Dan White, straight to the point period, you need a tough skin in life, his jokes were meant to prepare you for the real world that doesn't care how well you do. There were no participation trophies on his class or in life. I have the utmost respect for him well after graduating now ( class of 98), ran into him in a bar/ grill had a great conversation where he corrected my use of the word seen/saw was a great time. A gun under each arm on our year end trip at the playdium in Toronto. Great man.
Whitey has done more for me than any other teacher I've had all throughout high school. He's understanding & compassionate to his students-so long as you extend the same respect towards him. If you make lame excuses as to why you can't preform then he won't be kind, he'll tell you to take a zero and that's that. He's out to see kids succeed, he'll be blunt with you about school/attendance/grades/college and tell it like it is. He want's everybody to do their best and he'll push for that.
Dad! I loved being in your class! I love how we have the same sense of humor and can laugh about jokes that others may not find funny. I learned alot in your class and im excited to take it again. I had alot of fun working in the booth, thank you for teaching me how to control it. You are a great guy and an amazing teacher. love you! -Toyota
white really is an awesome guy. for everyone who is saying that he's rude, lazy, etc, get your head on straight. it's called being forward and honest. he's not afraid to tell you you're doing something wrong, & in the long shot it'll help you. i do agree he plays favorites, but i can understand why a teacher would like a student thats dedicated over a student that does nothing. he really does care greatly for the students, the school, and the arts. keep rockin the auditorium whitey!
mr dan white made me feel 100% canadian. best teacher ever. thanks mr white. all the way from africa, cindy lou who
Dan White is the best teacher to ever work at SCITS. He has always been helpful with anything my children have needed.....
Liked him at first, but over the years, he just became rude and bitter. Dude, you need to wake up, and fix your life.
White you were a man who loved the stage and your pupils. But in the passing years you have become bitter...and aged. I watched you go from forty to niteyfive in a semester...please find your smile.
Mr.White is a guy who's been through a lot, and still came out on top, even if he might not feel like it sometimes. Mr.White, even though I'm just getting to know you, You have changed the way i am.
If you can't stand the jokes, get out of the auditorium. ONe of the best teachers. Can't wait for Drama! Hope this year's better for you, Whitey!
Mr.White is not rude, or mean. He is Blunt and Honest. Both qualities are rare today. I am glad that he posseses both. I have amazing respect for him. As should all of you, he is an amazing person.
School spirit award right here. He does more for the school then most people know. Very talented and hard working. Taught me a lot about drama and life in general.
mr whiite! he is a sick teacher. he makes fun of everyone, man, but not to be mean! its pretty funny but yah sometimes his corny lines get old. spice it up whitey
i agree and the people who dont' like him do nothing in his classes and the ones he teases he likes other then the ppl that do nothing. He does the most for our school.
Whitey rocks one of my fav teachers he teases people but for real hes a good guy and teacher the people who cant take jokes have no buissness being in a class that focus on comedy
but i'd have to say, he is a deciated teacher and i respeact him a lot. He does more for that school that people know. Whitey rocks!
Yeah, Whitey plays favourites... but he also doesn't avoid saying he doesn't like a student who just doesn't try.
Whitey is a great teacher! I have him for grade 10 English as well as grade 10 drama this semester! Hes a little stressed right now but it'll all be better after the SCITS REVIEW.
Mr. White has made me cry 9 times in my drama class and he always constantly yells at me for no reason. One time he said i had no friends than laughed at me! infront of every 1!
mr white is an awesome teacher he cares alot about the students, very talented and over all a great guy
Wow!I love White;he honestly cares for students,puts in countless hours for the Revue and other productions, has a big heart, is hugely committed-i could go on!
agreed...makes students feel like nothing by what he thinks is funny..criticises them when he hurts them, and completely plays favorites. and he's a talented man but despite what he thinks, he is NOT funny.
I've seen students reduced to tears by what he views as harmless teasing. Shamelessly plays favourites, at the rest of the classes expense. A very damaged man.
