one of the best teachers i ever had. wish he didn't retire! his stories were the best and he would help you as long as you asked for it!
Hard tests. Great stories. Retired now. Awesome teacher. Love him... and his animals!
No one can compare to this guy when it comes to biology. His lectures are so interesting, and his stories are unbelievable! I wish he were still teaching! Hope you have a good one, Mr. McCrea!
He's probably the best teacher I ever had. His class was very challenging, hard tests, fast lecturing, but if you put in the effort it was still really fun. I am so sad he's retiring.
Ask him about a medical condition and he'll have a story to go with it. he's really funny and understanding, if you put in the effort and give him a chance, the class isn't too bad and actually really fun!
Coolest science teacher ever. I think he may have a story or medical condition relevant to every single unit you'll study during the year. His class isn't "easy", but that's not a bad thing. Just do what's expected of you and you'll be fine. He's a really nice, smart guy and I think he makes science very fun. He's also very understanding. Even if the class is hard for you, it's not unfair. His expectations are reasonable.
He's a really smart guy--but he sometimes is unclear in his explanations. Be sure to study not only your books, but his vocabulary for tests and quizzes--they're impossible, otherwise!
He was one of my favorite teachers out of all my schools. He loves teaching and is good at it. Make sure to take notes during lecture and yu'll pass every test! He was amazing but yu have to work hard
Most awesome teacher ever. Tells the best stories. Best class I ever took!
hes only my advisor, but the the oldest teacher there so he knows everything. hes an awesome guy but SOMEBODY had to steal the snake in his room.
Mr. McCrea is the best! He's such a good teacher and doesn't waste time grading homework and has really fair tests and quizes. He has stories about everything he teaches!!
For once, here's a teacher who knows what he's doing and is good at teaching it. Awesome, funny, yet spacy. Best teacher I've ever had in any class. Love ya Phil!!!
