I had Mr. Berry for pre-calculus at Fairfax HS in 75/76. He literally turned my life around. I was strung out on drugs, running with a bad crowd, and getting a lot of Ds and Fs in courses. Mr. Berry took me under his wing, taught me a love of math and gave me the confidence I had never had. He was very patient with me. I now have a BS & MS in Electrical Engineering and own a company where many of us make a comfortable living solving complex word problems with computers. Thanks Mr. Berry!
Jerry Berry Y U NO PERMANENT TEACHER QQ BUt really, he is the best. He is helpful and he knows what he's talking about. Heck, he wrote the compsci packet...
HE IS THE BEST TEACHER EVER. He helped me so much in computer science whenever he was subbing for my class. I learned way more than I ever did with my regular computer science teacher.
THE. BEST. TEACHER. EVER. if you get him for sub, start cheering cuz your life just got better by the millions
He is probably the best computer science and math teacher to ever enter TJ. If you get him as a sub then, you might learn more than when your teacher was there. If you don't understand something, ask him. He actually helps you one on one if you need it. He knows everything in this subject area.
You could not possibly ask for a better math teacher than Mr. Berry. Very easy, very helpful, and very nice.
Gerry Berry (yes, with a G) IS compsci. He subbed my math class one time and you could tell he knew more about compsci than anyone in the room. and he was teaching math. Absolute beast. He deserves all 6s.
dood, in one dAY OF compsci, i learned more from him than webb in a year
oh my god, the best teacher ever. i learned more from him in a day than i learned in a month.
well everyone else is giving him 555 so I guess I will too. WOOO GO JERRY
JERRY BERRY!! The name says it all, best teacher for math and compsci EVER! actually understands and will explain, amazing teacher
Mr. Berry was is a great person. He wasn't that great of a teacher but that didn't matter, at least for Precalc., because the course is usually taught with another teacher who is very good.
You can't go wrong with Jerry Berry. Pretty much the nicest guy ever.
jerry berry? never knew that. anyway... he's aesomely awesome
Mr. Berry is so understanding and he cares about his students. He's willing to help you if you don't get something. No one is EVER afraid of asking him questions. GET HIM FOR COMP SCI!!!!!!!!!!!
I had Mr. Berry for summer CS, he's one of the best teachers i've ever had. His class seems to move at a slow pace, but that way you learn everything and more with minimal effort.
Nicest person in the history of the world, will sit and help you with something untill you understand it completely
What matters aside from the fact that he gives out bags of extra credit, will help you solve problems on tests, and will explain anything until the entire class understands? Not much.
Mr. Berry is the greatest teacher ever. Nicest guy, is happy to help always
i have him for CS and hes really nice and very patient
Nicest man I've ever met. In Comp Sci, you don't learn much in the classroom, but he'll help you if you have problems; great 1on1.
I love Mr. Berry! He was the only reason that I got an A in precalc. Honestly the nicest and most considerate teacher you will ever have. Very good at explaining things as well.
he's pretty awesome, intro cs was the easiest class i've ever had, i think i finished with a final grade over 100% and i dont know anything about computers. also, he has the coolest name ever.
Mr. Berry is the coolest man of all time. He helped me get into pre-calculus after I switched into TJ my sophmore year, and always asks how things are going. Best teacher EVER.
I had him for Intro CS. He's extremely nice and will let you code what you want if you're good. The more lenient side of Berry/Drobnis. He does mind talking in class, though he doesn't have a mean side to him. His teaching moves very slowly, so no one listens in class. But if you don't understand something, he will explain it to you until you get it.
nicest math teacher ever! Very cool guy, help out everyone, and makes sure that everyone understands the material before moving on. What a great guy!
Can explain things every easily and quickly. Way too nice to be a teacher at a high school. But knows his stuff, so we should keep him.
How awesome is it when your teacher notices u doing hw from another class, but doesn't care AT ALL. COOOOOOLEEEEESSSTT and NICEEEESSSSTTTT guy ever
Probably the nicest teacher I've ever had. He is always willing to help you.
i mean, he's easy... but i personally didn't like him.
Awesome teacher, he gets kind of annoyed if he catches you asleep in class, but not mad. THis guy cannot get mad. He is cool and will help you with all of the CS labs.
He's just so nice! I wish that all my teachers were like him, if they were then I would go to school even if I was sick because he makes things just so fun and he's never been mean to anyone and he's just the biggest sweetie pie of a teacher I've ever had
he is the nicest dude ever, no doubt. You think you're nice, you're wrong cuz you dont even compare to Mr. Berry. Great teacher too.
my berry is awesome!!! he always makes sure you understnad everything, and cares so much about what you do outside of class.
Mr. Berry's the coolest! He always helps you in Comp Sci and tells you if you're doing something wrong. :)
Mr. Berry rocks! Took summer comp sci, hope i get him for PreCalc!
I was having a really bad year during his class... he always made me feel better though - then i could learn instead of being sad/stressed!!!Most helpful person
The nicest man in the world. If everyone were Mr. Berry, the world would be a better place.
i love mr berry! had him for summer comp sci and is hands down the best teacher at tj i have had yet. try to switch into his class
awesome teacher. will always help you if you need it, and is quite possibly the nicest guy ever.
Mr Berry is hands down the nicest most caring man on the entire Earth. I cant even begin to explain how much i love him. MR BERRY ROCKS! hes an angel :D
I LOVE MR BERRY! Best teacher I've ever had. Seriously, he's excellent at explaining things and honestly cares whether or not you understand.
Mr. Berry is the nicest man I have ever met. I dont think he has ever had a student he didn't like.
He was a fantastic pre-calc teacher. I really liked his style of teaching, and he's simply a great guy.
to repeat what everyone said, AWESOMEST GUY EVER! His explanations sometimes confuse me, but all the help and understanding he gives me makes up for everything
Me: "Mr. Berry, this test question is confusing." Mr Berry: "The reason is wrong is because you're not picking B." THAT'S HOW EASY HE IS.
aww Mr. Berry--i <33 you!! What an awesome person. I couldn't have survived compsci w/o you! Even ppl who didnt have him loved him!
Definitely Jesus. Not so great at helping large groups but really good one-on-one. Nicest teacher at TJ.
words cannot express how much i love this man...hes the NICEST PERSON IN THE ENTIRE WORD...god sent us an angel in the form of a math and compsci teacher!
Verrry nice guy. If you ask him questions, he will be very helpful.
Not every teacher will catch you skipping and then smile and love you anyways...
is he an... angel? He certainly is the nicest teacher i have ever met.
Incredibly sweet&nice&helpful&clear. Before tests, I come in the morning before early & he'd go over practically the whole chap with me. GREAT teacher 'nuf said
you'd have to try and hate him, one of the coolest teachers i've ever had
he is very very clear in his explanations and the way he teaches. if you have mr. berry, there is no excuse for not understanding...!
GreatEST comp sci evar. Helps you when you need it most.
yeah!!! greatest teacher.. awesome!! so sweet, nice, funny, helpful
Mr. Berry's probably the best math teacher i've had!
Mr. Berry is the closest thing to Jesus I have ever met.
Great teacher, very kind and if you don't understand something, he will be right there helping you when you most need it.
The greatest comp sci teacher ever!!! Soo nice, he never yells or gets upset!
Awesome!!! I love him, and he's always ready to help you if you get stuck. You go, Mr. Berry!
MR BERRY IS THE BEST COMPSCI TEACHER EVER!! HE ROCKS!!
Great APCS class! I learned a lot and had a great time. And if anything was unclear, he went back to help and gave more info.
Bit slow, But when you need help, he'd pull ya through
Had him for Pre-calc, then worked for him as a summer CS TA. Nicest teacher ever--I don't think I've ever heard him raise his voice.
He's a really awesome man, but less so of a teacher. He teaches to the dumbest kid in the class so everyone else is usually bored. This is why class is easy.
Nicest teacher in the school, really cares about his students. If you want to learn, he will help you
is it possible to do bad in his class? I got a b+ in ComSci and i still don't know how to program
Nicest teacher ever. Everyone loves him, and always has.
gotta be one of the nicest teachers i've ever had =]
he made 7th period the BEST end to a hard day. i hope i get him again next year
VERY nice guy. Always willing to help. Some of his tests are hard though.
Best teacher evar! Always willing to help, and actually helpful at that.
How can you not like Mr. Berry? He should teach every class!
