One of few teachers to truly impact my life and ignite my interests in reading and learning. Runs a deeply fulfilling and engaging class. Anybody who goes through strath Haven without having him is missing out. He really cares about challenging students and getting them to challenge themselves. Also very very well read.

Adams was one of the most awesome teachers I've had. If people didn't get caught up in personal differences, I think they'd be able to see that a lot of his views, including those that don't have to do with class material) are very sensible.

He's cleary very intelligent and I have learned A LOT in his class, which, is my favorite class! His seminar class is interesting and enjoyable. Even though he loves to hate anything that is popular and feels the need to be different...I still love his class and he's hilarious.

Mr.Adams imposing nature tests your conviction. Don't back down on what you believe. He's fun to argue with. His class can get a bit dull at times,so asks lots of questions in order to keep it lively

Able to speak at length about broad number of topics. Lives his work, although doesn't seem enthused to talk about it with chldren. Often mislabled as arrogant for challenging students to defend ideas

Adams is a smart man, but doesnt have what it takes to be anything more than a highschool teacher. He thinks he knows everything, but doesnt.In addition he is full of himself. Maybe he should DJing.

He is a huge fake intellectual but is unaware and unable to consider multiple sides of an issue. He thinks he understands everything but is actually void of real understanding.

Adams know the differences between history and History; he doesn't teach the standard "person x was born on date y and did BLANK" crud. He tries to teach the grand schemes. My one complaint is that, while he tries to be unbiased in his teaching
