I've had Mr. Mitchell for grade ten and grade 12 English. Although he can be a quiet teacher he is patient and understanding. His grading is fair and he will prepare you for the major assignments. All in all Mr. Mitchell is a very good teacher and I'm happy I was in his class.

It is true that Mr. Mitchel has his passion in English, however, he seldom teaches his class and literally EVERY SINGLE PERSON in his class is on his/her phone during class time. In addition, he hates and will not explain your questions when you ask him kindly. For every assignment, there's never any rubrics or requirements, he tells you to be concise in your response, but if you do, you get a 70 (misleading). Definitely not recommending this teacher!

I could write an essay on how great he is. I've had Mr. Mitchell for Grade 10 Gifted English, Grade 11 AP English and now I'm taking his Writer's Craft course. He encourages creativity and helps you find your own voice when writing. Most importantly, he's always passionate about what he teaches. He's also laid back and incredibly easy to approach when you want to get a second opinion on essay and story ideas. Easily the best teacher I've ever had and what I'll miss most about RHHS.

Mr. Mitchell is extremely understanding and fair. He is very helpful and always clarifies if you don't understand something. His marking is very fair and often easier than I thought he would be. I always look forward to his class and lessons and his metaphors are everything! His workload is very manageable and definitely reasonable for grade 11U. I think that his passion for literature and English can really be seen making his classes very interesting and enjoyable.

He's a really kind person. His Grade 10 English class is much easier than his Grade 11 AP English class. You don't get very much assignments, so you either have to do good on the few that you get in order to get a respectable mark. He doesn't USUALLY bump - unless you give him a good reason (even then it's unlikely). Overall, kind person, fun class.

I had him for two years and he was my favourite English teacher in HS. He talks to the class about due dates, and assignments and what we prefer to do. A lot of his projects are very open ended so it's hard to screw up, just make use of the opportunity to be creative. SIT AT THE FRONT OF THE CLASS! His one flaw is his quite voice, if you sit in the back, like I did my first year with him, you will fall asleep and won't get much out of the class.

Very professional and passionate. However, several problem are his lack of control on the class and the time it takes to hand back evaluations. Besides that, he is a just marker and very understanding when it comes to giving extensions as well as offering clarification and support. This is only grade 10 gifted English so I cannot speak for the students for his AP class.

Fantastic teacher. He's clear on what he wants but he leaves lots of room for creativity. He's always open to hearing everyone's opinions and there is no doubt that he one of the most intelligent people I've met. Decent workload, fair marker and and a great teacher. Just be restpectful and listen to what he has to say. I know he's rather quiet, but trust me, he doesn't say things without a purpose. Lovely teacher.

There's always room for creativity in his class, make sure you use it and you'll get an 80. Only downside is he doesn't round up in his grade 10 course - I got an 89.5 and he rounded that to an 89, not a 90 :,( He says he does in grade 12 though

I find that Mr. Mitchell is very outspoken, and that he doesn't seem to get much respect in his own classroom. As a result, it is very easy to get on his good side simply by contributing as much as yo
