Went into his geography class loving the subject and as an A student. Came out hating it. He had his favourites. If you weren't one of them you were an irritant to him in the class, ignored your questions and a nuisance. If you loved him you were one of his favourites. A useless teacher evacuate of his behaviour and ignorance
