mr maloney is a true G. While he really isnt the best teacher and often has to give extra credit, he is hilarious and very helpful if you meet with him after school. Very knowledgeable about fossil fuels

Don't get me wrong Mr. Maloney isn't a bad guy but he is the worst teacher EVER. I have him first period and when he's tired he has the iq of a brick wall and consistently gets answers wrong and confuses the whole class. He doesn't explain anything and the only way to do well in his class to is to teach yourself which totally defeats the purpose of going to class to be taught. I don't know how he got a job as a teacher considering He literally teaches the class nothing. (Honors Earth Science)

Rate My Teachers only allows one to rate qualities of a teacher classroom wise. Mr. Maloney is an awesome, cool, fun, and caring guy. He's trying his best to teach and I think that everyone can see that effort, even if sometimes he doesn't do it perfectly. He is sometimes a little bit confusing in class but if you find him for extra help or see him after school, he works A LOT better with students one on one. Nobody should blame him if a student doesn't want to seek extra help. A+!!

Mr. Maloney is honestly one of the nicest teachers you'll meet at ABRHS, but his honor's class can get somewhat difficult at times. First, he's a knowledgeable guy who genuinely cares about his students gaining a full understanding of every chapter. Although, there is quite a lot of studying you have to do in his class, and you must be listening attentively in class to learn everything. He teaches the best he can, but you definitely have to be devoted to succeed.

Mr. Maloney is definitely a very nice person, but i don't know how he became the teacher at ABRHS, he is truly a very boring teacher and has no teaching skills whatsoever. This is the sole reason people do bad in his class. The only way to do good is by reading the textbook and teaching yourself everyday. In all honesty, I don't hate him at all, but I hate the fact that he's bad at teaching. Only a few succeed in this class with an A only because they are good at teaching themselves.

hes super nice and really flexible and we never have a lot of work. he really knows what hes talking about but he just cannot teach at all. dont stress if you dont do well in his class because no one does. the tests arent too hard and whenever we do units from the book (everything after the first term) the book will help if ur confused. he also is after school sometimes. earth science h

Nice guy, but lacks in teaching skills. Never checks the homework. Makes peoples grades better so it looks like he's a good teacher. Likes boys better than girls. Can never remember names. He won't call on you if you don't raise your hand. (AE)

He's really nice just not to clear. To get A s on his test you must study the Science textbook a ton. He's also pretty reasonable.

He is a really nice person and people shouldn't hate on him as much as they do, but he is just very disorganized while talking and the tests are ridiculous.

What you put in is what you get out. Mr. M is a great teacher and definately acts like a rebel teacher, but you learn a lot in his class.

Extra credit will up you a whole letter grade. He isn't the best teacher, and you'll have to teach yourself the material. Overall an easy class though.
