He grows on you! You may hate his repetition at first, but you look back on it and there's something very comforting about his old fashion ways, and his bonuses as well. He has some good stories about his life. I miss him!

well, his class is very repetitive and he does give a lot of work, but once you get to know him, you will realize he is a very knowledgable person on everything on life and a warm teacher.I'm gonna miss him due to retirement!

His class is so repetitive. We only do Vocab and read stories from the textbook. We do nothing original. We do the most boring work, and worst of all we get a load of it.

He was a fine teacher. He enjoyed his subject and got us to think.

Very Unfair. I asked him if I could go to my locker to get the H.W and he said "No". Next week someone else asked him if they could get their homework, he said "sure". Ugggh.

he may be old fashioned, but he gives you food for thought. they don't make them like him anymore. he makes you use your brain. he's interesting.

He is a good teacher but everyone hates his group projects. They are so time consuming & not everyone does the same amount of work. Groups are too big.
