His love for rugby overpowers his love for teaching lol. He will love anyone who plays rugby. Pretty strict and sometimes scary but he's usually a smiley guy who jokes around. He tries to engage the class in his teaching but most of the students end up spacing out because it's just so boring.
Most knowledgeable, engaging and funny teacher I have ever had. He might look scary, but he is super nice. I would take any course he teaches. He is able to ignite the interest or even passion for Social Studies in any student. Love his sooo much. The more you talk to him the more you will love him. You go Monsieur!
I love Mr Clemente. I don't understand why so many people feel so negatively about this excellent, knowledgeable, trustworthy, and overall amazing teacher. He's really helpful, and holds lots of interesting class discussions. He's funny too, and jokes a little without it being disruptive to our learning. I always look forward to social studies now, all because of him! Mr Clemente, if you're reading this, YOU'RE AWESOME :) Don't listen to the others!
He's pretty cool, and rather chill if he likes you, the issue is that he goes a bit too slow, and this is most aparant in SS 11 wheres there's a provinces
I had him last year in grade 9. We did not do much and all he did was give us a video to watch, take notes and repeat. He is very easy though and doesn't lower your mark that much even if you don't do well in a test. He sometimes can be boring, but knows when to make random jokes. Though at the end, I had to watch a documentary on Walmart and it was irrelevant to the course.
A slacker teacher, which makes him a very fun teacher. However, he takes forever to mark projects and quizzes. He lowers marks for no apparent reason.
mr clemente is a funny, nice and helpful teacher. he makes lots of jokes that make his class enjoyable and fun. i always look forward to socials because of him. good job, mr c!!!
He's ish nice, he likes to joke around which is great but when it comes to projects he just expects everyone to be done in 2 classes which is stupid... and he's just so lazy and slow at teaching. Always lowering my marks even though I did nothing wrong
His class is very easy and his tests are basically based on the textbook and the notes he gives in class. He also did after school review sessions to help us prepare the Social 11 Provincial Exam! very nice teacher!
teaches extremely slow for somehow..... he can teaches really well but the thing is he doesn't actually teaches often...
I had him in grade 8 and again this year... He is super easy and has favourites....If he likes you can get really good marks....I was and still am his favourite with 99%
absent, too many movies, lack of teaching... only good if you wish to discuss rugby could not relate to his teaching methods
Had him as a summer school teacher, and he was really awesome. Maybe it's a different experience with him in the summer, but he taught us everything that was important and nothing useless (for the provincial). He's super cool, great accents and takes the time to draw diagrams on the board, but he takes off marks for spelling so that kind of sucked.
He was my sciences humaines teacher in the 9th and 11th grades. The text book for these courses is pretty difficult to figure out on your own at times. It would have helped if he took a more hands-on approach to teaching and didn't show so many movies.
Why all the bad reviews? i like Mr.Clemnte. he's a very intelligent teacher who has a passion for teaching. :)
He's kinda lazy and doesn't teach you all the curriculum.. he's nice a lot of the time, but when he gets mad.. he'll snap kinda suddenly without a reason to back it up.. ): on the bright side, he's really easy (:
BEST TEACHER! LOVE HIS NOTES AND HIS CLASSES ARE THE EASIEST TO PASS. IF ANY OF U DIDN'T PASS.. THEN THERES SOMETHING WRONG. xD
When I was in his class, I enjoyed it a lot. he taught well, and gave out fun assignments/projects at times. There wasn't a lot of time to do the assignments, but I learned a lot.
I like him. Hes a little rude and lazy but hes really funny and good with teens.
he talks all class favours rugby players but he tries his best
Decent guy, can be a little to strict sometimes, but class is easy if you do your work
He's not bad, I don't think we get enough time on the projects though.
Ugh, he had a huge grudge against our class and gave so little time for huge projects. Unclear with requirements, unfair, biased, inconsistent, and I really didn't learn much from being in his class.
Okay, yeah. I don't think I learned much from his class. He's a pretty easy marker, but he gives little time for assignments and projects.
I didn't learn anything in his class. In younger grades it was cool to just watch movies and slack, but provincial year was stressful. And the projects are so pointless. I liked my mark though.
Meh, not much to say. He's okay I guess, just seems to expect us to know everything right after he gives a long explanation on the topic.
I had him in 1995-1996 and I didn't think he was that bad. I enjoyed history though, so maybe I'm biased.
This man sits on his butt all day and has no clue how to teach. I passed his class having not learned a single thing all year. We watch movies and read from textbooks. HE favors any one who plays rugby and to hell with the rest of us.
you learn a lot from this guy because he is obvious passionate abotu what he teaches
This teacher knows his stuff and puts in the effort. but gives you the most pointless and useless activities. but it's usually okay because you can learn his entire year in like a day
Good teacher but often went out topic...He study sessions are helpful but he could have plan it sooner in the year instead of a week before Provincial...Also....He tends to CRAM everything 2 days before school ends...and his test is base in teh provicial and it's so HARD!
Mr. Clemente is an eloquent speaker in both English and French. There is an evident amount of effort in how he gives notes and details information in classes. Unfortunately he tends to give rather redundant information and have rather useless class activities. There's a lack of coursework and occassionally rather pertinent information is insufficiently covered, rendering exams quite difficult.
nice guy but his teaching style sux.... you don't learn anything and his tests are so hard to pass
SUPER TEACHER! guy knows his stuff and likes to teach so if you dont waste your time in his class you will get something out of it
he doesn't favor rugby players, he hates them, thers about 10 in my class, always in trouble for nothing! he still needs to learn some ways to make his classes a bit more fun,btw, he looks at this yo!
none of u turds no what ur talking about... Mr Clemente is a great teacher! He is fun and it is not hard to learn in his class, it is ur fault if u dont pay attention!
aw guys i think your kind of harsh, sure hes not the greatest teacher but he tries. i DONT think he favours students. but i do agree that his tests are WAY too hard for the amount we learn/dont learn.
He knows a lot about what he's talking about, but he has absolutely no Idea how to pass that knoledge onto us. He needs new ways to show us tihngs, because we dont learn anytihng this way.
HOLY! He talks for 10 classes straight, makes us watch a movie, then gives us a project. WORST TEACHER EVER!! he only likes you if you're a guy + rugby player. LEARN HOW TO TEACH!!
I think I've now seen enough CBC documentarys for my whole life. He completly favors rugby students, and marks on a scale of whatever he feels like. I started with 90% droped to 67
There is absolutely NO way you will appreciate colouring maps and watching movies at the end of the year. His finals are extremely specific.
Dude, he's making us watch movies and colour maps. He won't LET us grow up.
You whiners will appreciate him once you're done. So you watch a lot of movies... and colour a lot of maps... would you rather write essays? Grow up.
OMG, worst teacher ever. You learn through movies. Don't even bother in his class. He just averages the rest of your grades to make your soc. grade anyways.
he does appear to favour rugby students. he's into what he talks about, but he has no idea how to get the students into it as well.
Everything out of text; favors rugby students; All over the place: I had 69 one term, and then all of a sudden I jumped to 90; You watch lot's of movies, though
hes cool cuz i play rugby so hes easy on me. but alot of the time he wont really clarify stuff so i will have to ask some smart kid. qir.
A very unclear teacher, who does know his stuff, but seems very lazy. Totally favours his rugby students. Could sleep all year and still pass the course.
