He was my forensics teacher. He didn't seem like he knew much. One time he had us work on a project for a while, then when we were done a few people presented theirs, then he just changes his mind and says everyone gets an A. We didn't even turn them in.

To add to my rating, he is no way, shape or form a bad person. He is a genuinely kind person, although sometimes appears as a creepy figure, commenting on how he saw students at their bus stops. He brings in food for his students, a lot of times Dunkin Donuts. But all in all, his teaching is confusing for many. He gives out test answers and half of the class time is spent talking about movies and his connections with "PhD doctors". If you struggle in science, I would recommend switching out.

Mr. Bennett is an interesting character. If you are looking for a class where you do not need to put in effort, then you have obtained it and can stop reading. However, I am one of many students who strives to grasp the concept being taught and try hard to reach the highest grade possible. The first couple of days, he explains how the class is gruesome and to be prepared for a rigorous course. Yet, it is anything but. His smartboard notes are "borrowed" from other school districts on Long Island

Mr.Bennett is probably the nicest person ever! He talks about his life a lot! He atempts teaching but we always get off track! But we still learn. But he's always there to help during tests, get us food, talking to and we still end up doing very well! He's such a smart man

The first day he talked about how this was an intensely difficult course, and then proceeded to do absolutely nothing for the rest of the year.

The worst teacher I have ever had. All he does is talk about his self, very self centered, thinks he knows EVERYTHING.

he relates sci. to our lives and the way he repeats and reviews the information really sticks to me. although he didn't know my name until last week and i'm pulling A's, he's cool.
