He is very nice and helps you a lot. He is kinda boring sometimes but it is very fun in his class sometimes. He also makes these very long speeches on his lesson.

He was easy if you studied. He can't control his class, he is very confusing at some times, and almost never teaches.

His class was awful. He did not know how to control the class in any way. He barely taught me anything. The lesson that he taught well was the Solar System, because he loved the subject. All we did in that class was talk, mess around, or watch a movie. He was an easy A teacher but a waste of time. Everyday going into his class was a great way to waste time and not learn anything.

so i was he student for 8th grade year. He wasn't the easiest teacher. First semester was easy but as second came by it started to be hard. He would ALWAYS give quizzes on EVERY Friday, most people will fail because he does not teach you what you need to know. He says very inappropriate things. His experiments are horrible. And he would always rant to us how the economy is going down and his students are never thankful that he is teaching.

He was an okay teacher. he was really easy the first semester but the second one he started getting harder. he would give us quizzes or tests almost every friday. and he would always talk about nonsense and then give you your assignment 15 minutes before class ended and expected you to turn it in.
