He made a lot of the girls feel not comfortable in his class, my friend bent over and he was staring at her dress, made her not comfortable in his class after. He is Extremely confusing and I didn't really get what he was saying. A lot of people were happy he retired.

At first, I did not like him very much, but as time went on, I really started to like him! He's a very nice person and he genuinely cares about his students. I really miss being his student :)

Mr. Maier often winks and goes on tangents, though that's not what I'd like rating him on. What matters is that I learned a lot and maintained a decent grade in his class- his study guides were nice and will prepare you for exams if you take the time to study through it, though the exams will be difficult. He is somewhat clear with assignments and I didn't like his occasional sarcasm. If you don't like the subject, it's not really his fault.. All in all, be good in class and you'll be okay.

I really can't conceive why any of you would write a bad comment on Mr. Maier. I think he is one of the most unique teachers that i have ever met. He says thing clearly, and if you don't understand it than he will be more than glad to take his time to help you out. He is great about due dates (no points off if its late :D), but best of all, throughout all the confusion of science, retains an attitude that is sure to make you smile; (at least for me).

He is a really great teacher. We do really cool expiriments and he uses torches and we see really cool expiriments. With some expiriments you might want to cover your ears.

Strange teacher. He seems confused when you ask a question and always says weird jokes. The jokes just get in the way of him actually teaching anything. His experiments stink too.
