Dr jam does not teach and engages in confusing side conversations. All he does is talk about what's on the board and makes you so bored and so confused you want to cry. The class tries so hard to concentrate but it's impossible because of the extreme tangents we go off on. The material is heavy and not well explained and when you ask for help he just repeats himself without really answering you. The only kids who get anything are the ones that have prior knowledge.

I had for my senior year in Horticulture. Honestly, he is a great guy and all but he does not teach the material so when the time for the exam comes, we do not know anything because he barely taught and I remember him clearly.

Dr. Jam is awesome, but not too great of a teacher. He's the type to give you the answers but not explain how you got it. The class was out of control when I had him. The quizzes were really hard too.

Super great guy. He's an AWFUL teacher though. I'm currently reviewing for the regents and A LOT of things we should know for it were never covered in class which makes more work for us, he CANNOT control his classes as well. My class is out of control and he lets them do whatever they want, they yell and talk during exams, they blast music while doing labs,

Dr. Jam is awesomee! one of the nicest, funniest teachers ever but prepare to be confused and bored in his class. He gets distracted easily and his lessons go on and on. Oh and he puts random things on quizzes.but lots of labs for good grading!

Very cool guy, very chill for the most part...One of his flaws could be putting material on tests we dont know and getting a new lab every day, but he is a good teacher and knows what he is talking about...he goes by many nicknames...long live JAMDADDY!
