He's a good guy and is usually pretty nice but he plays favorites and not being one sucked. i had him for EDD and if i didn't do as much research between classes as he wanted (i was in all college level classes and played a sport so i didn't have time for the 4 hours of research a nigh that he wanted) he got really angry and made me feel like crap and that i didn't deserve to be there. the class has great potential but needs to be taught by someone who is more helpful. good person, bad teacher.

If you are serious about studying engineering or something related to it in the future, he is a great teacher. He also comes off as not helpful, however after freshmen year I realized that this was a good thing. Engineers face challenges all the time and have to answer questions that there isn't an answer to. He sets you up for this by giving you the basics and leaving you to figure out the rest. I had him 3 times and learned so much about how to learn, lead, and be an engineer from him.

Favorites is his game so hope he likes you. But if he does not then you will have to spend a lot of time talking to classmates or on the internet. It is easy to see that he has been teaching a long time and does not always want to be there.

Average teacher - does pick favorites, no real solid deadlines, difficult class. Not bad though, so don't switch out or anything.

He is a fun teacher but he doesnt really help you with anything even when you stay after. He only explains the project once. And if he doesnt like you have fun trying to pass.

I had Gallagher for three PLTW classes and I loved them all. I am now going into my senior year in Engineering I owe him big time. If you have a chance to take a class from him do it !!

Great class, a lot of fun... he is a really cool guy but not the best teacher. Still, in the end he managed to get the information across, even if both he and the students got confused during the process.

No honestly, he really does only help the smart kids. And he avoids the dumb kids phone calls. Never ask him to do you a favor.
