He's an awesome teacher. He is highly knowledgeable on biology, and we do some pretty fun stuff. He also always is sarcastic and has an awesome sense of humor. His tests and quizzes can be hard, but he always posts a study guide to Blackboard so you can study in the textbook literally months in advance. There is a moderate amount of homework, but it's pretty manageable and at most you have to spend 25 minutes on it every few days. Overall, excellent teacher.

He used to teach Math, but he's now in Science. Very knowledgeable, but sometimes sarcastic and a bit harsh. If you give lots of effort he will like you though. He has these fun class things like a Y-jar and a Poser of the Day, and sometimes he tells personal anecdotes. Overall excellent teacher.15

One of my favorite teachers. He's a great soccer coach and also a really good science teacher. Study hard for the tests and do all the readings and you'll be in for the clear. His class is hard, but with enough effort, you'll pass.

In 8th grade I LOVED his class! He really appreciates students who take science seriously or at least pay attention and try to learn. He is extremely knowledgeable on science and his tests are easy if you study. He is great at teaching and gives really good extra help. Labs were a blast in his class and he's hilarious. Great teacher overall.

He is heavy on homework and doesn't cut you slack on it, but he is a fun teacher to have (his class is a lot more fun than the homework he gives).

He can be a little grumpy sometimes, but if you're a good student and listen he respects you. He sets time aside to help students, and makes sure you understand all of the material before moving forward.

He was very good a teaching, yet his tests were impossible. It would take weeks to finish, and at one point over half the class failed and only 1 person got an a. He is good with tips on how to do things but he doesn't really like to help you- he's definently not warm and fuzzy. just be careful in his class.

Hes a great teacher overall, (i had him for both math and science.) He gives TONS of hw and some of his tests/quizzes are unfair, but he is still a great teacher. I might have him nxt year 2

I thought that Mr. Ingersoll was a very cool teacher, he would always let us retake test and was very good at explaining the work when anyone struggled

Like last year, math teachers are really harsh graders. He has a way of explaining things that you feel really dumb for not understanding them in the first place.

Mr. Ingersoll would always give you an opportunity to succeed, he would let you retake tests several times, so it was hard to not get an A in his class. his class was extremely fast paced and it was a little hard to keep up sometimes.

Well, I would not go right to cool teacher-wise, but you are a very interesting person! Oh, I just don't know about you...I guess you are one of the best, though(considering my record)I mean no offense; I still think in some ways you are cool.
