Mr. Overley's Bio AP class was a very challenging class but also very rewarding. Mr. Overley is clearly a knowledgeable person when it comes to biology, but I as a student had difficulty learning from him because his teaching style is not effective for me. He lectures without much structure, and it is difficult to get the big picture idea because there aren't key terms to write down. His emphasis on labs is very good for those serious about science. His exams really test you.

Bio Honors is hard and lots of work. However, he is always there to help you and he cares about your success in life. He is a wicked fast grader, which I admire in him. Labs and tests are terror, you really have to know the material very well to do well. I disliked the way he ran the class though (Assignment must be turned the day they're due NO EXCEPTIONS and before the bell rings) Advice to future student (if there is one): Don't be afraid to ask for help, he will almost always help you :)

Bio honors is a very difficult class but totally worth it. I was hesitant to take it at first, but I'm so glad I did. Doing the science fair project was probably one of the hardest things I've ever done but it was still a lot of fun. He places lot of emphasis on not grabbing for points that don't matter and also trying to understand full concepts, which I greatly appreciate.

A very good teacher who knows exactly what he is teaching and saying from the years of experiences. I didn't really like him at first, but now I realize just how much effort he put into teaching us all. I appreciated it all, and I am going to miss him when I move onto next year.

You can tell that he really wants to be a professor. He leaves you with a randomly disjointed knowledge in bio, but you'll know some things in great detail. I like him regardless.

Freshman Honors Bio: stressful, a shock. You don't like him much. AP Bio: You're used to him. Everything's easier. You enjoy what you learn. Labs still stressful lol. A very busy dedicated man though.
