I do not recommend this teacher at all. He is sexist, racist, and misogynistic. He bases the majority of his lessons around religion or some other opinion or belief, all of which makes me and my peers uncomfortable, to the extent of some of us actually leaving class. He doesn't mark fairly, and half of the class (who I know did well last year, including myself) are all getting much lower marks, and even failing the class. The principle has talked to him and he still hasn't changed.
He is racist, offensive towards other religions, and views atheists as lower than people who believe in a god. I hate this teacher so much and I'm so sorry if you ever have him for a teacher.
He is very derogatory about other peoples religions if they are not the same as his own (specifically athiests) and talks far too much about things that make people uncomfortable. He recently stated some racist comments towards a certain race/religion, and made sexist remarks about the "it girls" of the past decades. I do not recommend him, he is a very hard teacher to be around and I do not enjoy his class whatsoever.
He called Marilyn Monroe fat and said women will be weak in the future because Muslims will take over the world and they listen to their husband. He literally has no chill.
Mr. Sawyer can be very misogynistic, racist and sexist and pushes religous view on students. run for the hills
Pushes his religion on students which makes me very uncomftorable as I am not religious. He marks cruelly and doesn't communicate with students at all. My 10 year old sister is so reluctant to have him as her teacher she contemplates going to another high school. AWFUL TEACHER
Made English really fun; I actually felt like I was learning. I do not mind his assignments, and I find most of them to be fair. Most of the people who don't like him are the people who don't like work. You can say the same negative things about any teacher, though when it comes down to it a lot of students need to realize is it the teacher, or is it you and your overall negative outlook on school? Kind of disappointing to see negative reviews for such a good teacher, I give him a thumbs-up.
personally, I didn't like him. English isn't my favourite class but he made it so much worse with all his poetry! and his assignments are nothing more than plain stupid.
Mr. Sawyer at least knows what he's talking about, unlike other English teachers. Mr. Sawyer, you HAVE to raise your voice though, at least tell the kids you want to help them, not through words, but through actions. Please.
