I don't see why everyone complains about him. There have been successful people in his class. Sometimes people just see his name on their timetable and give up :/. Not fair to bash him. A lot of the stuff people say is biased anyway. Maybe if your friends didn't influence you, you'd have a different opinion

BRUH, this is a teacher you don't want. Doesn't teacher, hands out random papers and his notes are from 2012. When you ask for an explanination, he answers it by stating a different question and what that question means. We asked him in our IB class the same question 3 times by 3 different students and each got a different answer. Don't recommend, prepare to use the textbook a lot and RIP if HL

2 Weeks into grade 11 ib chem and he still hasn't taught us a lesson without confusing the entire class. And the two lessons he gave came with long talks about soy sauce stains on his shirt and talking about his family. He forgot to tell our class that we had a quiz and assigned an assignment without explaining it and he still hasn't taught the lesson for us to complete the assignment. If you get foot, get a tutor or switch out.

Mr. Foot may have Chemistry knowledge but he surely can't explain it without confusing the whole class. He jams units and tests as well as labs at the LAST moment making everything impossible. He doesn't even teach us lessons...instead, he tells us to go online and view his useless PDFs. I, as well as the rest of the class have been teaching ourselves everything. Very unorganized and he blames the students when they are confused. He also can't monitor his own class during tests! Worst teacher!

Before Foot's class, I was told he was a super nice guy, but was terrible at teaching. I didn't think that he would be that bad. But holy crap as nice as he is, the absolute worst teacher I have ever had in my entire life. He is ridiculously unorganized, his notes are written by two year old's, his tests will sometimes have material that you wouldn't learn, he would pick on people in class, and simply cannot articulate any information he has learned. GET OUT OF HIS CLASS IMMEDIATELY.

Honestly, one of the WORST teachers at Ancaster High...followed by Mr. Taylor, who also can't teach. Since this is about Mr. Foot, I'll stick to talking about him.
Firstly, VERY unorganized. I suggest you keep amazing notes because he won't be an help. This is like the Hunger Games. You're on your own. Secondly, his lessons don't make any sense. Again, back to his organization, it's very hard to follow along. He mumbles and stumbles and his notes are probably written by his little kids.

Confusing and a useless waste of a teacher's salary - Mr. Foot proves that, while one can know a subject, that does not ensure that they are somehow good teachers. Everyone on here is right in saying that he is the most unorganized person ever. His notes are handwritten and illegible. It honestly looks like chicken scratches! Terrible teacher, cannot teach. Sad that he's the IB chem teacher. Our entire class is on the verge on failure and apparently we're the "smart ones". Avoid him at all cost!

Mr. Foot is extremely disorganized and unclear. His notes are scattered, and when he does examples, he does half the math in his head without explanation. Also, when you ask questions he makes you feel like you're an utter moron, even when it is a completely valid question. Mr. Foot may be a genius when it comes to chemistry but due to his lack of knowledge on basic english, it is almost impossible for him to ACTUALLY teach.

Easily the worst teacher I've had, and perhaps at the school. Noticed in particular (although it wasn't me) that he finds one student to be angry at the entire semester. Although extremely knowledgable, isn't willing (or able) to share this with students; lazy, and disorganized; makes up notes in illegible SmartBoard writing (and even has the gall to admit that they're incomprehensible). I am also certain he's depressed. If you are stuck, simply do not continue with sciences. It's that bad.

Let me tell you a story. He gave me a 60% on an assignment because I missed a section. I walked up and showed him that it was indeed there - all 20 pages of it. I then got an 85.
