MR. BURKE IS CERTAINLY THE BEST TEACHER OUT THERE NOT JUST FOR MATH. He is so dedicated and cares a lot about his students succeeding! He must really enjoy his job because he's so darn great at it. He will make sure you understand what you're doing and he puts so much effort in to teaching AH HE IS THE GREATEST. Great at teaching also a hilarious and easygoing dude. And it's true, he brings in treats for the whole class on Fridays and shares a well structured joke every class or so!

The best teacher you will ever have. He is realistic and prepares you effectively. He makes sure you practice a lot which I find is the best way in math and the quizzes are often but tell you where your at w/ your grades. He cares about his students and devotes a lot of time for them. He is a great role model, bonus- FOOD EVERY FRIDAY AND JOKES EVERYDAY WHICH ARE HILARIOUS! He helps you in more than just math and will pass up a late once in a while. Best teacher I've ever had.

He is a very caring teacher, he is also a realist. He tells you how it is and what you need to do in his class to achieve. He is always available to help others, whether it's before or after school and he often present in the math help room.

Mr Burke is a fantastic teacher - expects hard work and if you meet his expectations you will find yourself very successful. Gives quizzes every few days which are challenging at times, application questions on tests are killer, but by the time you get to the exam it's a absolute breeze since he prepares you so well. Most hilarious sense of humour and a quick temper to go with it (tread carefully). Really cares about his students and is extremely generous with his time to give extra help.

Okay here's the deal. If you're good at math than you'll love his class (if you're not, get out of academic math). He really wants all of his students to succeed and gives a lot of chances for this to happen. He really cares about what he does and tries to incorporate humour (jokes) into his class to make it more fun. Fairly so, he does get angry when you're not listening so as long as you're respectful he'll like you

Mr. Burke is one of the best teachers I have ever had and definitely the best math teacher ever. He brings in treats on Friday, tells jokes and yet is also strict enough to keep the class on task. He is very good at explaining concepts and makes math fun!

He is very dedicated. He goes through the curriculum at a decent pace - slow enough that you understand it but fast enough that we don't learn too much in the last minute. He is one of the most helpful teachers I have ever met - he will find time to answer your questions at 7:15 am before rehearsals or at lunch. He also takes up the homework in class, which is really nice. However, his tests are challenging and he is sometimes a little unclear about concepts - but ask him to clarify them and he will. I also

Great teacher! He's strict but is very clear and helpful. If you're a slacker or don't like homework, don't take the class. But it's worth trying, if he sees you struggling, he'd be more than happy to lend his time to help you catch up and get the material.
