Looking back on his cla ss, I really enjoyed it. Tests were fair, and if you studied and did his packet you would be fine. Ask questions, do the extra credit, be on-time, and if you play a sport, don't be afraid to talk to him about it!
Very nice person, as well. He wants to see all of his students do well. I wish I had him again this year; on to Chemistry...

Mr. Livingston is by far one of the easiest Bio teachers at TP. He isn't boring or weird, but his notes can get a little dreary when they're extensive. His packets and explanations are usually pretty easy to understand. His tests are marginally difficult. Just be prepared for tons of "Stand By"'s and slow talking. His references to his own life can be confusing and awkward but you sorta get used to it.
In all Mr.Livingston is a great teacher to have compared to the rest of the BIO teachers

Favorite teacher. Had him for bio and he is sooo nice. If ur not ready for a test he gives u an extra week to do it. Barely any HW and always accepts late work. If you get him your super lucky and will get a good grade if you try a little bit. He's rly funny and class always goes by fast

LOVE HIMMM he is the best bio teacher by far

I had Livingston Freshman year and he is one of my favorite teachers. He incorporates funny jokes into his lessons to keep students entertained and knows the material very well. Not too much homework and the tests are straight forward.

BEST bio teacher ever. Pretty easy, considering how his explanations usually had some slightly awkward saying but it really sticks in your head that way. Helps out every day in his class during lunch and doesn't hesitate to help with any questions.

Not as great as everyone says on here. I disagree with the fact that you dont have to do homework because he checks it in the packets. I think he is a good teacher but you are comparing him to isla.

the best biology I teacher, and there are some horrible ones. you are extremely lucky if you get him when you compare him to some other teachers. usually he doesn't like discussions or thought provoking questions because he likes lecturing and talking so much. REALLY good at teaching , might get kind of boring after a while. this is a great chance to soak up some biology if you like it. will keep control of class, you watch a lot of videos, tests are easy, if ur smart than this is a class to cruise on

He teaches biology VERY well, it is obvious he enjoys doing so. It really got me interested in biology. The only complaint I would have against him is that you can get away without ever doing any homework as he never checks it, and even if he does, he does not read it so you could put totally unrelavent things and he would never know. I learned allot from just paying attention during class, if you do that you dont really need to read the book.
