Mr.Mcginnity is an overall phenomenal teacher; his demonstration for crucial topics each unit are amazing. His presentations are a perfect mix of videos for help with understanding and practice questions from the Earth Science Text Book. The labs are simple if you put in the time and effort to do the homework given and pay attention in class. He gives appropriate due dates for labs and is very understanding when it comes to retaking quizzes and occasionally a test if your an attentive student.
I asked a simple question that I was very confused about. He replied with, "Really, you don't understand this?! I spent 3 classes going over it!" Uhh... I was absent the days before. he got pissed at me and told me I should pay attetion more. do not recommend him. teachers are supposed to answer questions when students are confused. he lost his mind when you asked a question, and I counted the minutes until class ended. Content was pretty boring :/
I had him years ago and one time I saw a pencil on the ground near my desk so I picked it up and it turned out to be his. He said "Is that my pencil?" and I said "I don't know, is it? I found it on the floor, here you go." and then he said "You know, I just lost all the respect I almost had for you." He hated me the rest of the school year. He was a decent teacher though, I think.
Some days were good and I enjoyed being a part of his class learning a lot and doing labs, but other days i counted down the minutes until the class was over. If you were confused and asked a question he would embarrass you in front of the whole class and make you feel so stupid he encouraged questions but when you ask them you would only get more confused and now scared to ask any more questions. That is not what learning is, he's the teacher and supposed to help. I had a decent year though ...
When I asked questions he would yell at me and get frustrated, he chose favorites the whole year and I was scared to ask a question because I didn't want to get yelled at. I was very confused when he explained things
Mr McGinnity was pretty fun. He was a good teacher. Just that he can get mad easily if you ask questions you should already know or don't understand.
Mr. McGinnity is a chill teacher and shares his laughs. We like to call him Mr. McG, McGiggles or McGiggity. I think he's cool
Super chill and he was a great teacher
Mr.McGinnity was a good teacher. He was thorough when he answered questions and made sure things made sense. I liked how his class had safety nets when you didn't do so good on a lab or quiz. He made class fun and interesting.
Pretty good teacher, he's very knowledgeable about earth science. Except he's kind of creepy sometimes.
He's a pretty chill guy, can get upset a little easily but working with annoying kids isn't the easiest job. He's very helpful and sometimes kind. He loves to mess with students it's a very fun class.
Not a bad year with mr. Mcgee but sometimes he got a little too mad too fast and that made me pissed
He was a great teacher. Very understanding and willing to help at anytime with homework or lab make ups.
This has been a great year and Mr. McGinnity has been a great part of that. He's a very knowledgeable and helpful teacher and I'd recommend him to any student.
Have our arguments sometimes but learned a lot
he is always willing too help a student out when they need it and he is always making time out of his day to help others, he is never to strict and never to lenient. he didnt loose his cool when i gave him attitude tht one tyme -Angelica
Good teacher could be a little more explanative but very fun class enjoyed this year
he is a good teacher who is very knowledgeable and teaches interesting subjects it is amazing what I have learned in his class whether its fun or silly or notes and class activities overall I enjoyed this class
Its alright but really confusing
Sometimes helps, I get confused alot. Great guy, but not the best at explaining.
ummm hi Mr.McGinnity this is your favorite student so um here is your rating.Have a nice day.
I think when hes mad, he takes it out on the wrong people, or just on the class when it seems like his anger is toward a certain student. I don't think hes the most helpful, but his policy's are the best iv seen out of any other teacher.
awesome teacher kind of loses you some times though
He is a kind and careing teacher I just lost interest in his class. Like walk in.....instant zone out,
He is fun in class and sometimes will make fun of kids for a laugh. he never really yells as long as your good
A very helpful teacher who makes jokes that sometimes only a few kids in the class understand. He allows you to correct labs that you may have done a bad grade o, which can raise your grade. Sometimes he does have moments when the class is bad or not following directions and yells a bit...
i always get hungry in his class but he's pretty bombinnnn
he used to have a beard and he lets the class do whatever we want sometimes
Greatest science teacher ever, I will never forget his class!
Makes class intresting. He calls us ungratefull and disrespectful people!!
