I had him for Freshman English 9/10 and he made english class very enjoyable, especially because it was my first year at the school. I agree with everyone that he had favorites, but I still loved the 80 minute days where he would do activities like vocab baseball (very fun and helpful), academic challenge, or told us great stories. As long as you don't complain, his class is very fun. :)

He's funny and tells the best stories and is really passionate about what he teaches. Awesome teacher. (Don't expect any 4.0's in his class though)

Really picks favorites - he is a cool and funny guy - but is one of Greeley's WORST teachers. He screwed up my confidence in writing and i'm still suffering writing problems b/c of it. Scrwd me over

He certainly had his favorites and life was good if you were one of them. Very passionate about the subject matter.

He's a good teacher, he's entertaining, and a cool guy outside of class, but he blatantly picks favorites, is a very very hard grader (almost arbitrarily so), and has excessively high expectations.

Terrible handwriting, and weird grading system. But besides that he is a very cool teacher. I learned a lot from him and I hope I can have him again as a teacher next year.

He had perhaps the most roundabout teaching style I have ever seen, but we all learned and had a good deal of fun. Black magic teaching method. :)
