Greatest history teacher I've ever had. Is very enthusiastic and it's apparent that he loves teaching. He always brings in methods that include us in the teaching, a very valuable skill.

The games help you learn; I never opened the book in that class, and I sailed through because I paid attention in class. He taught the material so well!

Second worst teacher at Poly. Class time is wasted on games, with very little history being covered.

Mr. Caragher is an awesome, awesome teacher. People who complain about work: you're learning, be happy! At least you'll be extremely prepared for Zetlian.

Great teacher. Very hard, but loves the subject and is inspirational. He works hard, and expects the same from you.

His willingness to help you outside of class is great and his approach is so different that it's a breath of fresh air, in 8th and 10th grade..
