Very "chill" teacher-- he teaches the material in a clear manner! However there is one thing that I think he shouldn't do... If, and whenever our class gets rather rowdy, he loses his patience. Rightfully so! But it's the way does it that I'm not too fond off. He stops homework review and skips forward to the next topic. I find it quite disappointing that such a cool teacher should lose his cool like this, rather passive-aggressively. Please don't let a few students ruin! Many want to learn! :(

Very loose teacher who never really is concerned with helping students and instead refers to the textbook for almost every occasion I have ever asked him about help in math. His teachings are often unclear and rushed, as though he imagines that everybody knows the material as much as he does. In regard to computers, he knows little to nothing about the material and almost never even takes the time to help students. There's no point in him being there in the room other than to take attendance.

I wish all teachers were as hard working and dedicated as he is. He teaches more subjects than anyone else and puts 100% effort into making us understand the concepts. OSA's athletes would be nothing without him and also his computers class is way better than quereshi's since he actually helps if you ask him.

The BEST physics teacher you are ever going to have. classes are fun and interesting. Tests are fair. Personally, i think he's the best teacher at osa! just wait til physics 30 with mr.jauch... then you'll really start to appreciate all that karas does.

I feel bad for the man - he's way too overworked. He manages over 90% of school athletics, and yet manages to bring a good attitude to school almost every day. You won't understand how much the man kn

Mr Karas has a lot on his plate. He alone is responsible for pretty much everything remotely athletic at OSA. In addition he teaches computers, physics and math. Despite this he is a joy to be around

Very chilled and relaxed, prepare for some self-learning on your part. But with the tradeoff of having an amazing class, it's worth it. However, don't push it TOO far, as he does occasionally snap.
