One of the greatest teachers to ever be a part of the staff at Desert Mountain High school. His teaching style undoubtedly changed the way I thought about math forever. His courses could be somewhat challenging for the average math student, but his extremely intuitive teaching methods leave all students with a revamped understanding of mathematics and problem solving in general. I was in his Algebra II class 3 years ago yet I still reference his class when working through calculus problems.

I love Mr. Pantier! I struggled in his class but I can honestly say that its most likely because I did not try hard enough. Mr. Pantier is really smart and has great knowledge of math. But more importantly, he loves math and he loves teaching. If you're there to learn Mr. Pantier will do everything in his power to help you

I had him for two of my four years of math. He taught me Algebra 2 honors and Calc BC/IB Math HL. He does an amazing job explaining concepts in a way that students can understand and comprehend them. The tests are not very hard if you understand the math itself. He can be slightly intimidating and sometimes makes sarcastic jokes at his students' expense. He make math interesting and enjoyable. My only criticism would be that in the combo AP/IB class, much more emphasis is put on AP preparation.

Best math teacher I have ever had. Had him for Algebra 2 and he made it easier and fun. He hold you to high standards but it helps you be a better student. If you do up work and participate in class then he will like you! Best teacher at DMHS!

Mr. Pantier is by far the best math teacher I have ever had. I've had him for two years, and while I've never had to work so hard in a class, I have also never learned as much. He completely prepared me for the AP test and any classes I have to come.

Pantier is the best math teacher at Desert Mountain and one of my favorite teachers. If you do you homework, participate in class, and seek additional help if you need it, then the class will be easy. Don't be late to class, don't sleep in class, and don't make excuses.

I took AB Calc with Pantier this year and was really nervous, but he was a great teacher. He really explained the difficult concepts and was available for extra help. As long as you are willing to focus in class, Pantier will be a great teacher. He was also a lot nicer than I thought he would be.

He is a good teacher for alg 2 H. He seems intimidating at first, but he is just a little sarcastic. He does try to help you, but if you become annoying to him, he just stops listening to you.
