Mr. Richard is an extremely well informed teacher and makes sure his students know the material very well. HIs lectures are a bit boring at times but for the most part engaging. His class is much like a college level and the most beneficial outcome I would say is learning how to write well. My writing skills vastly improved and I am thankful for that. He doesn't really show much emotion and rarely smiles, but that doesn't mean his class isn't a great one.
he knows what he talks about but fails to engage
Never seen this man smile. Seems like he enjoys Geometry more than History.
Quite frankly, this guy knows his stuff and is very articulate in his lectures but they are soooo boring! He doesn't make an attempt to engage his students at all and just enjoys babbling about history. However, despite being awfully mundane, his lectures are clear.
Honestly, he is quite rude and disrespectful to students and makes us feel hated and disliked. He is very condescending and really does not make his students confident in their ability. He could try and be more encouraging.
peasants didn't storm the Bastille!
partners, partners, partners.... partners here, partners, partners....
Good teacher with a weird sense of humour (if any at all). Very knowledgeable and will totes get us through IB exams. And he's engaged!!
Seems to hate every student, but is very knowledgeable.
Wish he would acknowledge students who say hello or greet him. His personality needs an adjustment....for the better!
He is the best teacher I've had at B-CC. hands down.
His quizzes are easy, but you have to know dates when it comes to the test!
It's amazing how much he knows off the top of his head but IB History is really hard.
very aloof but sooo smart you will learn and you will READ ALOT in IB
dont take his class if you arent a good reader and dont like history the class is actually taught at a higher level
love his expressions. Get on his good side and your gaurenteed a B

Mr. Richard is awesome, and his stories about his past are amusing. Great teacher.
This man is living proof that first impressions can be deceiving! He's an extraordinary teacher despite the impossiblity of his class. And yes i invented a word
intoxicated with his own voice. incapable of writing a test without three typos in every question. expects everyone to have memorized the textbook like him.
his classes aren't for slow people. i don't care how hard you work. you either get it or you don't. his ib class was my hardest. prepared me for college.
simply put, slow learning students shoudnt be in IB and that why he doesnt reach them. their presence is detrimental to our learning,
Awesome teacher with a sense of humor (most people just don't pick up on it). Really knows what he's teaching and gives you AWESOME prep for the IB exam.
Mr. Richard is an excellent teacher that teaches IB classes ... if a student falls behind its not Richards fault because IB courses are for college prep
Mr.Richard is an awesome teacher. You have to be willing to work and learn to love his class, but he is an AMAZING teacher.
A really good teacher. People fear his class cause it's hard, but you learn a lot. i didn't even have to study for the final!
One of my favorite teachers: intelligent, very funny, and though his class isn't easy... you'll actually learn something!
this guys KNOWS his stuff. And he's hilarious (once ya get used to him).
Gotta love the pointy boots! Smart guy, but too full of himself, enjoys powertrips over students, obsesive over total silence during morning announcements.
I think that people don't give him enough credit. He's a very good teacher and knows what he's talking about. He also prepares you for college very well. He does come off as being arrogant sometimes but I think he's a really good teacher.
Underrated. Personable. Enjoys teaching. Solid part of the social studies dept.
THE worst teacher I have ever had. Picks on people he doesn't like to make himself feel good.
