Mr. North is definitely one of the most organized teachers at the school. He always has his lessons planned out two weeks earlier and also tries to keep the Google Classroom organized (despite it being such a disorganized learning tool). He is very knowledgeable about computer science and is always willing to give extra help to students who are struggling. Obviously, like all teachers, he favours students who pay attention in class regularly, take notes and ask questions. Overall, he is amazing!

Honestly he's a really good teacher (organized, knowledgable, etc etc) but he favorites people waaay to much. I always ended up getting lower marks than my peers despite delivering the same amount of work and staying on topic/participating in class. IMO he marks very subjectively for a course like tech. Other than that I can't think of anything "bad" about him, pretty chill dude and you can tell he puts a lot of effort into his lessons. (Just so unfair I m calling BS)

Mr North is the type of teacher who accepts answers as long as you have a convincing proof or support. His teaching method engages the class in a discussion which I think helps a student learn more, rather than read off a powerpoint and assign textbook work. Tests are fairly easy, if you engage in class discussions you should have no problems. Just a great teacher overall. Definitely on my top 10 teachers list.

He is honestly one of the best teachers in the school. As long as you do your work and put in effort, he will give you a mark boost. He is friendly and very fair in marking, so he is one of my favourite teachers at Rick Hansen. He does not cut corners in lessons or marking and is a reasonable marker.

Mr. North is one of the BEST teachers in the school. He is extremely helpful, wants his students to succeed, and will go out of his way to help you. He is extremely knowledgeable, and you actually take something out of his class. He is also a very fair marker and will give mark boosts if deserving. If you have him as a teacher, consider yourself BLESSED.

Might seem knowledgeable but in reality he is such a boring teacher! Always picking on students and making us feel uncomfortable.. Doesn't even take the time to understand what his students are going through before judging. Really, really dislike him. Just try not falling asleep in his classes...

he's alright. extremely monotone, almost robotic, and makes you want to fall asleep sometimes. jokes are horrible. takes a technology topic and makes it a lecture (example irrelevant stuff about history). he has knowledge for sure, and he teaches you and he will call you out if your shaky on your knowledge. assignments were difficult and he expects a lot. picks favorites and can sometimes snake you, but overall he pushes you. not a guy u want for a markbooster, but probably to learn stuff

I enjoyed his course but it is very hard to get a good mark, he doesn't make it easy. He was my teacher for 3 years in a row, his class was interesting and fun, but there were many things he didn't make very clear, plus he is a very hard marker.

Oh my goodness. He is one of the BEST teachers I've had. I enjoyed being in his class and I loved every minute of it, whether it was good or bad. However, he marks extremely hard and you can only understand him if you listen to him carefully in the class. He's not one of those teachers who go very easily on you. He marks fairly to most of the students, so be nice!
