It's been about 15 years since I had Rick, but I only have fond memories of Mr. Desjardins. He was entertaining and engaging and I never had a problem following his lessons.
One moment I remember was him noticing that I was drawing on my notes. He held it up to the class, but only to say that my drawings were cool, because he knew I was taking notes. A lot of teachers would have told me to stop drawing. I'm now a professional artist, so A+ to DJ for being cool all those years ago.
Well, I have not had him as a teacher for a very long time, but we thought he was great! Hey, Rick, this is Kathy (Tubbs) Mitchell from way back when. Send me an e-mail if you get this message - kat
Tells really awesome stories, and is fair! Rick is the man.
Cool guy, hard teacher. Go in each day knowing what to ask him. Otherwise, you won't know anything.
DJ is the man, but most of his jokes suck but u laugh they're so bad.
He is really cool, but he teaches things in a confusing manner
He is really cool, and he explains chemistry as well as any other teacher does. if you don't understand it, it's because you just should take an easier class
he was really funny, and cool to talk to but he didnt know how to teach what he knew.. needles to say.. i learned nothing =(
DJ is an awesome teacher and the kids who say he's not just shouldn't be in Chemistry. The reason people think he's hard is cuz they're too dumb to take Chem.
Cool guy, probably not the best teacher but he's not as bad as some people say he is. Also adds humor to chem... who knew it could be done.
DesJardins understands all of the concepts of chemistry and knows how to do chem very well... his only problem is that he can't teach what he knows!
I loved DJ. Hated AP Chem, but I shouldn't have taken it at the same time as AP Bio. I got sick & couldn't handle it. He did work with me though.
very hard but he is the best teacher ever.... Dj is the best to learn from
Hard class (regular and AP) but very worthwile and I learned a TON.
DJ is an excellent teacher, just not as good as the ones in Phoenix, AZ
Desjardins was one of the best teachers I have ever had!
Dj gives chemistry enough humor to make it tolerable. It's just not an easy subject to teach. He does a better job at teaching it than a lot of people can.
Too aggogant & pompous; worst teacher I ever had; really turned me off about chemistry
