Re: Any cool Teachers?
None of my cool teachers were easy classes.
Dr. Eberts. Other than being a world class teacher and professor with the awards, diploma and the reputation to prove it bur he is actually passionate about what he teaches. AP World History, AP European History, Holocaust, philosophy, anthropology, Duel Enrollment(College) American History, Duel Enrollment ancient civilizations 1 and 2. That is just his high school courses. He also teaches at a community college because it's close to his home. His class is mostly lectures like college classes. He doesn't care if you do the work/sleep/talk (as long as you're not talking loud enough to disrupt his lecture), it's your grade. If you don't care he doesn't care. If you did care about your grade, particularly in one of his college classes, he gave you props.
Dr. E is the definition of a cool old guy. He sleeps five hours a day. Smokes a cigarette before every class. Drinks insane amounts of coffee. He owns two houses. One is solely for his books. If he likes you, you might even get him to loan you a book. There is a good chance he knows everything. Considering how old he is and his eidetic memory it isn't surprising. I admit that I have a crush on him. I'm not the only one. By the end of this year I will have taken all of his classes except one, Duel Enrollment American History. I was fortunate enough to get a letter of recommendation from him for college.
Another teacher I have a bit of a crush on was Mr. Robinson. He teaches AP American History, sociology and world religions. Other than his amazing beard and long brown hair he was the most politically correct teddy bear hippie. He is also kind of a white guy that pretends to be black but it's okay because he grew up in a black neighborhood and he took African studies in college. During class he likes for classmates to discuss what we just learned. He goes around giving thumbs ups and having people do it back in agreement. We did deep breaths when things became "too heated". He was one of those teachers that didn't particularly care about your grade but cared if you learned something. That being said we had homework or "homefun" every day. It wasn't homework that could normally be finished the class before. At the very least he tried to make American History interesting.
Mr. Peppers is a short bearded angry man. He is also one of my favorite teachers. Very sarcastic and unwavering about the way he wanted things done, not many of my classmates liked him. Once you catch on that he is a deadpan snarker it's easy to get along with him. he He teaches English II, English II Honors and creative writing. Also is known around the school for his hot and twice pregnant wife who is also a teacher.
Mrs. Hamacheck was my freshman year English Honors teacher. She was a sweet old lady and we connected over our love of books. Sadly, she retired after my sophomore year because that year she decided to take on a regular class instead of honors. They pushed her over her limit. Her berserk button was when someone insulted homosexuals. They knew that and her asshole students that year kept pressing it along with being unfocused trolls.
Finally, Mr. Howsare was my Algebra II Honors and AP Economy teacher. We have the same taste in music, eighties music, and love Game of Thrones. He likes to use stories from his personal life as examples which tend to not have a point but are fun to watch because he makes ridiculous gestures and a booming voice. He is a large ham, which I adore. He is the kind of teacher that you either love or hate but that is more about the difficulty of the subjects that he teaches rather than himself.
