This man was an awesome teacher and person. I had the good fortune of having him as my English teacher 3 out of the 4 years I was at MPHS. I knew that he was an excellant teacher while I had him but as I went on to college I realized what a gem he was. God bless.

Loves pointing out the crude humor in everything we read. He's a great guy, great teacher, but he does seem a bit moody on some days. His test are fine if you read the stuff and listen to him.

Sincerely cares about teaching, but is just extremely annoying....especially if you have him 1st period. Just laugh at his stupid jokes and youll be fine.

Thought he was pushy with his view and did not encourage our own interpretation. A bit of a flake

He is by far the most amazing teacher I have ever had in my life. Works hard to show the students the true nature of each and every book. Truly cares about his kids. Gives hard tests but we lv them.

Absent the last day of every quarter to grade assignments, dishes out "facts" that are horribly unproven/untrue and imposes his opinion on everyone, leaving no room for debate.

He's one of the best teachers in that school. I've learned "don't judge a book by its cover"

Mr. Newcombe was definately the BEST teacher I ever had. I loved the way he made us shake hands with the books when he passed them out.

I had Mr. Newcome as a 12th grader in AP English. I graduated in 1989 and still remember him as the BEST I ever had. I have been a teacher for 9 years and it's because of him!

Takes months to grade assignments, provides no useful feedback, refuses to consider others' opinions, and stubbornly holds factually erroneous beliefs.

Selfish!?! He stays after school to help students all the time, he's devoted his life to teaching. If anything, the man is an opinionated saint.

I had Mr. Newcombe twice (9th & 12th) in the late 80's. He was, and obviously still is an awesome teacher. He cared about me as a person. THANKS!

Mr. Newcombe knows his stuff and really loves the things he teaches. He looks kinda scary cuz he's so big, but he's a teddy bear. DO NOT GET HIM MAD AT YOU!
