I will always remember NEVER being able to watch a movie uninterrupted hahaha! he would always pause to explain the significance of something, like (if someone is standing under a cealing fan and its spinning it means there mind is all confused, or if a lightbulb is on over there head they had an idea) lol things like that.. Can be a little confusing at times :p

Hopefully Borek has grown as a teacher over the years. At Brock High School in the '80s all he did was lecture, lecture and then lecture some more. Entire classes would have him droning on about anything and everything --- except English. The only thing I can now surmise is that he never had lesson plans created.

Mr. "Grammar Man" Borek. One of my favourite teachers and friends, of course. You were right, grammar lessons helped for college and your 'life lessons' grew to be of equal importance.

He is a good teacher for the most part. He tends to lecture us a lot though on stuff that isn't even relevant. We only do warm ups, and grammer in my writers craft class...kind of annoying.

My two classes with him were my favourite ever. He treated us like adults and expected us to be responsible... and he let us draw on the wall.

Plays Favourites. Acts like he knows everything. He's one of the worst teachers I've ever had. Everything he said about University wasn't true. He doesn't know a thing about the "real world"
