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!

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.

omg, i dont even know where to start. did anyone actually learn anything in this class.. besides about his life?! i dont think we've done any work in this class and the years half over. We're units behind the other geo classes so how are we supposed to do the same exam?! quit talking about your life, and teach!

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.

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

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.

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!
