He is great i really enjoyed his writer's craft course. He may seem boring and annoying to some people but I really liked him as a person. Put in some effort and some creativity and you will get a good mark. He is also very understand for deadlines.

Mr. Bowering is one of those teachers that seem hard and cold on the outside, but really is warm and passionate about teaching. He loves what he does (especially poetry) and once you impress him, you'll always get great marks. Don't be lazy, work hard, and be dilligent! Thanks Mr. Bowering, for making grade 12 english so spectacular and worth fast tracking.

Bowering is a great actor, he is very passionate about his work and reads beautifully with great emotion. However he has one of those 'prideful' attitudes that can eat at you on a bad day, besides that he is a great teacher

I found that if you had a question, he would do everything he could to answer it to the best extent. I did poorly on the first few assignments, but boosted my mark over 10% by asking questions, and figuring out what he was looking for. Excellent teacher, if you're a good student.

Some people teach English like a science. Others teach it like an art. To me, it's an art. So naturally, I did not enjoy Mr. Bowering and his formulatic classes.

I personally do not enjoy english class, but Mr.Bowering made it very interesting. He is an amazing teacher. Even though he is a REALLY hard marker, he makes you strive to do better. Surprisingly my essays actually improved when I compared the ones at the beginning of the semester to the ones near the end.

sooo unbeleivably awesome. to be completely honest i think that he is a fair marker, and if you pull something out at the last second, he knows and he's not gonna give you that good of a mark. But i think that he makes everything really interesting and he is just soo much fun! LOOOOVE HIM!

I had Mr.Bowering when i was in grade 9 and im now in grade 11. he's an incredible teacher and taught me SO much. This guy clearly knows what he is talking about, and appears to be very passionate about the english language. I wish i had him again, and to the people who do, take advantage of it, because its not often that you get an english teacher like him. And Mr.Bowering, your wife is a very lucky lady :).

I think he is incredibly intelligent. I have him right now and I can't believe how much I've already learned. But I must say, I don't find him that hard of a marker... I'm pretty happy with the way he marks. (Maybe I'm just doing something right)

Mr. Bowering is definitely a cool teacher; however, he is an unbelievably HARD marker. English is quite hard because all the assignments are confusing. I like how he picks fun with little witty puns, and is considerate. But do you realize he eavesdrop on everyone's convo? He can determine who you are, and what you are talking about when you're not looking.

Very good teacher, taught me alot about poetry and definatly knows what he's talking about, but he needs to learn that we're not going to submit Shakespeare on our first submission. Maybe ease up a little more on the difficulty and then slowly work up. Writers Craft was hard, but worth it! Thanks for the awesome experience!

Needs to sincerely try to improve his teaching methods. First step is to be on time for class. Secondly, needs to learn to mark. Marking means more than circlin
