He is a great teacher. He is tough but loves to help you out.H had him twice my freshmen year and senior year. He loves to show tough love but when it comes to it he is a huge softy. He does get on a his soap box but in this class you get more than what you are there for. He shares his life experiences with you so you don't make the same mistakes in life. Does not push personal views at all. I wasnt sure how I would feel about having him as my teacher as he is family. all he wants is to pour out
pretty fun and cool but honestly not as great as he claims himself to be
Male chauvinist, even demeans own wife, all during class with students.
Nice, funny, caring person. Sometimes, he seems a little bit full of himself, sometimes he can be slightly offensive, and I often found myself a bit bored in his class...however, I did learn what I needed to about essay writing. Overall, good.
Anybody saying he "changed their lives" or "helped steer them in the right direction" is, in my humble opinion, misguided. Any students with any REAL issues he sent to the counselors. The dude is full of himself; he says he cares because it makes him look like a "better person." Extremely pious. Assigns busy work and never actually teaches- got a 4 on the AP exam without even having anything to do with it. Bogus.
Best teacher at SP. you are very lucky if you get him as a Freshman. If you are open minded you will learn a lot. he will teach you life lessons. one of the few teacher that actually cares about your future and will push you to do your best.
Best English teacher at SP. Taught me so much more than I even knew there was to know about English!
He's a good teacher but I could totally see that about The Golden Compass happening. Hardest essay grader for AP Lit, but in a good way I think. Also more work. He really will help you out if you need it, but he's kind of really eager to get involved in your life and it comes off as weird. Still, probably your best bet for Lit (and freshman English too).
I have Mr. Whitehead twice and I am glad I did. He is an awesome teacher and has a lot of very useful advice!! He can be really picky when it comes to essays though, but it help a ton.
He really knows his stuff if you want to learn something helpful you should deffently try to get mr. Whatehead as a freshman or and as a senior
My least favorite class ever. We learned nothing about Lit and he got off topic way to much.
he is the type of teacher that will change your life. you will always remember him. his class was awesome.
Mr. Whitehead is the kind of teacher that will definitly make an impact in your life and you will remember for years to come. I loved his class.
Mr. Whitehead is probably the most influential teacher at SP. His discussions are heart-felt and leave every student with a better understanding of themselves and their world.
If you didn't like Mr.Whitehead, it was because you decided you weren't open to how the world really is. He never pushed any view on anyone... He's an excellent teacher.
Mr Whitehead has to be one of the best teachers I have had. If you go to his class with an open mind and a willingness to learn, that is exactly what will happen.
In his class i learned how to think out side the box. we talked about life and sometimes religion came up but he never pushed any view on anyone
he sure does like to preach in class alot..lol..and likes to make remarks about students in front of class..
Mr.Whitehead teaches me soo much! I listen to him speak everyday and he not only teaches me book knowledge but life knowledge!
Awsome teacher. If anyone thinks hes crossing the lines its because they dont know the lines. Hes teaching us what is in the book and he teaches from his heart.
He does not preach religion, he just has deep conversations. I am an atheist and I think it's great. In my opinion he is the best teacher at SP.
Needs to learn when the difference between being in church and being at school.
he crosses the line between church & state, knows it, and loves to
Best H.S teacher I ever had. Made me believe in myself, now I'm a leader at SDSU
