A talented and entertaining man with just a twist of sadism and a healthy dose of egotism. I enjoyed his class, but Hendricken is no better or worse of without him.

Tough at first, but you get used to him. Science fair isn't as bad as it seems. Pay attention and you'll do fine...and never call him Doc Fonz...

Mr. Fontaine is a really good teacher if you do what you're told and read the book and review your notes every night. He made science fair much easier than years past

This Guy lived off of power point. Also, heres a great idea, have your students make 3 day presentations for the entire 4th quarter, so you dont have to teach.

Mr. Fontaine, or as every calls him "Footloose Fontaine (cause of his love of tap dance), is the man. Take him for any science, great man!

He uses the same sayings over and over again and that gets on your nerves. Also his lectures can be really confusing and he gets angry if you ask him questions

Not the best at getting his point accross or dealing with students, have to teach yourself the class, if you can take notes from the text you'll fair well
