Truly the most disrespectful teacher I have ever had. He doesn't understand how to treat his students respectfully. I have seen many kids come out of his class crying because he is so ignorant towards us. We hardly ever do anything significant during class because he spends the entire time yelling at us. Most of the work for that class is done at home.

JP was an incredibly difficult teacher to get along with, but was also extremely talented at his job. You learned a lot from his class and became a much better writer, but had to go through his erratic and sometimes cruel behavior to get there.

He knows what he teaches but doesn't tell his classes what to do. He just expects it from them.

biggest ego ever. Can teach, but he preaches being a good person and doesnt show it. Not to mention he is a weird. Who lives at a school? JP.

If you're willing to get past his "reputation" and extreme intensity, you will learn so much. He's a great teacher underneath the rough exterior, just be respectful, work hard, and listen.

he has his followers, but hes quite possibly the most overrated teacher of all time. posters featuring mediocre musicians and bizarre journal topics dont make you a good teacher.

This man uses intimidation in his classroom. What kind of a learning environment does that promote? He knows his material, but does that matter when he intimida

Tough teachers are good teachers...they make you think. It's the whole purpose of why they are there. JP has inspired a lot of students to think and learn.

"Dude...be still". That's my advice to you. Don't freak out so much! Some stuff is really not worth having a stroke over.... deep breaths.
