He has done a bit of everything and is always willing to tell a funny story about anything. I have always hated English but never minded going to his class. Aside from being an amazing teacher he is also a big teddy bear. Easy to talk to if life is hard and he advertises this to all of his classes. If I need to talk, he is my go to guy, and I know he has helped someone very close to me as well. It may be hard but seriously if anything is wrong go to English and ask for Gellert. He is magical.

This guy here. By far the best English teacher I have had. He is one of the few teachers that gets almost ready to go to University. Other teachers baby you and give you good marks but he makes you work for your marks, and in the end your better for it. The guy is friggin' hysterical, knowledgeable, and if you put in the effort and time you will definitely see an improvement in your writing. Exams: he tells you whats on it, listen to what he is talking about on all the books and you will score.

A very fair teacher. He doesn't choose favourites like a lot of other teachers do, which I really appreciate. He knows what he's talking about and tries to teach it in an interesting fashion. Although sometimes his repetitive stories get kind of annoying , they are very interesting the first time you hear them. Easy to talk to, very helpful when you need it, and clear with what he is saying. He treats students like adults rather than five year. Prepares you for University. Not tough, just fair

It made me uncomfortable when he would sit with the girls in class to gossip or make comments about which actresses he drools over. Inappropriate stories which made you feel awkward and his class absolutely ruined my day.

I think Gellert is one of the best people I've met in my entire life. He makes me laugh, helps me when I need it and actually cares about his students. A lot of people think that he is very unprofes

One of the best teachers at Mayfield. If he sees potential in you, he really pushes you hard and makes you challenge yourself. He is demanding, but it really prepares you well for university.

Mr. Gellert not only understands his students, he knows his stuff! He is very fair with marks. If you do the work you get the mark. Simple as that. His class discussions were very important because you get to speak your mind and not be embarrassed about your opinion. He's funny and makes Shakespeare fun to learn about. Thanks Mr Gellert for being a great teacher!

I think he should spend less time trying to be friends with students. Plus sometimes I found he didn't know what he was talking about. A little more professional would be nice.

Had him in Grade 9. He was OK. I am now a honor student and attend West Chester Univ. in Pennsylvania, USA. To be honest, I didn't care much for his personality
