Pros
+ Still likes you even if you bomb a test
+ Offers chocolate bars upon receiving the highest grade(s) on a test in the class
+ Very nice and offers help during lunch and after school
+ Very knowledgeable and does everything he can to fuel students' passion and enthusiasm
Cons
- He posts his notes onto edline, so that may be a crutch for certain students (Students don't learn to take good notes and discourages textbook reading)
- His handwriting looks like Egyptian hieroglyphics

I love Mr. Slattery! He has made physics very interesting and interactive for me. He is willing to help you with questions and overall a nice guy. No matter how I did on the chapter tests or the AP Physics exam, Slattery will still like me :)

I don't even know where to begin for his handwriting--it's literally the worst handwriting I've ever had to read. Every day I'm sitting in class just wondering what the heck he's writing; I don't understand why he can't just type out his notes instead of forcing us to decipher his stuff. He's awkward, but an overall nice guy. If only his handwriting wasn't so hard to understand.

I had his AP Physics and I have to say he is one of the best teacher I've ever had! He always put his heart in teaching and being really helpful. Physics is generally a hard class especially AP, but he is very willing to help you if you have any problems . His test has just about 7-8 questions, and 80% are similar to these he gave to you in the practice questions, but the rest 1-2 questions are challenging.(AP phy only) If you really worked on the HW and practice tests you should be fine!

I was having a hard time understanding physics and his hand-writing at first, however Mr.Slattery was always willing to help and made sure we really understands. I love the packet he gave us, it is basically the summary and the less complicated version of the whole chapter. Make sure to pay attention in class, because if you miss something, you will be lost for the rest of chapter.

I LOVE Mr. Slattery. Nicest man on campus. Physics is a rather hard class though. Especially if you take AP. Both classes require studying and a lot of effort. He is a great teacher. He is very interactive with the students and puts 100% into everything he does. His happiness is contagious and he always has a smile on his face. I recommend his class to everyone. You're missing out if you don't get the chance to know him. Great man!!!

you guys won't realize how good of a teacher he is until you get into college physics. the profs here don't teach and im basically relying on the material that slattery taught me and im glad i remember some. he isn't very clear at teaching but does have good methods and strategies at solving problems. just appreciate him.

I honestly try very, very hard to like Mr. Slattery, but it seems that he tries very hard, but just cannot teach well. His lessons are boring, and he speaks in a monotone. Also, sometimes, I think he gets a little too involved in our personal lives. He's a great person, has a very strong passion for teaching, but just can't teach very well.

He is a very interesting teacher and will definitely inspire you no matter what goals you are trying to achieve. However, he is a tough teacher so expect to try your hardest.

I like Slattery but I don't consider him as good of a teacher. He is a good mentor by all means but his grading system, especially those involving projects, is greatly flawed. A guy who is too optimistic about everything cannot see the struggle that students may have with each other. By all means, I love Slattery but he should change his lesson plans.

very willing to help students and has a very good personality, but as far communicating the material effectively so students understand crystal clear, leaves much to be desired. Does have a fairly difficult time making all the students understand and can be a bit confusing in class sometimes. Don't blame him, though, considering that physics is a pretty confusing subject anyways.
