Mr. Torres is awesome. The multiple choice section of his exams are really hard, but if you do really well on the essay and show that you know your material you could easily get 19 or 20 out of 20 on that section. Sometimes his coloring or assigned group assignments are a bit tough. Still great at informing about the political world with no bias and encouraging great discussion. I would like for him to talk a bit about corruption in the government a bit more, as this is a topic he avoids.

Just a really nice guy and an excellent teacher. He's one of those teachers that is so good you'll pick a class because you know he's teaching it. Made every class I've had with him interesting and he's a very fair teacher. Can't say enough good stuff about him.

Hands down best teacher I've ever had. He is so genuine and really explores both sides of the situation in historical events. Never forces his opinion, but creates excellence discussion. He's also the only teacher that ever asked me why I was late all the time and if there was a reason behind it, without getting mad at me. His class discussions are so helpful and he really appreciates the little details in a person. 10/10

Mr.Torres is a good guy, History 12 was a pretty fun class. When he knew the class was losing attention hed tell us a story, usually containing his buddy Eric, and then we'd get back on task. The SOP he makes ya do isnt so bad.
