LOL. Mr. Montgomery and Mr. Baker both were darn good teachers, though! Schools need more strict teachers these days with the younger population becoming more and more disrespectful of their elders.

I never saw Montgomery or Baker come down on a kid who was listening to a lesson and participating in class. If you were on the receiving end of the wrath of either one, I imagine that the problem started with you. I've known Baker since I was a small child. He gave it to me in class one day pretty good because I was screwing around during group work just after I had admitted not finishing an assignment from the day previous. If you got yelled at, it was because he cared about you growing up and NOT becoming a meth head. I'm sure you'll say that it's natural for me to defend Baker because I knew him well before becoming his student. That's fair. However, I wasn't a fan of the whole Montgomery family for other reasons, but he was (is still?) a fine teacher who earned my gratitude and likely deserves yours. Now FREISER on the other hand....kidding; good guy too, if a bit abrasive when trying to make a point.:)

Perhaps this question could be reworded: Which teacher was unafraid to tell you that you were a screw-off in high school?

I would like to know who this RNH is above because they must have been teacher's pet. Mr. Baker was a 'jerk'! I tried to apply myself in his class but he did not like me from day one. I have moved away now but I have told all my family if something so\hould ever happed to me for them not to take me to Yeager Funeral Home because I don't want him even in the same building as me.

I found Mr. Baker a weak teacher. He was more concerned with trying portray himself as hip to the student body than inspiring kids to learn. He and Jerry Wellmam were a piece of work. I always felt attending Baker's English class was like being in the Larry Baker show. I hadn't thought much about him in the many years since I last saw him. He's probably still putting on a show. One of my best days in school was in 6th grade when myself and another classmate played Mr. John Montgomery a game of chess and we won. I was far from a teacher's pet, more like a nightmare but I liked Mr. Montgomery. Now the Meanest Teacher had to be the 4th Grade teacher at Ligonier Elem. Mrs. Sherman. I swear her obituary was the only one I have ever read (some 10 years after I left 4th grade) and it still gave me an involuntary response out loud. I said "Good".

I have the WORST teacher in the world (not really) but her name is Mrs. Girardeau, She is the worst, I'm in 7th in a private school, she's a Spanish teacher but she's not Spanish, she calls us out and she gets sooooo mad for NO reason. We are so quiet in her class, the only reason why we're quiet is because we're afraid of her and she gets mad because someone drops a pencil and she says "WHAT WAS THAT?!!!!!" And we're all like "it's a pencil" and then she's like "PICK IT UP RIGHT NOW!" she's 26 yrs old. And if some of us are talking and someone's asking her a question she's like "SORRY I CANT HEAR THE PERSON WHOS TALKING TO ME!" and her face gets soooooo hot chilli pepper red. She has a FAKE smile and we kids act more like an adult than she does!!!!!!!!. I'm soooo done with this Spanish teacher :(. She calls us children and we are teenagers, and she's like" ITS NOT HARD CHILDREN!".Today she abused my best friend, well, in lunch we can do whatever we want to except for throwing food and fighting, anyways my friend pre just threw a gushers pack to my friend Abby from another table, it wasn't even a Long throw, and I was sitting next to her and then after lunch while still in the lunch room, stupid mrs Girardeau came up to pre and yelled the hell out of herself and mrs girardeau Grabbed her arm soooo tight and yanked very hard and she said to Abby "I DONT WANT TO SEE YOU EVER THROW ANYTHING ACROSS THE ROOM, DO YOU HEAR ME?!!!!" And Abby said "Yeah totally, you don't have to yell at me" and mrs g said " DONT YOU EVER TALK BACK TO A TEACHER!!" We were going to tell the principal because Mrs. Girardeau left a huge bruise on her arm.

I think you two may be talking about two different Mr. Baker. I know both of them and while the one who is now Assistant Principal last time I checked at the high school can be a bit mean at times but come on he is a former Marine. The other one I only know thru Community Theatre
