Mr. Bates was not a good teacher. He would ramble on about the same thing the entire class (usually unrelated to the content we were supposed to be learning). He would also make jokes that weren't even funny and would keep trying to explain them because he was confused as to why nobody was laughing. I had him for non-AP psychology- The tests were easy (open-note), but I would not reccomend Bates at all. He just wasn't in touch with his students (i.e. he wasn't very relatable). BORING.
best teacher ever. learned so much, my favorite class!!
Class is entertaining, very enthusiastic. Forgets he has said some things already. Same stories over and over. Very very easy.
