High School Teacher
Holden's life begins to spiral out of control as he is expelled from Pency two weeks before Christmas for failing 4 of his 5 classes. In all actuallity his dislike for school is just a manifestation of his anger and failure to deal with the death of his brother Allie, but Holden's explanation with regard to why he dislikes school is that they are all "phonies".
