Best man around. cares for his students, so passionate about teaching, and is overall an insanely smart guy. His class is tough, but he's just preparing you for the real world. You might want it easy,

He's gotta be the funniest and nicest guy EVER! However, his teaching is quite lacking. He's difficult to understand and never gives a straight answer to a question.

Sure its tough, but i tell you he got me ready for university. He makes you strive to truely understand and do so independently. It makes it stick so I'm a much better physics student because of it,

He was really difficult in the beginning but once you get the hang of him he's a great teacher.

I would love it if he could teach a lesson without making a mistake on the board and getting a student to fix it for him, then asking how that was calculated. Isn't that his job?

Mr. Gateman is my absolute favourite science teacher so far! 12U physics was my favourite class ever! If I come back for a fifth year, I'm taking the class again, "just for fun!"

He doesn't disipline his class well, very hard to work in such a noisy and crowded environment. Other than that, work is generally easy.
