Maybe some people find his classes boring, and I totally get it. To be honest, I do to. Thing is, I'm pretty sure it's partially the subject, not just the teacher. He's extremely knowledgable. He can basically answer any question with a detailed, clear response. Kinda temperamental, grades pretty harshly, but great teacher.

This guy is one of the best teachers in the school. The younger kids may disagree but if you get to know him he is a straight up savage.

This teacher is the best teacher that I have and a role model. He is the most knowledgeable person I know. This man cares so much for the planet that he sorts through the garbage bins and makes sure that everything is where it should be. I respect and admire him.

genius level IQ, so overqualified it hurts. Arrogant (understandably), fails to comprehend his students, but if you want to do a good job on a project or essay, his corrections and advice are unparalleled. Just be prepared to be bored out of your mind.

Probably the worst teacher I've ever had. It's not that he doesn't know what he is doing, he is a knowledgeable person but all he ever did in class was grammar and I really think there is more to a language class than that. Especially Latin. Extremely boring classes.

Kinda scared me when I saw him in a TOGA stuffing his face with garbage, but he is a really smart and cool guy. Store-bought food tastes better though...REALLY!
