He's the best phys ed teacher I've ever had. He makes students work incredibly hard, but shows that he legitimately cares about them.

I find that he likes to teach in a way that is kind of slow which sometimes makes it boring. However, as the year progressed he started teaching a lot faster which made PE a lot funner.

At first I did not like him because he would force kids to run, and did not allow walking, even if the person was about to collapse. However, once the weather got colder and the fitness center and jump rope unit started, I find that PE is actually a very helpful class that encourages me to live a healthy life style. However, in Health, he picks on me for doodling, yet I am always aware and listening to what he and my fellow peers say. Sometimes, he says it's bad, sometimes he says it's not.

I love how detailed he is but sometimes the lesson can get so long because he is so detailed. But if he wasn't so detailed I wouldn't like his class so much.

We have to study for most of his tests which is fine, but I feel sometimes he makes up some of the things he says, and is to strict about everything.

Mr. Sylvester is a very good teacher but he doesn't like it if you fool around while he is teaching even just a little bit. On the last day of school I want to tell him it's okay to fool around once in awhile.

I mean, he's better than Nadel. But...he kept lecturing us last year and it's just ughhh. He talks waaayyy too much, and even he admitted it, but overall he's pretty cool. He's better than Nadel cuz at least he takes us out for exercise

I personally do not like mr. Sylvester AT ALL. He is way to serious about his job and its impossible to build a friendly relationship with him because every time u slip up and talk once in his class, all the friendship you had before is now completely gone.

Sylvester is a okay teacher. If your one of those classes that talk ALOT then get ready for a lecture in every class until you get better (in his eyes.) He'll probably over explain everything until the point where it is drilled so deep in your skull, which is reallly good if you forgot to study fir a quiz or something. LA is a really big thing in his class ( I can't stress that enough.) You'll come out knowing at least one thing.
