mr mcphee acts like he really cares about his students learning and the future of society as a whole....but he NEVER. TEACHES. he loves his students, and wants them to do well, but he is a terrible teacher.

He's a great guy but he doesn't teach well. You have to have a pretty good understanding of physics already to suceed in his class.

Mr. McPhee cares more about his students than any teacher i have ever had. he takes breaks from the lesson to talk to all of us about our futures. He is an amazing man, and a fantastic teacher.

McPhee is awesome. The fact that he isn't 5.0 is disturbing.

As far as fully knowing and loving the subject he teaches, McPhee is one of the best teachers I've had. He does get off topic, but he teaches well. Physics is awesome.

One of the greatest teachers I've ever had at any level. Better than 95% of my college professors. This man will teach you what it means to be human by relating it to physics!!!!

Great teacher! I still hate Physics, but it is not due to a lack of effort by this man. Get McPhee if you're taking Physics, it will make it easier for you!

Mr. McPhee is the single teacher that I've had to date that actually cared about his students. I took Physics II simply to be in his class again.

McPhee should run in the 2004 election. He is someone that definitly cares about society. But then again, Penn needs him to teach physics.~B4!
