Mr. Salazar is one of the best teachers I've had. He's organized, knowledgeable, and funny. The class isn't an easy A, but you'll get one if you're genuinely interested in the subject and in improving. He doesn't try to trick you on the test, and he grades fairly. Just listen carefully during class and take good notes. He's part of the reason why I love chemistry. I don't know if I'll still love it after AP Chemistry though...

Mr.Salazar is the best, he has a great understanding of what he is teaching and exactly how to teach it, genuinely cares for his students, and has a great sense of humor. His class is definitely not difficult to get an A as long as you pay attention to his lectures and ask for help when needed, he is very very nice. Anyone should be grateful to be lucky enough to be in his Honors Chemistry class. :)

Salazar is a great teacher. He teaches very well, and you can tell he is concerned with you if you are not doing well in his class. The most inconvenient thing with Salazar is he leaves right after the bell rings for 7th period. It can be hard to find him outside of class

He is a good teacher and really makes sure you understand the material. His tests are actually really easy, but they're so easy to make mistakes on that it's easy to get a B. Before every test, you'll know exactly how to do everything, and the rest is on you. He even made quantum mechanics a little easier to understand. He's funny and great to interact with, and cool to know him personally. Just put in enough effort, and you'll get a minimum B-. You have to be a prodigy to get an A however.

In truth, I wish I had regular chemistry than Honors chemistry with him. At times, his notes are not exactly clear and it's pretty hard to keep up with him. Along with that, his tests are all write out and he is very picky on small details.

Mr. Salazar teaches very well. He is extremely organized as he follows his calendar strictly, makes neat Powerpoints, and is always prepared to teach the material. However, he teaches incredibly fast, so his class is difficult for those who dislike chemistry and are slow learners like me. He requires you to provide a lot of explanation on his tests, and he grades very strictly, so you must include all details or else you will only get partial credit on each question.

salazar can be the best teacher at school. he makes sure his notes are perfect and that every single student will understand his lessons. also, his powerpoints are super clear and there isnt a lot of notes you have to write. if youre a slow writer but you dont want others to wait, dw he will wait for you anyways and he wont make fun of you. you might sometimes have hw everyday in a week, but they are only 1-2 questions and they are covered in the notes. JUST MAKE SURE TO STUDY FOR TESTS AND QUIZ

Mr. Salazar is by far one of the best chemistry teacher ever.
He literally goes over things for you that you don't understand. He WILL make sure every single one of the students understand it, like literally if one person doesn't understand, he would come persronally by himself to assist that student himself. What a great teacher. He makes unintended jokes, that are not even supposed to be funny but he makes me laugh anyways. His presentations on the board are nicely done. Amazing teacher!

He's an amazing teacher. His class was hard at times, so make sure to never miss a class. Missing a lesson is basically signing your death sentence. He covers a ton of information in class. But he's super funny. Sometimes it's hard to ask a question in class because he gives you the "are you seriously asking me that?" face, but if you don't mind that, go for it (: Make sure to never make stupid mistakes on his tests. That'll cost you a lot of points. He usually grades pretty fairly as well.

I took Mr. Salazar's class a few years ago, almost didn't get a chance to be one of his students. I'm a college student now, and have been taking chemistry courses all throughout of college. I have yet to meet a better teacher or professor then Mr. Salazar. He is probably the best teacher I have ever had. Don't hesitate for one second to take his class. Salazar, if you see this, send me a article about your Lakers like you did back then. I'll be happy to read it.

FLAWLESS TEACHER, FLAWLESS PERSON, FLAWLESS EVERYTHING. It's best to not ask stupid questions that can be answered by looking in the book/at his syllabus, though. He has a water sprayer by his desk and isn't afraid to use it. He's like the Doctor and GLaDOS and general amazingness mashed up into one person. He has really big eyes and likes to drink Snapple Peach Tea. He's really funny, except when his humiliation is directed toward you. (But it's still absolutely hilarious for everyone else.)
