Knows any question I have for him. Teaches like it's a passion and he is just an all-around amazing guy. never in my life have i heard him raise his voice. The exams do get tough, but he prepares you for them a lot. Great teacher and easy marker
Honestly the greatest teacher ever. He puts so much time into extracurriculars, really shows his passion for teaching
he covers material really quickly, but if you enjoy the class and pay attention it can be really fun and you will learn a lot!
Fantastic teacher! Fantastic, fantastic, fantastic. Always willing to help after school, at lunch, anytime, for as long as you want. His puns are the so-bad-they're-good kind, and his classes are informative and fun. Has a great teaching style and honestly is more of a friend than a teacher sometimes. Plus cookies! He makes Latin is the highlight of my schedule :)
easy and fun teacher/class. Made the course VERY fun. easy marking too.
Fantastical! The best teacher I've ever had. He talks to all of his students and he actually knows what he's doing. He makes an effort to understand and help all his students.
He is one of the best teachers I have and is very knowledgeable
He made me like a language I didn't like before and thats hard
HE IS THE EASIEST GUY EVER! YOU DON'T EVEN HAVE TO STUDY!
Super knowledgeable and super chill and overall one of the coolest people in life. I don't know how he does it but he somehow just it.
The answer my friendss is Mr. McLareennn, the answer is Mr. McLarennn #inmclarenwetrust
best teacher ever, he really knows how to keep students interested in latin.
He's a nice teacher, very helpful when you come for help, what more is there to say?
Mr McLaren is one of the BEST teachers ever! You would think learning a new language that no one really uses would be complicated and hard but Mr McLaren not only teaches latin really well, but he also makes it super fun :) Im glad i took latin
mr mclaren is just awesome :) having him in grade nine definitely made the year a lot more... well, doable, and he's just fun in general
Super helpful and really funny when he wants to be! Is amazingly patient.
He's a great teacher, and he really does care about what you do (though his marks seem to go up merely as length increases). He's lenient on late assignments, which is good at times, and bad at others. Overall a great teacher
one of my best teachers , very helpful and caring , and teaches really well
Amazing teacher. This guy is really caring and thoughtful. He can be approached if you have problems with latin or otherwise. Teachers like him are inspirational and you dont get the regular awkward teacher small talk...
One of the best teachers EVER. He never gets upset and is an amazing teacher. He always has a song or trick to help u remember your grammar. He marks really easy. Just pay attention in class & getting a 90 is easy! He is great to talk to, about latin or otherwise! No one could teach latin better!
Mr. McLaren is always eager to give cookies to those who ask.
a very nice and caring teacher, he takes the time to explain, but usually you get everything the first time. he is never too busy to help you, even if it has nothing to do with school. very knowledgeable and very helping. Very good personality. Never stop teaching!
he's an incredible teacher.. you learn without realizing and he's never too busy to explain something to you twice. or ten times.. whatever it takes for you to succeed. his overhead notes are slightly disorganized but otherwise, he's incredible.
Mr McLaren is the best teacher you will ever meet. He's so devoted to his subject and his students; he makes Latin so much fun! YAY MR MCLAREN!!!!!
i love mr. McCleren!!!! he's one of the sweetest old guys you'll ever meet, so if you're going into first year latin be really nice to him, or third year students will honestly hunt you down... that's how much we care about this teacher!
He always does his best to make you understand (although he normally gets through the first time). GO MR MCLAREN!!!!!!!!!!
best teacher ever. fun guy , great guy, learned a lot from him, what more can i say, never a sad or boring day in his class.
Amazing teacher, I sometimes got a little bored learning the Latin grammar and all that but it's obvious he absolutely loves Latin. He always does his best to be lenient with students and I've never seen him angry. I forgot about a quiz once, and after watching me sit there in frustration for ten minutes, he offered to let me write it the following day after school.
Mr Mclaren is the best!!! He was even able to convince me to go to Classics conference, and now I'm all excited about it!!! =D...so supportive, too!!!
Great Teacher. One of those few standouts who's teaching and personality you will remember forever. He is so very dedicated. Great Teacher. I can't say any more. Three "euges" for Mr. McLaren (McLatin)
Seriously cool teacher...teaches well AND is also fun at tha same time
An amazing teacher. Third year Latin can get repetitive sometimes, but by the time you're in third, you just love Mr. McLaren to the ends of Petronius for his dedication and passion. And a correction for anyone who says he only pays attention to the gifted kids: wrong. He pays attention to the motivated kids. Which you, clearly, are not.
A very nice person and teacher, but he talks too much. A little more communication with students would probably make him a better teacher.
BEST TEACHER EVER!!!!!!! ULTIMATE OWNAGE!!!! INTERACTS WITH CLASS!!!!!! SUPER FUNNY!!!!! UBER COOOL!!!!!!!! YOU WANT THIS TEACHER!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
bad history teacher. constantly talks w/ his eyes closed. (???)made us watch sooo many boring videos. never could understand him with his lisp.
Mr. McLaren is the greatest teacher in history. Period.
probably the best teacher i've ever come across... passionate in what he does which is what alot of others lack. GO BIG MACC
I took OAC English with him last year. He is organized and explains the concepts well, but he is by far one of the hardest English teacher I've ever met.
Man, he's like the ONLY teacher that likes his work, GO BIG MAC!!! :) AND it's NOT true that he only pays attention to the gifties, even i'm a giftie too.=)
I like him because hes too lazy to teach and instead plays us videos all day.
Great teacher, but I have noticed that he pays more attention to the gifted students, but then yet, classics club is full of gifties, still a great guy
Nice teacher but sometimes classes are pretty boring!
I TRIED TO CALCULATE JUST EXACLTY HOW GOOD A TEACHER MR. MCLAREN IS AND MY CALCULATOR EXPLODED. TRUE STORY. BEST TEACHER KNOWN TO MAN.
very boring fell asleep in his class he only paid attention to the gifted students in the class
If you only had him for a weeks worth of school it wouldnt be to bad but WOW, MONOTONE really gets anoying after a while. Bad English teacher -> Good Guy
latin is a hard course to make cool. he hasnt found it yet
McLaren is an excellent teacher. He tries and puts so much effort into his lessons which seem to go unoted. Well they aren't in vain. Great teacher there McLaren!
very passionate about what he does, he is a role model for all of us
He expects the best and get's it. He is te funnest teacher I have had.
Awesome teacher! Very devoted to Latin, and makes class fun...most of the time
Took The Time To Take Me Aside And Tell Me He Believed In Me :)
