Estabrooks is not a bad teacher, and is a nice person. Don't slack, and give him respect. He'll respect you back. Lectures aren't the most engaging, but he gives really clear notes & lessons that I was able to remember very well, and they were helpful for reviewing. Thanks Esta.
Although contrary to popular beliefs, Mr Estabrooks is one of the nicest teachers at Central. He is super understanding and does not discriminate based on student's popularity. I can tell that he truly enjoys teaching and spending time with his students. He is super organised and marks really fast. I have so much respect for him for all he has been through. Really sad that I don't have him as a teacher this year.
He has a big heart, he has been through a lot (son's death, prostate cancer) and he really does know his stuff. He is a generous and lenient guy, and although other people may say otherwise, I have enjoyed my time in his classroom for the 2 years I've had him. His tests are very very reasonable and he honestly knows his material. Esta, you da best
Not a great teacher, but maybe not such a bad guy.
He actually has a really big heart. The only reason why he comes off as mean is because he's shy. He is so understanding and kind, and he never takes marks off for handing stuff late *cough* science teachers... I love him so much, his class is my fav
Absolutely useless piece of trash. Can't teach for his life, and justifies his inability with his "moodiness", yet takes no excuses from students. Rude, disrespectful, and as other comments have said here, a jerk. Students feel threatened constantly.
Condescending and rude towards even the brightest students in the class. Most of them are better at it than him anyways. Marks arbitrarily and cannot teach, which would have been useful. Terrible year of math.
Overall, a nice guy. I had him for grade 10 math and was always willing to help out students - available at almost every lunch hour, and very accommodating. He can be condescending sometimes, and may come off as unapproachable, but he totally is. Never does admit to the class if he is wrong (blames students for "talking" or "sitting wrong" while he's trying to solve a problem) which is the only problem I ever had with him. Great teacher overall.
Terrible teacher. He always uses his "crankiness" as an excuse for his unacceptably rude behaviour towards students, and will never admit that he's wrong. His idea of teaching is doing the easiest question in the homework, leaving the students to struggle with the rest, and then refusing to help them. Stubborn, sarcastic, and absolutely lame with his humour, he truly is not a very efficient teacher. I cannot count the times that he has made me feel inferior.
Worst year of math ever.
Loved him, had him for baseball first which really helped, but he's actually so nice.
Excellent math teacher, very helpful. He always have question periods for students who are struggling or confused and he is always very patient with his students.
He is nice and very helpgul but could be a teen wee bit more understanding. He has suffered. Great teacher otherwise.
I hated him! I just got him this year, and he was away for the first 2 months... I want the substitute back! He makes those horrible seating plans, and he doesn't let you change seats! I hate how he t
He's stupid and doesn't know how to teach properly
Worst teacher ever. So unapproachable, doesn't teach anything, mean. Stresses us out and really a horrible guy.
makes data a hell of a lot harder than advanced functions and vectors/calculus. I don't even know how that's possible, but he manages to do it. :|
Nice guys hes pre chill and funny, dont get on his bad side, and if you have him for Grade 11 math, good luck sucka
Wonderful Teacher!! Truly knows mathematics and helps all people learn the way they want to learn. One of the best teacher in my opinion. Very helpful, clear, and really has a passion for teaching!!
Great teacher. A little boring to listen to if that makes you fall asleep, but I found his class very easy to get through because he made everything so clear. If you do your homework, its a BREEZE (as with most).
i dunno...math class....i flew through it :) he was the perfect teacher in my opinion cz the way he teaches is perfect for the way i learn
Accounting is such a useful skill, and although that workbook got tedious at times, it has come in so handy in university-level business. Good job teaching accounting!
i hate math but he's an awesome teacher! now if he's reading this how about you turn that 22 into something over a 50!
Amazing teacher, had him for grade 9! It's very sad what happened and all of us here at central feel for him.
what a boring teacher... DONT take accounting, umm how many people dropped that class...um 25?
Don't have him as a teach, but hes great at helping run Christian Club
Nice, helpful and quite easy. Except I chose a bad course: accouting 11, which is so boring that it can literally turn your brain into concrete.
