One of the nicest teachers out there. He's so encouraging and doesn't judge you at all if you don't do well in his class. He's so knowledgeable and insightful and creates a very safe and relaxed atmosphere in class. :)

In a sentence, Mr. Gerner's great at giving lectures and he loves teaching. He cares a lot about his students' success. That said, he limits creativity (as others have said) and grades very strictly according to the rubric. That might not be his fault, maybe it's something he's instructed to do by IB. My one advice to you if you have him as a teacher would be to follow the rubric and his instructions if you want a good mark.

Mr. Gerner was my TOK teacher 9 years ago and he taught me something which I almost can't even explain. I realized recently I have cyclothymia which is a lesser version of bipolar. I want to thank him for coming into school to teach us that semester when he didn't have to. To this day when I struggle with work, school, relationships, I remember something I learned from that class that gives me hope. I'm not sure what it is...I think it may be something like, a passion deeper than mood cycles.

Best teacher I've ever had. Extremely
passionate about his field, classes were enjoyable and funny. Made me like English after years of hating it. Ended up having him as my extended essay mentor for English. 11/10 would recommend.

Misleading with advice and feedback. Limits creativity because of expectations are too specific

Knowledgeable and easygoing teacher.
That said, he is a subjective marker. If you are not a "favourited" student, prepare to watch your grades fall.
