Everyone knows and loves Mr. Edminster. I had him as my writing mentor for 3 years but I needed his help most when I was a freshman. I didn't know english well enough to write well organized essays but I was lucky to have Mr. Edminster. The only problem you might have with him is that he sometimes gets overly excited about a book and spoils it. I also took Modern Gothic Literature just to have him as my teacher in the senior year.

I never liked writing before taking creative writing. I always wanted to write freely and in my own way but I was never given that opportunity until I took Mr. Edminster's class. He's a great teacher who can and will help students improve their writing through fun methods. At first he seems serious but once you get to know him you see he is a great guy who enjoys teaching.

Completely transformed my writing. Edminster has taught me how to be more courageous with my work and how to write pieces that interest me and others.

Mr. Edminster is far by my favorite teacher I've had. At first, he can come off as cold and requires a lot of work. I had him for AP Literature and Composition which did have a lot of work, but it is an AP class. For Modern Gothic Literature and Contemporary Literature he doesn't assign that much work. And if he does assign a lot of work, it is just reading and they are pretty good books. If you get into the books like Mr Edminister you will have a great year. If you don't read, he WILL know.

Aside from his monotone voice and lack of ability to express emotion... he is AMAZING!!!! He has helped my writing improve so much in Creative Writing, and he has a great approach to teaching.

JOOEELLLI had him for Creative Writing and he is the man! You've got to get used to his humor though, because he has a monotone voice. However, when you actually listen to what he says it's hysterical. He's a bit of a harsh grader, but he gives great feedback and helps you grow as a writer.

He's a great english teacher who really shows you how to think. Just be careful because he is a pretty random and hard grader, but if you read and do the work you should be fine.
