Well, there is this teacher at my school named Mr. C. He's the desktop publishing teacher. For those of you that don't know, desktop publishing is a class based around computer software and publishing stuff. Well, anyway, he looks just like an ordinary teacher, glasses, short grey hair, about 50, etc, but he's really probably the coolest teacher I've ever had.

First of all, he has a great taste in music. In the hallways sometimes we talk about music. He loves bands I like, like AC/DC, Pink Floyd, Rush, GNR, you name it. He also likes Van Halen, Metallica, Triumph, and some other ones. Second of all, he's just overall awesome. He teaches our class great, and is always willing to help someone out. Thirdly, he is a SWEET guitar player. He already played his guitar in class twice this year, once maybe a month ago and one today. He played an acoustic the first time, and an electric the second time. The acoustic, dang it was pretty nice, and he wired it up to his speakers since it had an electric capability, had one of those things pros use on the stage so you don't need a cable (I don't know what it's called) and walked around the room playing.

Even more impressive was his electric guitar playing. After the test today, he wired it up the same way he did with the acoustic and played everything from the blues to heavy metal. I recognized some AC/DC, Van Halen, and Metallica in the mix, and maybe one Black Sabbath song. His guitar you ask? Well, I couldn't really recognize it, but I noticed that the headstock at two fancy words in cursive, it was black with a rosewood fretboard, and had two humbuckers.

Oh yeah, and I noticed today that he had a tattoo on his right arm covered by a sleeve. Weird how I never noticed that.

I had a teacher freshman year who made my freshman year perfect.

He called my friend gay.
He told a girl for extra credit she had to do a back flip off the wall in her underwear.
He wouldn't give us grades on our work, he gave us grades on if he liked our personalities.

He was amazing.

OK, so I think I know what TS is talking about;

The "thing that pros use instead of a cable" is either a mini amp (but pros really dont use those) or a wireless system.

And the guitar he had was probably a BC Rich since you said it had two words spelled in cursive.

My english teacher is pretty cool....one day he was wearing a black label society shirt, and I was like "Cool, I went to see them a couple weeks ago", and he said he went to the show too. I wanna be a teacher, just so I could be the cool metalhead teacher that isn't a douche, unlike all the other teachers. lol
#11
My old english teacher Mr Brunning was awesome. He has 3 cds out and is working on a forth. He plays amazing acoustic guitar and he came to class baked like 5 times.
#12
My resistant materials teacher's the best, he gets on with everyone, he started talking to me about Vai and Zappa and he's getting me some copied CDs his brother in law has (who caught alice coopers cane one time) which is full of Vai, Zappa, Led Zep, Hendrix, all that sort of stuff, he also made his own bass back in the day when he was in his band "Asparagus 7" there were 3 members though. . this confused me.
My science teachers an okay guy out of lesson too but in lesson he's all about the teaching.
#13
My geology teacher.

Just one example from today.

Teacher: "Okay you have enough space in your workbooks to draw the graph"
Female student: "How big?"
Teacher: "I don't think i can tell you that!"

sexual innuendo's ftw!

probably had to be there though.
#14
My art teacher is just insane. He's always friendly with everyone and he's obssessed with Christmas and he sings in class and stuff... He's not exactly awesome, but he's really funny. He tells these stories about when he was younger, like once he was going to take a girl out on a date but he couldn't find her house... haha
Some kids make fun of him but he makes fun of them back too so its cool
Hes awesome becuase he is so weird.
#15
i had this extremely cool teacher who noticed me quoting Beatles to my step-bro jokingly in class (earlier that year i had preformed "Polly" in front of the skool of 600 and won the student body president election) and he says "Baron, would you like me to tell you some bands i think youd like?"

"yeah! sure"

so he literally stops class and spends 45 mins going over bands/albums he thought id enjoy..

i ended up going home and DLin some...


im pretty sure he won teacher of the year... Trey Harrison.. maybe it was a nomination.. i remember the assembly

A Mr. Coe in 8th was pretty cool. He and another teacher smoked J's in the parking lot between classes.

1) Yup, a wireless system.

2) Nope, definately not a BC Rich. It had a Strat like body and I remember I didn't recognize the brand name.

my english teacher is pretty cool.

there is this annoying kid who NOBODY likes, and so he talks to all the teachers. once, at the end of class we had free time to just talk or read or whatever. so the kid gets up to talk to the teacher. he's talking and you can TELL she doesn't give a rat's ass what he is saying. then, she just scut him off IN THE MIDDLE OF A SENTENE and told him to go sit down. he tried to argue, but she was just like "CODY! i don't care! go sit down!"

it was awesome.

My 8th grade english teacher was gone for a few days once and we had a sub named Ms. Buffalo. She looked like one. I purposely said her name to her incessantly (ex. Ms. Buffalo can I get a drink Ms. Buffalo? Please Ms. Buffalo)

My science teacher in 9th grade made me a bet I wouldn't slap a chicks ass while bent over at the water fountain. None of that "accident crap" as he said, a full on slap in plain view. And i had to stand there while she turned around and realized who it was.

I won that bet.
the ladies love when i gyrate my ass in front of a graveyard

i had a geometry teacher last year who is so down to earth.
you can literally talk to her like a true friend, on serious and nonsense matters.
and she'll talk to you like she's your best friend since childhood.

she also jokes alot, which is why some of the other teachers never take her seriously.
one time when i had to do something for her for a club, i was suppose to clean her room.
but all she did was sign the papers as if i did the work and told me "mark just study for the math test, i'll fill in this crap for you."

so i did study for my math test, and when i looked at the "comments" she wrote as i "cleaned her room", it said "GREAT MOTIVATION AND FULL OF ENERGY!"
but she said, "yeah right, your full of **** mark" hahah.

i had to do the same thing twice and all she did was sign the papers and i didn't do a thing.
her next comments included "broom was taller than him" and "could not reach the top part of board"

she cool

My Geometry teacher is a crazy-ass dude from India who also lived in England for a few years. Can you imagine this guy's accent, its pretty out there. He's really strict, but he's a standup comedian so he gets funny at times. Our class is really goofy so when he plays along its great. He doesn't sound that awesome, but he is.
Listen to my songs, but only if you are prepared for the greatest experience of your life .

my chemistry mr mar teacher plays guitar and is pretty cool.
so is mr addison, the schools drafting teacher, who is the best lead guitarist for blues i have ever seen (also said by my info tech teacher mr boldt and guitar teacher mr dobrovolny) the drafting teacher also does the guitar club, whoch gives you the chance to make your own guitar that is customized the way you want (as long as you have the money). also mr boldt who is also a guitar teacher is very cool and pretty slack. and last but not least mr speilchin, whos major is guitar (jazz i think) he knows everything about theory and is a freaking awsome guitarist. i havent even seen his capabilities but judging from what i have seen , he is the best guitarist i know.

sorry for the wall of text. to lazy to fix it up though

There's a sub and we all call him chief. He was in the military for 30 years and has been in four wars. He's the funniest guy you'll ever meet. He always says that if you do drugs he will personally hunt you down and kill you(which is cool to me cause I'm the same way with friends and stuff) and he's funny as hell. I'm not even going to attempt telling stories cause I would entirely butcher the hell out of them.

At my school, theres this wicked gnarly ex-Marine gym teacher. He's short and bald but his arms are so buff he practically cant touch his face. He has a very peculiar vocabulary. It's due to him that half of the school knows the word "bodacious" and he is constantly telling everyone to "Get fired up, brother!". He's pretty much the man.

And then there's my awesome American History teacher. Basically everyone in the school likes him, he's in a sweet band, and he makes fun of everyone all the time. Me and him always just end up talking about music in the middle of class. Like last year, we spent 10 minutes right in the middle of class discussing why Appetite for Destruction was one of the greatest debut albums ever.
#26
My English teacher.

He wastes massive amounts of the period screwing around sometimes, and he is funny. He put on slipknot during class the other day. Not the guy you would expet to listen to metal, not just slipknot, I know I will get flamed for saying slipknot is metal, so I am saying he listens to other metal.
#27
i alco have just realized that an english teacher in my school is awsome (doesnt play guitar so i didnt mentaion him before) but he admitted to smoking weed to the class. told us his expieriences. it was pretty cool. wont mentaion his name just in case a freak random chain of events leads him to be fired.

My science teacher, Mr. Debruyker. He plays Bloons during our labs and stuff, and makes me and my friends help him on hard levels. During class we'd be working on something, and he'd have this intense look on his face, and we would always yell, Mr. D, the deans at the door!, and he would jolt up straight and start clicking out all of his windows. One of the girls in the class thought he was looking at pornos because he got rid of the windows when she asked him a question once.

I swear I have some of the coolest teachers ever at my school.

My 7th grade Social Studies teacher was awesome. At the beginning of class, we'd start on a lesson but end up arguing and debating about random nonsense for the rest of the period. You see, there was like, a select four or five students in the class (me included) who would constantly challenge him on his every word so we'd start these huge debates where at the end, no one knew where we'd started. I was almost afraid to ask him to fill out a recomendation form for me since he is the slobbiest teacher I've seen but did anyways because I knew he'd never expect it.

There's also a Science teacher who plays music on his computer during study hall and lets kids listen to their iPods. Seriously the most laid-back teacher ever. Too bad I don't have him for any classes though. I only know him because he's the advisor or something for our school's science fair.

And my Math teacher is pretty cool too. He has this long hair he puts in a ponytail and he's also the most sarcastic guy ever. He picks on all of us "outspoken" students and jokes around all the time. He's pretty awesome at chess too.

Best teacher I ever had was a 23 year old student teacher. I tell ya, did our jawsa dropped when we walked into Enlgish class that day. Hell, I even added her on myspace and talk to her once in a while, just because she's one of the awesomest teachers. She's also the only reason I didn't fail english that year :phew:

My other favorites are my band teachers, and both my history teachers so far.

We have a dude that teaches mass communications who would get off topic for the whole class time and swears in class all the time. And I think he has tried almsot every drug that he could possibly get his hands on but hates them now. He has also been Buddhist and Indian religions during his lifetime and now his kids are mormon. weirdest dude ever.

Another mutual teacher of Ralbert's and mine was Michael Penta. He was our instructor for our "Game Makers" class at Design Camp '07. We always had awesome discussions about everything, video games, Pink Floyd, Weird Al, even the 80's. And he was helpful about learning to program. It rocked.
