best eng teacher ive ever had. hes super engaging and i love that he doesnt follow a strict plan. he just goes with the flow and he makes class so interesting each and every day. i love him. hes so chill and funny too... i feel like english and drama are his calling. instead of having a set of chapters we have to read per day and just answering questions, well have a lot of class discussions that help A LOT. i loved this class, super relaxing, all you have to do is bring a book and your insight.

He really knows his stuff - he can literally give you an analysis of something on the spot if you ask. He is super creative with his assignments, and doesn't go by a schedule which you may or may not like. Like he will come up with assignments and due dates on the spot, things like that. You can tell he is really passionate about literature, and he actually makes me interested in the topics we learn about. He is super friendly too. If you do your work and pay attention, you can get a good mark.

He's a nice teacher and all for english, but he lacks a skill they try to drill into our heads at school: time management. But all in all, he's a good guy.
