Mr.Bethem was my honors biology teacher and was very bad at explanation. He answered questions with a sarcastic untrue answer leaving student very confused. He is a nice guy but for a teacher wouldnnot recommend. He does not teach the material needed to know for homework and test. Students of other honors biology classes knew more through out the entire year and had to help the rest of us make it through the week.
Mr. Bethem is a terrible teacher. Most of the time he gets off topic either telling personal stories or making fun of students. Every time you ask him a question he either tells you to read the textbook or answers the wrong question. It is basically impossible to get an A on anything. An 88% is the highest grade I've gotten in his class.
Mr. Bethem is a good guy, but a TERRIBLE teacher. He told our class he failed pre-med AND Organic chemistry. He's also a psych major? What was Hudson thinking?
Mr. Bethem is an unorganized, unethical and poor teacher. In my opinion and the opinion of my classmates he should be fired. He refuses to help his students. I have little to no respect for this teacher. Comments he makes to students are unprofessional. I have never met a teacher that has made me so irritable and upset. Crying is a common thing to happen after class.
You need to read your textbook to understand the material. His lectures are confusing & he does not like questions. He is a sexist. He referred to the Feminist group as the "Slut Club"! Amazing that he can say such things and keep his job. If he referred to an African American group as "the N...ger Club," I beleive he would be fired. He should not be allowed to teach girls w/ his obvious bias and misogynistic views. Even if you are not female, try to get moved to another teacher for Biology.
Mr. Bethem is a teacher that you can't mess around with. He gets angry when students don't understand the material and I always had to go home and relearn the stuff. If you study really hard at home he should like you but don't mess around with him he takes everything seriously.
Hey Mr. Bethem, a probablly future/current students. Mr. Bethem is a decent guy, but his teachings and student interactions are too casual. He expects everyone to understand what he is saying, and expects everyone to take him as a student. As a result, he becomes very confusing sometimes and difficult to understand. So, I would suggest reading the material over by yourself as it probablly would make more sense if you teach yourself.
Mr. Bethem isn't a bad person nor is he a bad teacher. He is simply not as good as others. I find my self trying to study for tests and having close to emotional breakdowns because I don't understand anything that is occurring in the class. It's not just me however, many of my classmates and friends belive so too. He's a good person but a very sub-par teacher.
He is very confusing!!! THE ONLY THING HE SAYS IS "I didnt go to college to learn that" and all that stuff! he is rly nice and caring but can be mean when he wants and is kinda scary and intimidating.
going into his class is like playing Russian roulette, ittle ether be fun and interesting... or you will be dead. I don't know where I was going with this comparison but over all a fairly good teacher (Besides the tests).
Worst teacher I've ever had. If you are a current student, I am so sorry
HE'S THE WORST TEACHER I HAVE EVER HAD. I apologize to anybody who will have Mr. Bethem in the future, not only does he single students out, share and advertise his personal beliefs, but he also talks about students, and compares classes! Ridiculous!
He is a very nice person in general and one if my fav teachers. Just don't have u phone in class and he doesn't answer questions that often.
wassup bethem how are you doing? This guy is the best teacher in the world. How was Mexico? From Sam Ricard
I've liked Mr.Bethem as a person and teacher for the majority of the school year, but now I honestly wouldn't mind if he were to magically fall down ten flights of stairs. Although he's already closer to the ground than anyone I know so I'm not sure how much falling would do for him.
Yao wassup mr bethem! my dudeeeeeeee -Jake Krone (yao)
Mr. Bethem is a great teacher and he knows his stuff and if you know your stuff the class is pretty easy and you'll be liked by him and have a good time.
He is not a bad teacher but a total jeck. He also litaly said I dont like you to a student in my class. I leaned most of it but had a terribol time.
He was not very likable. I would ask him a simple question and he would degrade the question by being very specific in his answer ex. Student:What is the size of a male termit? Teacher:Well it depend
If you read and do the questions, then the class is a breeze. The study guides online are very long, but if you know them all, you know everything on the test. He can be harshly sarcastic.
Mr.Bethem is not only a great teacher, but a very interesting and kind person. Whenever I had any questions in biology (I always had a ton) he would thoroughly explain to me every single one until I u
He is actually very smart and a great teacher. He should be a bit more helpful, but honestly he talks about everything. Just pay attention and do the homework, he basically is just a fair teacher.
Mr. Bethem is a good teacher. You have to study and do your homework to do well. I still visit even when he's busy. Great teacher. Just don't ask stupid questions or say "I don't get it."
i agree about the sarcasm, and although his teaching is good, the other biology classes have grading much easier
Although he may be a very entertainingly sarcastic teacher, his sarcasm is sometimes very degrading and undermines a students confidence in themselves. He is an overall okay teacher.....
His class is a breeze. Just make sure to study the night before tests.
Yeah, his jokes are pretty lame. Gets off topic sometimes or goes on waay too long. He collects labs three weeks after we do them, and I tend to just forget about them or forget to finish them. And
Awesome teacher, you will learn a lot if you just keep at it.
Great teacher all around. Tests are not that hard if you study. Class is very fun as well as informative. Best bio teacher at the school.
He must have done something right. I'm in college learning about genetics, and I still remember what we learned in the genetics unit, especially Mendel's Peas.
Awesome teacher. Makes everything easy to understand. Tests are a breeze if you study hard. If you don't study, good luck.
This class made me work hard, unlike some of my other classes.
Mr. Bethem is awesome. That pretty much sums it up. You can join his Facebook fanclub at "THE OFFICIAL Mr. Bethem Fan Club." Have fun! P.S.: Fermentation is awesome too. --EGX
Mr.Bethem is the best teacher.Throuhout the year he helped me with not only biology but with some personal problems. Have a good break Mr.Bethem
Mr. Bethem was a great teacher, he actually taught the subject unlike my chemistry teacher (Mr. Bethem knows who), and he didnt give EC for BS like Sheldon who shoudn't be teaching in a HS. Viva Bthm
He is way too political and teaches certain biology issues with left wing bias.
Mr. Bethem was pretty cool. I felt that the class was pretty easy, as were his tests. His sarcasm was pretty funny too. He did threaten to hunt me down if I didn't take Chemistry. . .
Mr. Bethem is a good teacher and i actually learned some stuff during the year. He is confusing though, I got an a+ in his class but he says that i dont participate and i have inconsistint effort
Bad teacher, you ask him a question after reading the book he says read closer. He never helps you understand anything you don't understand. He can't accept the that sometimes you just don't get it.
very interesting teacher. learned a lot and learned to be more independent although he was not always nice. its nice cause he tells u like it is. but his sarcasim got very old very fast.
Mr. Bethem is the coolest teacher ever! Hes really funny and he helps you out if you dont get it. I love the fermentation song =)
He was such a great teacher. I actually learned alot, and his jokes were kinda funny
Mr. B is purty cool. The class is easy to pass if you do your hw. quizes are only worth 5%. But he never shoots marshmallows in my class!!! ): You shold start doing that Mr. Bethem.
he was the best bio teacher b/c he got through all the material, but his sarcasm was dry and many people did not appreciate his immature acts to try and relate to the students (marshmellow gun)
Mr. B is such a good teacher! The class was good, and I actually learned stuff... that I still remember. If your stupid and you didn't pay attention, that is why you get marshmellows shot at you.
I find it amusing that Mr. B is replying to his raters ;) Anyway, he was a cool teacher. Great personality and sense of humour. As long as you listened and did your homework, you should've been fine.
He was kind of annoying and thought he was a high school student.
Mr. Bethem is THE MAN. my class was awesome with him. we had alot of fun. Just do the homework and the labs and there is no way to fail. great class
mr. bethem is the coolest teacher i have ever had. i had him for ecology and study hall. mr. bethem rocks even when he forgets to set his alarm
mr. bethem is annoying and pompous. he is obsessed with the fact that he is a teacher. to succeed in his class you have to pretend to like him, which is hard
Mr. Bethem rocks...his class is so much fun and so is he
uhh the continous head movements and his continous change of voice and tepmerment (ie all of a sudden just like throw pencils across the room cuz hes mad)
Yeah Bethem! Now that Ive been gone, Im sure thats enough time to start to miss me... right?

Mr. Bethem was a good teacher, even though he was really hard and hated me.
Mr. Bethem is DA BOMB! Those of you complaining obviously did nothing in class so it is your own fault. He makes his class hard so next year won't be as hard.
Bethem is the COOLEST!!!!!!!! He is really nice and very funny.
bethem rocks! Ask him to do an impression of a vacuum.
What a teacher! I loved the Far Side cartoons... He's still one of my favorites, and I haven't had him since freshman year.

Mr. Bethem is the man, he's hilarious and one of the most sarcastic guys i know.
