Mr.Mcginnity is an overall phenomenal teacher; his demonstration for crucial topics each unit are amazing. His presentations are a perfect mix of videos for help with understanding and practice questions from the Earth Science Text Book. The labs are simple if you put in the time and effort to do the homework given and pay attention in class. He gives appropriate due dates for labs and is very understanding when it comes to retaking quizzes and occasionally a test if your an attentive student.

I asked a simple question that I was very confused about. He replied with, "Really, you don't understand this?! I spent 3 classes going over it!" Uhh... I was absent the days before. he got pissed at me and told me I should pay attetion more. do not recommend him. teachers are supposed to answer questions when students are confused. he lost his mind when you asked a question, and I counted the minutes until class ended. Content was pretty boring :/

I had him years ago and one time I saw a pencil on the ground near my desk so I picked it up and it turned out to be his. He said "Is that my pencil?" and I said "I don't know, is it? I found it on the floor, here you go." and then he said "You know, I just lost all the respect I almost had for you." He hated me the rest of the school year. He was a decent teacher though, I think.

Some days were good and I enjoyed being a part of his class learning a lot and doing labs, but other days i counted down the minutes until the class was over. If you were confused and asked a question he would embarrass you in front of the whole class and make you feel so stupid he encouraged questions but when you ask them you would only get more confused and now scared to ask any more questions. That is not what learning is, he's the teacher and supposed to help. I had a decent year though ...

When I asked questions he would yell at me and get frustrated, he chose favorites the whole year and I was scared to ask a question because I didn't want to get yelled at. I was very confused when he explained things

Mr McGinnity was pretty fun. He was a good teacher. Just that he can get mad easily if you ask questions you should already know or don't understand.

Mr.McGinnity was a good teacher. He was thorough when he answered questions and made sure things made sense. I liked how his class had safety nets when you didn't do so good on a lab or quiz. He made class fun and interesting.

He's a pretty chill guy, can get upset a little easily but working with annoying kids isn't the easiest job. He's very helpful and sometimes kind. He loves to mess with students it's a very fun class.

I think when hes mad, he takes it out on the wrong people, or just on the class when it seems like his anger is toward a certain student. I don't think hes the most helpful, but his policy's are the best iv seen out of any other teacher.

A very helpful teacher who makes jokes that sometimes only a few kids in the class understand. He allows you to correct labs that you may have done a bad grade o, which can raise your grade. Sometimes he does have moments when the class is bad or not following directions and yells a bit...
