Mr. Helton was super nice and he likes his job. But, I mean, AP Macro is just not his thing. He does not expect you to take the AP test so he does not prepare you for it. Thanks a lot. HE did get a little too close to the pretty girls, who did come scantily clad so if you put yourself out there, be prepared to get his full attention. He pretty much lets you do as you like. If you're failing, talk to him and work something out. If you never speak up, you'll never get help. Get test corrections!!!

The few days he was actually in class he was cool, and super easy, but he disappeared so we had a long term sub, who didnt know a thing about AP econ. I think i unlearned things i used to know.

He hasn't even managed to show up for half of this year. I don't know anyone who's actually taking the AP test--how can you if you don't even have a teacher? He's a nice guy, but AP Econ is a joke.

Awesome. Talks to students like friends. Have a casual conversation with him and you'll learn more about life than you'll ever learn in econ. He is hilarious too.

Funny guy, easy class, but he really wasn't prepared to teach us AP Econ. He should take some notes from Mr. Nicola.

He teaches to the dumb kids but I guess someone has too.It's hard when you teach the only subject kids actually have to pass to try to be stimulating. He's cool

He's a good teacher but he's stuck teaching a not so fun subject (economics) in a dumbed-down remedial style (so every student can pass). He's a smoker.

His first words to us were, I think Homework is over-rated He teaches very effectively without the use of excessive homework.
