He's a very rude and unpleasant person. He likes to think himself above everyone else in the school. He gives these daily quizzes based on trivial details from the textbook that aren't important, and he always gets confused if he did something with us before or not, so we end up repeating material. If you don't do your notes in the MOST meticulous manner, he'll give you maybe 10% off, even though they're your notes, not his. If you're in his class, I'm sorry and I'm praying for you.

Very knowledgeable and gives excellent lectures. He is helpful sometimes. However he missed a lot if days and he is very strict. Which isn't necessarily a bad thing, but he thinks he owns the school and everyone is beneath him. As a result even though he is an excellent teacher he is basically Stalin's reincarnation.

He suffers from schizophrenia, delusions of grandeur. Thinks he is a genius and superior to every teacher in the school and thinks every student must obey him as if he's the emperor of the school.

There is no doubt that this man has some serious issues. He stresses the importance of punctuality and attendance, which is not necessarily a bad thing. However, bullying children and intimidating administration is not acceptable. Picking favourites is also not acceptable. Many high school kids are difficult and disrespectful, but his attitude towards dealing with it is not ok. He is a nice and pleasant man but only if he likes you.

Whether you like his personality or not, you can guarantee that you'll learn from his class. Definitely the most knowledgeable teacher i've ever had and the only students I know who dislike him are the students who don't put the effort. If you show him you care and show up on time, he'll help you out as much as he can in the class

Mr Little is a bully. There are so many reasons to back up my statement. He is way too strict on his students and doesn't understand that he cannot treat people the way he treats his students. He should be fired for his abusive behavior.

Little does not care for a single one of his students and treats them like pests. Daily quizzes are trivial, are usually about tiny details you'd forget in a second. Unreasonable and uncaring, authoritarian and will not listen to reason (pride).

Mr Little is the kind of teacher everyone needs. Caring and helpful, he is not overly strict at all. In fact his approach to attendance and other responsibilities is a very good prep for being an adult and not sucking at it. He has my utmost respect.

This man needs a psychoanalysis and shouldn't be permitted anywhere near students. Abusive, sad man who takes his anger out on his students with his authoritarian methods of teaching and obsession over the attendance of students. He claims that he checks the attendance record for ALL your classes and gives you detentions if he finds you were skipping ANY of them. Also slams the door shut in the faces of his students even if they're a minute late. He's not well mentally.

Mr. Little is definitely one of the most knowledgable, and inspiring teachers I have ever had. He is extremely helpful, and has taught me a lot. His teaching method is interesting, captivating and very educational. I have learned so much in his class. However, his class is not easy at all. Most people that dislike Mr. Little only do so because of their bad grades, which were caused by their lack of work and effort. Do all of the work, and do well in his class. Simple.

Anyone who goes to the school can agree Mr. Little is the toughest teacher there, but that's not a bad thing. He is one of the smartest people you will ever meet, that will actually help you and teach you a lot. Do your work, and don't be late! Don't let the lazy people discourage you, Mr. Little is the best teacher you will have!

A self-absorbed, limited man. Lots of pointless notes, and 'work periods'. If you like to listen to someone rant on for 95 minutes straight, with little to none of actual reference to the topic of study-this class is for you!Read a newspaper and spew out popular 'anti-establishment' opinions, and you'll pass.
