Good teacher & great friend, truly a gem in a dilapidated public schooling system. Looks out for his students even when the administration is bearing down. Also was fine with us putting a polaroid of us next to his family on his wall so that says a lot about his commitment to the students.

Mr. Williams is the best teacher I've ever had. Although he sometimes gets off-track when telling stories, they always relate to psychology and therefore are really engraved in my mind. He makes his class relevant to what's going on in a teenager's mind and doesn't pretend to be oblivious or ignore the problems we face. Not only is he good at what he does, he's a genuinely good person outside of the classroom. Mr. Williams and his class are some of the only things about La Canada I will miss.

Such an inspirational teacher. He takes his job so seriously and is so genuine in his passion for teaching and students. He manages to teach the subject very well, while also making it very interesting. Those who are taught by Mr. Williams are very lucky and will forever be inspired by his warm personality and hilarious egotistical side. While he can be funny when needed, he can also be serious when needed. He is the best and most relatable teacher, so don't be afraid to become his buddy.

Mr Williams is a great teacher! I had him for regular psych this year and inspired me to have a psychology major in college! Thank you mr Williams! However I got a B in his class because I got a C on his final! Not fair!!!

He's an egotistical tool, and that is why I love him!!! One of THE best teachers I have ever had! Easy to talk to and very helpful. If you are struggling in his class, he will help you and get you through it if you talk to him. Very fun teacher. Unlike that passive-aggressive Huson.

usually all teachers can get side tracked from students really easily, but this guy.... he already has his own stories prepared for us. He knows what he's doing, and its a very entertaining class to be in. Subject matter may be tough, but come on, usually all AP classes have some thinking involved.

Mr. Williams is nice and he tries very hard to do a good job teaching AP Psychology, He is not exceptionally bright and has little in the way of unique insights to offer. The book he uses is very ponderous. I don't believe I am being well prepared for the AP Psychology Test. I will probably hire an outside tudor to better prepare for the test.

If you want to take psychology, I wouldn't advise taking AP. He's clearly a nice guy and knows his stuff, but he takes a lot of his lectures directly from the book and makes us read it, so there's a lot of repeated information.

He is by far my favorite teacher that I've ever had. He is hilarious, teaches his class really well and I am learning a ton in his Psych class. He has so much fun, we always laugh and play games in his class. He really is one of the best teachers out there- and its hard to find a teacher that cares so much about his students.

Makes class fun... but not terribly informative. Psych is like freshman bio all over again, but with a bunch of wasted time. A friend in another school is taking Psych and doing a ton of interesting and hard experiments... While we play X-box in class. I wish it were more challenging, but given that classes aren't perfect, he's a good guy. <3

He tends to go off topic all the time and then expects you to know all of the information. The good thing is that the tests dont count for much.
