I don't understand his teaching method because whether you try really hard, or sit back and do absolutely nothing, you will receive a B+ in his class. He doesn't teach (mainly just lecturing about nothing related to the unit), then he gives a test and some people will fail, and they will still end the year with a B+ average... He's a smart man within the subject but not a great teacher.

Mr. Marzec was probably one of the best science teachers I had in high school. He may have been confusing at the time and often went on huge tangents, but he was so incredibly passionate about what he was teaching, which is something teachers often lack these days. He knows so much about the field and takes pride in what he teaches. Although his style of teaching may not be everyones cup of tea, I learned so much from him and inspired me more to further my studies in science in college.

I think that he is a great guy, but he is a terrible teacher. He does not get his lessons across so when we get to the test no one knows what is going on.

Mr. Marzec is a really nice guy with a lot of cool things to teach. But he can't get it across in a way we would understand. He repeats the same thing a lot in class. Majority of students don't do well in his class. He Drinks ALOT of ice tea...

Really strict and fast to dole out the detentions. Not very good at giving directions. Tests are irrelevant and obnoxious. Drinks a lot of iced tea.

Please, just realize that if the majority of your students are not doing well, it is a reflection on you as a teacher.

the worst teacher i've ever had. i asked him a question in class and the answer i got was "google it." all his tests are on random facts that aren't even relevant to anything he's taught us. his grading system is arbitrary.

He is a nice guy who is very smart, but he is so disorganized, vague about assignments, and not good at explaining things in words high schoolers understand.

Very easy class, you're given a ton of work but you arent really required to do it...and no matter what you get on tests/quizzes, you will get in the B/A range
