He was a very nice man but I thought he was terrible in all aspects of teaching. There was no structure to his methods (or lack thereof). He also tended to use hyperbole when calling the principal.

I'd use the word incompetant but it just doesn't describe the extent to which he deserves to be thrown out of the school. It's a discrace that he still teaches.
