10/10 would Joe Biden again. In all seriousness though, he is a great teacher. Although we may get off topic quite a bit, he still manages to keep us relatively on task, even if someone says something about steel trees or "grasping it." I found myself rather prepared for the final. When I move on to the Shake and Bake, I will miss that class. I will miss all of the unforgettable moments, from Odysseus's thighs to the Imagist poetry.

One of my favorite teachers this year. His teaching is sometimes unclear but he always relates things back to the main idea of his lesson.

Mr. Hornback is one of the best english teachers at Jesuit. He is fun and engaging, yet he still teaches the subject, mostly on arguing. The whole class revolves around argumentation, and he teaches it well.

This Teacher know what he's doing. When he's talking, you are probably listening or laughing at how ridiculous his remarks are. If you have the choice, choose MR. HORNBACK!

Mr. Hornback = FUN. He is a great, funny, and smart guy. Maybe the best (and coolest) at Jesuit. I think that everybody should get the Hornback experience. "Now, gentlemen, let's stand for prayer." *hand signals*

Very awesome teacher, almost certainly the best in the school. "Gentlemen, I honestly don't care what Whoopi Goldberg has to say about the war." Too bad not everyone gets to have the Hornback experience.
