Mr. Willens is a brilliant English teacher and a good person. In fact, he is the best English teacher I have ever had. He is given a bit of a bad reputation from the students though. I think his reputation stems from the fact that he is a very hard teacher for anyone that does not have a passion for English. That's why so many kids dislike him. Also, I can say for certain that he isn't sexist. I'm a girl, and he treated me with just as much respect as he gave the boys.

YEAH WILLENS! Willens is the greatest teacher ever, and those who disagree don't know how to grapple with the text, or how to analyze the golden nuggets. Willens knows the books so well that you can say a quote and he will say the page number of it. Willens is THE GOD of english teachers.
