He made biotech THE class to take. So glad that he taught the first few months of AP bio, or I would have dropped that class straight off with what happened to it afterwards.

If you ever have the choice of taking biotech in Grade 10 do it. This was the class I learned most in. In a year you learn so much and the class itself is a great experience. Mr Ovas is the best

Awesomest Teacher. This guy says hi to every one of his students in the halls and can teach very well. His tests are not easy since most of the material is not in the textbook.

If you pursue a biology-related post-secondary degree, you'll truly appreciate Mr. Ovas' devotion to his students. You probably won't even have to study for first year biology at university. Great guy
