He knows his stuff, and will do everything in his power to explain it to you in the most confusing way possible. He'll leave mid sentence, leave you waiting for 20 minutes in the middle of telling you what to do, and if you make a bad first impression you might as well kiss your credit goodbye. He's a good guy and I respect the man, but good god is his class frustrating. There is not enough room to talk about those power points and tutorial vids, y'all know what I mean.
He is a good guy. He is nice. He is more of a supervisor because in media arts, all we did was watch and learn from videos and work.
He's a really nice guy. He is helpful. Must have him.
I really like Derk Elworthy because he make power points that are really good for demonstrating things in the class. Also he is a teacher that really like his job he is always happy nice, knowledge, poliete, helpful, and if he make good ideas into improve your work. Great job Derk Elworthy keep up what you are doing.
While at Saint David's, I had the pleasure of being taught by Derek Elworthy twice. When I look back at my high school experience, he was easily one of the most influential teachers that I had. He is extremely knowledgable and passionate about what he teachers, and this is reflected in each and every one of his lessons. His passion is contagious. Down to earth and approachable, he is a teacher that truly believes in each of his students. The world needs more teachers like Derek Elworthy.
I'm in his 2011-2012 first semester grade 10 comm. tech class. He has helped me make a great commercial for a summative with his suggestions.
Mr. Elworthy is one of the best teachers at our school. He is amazing! I have learned so much because of him and he is one of those teachers who truly believe in his students. He shares stories about
you either really like him or really hate him. hard to get his individual attention
I miss spending endless hours in the comm tech room and the dark room after school chatting with him... one of my favourite teachers :)
Sometimes he can be a bit confusing...but he's a good teacher and very lenient towards work. Example..if he wanted two things done by a certain date, he would say just do one if it was high detail.
He's an awesome teacher. Sometimes hard to find, he sometimes leaves mid sentence. But such a fun class! Yay for elworthy, I'll be doin comm tehc in grade 11 and 12 for sure.
Awesome teacher! He was a great tech teacher... And he went to Hong Kong to teach underpriveledged children... How cool is that?
