He is so funny and treats you like an equal. You will learn a lot in his class, but you will NEVER see your work after you turn it in. My only complaint is that you don't know your grade until the day before grades are due, which then leaves you no time to bring it up.

Uhhhh an interesting teacher. Still haven't gotten assignments back that we wrote about over a month ago. But he's a cool guy, not the best teacher though.

Some people say you don't learn anything in the class, but he's teaching you to take the initiative if you WANT to learn it. Quite possibly the best teacher at WHS

Gotta give props to the g-man. How can English be boring when you have star bucks? Sure nothing gets graded, but its al part of the suspense! Besides, life is like a box of chocolates, just be your self.

great teacher...hope you dont enjoy getting your papers back becuase you will never ever see your work again once you turn it into him, ive always wondered if the grades he gives are real but what can you do. hes a great guy and runs a fun class based on his merciless wims. oh and i discovered this year that i no longer have a writing folder(its supposed to stay with you thru out highschool) cause he thought is wasn't very important, or he just is too lazy to find them...

It's ok if things aren't turned in on time, he's still a very good teacher. When he relates things to modern culture, it helps us remember boring shakespear.
