Mr. Powers is in my opinion the best teacher at Cave Spring High School he teaches his classes like a college course when you need help you have to come to him, and if you ask a dumb question he will make you look foolish because he wants to make you think and find the solution for yourself or at least to get a better question and therefore closer to the goal. He will help you when you need however he won't solve the problem for you this is high school however his class is great prep for college
He uses real world examples when he teaches and stories that are really funny. He is very sarcastic which can sometimes be too much and get annoying. He is very smart, but does not try to come help you with work. usually you will have to come to him in order for assistance.
Very witty and intelligent
Mr. Powers was rude and condescending to me, the parent. Obviously , he is brilliant, but that is it in my opinion. Reminded me of Sheldon Cooper on The Big Bang Theory, smart but lacking substance in personality. My child had him a year ago. I tried talking to him numerous times about my concerns and he blew me off. He had one job, to educate. He failed. Worried my other child will get him. I know several kids hated hearing how stupid another class was. That is unprofessional and immature.
Powers is a great teacher. He is hilarious and engaging, which is something someone who isn't in love with math needs. He made the material so easy to understand. I learned a lot from him. He had faith in me in that class when I was certain I'd fail.
He's obviously a mathematical genius, and witty, too, but if you're not the top of the class, or academic team, there seems to be a lack of patience for you. He's not attentive enough to his students' needs, especially because of the fact the majority of his students will take his class as underclassmen and need a little help.
Very mysterious...in a cool way. One of my favorite teachers. He's really smart too.
Had Mr Powers in 2000, by far the best teacher I have ever had the pleasure of learning from, and the only one to leave a lasting impression.
powers is hilarious...he makes u sound stupid when u talk to him but only kiddingly...nd he always only says good things behind students' backs...makes the class fun!!
Knows his stuff but doesn't make an effort to help struggling students. Might be the worst teacher at CS due to his attitude.
Actually made math fun.Great guy w/good sense of humor. Treated you like an equal.
mr. powers is a great guy and a fun teacher. he treats his kids like actual people, instead of mindless peons.
Yeah, he's funny sometimes. But he also thinks he's the coolest man to ever walk through the halls of CS, and talks down to students, and makes assumptions.
he plays civ 3 all the... just kidding, not another one of those... he's effective and teaches us what we need to know even though it's useless.
Mr. Powers likes to play civ 3 all the time, other than that he is pretty easy to get along with.
Mr. P is pretty cool, he knows how to communicate with us, and knows a lot about a lot of stuff.
Mr. Powers plays Civilization 3 the whole time he is not teaching. No other teacher can be like Mr. Powers.
