There are certain experiences throughout a person's life that significantly alter the way that he/she thinks. AP Physics with Mr. Burns was one of these experiences for me. I could feel the math and logic creep into my brain, expanding it. Worth every sleepless night.

I've had one absolutely standout teacher in each of my 3 years at LGHS. These teacher's differentiate themselves from the rest because they are not only knowledgable and communicate well, but also create a lasting impact on my character value or work ethic. Burns' class was so well taught that my analytical skills improved immensely. His lectures feel like a performance and his expansive knowledge commands respect. I can undoubtedly say that I've matured by taking his class. Normalforcelessness!

Never had a better teacher before. His labs are intriguing, he makes a lot of jokes, and is really nice about giving extensions on assignments.

I really loved Mr. Burns, but it was extremely difficult to keep up. Physics is a really tough course. He sometimes isn't clear and isn't interactive with hw.
