Mr. Spanier is a truly caring and loving man who gets extremely off topic in class, and you might not end up learning anything in the curriculum, but he challenges you as a person and makes you think about your future, which honestly is better than anything you'd learn at school. He gives out easy marks, though I did wish he prepared my class more for the exam. He's retiring, so I'm glad I had the honour of being one of his final students.
The literal G, this guy would say the weirdest things in class but was so nice, when I was sick he took care of me (as in helped me out) until my mom picked me up, in class he was funny and taught me so much. I honestly have to say he was the best high school teacher ever.
He sings better then Mr.hay
His teaching methods are extremely weird. But surprisingly you learn stuff in class and his question du jour surprisingly improves your writing skills
best teacher ever, esp for grade 12.
French used to be a more exciting class. Now I kind of regret taking it...
I've had Mr Spanier for about 3 years for french, and i can honestly say he is amazing:) sometimes he gets off topic but when he does it's still interesting because he does something that most other teachers dont, and that's talking about life lessons and how to make it through life. Thank you Mr Spanier for being able to relate to us :) maybe next year your class will be ready for PARTIR! =D
Mr. Spanier is BOSS.
Honeslty, best teacher ever. Can't stress it enough. Most inspiring teacher I've ever had. Highly encouraging taking his class.
VERY inspiring. He is the reason I am taking French all through high school. He teaches important life lessons and due to his not so strict teaching style, students feel comfortable in their learning
Mr. Spanier is the most relaxed teacher I have ever had. He is good in all respects, only some students would appreciate if he stayed on topic more often in class.
A very kind, inspirational teacher. Although he can be a little unclear and irresponsible at times, you leave the class having learned something, whether it is French related or not.
The most amazing and inspirational teacher I've ever had. Not only does he provide us with the most helpful life lessons and advice, he makes everyone love French and makes learning so much more fun.
omg i love mr.spanier! he's so kind :) he inspires me so much.
Most likely the most inspiring teacher in the whole school
i agree. amazing inspirational speeches! super nice and helpful!
love him. saw him at a party once. he understands everyone, gives great advice and when hes with that guitar of his... you'll just have to see for yourself. helpfulness= 5
he's great at inspirational talks LOL. he's an okay french teacher. super nice and easy going.
Cool teacher, likes to tell a lot of "life" stories. I learned -some- new stuff, and got a pretty high mark. There were some slackers in the class and I think he should've been harder on deadlines =S
He should stop teaching french and start teaching careers. I leanred nothing about french in his gade 11 class.. its because of him i didnt take grade 12 french. Hes an awesome councellor too.
just sits around in improv club but is a really nice guy
YEA MR SPANIER...the best teacher ever..he makes class so easy and fun..and it is impossible to get a bad mark in his class..
He gets distracted too easily, cares more about our lives than about learning. He discusses too much, didn't teach me a THING in English, and can't handle the class. However, he's nice and you can talk to him, and he listens to what you're saying. Helps you pass exam by giving you what's on there. If you're looking for a cake-class, you'll enjoy it. If you're looking to learn something, TRANSFER!!
he is the best teacher ever. his discussions are so inspiring. and as for french, he teaches it in a more practical way that you'll understand. and sooo funny. amazing teacher all around.
SICKEST TEACHER I HAVE EVER HAD... I'm making sure i have him 4 years in a row.
GREAT guy! his stories are hilarious..still remember alll his songs...french clss was awesome with him =P even though he didnt teach a lot of french...u learn more about life from him
He's a GREAT person in real life, knows a lot about reality... gives us a lot of life lessons, telling us everyday that we have to shape up for the future, and that even though we're in French class, we should still do well in other subjects too. BUT his French teaching isn't the same...
MR. SPANIER IS AMAZING. You learn stuff in his class that you'll actually remember. He evens out work and fun so you'll even have fun while learning FRENCH. Only reason I took gr 11 french is because hes teaching!
best teacher ever, listens to you, best french class ever i took it in grade 10 because of him, so safe and down to earth
From a former student (now teacher) in the Heart Lake days. Thanks so much for being one of my most memorable teachers. I hope 'Dominique' is still ringing through the halls. Still showing the movie 'Manon'? Remember everyone, "not everything that counts can be counted".
the best and the koolest teacher unforgettable classes teaches u bout important stuuf in life
coolest teacher ever had!!!.....anyone who has mr spanier is sooooo lucky!!!!
OMG I LOVE THIS GUY!! HE WAS ONE OF THA BEST TEAHCERS EVER... WHOLY..i learnt soo much in french and i actually liked going to class:O i had a really bad gr8 teacher(wheeler) so i really needed a teacher as good as him...PROPS :P
Life is what you make of it... and thats the deal with this class. If you choose to get involved in learning, Mr. Spanier WILL listen and will teach you what you want to learn. He's not the type to just sit back and pile on work. It's called interactive learning-and it's awesome :D
he LISTENS, he actually LISTENS TO YOU most teacher ignore you or give you a vague answer, he is on of best and nicest teachers in the school i learn a lot in his class
The absolute best teacher you will ever have. He gives you the best advice and is always there to listen. He is the only teacher that actually listens to the students needs. He is also very hilarious. The best dude, THE BEST!!!!
awsome got to watch cool movies, is really funny and fun and i learned stuff
I LEARNED SO MUCH.... about everything else EXCEPT french :) ohh and "Oh bruit de la pluie..." etc...
easiest mark i got...hes real nice and very cool but talks about everything besides french! hes a real slacker though...
will talk about nething and everything besides french in his class...ur screwed for the exam though
cool teacher, but u dont really do any work in his class...spends time talkin bout random stuff..very funny..gives out candy, sings + plays guitar too o.O!!
Gets side traacked so easily, and yet still teaches well. Easiest marker and teacher i've ever had yet i didn't get busted next year in english.
TALKS SO MUCH LOl THAS GOOD CUZ U DUN DO NE WORK. He sings better then Mr.hay
BEST TEACHER EVER! He's so cool and makes the class fun
Best teacher~!~ Not only funny, & fun, but you learn a lot of stuff,... Oh n his sons gonna be a tough kid .. wink*
He gave me the idea of a rubber cheque to beat the administration. There was about 10 out of 100 classes spent*only*talking about Iraq. Always fun to diss Bush.
I dont agree with a single person here... i think he is one of the best teachers makes learning easy fun and enjoyable... The best teacher ever!
if you don't wanna work and just talk about stuff then a great teacher, but you won't learn any of the course material
