Very Helpful when needed. You basically come to class if you want and if you don't he doesn't say anything, but just make sure you hand in your essays on time

Mr. Desmond was a really great english teacher. You write an essay once a week and he'll help you as much as you want. The final paper at the end is an I-search and is a big part of your grade so he judges that pretty harshly. Don't expect an A. Show up when you need to get work done and you don't really need to be there if you have finished.

VERY BORING. His voice put me to sleep. He is a very hard grader and his essays made no sense. I took the film and lit class he would show the movie a week before assigning the essay and he expected specfic scenes I had to rent all the movies just do to the essays. Worse teacher I have ever had.

Totally boring, monotone voice, taught us nothing. Essays were fairly easy, with the exception of his "I-Search paper", which was a long, tedious, pointless assignment.

He was alright. you had to work hard for good grades, and there was a lot of work on the final paper. he could be boring (mono-tone) and unclear at times

This was your basic English class. I put in a lot of effort, and thought that I produced pretty good work and I got a C. Most of my papers were B's. I think he might be ****.

I KNEW I WASNT THE ONLY ONE. Shes impossible to understand, seriously when she reads the words seemlessly blend into each other. Impossible grader and inconsiderate. Took my years of successful highschool writting and tried to tell me my ways are wrong,BS
