Mr.A teaches the important things in life. If you like to learn in an environment where you are taught by someone who is your friend, then this is the class for you! He sets a free and equal vibe where you can be yourself and do anything you need to improve yourself. He is the teacher that teaches you about you! As far as work goes, it's easy, simple and straight forwards. He is one of the most smooth, fun and interesting teachers (and people) that I know and should have him as a teacher/friend.
I am learning more in his class than in the rest of my classes put together. He teaches life lessons more than English. I have a lot of respect for him and he really knows his stuff. He is wise, and in the long run will help you more by teaching you about real life.
I've never had mr.Addie as a teacher, but my sister has and she really liked him. I hope to be able to have him as an English teacher in the future!:) seems likes a very nice guy. to all the hating comments, haters gonna hate, and nobody is perfect. Also, don't blame your whole future on one English teacher😂 YOU ROCK MR.ADDIE!
c) I like gym.
He is a great person but not a good teacher. He is very knowledgeable, but doesn't actually teach you much of the curriculum. He will get sidetracked and go on about his life lessons or some weird story. Often times, it will take several weeks to complete assignments that should take about a quarter of the time, just because of how wrapped up in his lectures he gives. Outside of class, however, I respect him tremendously as a person. I think he would be better suited as a college professor.
Reading some of these negative comments below sicken me. If you think that getting a high grade so that you can get into a "college" instead of Cartier is better than learning about life, your life is sad and isn't going anywhere notable. I had him 4 years ago and got straight A's, smoked and still do smoke a lot of pot, & I'm now 21, living out west in the beautiful Canadian Rockies, working my dream job teaching circus aerials and trampoline and OWN my own place. Appreciate his presence & life
Since he is on record of saying that he reads these... Let preface by saying this. At times he can be the most frustrating teacher, he will answer questions with a question he gives a big F-U to the ministry of education with his course syllabus and he digs Shakespeare to the dismay of his students. All that being said, I never appreciated him until I graduated. He gets that thegoal of High School should be to give you a basic grasp of the world, and he will teach you more than you can imagine.
hey addie we know you read these. have fun. also you try to get in everyone's business. relax buddy
His stories can be cool, but he is self absorbed and needs to teach his class. Every once in a while its fun to have a class where you talk about life and deeper stuff, but its so frustrating to never get any work done. He will set a goal at the beginning of class and get so side tracked that you never reach that goal by the end of class, maybe not even by the end of the week and after a while it gets frustrating and annoying
A great teacher who's knowledge is so vast it may surprise you. Sure, he may tell many stories but in the end he does what ever it takes to get a student ready for their future. Don't expect his class to be a walk in the park though, if you want to pass you have to work for it.
Energetic for sure. You're never really sure how he's going to react to something you do/say. Which is good or bad I guess. His class makes you think and there's very little homework. Exams are quite tough.
He has been a teacher for all my siblings. He is a very good teacher and has a great energy.
A teacher that made me realize there's more to the story than just the words. That how you phrase the sentence could change its meaning. Gave me a whole new view on life. Can get off topic, but eventually bounces back. Love the teacher. A great guy..
Cool guy, and will take the time to build a relationship with his students. He does however let his personal beliefs get in the way of his lessons and and spends too much time on issues that may make students feel uncomfortable. He will do a good job getting you ready for the final exam
This guy is the greatest teacher in the school. I am so tired of all those classes where all you do is take notes and feel detached. Everyone is included in his class and there is no shame in sharing your opinion. The only person I met who also liked a-ha. The guy knows his music. Oh yeah the room is full of life unlike the other ugly grey block classes. Where else can you play guitar in class? Finally a class where you don't have a robotic by the book teacher.
very good teacher, enjoyed his class however i felt as if it was less about his class and more about him selling his musical abilities at times
AMAZING TEACHER! Yes, his tests are challenging, but if you study, you'll do fine. He is an incredible teacher that doesn't only teach English, he teaches life... He is an individual who is honest and doesn't put himself up on a pedestal because he teaches. He genuinely cares about his students and is someone you can talk to about anything!
Very interesting on what he says about life, but if you are a person who cares about getting good grades to go to college and university instead of ending up in Cartier, then don't take him.
Everybody should be fortunate enough to have a teacher like Mr.Addie. He actually talks about things that really matter and speaks his mind. Though not everybody always agrees, it's one of the reasons why the class atmosphere is so dynamic. He truly cares about his students and those who only care about marks shouldn't be in his class. His class is a breath of fresh air and a dose of life, not only about the curriculum and final exams. If you're lucky enough to have him, appreciate him.
Great teacher, but sometimes to hard, he reallly cares about his students and u feel like i can rely on him for anything,
Some think he is a fantastic teacher; others think he's arrogant. Overall, there is no other class as unique as Addie's- a great experience everytime. Either you really really like him, or you really really don't.
Mr. Addie has to be my favorite teacher ever. He has helped me deal with problems I've had. And he has inspired me to become a teacher. Thank you, Mr. Addie. You're amazing. -Spencer
Mr. Addie is one of the coolest people I've ever met. He does an awesome job at teaching the Actor's Studio program and knowing he will be there for me to talk to is better than any guidance counselor who can't even share their opinion. Whether you've ever been taught by him or not, I'd recommend going to him if you have a problem. His daughter is adorable! He will definitely be one of the five people I meet in heaven. Also, if you think he's a hard marker, it's because you don't work enough
He's actually a great teacher! He really cares about his students which is not something all teachers do.
he's a great guy but he marks way too hard. you're lucky if you get a 70 in his class. tests on novels are always low. if you're looking for high marks, then make sure that you don't have him
Mr. Addie is amazing and he gave me so much help. I had problems but i went to him and he helped me automatically
Mr. Addie is an amazing teacher. He truly takes an interest in his students and cares about them very much.
he's self-absorbed and fake. He only talks about himself and basically wants to get into the personal lives of all his students.
Mr Addie is a great teacher, I have him for english and he is very fun and funny but the only thing I dont like is that some of his assignements are tough otherwise hes very helpful and nice! :)
great english teacher, and very nice to look at ;)
If you are lucky enough to get him as a teacher be thankful. he teaches you about urself and helps guide ur future. he can be a hard marker at times but if u do what ur told u'll excel.DO UR JOURNALS
If you did not like Mr.Addie it's because you don't like yourself. He teaches to look at yourself in new ways and to apply that to life. Apply yourself and it's a great return! English and Journalism
Defos the best teacher I had at Rennie. Got him for Grade 11 Journalism, and learned more than in any other class, both about journalism and life in general.
He's very passionate about what he teaches,is great to talk to and worth getting to know.
I had him in grade 11 for journalism and he's been the best teacher I've had in all my five years of high school! He really cares about you and not just marks! He's a great teacher!
He's an amazing teacher, by far. I couldn't have asked for anyone better throughout my last year or High School.
He is good at given life lessons, however teaches little about the actual language of english. Often contradicts himself and does not realize it. His stories are inspirational, and i am pretty sure t
Best English teacher I have ever had!! This is his first year teaching a mixed class of grade 9, 10 and 11's. He's great at it. He's also great at breaking clocks. His stories are great and so is he!
deffinetly my favorite teacher ever,,,has an amazing sense of humour and makes class conversation simply awesome...go big or go home!
He's an amazing teacher..probably one of the wisest people I've ever met! His stories are really inspiring and it shows that he cares.
really fun teacher but hes an extremely hard marker and could sometimes be two faced. but other than that hes a really cool guy and if you get him your guranteed a fun year. just be prepared to work
Amazing teacher, talks about his personal life and experiences so you get to know him better. He really cares about you as a person and helps you no matter what. I learnt so much this year in english!
i love his class conversations... hes a bit controversial, but hes super interesting and has the best opinions. :) LOVE YA
amazing. inspirational. never more serious than when he is joking. he is somehting else.
Addie has a lot of flaws which he showed me time and time again. And he knows it too, and tries to better himself. In the end, I found that his good qualities overrule the bad. He is a great person.
Hard teacher, hard marker, you are required to study hard and think a lot. he is super funny and his classes are amazing anyone who passes his class can pass any cegep class
Ppl say hes into your lives, tell him to stop, he respects individual ppl enough to stop. Hes a great person, story teller, an ok teacher but sometimes you need those stories to clear ur mind to learn
Amazing teacher, his stories are interresting and makes journalism fun! if you have him you'll defintely hear about Victor Davis!GO BIG OR GO HOME! he does tend to get too much into students lives:(
Quite possibly the best teacher I've ever had. it goes far beyond English...he is a teacher of LIFE
Addie is the person who taught me how to take my anger and anxiety out on paper not myself. he's one of the best teachers ive ever had. and his stories were inspiring i never left his class unhappy :)
There are English teachers, and then there's Mr. Addie. This man is probably one of the most decent human beings I've ever come accross. Caring about your life begins with Huntley Addie.
Super nice person but didn't like him as a teacher. Very intelligent but tries to hard to involve himself in things that are none of his business. Also, very hard marker.
Addie is annoying,winy,judgemental,self absorbed with popularity and looks.Claims that he's wants 2 help his students but all he wants is self-glory. He lacks patient,heart and compassion. He's fake.
He's a good teacher. Yes, he doesn't teach much actual english and such but he does teach real life lessons which will be useful later in life. Stories may be repetitive, but he's cool and helpful
addie is the best english teacher eva . hes helpful hes enthousiastic, not to mention fun. his life stories arent quite nessacary, however they are freaking hilarious. count urself lucky if u have him
Awesome teacher, tries to invovle himself into the students life a little too much, but hes just trying to help.
Keep at it, Addie
worst teacher i ever had, thinks he's going to save everyone, some of his stories are from movies. Tries to know his students to personally, needs to back off
He's so incredibly funny! Great interesting guy. Is cool and level-headed and takes to his students as if we're equals. Gives out cool assignment. Gives a lot of work though.
Mr addie is such a nice person...hes soo helpful ...i hope i have him in grade 10 and 11... the only teacher who has interessting random stories
I've never had him but hesa great teacher Hope you stay mr Addie
very cool teacher wish i had him sometimes goes off talking about junk for no reason
He is the best mentor u could have and is very involved in student council!u rock my addie!
