one of the best teachers at foothill
By far the best teacher at Foothill! Every day is entertaining, and if you put the effort in you really learn about the subject. It is possible to recover in the class if you start of shaky, you just need to ask for extra help. If your grade needs a boost, ask him if you can build a massless rigid rod for extra credit, totally saved my grade!
He is like my grandpa, expect his stories are actually good, like the one about the fish.
This man is absolutely insane, but also absolutely amazing. By far one of the hardest classes I've ever taken, but it's not impossible to get an A in regular physics. AP Physics is another story... :(
Let me start off by saying one thing. Mr. Gibbons believes that a man without morals is like a fish without a bicycle. You know what he does for fun? NOTHING. His last name is "Gibbons", which is a type of monkey. The class would be so boring if it wasn't for a special student in his class who I'm not going to mention by name(Pranav). It's ok though. From now on, I'm going to turn over a new leaf and treat him like the respectful teacher that he is.
A very vindictive man.
Call him gibbby he likes it. Very experienced and knows what he's talking about. Dedicated to teaching and helping students despite working in industry before. Most of all, makes a traditionally boring subject very fun and interesting.
Mr. gibbons is one of few teachers at foothill that is both entertaining and a good teacher. he is my favorite teacher this year and my best teacher this year. he makes you want to pay attention in class and knows what he is talking about. he can be kinda hard sometimes but he is always fair. his test are kinda hard but if you pay attention in class you will be ok. he is honestly funny and a good teacher, you will learn alot
This guy is a straight G. This is the best teacher i have had ever. He is really funny and is enjoyable for everyone.
Gibbons asked my class what was so special about today (Start of the NFL season)
Gibbons calls us a bunch of communists.
Hands Down a fantastic teacher! Very knowledgeable and seems very devoted. Although, I personally find him hard to approach one on one for help.
MR. GIBBONS... I'm just writing this on here because I feel like you'd check this. Since we're in the unit about light waves and color right now, you should discuss The Dress with us. Is it something you can explain? I assume you know what The Dress is, but if you don't, it's not hard to search it up and see.
For eveyone looking it up yes he is vindictive lol
Amazing teacher though. Honestly one of the best at Foothill. His physics class was challenging but amazing
Super Cool Teacher, From experience... do not break his demos. Other than the fact that i got on his bad side, he is by far a great teacher.
Great teacher hard class
Mr. Gibbons is an entertainer. He takes a boring subject and makes it exciting with his demos and flamboyant personality. His stories are amusing, yet they still have valuable life lessons. His tests and HW/labs are identical, so it's a pretty easy A
my favorite mr. gibbons quote: i am a vindictive man, look it up on ratemyteachers.com
He is such a fantastic teacher! Although I found his class to be difficult, it was the BEST class I ever took. Definitely take this class while at Foothill, it is worth every second!
Mr.gibbons was funny, and energetic, and he knew what he was talking about.. Buuuuutt, he's so focused on his demonstrations and story telling that his instruction period is very limited. He'll do a max of 3 problems on any given day, and most of the time, its only upon a students request. His "lessons" mostly involve summarizing his word documents he puts on the board, so that part isnt very engaging or helpful. Plus he plays mindgames with the students. His tests are very difficult as well.
BY FAR THE BEST TEACHER I HAVE EVER HAD, NO EXAGGERATION. he teaches well, and is super funny, cool, chill, nice, and smart and will help you with life, not just with school. he is seriously the best teacher everrrrr. if you have him, enjoy!
Mr. Gibbons is very entertaining and funny; however, his normal physics class is too hard. If you want an A i suggest you switch out to Newb.
He makes the learning experience so much fun and he is very creative. However, his Physics class is extremely hard, but it's still worth staying in that class.
Sooo he's hilarious but mean I don't care at all.. I think it's funny.. Just sayin he's got nicknames up the yin yang and says a nicknames only good if the person doesn't like it nut that's not a nick
Mr. Gibbons is probably one of the greatest teachers I've had. His tests are definitely the hardest, but by the time they come around you're definitely prepared. Added bonus: he's absolutely hilarious
Best teacher in my life! Wants you to succeed. Very hands on teaching style. Such a fun class and lots of laughs. You will learn a lot. But you need to pay full attention. Tests are definetely hard.
Great teacher. Love the demos and dedicated to helping kids. Makes class interesting and very intelligent as well. Love this guy right here can't wait to have him for AP Physics senior year
Gibbons totally pwns. He is basically the smartest and funniest guy in the world and he knows what he is talking about!
very cool teacher. kinda hard but he always keeps you interested...very cool demos.
he's funny, but he's hard!! i wish i had newb; i could have gotten an A in that class.
Even though AP physics is one of the hardest classes ever, Gibbons still makes it fun, and he teaches it very well.
i have him this year, he's HILIARIOUS but i think it's kind of hard to understand him though. he'll help you if you have questions.
Probably the only good physics teacher, he really understands what he is talking about, and explains well, while being funny at the same time.
great teacher. One of the few that can have fun and teach.
Great teacher, best Physics teacher at Foothill. Always there to help and he's got AWESOME demos. But jokes around a lot. Sometimes fun, but can be hurtful - especially if you're a sophomore...
He is the best teacher ever! I thought it was lickiss, but gibbons is just awesome.
He's really nice and super funny! Can get offtract sometimes-- but his stories are always hecka funny. Tests can be hard. But basically he's amazing. :-)
Gibbons is awesome! He is a great teacher and really wants his students to exceed. He is very helpful and does a ton of cool demonstrations. Tests are hard tho so do the work.
I don't know how anyone could not enjoy Gibbons' class
I LOVE HIM. Hard class, but worth it. He's awesome. Take his class to see THE CHAIIIIIIN & learn about Sausage & what he does with used dry erase markers! Stories&Demo Days=Awesome
He's a lot of fun and great to look at. I would recommend him because of his stories 2
By far the coolest person I've ever met in my life! He helped me so much through the year especially when i had to miss a lot of school! Very challenging. Love him.
WOW mr gibbons is incredible!!! he made class so much fun!! i love going to his class. he is challenging but sooo awesome. --coolest guy ever.
his tests are hard, so you need to really pay attention in class. but he's one of the funniest and helpful teachers i've ever had.
Ya. The stories make class all worth it. He's sometimes not quite so prepared for AP but knows his stuff pretty well.
Funny guy, his stories made class fun even if the subject (physics) wasn't for me. Tries to help students out.
gibbons is awesome. those of u who don't like him, i can take your opinion in2 consideration i hear you and i know what you are saying don't call me ill call u
Very difficult to try and understand, plays favorite with the brainiacs...very defensive and vindictive if questioned..scary personality!
Very cool teacher. You muct take his class and learn the serects of The Chain and The Fish . Great demos, class was enjoyable.
One of the greatest teachers ever! Such an awesome guy! :)
Great teacher. Makes class fun. Gotta love the demos.
