Mr. V isthe GOAT. Love that man. Made geo fun. Takes no crap but still relates. Had him three times. Wvsryone should have to take his World Issues class.
Mr. Van Zant is one of the best teachers I have ever had. He is unbelievably knowledgeable on nearly any topic you can think of, and can explain anything that you need to be explained. He treats you like an adult and teaches you that way too.
I'll miss being in his class - it was the best one I had in grade 9.
You can tell he know's his stuff. But he can't teach. I got such a low mark, and geo is supposed to be easy. Things were too complicated. Can't believe geo had to drop my average.
He's literally the most monotone, boring teacher you'll ever have. He's a know it all that doesn't give any group work/collaborative assignments. I don't care if you wrote the outline for geography in peel (which he mentions a lot)
Mr. Vanzant is probably the most qualified teacher I have ever had. He is passionate and knowledgable in geography and teaches in a way that makes learning nearly effortless. I would recommend attending Mayfield for the individuals like Mr. Vanzant who keep the learning environment both entertaining and interesting. He wrote the textbook used in Gr. 11 physical geography and knows what he's talking about!
Dj Pauly V was a crystal clear homie, but his work was hard dang straight
Mr.Vanzant was very passionate about geography, he was kinda scary sometimes but he was very funny, and didn't like skippers.
Mr. Van Zant was a really great teacher. He loves geography and social studies so he knows what he's talking about. He makes a lot of jokes and he's a funny guy, and really relaxed. He likes to sit do
He is such a good teacher. He knows what he is talking about, and explains it very well. Mr. Vanzant is very understanding, and try's to help you out as much as he can, so you get the better mark. :)
One of my favourite teachers ever :) If you are actually interested in what he teaches, and participate in class, you will love it. Droning voice in lectures can get the whole class to sleep though :P
One of my favourite teachers. World Issues is obviously something he's passionate about, and his lectures are very straightforward. He always says what he thinks, and shows both sides of a story.
Okay. Funny guy, boring lessons. Can be a harsh marker, which really got to me. Definitely intelligible, but does not seem to relate to each of his students on a friendly and personal level.
He's hilarious, also a good teacher, has a lot of knowledge about geography, and probably a lot more subjects too
VZ is amazing! had him for world issues and even though he talks a lot if you actaully listen he's the quite the knowledgable dude. loved his random stories in the middle of his lectures
He's pretty cool. Knows his stuff. Gets along well with the students. But has definite favourites.
BEST TEACHER EVER!!! i luved it wen he said good morning children! he taught me the most stuff out of all my teachers and was fun at the same time! =D
The greatest! Best teacher I ever had at Mayfield - loves geography and cares about his students.
He's a great teacher! when he went to Antartica, he even took two whole periods to tell us about the trip. Amazing teacher!
his movie is SO stupid,but funny as hell, amazingly good teacher, tip: just study all notes he writes on his board, and u'll do amazingly well on tests, great guy
Very smart and knowledgeable about his field. He made geo. as interesting as is possible. Which I appreciate. Can be tough but always comes through for his students.
mr vz makes geo so interesting and understandable...'specially wen he tells us his opinions!
amazing-makes geo as good as it can b like its geo come on-he actualy cares about stuff around d world -alil much bout hockey but dats ok-tlks alot-id take his world issues class
What a cool guy! He made geography amazing! Gotta love the blackflies movie. I miss geography already.
Teaches the best lectures at Mayfield. Opened so many eyes to what is really going on in the world, extremely intelligent and willing to share his knowledge.
I wish I could remember the name of that 'Blackflies' movie. I've had it stuck in my head ever since. You rock, VanZant.
i odn't pay attention at all and im stlil getting an 80. easy class, not really boring, but he tries to make it as fun as possible. Great teacher!
Tough marker, very to the point, blunt, and extremely interesting. Wouldn't have had it any other way.. thank you sir!
Here I am in university studying geography, and what can I say? I owe er' all to you.
Great teacher, fun guy. I loved all the physical geo videos! If I thought there was more money in the field I would definitely go into it b/c I had so much fun!
Mr. VanZant, we love you! thnks for the i love geography pencil if there were more time in the world, your recruiting efforts would have worked.
HAHA I had a great time in his class. Failed but good time none the less. He is a great teacher and I wish I tried harder. DITH PRAN RULES!
Mr. Vanzant was an awesome teacher when I was there, back in the day! Thanks for your help...Kristi
great teacher, extremely loud though, its IMPOSIBLE to tune him out.
Fair, fun, and helpful. Very interesting and enjoyable classes.
