He was great! He taught very well while making the class as engaging as possible although the material was VERY boring. He would throw things around and make jokes which made the class much better than it should have been.

He was really quirky and funny, but he never smiled, but I guess that added more quirkiness. He was really easygoing too. Best english teacher ever.

Well, this year I have Ms. Waldstein and compared to her, Mr. Halpin was much better and less strict than her.

I think he is a great teacher, but his classes feel long sometimes and the mystery unit is hard if you don't get it. The tests though are REALLY easy and you get to diy sometimes with docs.

I think the lukewarm "he's okay" ratings might stem from the fact that Mr. Halpin has a very dry sense of humor, which some kids get and some don't. Heck, some adults don't get it, but my daughter did

Just because a teacher is easy does not make him a good teacher. I learned absolutely nothing in his class. He'd be better off teaching 4th or 5th graders.
