A great and nice person. Definitely humorous and I still can't forget his "Ahhhh..." whenever he tries something funny. Deals with people very well, and he makes the class atmosphere very chilled even for an honors class. However, he does a poor job in preparing students for APUSH because APUSH @ Demarest is brutal while US I Honors is a joke. But again, definitely a person you should meet and can enjoy with.

Such a great guy. The guy throws puns everywhere left and right and they are great. My favorite teacher so far. One of the few teachers you could talk to outside the class room and still be respected. He always says he is here for the students and that's his job, and he's literally a train.

one of the nicest teachers that i have ever had, will try to go out of his way to make the class interesting, only negative is there is an element of favoritism in his class and his tests can be almost impossible but besides that he is phenomenal

He is one of the best classes you will have all day. He is funny and gives out many nicknames and its an easygoing class but he won't prepare you for pugs and its the easiest thing to get an A or a B

Okay teacher. He is funny, and his class is fun. It's hard if you don't read the textbook, but that is all his class is. If you can read it and memorize it, youll do fine.He doesn't prepare u for pugs
