teased people, or rephrased what you said to make it seem like what you said was stupid. It's embarassing to be made fun of in class!

I had him a while back, didn't exactly get along, and he wasnt the best at reaching out to his students to be friends or show he cared.
