When I first got Lisbin, I was a bit on the fence with him. But then again, it wasn't really his fault my class sucked. Either way, he knew all the answers to my questions during my year in Geometry. He is very knowledgeable in all manners of math, explains problems clearly. Also what is helpful that for the final, he is willing to drop either one low test grade or two low quiz grades! Saved my butt a few times XD

I had Mr. Lisbin for Geometry last year and I MISS HIS CLASS SO MUCH!!!! I honestly wish I got him again this year for Algebra 2 because he was great at teaching and extremely helpful. He acts like he doesn't care if you fail his class, but overall he does care because he gives out almost daily reminders of what you need to know for the test and when the test will be. Tests are fairly easy, you just have to review notes and homework. He's strict about his rules, but it's nothing hard to follow.

Mr. Lisbin was such an amazing teacher. I had him for Algebra 2 and he explained things really well and had an awesome sense of humor. >_< I actually wanted to have him teach all my other classes as well lol. There's a reasonable amount of homework. He also does this pretty cool thing during April Fools ;) He's really good at teaching (He's been doing it for a long time) and actually cares about people's grades. I got a high A both semesters.

Had him for Geometry last year and Algebra 2 this year. Teaches well and I can really get along with his teaching style. No, he doesn't really think his strategy is the best. No, he's not really condescending--basically, your method is up to you as long as you got the right answer and know what you're doing. He's actually not easy so work hard!
-: less flexible hours for help compared to last year, he embarrassed me in front of the class twice this year which was not cool of him :(

Mr. Lisbin's Algebra 2 class was the easiest class I've taken at AHS. He's a great teacher and breaks down the material very well. His tests are almost exactly like his worksheets, it's not difficult to get an A in the class considering he has a different grading scale and will give 20 points extra credit if you don't go to the restroom during class the entire semester. I do have one complaint, though. He seems to think that his methods are always the best, it can come off as condescending.

He also has a weird sense of humor...People do bad because they don't try and try to break his rules...

Had him for 9th grade geometry and the class was really easy to understand, got 2 high A's both semesters. The class itself is really boring and i had to try all the time to stay awake butI think it was because he taught it so well that I understood it right away. He was really fair on tests and tried really hard to help us do well on them by giving us study sheets and going over whatever we needed. Also he was funny and had this dry humor. But don't be late or use your phone during class ever.

Mr. Lisbin is a fantastic teacher. He teaches very well although he may be boring at some points. His jokes make the class a little more at ease with his leniency as well. He may make fun of the chatty students, but he really means no harm. This teacher actually truly CARES for the student as a person. If you pay attention and do the homework the class is an easy A. Also, try to actually talk to him and he will become fond of you.

He's awesome when it comes to grading. He'll find every excuse in the book to help you get the highest grade you can possibly get, with the exception that you didn't qualify for the special stuff.

Well... he's a good teacher and as long as you pay attention you pretty much will learn the material. However, if you're sorta smart you may find yourself getting rather bored and start wishing that notes didn't take the majority of the class period, especially if you pick up the material pretty fast. Other than getting bored, he's a good teacher with ok jokes (but they can get old). Just review all the material before the test so you don't forget to memorize a formula.
