FUN CLASS! The discussions, journal entries, etc., are really interesting and exciting. Not much writing in his class.
Had him for Eng. 1 H, absolute pleasure of a class. Discussions were great, actually fun, and textbook use and actual reading was limited. Great sense of humor. Beware though, his 3 question quizzes are fair, but you'll only get them right if you simply read.
Grand master Roubian teaches his apprentices well. He cares about his padawans and prepares them for success. His course is amazing, but beware of his special move - "please take out a half sheet of paper!"
Roubian is a great teacher who actually cares about his students. His tests were all pretty hard in my opinion, but as long as you read every night and do well on the quizzes you'll get an A in his class
Doesn't really teach English at a high school level, just expects us to read the book and memorize every single detail of it. However, he does like to initiate interesting class-led discussions, so this class is pretty informative. Quizzes are hard. Do your best!
Awesome guy. Had a great year with him. All I can really say is that if you love English, you'll love Mr. Roubian! Pay attention to the reading material and you'll be fine.
He is a fantastic teacher. I struggled at the beginning of the year but after a little difficulty I got the hang of his class. The biggest thing to watch out far is his quizzes. Usually 3 questions, they are sure to rock your world the first time he gives them. For the big 5 question ones, he tells you in advance, but the 3 question ones are at random. READ AND STUDY THE ASSIGNED READING MATERIAL EVERY NIGHT. The only time I didn't I got a 0. He does extra credit competitions and many quotes. GL
Mr. Roubian will expect you to carefully read all required readings for the day, as he will pull out pop quizzes on random days with questions that are super detailed (the ones people don't usually pay attention to). The daily agenda is basically, Pop Quiz, Grading Quiz, Silent Reading, and then Journal. You don't learn much grammar as his class is more on personal ethic and personal improvement which is interesting because other teachers don't usually talk about personal life. Good luck y'all
English 3 he is pretty chill. He will always be there to help, if he likes your work ethic and effort he will say so. Probably one of the best English teachers at DB. I had to switch out of his class to Mrs Pacheco who absolutely sucks and I am regretting it
Impatient but knowledgeable
I feel like Roubian cares more about who we are as people instead of what we're supposed to learn in English--to be honest you don't learn much, but you spend lots of time discussing life (which is actually more important, isn't it?). He encourages thought and for us to share our opinions on issues, which is really cool. Overall he's super chill, extremely nice, funny, and really cares about us. Easy class, keeps you awake, almost no hw, only hard part was his quizzes--they're killer.
He is hands down the best teacher i've gotten my freshman year. He's so chill and understanding. He's really funny and cool. As long as you read the material and study for the vocab tests, you'll be golden. He sets his class up for you to succeed. He's always there for you. He likes to joke around but actually listens to what you have to say during discussions. He's the best :)
His class discussions are the best! My class had full hour long debates and instead of shutting it down like any other teacher, Mr. Roubian encouraged and added to it! He is so chill and my favorite teacher Freshmen year. He gives hard pop quizzes though so make sure you read the stories carefully!
One of the most CHILL people i know. He is the definition of CHILL. He even has a motorcycle :P He promotes deep class discussions and is very friendly, but never "try" anything during a test or quiz. He is really big on the honor system. Great teacher.
Mr Roubian is super chill! He's always encouraging class discussion, and I feel like he really cares what we have to say (unlike most teachers) He's a great teacher and very inspiring.
This is probably my favorite teacher of all my school years. I graduated a year ago. If you read and study the vocab, then you will not have an issue getting the grade you want. This proves that he is
Chillest eng class. His quizzes and tests are very detailed.. so study up But other than that, his class is reallly funn
Biased. Hah! Roubian is by far a teacher that is fair.
He is da best teacher ever! The best part was not having to read AR books. Instead, you read newspapers. And he has a sense of humor.
Really great teacher. His class was really fun and he knows what he's doing. Everyone got along with him great. Take his class :)
One of the best english teachers at DBHS. He's a great teacher and a great person. I had him for two years and aced both years.

a very nice teacher but literature tests and quizzes are extremely difficult and specific. getting an A is not diffcult nor easy.
this teacher is one of the best teachers i had. he seems to understand what people have to say. he agrees with their opinions. he cares about his students.

Mr. Roubian is an awesome english teacher and he is always there for you.
He is an great English teacher! and is most likely one of the best English teachers in the school!
awesome teacher and cool to talk to. you can talk to him like another kid because he knows where you're coming from and doesn't have an ego like some other teachers.
Just do good on vocab and u win! And we do these sweet video projects

Leaves the people to fend for themselves. Doesn't know how to use a computer.
I graduated 2001. Loved the class, learned a ton. Test are a little harder then most but very strait forward.
