Mr. Porter is one of the most arrogant pigs I have ever met and he truly ruined my learning experience and turned me off to biology. I had him for IB Bio I and his class started out fun and knowledgeable but throughout the year he became very lazy and inconsiderate. He spent more time bragging about his precious Science Olympiad team (which eventually bit him in the butt- the team lost during a competition that he claimed they would be invincible in ) than actually instructing class. Disgusting.

I had him for IB Bio 1. He was really helpful, and it was nice that he understood how insane IB can be. He goes off on tangents and takes forever to get to the point of some of his stories, but other than that I really enjoyed his class.

Easily one of the best teachers i have ever had. Very approachable, answers questions if you have them, tests correspond to material but are still challenging enough.

Hidden Gem of Mira Loma. My favorite teacher thus far. IB Bio is so fun with him. Very clear and open to questions. Great anecdotes. Just an awesome class.

I had him for IB bio one, and the only thing that I remember from his class is membrane structure and function. And a bunch of needless stuff about his life.

Porter's uselessness in the classroom is paralleled solely by his uselessness in all of his previous careers, which he describes incessantly. IB is not for him.

He apologized the other day for flat out not teaching us anything. I have to do summer work now just to catch up to the other students who had the better teacher... : (

He isnt an effective teacher. I can't remember anything from last semester. He doesn't stick to his principles. For example, we have a test tomorow , and he "doesnt test on Mondays

He needs to learn the IB rubric, and then realize that we need to know more than half of it before this year is through. I have learned absolutley nothing. I ALMOST wish I had hill
