I truly love this man. Though he retired, he had made such an impact to my life. He makes chemistry enjoyable. His sarcastic character makes him an interesting man. He's an awesome surfer and he wants the best for all of his students :)

Mr. Cox was an incredible teacher. He was very knowledgeable on Biology, and he had this strange way of drilling things into your head.

Had him for 3 years in high school, and I loved him as a person and teacher. It's sad to know that LQ will be losing one of their greatest teachers OF ALL TIME. Mr. Cox, you're the best!

Mr. Cox is awesome. He's funny, energetic, and nice. He can be sarcastic and angry when you don't study, but it's because he wants you to put in effort for your own good. Great teacher! :D

He is my favorite (and also the best looking hehe) teacher in all my life. When he "yells" or whatever, I usually feel it's directed to the other people around me. Why? BECAUSE I READ! SO JUST READ!

He doesn't really "yell," he just speaks loudly and really firmly. He has high expectations, but if you have a question or don't understand something, ASK HIM. He can clear things up very easily.

Basically, do your homework (which is reading). Yes, he's funny when he's all sarcastic, and yes, he yells but it's really alright. I love the class because it's really challenging and it encourages you to be responsible.
