May 31, 2013 He knows his stuff....but he doesn't know how to teach it! He talks down to students who don't "get it" and isn't helpful at all. Now that I'm in college, I realize how bad i had it at serra....only good teachers left are carter and stapedog. Flag Rating

May 28, 2013 Willis!!!!
He is most definitely a hard teacher but he helped prepare me for college Chem. He may be a little strict but he is an insanely good teacher. He knows his stuff better than my college professor. If you put time into this class, you will benefit from it, not only from high school, but also later on, down the road. He's also very flexible with office hours and is willing to help anytime. If you don't do well in this class that's your fault because he helps anyone who wants to learn.

Mar 30, 2013 Bad. You don't want this teacher if you want to learn anything. If you already know your stuff in Chemistry and can learn from a textbook, you'll be fine. If you want a teacher that actually teaches....good luck. Flag Rating

Dec 02, 2011 It's the elfin 21st century and this guy can barely open a laptop. The biggest joke is that they keep this guy around in a state of the art technology and science wing. Olllllld school and unless you are his pet, you will pay the price. Flag Rating

May 03, 2007 McCarthy isn't easy, but he is a really nice guy and incredibly interested in Chemistry. He'll tell you not to do something, and if you do it, he'll be more excited to explain why it happened than to punish. He doesn't take crap, though, true. Flag Rating
