Mikey B has exerted a considerable influence on my personal growth through his Harvard degree. He is very Bollhorstian but has good vocabulary words. I want a quiz.

Mr. B is one of the most gifted teachers I have had. His class is difficult, but he helped me improve drastically as a writer. I really admire his dedication to his students! I always looked forward to his class, and I really miss having it. My advice to anyone who has him is to always have him look over your essays.

I love this teacher so much. He helped me improve my writing and I do my best to help him by tutoring his current students whenever I can. He inspired my love for English and my desire for a future in teaching. He was a bit off-putting at the beginning of the year but he truly is a great teacher and man.

One of the best teachers I have ever had. In the beginning of the year, I was pretty bad at writing, after getting a couple C's on essays, I was pretty much ready to give up. He reached down and helped me improve my writing so much and I got an A both semesters. Entrepreneur project was awesome. Loved his class. Second semester I was even receiving A's on writing assignments and finished with a solid A. Also had him for AP CompSci. Although he is not an expert programmer, he's a great teacher.

I miss this class so much! Best class I've taken at this school. I learned so much in that class, and we all really bonded. We were like one big family by the end of the year. Bollhorst cares about his students as people and will treat you like an adult. Don't take him too seriously if he's mean to you. This class was an amazing experience.

Bollhorst made my year. Seriously, this class was what motivated me to get myself to school in the mornings. He's an amazing teacher who pays a lot of attention to his students. If he finds you annoyi

How many characters does it take to fill up this little box? I may resort to not using the space bar in order to maximize the amount I can write. Oh crap I am running out of characters!! Good teacher!

Definitely fits the "know-it-all" description, and at least he doesn't teach us very much in class, so he appears pretty ignorant. Also willing to dumb-down concepts way too much.

Give him a chance. You may not like him at first, but get to know him... it is well worth it. He takes a personal intrest in every one of his students.

Had him 7 yrs ago and still think about some of the things he talked about in class. Wish I knew how much sense they made back then.
