03/28/12 - Okay I don't even know where to start... SC's Science Department needs help. And A LOT of it... I would really appreciate if there was a SINGLE chemistry teacher at SC that was even REMOTELY competent. Leal does NOTHING. He sits there in his little chair and watches our confused and blank looks as we copy down the notes that he puts up. There are NO explanations and students are expected to teach themselves. Any knowledge that a student obtains from his class is from learning by themselves. Show More Show Less

12/07/11 - Google was the reason I passed this class. Basically had to teach myself how to do things. Make sure you get in a group with "smart" people when you do your labs, otherwise you're screwed. Show More Show Less

06/19/10 - 200 characters to talk about his flaws?! Clearly not enough. But to sum it up. Teaches A LOT of irrelevant stuff. Then when district final comes around we're screwed. I've never been so screwed over. Show More Show Less
