The tests were insanely hard and I didn't learn as much as I hoped to in this class. I also was not crazy about Mr. Chrispeels himself.
Worst teacher ever. Made me not like bio. We literally did nothing in his class. Should not be able to teach. Instead of teaching he made us watch crash course videos made by other teachers. He is not a fair grader.
SUPER LAYED BACK... Easy Class!
I had Chrispy for AP Bio and he was one of the coolest/nicest teachers I've ever had. He is truly passionate about teaching and sciences but he tends to have trouble keeping students' attention which is why some students struggle in AP Bio. As long as you pay attention and study I don't see how you can't get at least a B.
ap bio was the stupidest class i've ever taken. although i got a b, i learned nothing. chrispeels is really cool and nice, but most of the class is memorization. if you want a grade booster, take it, but i learned literally nothing and a lot of the assignments are just busy work. i would just take AP chem (where you might do poorly, but at least you'll learn something) and take bio in college.
I had Mr. Chrispeels waaay back in the day when he was at La Presa Middle school. He gave me my first and only referral because I put an ink-soaked marshmallow in my mouth after he specifically told me not to. BUt he was definitely my favorite teacher that year. I had fun and learned a lot too. I wonder if he remembers me?
HARD class, but awesome teacher. he is super cool and chill
Best bio teacher ever! His explanations are helpful and intuitive and he will help however he can to get you to understand. Thank you for all the great work Arno!
he is so funny and such a great teacher. people compain that they dont learn anything but then get a 5 on the ap test so he really is doing a great job!
GREAT Ap Bio teacher! He explains things well and gives fantastic, memorable examples! He also truly wants all his students to succeed! He's a hilarious guy and his stories are amazing!
Doesn't explain things very well and I often have to teach myself all the material. He's a funny guy/good teacher otherwise.
sickest teacher ever. always looked forward to the class and his stories as long as u pay attention to his lectures ur all good
Wow, i actually like biology because of him! Hes really funny, and is a really chill guy. He really triess to make the class fun, and most of the time, i find it works. GO MR. CRISPY!!
Mr. Chrispeels is very helpful and quick to respond. Seems to work well with students. We are please that our son is in his class.
he is a good teacher but sometimes he is BORING. but i love his stories. they are really funny
hilarious teacher. gotta love him. his stories are just so funny, and his class is great!
Funniest teacher around. Made me want to become a Biology major
i love this teacher. becuz of him, i love bio and will major in it in college. he is totally fun, and makes the class seem very interesting. He makes APBio a snap. You'll never get bored of him.
Arno was the best. He showed us all how to make home made explosives with simple chemical compounds, as taught to him when he was a young apprentice at La Jolla High School with Mr. Poirier...Hooray!
I LOVE THIS MAN......Hes very understanding and is there to help you with anything. He makes class fun with his awesome sense of humor....do the work...its not very hard and he dosn't ask to much. Im gonna miss him.
he's amazing and knows what he's talking about, you can't bail on his class every moment is hillarious and even the notes are interesting. join his fanclub on myspace!!!!!!
chrispeels is hella chill. class would be boring without him.
He's so funny! He spent a whole lab period making michael jackson jokes! I love AP Bio!
Ridiculously easy class...he makes you coffee and you can listen to Marley...good luck studying for the AP cuz he doesn't help much
Such a cool guy... do your work and you'll get an A. And ask for help if u don't get something, he's always there to help
great teacher... cool labs/ boring lectures (except once he dressed up as Darwin whcih was very cool) overall a good teacher
Possibly one of the best teachers at PHS. He is very helpful and knows all about Biology. I Highly recomend his AP Bio at PHS.
Chrispyfish is cool! Knows his stuff, will explain it 20 diff ways until the class gets it. Does ok job preparing for AP test...covered 1/2 material week be4...
what a sweet guy who tells me how to make different acidic acids and some explosives every now and then
He's chill man... I totally get what he talks about.
Wat's up w/ this spring break project, it's really really really annoying, and it requires you to research completely outside the topics you're assigned to.
