I currently am finishing the first semester with him. He had always been helpful and easy to get in contact with. He lets people do whatever unless he is talking at the start of class and food sharing is not allowed because it distracts people otherwise you can eat.

I had him for Freshman year (2012) and he's an amazing Physics teacher. With his experience and expertise in the field of physics, he had a lot to offer and teach. Don't be afraid to ask for help because he will really clear up any confusion you may have. He made physics interesting for me while the rest of the people in other physics class hated it. Have fun and don't be afraid to venture off on a new route for his physics projects!

Laid-back. Humorous. Not strict. Homework is not difficult. Teaching preference: interactive/hands-on activities. Lots of extra credit is given. Bad handwriting. Very disorganized. Monotone voice = nap time. Have him for physics? Enjoy your yr w/ him

He's an amazing person, but kinda boring in class. Learned a lot from him tho. You can eat in that class just don't leave a mess. Take a lot of notes and never throw away any notebooks. Gives out extra credit for answering the daily warm up and other easy stuff. Cool teacher!

Amazing teacher! You will be lucky to have him as a physics teacher. He has a great personality and is always kind and won't yell at you. Briber is always caring toward his students and on your birthday he will give you candy!You can decline or accept his gift if you want. Some cons are his lectures, I'm not sure if it's because I had him last period but his lectures can get a little bit boring. Pros about his lectures are that it is useful and informative. You will have fun in his class! Enjoy!

Had him for Physics. The class was easy to earn an A in. He gives a lot of extra credit during warm ups. Projects are easy, and he is a laidback teacher. Phones, iPods, and food are usually out during class and he generally doesn't care unless you bother people. Good teacher.

He's possibly the best, and not easiest, physics teacher. He makes jokes, you can eat in class, and he NEVER yells at you. If you get him, congrats! Oh, and you get chocolate on your birthday. Hahaha.
