Just no. I learned NOTHING in his class. Because of him, the regents felt more like an SAT II test than a stupid state one. Never taught a single day as far as I remember. No doubt he's a very nice and sweet man, but if you're gonna be a teacher at least teach something. I remember when he said he was going to retire last year, and then he changed his mind, he said (and I quote), "I'm not going to retire because I like teaching too much." What.A.Joke.

The least strict teacher you will meet. Gives high curves where if you have a 55 the curve gives you an 80.

Mr. Jones is sweet and clueless like a grandfather. In robotics he barely interferes and lets you figure it out.

Hard not to get in the 90s if you actually pay attention. Physics makes sense when he explains it. Hint-do the problems on his handouts - that's what he bases his exams on.

Mr. Jones you rock! You have to be more responsible in this class because Jones isn't going to micromanage you. He explains physics so simply and he's so funny and has a funny laugh too :)!

One of the smartest teachers at the school and also one of the most educated. However, his teaching ability doesn't measure up. He's an easy grader though, so you'll luck out by having him.

He is always willing to help students in a subject. If you're having problems, please go and ask him questions. He's a kind, funny, warm guy. He made Physics class quite an enjoyable and wonderful learning experience.

mr jones is a good guy, but learning physics from him was a little bit difficult. sometimes we get a little sidetracked in class. but if you do need help, ASK! physics is sometimes tough to understand.

He thinks he's funny...but he's not. He thinks he's cool...but he's not. He thinks he's a good teacher...but he's not. What he is is easy, at least. Everyone has their redeeming quality!

He is really lazy. He teaches 2 lessons per week and takes his time. But if he teaches, u'll learn. For the other days, just relax and talk w/ ur friends.
