I had the pleasure of being in Mr. Whorton's class a very long time ago. He is very modern in his teaching and I actually learned in his class. He always gives ample opportunities for extra credit to boost one's grade, he takes an interest in his students, and he's truly one of the only teachers at Hamilton that didn't let me "slip through the cracks." I was painfully shy and he always gave me encouragement and praise that i needed. If you read these, thank you!! I'll never forget you :)
Okay, so for me there was a time before Whorton and after Whorton. Before him i never cared about anything, and i mean ANYTHING. I remember in the begining of the year i even wrote a paper about how lazy i am. But his class changed me. Suddenly i felt the urge of being a good student, of actually putting effort into things.Also, his class was always fascinating, i always looked forward to his class.
Mr. Whorton sometimes reads these. I know he does because he used to read them out loud to us in class. Mr. Whorton, if you're reading this, I hope you know you got me through a lot. You helped me develop my writing so that I could pour my emotions onto paper and, therefore, I am able to handle life so much better now. Thank you for all you do for your students. I hope nothing is grammatically correct in this because I know you'll make fun of that, haha. Thanks for a great year in your class.
One of the best teachers at Hamilton. Very easy class- little to no homework, and rarely any tests. He has a philosophy against exams, so he tries to limit giving those. He may tend to pick favorites, but he cares about all his students and he genuinely has a love of young people and teaching. He brings his zero hour bagels once a month for $1, and a couple times he brought in donuts just because. Many people try to switch into his English class. Great man.
Whorton will put in the work to make you think, but you definitely get so much out of his class. He's one of the smartest teachers I've ever had, and prepares you for the AP test so well.
The class is challenging, but very manageable; the work load decreases throughout the year. He is fair and unbiased when grading and in the classroom. Whorton brings plenty of experience, knowledge, and passion to the classroom. Highly recommended.
If you take his class, you will no longer have a life.
He isn't very nice to his students. Also thinks his students should live their lives around his class and the work he gives out (which is a lot). If you take his class, you won't have any time for your other classes' homework.
Is not afraid to cuss in front of his students (all the time). His class is extremely hard and Whorton asks for more than students can give. Very time consuming and difficult. Is ALWAYS expressing his political (liberal) views and gives his students Obama shirts as gifts, which is illegal. He gets away with way more than he should (A LOT) in the school because of his high status. Can also be insulting to students who don't believe in his political views.
Can't get much better than Mr. Whorton! He really loves what he does and is always passionate with his teaching. A good amount of work, but it is all meaningful and will enhance your learning. Definitely one of my favorite teachers in high school!
Mr. Whorton was one of my favorite teachers in high school, if not my favorite. He is very liberal in his teaching, and is highly intelligent and knowledgeable.
Mr. Whorton is an amazing teacher and an extremely intelligent man. He is constructive as well as encouraging and he always makes himself available to help. His class will make you a better writer, reader, and, most importantly, thinker!
Mr. Whorton, hands down one of the most awesome English teacher's I've ever had. If you like reading, he's your guy. You can always have a really great conversation with him about books and go to him for advice.
Mr. Whorton is the best english teacher I've ever had. He creates an entertaining and thought-provoking environment for students to learn. He gives great constructive criticism and helps anyone who as
Mr. Whorton is the greatest English teacher to ever grace the halls of any high school. I truly admire his intelligence and teaching abilities.
Patrick taught my son, Mikey Guintard and had a dramatic impact upon on mike.He is now at NAU, a senior in media doing straight A work..thank you, Patrick for taking the time to work with my son...
I love Mr. Whorton he is one of my favorite teachers, but he can be very intimidating when asking for help on your writing.
Mr. Whorton is truly an amazing person. He has taught me so much. Even if he disagrees with an opinion, he respects it. He recognizes what is important in a person, and looks over frivolities.
Completely changed how i look at books. Helped me improve my writing in ways i cannot even describe. Great teacher. Class i'll never forget!
Mr. Whorton is an excellent teacher. He creates a good enviornment in the classroom for learning and for discussion. He never judges students based on their opinions of a topic. great teacher! :)
He is one of the most witty and clever/funny teachers ever. His honors class is not easy but it is very well taught and a lot of fun.
difficult class but it is an honors class and should be. He favored certain students and it was obvious. Inappropriate at times.
Mr. Whorton is the best English teacher I have ever had. He truly probes us and challenges us to bring forth our inner opinions and helps us develop our thoughts and argumentative skills. The Best!
Mr. Whorton is the king of english. He knows what he's doing. By far the most helpful teacher i have ever had. He's better than my ENG102 professor. He makes you work hard for an A but worth the time.
incredibly intelligent, probably one of the most fascinating teachers i've had
He is hard but he makes you want to try hard. His class is fun because we discuss many different topics.
Most intelligent teacher I have ever had. I have never learned so much in just one class. Work can be difficult, but skills in analysis and writing will be drastically improved.
Although I don't always agree with him, he really makes you want to do your best. Fun class, intelligent teacher, all around good experience.
