A lot of people say that Mr. Bester picks favourites but, personally, I have never seen his happen. He is super nice and brings his sports teams and PE classes snacks from Poland. I love his accent and he is super nice. A lot of people say that he is mean and rough but on the inside he is just really big softie whom everyone truly loves. He is an amazing teacher and gets everything done when he needs to.

People hate on Bester because of he makes ppl run Shaugnessy laps and stuff but honestly he is such a big old softy I can't help but love him. If you ever take AP Euro look forward to his guest lecture on living in (and escaping) Poland during the Soviet era it was amazing

He's by far one of my favourite teachers because of his quirky/random/funny actions. "Follow papa goose" and "tough cookie" are among the most memorable Bester quotes. Great guy!
