He is the best English teacher EVER! He walks you through every book, and prepares you for whatever project comes after it—usually a paper, but not a long or difficult one. Then he always has the perfect movie to show. Sometimes shows funny clips, including Monty Python stuff, and a scene from Young Frankenstein. Really laid back teacher, tells great stories, and grades pretty easily. You should
