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.
Great guy, great foreign policy class. I learned a lot and it was fun.
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.
amazing teacher very sarcastic knowledgeable of history in every shape of the word?!!!!!!!
Awesome teacher. Makes me realiaze everything new each day...
Great class. Mr. Lyons is very funny (sarcastic). Get the papers done when they're due, and it's an easy class. Deadlines are flexible. Tests can be hard. Study.
Funnest class ever. Very funny sarcastic man, very leniant on rules and deadlines. Get on his good side early and class will be a blast. Often selects out certain students for participation
You will learn. Hard work, participation, and just trying are respected and rewarded.
mr. lyons is one of the best, most interesting social studies teachers i have EVER had. he knows what he is talking about. also, he had a great personality, although his tests are hard until you get the hang of it
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.
Mike Lyons is one of the best teachers I have ever had. I learned so much from Honors Foreign Policy. I loved the educational videos and the crazy debates!
Lyons is the best teacher and teaches the best topic.
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.
Yeah, dude, lyons is the best! Great taste in music too!
Sarcastic, and I loved his 'educational' films, also is personally offended if you don't do well on tests; he really cares about the class
One of the teachers that inspired me to go into the same profession...thanks, Lyons!
Lyons is amazing...love the class and learned sooo much...thanks lyons
So much fun- and def not bad to look at! He def makes you think and appreciate what you have!!!
