I had him for E and S he was awesome in that class. I have him this year for astro. I cant wait. Although he usually gives alot of easy work he is by far the coolest, laid back guy ever. I have never seen him get mad

seems nice but is not at all; very hard class; dont let him tell you its "just like physics"; test questions come out of nowhere; his classroom is just not a pleasant environment

nice guy! Makes the classroom atmosphere casual, and is never patronizing. My only criticism is: a lot of the work he gives us is not helpful, just busywork.

Easy earth space teacher but a hard Astronomy teacher. I didn't have a problem with him but he made the Astro class really hard. Nice guy and doesn't get mad.

Mr. P is a fun, laid back teacher. Class gets pretty boring at times, and he doesn't have a very exciting teaching technique. Lots of movies, some are especially boring, some are interesting. Maybe just some more interactive teaching methods and more h

mr p's awesome. astronomy is really hard but he makes it understandable and lots of fun. we have popcorn, the guitar, spirit fridays and lots of visits from other hallway teachers (like mr. carroll on the pogo stick today) that make astro fun

pappy's a cool dude. sometimes astronomy gets ridiculously abstract and he can't explain things. blocks are a killer.

Just a note, i think his name is spelled wrong. Anyway, he's a great guy. By far one of the best teachers i've ever had. Although i occasionally fall asleep (during videos only), he's the only teacher i have that actually lets me drink a coke in class.
