Mr.hansen is a great teacher and he is very enthusiastic. Much unlike different teachers, he will apologize if he is wrong or does something wrong. He can be strict and lays down the law about somethings but he also a great teacher. He has tons of wisdom and takes an interest in students and is very kind.
Wastes time talking about things that dont matter and then gets mad when you dont make eye contact. It's impossible to tell what will make him mad and what wont since it is impossible to tell his mood. He would also rather make fun of students instead of helping them. He also refuses to accept that he is wrong even when the entire class is against him and is way too proud to listen to reason. He has very little if any regard for student's personal lives when scheduling things.
Doesn't teach, just says play and hope you can play it because if not you'll be put on the spot in front of the class. Many dropped out because of the teacher and it's quite disappointing.
he is the sole reason me and many others quit band. numbers dont lie - about 75% of the original gr8 class quit band cause of him.
Jeff Hansen is a teacher unlike any other. I have never witnessed another human possess his unique combination of spiteful condescension and racial intolerance. The majority of the kids in his class are afraid of his temperamental outbursts and random beratings.
The most bipolar peraon ive met. He loves to single out students and harass them. Gets angry beacuse his students are "rude"
The reason I quit band. Probably is bipolar as one day he will be nice, and other days he loses his temper for you lending a pencil to someone sitting beside you. I kid you not, he actually yelled at someone for doing that. Very rude and always goes off topic, talking about random stuff for sometimes 30 min. Will always pick on certain people in class and picks favorites. He thinks he can never be wrong and always tries to find faults with you. Has a huge ego too, overall awful teacher.
By far one of the most hated human beings I have come to contact with over the years. It's hard to imagine how he hasn't gotten caught yet for the amount of time he's wasted for an average student, and then his temperamental bipolar attitude, which is hard enough to deal with.
He's a really good teacher but he's extremely strict and mean to everybody if it's near the end year concert or some other festival. I personally think hes "cool" and he tells jookes that are soo lame they're actually funny.
Does not encourage students to participate/learn in band. Only interested in those who take extra curricular courses.
terrible teacher, shouldnt be allowed to teach. **** in class sometimes it seems. hes very unappropriate to student calling them cute. Makes fun of students for no reason, picks on kids.
i think mr hansen is a pretty cool guy. he plays music and doesn't afraid of anything
Class is always a breeze to participate in... if you lack a heart and are mentally incapable of registering emotional abuse. Leaves one on the verge of a mental explosion.
Bursts of emotional (?) spasms through means of contorted, ambiguous and harsh criticisms that deteriorate a student's self esteem and will to participate with enthusiasm.
Verbally attacks individuals over things that any other teacher would dismiss easily. Is often wrong about accusations and HATES explanations . Refuses to discuss issues and doesn't solve them
Helpful at the cost of a rant which often degrades the student in front of class. discusses an inappropriate amount of content which often has little or nothing to do with band.
Unnecessary amount of anger or negative tension coming from him and getting directed at students. Though easy as far as percents, emotionally the most difficult class to go through because of him
One of the things he doesn't teach is MUSIC; Should've taken more science classes in high school rather than this, but hey, it was kind of fun to prance around dressed like a Canadian flag.
I think he's better than his wife. He actually lets us go on trips (which are pretty fun). He does seem a little mean to other fellow band members and makes some rude comments/jokes.
He picks favourites, and choosess which to dislike. Approaching him is scary, if you are not one of his "pets". Acts if the band is a family, only in class, but individually, he acts rather mean.
funny guy,, hard playin' tests @ times,, jokes ALOT,, teases u 4 no reason sumtimes,, favours certain students,, but his band classes r amazing memories wen u think bak (esp whistler & chehalis!)
The best teacher I've ever had. Had him for five years, and I can tell you, he really cares about his students. The amazing experiences my friends and I had in band with him will last a lifetime.
little bit scary to approach but lots of fun and helpful once you get to know him.
amazing teacher. fun to be with and lots to learn from. he can get pretty strict around festival time or concert time. but it helps us to be ready for our performance and sets our mood.
If his mark was based on Jazz Band alone, it would be a lot higher! Concert band is one of the most stressful courses I've ever taken! Those playing tests... *shudders*
He loses focus sometimes..not adventure time. but overall nice and funny. Teases you for no reason. would get fired for half the things he says... nobody tell
mr h rocked. i was his and mrs h's TA. he teaches discipline and respect not only reading music but a passion for it.
definetely doesnt deserve what some of you have put here. he really cares about what he does and picks great music (with student input). definetely my favorite class ever.
My favourite teacher, sometimes can be pretty harsh on kids for no reason, but he really puts all his effort into the band program and deserves a bit more respect than a lot of the students give him.
He's my favourite teacher but he loves to make fun of me
great teacher- the kind who has a lasting impact. He was my teacher 14 years ago. I still play music and he is the greatest music teacher I ever had.
I dislike the way he tells the whole class who's the best player. Make you feel sad. =P He likes to make fun of kids (especially if he knows them outside if schoo;l)
Plays favorites especially with kids that he knows outside of school...
always and always will be my favourite teacher. very funny.
Hes a cool teacher but he can be a bit mean/"over" sometimes...
Tough exterior, but a nice guy on the inside - honest too.
My favourite teacher. True, he can be mean to kids, but I think he's fair. he is a great teacher, we wouldn't be the band we are today without him
He's sort of mean like when he puts me on the spot and starts making fun of me. He also likes my gr.10 brother and he expects me to be as good as him. Kool thou
Jokes are horrible.He needs his way because its "HIS BAND". Bad temper, treats everyone like little kids. Picks favourites still puts them down. Bad teacher.
Very easy if your on his good side. I enjoy making fun of him literally every class and still get A's. Who could I be? hhhmmmmm
there is alwasy someone in his class that gets picked on by him and those people end up quitting i dont think he is a fair teacher his moods are way up and down
Mr. Hansen is always getting angry at someone for no apparent reason. He can snap at any minute and is known to make kids cry. He tends to put kids on the spo
He's nice and funny, but he can also be mean, especially when he unfairly puts you on the spot. Who cares if you don't have a joke in class? IT'S BAND!!!
feed him cookies and watch lots of star trek epissodes and you'll get on his good side!
i love mr.hansen he's really cool, but i hate it when he puts you on the spot and makes fun of you!!
Just go on the trips and watch Star Trek and it's an easy A.
