He may know the science but uses videos of someone else teaching the subject for most lessons. Boring class! Not told what's going to be on tests or final so can't prep. Daily homework is copying text from book. Avoid his classes if possible.

honestly, yes he jokes around a lot and seems like a nice enough guy however, we have finals tomorrow and he gave us a whole chapters worth of notes that will be on the test tomorrow that he never taught us. Personally, that's irresponsible and when people asked him why he didn't teach it to us, he blamed students for taking time away from class. It is his job to control the class. If he stopped telling jokes and stories,maybe the material could have been covered. Very unprofessional, my opinion

Man, his earth science class was bizarre. This was the only class I've ever been in where we've lost kids on a field trip. We came back 3 kids short!
