I took AP econ from Mr Near. Super friendly guy. The final was the death of me.
He's probably one of the easiest teachers I've ever had. If you're on his good side and you happen to show interest in what he talks about, you can get what you want pretty easily. He gives nearly no homework, he gives pop quizzes once and awhile but will announce the dates it could be held. I sat in front of his class, spoke up and interacted with his discussions and lessons once and awhile. He let me text and go on FB during class all the time. He's just a very nice guy.
Very laid back and easy class. Only homework is a one page worksheet and easy study guide every chapter. Test aren't too rigorous. The class can get too...boring sometimes but he's a fun guy.
He is an extremely intelligent man, who knows a lot. I had US history and Econ AP, his lecturing is great for History, but in Econ he was ineffective. SUPER SMART, probably should had become a lawyer
I had him for U.S. History. His class is kicked back and relaxed. He was compassionate, answered all my questions, and did NOT give a bunch of worksheets (busywork).
kind of a boring class but he gets the job done I guess.
Easy class! Awesome guy. Very interested in the students and very relaxed.
When you come in freshman year, it is teachers like Mr. Near who make you want to come back for your sophomore year.
I had Near Freshman year... lol that rhymes! N e how he's way cool and pretty easy... yeah.
He is the best teacher ever!!!! He knows what he is talking about and will help anyone. Never really have to much work to do in his class just study guides.
Super Cool! "How are you today, Lorissa?" (daily routine). Is interested in his students lifes? Have to watch boring movies, he even falls asleep! Great Teacher
best guy ever. ask him about the band rush. learned alot and had fun.
