People just think the class is hard because it's the first class you aren't given the test answers to before an exam. People expect to do well by not even trying to do the homework (which are very helpful for his tests). Chemistry isn't as easy as biology, you have to do more than just memorize facts. I thought he was a great teacher that simplified everything in easy-to-understand methods. People who whine to their parents just don't know how in put in effort or think scientifically.

Okay so he is a great guy he's very nice and means well. His teaching is awful. He doesn't explain anything and his tests have only little to do with his lessons and notes. We never use the book and he expects his students to know what's in it. He is very smart but as a student that averages an A- through out biology it is hard to maintain a C in his class even though completing every assignment.

Ugh. He definitely knows what he's doing, but he clearly thinks he has better things to do than be a high school chem teacher. He treats everyone like AP students even if they are only in honors, and expects everyone to perform at the same level. He goes through lessons and record pace and I sometimes get lost and can't catch up no matter what I do. He is the hardest grader you will ever have and has no mercy on anyone.

He's is a nice guy. With that said, he is an awful teacher. I'm an honors student. My grades typically don't fall below a B+ but I ended up with a C in hnrs chem, & i struggled to get it. The vast majority of the class agrees that he didn't do enough to teach us & that his tests were ridiculously difficult. He blames parent phone calls on his very regular habit of forgetting to grade/print-out things, & it's no wonder why parents are calling. Expect to drop at least a full letter grade.

He is the worst teacher i have EVER had at freehold township. Yeah he's a nice guy and attempts to make bad jokes but he is a horrible teacher. When you ask him for help after class, he belittles you

It's not an easy class, but I really like Hinds. He's a little quirky, which makes it somewhat interesting. But Chemistry can only be so interesting...

Cool guy, I ask him for life advice. He told me to quit my job which I very happily did. He's not a great teacher though, especially in honors chem. You're paid to teach don't make me learn by myself.

A very very nice guy. Not the best teacher in the world, and his Honors Chem tests and quizzes are impossibly hard.

Mr Hinds is a bore. He's a nice guy and he really inspires me to try to like chemistry, but he's a lot like that kid in class who sits in the front row with a pocket protector who beats himself up when he misses a sigfig.

Craig Hinds is the type of guy you want to hate because his class is so impossibly hard, but you can't hate because he's one of the most hysterical people on the face of the planet
