I loved Mr. Winegarden and I'm glad I had him before he retired. He made history fun to go to because of his impressions and all these weird parties he'd throw, and he was always nice and helpful. One of the best teachers I've had.

Mr Winegarden knows a little bit about everything to do with politics and he enjoys sharing this knowledge. More importantly, he tries to know every student personally. He truly loves his work and it shows.

I'm 3 years into university and Mr. Winegarden is still one of the best teachers I have ever had! His lessons sparked my first interest in politics and he inspired me to pursue a major in political science. He is one of the few teachers who taught me how to write a proper essay and prepared me for university workloads. One of the best teachers at Sir Wil.

Mr. Winegarden is an awesome teacher! I had him for grade 10 Canadian History class. He loves what he teaches, and is great at doing so. I don't like history class, but he made me look forward to hearing his lesson everyday!

The best teacher I've had all of high school. Strongly opinionated (Though sometimes to borderline arrogance) but very knowledgeable. Mr. Winegarden has always provided a challenging but rewarding course and I've always found myself looking forward to his class. I hope he continues to teach for as long as he can because he makes learning a breeze, always reviews, always helps, and is overall a wonderful teacher to have at Sir. Wil.

This man is what I always imagined the perfect teacher to be - funny, enthusiastic about the topic at hand and always willing to help. Going to class was an adventure, you never knew what would be waiting for you. One day we were french revolutionaries, gathered around a table drinking fake wine, the other we were Europe's biggest leaders, deciding Napoleon's fate. He's always willing to help and paying attention and participating will get you far. The work is totally worth it! Best class ever!

Mr. Winegarden can be an amazing teacher when he wants to be. Mr. Winegarden is thorough, marks fairly, and is very knowledgeable – but almost always has his mind made up already about everything, and generally seems to think his opinion is superior. He sometimes treats you like you're a four-year old too, and he insists you don't take notes while he talks ("put your pencils down, just let me teach") -.-
Overall, he's alright. He can be amazing at times, but rude too.
