For all of you complaining that you have to take notes!?! You are in a college prep school! Guess what you are supposed to learn? Things like taking notes and reading textbooks. He was a decent teacher and smart.
However he get a little too close to the tiny freshman if you ask me.

Bro Larry is hilarious. I learned life lessons in this class and I now know he yells at bears and discovers stuff. All of our classes were spent talking about random stuff and then came the tests. YIKES! He gives 15 multiple choice questions on each test, half of which don't even pertain to the subject, and 2 essays, WHICH HE DOESNT READ! I wrote about mac n cheese one time and got full credit, no lie. If you're in his two clubs as a freshman (Cath League + SS Club) he helps you out grade wise

Bro. Larry, to this day, is among the top three best teachers I've ever had. College included. He says that he will run class as if it were an undergraduate lecture and he is not kidding. Learn to take notes on lectures and use the textbook!

Terrible with notes. He expects you to write your own notes. Good luck on comps and pray someone posts their outlines on the chaminade facebook page.

Bro larry does not give notes or stay on topic in class. He expects u to make your own outlines which is good and bad, good because u can focus on the info u think u need to know and bad if ur lazy (like me) and don't like outlining when u can just read the chapter in the textbook. He gets very off topic during class but if u ask a question he will always know the answer immediately and will always give a correct and detailed answer. he knows a great deal about current events and his subject.

Brother Lawrence is one of the most faithful, honest, knowledgeable and sincerely concerned teachers I have had the pleasure to become acquainted with at CHS. In class, many time his discussions touch upon current events teaching us that history can repeat itself. Outside of class, his interaction with the students in the Catholic League and other clubs can simultaneously be fun and broaden our minds. Brother Lawrence is a large part of what makes Chaminade special for students.

He is probably the nicest WRS teacher at chaminade. Gives no notes but the tests are based directly off the outlines. Get on his good side and you'll pass.

My favorite teacher. I have never seen him write a slip, and if he actually had to, he'd probably have to borrow one from another teacher. Member of the NSA, according to him. He knows who I am...
