Had him for AP gov't many years ago. Class was a fun senior class, not much work to do. Is a cool guy and means well. It wasnt until many years later that I realized that he taught us things that were actually factually inaccurate. He told us that to become a senior senator you have to be in the senate for a certain number of years. This is simply not true. He was also wrong about many of the court rulings he taught us about. Overall good guy, but not someone I'd have teach my children

Mr. Lynch is really awesome and inspirational teacher. His life stories are really interesting and can actually be useful to you down the road, believe it or not (like when he gave us advice on buying old/international editions of textbooks to save money in college). I used to be completely apathetic about politics, but his class helped me develop an interest for it. His tests and quizzes are pretty easy, and he does not believe in giving busy work like some of the other teachers do.

Lynch is a really good guy, but a pretty terrible teacher. He's super passionate about everything he does, but unfortunately, that means that the subject material is sacrificed to a thirty minute discussion about whatever goes through his mind. His classes are easy to pass, and I would definitely su

If you are in his AP Gov class, just do the reading and listen to his lectures and you will recieve a good grade. His class is entertaining and you only get out what you put into it. Great guy!

Class of 99'. I really enjoyed this guys class. He was one of the few teachers who stuck up for me and didn't get bogged down in the bureaucratic BS at WHS. I have fond memories of this guy.

Is an outstanding teacher. had him for AP gov, AP human geo, and honors Econ. Sure he goes off topic but it's usually about real world applications of what he is teaching you! so his students don't just become BOOK SMART and they actually know what to do with what they learn

He was a cool teacher for AP Government and Honors Econ, but I definately didn't learn enough to prepare myself for the AP test.

seemed nice in beginning, but when we spend more than one entire class period talking about gas and how "independent minded and awesome" he is, it stretches it.

His AP class can be tough and I did not always feel we had prepared enough in class for tests. He is a young, cool guy and I enjoyed Econ- altho he grades hard
