He never hands anything back and you don't know how you are doing. He is very unfair.
Nice teacher, kind guy. Only thing that I thought wan't very good was that assignments were either handed out way after or not at all, which made it difficult to figure out what needed improvement.
He's not a bad teacher if you're in a senior grade but for grade 10 he doesn't give any feedback and when he does its vague. He still hasn't handed back our essays/ every other thing we've handed in from 3 months ago!! He says inappropriate things and he doesn't stop talking... Ever.
What to say about Burgess... Well I know A LOT about his life, but not a lot about the actual course I am in. I only had TWO pages of significant notes out of the whole semester, yet even so, they weren't that relevant. He consistently wastes time and frustrates the entire class with his monotonous 'lessons'. He is also creepy and unhelpful and just an overall questionable human being. 10/10 would not reccomend
Mr. Burgess is rude, innapropriate and very annoying. He singles people out infront of the entire class and is an egoistic pain in the ass. Assignments are not fully explained and he shows favouritism to some students in the classroom. He is immature, aragent and loves to hear himself talk. This teacher made me hate english. My advice, if you see his name on your schedule drop the class or switch teachers. Trust me.
He does not explain fully. This teacher play favourites and excludes students and sungles them out. Inappropriate use of terminology.
Talks way too much, the entire class consists of him talking about himself and his life. It's understandable to a certain degree, but when it becomes egotistical then that's too far. When giving out an essay he provides no information whatsoever and students are left confused. Not a great experience so far.
Mr.Burgess is an extremely helpful, knowledgeable English teacher. His methods are a little unorthodox, but that makes learning much more interesting. He is a kind teacher with many anecdotal stories
Mr. Burgess is awesome! he always has something interesting and relevant to say. He made English class better than ever! Thanks B :D
I love Burgess. Hes so smart that i actually learned about english!!
Burgess really needs to start teaching and stop talking. I didn't learn anything in his class. He also has a weird habit of bringing up unrelated, awkward and inappropriate things, and jokes.
You are needing to not talk aboutyour son so much in class and start talkin about what we are needing to work on!
Okay, so maybe now I run in the opposite direction when I see him coming, but when you have him twice (three times, once) in a day... can you blame me?
Has great writing ability. Tends to talk about himself and his work quite often. Doesn't stick to the course outline, and takes forever to hand things back. BUT very smart and helpful!
He did so not tell us the project was worth 10% of our mark! A pompus, phoney, show off. Your writing is impressive, but it wouldn't hurt if you talked a bit less during class.
Worst teacher ever. I have spent over two months in has class and havn't receieved any work back. Stop talking about how artsy and cultured you are and HAND BACK SOME FREAKING WORK
mr. burgess means well, and cares very much about his students. but an artsy intellectual like him is just so out of place at this school, friction naturally results.
He's super. He lets the class have imput and participate a lot which is always great. I hope I have him next year!
You're smart, there's no doubt about that. But seriously, get over yourself. Try teaching instead of bragging about how smart you are.
Mr. Burgess is one of the best teachers I have had!!!
Meh, he's alrite. Gets a bit too excited about his little stories and opinions though.
