Has some trouble properly explaining assignments. Like often times they're hard to find the instructions for, or he doesn't go over them as well as he could. Nice guy, tough, funny and understanding.

Mr. Fillman is absolutely one of my favorite teachers I've ever had. He knows exactly what he's doing and really wants you to succeed. His tests may be tough and he may talk a lot, but as long as you pay attention you will love his class. He's very funny, easy going, understanding, and not very strict either. He loves his students, and while he's not up in front, he'll treat you like a friend and explain things until you understand. I totally recommend Mr. Fillman!!!

Clearly has favorites, if you aren't one of them and you ask him to sign an advisory pass or something like that, he'll give you a look and ask you what it's for in a smart tone. And instead of helping in class, he just talks to the popular kids. If you aren't on track and you aren't a girl, you are absolutely nothing to Mr. Fillman..... He is still fun during lectures though, and keeps a good high energy during class.

His lessons are pretty clear and even if you dont't understand the material he will help you through it. As other rating have said he does pick favorites and makes it very clear who he likes and dislikes. Overall he's pretty cool though.

Mr. Fillman is a good person but is unfair when it comes to the education of some people. He has favorites and makes it extremely clear that he does. Like someone said above, he likes, talks, and helps the more athletic, "popular" people. The class itself is a good class if you want to challenge yourself and if you're willing to sacrifice hours of your time to this course. My only problem with the class is Mr. Fillman and the way he teaches.

He made me love biology when I took it freshman year! He's really funny and outgoing and I love his lab coat ^_^ sometimes his lectures are very fast, but I personally liked the challenge! He interacts well with the students and is very strange but in a good way! Was one of my favorite high school classes, miss it so much! :(

He's extremely knowledgeable but goes through courses and topics quickly and expects the students to know it themselves. A lot of people, including me, don't understand a whole lot. Most went to the extreme and got themselves tutors for that class because they weren't understanding the way Mr. Fillman taught. If you're the type of person that likes difficult challenges and is willing to go out of your way and giving a lot of extra time to this class, take it.

Great teacher- explains everything very well, assigns reasonable amounts of homework that actually benefits your learning, and does very helpful lectures. But picks favorites- so get on his good side.

I feel like Fillman has favorites and doesn't know when to stop joking. Have seen him make people cry, even if he is just teasing. Over all good teacher, but his tests are very challenging.

Mr. Fillman is a great teacher. Everything that is on the exams are covered in his lectures, so the people who complain about hard exams are the people who don't pay attention in class. He also has good study guides for exams too. He tries to connect with every student, and is very funny and somewhat "crazy". Funnest teacher ever.

He would always try to be with the kids who stood out for their popularity, not the ones who needed help or were smart.

he's a cool teacher, and i suppose that balances out the fact that his class is hard. there are a lot of concepts to remember in biology, and he usually just throws information at you and it can be ha
