He's awesome. I didn't appreciate it when I was in highschool, but he was so supportive and always made me, a constant skipper and generally bad kid, want to do better. I'm now on my way to law school and I always look back and thank him.

everything on the test was never reviewed in class and his lectures were so boring i was falling asleep 90% of the time. Assigned a PROJECT and a QUIZ during grad weekend. He also joked about cutting his wrists a lot. Not cool, Callister.

Very chill teacher with a GREAT sense of humour. Learning biology has never been more fun! He's really understanding and he knows that us students do go through tough times. What can I say? HE IS AWESOME. Super fun to learn from. His quizzes are straight forward, and his tests are a bit trickier where you need to apply concepts but hey! It's all worth it as long as you listen during class. His tests ARE based on what he mentions. =)

hes such a great teacher and u can tell hes a cheerful fella by looking at him. sometime, judging a book by its cover shouldnt carry a bad connotation. It does work

awesome guy. can boost your mark from a C- to a B in 2 seconds. if youre skipping some other class (ex. PE) to study for an exam, he'll let you stay no problem. but only if you have a good enough reason. if you tell him youre not prepared for a test, he'll postpone it for you.

Best biology teacher ever. he has the magical power of transforming the dry text of the bio textbook into lively lectures, and a unusal sense of humor. he likes to diss things to get his point across, which usually makes me laugh. Advices are, pay attention during class evne though its extremely chilled, cause when it comes to test, its not so easy. If you decided to skip his test, be prepared to explain. If you arn't ready to do the test, tell him ahead of time, and he understands. ;) have fun!

I think he's great. I never really liked science but he is definately making Bio a bearable course. He talks alot but most of it is funny so you dont mind.

He is an AWESOME teacher and is an EXTREMELY nice person. His biology classes are informative as well as entertaining. His tests help prepare you for the provincial exam! Mr. Callister is also very helpful...Be it lunch time, before/after school....he is always there. He is truly the best!
