I absolutely loved mr valen as a teacher . He would help me all the time .even with other classes and would cheer me up whenever i was having a bad day. A brilliant teacher and super funny guy. Graduated almost 10 years ago but still remember a lot of what he taught me.

Oh Gus, he is an awesome guy but he is easily on of the hardest markers you will ever have in high school. Don't forget his unmarked non-consecuative twenties if you want a good mark ;).

He was funny but didn't help out my english skills. Just wrote a number on my assignments - no feedback and when i would ask he wouldn't say much. Marks pretty hard too and the exam was kind of unfair cause he put random grammar things we never learned about. Oh and he loves his scotch lol

mr valen is an awesome teacher. His unique style makes it easier for us to relate to him, and its weird because people you'd never expect do well in his classes. He sees the best in everyone

I'm graduated, but he is really hard, but you know you will definitely learn something. & I love his humor, intelligence & his helpfulness (even though I was always a shy student).
