He was my teacher at West Hill from 2001-2004. I can honestly say that he changed my life and I wouldn't be where I am today without him as a role model. Mr. Fewson taught me lessons and skills I use everyday. He taught me how to learn and not take things at face value. His courses were gruelling, but that's how I learned to interrogate my research or argument to make it stronger. That said, he was totally wrong about the Liberals dominating forever as our natural governing party.

Take his grade 12 courses. This is the teacher that will prepare you for university. You think that having an essay and then a test for him a week apart is too close together? Thank him later.

Fewson's passion in teaching is unmistakeable. I was in his philosophy class in 06/07 and I just finished my first year @ York. He prepared me very well for the 2 philosophy courses I took last year.

Although Mr. Fewson is a great teacher, he is a bit too arrogant for his own good. As a teacher, you should never try to make your students feel like they are stupid.
