Mr. Martin is one of the best teachers I've ever had. He is funny, knowledgable, and very helpful. Although he likes to talk and can carry on a lecture for hours, the information he gives us very insightful and often hilarious.

Best English teacher ever. His class consists of...English, duh. He will teach you the best possible way you can write and his lessons have stayed with me ever since. Also never take anything he says seriously. Most of the time he appears condescending, but taken in an easy-going way he's just hilarious. He does go into rants, but if you're paying attention, they generally have a deeper meaning than what they initially seem. He the same air and general personality as Dr. Brown in Back to the Future, and i

Mr. Martin is a boss. Most of the class consists of writing and analysis, so if you're good at that, you're good to go. Well, as long as you don't disagree with him too much. He's very smart, and as a result he's a little bit arrogant. Still a great guy overall, though. :)

Mr. Martin is very intelligent and over-qualifed to be teaching high school. I am in my 3rd in University and he has improved my writing more than all my other English teachers/professors combined. Also, take his Film as Literature class if you want a super easy and chill class, it'll also improve your writing.

Loves to hear himself talk, but what he has to say is usually pretty interesting. Most of class time is spent listening to him talk. He basically analyzes the book for you. Getting good grades in his class is usually just a matter of regurgitating whatever he says about the book. He's extremely arrogant, but I will say that I felt I had a firm grasp of the literature we covered in his class.

Mr. Martin is a great teacher, with a lot of charisma, and he is extremely passionate about what he teachers his students. He's funny, too, even if it can be boring. Overall, I'd love to have him as my English teacher again.
