Fun for students but doesn't really follow curriculum. I didn't learn anything in his class but he is pretty smart I guess. His grading style is rather annoying and he is obsessed with his college days and really the focus of the class is college.
Mr. Martin taught the class how to write college level papers while also telling us about his fascination with the American Chestnut tree, elaborating on how he has joined the American Chestnut society. He gave us helpful websites like the Perdue Owl website to help with grammar, and if you asked him questions he would take the time to answer and elaborate.
Mr. Martin uses many media means to teach and for students to do reports, however, his classes are hard and requires understanding of advanced material. If you're looking for a challenge and opportunity to express yourself 'he's the one'.
Not a good teacher at all, he makes you do college level assignments and expects you know how to do the whole assignment with no help. His reading checks are IMPOSSIBLE and ruins your grade then gives you no way to make it up. You grade will never be good in that class drop it ASAP.
Mr. Martin is a great teacher. He is incredibly demanding of his students but he wants them to win at life. He is also one crazy dude. He runs marathons, grows chestnut trees, hikes on the Appalachian Trail and laughs at all our stupid jokes. If you read this I hope you teach forever--thank you!
Smart. Very passionate about literature, therefore a hard grader. May be a bit too lenient with student behavior in class and somewhat unorganized.
Mr. Martin is a really cool guy. He has very high expectations. Pleasure to be in his class. Very laid back guy, VERY. Smartest teacher in the school in my opinion
Coolest teacher I've ever had. Do us all a favor Mr. Martin and get yourself elected president.
Martin, you ROCK. You may be the toughest english teacher in the school, but you're definitely the best. You really care about all fo us. Thank you BUNCHES!!
AP Senior Lit"The questions are made up and the points don't matter".Yet learned more in 1 semester with M. than in rest of four years where points did matter.
Mr. Martin challenged us to strive for our best. if he reads this mr. martin thank you
He is an Irish Studies major! Need I say more? He is such a man. He is everything an English teacher needs to be. AP Senior Lit Rules!
He'll GET english in your head one way or anyother, but he'll make it fun.

Mr. Martin is the best English teacher I've ever had!! he's awesome!!
I had you for two years and I loved every moment. From the flying pens to my daily mental breakdowns in APAS, you support and cared about each of your students. You are considerate and an idealist at heart: two wonderful aspects of a great teacher.
THE BEST ENGLISH TEACHER I HAVE EVER HAD!!! he is truly a quality teacher
Martin will bust your butt, but you'll love every minute of it
