He's a fun teacher, very helpful, but the assignments he gives are not really useful in life and are just for his own purposes. This class is a free block and everyone does nothing.
Never had him but he seemed like a good man who had a lot of peace within him. #rip
I feel like Mr. Olson is one of the most misunderstood & underrated teachers. Sure, he doesn't do much in class. Sure, it isn't the most professionally taught course. But, Mr. Olson is deep down a warm, caring, thoughtful, and kindhearted person. He didnt teach me much related to the course, but he taught me a few big lessons on how to be a better person. In my opinion, that is the most Applied Skill anyone could ever learn. No use in giving advice for future students because he's not returning.
mr olson was srs pretty great loved him
he has good recommendation for netflix which he watches in class
Mr Olson might seem really nice and jolly at the beginning of the year, but it's not going to be all sunshine and rainbows. If you thought that Synergy AS was going to be a free block, that's not really the case. Super confusing and gives deadlines for projects a week before with no indication of what he wants for the project, probably because he doesn't know what to do either. His marks come from random letter generator I'll bet and really just think twice before you say he's a good teacher.
Oh my god kill me, he's awful. Doesn't give clear instructions. When you do what he asks you to do (like give feedback to him and tell him if you need an extended due date) he doesn't even listen to what you're saying and totally ignores the problem. Plus, he can be pretty rude. Not helpful at all.
This teacher doesn't even teach he's soooooo lazy. Ok teacher i guess
He doesn't teach at all, probably only beginning of each term. Getting an A is super easy.
this teacher is way too unpredictable
This guy is really chill, but also understanding and stuff. Good teacher.
Mr. Olson is every Synergy student's nightmare. Class is chill and most of it is spent on Facebook/not even in it at all, but he gives the weirdest and most inconvenient assignments. He expects you to blog and email it to him every day, and we were also supposed to develop "empathy for the homeless" and go out and beg for our food. You either hand in your assignments and get 100% or not hand it in and get 0%. If he doesn't like you good luck. Gave someone an I last year. For Applied Skills.
Mr. Olson expects the students to teach themselves. However, if this were possible, we wouldn't be coming to school.
Photography class is an easy A and sometimes we don't do anything :D
I think he tries to get the students involved, more or less, unfortunately, an automatic A isn't always the best motivation for teenagers. His field trips are fun though, some hands-on experience, but I kind of found his class to be more of a free block than anything else.
He won't teach you anything... Believes that all learning should come from the student. Good theory but it never works out.
This teacher has great field trips and have great movies.
Best teacher everrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr. Very nice. Good teacher. Helpfull. I'm going to cs for him this year
I had him for Photography. A very nice guy whose class I really enjoyed!
great teacher know alot about computers and drawings. really nice person
Even thought he doesn't do much, he has some pretty interesting projects for his students. SUPER HELPFUL even if you aren't in his class, will give u supplies, room, printing..etc for other projects
WOW i thought that he would have better ratings.. o wel DUDE its a free A in his class >_> U GUYS IF U GET LIKE A EVERY TERM THEN U DONT EVEN NEED TO GO TO FINALS AND U GET LOWEST OF C+ if u try then atleast a B if ur good at the subject then it another A and i agree to easy of a teacher. he dosnt care wht u do in class so every day its a HUGE mess lol great class to catch up on any late homework =D
Well he's easy, good completion marks, good marks for me= Great Person and understands us kinda..
Knows his stuff. Talented at what he does obviously. Doesn't know how to communicate very well with students though. Has favorites and ignores everyone else. Doesn't seem passionate about teaching at all, but I still respect him becasue he knows his stuff and he's talented, but why is he a teacher?? He seems sick and tired of it all the time, and he acts like the students aren't even there. I know some kids don't care, but it doesn't mean everyone doesn't care. He should try to explain and help more.
awesomest socials/applied skills teacher to have...until you have to study for finals
lol probably the easiest teacher i had in grade 8, all he does is give us some work to do/ project, and just sits at his computer.. asked me to help him install some software on other computers because i got A on every assignment (im a girl btw) too easy, lots of free time :)
he is the easiest teacher. he gives us a homework assignment and if you hand it in late you still get full marks. we had an open book test and use of the computer, all he does is be lazy and go on the computer most of the time. but a very easy teacher to get an A. best teacher ever.....
AWESOME TEACHER!!!! GREATEST TEACHER EVER!!! GAVE US FREE BLOCKS FOR THE WHOLE WEEK!!! Doesnt teach much, but thats all good.
Good guy, crappiest teacher I have ever had. I understand that you want a teacher that's nice and easy. But you also want a freaking teacher! You know! Somebody that...teaches you stuff!
HAHA...WHAT A JOKE! NICE GUY HARD TO UNDERSTAND AND HE OBVIOUSLY LOVES HIS COMPUTER!
Always typing away on his computer, gave me a mark without checking my assignment...I should just tell him I did my assignments and get marks for lying >.> (after spending all that time to do an assignment he won't even look at!) I also learned nothing from him...
OMG I WAS THE ONLY ONE HE GAVE AN "N" TO IN WORK HABITS FOR THE 2 YEARS I HAD HIM AND HE GAVE ME AN "N" FOR EVERY TERM. IT'S NOT LIKE I WAS THE ONLY ONE WHO HANDED STUFF IN ON THE LAST DAY!!!! ALTHOUGH HE'S EASY IF YOU DO HIS WORK... MAKES YOU DO EVERYTHING ONLINE THOUGH WHICH IS A HUGE PAIN. HE WON'T TAKE ANYTHING THAT'S NOT ONLINE NOW o_0
Verrrryyy easy teacher, but doesn't exactly do much. Sits @ his computer 98% of the time.
Just hand in the assignments before the term ends. Voila! You get your marks. Knows a lot about different types of drawings and he's very good with technology.
Very good teacher! taught me so much unfortunately I'm leaving his class when the term ends, wish I could stay there forever.
industrial but not economical LOL if u want a good mark..for self evaluation you may as well giv urself over 100%
can talk to him about all ur other projects and get help on them too ;)
Doesn't teach us anything, just sits at computer all day..not clear about homework.
Tells you that you had homework when you come into class. Not very clear, but it doesn't matter cos you can hand everything in at end of term. SOO easy!
He's nice... but he's quite disorganized, and he's always in front of his laptop or computer.. He's not bad though =]
policy on hw -----> hand it in before the term's report card. do it well u get full marks. he doesn't care EASIEST TEACHER EVER!!
Hahaha, I think I've had this dude every year..it's just a skip class and he doesn't mind either, he's a cool guy..haha
do nothing , teach nothing, and of course he spends time on the phone & the comp
easy stuff, doesn't teach much, sits in front of comp mostly
ok teacher but doesnt teach much, juss sits there in front of his computer
never teach us anything and he only sit there and stare at his computer
doesnt teach much.. all u need is self eval. and safety contract and u pass..
easy as lifting a pencil w/ ur hand...as long as u finish projects...
This dude looks at Extra-terrestrial things. Freaky sci-fi dude!
Horrible teacher...just leaves us there wit confusing booklet n checks his email
mr olson is cool ! really easy going, tech was always fun
Self eval is highly weighted (good for mark) if student is liked
