Mr. Gibbons is not a good teacher. He does seem to be knowledgeable but why do the tests have to be difficult? I had never expected my history grade would be my worst grade. You can tell the teacher does not want the best for his students, lazy, he's always drinking pop, and overall bad experience. He was not understanding at all :( It was my fault for not switching out of the beggining of the semester. Plus, he had said some things in class that could get him in trouble....
Hate that teacher
Mr. Gibbons is an incredibly knowledgeable teacher. He tells history in such an interesting way that I don't feel bored during his lectures. However, his tests are pretty tough, as they should be for an AP course, and he isn't as merciful as many other high school teachers, but that's just real life, folks.
Possibly one of the worst experiences with a teacher in my entire high school career. Extremely insulting at times, very moody, and not understanding about situations at all. He has gotten pulled out of class because the principal has had to talk to him about mistreating students. He has countless number of complaints against him and doesn't seem to fix his attitude or class to accommodate his students. The only plus is that he gets his test questions from online, so it is easy to ace tests.
extremely good teacher but occassionally will go on sudden periods of anger. bit of a nerd.
Mr. Gibbons is an awesome, extremely funny teacher. I don't know why but history teachers seem to be the funniest teachers and the nicest. :) His class is very easy and there is very low pressure. For every unit he assigns a packet, gives us notes to copy down, we watch a movie or two for review, and we take a test. He usually gives a week or two to complete each packet, and he wants you to write well. I hope I have him as a techer again! :D
Mr. Gibbons totally changed my outlook on History and how I felt about social sciences in general. He was one of the most helpful, knowledgeable, and entertaining teachers I have ever had and miss him greatly in college. Also wrote great rec letters!
I could go into great detail about how Mr. Gibbons makes his class the most interesting one offered at Troy High, or how his humor make his course the most enjoyable one I have ever taken. However, all I need to say is that everything is perfect. 100
Mr. Gibbons is very knowledgeable when it comes to history, but in order to retain his students' interest, he makes fun of historical characters as well as the prominent societal figures of today. He oftentimes stereotypes all students as lazy partygoers who do not care about their academics, which is very frustrating to those of us who try very hard to be successful academically. Because he has been extremely disrespectful by continuously insulting his students, many kids' self-esteem is ruined
You'll love Gibbons. He's hilarious and a good teacher. I know everyone loves Lorelli, but he knows what he's doing and he makes class very entertaining. I loved this class and he was a big part of it. Very helpful teacher if you reach out to him.
Most of the people who say this class was impossible never made the effort to look over their tests and talk to him about how to study. If you work hard, this class isn't too hard and a great experience.
DON'T BE TARDY. ONLY THING HE'S STRICT ABOUT
Great at making lectures a lot less boring than other teachers. Talks to you like you're an equal, not twelve.
He's the best even though his class can be hard at times. He's down to earth, and even likes Russell Peters!
One of the best classes i've ever had. If he was going for world dictator i'd def. support it.
this man is awesome. can't say enough good things about his class.
I had an A in the class, studied for a.p, and still got a 3. Same with amost all of my friends. He's a good guy, but the work that you do doesn't help you on the a.p.
