Mr. Ballard was definitely one of the best math teachers I've had at Lakeside. His teaching method is very clear and straightforward.
He's not a horrible teacher, his method just happens to be that in class, instead of helping us get it, he kinda just goes on some random tangent (no pun intended). He is kinda cool, and helps a lil'
Among my math teachers, Mr. Rona was definetly the best. And for Dean Ballard to be my math teacher the year after math 8A means he will be judged unfavorably. To me he's an avg teacher w/a hard class
DEAN BALLARD IS TRES COOL. I agree, my favorite teacher! He made an anti-math person fall in love with Int. Calc! (but the person next to me disagrees.)
