Mr. Rennert-May is one of the most passionate teachers I've ever had. He reads every book that we've gone over multiple times and is more than willing to meet with students outside of class to further analyze the deep themes. He is usually quite prompt when answering my emails. If you work even a little bit in his class he will recognize and appreciate the effort that you put in and exceed it. One of my best teachers in high school.
hands down my least favorite teacher at this school, and he almost didn't let me go on may project. he is so unqualified and i'm shocked he has this job.
A lot of people find Mr. Rennert-May to be awkward and to not teach anything. I felt this way at the beginning of the school year, but I have grown to really like him. Yes, he's quirky, but he has a passion for English and portrays it to his students. He is a tough grader, but the activities in class are not too difficult and discussions always run well. I did enjoy his class and hope to have him again as a teacher.
Rennert-May is a definitely a quirky man but also good teacher. He is by no means an easy A, but he keeps class discussions lively and is definitely very smart. He offers great insight into class texts and does a good job steering the class discussion. My only criticism of Mr. Rennert-May is that he is unclear when assigning papers and does not help students improve their writing. That said, if you put in effort and make sure to keep up with the readings you will succeed.
Rennert-May has been one of my favorite teachers at Lab. He is definitely enthusiastic about what he teaches, and knows a lot about English. Sure, he's strict, but if you pay attention in class and contribute to discussions, it's very easy to pull off an A. Rennert-May is one of the nicest people in the school. He rules!
He doesn't tell you what your grade is on anything, is very awkward, and is not very clear on what the assignment is.
It's hard to describe Mr. Rennert-May. Since he's now in his 4th year at Lab he's become much more accustomed to how it works and he's less awkward than his first and second year. He knows his material and he has some interesting insight once you get up to the English electives and he's actually allowed to teach what he likes. He may get over-excited at some topics that the normal High Schooler might find somewhat boring but all-in-all his electives are pretty good.
hes hilarious and funny but grade way to hard and has an unnering ability of making connections between the most unconnectionable things there are
