Worst programming teacher ever. The only way I learned anything in this class was doing extra things at home. In AP he didn't know what to teach us and had us do beginning programs for the entire year. Completely wrong in most things in programming. He picks favourites all the time. If some students are off task he will give detentions, if others are off task he will pretend not to notice. Do not take programming if willis is still teaching.

Mr. Willis is the best teacher I've ever had. I didn't have math with him and he still helped me with it. The only reason I'm taking the upper level in my class is because of him! He is GREAT!!!!!

Mr. Willis is the best teacher for fundamentals in the Math Department, and is wholly deserving of his position as Department Chair. He has a right to be very proud of his hyper-conceptual teaching style that is perfect for Brief Calculus. He is a good Computer Science teacher for the fundamentals, and is very aware of his limitations in higher levels of CS, yielding the floor to knowledgeable students to help lead the more advanced CS classes.

This guy knows his stuff. Pay attention and you will learn tons (and not just about the subject) in any class he teaches. I've had him for two years now and am looking forward to another. Much respect

Mr. Willis is a great teacher. He was very aware to each student and their needs. I like how he's relatable and never "out of reach", always there to help.

Mr. Willis is probably one of the best math teachers at DV. He expects ALOT from his students but he's a great math teacher in return. Reminds me of alec balwin.

Mr. willis is nice and he tries to help, but he never gets the point across. He gets distracted easily and talks more about cooking, camping, and hanging out with his buddy Mr foster. He has favorites

Mr. Willis, well he can be ok sometimes but is horrible at explaning programming. Sure the occasional power point is helpful and the presentations are alright its just that he always picks favorites.

He is a funny guy, but needs to concentrate more on teaching than his students personal life. He needs to teach more than assuming we know everything.
