He's definitely knows what he's talking about. He has a great energy in the classroom and is one of the few teachers I've known that actually make the material interesting and make me want to learn.

Mr. Labenze is by far my favorite teacher. He's easy going and i can talk to him like a friend but at the same, depend on him for help with my studies. He's very easy going and has a great sense of humor.
