I had him for Drama this year and I really like him! He's hilarious and likes to joke around a lot, but is still a very helpful teacher if you have trouble with scripts or acting, etc. If you have Drama class, you'd be lucky to get him! Definitely signing up for Drama again next year

He's so cool, he actually lets you have fun in his class and he doesn't take things too seriously or get offended by what people say, you can be really open in his class which I think is awesome.

I absolutely adore him! I think he's an amazing person first off, because he actually treats you like a human being. I have to say he's by far my favorite english teacher out of all the ones I've ever had. When I found out initially he was my teacher I was a little irritated as I had heard only the worst things, but I don't know what those people were talking about because he actually gives you the mark you deserve. If you don't like him it's probably because you don't like the mark YOU EARNED!

Oh my God! We just started Shakepeare and it's like we've just met the REAL Halliday! The weird thing is I'm actually understanding it. I liked him already but this guy clearly loves this stuff best. I heard he's teaching drama next year and I'm signing up.

Terrible teacher. If you're a guy you'll love this class. Graduation year and all he did was discus vulgar, irrelevant content with the male half of the students and assigned all of three assignments for the year. Absolutely unhelpful. I have no respect for this teacher. Nice guy, but shouldn't be allowed to teach high school students.

He's great as long as you know to not take him personally. He'll pick on anyone, but he knows his stuff and somehow engages the whole class.
