I was lucky enough to have two of the greatest Tech teachers in my 4 years at the Woodlands; Vendryes & Walsh. Vendryes is incredibly knowledgeable; he's a great teacher and was a pleasure to learn from. He can be a little out there at times with his lectures on life and institutions and about 200 other controversial topics but I honestly learned so much from him. He encourages independent thinking but got a little fussy when you didn't arrive at a similar solution to him. Still one of the best!
He is an OK teacher. He's helpfull when you ask him thoughtfull questions and and says something sarcatic if it isnt. He isnt too clear on what he wants usually and if you ask him about if you could do this or that on your project he just says"i dont care, its your project" he doesnt mark too hard though.
cool, knowledge with hands-on stuff! handy in the workshop! great
He's the only reason I considered staying at the Woodlands
think "stand-up comedian + good tech teacher + fair marker + a beard to match" - i wonder where hes from i mean he looks like hes indian at first glance but talks like a european and his first name is martin
IT IS IMPOSSIBLE TO MAKE A CAR TOO LIGHTx 50. but a hillarious teacher. very nice and ver fair. u cant ask for a better teacher
Possibly the smartest person i've ever met. Good teacher.
Such an amazing teacher! Really encourages self dependance and thinking. He is really fun to talk to and has the best stories
gr 9....first day..."IT IS IMPOSSIBLE TO MAKE UR CAR TOO LIGHT" nd he prolly seys that 40 times each class
Ugh. Communications Tech. Don't take it. When he does a demo on the computer, he does it so fast, saying, "Click here, here, here, here, and here. See?" And that is the demo. We all have to crowd around one computer while he 'demonstrates' what we're supposed to do. He's not a bad guy, but he should show us more and explain what he's doing, and why.
Hes a good wordworking tech teacher for the most part. However, if you have any questions, tough luck for you. Instead of responding to your question, he gives you a lecture on the purpose of life that takes about 30 minutes minimum, and after that he STILL hasn't answered your question. Other than that, great teacher. Marks hard though...
I shake my head at all you who hate VENDRYES. He is so helpful and is so funny. he makes school so much more bareable. He understands how boring school is for us!!
A really cool guy once you get talking to him. Thing is, that's the hard part, he's not really into "conversing". But he's really smart and emphasizes thinking.
Often gives vague instructions and makes us figure out stuff on our own. When he does a demo on the computer, he does it so fast that no one can see properly.
