Reist is the type of person who will give up easy A's if you go along with what he's babbling about and don't ask too many hard questions. He is desperate for validation, and even makes up his own theoretical world to get it. You just have to agree and he'll give you a good mark, no matter how absurd or pompous he sounds. Only down side is that he hates it when his students grow up and surpass him.
He was ok. None of his ideas mean anything in the real world, though.
He's ok, unless you're better than him at anything. If he starts competing with you, he'll become smug and self-centered in discussions. But that's the same with all academics, living in a make believ
This guy is THE best! He's funny, knows more than half the school's teachers combined, and is the easiest teacher to get along with. The world needs more teachers like him. 10/5
wow, cant say enough good things about him, love his class his independant lit class was amazing, hes so brilliant, and actually such a funny person. very caring, and hes helped me so much
I think he is the greatest teacher at hall... i've had him 3 times and honestly i have never learned so much from any other teacher. So knowledgable (everything is stored to his harddrive) and funny!
the best i've ever had, and whoever complained about him picking favourites, he's obviously not going to like you if you talk like that about him! he's a brilliant man, we'd all do good to know him!
very knowledgeable teacher, he seems to know something about everything regardless of what it is. good sense of humour, very understanding, many good qualities in this man
I've never had such an amazing teacher in my life. He understands the problems of public speaking you may have and helps you overcome them. He is so understanding and wise and really funny!
THIS GUY IS A GENIUS!!!! i used to hate english but he made it interesting!!! by far one of my favorite teachers.... im actually doing my non fiction seminar right now lol
He is the best person ever and im not even in one of his classes... wish i was though
MR REIST IS THE MOST KOOLEST TEACHER EVERRR!! I LOVE HIMM!!
hes amazing...the best time in an english class...im soo happy i was in there..i learned so much..i enjoyed that class..i actaully looked forward to it. The man is a genius..i love listening to him talk...if only here at university all professors were like that
Wow, words can not explain how briillant and amazing this man is. I've learned so much from him, not only about english but about life in general, and how to think more abstract. By far the best teacher I have ever had. SIR, your amazing, Hall benefits from you so much!
Mr. Reist was so knowledgeable and briliant! He was passionate and interesting to listen to all the time! He always offered great advice whenever needed!
the best teacher I could ask for. one who nurtures my love of literature rather than oppressing me with what he wants me to do. allowing me into his gr12 lit class while in gr10 was the best thing evr
Probably the best teacher I have ever had. He made English fun and knew how to joke around with the class.
7 years after I graduated I still run into people and talk about how wonderful this teacher is in every possible way. An inspiration in not just what he taught but how he taught it.
Mr Reist is very knowledgeful and passionate about english. His personality would be well suited to a lawyer. His methods of teaching are varied and overall interesting. Exemplary overall.
You're a great teacher and I was glad to be in your 4u and lit this year. I learned so much from you. You definitely went above and beyond. You should do the grad speech this year.
The first thing that comes to mind when i see or hear about Mr. Reist is GREATNESS!
Reist is the best teacher I have ever encountered, in high school or university. Amazing man - definitely above the rest at Robert Hall - brilliant, witty and compassionate.
Greatest teacher ever!!! Very knowledgeble, yet funny. He does not intimidate students with his wisdom, but helps you out as much as he can. Sees the best in everyone. Awesom!
Sir you have knowledge and a sense of humour! What a combination. He's actually interested in the subject he teaches, which makes his students more likely to pay attention!Ur great
The most brilliant man I have EVER encountered, learned so much about literature, life and myself! He has such knowledge about life and society, REIST FOR PRIME MINISTER...AWESOME!
BEST teacher i ever come across, smart, witty, and fun. He even cut me a break when i messed up big on my exam, If you have him you've been blessed from above.
The only teacher that ever made me interested in English. Motivated me to accell in academics and by extension furthered my athletic career and opened up new doors for me. Thanks.
He is honestly one of the most amazing people I have ever come across! I give this man my upmost respect and thank him for shaping me into the person I have become! AMAZING
i heard english was really hard but he made it really easy. there was absolutly no homework(well except for some little stuff). hes a cool dude!!e
He genuinly cared about what he taught. He taught us to fight the system. This was the best teacher I have had. Allowed us (and treated us) like adults rather than children.
Genuinely, the most influencial teacher I've had. Independant Lit was the most thought-provoking class a grade 12 could as for. Reist embraces literature rather than critiquing it.
Greatest english teacher EVER!!!! I learned so much and REALLY enjoyed the class. Very sincere, helpful...BRILLIANT!!!
Don't listen to Adriano- Mr. Reist is one of the best and most sincere teachers I've ever had. And he's surprisingly liberal, although he doesn't look it. Take Independent Lit
Out of Hall for a while now, probably the best teacher I had there though. Smart man, and cares about both his subject and students.
I had him in OAC (5 years ago) and I can honestly say that I respect him and I feel he has a genuine interest in his students. Unlike Horton who's an ego-manic
He's so intelligent but he shares his intelligence. He's so cool, I can't find any other word to describe him besides AWESOME!
i love mr reist he has a wittiness about him and he acts like he does it so naturally
