So bummed to learn that this man left LA High. I am sure he left for greener pastures. Hatem was the best teacher I ever had and that includes college and graduate school. Cool guy too.
This man changed my life. The smartest teacher I ever had and that includes all through college.
The only thing I enjoyed in High school was hanging out in Hatem's room. This guy was awesome.
The school has never been the same ever since he left. The greatest teacher I ever had.
I think Jim is a reactionary, close minded, control figure. He is one of the poorest teachers I've ever encountered.
I miss this man so much. He was the best and coolest teacher ever at LA High. His room was always a refuge for me. Thank you for everthing Mr. H wherever you are.
Easily was the best teacher I ever had while at LA High. Sorry to hear that he left cause I never got the chance to go back and thank him for all he did for me.
This school is just not the same without him. I will miss his jokes and wisdom. A great teacher has left us.
omg. I just found out he is changing schools. It is a sad day for all roman alumni. We love you Mr.Hatem. :(
I am so sad to hear that this great teacher is leaving. The magnet will never be the same.
Hands down, the funniest, smartest, no-nonsense teacher at LA High. I think my parents would take me out of this school if it were not for his classes.
Smart, clever, very outspoken and easy to get along with make him a likable person, both to teachers and students alike. His teaching method is nevertheless flawed
Best. Highschool. Teacher. Evarrrr111!1!!!! 11!1!1!!
Heck, he's leaps and bounds better than my current college Biology professor. I miss the "Hatem" lectures.
I used to hate him until I realized that my inability to get a good grade was not a reason to dislike him. He is actually a great teacher and a crack-up. I just need to study mor
he is very mean, he also tries to be funny but he really isn't, he also doesnt explain the work well
What a cool site. Everything this man told me when I had him many many years ago turned out to be sooooo true. Listen to this man. He is brutally honest but right on about stuff
So cool and funny. I missed him so much when we were on vacation. Without Hatem and Pemberton the school would be a wasteland.
Take the time to understand this man. He is brutally honest and ALWAYS right on. The smartest and funniest teacher ever.
The only high school teacher I miss. Everything I have accomplished has been because of this man. He is a little hard but always tells it like it is. Listen to him.
He's a fun teacher but hard and he is really sraight foward with everybody but the best and coolest of the whole entire school.
At first I hated this man but when I was in trouble he was the only person people told me to go to for help. I love him now.
If you want to learn anything in high school thenyou must take Mr. Hatem's classes. He is the smartest and funniest teacher ever, and he really cares about his students.
When I was in High School last year I never realized how much this man was preparing me for college. He is the best.
This man is so sweet and caring if you take the time to get to know him. He just tries to be mean but it is fake. SMART and FUNNY
i heard so much bad stuff about this dude, but when i went to interview him for the newspaper, he seemed pretty cool and encouraged me to do my best
The smartest, funniest and coolest teacher around. Wish I still had him.
A hard mean teacher... Huh! That's what he wants us to believe. He is a softy. He will do ANYTHING for his students
This guy is soooo smart and soooo funny. It is the only class I look forward to. Sure wish I was passing though.
This man is HARD!!!! But, if you want to learn ANYTHING then listen to him. I learned so much from this man.
This man is so smart and you can come to him with any problem. He is very funny too.
quite simply, he is the best teacher I ever had (even though I gave him a hard time sometimes)
Don't try to get away with anything in Mr. H's class, but if you want to learn something, this is where to be.
the coolest and most straightforward teacher at LAHS
If it wasn't for teachers like Mr. Hatem I wouldn't even bother going to school. He tries to be a meanie but it is all a cover.
It wasn't till my second year in college until I realized just how much I owe this great teacher. He is the best.
Imagine that, a teacher who gives quizzes. He gives quizzes because he actually teaches and has something to quiz us on. Grow up.
Mr. H is cool!!!!!!!!!! he and habibian are some of the best teachers at LAHS. eventhough they are hard you will learn alot from them ther are both funnyandcool
It is really quite simple simple. If you are interested in learning then you need to have Mr. Hatem. He is the smartest and best there is!!!
Great teacher! Mr. Hatem, you are one of LA High's teacher-gems. We cannot replace you! (Although your cynical outlook on life is more than inspiring.)
At least he challenges his students. I wish I had him for every class
The coolest. Mr. Hatem tries to come across as a meanie but he is really a puppy dog. He will do anything for his students.
Mr. Hatem will never make you do dumb stuff. He is the best teacher at LA High.
I just had Hatem for homeroom but he's just the nicest guy. I learned so much from him.
I still remember the cameras he has on his walls... Very cool teacher, knows his stuff and most of all knows his students.
I used to think that I knew it all...until I met Mr. Hatem. He taught me things years ago that I am just now realizing.
Don't even think about getting away with anyhting in Mr.Hatem'sclass. He is without doubt, the best LA High has to offer.
It is really quite simple. If you want to be successful in college then take every class you can with Hatem.
I graduated 2 years ago and the only person from LA High I miss is Mr. Hatem. He is the best.
I wish all my teachers like like Mr. Hatem. He is the best.
This man is so smart that it is scary. He will teach you lots if you just pay attention.
best teacher ever. super funny. cried infront of him and gosh so nice!
You'll have to work for a good grade in this class but you sure will learna lot. He is very smart and impossible to fool.
He is not that hard. He just grades hard but in the end he always curves scores. He doesn't tell you that though. Plus he is funny.
He IS mean. So what. We all know it is just an act. He is really very caring but he would never admit it. Best teacher for sure.
Yes, some people think he is mean but that is because they don't understand tuff love. When he first yelled at me I just smiled and he melted like butter.
What a guy. What a teacher. Without him I would know nothing.
I only have Hatem for homeroom but he's still the coolest. He's just so funny and even though some ppl say he's mean, he's always been the best to me.
Mr. Hatem is the only teacher who tells it like it is. You learn so much when he goes off on one of his tangents.
Not as hard as some people think. He is very smart and funny and makes you learn (whether you want to or not)
Hatem made my life miserable in my senior year with all the studying. And I will be thankful forever. Best teacher ever.
Deca 2000 was the best team ever. Nothing but fond memories of that year.
NOBODY prepares you for college like Hatem. Better get used to studying if you want to get a good grade.
OK, so he makes us study and he is a bit moody. He is still the best teacher at LA High.
Don't let the mean look fool you. He is really a very sweet and caring man. The best teacher at LA High
hi mr. hatem!!! Well mr hatem looks mean at first but after i got to know him better he is pretty cool and funny, but he makes you study but its all worth it
Hard but very fair. He knows a lot and if you pay attention you will learn.
Not as hard as most people think. He just makes you study to get a good grade. so what. He is the best at LA
Hatem is so hard and mean that he is actually cool. A refreshiung change from the other teachers. He has taught me much more than chemistry.
Man, this guy makes you study!!!!! Guess that is how HE got so smart so I will give it a try. Pretty funny too.
The funniest, coolest, smartest teacher at LA High. Don't let the rough exterior fool you, he is really very sweet.
He's hard but onl;y by LA High standards. Teaches us lots of useful stuff about life too.
HE IS THE BEST! He is funny, smart, and if you are nice to him, he will be nice to you. I love him!
boring class...teacher cant teach...he's the meanest teacher ive ever had
He has taught me the most important feeling - HATEred.
Far and away the most knowledeable teacher I ever had. This guy knows his stuff and everything else it seems
hes aight, all u have to do is study man, thats all, dont blame the teacher for your stupidity
Arrogant, mean-spirited, unforgiving, but extremely knowledgeable
Shame on all you who bad-mouth the man. He ownz joo. Indubitably.
has like a split persona, he cares and encourages, but strict and cold..........
Jim Hatem was one of the coolest teachers I ever had.
