He was the reason I got into every art school I applied for. While not realizing it at the time he put me in an excellent place to explore who I wanted to be as an artist and be an independent painter. It wasn't about doing projects for the sake of doing them, it was about exploring your creativity and now every once in a while I find myself extremely appreciative for having him as a teacher and I owe a great deal of gratitude to him.

Mrs.Goodson is one of my favourite teachers ever!! He is so nice and great at teaching. I first came into the class not knowing any techniques on drawing and shading, or how to mix paints to get the correct colour, but now I do. Overall I learned a lot and he is a great teacher.
I was a difficult-to-be-around student with a big annoying crush on him. Graduated 2004. He's still the most important influence I've had to keep painting. Well done, Mike. See you someday at a huge gallery opening. I promise I won't hit on you. -Rachel
great art teacher! before i took his class i never painted with acrylics and now i'm great at them. he was great help with mixing colours and giving critique. as long as you're not a slow painter you should take his class. if you're slow you'll need to stay after school, maybe take your painting home for a weekend. i reccomend taking his art class.
Graduated in 2006. Mike Goodson has been the best teacher I have ever had, and I still cry when I read what he wrote in my yearbook. Just don't take his art courses over and over and over....
I went to JMSS from 2000 to 2003, and graduated with honours. I took every single one of Mikes courses, and I continued to use lessons he taught me through college and into the work force. This guy is one of the best teachers I've ever had (including college professors.)
I had a lot of fun in film class. I probably wouldn't have watched any of those movies on my own time but I enjoyed each of them. : D Really nice guy.
Mike! I miss thursdays painting in the art room, eating pizza! omg, I had so many good times in grade 11 & 12 art and film. Its a lot of work tho, especially if ur a slow painter
ITS A BICYCLE!! haha, thanks mike for introduing me to the Prisoner, probably one of the best tv series' ive ever seen in my life!! when are we gonna watch the last episode?
he's not that great. very over rated. very annoying. not as intelligent as he makes himself out to be. sorry i didnt finish my painting on time, believe it or not i had OTHER priorities.
Inspirational. If you love art and want to learn more than just how to slosh paint on canvas, this is the class for you. If you want an "easy" grade because you think art is a bird course, try something else. Fun to have as a teacher as well as knowledgeable.
awesome teacher. he is knowledgable and is really nice
Mike's the greatest. Although usually he leaves class to go somewhere (still wondering where that is???), he was still a great teacher and would always help you when he could. He related way more to us than any other teacher and treated us like we were friends or something rather than just his students. You rock Mike.
great teacher, I learned alot, not just about art. Although, he may be a better teacher if he were around more often
awesome, awesome, awesome. offended me once but apologized :). AMAZING TEACHER! THX MR GOODSON
Mike is anawesome teacher cause he doesn't treat his class like a whole bunch of bad kids.He understands and trusts us.(sorry mike but you aren't that great at teaching english).i had a great time in your class and i hope i can be in another one of your classes.
Okay, you were mean to me once, but you still rule!!! We're both artists and I've learned a lot from you.
Mike is awesome. He is so cool and knows how we think! He rocks.
Isn't it the greatest to be an ART teacher. Easy course, no need for his help and no need to be clear - it's art. Vacation for Mike everyday!
by far one of the most thought provoking teachers I've ever had pushing the limits of my imagination.you are by far one of the greatest~!
Every day in my class, he ordered at least 2 cheese burgers and fries, by the end of the school year, he had probably eated twice his own body weight.
mikes the greatest. Ill miss you in the summer, mike. mike.
Best teacher ever, thanks for the greatest years in art class!
