I had Mr. Humphrey in 1978. He was a really great teacher - I just wasn't a very good student. Congrats on your retirement Mr. Humphrey.
So awesome. I learned more from him than any other teacher in high school, and I'm not particularly interested in geography. And his funny, semi-off-topic stories are the best!
I cannot say enough good things about him, if I could have I would have given him all 20's what a great man
best teacher ever but after 39 years retiring this year, he knows how to teach so well and he makes the end of my dad great :)
Probably the best teacher I've had! I learned a ton in his class. He really does a good job at teaching the lesson clearly, and connect it to things out side of the class to make it more interesting.
Having Humphrey first thing in the morning was the perfect way to start my day :) Miss you Humphs!
He'd be a great teacher if he just LEFT ME ALONE! Seriously he has this tendency to pick on just ONE person per class. And WHY IS IT ME?!?!?!
I thought I would check this out to see if in fact, this was the same R. Humphrey that instructed me if 1975. I always remember him as a teacher who would treat everyone fairly. A kind individual with always a story to tell. Hats off to you Richard Humphrey. Its because of people like you, that we have stories to tell our children.

sure he talks a lot but hes an amazing teacher i always look foward to his class! mr humphry YOU ROCK DUDE!!!!
I must say he sticks out in my education career as one of the good ones. The perfect attitude an educator should have. I don't normally do posts (as I see them as a waste of time for the most part), but if someone is reading this and making an opion base don that, I would certainly like them to be acurrate. In short, This man is a wonderful teacher (even if I wasn't one of his favorites, he was one of mine). --- Graduate of 2001 - Jayce Cameron
My claps go out to mr H, man i havent known you for to long but i look foward to your class, i love your jokes and sence of humor,
Mr. Humphrey is hillarious. He was dispensing advice to the girls that the key to a man's heart is his stomach. Dammit, our secret's out! Rock On, Mr. Humphrey!
Oh Mr. Humphrey! What to say? An amazing teacher! Wish he could be one of my teachers this year. Its too bad he was away the last few months...I actually missed him! Probably one of the best teachers and by far my favourite! Loved the random side comments between him, my friend and I.
amazing teacher. truly an advocate for the well being of his students. always positive, always interesting and knows his material inside and out. strikes a perfect balance between focusing on learning and telling his students hilarious stories that also always seem to have a really important point. made me have faith in myself as an unsure young adult.
I took his class around 1984, and his influence on my learning was phenomenal then, and continues now. He treats students like adults, which is welcome in a time when educators can sometimes not make you think. Even if you disagree with him, remember that he is making you think!
Other teachers would benefit to take a page from Mr. Humphrey's book. He knows his stuff, he knows how to teach, he has a personality, and he has the life experience. My favourite teacher from high school, I wish university profs could be more like him. He taught us not just school knowledge but life skills. His influence will never be forgotten. If you don't like him, it's probably because you don't share the same personality or love of learning.
Ppl like to slam mr. humphrey, and i have no idea why. he has never done anything inappropriate and is a very good teacher. he know's wut he's talking about, mostly from experience and i'm glad he was my teacher for 3 years
He's dope, always entertaining, always in a good mood, and always willing to help ya out.
Before spending the rest of the review criticizing him, I'll acknowledge his knowledge of the subjects he teaches is thorough and current... when he's actually teaching. He could literally go an entire class talking about himself and other uninteresting topics. I can't believe I'd ever admit to wishing a teacher would spend more time teaching. Another teacher (who has taught at Glenlawn for a long time) admitted that he is notorious among the faculty for interacting inappropriately with female students.
He can be funny but he prefers girls in every way. He will seize any opportunity to prove that. Watch out - what the test is on is never what he says it will be on. Oh well he is sometimes cool but he gets too off topic and tells his "war stories" over and over(the same ones) but they are more interesting thatn the curriculum!
Great teacher, one of the best i've had. bad jokes but still funny at the same time. gets to distracted and offf topic a lot (wastes time so who can complain)
TPB rules and so does your class ROCK ON you and restall = best teachers of all time!!
Without a doubt, absolutely the best teacher I ever ran across beyond elementary. He stoked the fire of knowledge,and I always credit him for showing me how to study. His humor was great.
Thinks he's awesome, but is emotional still stuck in High School. Really immature, and the jokes get old about half-way through grade ten.
Humphrey is a very animated educator! He knows lots of stuff about.... a lot of things. U learn lots in class and it's fun... just don't let the fish bonker intimidate you ;)
i found he was a super nice guy but picked faves and gave them special treatment. always would go off on tangents and sometimes we'd take 2-3 classes to get through one topic.
he can teach. he may have done it a bunch of times, but hey. hes the best at it.
Class of '90. He's still my favourite teacher. Very personable, very encouraging, kept his material and issues current. A model for all teachers.
this guy is a great teacher easy to get along with funny and he teaches glad to have him as a teacher
Another bunch of Milk Toasts, Still going strong, Thanks Mr. Humphrey Class of 86
he acts truly in the interest of his students, he gives me hope that not everyone who goes through the public school system will come out warped.
