LOVE him!!! just do all of the extra credit and bio will be the easiest class you ever have in torrey pines. i listened to my ipod for basically the whole class...he notices but just doesnt really care
i love this teacher!!!! he is really nice and awesomee. pay attention to the discussions cuz thats wut the tests are based on haha i had a 88 in the class and he rounded it up to an A yesss :)
really nice guy, some of the stuff he says is kind of confusing, but otherwise just pay attention in class and it's fine. he really tries to be a good teacher and it shows.
hard to understand him..he is a big mubbler. kinda boring..but he is a nice guy overal. its easy to get lost in his discussions and such. but if u do the workbook and pay attention to the major discussions u should be alright in the class.
Mr.Straitiff was really cool...he mumbles a lot but he was a really helpful teacher...he's a nice teacher!
83 grad & still keep in touch with him, he is one of my favorite teachers ever. If you're interested in bio, he'll support you above and beyond. If going to college, take him.
startiff is really cool i had him for marine bio and field studies. he does mumble so listen and u will be good. i learned alot.
DO THE WORK!! and its easy. if youre a slacker youre screwed. just pay attention, even tho its boring.
best bio teach. intimidating, but def prepared me for ap chem. yull see how much u learn after. PAY ATTENTION TO DISCUSSION!!
ALWAYS mumbles. I can't understands one word that he says. I can't tell if he is stating something or asking a question because his voice is so monotone.
Still a hippy and gets to into science. Gets hard to hear him after a while.
Sure he likes to talk, but Straighty is a man, he dressed up as Eminem when I was a freshman, he is the man, and an outstanding teacher. Thanks Straity.
He was great; I'm a l982 graduate and I still remember (!) his class. Very into-it teacher. Anyone who takes his class is lucky-it will help you in college.
Straitiff puts lots of hard work into his job. He loves teaching. Th eonly problem is he is hard ot understand at times, so you really have to pay attention.
Good teacher! he makes things interesting by not just teaching from the textbook, but actually explaining things.
talks to fast and mumbles..hard to hear, but so easy to pass FS in Marnie bio, but hard to hear..he gets into to much detail, but is a easy A+++
i love mr straitiff!! he's so energetic! i dont get how the class is a joke he teachers us alot!
Talks way to fast. And gets really into what he is talking about. Class such a joke.
He does talk a lot, but it is in the best interest of the students.
this class is such a joke.... he does seem to really be interested in bio though.
