Mr. Runion is an amazing person who if I were his age I would surely be friends with. But class is almost unbearable. The essays are overly difficult and unclear. He is extremely knowledgeable about the course and the material but is only really helpful to those who care about the course. Also should rethink his policy of no 100%'s. While I agree that no one is perfect, writing assignments aren't supposed to be graded on if it is perfect. There is a rubric designed to be followed for a reason.
Runion is extremely knowledgeable and a nice person to boot. I learned a lot in his class and still look back on him fondly. It's hard to get an A, but he's more than worth it, especially if you're in an AP English class. When you're doing research papers take notes on what he recommends!!! They're extremely helpful sites and I still use them in university.
He grades harsh and kills your grades sometimes
He is one of my favorite teachers, he will help you with anything you need whether it is a college recommendation or proofreading for another class.
An enriching and conclusive introduction to poetry. He's probably the most accessible, informative teachers I had in high school. He taught poetry so well that one of my majors at U of R is creative writing. I've published a few poems, and I have no one but him to thank for instilling in me a love for poetry.
He's my favorite English teacher that I've ever had, and that says something, since I'm an English major in college now. He was so nerdy in the greatest way, he was always so funny and easy to get along with. You're super lucky if you get a class with him, because he's fantastic.
FANTASTIC teacher! Made this my best year of English yet. He taught me what it means to gain understanding through written text in the coolest ways. Hardly ever a dull moment in his class. Great guy!
He's so dorky, in the coolest kind of way. Everything he says makes sense, and he's so kindhearted and helpful with everything. One of three of my favorite teachers in Spencerport.
Made English enjoyable again. My current favorite class. Work hard, and you'll do fine. When annotating poems, try listening to Foo Fighters. Swear that it helps
He makes you work hard, but this is definately my favorite class this year. Last year, I abhorred english, but i really enjoy it this year with Mr Runion. All-around, a great teacher
Just do your work and you'll be fine in his class. My only complaint with him is he takes way too long to hand back papers. However I'm happy with what I got out of his class.
mrrunion is one tf the greatest teachers ever. inside class and out of class. i had him last year&he is always there for me if i want to talk or to help with any problems. a very nice man all around.
I think he is okay. Hes not that great, hes really tough, takes forever to hand back papers and talks the whole class and always refers to poetry! I used to love poetry but now I am not too fond of it
He makes all other english teachers look bad... he knows what he's talking about and is friendly and approachable. He's my favorite teacher so far at SHS.
Mr. Runion is THE greatest teacher Spencerport. I actually like poetry now!!!!
One of the best teachers you will ever have! I love English this year because of him. He does take forever to get papers back to you, but hey, he has a life outside of school, too!
very cool guy, made me like english a lot better, and fair grader- he should be given a raise or something.
great guy, easy grader, but took forever to get things back to us
