Wish he focused more on exam review instead of just sitting at his desk waiting for the day to be over.

Not a fan, at all. His class was easy enough, but he was more interested in hanging out than acting like a teacher.

My all time favourite teacher and possibly human being. Any one who believes otherwise has never met the man. Fantastic teacher who knows what he's doing! The world needs more Dave Semples.

Yeah, for sure he has great stories, does he ever tell the ones about his inappropriate relationships with underage girls during his first few years as a high school teacher? No? Surprising, huh.

Definitely knows how to impact the lives of his students, but not necessarily in a positive way. Needs to make the line between student and teacher more defined.

Made english interesting, and he assured that we would understand McBeth and Gatsby, as he frequently stopped to explain what was going on. Made you think and justifies the lessons
