Mr. Groen was an AMAZING teacher! I had so much fun in his grade 9 Canadian Geography class (which is a subject that I didn't really like before this year), and I'm considering doing his grade 12 world issues course (even though I don't know if I'll like it) just to have him again. He also emphasized learning over marks, and that helped to de-stress me significantly. Overall, he was a great teacher and you're super lucky if you get him!!

Mr. Groen is the worst teacher at O.T. He makes fun of every question you ask, and does not explain any project. I would not recommend asking a question because you will just feel bad about yourself. He also will not help you on any projects he gives you. Good luck!

Favourite teacher ever. Not a big fan of geo but i'll take it in gr.11 and 12 just to have him teach me again. he was an interesting funny guy and he only picked on and didn't like loud obnoxious students. pay attention in his class.

I had Groen for Canadian Geo, to him everything is a competition. His ways of teaching are horrible and rushed. He is a tough marker and always compares. To him nothing is perfect, no such thing as a good question, or a good mark. He is not reasonable nor understandable.He really needs to work on encouraging kids instead of scaring them when ever they step foot in his class so they are tempted to not ask questions. He gossips, and never completely informs about tasks. He has boring classes.

I really dislike this odd little troll. He makes me feel inferior, useless and slow. He makes fun of his students, misuses, and abuses his classroom power, most likely due to childhood abuse. He is an overly aggresive, and impossible teacher.
