Mr. Bateman was the nicest teacher I had and I had so much respect for him as he did for my group of friends and I. I had him in his last semester before retirement and I'm so glad I got to experience his class.
I had Mr. Bateman for Grade 12 religion and I have to say that I had a wonderful experience with him as a teacher. He was always there for you, and always accommodating. Yes he can go off on random tangents at times, but hey, who doesn't like a little break? 😉 And for some ratings how he favours band students? Not true at all. I barely knew who he was besides a simple hello here and there in the hallways, but I was just a good student who pulled off a great mark. Enjoy your rrtirment, Mr. B!
Favourite teacher! if you happen to show a little bit of respect to him then you're basically all set - super easy and extremely thoughtful of his students.
He is so rude he insults students, yells about the tinyist things and he makes fun o your taste of music
Mr. Bateman is really annoying, of topic, and I do not like his class.
If you say he only picks band kids as his favourite then you're just the one who never shows and when you do, you just love to hear your own voice. Show a bit of respect and put a bit of effort in and he likes you.
Definitely chooses favourites and there's nothing that can be done about it unless you decide to join band. That being said he is quite knowledgeable and does offer some help at lunch occasionally. He tends to tell the same stories constantly.
this teacher is very rude , and doesnt care about his students, i had him for religion though i know this is music mark and he expressed inappropate views on sensitive topic. he is rude and a narcassist
Absolutely ridiculous. Students say that teachers pick favorites as an excuse for their bad marks, but I mean it when I say it when I say he picks favorites. If your musical tastes don't match his exactly, then he will look down upon you. Also, he doesn't like Pink Floyd. Who doesn't like Pink Floyd?!
very unorganized. will give you bad marks if he doesnt like you. pick favorites. disrespectiful. has made me lost interest in band.
Great Music Class. Entertaining, but at the same time really knows his stuff about music in general and also the music industry.
This guy is awesome. We don't do anything in his class. It's so amazing how off-topic he can get during religion conversations. We always somehow endup talking politics in religion
ur awsome but the meditating thing is sooo boring. maybe we should do something besides listening 2 u talk for 75 minutes and reading out of the text book.
If you have done something he doesn't like then he will get mad at you!
he is so0o0o00o0o boring! i hate him so much every time i walk into his class i fall asleep
This guy hates all music except Bach. Tell him you like classical music.
this guy rocks. fairly easy going, has a funny sense of humour and knows his information incredibly well
if you dont make a good impression from get go he will not give you marks
