He's an awesome, clear teacher and a nice person. He is always there to help you if you ask for it. Couldn't ask for a better geometry teacher!

He seems deceptively nice. But in actuallity he's neither nice nor fair.

If you're on the crew team, he'll love you. If you aren't, he probably won't care about you. But if you work on the newspaper, he'll be outright malicious, rude, and antagonistic toward you.

Washburn is without doubt the best coach in the nation. He doesn't yell at kids-just expects them to motivate themselves. It works. I speak from experience...

Wash is purely the man. NEVER gets angry at his rowers, he is ALWAYS encouraging, and he knows (unlike some) that TAKING STROKES is what makes the team better!

Washburn is so awesome. Instead of using double periods to give twice as much homework or tests, he goes on random cluster dean tangents and makes the math that he teaches so much more fun. He is an amazing teacher.

he doesn't actually teach, he expects students to simply read the math book, and when he never shows up to conference even after he makes appointments
