He is an amazing chemistry teacher. He does yell a lot but that is only because he cares about his students and want them to do their best. He knows what he is teaching and can actually teach the material in a way that is easy to understand.

If you want to get a 100 on his exams, just study the castlelearning he assigned the day or two before. I barely paid attention in his class and I got higher 90 almost every time.

there was a time where i walked into class and this girl was crying bc his yelling scared her, and he only said that he was speaking loudly. he walked away, smiling like there was nothing wrong. i think he needs to understand that there are a lot of students out there that are undiagnosed with mental illnesses such as anxiety. from my personal experience, ive cried in his class a few times he didnt even notice. also, he blocks the board a lot when he finishes writing and talks into the board.

He had his flaws; but out of all the chemistry teachers in the building, he's definitely the best. You can tell he really cared about his students and made sure everyone was in class, listening. He's very understanding and compassionate. Definitely do not take his class for granted because he's one of the only teachers that can actually teach chemistry properly!

I'm a student in his honors chem class, and I liked him a lot in the beginning of the year. He definitely knows what he's talking about, and has been teaching for a very long time. He does pick favorites however, and they'll pretty much stay the same for the whole year. Towards the end, he rushed the material a lot more, and was a much better teacher in the beginning. A lot of students ended up getting lower grades at the end as a result, & he blamed it all on me instead of his teaching skills.

He's an okay teacher, towards the end of the year he began to slack a lot and stopped teaching in detail. He's pretty rude which is hard to tolerate but he gets the point across about chemistry.

Dr Sass is my favorite science teacher that I have ever had! He is extremely comical but doesn't play about his work. He often jokes around with his students but doesn't let them joke when it comes to assignments. Dr Sass holds a standard for his students. He creates bond with his students with very funny nicknames. He often gives his students advice for life and the regents. He makes me consider failing the regents so I can have him again.

Dr. Sass was the best science teacher I've ever had. He's the reason why I got a 92 on my Chem regents. He absolutely HATES when students cut his class and/or are late; you'll be the joke of the year if your'e a slacker. Even though I was late pretty much everyday to his class, he had to love me because I was doing so well. I owe all my Chemistry success to him. He's tough but he's a miracle worker.

Be a good friend with him. He will be nice to you.
But two things must kept in the class are 1) never raise your hand or speak out loud the wrong asnwers; he gonna yell at you and make fun of you. 2)never give any sloppy or low quality works to him. He will be really mad at you even during the exam.

He's the most amazing teacher I've ever met in my entire life. He is REALLY fun once you get to know him, just don't frick up because you'll probably miss the best experiences in your life. Although I wasn't the best in his class (AYYY 40 BOYS), he is still a great teacher and is soft as a teddy bear in the inside <3 HE EVEN BREAK DANCED FOR US WHAT TEACHER DOES THAT!!! Sass is my lord and savior and I am very happy I gave him a chance.

I had him for summer school and was very nice. He's only strict with bad kids but he cares about all his students. His main goal is to get everyone to understand and pass the regents. He cares so much that he hunts kids down that dont do their labs and tell them the consequences. He cares and is scary at times but overall an amazing teacher!

Dr Sass is a awesome teacher, but is very difficult. Thats why he only works with honor students, but do his work and NEVER cut lab or his class or else he will put you on the spot. He also breakdances for his classes that do really well. I wouldn't call it break dancing, he gets on the floor and rolls around,but he is a great chemistry teacher.

This guy is one hard nipple-man. He either needs to get an undershirt, or some under-padding for his shirt. I have nothing against him, except that he mysteriously dropped me from his science research class, and I was a really GOOD science research student. My parents complained but he told them that the class was full. Last time I checked, it only had like 15 people. I guess that I was on his peripheral vision where his nipples block his view. He better do something about them, like push-ups.
