Mr. Harman was my greatest 8th grade teacher ever and was pretty much the complete opposite of Mrs. Riggs. I remember out little conversations about COSMOS and am really disappointed that he retired.

Mr. Harman is the best teacher I have ever had by far. Although he goes off topic constantly with his life lectures, I still learned so much in his class, and his lectures are quite useful, unlike the stuff Ms. Riggs. Lucky to have had this teacher.

He's a great teacher. He's really smart and I thoroughly respect him. He goes off topic a lot with his life lessons, but that shows that he cares about the next generation. you will be picked on if you're not paying attention. DO NOT talk. Most importantly DO NOT FALL ASLEEP. He has an Airhorn and will blow it in your ear.

Likes to talk about life lessons for the first portion of class, but after he gets to the point, class goes pretty quickly for me :) Although sometimes I do find it hard to stay awake just because all he ever does is talk and talk and talk... he also calls on random people

As a high schooler who had Harman in 8th grade, he is the best 8th grade science teacher. Especially if you take biology honors in high school freshman year...you will find it so much easier if you took his class. His class was hard and he recommends few people to bio honors, but he's the kind of great teacher that you will come back and visit.

He's a freaking awesome science teacher.. you get so much ahead of the other classes but you learn so much more too... He enjoys lecturing a lot but it's rather intereting... lots of life lessons. =]
