Definitely my favorite teacher of all time. I had him for anthro/psyc/socio and he motivated me to go after my goal of being a psychologist and trying for a university even though I am an ESL student. His class was always interesting and fun. He is so passionate about his job and it was just such a blessing having him as a teacher. Outside the class he is just such an awesome person to open a conversation with. I will never forget him and my ultimate goal is to become as intelligent as him.

Mr.Kennedy is an amazing mentor and he's very good at explaining things. He's not just a good teacher he's a really good friend and is always open to everything. He gives great advice and is always encouraging his students to be their best. He is a great marker and is pretty thorough. Totally recommend his anthropology and travel and tourism classes!

Makes learning fun, with realistic and tangable examples. I can choose not to take a note at all in one of his classes, and completely recall everything that was learned. That is a sign of a truly good teacher.

As everyone has said, he is a good teacher and very interesting to listen to, the only thing is sometimes he talks a lot and its very interesting, but you are so into the lesson you dont write anything down, or there are no notes, so you find yourself failing. haha

I had Mr. Kennedy for civics, which I thought would be a very boring class. I was wrong. Mr. Kennedy is so passionate about the subjects he teaches, that he makes his students interested too. He really knows his stuff.

This is one teacher if any at gci that knows his stuff, his notes are not brutal he gives you enough of a basis for you to make you own notes and expand upon, great for university preparation, his tests are challenging, and he is able to stimulate intelligent thought in a classroom, during heated debates within the class, he never tells us that our opinions are wrong. He is not a biased teacher as stated, but a fair one, if you study and put in effort you get a good mark

Tough teacher ... but he only was because he cared about his students' progress. Overall a great teacher and person. I was lucky enough to have him twice (Grade 10 Civics and Grade 12 Politics) and from then on he inspired me to to seriously think about becoming a history/social studies teacher.
