Had him for 9th & 10th. A great teacher that creates a bond with his students. Very Sarcastic and humorous. Great teacher. My only complaint wold be his daily DOLS since they are based more on memorization than actual knowledge. Also his vocab tests are a bit challenging being that he does not give definitions out. Overall great teacher.

He's an extremely easy teacher if you do the hw (vocab every week), but he will NOT prepare you for AP Eng from what it seems so far. You don't learn anything and he doesn't read your essays.

When I thought I wrote the best essay I've ever written, I got a bad score. The only thing that lowers your grades are book tests and finals. Didn't anything except for 5 words I could use in my vocab

We always wonder what he's eating... He'd be better at teaching History than English (just use a bunch of fancy words in your essay and he won't notice your typos/writing). Quite nice if not angered..

He's a nice guy but not a great teacher. He didn't even read the essays we wrote. During a whole year of "honors" english, I didn't learn anything. Its a free A if you do the homework.

Very nice and easy going but not so great of a teacher. His habit of eating in class in very distracting and "honors" english class is very easy

Dry jokes. I don't think he even reads the essays we turn in. His honors class won't prepare you for AP. Although, his SAT vocab words are helpful. I suggest you to self study.

I had Mr. Leadbetter two years ago. He is a kind teacher, and it is an easy class ( if you listen and do your homework ). He is sort of the grandpa figure, to his students, but overall, his class is superb! One thing that bugged me was that he always had his air conditioner on! Even in winter!
