From my 1983 experiences, this teacher really challenged us to think unconventionally, question assumptions and go beyond narrow perspectives. This is a college level teacher for sure, and to learn from him one should consider oneself lucky.

My experience with Mr. Barber goes way back to the 1970's when Baton Rouge High first became a Magnet school. I want to express my personal thanks to him for teaching me skills that have served me all my life as a journalist. R. Fitch.

I love this man!!! He's a genius and tells great stories. However, he's too easy on his students. I felt gypped of a chance to really experience his class because he gave us weeks to learn what could've been learned in days. Super easy A.

Someone who knows how to love life and gets his students to do so, too. Very funny, interesting, and knowledgeable. More than a teacher, but I don't know what.

Mr. Barber really creates students who yearn for knowledge. I loved having class outside and his grading strategies. I graduated in 96 and still remember his philosophy class.

He is one of the best teachers that I ever had. I took his philosophy class in 1996-1997 on a whim. I ended up with a philosophy minor when I graduated from college.
