Brissey might be the best teacher I have ever had and will ever have and is definetely on the top 3. It's a shame that the school fired him because he had more guts than most teachers and actually taught his students how to think.

he is literally insane. he taught my class how to make meth on the third day of school. he gives a lot of extra credit (he puts like 20 extra questions on his test and any you answer are extra credit) but it only works if you understand the material. i recommend getting a tutor and tuning out everything he says in class, because a lot of his lectures and anecdotes are wrong or completely crazy. i didn't have to take the finals in his class, though, so if you understand the material youll be fine

Prefers using anecdotes instead of the book but he gets the point across. Quality teacher and a joy to have as a teacher.

Rather interesting to say the least. Instead of actually teaching he prefers to go on rants about how the towns going to get hit by a hurricane and that cyborgs will take over by 2019. If you get him try to switch out.

He's incredibly interesting to have as a teacher. He claims to know a lot and that he's done a lot of ridiculously amazing things, but most of what he says isn't true. Doesn't follow the book for the most part. Not great at teaching. good luck

he is quite possibly the worst teacher at the school. He does not keep records of your grades and therefore what you receive in the class is solely based on whether he likes you or not. I can honestly say i have not learned a single thing in his class.

If you think that he's full of knowledge of random things, it's because you fail to realize that 99% of his claims are complete BS. It is also quite notable that he did his students a disservice by his refusal to educate them.

The absolute worst random teacher ever. Good luck on Star testing as you will fail it thanks to him. Its a waste of a year. He is usually nice though. His tests usually ask things weirdly or things we never learned. I don't know how I did it but I got an A.

VERY WIERD...but once you get past that he's pretty cool. His style of teaching is to teach us a whole bunch in chunks, then take a string of days to relax and watch movies, of which he has manycool ones. He'll tell you some wierd stories, be very skeptic
