Blaine Bowers was a teacher most students think of the wrong way. I was in 8th grade 2 years ago with him and I found him to be a teacher who wasn't so great in the present, but now i look back and he was not bad. He really taught me self direction which helped tons in high school and you know what, if you have him you'll be ok.

Mr. Bowers is a very strange fellow. He is confusing, and his exams are near impossible to prepare for due to his lack of a study guide. He will not even tell you how to prepare. Overall, he is a pathetic and useless teacher and I hope someday that he acts like a normal teacher. My parents and neighbors all know his name from their children complaining, and it just goes to show how infamous he is. -5 stars.

I think Mr. Bowers is a really bad teacher becuase he choses favorites and he only cares about your popularity... If you talk once in the class he will hate you forever unless you have lots of friends at lunch and he knows your status.... He also doen't know what he is teaching and works off of a powerpoint that his co teacher makes. I think is teachers aid knows more then he does.... good luck if your in his class...

His class is tough at times, but he always helps me. Even though he seems to be tough, he really is fair. I dont' know why people say that he's mean, he's not. I love his jokes during class to! :)

He teaches well if you study, but he talks SO slowly and his hand motions are very distracting. He's just...uncomfortable to be around.

Bowers shows disrespect to all of his students and also shows no interest in his work. He is never happy and never helps out any students. SMS can really do better without him.

He's not so much scary as a raging incompetent. He dumps pages of busy-work on his class. He's like a movie-esque-inspirational-strict-but-fair teacher minus any knowledge.
