T. Gilligan Brei is probably the most knowledgeable teacher at MVHS. He can explain how formulas are constructed and why they are composed of whatever variables on the spot. The class is hard but more because of the complexity of physics in general and not an inability to educate. He'll answer any question you have on the subject very clearly. In short, he'll do all of the work, save tests and quizzes. He is more well rounded than several other teachers and actually has a clever sense of humor.

Inspiring teacher, makes you love physics. Explanations and demonstrations are spot on. He's also a comedic genius, although the jokes seem to go over everyone's heads. Very personable, but a stick

He was a very good teacher who explained everything in laymen's terms and made physics enjoyable and led me to get a 5 on the AP physics B test. Thanks Mr. Brei!

Really funny cool guy, my favorite teacher ever. Explains the concept in detail and gives study sheets with everything they need to know. Some say he's hard, but physics is just not their bag.

As everyone says, he's a cool guy. He doesn't handle conflict professionally, though. He knows his physics content, but is poor at explaining it. He should attend an inservice on whole-group teaching.

I'm a fan of Todd. It took two years to get him, but once I got his teaching style- "I'll give you an overview, and you can figure it out on your own"- (like college) I really enjoyed the class.

He's a cool and funny guy who knows what he's teaching. However, he sorta assumes everyone knows exactly what he's talking about, which makes some material confusing.

Brei is AWESOME!!!! Try to get in a class with only like 15 people....that's the best. I actually passed the almost impossible AP test because of him...that should speak for itself

He is a cool guy and everything its just that the class is basically impossible. You think you get it then look at the problems on the test and have no idea what to do.

Great guy, not a great teacher for large classes, but if you talk to him individually you'll understand the concepts perfectly.
