Mr. Cuddy was one of my favorite teachers. He was one of the only teachers that did fun and exciting labs. For example, he used a lawn mower generator to shock us! We also got to burn balloons filled with nitrogen. The only downfall to Cuddy is he can be very confusing at times and gives a lot of work. Great teacher!!!!!!!!!!!!

Mr. Cuddy is a nice teacher, but the amount of work he assigns is out of control. I'm pretty sure Mr. Cuddy just thinks we have Science homework and nothing else. Some of the assignments is just busy work that takes hours.

Mr. Cuddy is the worst teacher I've ever had. He does not know a thing about the subject. I've had terrible experiences with him.he will go off on random tangents about to do with the subject.do you often drop box on the floor. I am definitely worried about next year,because I have not learned a thing this year.

Mr. Cuddy is not very good at teaching. He might be a nice person, but he is bad at explaining and changes directions a lot. I am a good student, and you have to be very self-reliant in his class. He rants a lot, does not provide material to learn, and pretends to know things that he doesn't, but I could see right through his act. It gets very annoying to deal with him after awhile.
