agreed. a lot of science teachers at shs arent really good at math so idk how they're science teachers. drennan really knows his physics, just pay attention because sometimes he starts teaching in the
It's a shame he's retiring. Without him, the school is left with only a handful of interesting teachers that actually know their stuff.
THE BEST TEACHER I'VE EVER HAD...too bad he's retiring :(
He's often called "father physics" and not without reason, if you listen in his class you'll learn more than you need to know, he's just a great teacher
Drennan really prepares you in the field of Physics, even though his tests may be hard, it's nothing he doesn't actually cover or teach in class. Most people who take his class slack off and don't pay
He rarely makes any sense when teaching. You end up teaching yourself the material or asking people from other physics classes how to do things. Though you can get away with cheating he's clueless.
Great stories. He does teach! You just have to listen when he goes over homework. The homework is due the day he lectures on the HW's topic. So do the reading.
People either hate or love Mr. Drennan. I personally could not understand the material well enough from him and chose to get extra help from a tutor. His stories are totally irrelevant but funny.
Listen to his lectures and when he goes over homework. It might seem boring, but he actually teaches you everything you need to know. His stories are definitely a plus
Makes great efforts to meet outside of class for extra help and will spend as much time as necessary to explain a concept. The amount of teaching you get is the amount you seek out.
He knows what he's doing and is a good teacher. He can't tell when you're not paying attention so most people don't. If you pay attention the class isn't that hard. Oh, and his stories are awsome
Hilarious guy! But he's not so great at teaching and doesn't necessarily care much about students. Still, he manages to run the class well and get kids to learn physics, so I guess it works!
i don't understand why everyone says he's a bad teacher... just b/c no one cares to listen to him. He actually teaches really well. My favorite class/teacher at the school
I had Bill when I attended Saratoga H.S., class of 1980. He was an excellent teacher. He makes you study... hard work does pay off. Some students don't like it, so it appears....
People cnat stand him cause they cant try. He is very smart knows physics. makes physics interesting. Loves to teach. D Dogg is the man
He's a good guy, and knows his stuff but just doesn't teach any of it. If you go in for help, he'll help you, but it takes a LOT of initiative on your part.
very, very hard... definitely expect to get D's on your tests in ap physics
