Those bad comments about Mr.Vine are just trash. He is a great teacher, with a great sense of humor & explain things clearly.

I'm a student who loves studying. However, being in his class, it's impossible! He plays music sometimes when he lets us "work". Consequently, the class kind of takes this as an opportunity to get hype and they all start talking, and no one actually works. In addition to this, he lets us out very early! He doesn't like to teach, and makes it extremely obvious.

He's not that bad. Sure he gets off topic and just gives you worksheets, but I like him.

His time management skills are terrible. He is not organized and he thinks he's fine but the problem is we don't. He never warns us for any test but he talks how the government is getting rid of exams. Can you justdo your job? Get organized and put up on the board if there's a test coming up like how every other teachers do. He thinks this is all fine. Iwould rather be with another teacher even if that teacher is really mean, i would get more knowledge than this. Vine should never educate people

He is really funny but is the most lazy teacher you will ever meet! All we do is watch videos, and there not even knowledgeable. Some classes we just watch a soccer game, or he just complains about the new curriculum for the whole class. It's pretty fun having not to do anything in class, but the problem is that he gives a huge chapter test every week, when we haven't learned anything.

Mr Vine was my grade nine science teacher. He's fairly straightforward, and really likes Bill Nye and The Big Bang Theory. He taught chemistry fairly well, and he really helped us learn the stuff well. I heard that his teaching quality has went down now, but back when I had him he still taught all right and he gave us a lot of practice in all the sections of the textbook. However, he doesn't seem to be that free after school or during lunch that much.

He makes popcorn in one of those old fashioned popcorn machines during class sometimes and gives it out for $2. He's great at teaching and knows his stuff. He's also really funny.. But I've had him for 2 years in a row (gr.8 and gr.9 science) and he tells the same jokes/stories and plays the same tricks on his students every year, so when everyone's laughing I'm just sitting there pretending I haven't heard the joke before. He's super easy going but u don't wanna get him in a bad mood.

Love him. Lots of people seem to not like his teaching style, but I like it because I learn more than I have in any other science class but feel like I'm doing practically nothing. Gives lots of easy homework and participation marks. Highly Recommend

Not a good teacher. All you do is watch videos. I would change classes if I were put I were put in his class agian. If you want to actually learn anything, get a diffrerent teacher.

He doesn`t let kids mess around in his class, which is great because then you can focus all the time. He makes things very easy to follow and very fun to do. Oh, and he makes popcorn everyday at lunch for a dollar :) POP BOTTLE ROCKETS !!!!! I miss him.
