Mr. Maney is a cool guy. Too bad he's leaving (retiring) next year. The class itself is easy, but he can sometimes assign massive amounts of homework and long essays (rarely).

Although he's a nice guy... he needs to work on his temper and what's more - his attitude in teaching. Lastly, he needs to check his facts before teaching us BS

Nice guy, but can be boring at times. Your grade is determined by mass homework collections, skits, and tests. This doesn't work for me (ADD). Others love it.
