His sarcasm levels are off the charts. He's a super fun teacher, and helps me understand the course information without making me feel not smart. His sarcasm levels unbelievably increased as the year went on. His sarcasm is so fun. He makes English II bearable, and I look forward to it everyday.

He is an amazing teacher who really cares, but does not show it. He's very knowledgable and teaches you many things. His sarcasm always entertains the class. He would in all likelihood correct this entire comment.

Challenging, sarcastic, and inspiring all rolled into one teacher. Three different English classes -and 8th gr Physical Science-were all fantastic! He also helped me decide on my college. Thanks!
