He knows his stuff but can't teach for life.
Had Mr. Harber for freshman biology. I can honestly say that I didn't learn anything in that class. He was so distracted all the time and talked about his private personal life and his wife way too often. He constantly loses work and by the end of the year, had lost most of the bio labs that we clearly handed in. He should also really stop filming students in the beginning of the year by sticking a camera in front of our faces and telling us to 'state our name and seat number'.
He is not a bad teacher, but he isn't the best. Too many children take advantage of that and i would know. He is hard working, but disorganized which is really hard for him because of his age. He got fired this year for what seems to be touching a girls butt, but i believe he was a hard working teacher who was taken FOR GRANTED of and not tanked for trying.
I have always been a great science student. I have always done well in all of my science classes yet this is the only class where I have gotten lower than a 90. He takes homework and returns it three months later. He also writes sloppily and he cannot seem to teach quite well. I understand from the text book more than him. He also is very wishy washy as in he doesn't really have a set rules like how to get homeworks and labs everytime.
he's a very sloppy teacher when i had him back 3 years ago. i got a good grade in the class (bio) which is all that matters to me
Touched that he dedicates a lot of his time on setting up the powerpoints, printing handouts, and talks a lot with you in tutoring when you need help. If you want to pass his class, you have to read the textbook (do his homework). He talks a lot in class and you will not understand a single thing he says if you didn't read the textbook and you would have to survive this every single class. The only way to pass his class is to understand his homework (even if it's stupid).
Overall, he is a bad teacher. He contradicts himself often and he is not clear in his words. Most of the time, the students have no idea what he is saying.
Words cannot describe how horrible of a teacher he is.
Spits and looks at girl's chests. Horrible teacher. Some advice would be to transfer immediately. Although sort of helpful, very bad grader.
Has a very split personality. He is one of the more enigmatic teachers in this school, and as a result it is difficult to describe as either good or bad. I'd say he's simply off that spectrum.
This guy can't teach at all I'm so serious, half of the class got 50's.
i just have no idea about what he talks about in class, idk how he became a techer ....
No idea what he says most of the time, either doesn't blink or blinks uncontrollably, and somehow misheard 'organelle' for 'orgasm'.
he cant remember any1 name and keept prouncing them wrong. He doesnt understand ppl's question and dont really answer them. I didnt learn anything, even if he is teaching no one has a clue because no one knows what the hell is he talking about!
He can't teach and can't spell.Don't know anyone's names. Usually spend the whole period talking. Its kinda boring.
Another one of the typical Tech teachers - great guy, knowledgable, but doesn't know how to teach it.
He's an OK-guy, meaning he can help you understand what you're reading out of the textbook, but he can be a little weird sometimes.
I had him for freshman Biology. I was doing his work but he was LOSING my tests and labs, my average was 70. With a new teacher for the second term my average changed to a 95, and I got a 90 on regent
mr. harber doesnt teach at all! he never tells us anything about our upcoming tests, just says "and you have a test tomorrow!" we're so behind in class, he never gets any work done. very unorganized..
He's a nice guy, but very unorganized. Don't depend on what he says for his tests. Always read the textbooks because the stuff on that are always on the test. Not the best, but what can you do?
Is a pain, I have no clue what is oing on half the time, and I orginally was excited for biology, it was one of my favorite science topics, but now I hate it. I'm trying to transfer.
I think you guys are exaggerating. I had him for awhile before I switched. He speaks with passion and he's really nice. Everyone has faults but there's no point in complaining. Just get over it!
Is extremely unorganized and incompetent. Fails to catch students literally in front of him cheating. Tests are extremely hard and have nothing to do with the classwork. If you get him, TRANSFER ASAP!
There aren't enough words in the English language to explain how horrible of a teacher he is. I am the best student in his class (i got a 100) and he tells me im absent too much. If im absent, and he's such a brilliant teacher, it should be hurting me right? RUN IF YOU GET HIM!
i have him for bio lab ninth when baranowski leaves... omg. lets not talk about it.
he trys to act funny..but hes not and very unorganized during parent teacher conference he treats yu like gold, in class its a differ story
He is a really nice guy but he is a horrible teacher and really can't understand people or their emotions.
HE TRIES TO TEACH, EVEN THOUGH HE CAN'T. HE'S THERE IF U NEED THE HELP THOUGH. HE'S VERY HYPER, AND HIS TESTS HAVE NOTHING TO DO WITH THE CLASS NOTES. READ THE TEXTBOOK.
tell me y we started da term tlkin bout aliens taking over da world and how they are in the shape of hangers madd boring...unclear...just BLAH!!!!
doesnt really teach, but then again Ap bio is way too much stuff to study on ur own
He is ok, just dont stick to topic. His test are based more on textbook than what he said in class.
I think he knows his stuff but I guess he doesn't know how to explain it to us. Everyday a minimum of five people sleep in my class. But hey, everyone has a fla
Hard, mean, biased. But his teaching made me realize that college will require my own method of studying and learning with what I got. Gave me lots of info.
You guys got to give Mr. Harber a break....he really tries and if you ever need him hes always there to help hes nice cant blame him for having flaws
This teacher is weird too much jumping he gots to learn not to use a college text book on our tests
I think he needs to stop jumping in class and make himself my clear
i'm one of the best students in his class and I have a problem keeping my eyes open...enough pictures on the projectors...and he gotta learn organization!
Has a deep knowledge in science. Tries to make each lesson entertaining by adding a little spice to it. Definintely knows how to teach science.
This class is pointless in the long run because you come out with nothing, unfortunately. A bit more organization and effort would make it better.
I thought that he actually taught, when you pay attention, at least he's not as bad as Dr.Stein
good teacher and all. needs 2 learn not the stand in front of his notes
Hes a cool teacher and tries VERY HARD to teach well and help out his students.
feLt baD 4 hiM,..i failEd CUz u peOPleZ wuLdn'T pay atteNtioN!
he is the worst teacher evvvvvveeeeeeeerrrrr, does not teach at alll!!!!!!!!!!
i still don't get how he turned the krebs cycle into a carnival...
Adds surprising questions on test/quiz. Tries hard to teach well. Good teacher
good teacher, he tries hard; under/appreciated. show some freakin' enthusiasm!
Definitely one of the better teachers in the dept. So glad I had him.
he was so annoying! i failed his tests tho & he still passed me with an 80!
