She teaches our class the way we understand it and is funny at the same time. She explains things thoroughly and lets us do our own things.

— Student

He is the best teacher I’ve ever had. Not only does he just teach what is required, but he goes above and beyond. He cares about every student in and out of school. He has helped me so much. He makes learning so much fun. He is such a funny person, and I think it’s more fun to learn when your teacher really enjoys it.
