Mr. Taylor is extremely knowledgeable and intelligent, but really not a very good teacher at all. He doesn't explain, rarely answers questions, and moves incredibly fast. His grading system is crazy, except that he posts the grades online, so you get grades back very fast. He's sort of nice to some people, but also really picks on a few certain people whom he really dislikes. Overall, if you have him, look forward to crazy hard class work but not very difficult homework usually.

So far I have very mixed feelings towards Mr. Taylor. He's got a dry, witty sense of humor which can come off as rude and downright mean sometimes, but I wouldn't say he's a bad teacher. I can tell he's really passionate about teaching science, but trying to make Labs with him is impossible. He never seems to be free. His tests are VERY hard, and his grading system is difficult to understand. I wouldn't recommend him, but he's the kind of person everyone feels differently about.

HE IS SO FUNNY! Be in his class, now! You will not regret it. Some people find him to be a hard teacher, I don't really think so. But I'm just really good at sciences.
Basically, he LOVES making people laugh. So if he insults you, it's for the reaction. Don't take it personally. He's just a funny guy.

He is honestly the most rude, obnoxious, disrespectful, uncaring, and meanest teacher that I know in the Dalton school. He is a good teacher, very strict and has favorite students. He is also very rude to the students that he dislikes and he talks badly of his disliked students to other students.

He is a really good teacher, but he is also very challenging. Labs are really helpful and he actually wants to help, he just tries to seem really mean to maintain his reputation. In truth, he is a g

He's fine when it comes to actual material being taught. That's about it. Labs are not helpful and he tries to humiliate you. Also he has favorites and if you're not one of them you're screwed.

He teaches to the five best students in the class, and the rest have to fare for themselves. He has the maturity level of a six-year old, and plays favorites.

Sandy's a cool dude at times, but watch out when he's sour (He's got a Napoleon complex like whoa). He's a good teacher, though, so that's pretty cool.

He isn't a bad teacher, but he's difficult, and very unsensitive. I know several people whom he has made cry.

He's so bitter. Don't take him if you're sensitive. But he's fabulous.
