Pretty fun teacher to have. Teaches really quickly, especially during the beginning of the year but makes up for it with a ton of class/regents review. Most people in his class last year did great on the chem regents.

Mr. Kada(money) is the best!! I was so intimidated by the idea of taking chemistry but he made it such an enjoyable class. I genuinely did not mind waking up at 5:30 for zero band( which was only once a week but still), and that's saying something. His jokes will get your abs hurting, but his occasional life story may make you tear up. A pure human. He is very thorough and will prepare you for the regents rigorously. Hands down the best chem teacher in the school.

honestly once you get past his accent, you can understand him but I don't really like his teaching style because he goes so fast and I'm lost all the time. I'm bad enough at chemistry as it is, but he makes it harder for me. and he has mood swings all the time which is really scary. on the plus side, he almost never checks hw (which might be a bad thing in your book idk)

Mr Kadamani is by far one of the worst teachers I have ever had before. Yes, he knows the topic but doesn't know how to explain it properly. He goes through the lessons too quick and expects you to know the material by heart the very next day. His explanations are vague and confusing. The two most frustrating parts are as follows, 1. He starts the new unit without being tested on the old one. I understand some teachers will do one or two lessons tops but sometimes he finishes an entire unit.

Mr. K is one of my favourite teachers! He seems scary at first with his accent and style of teaching but if you open up to him you will see how amiable and caring he truly is. He will tell you war stories and about his running career, andsometimes he will give you motivational speeches to help you do well in life, which I'm truly grateful for. He makes really funny jokes, and he teaches the material very fast but gives lots of class time for review. Use that time wisely and you will ace the TAST

-nice guy
-funny
-good heart
-picks favorites and it's very obvious
-you will know very well if he doesn't like you
-cannot teach at all
-goes through everything very fast and has unclear, sloppy notes
-very unfair at times
-anyone who tells you they learned a lot of chemistry from him is lying, he sucks at teaching
EVERYONE, BUY A REVIEW BOOK AND USE IT. IT WILL HELP U AND TEACH U. the minimum notes he does give is just the exact same thing as the review book

I failed the regents because of his inability to teach. All he does is read the review book to us in class and write stuff on the board for us to copy without explaining anything. One of the worst teachers I have ever had, in terms of preparation for the test. If you take his class, prepare to learn everything there is to know about ISIS and Al-Qaeda, not chemistry. Good luck, you're going to need it.

Mr. K's one of my favorite teachers, if not my favorite, in the school. He is one of the most inspiring and motivational people I know. He genuinely cares for each and every one of his students and is more for the learning experience than the grade you get. Mr. K is hilarious yet will prepare you for the regents. He knows the material by heart and clearly has experience in the field.

Utterly devoid of knowledge. I'd say he's the worst teacher in the school except calling him a teacher is an insult to teachers. He does not know chemistry. Most of what I learned was from the book and my classmates during group activities. You will learn a lot about Lebanon and his jokes are funny because he tell them with his accent. Unfortunately, the history of Lebanon is not on the chemistry regents.
