Mr.Lasselle is the most awesome science teacher ever. Sure his ciriculum is challenging and engaging.But,he is trying to prepare us for years ahead. He is very wise and insightful. He can also make his lessons extremely fun. He uses his own tests and material which adds to the difficulty. He is also quite funny during his lessons. If you want to succeed in his class YOU MUST PAY ATTENTION EVEN TO THE LITTLEST DETAILS AS HE WILL TRY TO TEST YOUR MEMORY DURING AN EXAM. He is the best science prof.

Mr. Lasselle is a a very strange teacher. I really dislike his class. His tests are super hard, his labs make NO sense and he just has strange ways. To anyone who has his in the future...good luck and pray for a student teacher because he does nothing to help you.

Mr. Richard Lasselle is my 7th grade teacher now. He should be a college professor because he is too too smart for our age and for the huge work load he gives us and the littelest amt. of time to do it. I don't like him and when i ask him for help he doesn't help me he just says figure it out or you have to think about it. But us kids do, and when we thought about it and didn't get it, we came to him for help but he doesn't help. Mrs. K is awesome and helps us when we need it.

Mr. Lasselle is currently my 7th grade science teacher. Sure, sometimes when he explains things i don't get it but that is life. And when he answers questions he doesn't answer my questions with a question he is a great teacher team Mr. Lasselle

Just wanted to add : Be thankful to have a teacher who allows you to think outside the box. Staying inside a box is tiring, boring AND limits your thinking power. Remember, we live up to our expectations! Mr. L. expects and encourages sparks of genius in every one of his students.He doesn't get obsessed with the right answer; he wants you to figure out a process of finding the right answer through analyzing the situation. He teaches you how to THINK! not memorize.

He and a high school Chemistry teacher are two reasons why my daughter was invited into the Chemistry PhD program at UB before her senior year. After winning a chance to work with a well known UB profesor last summer , there was a letter in her mailbox when she returned home offering free tuition, a "salary" of $26,000, free medical and dental (as a student!). At 21 she helps teach Chemistry to university jrs and seniors.Set high goals,be thankful for a teacher like Mr. Lasselle and take advanta

Very tough class, but I got through it. It's good to have a challenging teacher once in a while because you need to find what gear works for you with different people.

It was tough at first to learn with his teaching style, but in the end it was worth listening to this guy. Challenges your thinking to higher and different levels, and puts some of his personal heart into the material/lab/worksheets. I don't think I'll ever find another great man like him again....

Whoever said that you'd miss him after he's gone is wrong. Mr. Lasselle is the least helpful teacher I've ever met. Most of his assignments in both his Earth Science and regular science class were useless. I barely remember anything from that class except the name of his pet rock... Pierre. Oh, god. Don't get me wrong, he's a smart guy... just an awful teacher.
