He makes you read for the whole class, so if you finish the occasional work it's easy to get an A. He never gets mad and is pretty carefree.

Funny how you people say he talks a lot. I had him in grade 9 many years ago. When there was a student teacher, he wouldn't talk at all, just sit there and work

The only people who don't like Terpening are slackers. That's because he doesn't like slackers. Try your best and be willing to learn.
