Easily approachable if you have problems, sometimes unclear but usually will go over it again. Teaches everything you need to know about bio and then more about life. Great teacher.

Really made Biology interesting. I'm so glad I had him. Plus, he makes the class useful (if Biology isn't already useful enough) for the rest of your life.

tells a lot of great stories, gives tests later then they were expected, and teaches great. also, gives a ton of extra credit for non academic things.

Great at getting information across to his students. You'll learn a ton from him and view the world in a much different way. Does put his own opinion on issues sometimes, but otherwise is interesting, witty, and always there to help.

AWFUL teacher. He loses their work and gives them F's saying they never did it. Very unfair and babbles on about personal things when he should be teaching.

Really funny. Stories are...um..interesting. But we have to learn everything on our own because he barely teaches at all.

I have a son, and he was pretty much forced to be kicked out of this class because Mr. Wilms would not stop talking liberally about everything.

I do believe he is a good person, but he confused me so much. If nothing else--he plays a WICKED guitar. Rock on that one.

I love the way he teaches, he gives you the resources and puts you on the right track, but the effort is up to you. His sense of humor is phenominal, and he likes to go off on tangents(this keeps the class interesting and fresh). Great guy!

One of my favorites. Acc. Bio was one of my strongest and most enjoyed sciences. Loved all of his stories. All of you AP whiners, AP Envi is not an easy way out of an AP science credit, treat as if it were chemistry and dont be a disgrace to our school.

He is an environmental/engineering nerd, that much is obvious. He is also quite unconventional, and very intelligent. He goes off on tangents frequently, but its all to help us understand our world and the environment. I have learned much from him.
