He does basically nothing the entire period, he'll give you your section review than disappear into his office. Then when theres about 10 minutes left he'll come out to give out his participation points, which is just him reading the textbook and asking stupid questions. If you do his section reviews and the labs and get a C/D on his tests its a pretty easy A or B.
I had Mr. Straub for honors Chemistry and it has been the best class I've ever taken. He does not make the class easy, he makes you work to find the answer, though he will help anytime you need it. His tests are very difficult, but with enough studying you can figure them out. Grading is fair. He is an extremely intelligent guy and knows his stuff. This teacher genuinely wants you to succeed and will work to get you there. Also, his Christmas Magic Show (running 42 years now) is great.
He literately sits in the backroom for most of the period and when there's five minutes of class left he comes out and has a "little chat." All he does is ask questions that are straight from the textbook and gives extra credit for whoever answered it the info usually had nothing to do with what was on the test.
You're probably gonna get roasted by for something stupid, but straub is a pretty cool guy. If you do the labs and homework you can get low C's on tests and still end up with an A or B for the class. It's easy to get away with using your phone in his class, but he catches you he makes a big deal over it.
By far my favorite teacher ever! I feel in love with chemistry after taking his class.
Mr. Straub made the greatest impact in my High School education. He was by far one of the most gifted teachers I ever had! I can't speak highly enough of him!
Brilliant! But has terrible time management skills, and if you take him for AP you more than likely wont pass.
Brilliant man with a brilliant mind. He answers questions that students have and teaches so many interesting things about sciences! Also, he is pretty funny
Girls, do NOT talk in his class. Other than that, cool teacher and smart. I didn't like participating though so participation points brought my grade down every time. Study!!
Makes class fun, just do the work and you'll do fine!
Awesome teacher! Just respect him and do the work! You can learn so much from him!
I went to Europe with Straubo for a study program and had the best time! great fella!
Great teacher who knows what hes talking about. He can be a little condescending at times but it is mostly harmless fun. Great Biology teacher for good studen
collest chem. teacher ever. he is sooo funny and has the best sense of humor. his christmas magic show was the best(STRAUBO)
He knows a lot about bio, as long as your polite and answer when he says hello he is nice to you. As long as you study and do homework the class is pretty easy.
going to Europe with him, was his TA, took his bio 2 class, and am in his class again next year. Straub is an awsome teacher. He inspired me to want to teach
he is a good teacher. He has a great method to teach chem. He can sometimes embarrass you in front of the class but he doesn't do it on purpose. He is nice!
The Great Straubo! Man that class was the coolest Chem class ever. Subtle humor, sometimes even scary. but he was awesome.
I think hes too opinonated and sometimes can hurt peoples feelings...but he does know how to teach chem!
He's awesome. Magic show man! Very clear and awesome as far as teaching goes.
Excellent teacher. Fair, caring and incredibly knowledgeable (on much more than just what he teaches.) He has perfected his curriculum and knows exactly what he needs to teach.
Killer Christmas show! Been teaching a lonnnnng time and guess what?... he still cares!
Favors the popular students and has embarassed those that are unpopular.
Quite possibly the best teacher I've ever had. Funny, imformative, caring.
Amazing man, genuine concern for students, great world traveler!
