He doesn't have terribly high standards, which doesn't encourage growth as a student, but is a nice GPA booster (for me, I think he grades based on how much he likes you as a person). Super nice, very funny, class was fun.

I got WORSE in english last year. He had a NEGATIVE effect on my writing skills. And you are not allowed to have your own opinion on a book in class. You must agree with him

probably the worst teacher i've ever had. narrow minded, grades on opinions, and doesn't really seem like he's read the books he tries to talk about.

Funny guy and good teacher as long you pay attention in class. Doesn't overanalyze English like some of the teachers at the school but does understand the subject very well.

He tries to be funny, but he really isn't. You can't have your own opinion in his class, ever. He won't accept anything he doesn't agree with. Just not a good teacher.

He is pretty much an awful teacher. Sometimes he's worse than others, but his refusal to listen to new ideas and his inability to teach how to write a "provable" thesis cancels out his occasional wit. He also makes fun of stu

This teacher showed a complete lack of professional courtesy by handing back assignments 6-8 weeks after they had been handed in. By that time, other papers had been due and the students had no idea

He's very funny, but his refusal to go along with any interpretation of a book/poem/whatever other than his own is annoying.

1997-1998 Soph English - This guy rocks. He has a fund for new markers, make sure you donate. His impersonation of Eathan Frome made me understand the book. Summer - great flick - he explains it well too. Adams is a great sub

Best ever. Ask him for his Ethan Frome impersonation! Also ask for "Adams" he'll know what it means. - Class of 2000 - (McDonald - where's my $12 tip?!)

Full of himself and unclear in his expectations. Don't try to produce essays that make sense, just put in some cheesy jokes and he'll love it.
