Mr. Overley's Bio AP class was a very challenging class but also very rewarding. Mr. Overley is clearly a knowledgeable person when it comes to biology, but I as a student had difficulty learning from him because his teaching style is not effective for me. He lectures without much structure, and it is difficult to get the big picture idea because there aren't key terms to write down. His emphasis on labs is very good for those serious about science. His exams really test you.
Bio Honors is hard and lots of work. However, he is always there to help you and he cares about your success in life. He is a wicked fast grader, which I admire in him. Labs and tests are terror, you really have to know the material very well to do well. I disliked the way he ran the class though (Assignment must be turned the day they're due NO EXCEPTIONS and before the bell rings) Advice to future student (if there is one): Don't be afraid to ask for help, he will almost always help you :)
Bio honors is a very difficult class but totally worth it. I was hesitant to take it at first, but I'm so glad I did. Doing the science fair project was probably one of the hardest things I've ever done but it was still a lot of fun. He places lot of emphasis on not grabbing for points that don't matter and also trying to understand full concepts, which I greatly appreciate.
A very good teacher who knows exactly what he is teaching and saying from the years of experiences. I didn't really like him at first, but now I realize just how much effort he put into teaching us all. I appreciated it all, and I am going to miss him when I move onto next year.
just cuz he is the football coach it makes class somewhat entertaining. but it was a really hard class.
You can tell that he really wants to be a professor. He leaves you with a randomly disjointed knowledge in bio, but you'll know some things in great detail. I like him regardless.
He has to be one of my favorite teachers of all time! He forces you to work and be accountable and just may have saved my high school career!!!
overley-sensei is extremely interesting, and a little confusing...! i loved his class though!
Freshman Honors Bio: stressful, a shock. You don't like him much. AP Bio: You're used to him. Everything's easier. You enjoy what you learn. Labs still stressful lol. A very busy dedicated man though.
THE BEST FOOTBALL COACH OF ALL TIME! STATE CHAMPS BABY!!!!! WHO CARES ABOUT HOW HE TEACHES!!!!!! GO MR. O!
He has good intentions, maybe a bit condesending. Freshman bio honors is tough, but totally worth it!
Coach O is an awesome teacher, and is fun to listen in lectures
very difficult and stressful. but thats okay because hes the o-dog
by far the most stressful class for freshman. however, his analogies are good and he is a very good teacher and pretty cool person. plus he helped the football team own this year
Great teacher. he makes it demanding but still really enjoyable. Smart guy, and also great person.
he's teaches a difficult course...but he's an amazing teacher that really knows his subject
He isn't easy, but he is the best science teacher I've ever had. Pay attention in class, study for his tests, ask help when you need it and you'll be fine.
awesome teacher! Although his tests were hard at first you get use to them. He is willing to help you with anything and will spend a lot of time with you
He is my favorite teacher! I love Bio and loved his honors class, he is tough but fun! I loved doing our science fair projects!
very hard teacher, but he is good. i don't like his student teacher because she just makes us do bussy work.
Mr. Overley is the one of the best teachers I have had. He got me interested in biology as a career. His course is difficult, but he is always there to help you understand it. He will stay with you until you feel comfortable with a concept- he is terrific
