I had Mr. Dooner back in 2008. My family and I were losing our house, on the verge on homelessness (which happened later). Unfortunately, I had to drop out of high school in order to get a job and help out the family. Mr. Dooner was the only teacher that took me aside and really tried to help me. He begged me to stay in school and to keep trying, and you could tell he was really sad that I couldn't stay. I've never forgotten him. If you're out there Mr. Dooner, I just want to say thank you. -Ben

He made me cry. Not Very good teacher and has really hard tests. Makes fun of people a lot. He gives lots of lectures.

I had to take his class in AP Bio (my least favorite subjects) but because of him, Biology is now in my top 3 favorite subjects. He is one teacher who I think actually made an impact on my education.

I had Dooner for both bio and chem my freshman and sophmore years at Monterey. He was, by far, my most favorite teacher ever.

This guy was an alright teacher. Seems like he has some anger issues, though. I wonder if he got moved out of Monterey High because of something shady that happened

Although Dooner is genius, and genuinely wants to help his students, he loses them often because he's given the bottom of the barrell students and speaks as if he's talking to scholars.
