Mr. Dawson will go down as one of my favourite teachers ever. Initially, I thought of him as being a bit of a jerk. But soon I realized that I was just acting immature and lazy. Once I starting studying intensely and working through the material ( gr: 12 biology), I actually really began to enjoy studying and going to classes. I bombed my first test (30%ish), but soon my marks began to climb. I did really well on my final exam (around 80%), and was accepted to many top universities.

Mr.D is an awesome teacher; he teaches you how to teach yourself. I had a 40% on his first test, but I studied really hard for the rest of the year, and pulled off an 80% on the exam.u rock!

why all the hating on Dawson? I thought he was nuts, until the exam came, and somehow, I knew everything on it! His weird method is revolutionary.

Mr Dawson was amazing. One day you will all realize it, because its undeniable. He teaches you to teach yourself and if you have any aspirations in life you'd better learn now.Happy retirement Dawson!

As much as hes a really wierd/nice person out of class. He needs to actually teach us when we don't understand. We need notes to study not just your ramblings. The good thing is that you can get away with alot of stuff in his class.

Ask him if it's possible to create free energy from perpetual motion, he'll ramble on for the rest of the class and you won't have to do anything.

Really nice man, however could have been a bit more helpful. He is so knowledgeable, but his lack of clarity makes it hard to gain fully from him.

he prepares us for university quite well. He is interesting as he can talk about any topic. He is well read and a smart man. A bit too stingy on his food polocies. Not everyone fails his class; only those who deserve it. Keep on Rockin' Mr. D
