He is a wonderful man, one of my favourite teachers. Everything I've learned from him has been so interesting, and he's so nice too. I'll be sad to see him go.

He's very arrogant. He thinks that his writing is eloquent, but it is actually convoluted and ambiguous. Multiple choice questions are like reading comprehension exercises in and of themselves.

He is a decent teacher, but his expectations are completely unrealistic and unreasonable considering that the necessary material usually does not usually get covered before tests and exams.

He is a great educator, but a horrible marker. It is possible to get really high marks (95 ) in his class if you work extremely hard and make Bio your top priority. A good balance of strict and cool.

He is a hard marker, but you can learn a lot in his class if you try. He is defintely really passionate about Biology.

One of the hardest markers i've ever met, picky and reluctant to give out marks, Mr. D still stands as one of the best teachers i've had. You'll be so prepared after his class. could teach uni.

very intelligent and accomplished teacher, you can tell he knows what he's teaching inside and out. only issue is that sometimes he marks a bit too strictly for high school.

He's up and down, some days he can be funny, and the next day he'll be yelling at you. Knows what he wants and knows how to get it. Picky on the little things.

My biggest problem is his strict grading. I realise he wants us to take it seriously but an 83 won't look well on an application. otherwise, he's a great teacher and KNOWS HIS STUFF. good univ. prep

I think he's given up on the grade 12 biology classes. we spend most classes measuring our eyes instead of doing the serious stuff like before.
