One of the kindest most available teachers I ever had. To those that had a thirst for learning, he was the Hoover Dam. Mr. Bender a good man.
Wow, he is still teaching? I had hi for 8th grade English back in 1973. I loved his class and he always made us laugh. I loved his "Benderism" board and his nicknames. I try to teach with humor also.
He used to torment the kindergartners at Selzer back in the day. Many of his stories were inappropriate. I don't recall learning anything. But he did get me into Tangerine Dream!
He wasnt that bad but sitting through those grammar lessons felt like it would never end! I also think he had alzheimers or sumtin..he would repeat stories!!
LOVED HIM-miss him so much now that i have mcdonough. he made english SO much fun...although he had his bad days, i still liked him. HE WAS SO FUNNY!
:o[ i miss him... i bit boring at times, but he really had a passion for teaching and english, it was refreshing you could see he really cared, he had energy
yea ok so his class is boring and he repeats things but he has funny moments...what is english 1 going to be without him? Mr. B: yeah! (flag waving noise) lol
WORST TEACHER EVER!!!! NEVER DOES WHAT HE SAYS HE IS GONNA DO! REPEATS THINGS 1000 Times he is just really the worst teacher ever. Thank god for retirement!!!
