He is a really nice teacher and his classes are very easy. Anyone can easily get high 90 in his course. HOWEVER, I think there is a problem if the average was 94. Because he dumbs down everything, you don't really learn any real physics. After high school I had to take mendatory physics classes in University (for life science; so "easier" physics courses) and uni physics KICKED MY ASS. If you are going into arts and wants an easy A; good, but if you want to study science, definetly not helpful.
By far the BEST teacher I have ever had. He made physics class (including AP) so easy. He was always willing to explain concepts in various manners. He was also willing to go above and beyond in what was needed to be discussed in class (ie talking about current research and scientific advances). Definitely my favourite teacher ever! If you're at Oak Park and taking physics, take his class! (PS he also used to be an ap calc teacher so that's really helpful)
Best Physics teacher hands down! You have to be a special type of stupid not to pass his class :)
Mr Bettess is a wicked cool guy. He hates Tache just as much as the kids. Go Bettess, go.

talks about students and their grade when they aren't in the class
