Peters was one of the best social teachers I have ever had. It made an amazing effort in making sure every single student felt valued and knew exactly what was needed to know

Mr. Peters is the best teacher I've had at FX, he knows the material, and cares about his students. In the beginning he might seem intimidating, but its just part of his sarcastic humor (thats just how he is lol). If he accidentally hurts your feelings just tell him! He'll feel bad because doesn't mean to do so (just sass him in class and he'll no longer pick on you lol). He prepares his students for exams/diplomas, just show up, listen, do your work and you will ACE social studies.

Great teacher very knowledgeable adn always available to help, puts a lot of effort into making sure his students succeed. Likes to be competitive in his gym classes with his students regardless of his lacking athletic ability. Will tell you he can dunk.. don't believe him, instead ask him about what happened at the 2015 bikeathon

I'm only in grade 10 and had few experiences with him but from what I've seen he seems like an awesome guy and genuine. Probably a good social teacher as well.

Peters is the best social teacher FX has to offer. He is a funny, caring and serious teacher, you have to put in the work he asks in his class to do well. He makes the content as interesting as possible with stories, examples and accents to match the topic. He may come off mean at first but its just his sarcasm, he would be devastated if he knew he hurt anyones feelings. Overall a fantastic teacher who cares about his students, I would recommend!

He is a smart teacher, no doubt he cares about his students probably too much ...I personally didn't like him as a social teacher, but I cannot say that I didn't learn from him, because I actually did a lot. I really want to be mean to him because I used to love social and he made me hate it, but I have no right because, he is smart, cares about his students, he is passionate and a great person. He is a good teacher. A very tough one but a good one. But I would never go back to his class LoL

Mr Peters is, without a doubt, the most generous teacher - both with his time and with his view of each student's potential - that I have ever come across. Anyone who felt that he didn't provide them with the most opportunities possible to learn and succeed must have made absolutely no effort whatsoever - with Fergal, if you dip even one toe into the pool he'll give all of himself to make sure you get completely dunked.

Lets be honest the kids who say he's not helpful, you clearly didn't care enough to ask him. Hes one of the most helpful teachers I've ever met and an all around amazing guy. He never meant to hurt anyone's feelings and if he did, you couldve told him. I'm sure he'd be just as hurt as you. If only all teachers were like Ferg.

Peters was by far, the most helpful teacher I've ever had. He puts so much effort and detail, to teach the kids, and it really helped me out a lot. Doesn't deserve negative feedback, cause he really does way more than what a regular teacher would. THANKS FERGAL, YOU DA BEST!

he is like the coolest person ever!!!!! i have never had a teacher like him. he cares so much for his students that it blows me away everyday that i enter his class. he does whatever he can to make sure the succeed not only in his class or high school but in life also. i know that i will never have a teacher like him because no teacher will ever put the amount of time, hard work, and definitly funny jokes that he puts into his students. He is gods gift to canada from ireland.

Just like an earlier review suggests, the guy is more like a student than a teacher. He's immature and really doesn't know his stuff. Honestly, who hired this guy?

One of those guys that became a high school teacher because he loved high school, not because he loved teaching. With predictable results.

ok teacher, very insensitive to students. Found his ridiculing of students to be a little harsh sometimes, especially when they don't deserve it.
