Mr.Brotman is one of few teachers at Towson High that care about students and their future after his class. Some may as he picks favorites only because he dedicates himself to those who take his class seriously and want to learn. At times he does go off topic and tell a story from his past but he does it to teach his students about life lessons that stuck with him that he feels are important to share in order to improve our outlook on life.

Mr. Brotman's class is barely a class you come to school to learn and do work, in his class you do neither. He spends the class making fun of students for being teenagers and refuses to teach anything other than his life story. Nobody complains because he is wasting class time which they enjoy but in the end we don't learn like we come to school to in his class. As an English teacher he is awful he refuses to follow the curriculum and we don't read any books and are behind other classes.

Plays favorites extremely, if he doesn't like you it sticks with you and he judges before he even gets to hear you talk. He gives assignments and rushes them in at the end of the quarter and unless he likes you he makes it very difficult for you to see you outside.

Awful. No clarity or explaination. Very critical without any suggestion for improvement. Funny guy, terrible teacher. Lacks respect for his students. Learned very little in his classes.

This man is the poster child for ADHD. He lacks focus. His expectations are inconsistent. His instructions are poor if he gives them at all. Doesn't teach J-1; lets seniors do it. Plays favorites.

I have him for journalism so I dont see much of the guy's teaching because most of the class is spent at the computers, socializing. But, he is funny, energetic, and if someone needs help, he gives it

the dude loves Rush. like seriously. bring up Rush and he will go on and on about how today's music is nowhere near as good in comparison to them. this will take up the majority of the class period.

Brotman. He has very high expectations, which are impossible to fill b/c he never gives clear instructions. He's loud, and really entertaining, but I didn't learn one thing in that class.

He's pretty weird, but his class is my favorite because he is really funny. He is very easily distracted, so if you don't want to do anything all class bring up rugby.

Funny, laid-back guy. Often goes on mindless off-topic rants before he sends us to work on Journalism stuff. If he is on your schedule, feel blessed.
