Give Mr. Baker a chance. At first he often picks on people and is unfair with work. After a while however, you will start to change your mind about him. He only picks on the kids who don't do the work, is more linient about homework, and class becomes easier. Mr. Baker is hands down one of the most knowledgable teachers I've ever had and knows pretty much everything about current events, politics, and economics. He can also be very funny at times. Im really glad I had him as a teacher.

One of my favorite teachers. People think he's rude to students just because they don't understand his humor and personality. He is a very fair, straight forward, and funny teacher.

If you are a socialist and a sharp critic of US foreign policy you will feel right at home in baker's class. If you're not, you may find some of his rhetoric to be alienating.

Negative: He is often incorrect with his facts, liberal pro-hillary, rabidly pro-israel, better on others. Speaks monotonously, tough grader. Positive: does teach a good amount, fair workload.

Difficult class, but a useful one too if you're going to an advanced history course junior year. He probably prepares you the best, and he's a nice guy too.

Baker is a good and dedicated teacher, that CARES about what he's teaching, without a doubt. you get what you put into his class, and he appreciates hard work.
