easily my favourite teacher. I'm in grade 12 this year and would recommend that you attempt to get in as many of his classes as you can. treat him with respect he will do the same for you, don't bs him just be straight up and he will work with you. It's not an "easy A" or anything with him you will have to work for your grade but he's a teacher that you don't mind working for. One caveat if you don't have good attendance Don't bother if you don't want to be there he doesn't want you wasting time

His Law class is honestly the best class I've taken since I have been at Terry Fox. He is the most knowledgeable teacher I have had and spends time helping you if you need it. He is a bit intimidating when you first go into the class but as long as you are on his good side, you are good. Over all don't go into Mr Hurst's law class unless you work best with textbook work. Van Os treats his law 12 as a first year criminology course. Ask for him!

Amazing teacher, he taught with a passion that actually made me want to listen and I learned a ton from him. Loved the way he harrassed everyone in class too.

Seems like he does a hazing process with the other teachers on us Grade 9 students. Very funny; I can tell he's trying to break us down character-wise.

Slightly annoying...wants students to give their opinions, yet gets all mad if he doesn't agree with it. I spent an entire semester never speaking in his class. Heaven forbid he should disagree with me...
