Dowling was simply the best teacher- there exists no better, no teacher that came even close to being as much fun as he was. He taught us, talked to us outside of class, and always encouraged and supported us. It's a shame he retired, I was looking forward to taking more of his classes in the future.
I hate his class because he's a terrible teacher. He never admits that he's wrong and he doesn't like to be proven wrong. He's nice and all but sometimes he lashes out and yells. He gets off topic easily and gives pop quizzes that you can't finish. I would switch his class but it's too late.
he is really nice and kolegeble .... ask him anything and he will know the anser. also suprizenigly energetic dispite his age.
nice guy, knows his stuff, a real smart guy, but doesn't know how to teach it to students and has no control of his class
The way that he teaches... You donâ€™t learn very much in his class. And he spends half the class just ranting about the economy, or environmental issues, or even politics!
Mr. Dowling is the funnest teacher I've ever had. Seriously, you have to be a troll to flunk his class.
Mr. Dowling is very easy to get along with and "if" you ask for help he is willing to offer it! Easy class and fun (:
if you listen, you learn...sometimes. goes off topic very often. if you get him as a teacher, reading the textbook would probably be a good idea
I had Dennis has a teacher years ago at SCHS and his energy and interest in science ignited my lifelong interst in natural history. I would love to contact him again!
Dowling gets distracted easily and wants to teach in a college level but lacks the technique to enforce it. He's very enthused about his interests and teaching. Give him a chance, he's a very nice guy
he is a terrible teacher, but thats a good thing. Unless you really want to learn, take his class. its an easy A and he tells cool stories to waste a lot of time. I dont see why thats so bad...
dowling is the worst teacher anyone can have. he's so bad..no test, no nothing..we don't learn anything the whole year...if you get him IMMEDIANTLY switch out
worst teacher i've EVER had, if you can even call him a teacher. like seriously, he has no organization, no lectures, and NO MEMORY! probably won't even remember your name. take his class if you wanna hear about some random stories that have no connection or relevance to what he's supposed to be teaching. BOO!
add-on; he also constantly accuses innocent people of copying off of others on HW of copying off someone b/c i did a problem using a v-dgrm. and so did another
doesn't teach and, rants a lot about his MBR club, pressures ppl to become environmentalists; doesn't teach anything, if u don't care about edu take this class
Mr. Dowling is a really cool teacher, his stories are very intersting and although we get off track (MBR Biology) it's still great. =) Just learn from the book if you don't get what he's talking about
Very funny teacher. Gets off subject alot but all good. Never gives homework. Grades reports very easily.
Had him first semester this school year but dropped because I hated the people in the class and my grades were somewhat slipping which showed a sign. Funny guy
Mr. Dowling may go off subject at times and talk about Ulistac a lot but overall he's really nice to his students and his stories are always interesting to hear
Mr. Dowling isn't a very challenging teacher. He rarely assigns homework. The papers we had to write (Physiology) were, however, time-consuming but at the same time very educational. His tests are so-so.
