Don't take Mr. Trace's physical science class.I had Mr.Trace for 8th grade physical science and he did an AWFUL job & I learned 0 info.I got A's in the class bc Mr. Trace rigged his tests so we wouldn't fail. Now I'm in Biology & studying for my midterm,& I HAVE NO IDEA WHAT IM DOING ALL BECAUSE OF MR TRACE.for the first time ever i genuinely wanted to learn the information but he cant teach. I'm not even in his class anymore but he hurt my grades so much that I needed to share this w others.

Mr. Trace has no clue what he is doing. He steals things from Mr. Clemmons but gets mad at us when we notice. He relies on a kid in our class to basically teach us all. On exams and tests he will keep the answers bolded and think that we aren't smart enough to notice. Even Mr. Clemmons verified this information. Would not recommend as a teacher, 0/10. If you have him, I am so sorry for you because there goes your science grade and your happiness

Mr. Trace is an awful teacher. Period. He cannot teach a lesson without a presentation to right down his script for what he's going to say. He read directly off the board for 43 minutes for 2 semesters. When a student asks him a question, 90% of the time, he'll be clueless about it and put another student on the spot to answer it because he doesn't know it, and is to egotistical to say he doesn't know the answer. The only thing I learned all year was how to put someone in a headlock in 3 seconds

Sounds like George Bush. Makes me so angry i want to cry. I have cried 3 times at least in his class. Calls out shy kids and makes people feel bad. Get a life. Stop finding joy in 8th graders' unhappiness.

He DID NOT teach us anything and assumed that because we are in physical science and gifted we already know everything. When we ask him questions he just waves them away. He steals exams from Mr. Clemmons without teaching us all the stuff on the exams. He doesn't do any of his work its all from Mr. Clemmons. Even the homework is from online or from Mr. Clemmons. 0/10 DO NOT recommend

Mr Trace know a lot about his subject, but he gets off topic a lot and teaches us about stuff we do not need to know at the current moment. This causes many kids to do poorly on their tests and quizzes because we do not spend a lot of time in class learning about the stuff we need to know.

Mr. Trace is one of the most unintelligent teachers i have EVER encountered. He knows little to nothing about science (or English let alone), he has made a racial remark about an asian boy in our class and has trouble not laughing at my accent. His labs are pointless, and if you fall asleep in class he gets really close to your face. He is sometimes biased and what we learned in his class we had to re-learn in high school because he didn't teach it well enough. SOMETIMES he is happy and nice

Mr. Trace puts little effort into teaching. He passes out papers as a way of teaching, instead of bothering to explain it himself. He also has that whole coach thing going for him.
