This class made me want to pursue a career in biology. I have a lot of respect and admiration for Mr. Tirmble and his hands on learning style. He teaches independence and the incorporation of creativity to solve real life problems. Every assignment means something in personal growth and a higher understanding. Students of his from 30 years ago remember his class.This coming year will be his last year teaching, I highly encourage you to take his class.

I am now graduating college with a teaching degree and I still refer to Mr. Trimble for inspiration. His personality leaves something to be desired, however his teaching style is incredible! He teaches you how to survive in the real world and allows you to apply the skills he teaches in a practical way. He is hands down one of the best teachers I have ever had. I will forever have my survival kit from his class.

I was one of Mr. Trimble's younger students. I took his class in 1999/2000 as a sophomore. I still carry a coffee can survival kit in my car, 16 years later. He was the best teacher I've ever learned from. His class is very difficult, but worth every bit of time you put in. If you take his class be prepared to figure things out on your own and do the research. He will help if you ask, you only need ask the proper questions.

His method of teaching is basically like he gives you one piece but expects you to finish the whole puzzle on your own. He doesn't really answer questions, but he's clearly knowledgeable and well experienced in biology.

He lets you do the things on your own. He is very knowledgeable. He doesn't usually have test, but when he does, they're easy. He will go hard on you, to push your to do well.

Unfortunately, Mr. Trimble has seen better teaching days. He seems to be prejudicial towards some groups of students and seems to be going through the motions of teaching.

Without doubt, Trimble is the best teacher I've ever had in my entire life. We did so many awesome things in his class (ie wilderness survival trip, research project in the outdoors, and the cat dissection!). However, he's a tough teacher. Sometimes he has migraines which dramatically change his mood. The class itself has a few big assignments, so start early to stay on track. He has high standards for presentations and will drill you if you aren't prepared.(although he's a pretty easy grader)

Best class ever! At first, you might not be used to his teaching style, but there is a method to his madness. I learned more in his class than in all my other classes at Corona combined.

He made me realize how fantastic biology really is. I went in with little experience and little interest. Now I know that in college I am going to major in biology! Fantastic man, truly inspiring!

Trimble...where to begin? Well, for one thing his class is HARD. If you're willing to spend a lot of time outside of class, you'll be okay. He's also very intimidating and not easily approached. He ha
