* {{Jerkass}}: He's an investment banker, doing community work to lessen his sentence, so it's a given. Then comes his utter disrespect to being a teacher and absolute lack of empathy toward students, as he considers the whole thing just a temporar stop and minor setback in his banking career.
* JerkassHasAPoint: Let's not forget his quasi-RousingSpeech to students how Math is one of the few ways to avoid ending up in [=McDonald=]'s. But most importantly - the confrontation with Gruber about the way he handles his Math classes. Pretending his students don't come from bad neighbourhood won't suddenly rewrite the reality, while basing all the Math exercises on BlackComedy and "pimp accounting" at least keeps them really interested and focused on the class.
