BEST TEACHER I EVER HAD!! I would take this class again. He actually really cares about his students and cares if you pass and about your health. His class room is really fun. From time to time he made popcorn. He is so invested his job and really does care. I'm going to miss him a lot next year. I was extremely lucky to got an amazing teacher. BEST TEACHER EVER!

He's one of my favorite teachers of all time. He's so funny and relates to his students like no other. He's so easy to confront if you need help or have any problem, and he's serious when you're serious with him. Only downside is that I felt we skimmed the last few chapters this year and most people were left not understanding the material. Thank you for such a great year Mr C.

Love Camiling!! One of the best teachers I have ever had. He's super funny and extremely nice and caring and I love when he has its inspirational speaches. He is one of the only teachers that actually teaches and even though Chem is hard he makes it easy to understand. He is super relatable and likes to talk with his students. Although the only downside was that we got stuck with a student teacher second semester and he really sucks. Now Camiling just sits on his computer while we suffer lol.

One of my favorite teachers i've ever had! He gets along so well with his students. He is great at making chemistry easy to understand. I had trouble understanding the book and at times didn't even read the chapters and i was able to understand almost everything with his lectures. He has tons of school spirit, and even hosts a wiener wednesday for teachers (though at times distracting when cooking hot dogs on a grill while lecturing) all in all, a great teacher.

Mr. Camiling is one of the kindest and most understanding teachers I have ever had. A great teacher academically as well. I couldn't focus much on Chemistry due to overload of AP classes but still managed to get an A with his helpfulness and innovative teaching style. In short, his class is a joy.

I really like Mr. Camiling as a teacher for Honors Chem. Just, I feel that he does not teach well enough for the second semester stuff. Otherwise, I love his jokes and smile at them.

Mr. Camiling is great. I had him for two years, for honors chemistry and Docents. He is really helpful and understanding as long as you are willing to put in the work. One of my favorite teachers ever

At the beginning of the year, you'll think this guy is the best. But after a while, all his jokes become annoying, and he gets real crabby about everything.
