He teaches in a way that gives you a ton of freedom and creativity which actually makes you learn more. He's very knowledgeable on the subjects he teaches as well as current events/social issues; he isn't afraid to tell you his beliefs/opinions and will accept yours whole heartedly. He's very witty and sarcastic which sometimes draws people away from him. In his class I gained self esteem, opinions, and confidence.. That's far more important than anything you could find In a textbook.

There's not enough characters to describe Mr. T.
I feel like the people who don't like him just don't understand him. He is one of the most caring and moving people I know. He pushes and pushes you to achieve your goals and to be a better person. I really don't know where I would have ended up if it wasn't for him.

Such a smart man with a lot of insight who cares about his subject so much. I feel bad when some of his classes aren't interested in learning because he has so much knowledge to offer. A really nice person as well who actually CARES about people.

T may seem like he doesnt make a lot of sense sometimes, mean or unhelpful, but in the end he simply did it for the best and was trying to make YOU think. Many confuse that. He is very inspirational.

He is a very nice guy and really smart and inspiring, but he can hardly ever give a straight answer to a simple question. He has on occasion offended students unintentionally with his "jokes".

Even though he's seems rough, Mr T challenges you to stick to your own opinions and stand strong by what you believe. He cares about his students and works hard to turn them into strong adults.

He was my teacher years ago in Surrey, but I want to add something: he provokes thought, inspires creativity, and challenges boundaries. And ... funny. What else can you ask for in an educator? Tx

He is self absorbed, and lacks the ability to effectively teach a class. He is too wrapped up in the high school scene. Lacks professionalism.

Cool at first, but intimidating as the years go on, unless you are one of his friends. Grade 8 is fun, but less philosophy and more work in later grades

So many good stories. Can play favorites, but he has more favorites then non-favorites. Good guy, had a lot of fun working on the play. I think he might have been mad when i had to change out of his drama class though. Hopefully he doesn't holdgrudges
