Bad teacher. Goes out of topic.
Rip Mr. Shaw, enjoy your retirement! You were extremely hard, but you definitely taught me a lot about English.
incredibly knowledgeable, but has a tendency to talk all class about things only tangentially related to the course material which you may or may not find interesting. usually approachable and often gave me extra time for assignments, but he can sometimes be intimidating, especially if he doesn't think you're focusing. tests are difficult, quizzes are hard if you haven't entirely memorized a section of the play/book, marks most other things pretty harshly. his gr 12 eng was easier than his gr 10
Overall, Mr.Shaw is amazing! Putting teaching aside, he is a wonderful man who has seen so much within his lifetime. Always enjoyed hearing his stories. He is full of passion, especially towards Shakespeare! Really will miss him and I wish him best of luck in the coming future and those of you who have him... you will need to work hard towards attaining a good mark but enjoy his class and his presence because it will later be missed!
Mr.Shaw was a great teacher. He did have a large obsession with Shakespeare which took up almost 3/4th of the semester. His tests are insane but in the end they seem to work. He's pretty strict in class about no-hat and no-phone rules. He probably knows more than any book I've read and helps make certain historic events easier to understand. You'll really enjoy him if your fine with reading a lot and doing brutal tests. You can also get very occupied by listening to his godly voice.
All around badass. His tests are brutal, he will rip apart your essays, but he is still one of the best teachers at heart lake. He can be intimidating, but he is actually pretty nice and will give you extensions (sometimes!) if you just ask. Shaw will be one of my most memorable and influential teachers of heart lake. I had him for three years in a row, he really motivated me and helped me improve my reading and writing skills.
Mr.Shaw was definitly the best teacher i ever had! He is such an amazing person, and his passion for literature, even makes you love it! I had mr.shaw for both grade nine and twelve english and i was
gives too much homework... too many tests... too many assignments... but he is a nice teacher... sometimes quite lenient :) O yea... and he has the voice of God... :P
He's a great teacher, but his tests are freaking brutal.
He has been my best teacher of all time in high school!!!!
I think he is one of the best teachers I have ever had. Had him in grade 9 then again in Grade 12 which I was extemely excited about because I didn't really appreciate his knowledge in grade nine. He really made me love english. He will always stick out in my memory for the rest of my life he is a very nice man and I really and truly pray for the best in his future.
He's a cool teacher...sooo much general knowledge...wooh...i really thought he should be a prof...what is he doin in high school...i waz always scared of him even thou he was always nice to me :)
the hardest english teacher ive ever had, but also the best. He should be a professor not a high school teacher. He is SO passionate about Shakespeare. He even got me into it.
was an easy marker, gave lots of extensions. jus watch out for twelfth night tests!! hes fun and a nice teacher
He is a big man and the word's he say's is impactful. This post, would drive him mad.
makes sure that he feels more important and better than everyone he meets...all around brutal
