AVOID AP Chemistry and AP Environment teacher AT ALL COST. Stay away from it. This teacher shows the same attitude as students have, the fact that neither of them want to be there. He shows no enthusiasm or effort in teaching students. He is so confusing that I had to go to my private Chemistry teacher for help. This dude doesn't go over any of the material and leaves your stranded to complete assignments without knowing anything. Simply horrible!

I am a grandmother to Rachel Goren. I saw in the newspaper a 35 minute film titled "from one second to the next" it is about the dangers of texting. The filmmaker is Walter Herzog. Might be valuable in showing to students.
