I have him as a cross country coach, he is extremely knowledgeable, and a nice guy. He works you hard, and is very reasonable. He is not exactly super friendly, and you kind of have to be a favorite to keep a conversation. Coach Sayles is an outstanding coach, and does a variety of workouts that challenge you, and make you a better runner. Work hard, and he will like you. He's funny.
A great teacher and person until you dig deeper and try to hold a conversation with him; he will have none of it. He is very intelligent and knowledgeable on the subject. His wife is very difficult to get along with and for that I pity him.
Very egotistical. He requires his students to ask "How was your weekend, Mr. Sayles?" every Monday.
I'm currently taking IB History of the Americas with Mr. Sayles. I love that he includes Constitutional law lessons in our units. Read the assigned pages, do the homework, and outline when preparing for essays.
His style is "by the book" lecture for AP Gov. but, hey, it's a college class. I liked him as a person and I liked his class. Get to know him; he's funny.
from a former student, he is a major reason that I teach!
