It's been a while since I've been in school, but this man was one of the few teachers that made an impact. Don't get me wrong - he's kinda nuts, but in a good way, and was never the teacher that stood at the board repeating things straight from the book. His style helped me understand other sciences I struggled with from other teachers. he is tough, but for sure one of those teachers you look back on and really appreciate as an adult.
This guy is off his rocker. He killed the fish and blamed it on our class! Material is all made up, and he is all over the place in class. Hard to tell if we actually learned any science or if it was all just made up! Also, there's no mountain pond!! It doesn't exist!! Nor was there ever a farm!!! He doesn't own a diesel truck and his Volkswagen TDI polluted the environment. DO NOT TAKE!! Avoid at all costs.
This man is crazy. We did no actual work all year and he freaked out on our class for nothing. We learned nothing of substance and he is an insane individual with no respect for authority. He thought he was so knowledgeable on life but he really knew nothing. We did an experiment with fish and he left them in the sun in a bucket and killed them all! He then proceeded to blame us for this incident. Maybe 10 years ago he was an okay teacher but now he all around an awful teacher who needs to go.
I'm a 2009 graduate from West Springfield High School and now a local area reporter. I took Mr. Scott's Environmental Science course nearly a decade ago and it has impacted my life in a positive way to this day. Mr. Scott isn't afraid to challenge his students with difficult material and challenge their world views. The first half of the semester we focused on hard science; completing rigorous field work and studies and the second half dealt with critical thinking. Mr. Scott is simply the best.
Sure am glad to have had him as a teacher. He made a positive stamp on my life and many others for certain. At any rate an rare honest and proud fella. I'd be honored to send my child his way or lend him a hand in need.
mr. scott is a really good teacher! hes one of the best teachers i have ever had!
Great teacher, funny guy who really knows what he's talking about.
