Worst teacher I've had at Bellarmine. Marine Biology is a joke. He spends the entire period most days bragging about his personal life and digressing for the entire period. Doesn't teach anything about Marine Biology. He shows a lot of movies. Also, he was always late or never showing up because he had more important things to do. He also enjoys scapegoating kids and picking on them which is pretty immature for a high school teacher to do. Don't buy the textbook and you can get a B or A.
His job could be replaced with a computer. He just sits around during class. Also, he is ALWAYS LATE TO CLASS!!! He was 25 minutes late one day! Every Friday he is 10 minutes late.
Mr. Adams is by far my worst teacher I have ever had. All he does is sits at his desk as we read the textbook. One day, he made us make a representation of earth's layers. He gave us some playdoh that was gray with some specks of color and expected us to pick out the colored playdoh and to make an accurate representation. There was no color! Also, every single test we have has had material we have not learned. His final had over 30 questions we didn't learn. He just blames it on the computer.
Guy sets clear expectations and doesn't spend time with any BS. He doesn't give it; he won't permit it. Class is generally enjoyable and light atmosphere. All anyone has to do to change that atmosphere is act out or distract others - Mr. Adams will fix the problem and move on. Very accomodating outside of class if help is needed.
Great guy, if he dislikes you there's a very good reason for it.
Super nice guy who encourages participation. If by picks on, people mean playful poking then yes he does that TOO EVERYONE. Stop being so insecure people! His class focuses a lot on real-life aplications for science and there are many outdoor activities. Great guy to hang out with and talk about life. Tests are pretty easy and always on the topics he says will they will be on. (Actually gives you practice test that have exact same or super close answers to actual test). GO FOR 1 OF HIS CLASSES!
Great teacher, hard tests, especially for botany, but I would still take the class regardless of hi tests
Mr. Adams is a very good teacher. He is very helpful with teaching and notes, but with him it is his way or the Highway. Mr. Adams is mostly focused on student participation. He says everyone should raise their hand to answer a question even if you don't know the answer. Sometimes he is strict with hiss students but his classes can also be fun and funny.
If reading wikipedia off the projector screen was a class at Bellarmine, Pat Adams would be the best teacher that ever taught
so fricken easy and awesome! I currently have a 180%. You must have him for physics and its the best. Its a class where you learn a lot but at the same time are guaranteed and A which is awesome
He doesn't teach the material so the class is pretty hard. BUT, you get off topic and learn soooooo much other random stuff about life and everything in life and what not.
Not super helpful, you can rely on him to learn everything but science. But I still thought it was funny when he picked on kids.
wow. the guy cant teach all he does is have you watch videos and tests u on stuff not in the videos and is too lazy to grade the tests.
I believe that i Learned a lot from him and that he wasnt very bad. based on the people here they are just criticizing him, but i feel that he is a really helpful and fun teacher.
cool guy, shows videos gotta study by yourself though cant rely too much on him for test prep
Not too intelligent or wise. Overall, he's a cool guy, but not someone I would want to seriously learn anything from, especially science. Oh well, it's an easy A.
He was the worst teacher I had ever had that don't have anything to do with science. I think he actually taught us something about science one day out of the whole year.
everything he says is fake but his classes are easy because he gets so easily distracted. he hinted to my class he has ADD and likes blowing stuff up. cool guy tho.
80% of ths stuff that comes out of his mouth is just made up.
Sickest teacher ever....can talk about cheese for a whole class period...and the only HW is coloring...how sick is that?!?!?!
