He is the best high school teacher I ever had. If you do your work and put in the effort you will do well. He is very strict but that's what you need in a teacher.

He is not an easy teacher,I had him in Law 12 and I LOVED his class, my fav class by far! He's very strict and straight forward,good qualities for a man with his education background. He deserves respect from students and makes sure to get it, which is a good thing despite what some H.S students say. He gives everyone the test questions, in exact order about a week before the test so unless you are the lazyest student there's no way you won't get A's and B's sometimes. I finished Law 12 with 83%

He is a hard marker but is generally lenient on essays. He is really knowledgeable about the subjects that he's teaching. Generally gives little hw everyday, but timeconsuming. really liked his class.

He has an authoritarian approach, so it's difficult to relax and ask questions. Sometimes it's a little scary. I do like how he was a challenging teacher and made us work hard, though.

So hard to get a decent grade, no matter how much time you spend. I got an A+ in English 12 but Gluska gave me Cs and kept telling me how horrible my essay writing was. Very frustrating.

He can be your worst teacher or your best. For me he was one of the best ones. His classes are difficult for sure, and yes, he has a huge ego, but he's intelligent and really makes you think and try.

Tough, tough, tough marker. You can't get past him with anything. He's very strict and gets real angry if you miss a day. Extremely hard to score an A in his class. If your in his class, all i can say is good luck!

Mr. Gluska was the best teacher that I had. One of the few who actually challenges you, and who doesn't (or at least didn't at the time) follow the crowd with multiple guess questions. I hope he's around for my kids.

it's ironic when he asks students if they think 'they're' the center of the universe. He says we buy cellphones we dont need, as his ego buys huge truck a teacher dosent need.
