He was a great teacher, who tried so hard to get us to love physics. (Some of us still did not really like it.) But Mr. P was very clear with his lessons and I saw that he worked vigorously to present the material clearly. His tests always were fair, not easy -but fair. I really miss Mr. Propper.

Mr. Propper works harder than the students to provide a comprehensive teaching of the material. If you don't do well in this class, it is up to you to fix it because it is certainly not his fault. He provides all materials required and will go out of the way to email different documents if you find trouble obtaining them yourself. He is very allowing and a little too patient with students who don't give a damn about his class. CHIRREN, GO HOME, SIT DOWN AND OPEN UP THE BARRON'S BOOK.

I miss Mr. Propper a lot, and I hope it's true that he's coming back. He was a very dedicated and personable teacher, with a lot of crazy stories about his life and a weirdly quirky outlook on the world. His class isn't particularly easy, but when I actually put in the work second semester I aced it. The physics wing just isn't the same without him.

A man who has a true passion for teaching. I finally saw him get angry enough to toss out a student who made us all miserable. Too many kids here at BS who do not belong here. Hat's off to a great teacher who was too patient. This course is not easy, but no one said it would be. Having a very knowledgeable teacher who breaks it down for us makes us very fortunate.
