Mr Kistler is...
...
Interesting.
That's all I can really say about him. Cool guy, but he's a little bit... special.
I recommend getting some ulterior help in the class. If you don't already understand the content, you're going to struggle a lot, because he does a very poor job of explaining things.
If you *do* manage to get on his good side, try and T.A. for him. The free food's nice.

Most of the class we just sit around and do absolutely nothing until he decides to finally get up from his computer and put his top ramen away to "teach". I don't think he actually knows what he's teaching and gets off subject a lot. He makes class very interesting in that sense, but you don't learn anything. He gives random quizzes every class that everyone fails on but he curves it anyways. End of the semester I got a B but he just curved it up to an A because he felt like it. Thanks kistler.

Do not expect to learn anything in that class. I'm pretty sure that when he actually does teach you, he just says whatever comes to his mind. Pretty much and easy A. He gives you 100% even if you don't show up to class.

He is a BAD teacher but his class is basically a free period. No rules, no homework, no sanity. His class made me want to pull my hair out because he never explained what was really on the test.

I had chemistry with Kissler and I was also his T.A, and he is an awesome teacher. People fail because if you don't care, he's not going to waste his time. If you care about your work and actually try

Mr. Kistler will always be one of the most inspirational people in my life. He is a very smart man, but I admire him and his way of teaching not for the chemistry I learned, but for the life lessons

I have had 2 kids both confirm the behavior in this man's classroom. He doesn't teach, he is a buddy, he is lazy with his grades and the majority of his class fails every test.
