Ross Durand is one of those teachers that you know you would be buds with when you graduate. He doesn't treat you like an idiot. He loves his subjects and will talk about them in depth to help you understand. If I could go back I would );

A relaxed yet very knowledgeable teacher. He likes to go on tangents about news but when he does get sidetracked, it's usually when he's trying to explain a concept by connecting it to the real world. To pass his tests its basically identify the concept and apply it to the real world. Of course, that means having a thorough understanding of the ideas and how they affect each other. Mr. Durand is very approachable though so talking about it with him is easy.

Basically, you enter his classroom for FACT and are greeted by the nicest man at Rancho. Being in his class, you would notice something off about his notes, like something does not "click". That's fine, you can just study. Oh wait, Durand doesn't recommend using the textbook. It's okay, his test should be easy, right? Nope. First, his tests are 6 questions, usually in paragraph form. Get the wording off and you'll get it wrong. Too long and detailed? Wrong. "At least there's a retake". Picky

Never uses the textbook. Confusing explanations. Hard tests that don't relate to notes.

He's a chill teacher. I once got a 39% and he passed me with a D. I'm not sure if he liked me or just didn't want me there for another year. Thanks Durand !
