The fact of the matter is (you'll get it eventually) he is a great teacher. Very knowledgeable and entertaining. Makes learning about world history very fun. I recommend taking his interdisciplinary class. Lyons and Richardson together make a great combo of learning and enjoyment. Best class and best teachers at Kennedy.
P.S. Class is difficult in the beginning, but once you get a hang of things it's easy sailing.
Mr. Lyons was the best teacher I had at Kennedy. I graduated in 2010 and took two of Mr. Lyons courses during my time at JFK. Mr. Lyons pushed me further than I thought I could go but he believed in me every step of the way. Mr. Lyons did not sugar coat things, he wanted us to be prepared for the world we would soon be entering. He challenged our beliefs and did not settle for mediocrity. Mr. Lyons not only prepared me to succeed in college, but he made me a better person.
Lyons was the best teacher at Kennedy. Everything he did/made us do had a purpose. He made everything applicable to real life. A bit of a cynic, he showed us how the world really works.
Greatest teacher I've ever had. Difficult but not a heavy workload, you'll learn tons of stuff for college and life in general.
the best teacher at kennedy, he actually teaches and doesnt give us any busywork. treats us like adults and makes us think.
Lyons is the hardest and the best pre-college teacher I have ever had. His tests are amazingly hard. He also has the best laugh. You can hear it anywhere.
Another outstanding teacher at this school. His teaching methods are sound and meaningful.
this guy is great- make sure you dont slack off or you will be called on repeatedly until you get an answer right!
