Gaines! The best technical theatre teacher in bakersfield!!!! So nice too! Can be rude if you get on his bad side though. But he cares about the well-being of all students. Even those not in his class or program!
He wasn't an easy teacher, but that's because he really wants you to learn. Al was a great teacher and a great friend. I was privleged to have had his class.
it was a must over the 3 years of having Al Gaines as a teacher, to get to know him very well. to this day, almost 2 years of being graduated, I still contact Gaines and he holds various get-togethers
-Must- get to know him. Overall cool guy who treats you as a -student- in class - NOT a friend. Treats you as you treat him.
Taught me more than any other single person, outside my parents. Like a mentor.
