Spad's honors physics class is probably one of my favorite science classes I've ever taken. I really enjoy the way he teaches, and I have learned a lot from him. His class is much less systematic than other science classes. He really encourages you to find your own conclusions and reasoning. He doesn't require you to write those dull in-depth lab reports that are way to systematic to be considered real science. He's very helpful and fun to talk to. His tests are pretty easy. Cool personality.

Spadafore has absolutely no knowledge about what he teaches. He gives out homework assignments and then immediately follows with tests that have material he never explained or covered. Spad is a pretty nice guy but a horrible teacher. Also, he has barely any points in the gradebook so if you fail one test, you're pretty much screwed.

Easily one of the poorest teachers on campus. He has a degree in biology but he's the Honors Physics teacher on campus. His course poorly encompasses what the subject is truly about. His tests are extremely easy if you know your stuff but many students struggle because of his inability to properly lecture and teach. On another scale, he is one of the most fun teachers on campus but taking the way he teachers into account, I would advise not to take his class unless you need to for college.

Many people don't think Spad is a good teacher because they don't do well in the class. But that isn't his fault. He is a cool, relaxed and a helpful teacher. You actually learn a lot from him and the class is interesting and easy. But most people take it to lightly and don't pay attention. If you even just listen while he talks you can easily get an A. The class is easy with little work. Spad roc

His class is hard and you actually have to work at it. But that means you learn more. He is a great teacher and has his own thoughts on everything. You really learn alot.

have a lot of respect for him. not many teachers will still be nice to you if you are failing their class. be careful, he will only help you if you ask specifically

Spad has a tough class but he's a good teacher. Kids either like him or hate him. As long as you pay attention and do your board questions, you'll do fine!

Spad is definately the man, i mean, he can talk about pretty much anything and relate it to science, i mean, sure he might talk about other things sometimes, but in my opinion to pitch to the middle is a great teaching method, keep it up spaddy!

Dave is a stand-up citizen, but he is sitting down most of the time. Paradoxical, isn't it? Yes, Dave rocks. Anyone who sponsors the Idea Club is a good man in my book.

He's one of the most confusing teachers but he truley tries to be friends with all his past students. No matter how hard of a time they gave him in class. That takes some guts.
