Mr. Powell is a good teacher unless he happens to hate your class. His tests can be a bit confusing if you're not prepared for them. He often forgets to mention that he posts answers to textbook questions by his window and expects us to check his window every single day. Overall, he's a good teacher but could use a bit more humour in his lessons.

There's nothing Mr. Powell loves more than homework checking international students and asking them what they did over the weekend

FAVOURITE TEACHER! He is very detailed in his explanations most of the time. To do well, you honestly just need to do all of the homework assignments and you'll understand every concept. Final exam - you're not going to use half of the formulas, I'm just saying. Don't try too hard for your cheat sheet.

Mr.Powell is probably my favourite teacher. I really understand what we learn in class and he's actually the funniest guy ever. I had a 60% last year in science in another teachers class and now I'm getting 86% in his. He's a great guy.

Powell is basically the coolest science teacher I've ever met. You can tell him anything. If there's something bothering you in life, you can always tell him and he'll give you great suggestions.

He gives a very scary first-day-of-class speech, but after that you realize it's not so bad. His homework policy is very lax, and his tests are always on things you've been working on. His help during tests can be quite useless, but what do you expect? And if he thinks you should be able to find something on your own, he doesn't help much, but I suppose that can be a good thing. =P

Mr. Powell provides simply concise notes, demonstrations and insightul explanations. Homework is simple and he is easy to find for help. Projects are fun, he offers plenty of in-class study time. Classes arn't tedious, he always has jokes and great one-liners. He has a slight lisp but it becomes unnoticeable over the year, although full understanding of concepts is generally realized elsewhere.
