Mr. Hiatt is an overall amazing teacher. He is helpful, his classes are incredibly easy to sit through, and he knows what he's talking about. He carries his classes with confidence, making a difficult topic understandable. You should never be afraid to ask any questions, he will happily explain the answer to whatever the question may be. He sees the full potential in students, and is lenient with his homework/class policies, but not *too* lenient. Quintessential example of the model teacher.

One of the smartest, most well-educated people I've ever met. also one of the most caring, calm, and chill teachers i've ever known. The only complaint I would have is that he is very very slow at grading

Mr. Hiatt is the most dedicated teacher at Beverly. He is fully invested in his students and truly wants to see them succeed. He assigns fair and interesting work and makes reading and writing fun (as opposed to a chore). He puts a large emphasis on written work and wants to see you improve your writing over the year. I was very fortunate to have Mr. Hiatt for both Freshman Honors and AP Language!

Mr. Hiatt is a really nice guy and not very strict. He's one of the smartest people you will ever meet which is why I don't know why he's just a teacher! His freshman honors English class is fairly easy, just read your book report books on time and always submit your homework. And participate!!! It's a pretty laid back class and really good to have earlier in the morning if you need to do homework for another class!

He's a terrible teacher. He teaches us nothing in his class. We do everything at home, and then "review" in class. In reality, his reviews just make the lesson that much harder. Also he is bad at time management. He's still grading stuff from he beginning of the year, and near the end of the year, we had to do a ton of Odyssey reading a day to finish the book in time for the final.

Mr. Hiatt is the G. I love this guy. He is chill. His AP English class is an easy B. You have to put good work in to get that A. Not going to be a stroll in the park. Great guy. He is the beh-roooooo.

Nice guy, fun class. Does get boring at times. Needs a better way to have class discussions-doesnt call on people that raise their hands for a while. Gives lots of points.

Not your average teacher. He's too kind and is always easy to talk to. His class is an easy-A if you actually study and do your homework. It's easy to take advantage of him, but try not to!

He is an awesome teacher. Everyone loves this guy. His class is easy and his lectures are easy to understand. He does not assign much homework. He really loves his job and goes out of his way to help students succeed. Quite flamboyant, but he is probably one of the best English teachers I've ever had.

I was in his ap lit class two years ago and you wouldn't find any teacher more understanding and nicer than him at BH. His class can be challenging at times but he always makes it fun and interesting. If you got Hiatt for English, then you're on the right track.

An amazing teacher that is also easy. I learned so much in his class and really enjoyed it. You are VERY lucky if you get him for AP because 90% of the class gets an A.

Hiatt is so funny and has great facial expressions/voices. He has great stories and random video clips. for ap lang/comp, he is very forgiving on the quality of your logs and ras as long as you did something. you will get really tired of rhetoric and essays unless you want the practice, but it is good for the ap.. vocab and grammar are really easy. he also gives out essay topics in advance so you can prepare.
