Mr. C was by far one of the best teachers I've ever had. His lectures were engaging and you could tell he had a very strong compassion for biology. Extremely helpful for the AP test.

Spends way too much time on his IBET project for Riverbend. Which can be summarized as a waste of time. Also, always finding the class behind the other Biology classes.

very nice, understanding, fair, and helpful teacher. makes sure you learn right and really cares about you and your grades. also very dedicated to biology himself. if you know the subject, tests are easy, otherwise they're a bit hard. easily able to pass the class if you read the book and pay attention in class. spends too much time with riverbend (ibet project) and sticks to the book too much. covers less than other teachers, but more in depth. overall, still really awesome!! :)

had ap bio with him. cool guy to talk with and is reasonable about due dates and such. however, watch out for some of the quizes he writes-they quiz on some ambiguous details(ie what was the picture in the beginning of the chapter) yep. those were annoying.

Mr. Charnitski is so devoted to teaching--he really cares about the students understanding the information. Granted, his class is really tough, but you get what you work for. In the end though, you will learn so much, the extra work is worth it.
