people are upset bc they don't pay attention and expect good grades. He teaches well if you actually pay a morsel of attention. Ignore bad posts below from people who are illerate.

he is the worst teacher i have ever had and not just because he doesn't teach but he contstanly picks on students individually. For the people who are absent when we get a quiz back, he will say their grade on the quiz outloud to the entire class, it is ridiculous. I have not learned anything in his class and wish I would have switched out of his class as soon as the year started. HE DOESN'T KNOW HOW TO PUT IN EXTRA CREDIT ONLINE and so when i turned in my extra credit i got a 2/3 instead of 2/3

I really love being in Mr. Morrow's class. If you take the time to read the chapter he's on & become familiar with the concepts he's teaching, then you'll do great in class. He teaches the main concepts well, but in a rather scattered way.. you have to adjust to his style of teaching. The notes on the board aren't clearly identified so figuring out what's what, is hard. However, he has really helped me when I've been confused & he's very knowledgeable of the subject & the hw assigned is helpful!

It is crazy to believe this guy is actually a science teacher at a great school like Mira Costa. He barely taches any consepts, just stands and lectures all day while throwing in jokes and football antecdotes and picking on students. He doesn't grade anything or give feedback, we don't go over problems. He doesn't use anything with technology or even seem prepared. He just uses his old prepared recycled notes and lectures. He probably has not updated anything in 20 years.

He's a very nice teacher that is very caring and helpful towards his students. He only wants the best for us and would help us with anything and push us and motivate us to do our work and do better. Honestly a great and funny science teacher!

hated this teacher. please switch at any chance you get. he doesn't try at all. there will never be grades posted online or will he give you a straight answer. he gives grades based on your like-ability. he prints off the tests from online where everybody can access them. he doesn't teach 80% of the stuff on the test. so if you want to learn chemistry, switch out or learn it yourself with the book.
