Mr. Barker is an amazing teacher and as long as you don't give him trouble and put effort into the class, you're good to go. He runs a very organized notebook system which gives way for students to make up late homework. I've also found that he's very helpful and is willing to answer any questions you may have. He's passionate about the subjects he teaches (Anatomy and Earth/Space Science), and really knows his stuff. Overall, as long as you put work into his class, you'll do just fine.

He's rather strict with organization, but he's easy to understand, and his lectures aren't too boring.

Barker is basically a highschool nerd turned high school teacher. He is pretty cool and helpful, and funny sometimes. With Barker, it is pretty much "you get what you give".

Biology was relatively easy. The final exams are all multiple choice; if you read the textbook, then you're fine. The quizzes are more based on class notes.
