He is a very eccentric teacher but I must admit that he is NOT what everyone says he is! He sings and sometimes exclaims in class, making us jump, but he is also very patient and understanding of his students. I had the wonderful opportunity of taking his Journalism class as well, and I think it truly validates what a wonderful teacher he is. Students take him for granted and call him annoying or too strict, but he is providing his students what he thinks will be good for them for college :)

He has OCD and wants everything to be perfect, well, nobody us perfect. He annoys you, makes you do things that you don't want to do, and makes classtime so much boring. I havent had his journalism class yet but I don't recommend him!

Mr. Li is a teacher who cares for his student's future & their choices, hence teaches Baby Steps-which students take for granted. He speaks thoroughly& tries to get his students get the main idea and say it. The essays were hard to get a B on & I was in his regular class. But i did manage to get a 102% with extra credits, A's on test, & homework. Please take advantages on extra credits. Honor class--I'm sorry but you guys don't have a chance. save yourself!

Mr. Li is such a great teacher. He is clear on his grading so you will know what you need to do to get an A in his class. Although his quizzes are difficult, his tests are fairly easy and you can work hard and get extra credit. He is a very fair teacher and doesn't only teach English but he teaches life skills. If you want an A in his class it is very possible if you work hard. Overall a very down to earth teacher and I definitely enjoyed class with him.

Mr. Li's class was very interesting. He's not an amazing teacher, but he's definitely weird which keeps his class interesting. His quizzes are extremely difficult, but his tests are pretty easy. He gives a lot of extra credit which will definitely boost your grade in the class. His in-class essay topics aren't that bad, but he gives students very little time to complete the essay. He has extremely high standards for an essay and most students get C's or D's.
Good luck.

Mr. Li is the homie for life. He's taught us that double-bubbling, triple-bubbling, and quadruple-bubbling is totally unnecessary. Don't listen to anyone who says Mr. Li is weird, because he only does it for us to remember his material. Remember to copy the brown because it will be an essential life skill later in life. His "Light Shows" are inspirational and he puts on the best music to inspire us. Also, he has the best dancing moves, ask him about them.

Although a lot of students dislike Mr. Li, I believe he is good teacher and has good intentions. Even though he can sound confusing and awkward, it's just his character. The fact that he is devoted into teaching is students is what's important. He may teach us study skills that are not related the English, but those study skills are what help you improve in that class and other classes when studying for tests and quizzes. The only thing annoying about him is his mumbling and repetitive words.

I agree with you. According to Mr Li's freedom forum rules we are supposed to build on the same idea which is how Mr Li is amazing. But the September 13th guy didn't follow Mr Li's rule. Therefore I believe he hates Mr li because he never followed his rules and was hated by mr. Li. Please like if you agree with my comment. I also want to thank mr. Li for teaching me freedom forum skills.

Although Mr. Li is OCD, a control freak, and prone to random yelling while reading text. He is definitely a good teacher. I can see why some kids don't like him, not great on first impressions. But he'll warm up to you. His quizzes are extremely hard if you don't know what to study, but he does tell us what to study. It's just most students don't pick up the clues. He is one of the most Bizarre teachers I have ever had, but also a person you can't sum up with a few words.

STUDY! This is a class you actually have to try in. It's easy to earn an A if you really, really try. Memorize for his quizzes. He goes over what'll be on quizzes/tests, but students let all that valuable information fly over their heads. If you think about it, Mr. Li is a hardworking and caring teacher. I admit, his class is stressing sometimes (ahem, essays). People complain, but all it takes to earn a good grade is some good ol' studying. Good luck students, and keep doing you, Mr. Li.

It is kind of hard to define Mr. Li. He seems greatly knowledgable, but he doesn't seem like he is teaching us all of his knowledge. He seems more strict about all the other stuff than the really most important stuff, but this is how you get an A in this class. Without all the useless stuff, you can never get an A because he is a strict essay grader and we take many quizzes which are extremely hard if you don't memorize everything. His multiple choice tests are easy. Good luck.

I dont why everyone is complaining. This man is really hilarious and knows how to engage the whole cla$s with comedy. Everyone has to play attention in his clas$ for fear of embarra$sment and he's a great teacher with great knowledge of English. He makes me laugh. You may think he's annoying but his cla$s is never boring and he knows how to lighten up the day!!!!

He teaches by giving a lot of worksheets and packets, and depends on us to read the them to understand his class. He also grades your homework, so you'll want to put your effort and put the correct answers. If you want a decent grade in his class, I highly suggest you do ALL of his homework. Miss one, then you can get a B or lower. His essays are also difficult because of the time limit, but his test are pretty easy as long as you study.

Have him for Accolade. Doesn't care about what you write; does Acco for his own self enjoyment and forces staff to stay behind because he's too lazy to work when he needs to. Too stubborn to listen.

Ever realize that the people giving good ratings are on the accolade? well i'm sorry, but if you're in his class you'll realize just how bad and how crappy of a teacher he is. He is waaay too stobern and i'm glad that i will never have to deal with him again. Seriously, ask anyone that has had him for an English teacher and they will tell you strait out that you never want to have him as a teacher.
