The work load made we want to jump out of a window. His name should be synonymous with inconsiderate, because he is inconsiderate of your other classes. His test are ridiculous, you must know word for word everything mentioned in your textbook, no matter how brief. He is a nice person, I will not lie, he attempts to be funny (sometimes it he is, sometimes he is not). He very passive aggressive, to the point that it is funny. I would avoid him as a teacher if you have a hard semester.

Mr. Fernback is a great teacher. At lunchtime, his door was always open to anyone who needed help. He was hilarious and enjoyable to be a student for. I have learned a lot in geography thanks to him, and he has turned geography as my least favourite subject into my favourite. When I misunderstood him for an assignment, he allowed me to redo it and helped me finish to the best of my ability. Thanks for having me in your class! (Sudbury Wolf)

my grades with this man weren't based on me actually handing in the work, it was based on if i tried to do it. when i got sick he was very understanding and made things less stressful on me... well at least in his class. he went and talked to all my teachers asking them to take an easy for a while and to give me some time and space. for that, this teacher is amazing. hes very understanding so if you talk with him, he should understand. hes a great guy, and id take his classes over and over again

This one has enthusiasm but also seems to undermine or talk down to studens -- sometimes going as far as insulting the class. This teacher gave no clarity as to why he gave a student a mark. Students that handed their assignments in late consistently got a better grade than I did; there was a bias in his classes, and cross referencing it with other students confirmed it. Fascinating content in his Introduction to anthro, soc and psych classes though.
