Looking back around a decade since I had Mr. Lyons--I can easily say he is the best teacher I have ever had. This includes college and law school professors. He has a way of engaging the class and fostering an environment of creative thinking that is unparalleled in classrooms, and certainly not in high schools. I've heard various complaints from people that he is too sarcastic. Well, perhaps a lesson in that is to not take yourself so seriously.

He is a very funny guy. His foreign policy class was great and fun. Everyone complains about his tests but they're actually pretty easy if you study and pay attention.

Mr. Lyons is the definitely the best teacher I've every had. He makes himself more of a friend than a teacher. He offers great advice, has a great sense of humor, and is very chill. Fopo was a very fun class and I learned a lot on foreign policy and a lot of life lessons. Being the most interesting man in Pittsburgh, Mr. Lyons has an endless amount of great stories and life experiences to share.

Foreign policy was one of the best classes that I've taken at na. It was really fun but also very informative for just a semester class. Mr lyons is really good at working with students that are very informed but also students who come into the class with no knowledge on foreign affairs. Class was always lively and fun and i learned a ton. Very fun teacher!

One of the best teachers I've ever had. He's funny and sarcastic, uses jokes to make the lessons memorable, is actually pretty nice, has review games, and is pretty good about make up work.

I was rating how bad my college teachers were and wanted to go back and rate the best teacher ever. Mr. Lyons is hilarious, brilliant, and cares for his students. His affect on my education will last forever. I wish there were more of his kind.

Lyons is the man, the sarcasm is great, it should be a requirement that you must take one course taught by Mr. Lyons to graduate, thats how good he is.
