He's so awkward and excited it's amazing. Must take western philosophy.
AMAZING. He's quirky, funny, and so nice! Very passionate about English and Philisophy. Had him for Honors and Philo, and I couldn't have asked for a better teacher and discussion environment. TAKE PHILOSOPHY!!
I had his for Western Philosophy. He's really nice, sometimes a little too nice. He makes a lot of jokes and pop culture references in class. He also fidgets a lot and gets really excited about random things. Overall, he was a really good teacher.
Love this dude.
This man is inspirational and amazing. Open-minded, out of the box, philosophical... Everything you could ask for in a teacher, and more. I've left his class awe-inspired and amazed too many times to count. He's not a typical teacher, failed and weathered, scoffing at the "stupidity" of adolescents... Just the opposite, insightful and encouraging.
Funny, quirky, amazing, friendly, nice, approachable. And he never lets his own beliefs corrupt lessons.
TLDR: Wish he taught EVERY CLASS.
I had him for Honors English this year. It was a wonderful experience. Hanley has this endearingly awkward quality. He's hilarious. We get to thoroughly discuss the books we read in class, and he makes things very clear. He helps prepare us as much as possible for quote explications and essays. His grading seemed fair, as nothing was graded too harshly. The 75-25 weight for honors may seem intimidating, but it isn't that bad. Get Hanley, he's an amazing teacher!
Dude Mr.Hanley is so awesome!!! His Honors English class itself is not too bad, the work is fairly easy if you actually do it. Not too many assignments compared to other teachers, but I am learning SO MUCH. I think this is the class where I've learned the most.
He is VERY thorough in class and goes over whatever we are working on. You think for yourself while hearing the thought of other students as well. The only thing is that essays and tests are 75% of your grade, so you have to do well on them if you
I had him for Philosophy class. It's a REALLY interesting class,
He's one of the best teachers at MHS. You won't regret taking his Western Philosophy class.
Western phl. is like the single greatest class at MHS! Take It!!!!!
Probably the most popular teacher at MHS. He is so nice and funny and really connects with each one of his students. He explains everything that needs an explanation and always takes your opinion into consideration. He is really a great guy and you just can't help but love him! He also really tries to pass all of his students with an A.
I had him for philosophy and english. He is a very good teacher! He is also quite famous because he is on youtube. If you wanna see it check out Pass the Thizz face! on youtube. Its hella funny!!
Hon. Eng. was a breeze with him, but that didnt help me thru AP Eng. He's fun and quite outofthebox. Had a lot of Fun in class. Liked him so much, I had him call my name for graduation. Thanks Hanley
had him twice a day my senior year for eng/phil, it was worth it. enjoyed both of his classes very much. not only a great teacher, but a great person. i will miss him and his goofy ways!
BEST TEACHER EVER!!!! take his english III honors or any other class ESPECIALLY PHILOSOPHY!!!!!!!
Md. Hanley is the best teacher! Loved his Philosophy class, one class that i was always looked forward to going!
The man is an icon at MHS. He takes his love of teaching very far in class and is very patient, even if we tend to goof off once in a while. The coolest vegetarian bike-riding philosopher I know.
he's SOOO FUNNY gosh. he's my favorite teacher. love his philosophy class, and i'm actually interested in what he teaches. i recommend taking philosophy with mr. hanley :D
One of the best teachers at MHS. He's funny AND smart. and sarcastic. His lectures are really cool and his homework is easy too.
Pretty hard for Honors English but worth it the entire year
sarcastic. almost too sarcastic. great teacher, awesome philosophical views. his teaching material is fun to learn. great guy.
He is a great teacher. He makes Philosophy and English really fun. He even made BEOWULF fun, now that's amazing. Fair grader and really interested in student progress. Good and funny guy.
Cool in philosophy but very hard in english. However, an awesomely cool teacher. A rare funny breed
Honestly interested in his subject, seems to enjoy teaching. Do what you can to prove yourself to him! I slacked off and missed out on becoming his friend. :(
of all my teachers i've had at mhs, i have the most respect for mr hanley. he is one of the best teachers you can have. funny, nice, and really helpful.
he's an AWESOME teacher! You'll love him! He's a pretty funny guy too and his lectures are really understandable. hes really good.
Seems to grade easiest of the 3 honors English teachers, very funny. Stares at people sometimes.
I love Mr. Hanley. He is so awesome. The way he teach is very clear. He helps you a lot in Western Philosophy.
hanley is one funny guy i had him for philosophy and it was just a blast in there
I've had him for Honors English and Philosophy and he is an excellent teacher! He is THE funniest teacher I know and very nice. Take his classes, he's fun!
Mr Hanley is so awesome. He adds humor to learning. i could listen to him all day! hes very very clear. brazen hussy.
great guy, had alot of good things to say...not too clicheish....but he was very quiet, reserved, furtive...nonetheless, a superb and competent teacher
an english teacher who actually made me interested also. i think at some point during the year i considered becoming an english major, just like mr. hanley =).
Man, Honors English was hard...but then again, I slacked off a lot. He's a VERY funny teacher though :-)
His interest in Philosophy makes you interested in it when you take the class, great guy and funny too
had him for western philosophy. extremely laid back and lax, but he earns the respect of his students through a genuine interest in what he teaches. great man
For HONORS ENG: Most of the literary works are sad and depressing.. enter the class with a happy jolly mind..=)
Mr. Hanley is a really funny teacher. He can make a class pretty interesting.
