A funny, helpful teacher. recommends things for you to boost your mark up but is not always in the classroom. if you skip a lot, he will hunt you down and give you a lecture saying he will call your parents and that you might be in risk of failing and tell your other teachers. he makes a lot of jokes saying that you will have to give him money if you don't do this or that but a chill ,pleasant teacher to have.

He thinks he's all that, it sucks in drawing and painting he doesn't teach anything he's always gone all class, you just copy things all class. When we do projects he's so harsh and puts you down bc it's not "his style" or "what he likes" very hard to get an A, he's mean, and always talks about money, like how "if you don't wash that brush you're gonna have to give me more money" BLAH. He's mean. And sucks at teaching

The qualities I look in a teacher: helpfulness, humour, and teaching factor. Mr. Lawrence had excelled in all of the listed criteria. Using humour to spice up the classroom atmosphere, combined with his elegant art skills to demonstrate us how to do things is a must-have teacher for once.

I'm sitting three friends from Windermere, grad '97. We all had Mr. L we were just sitting around talking about his classes, and each of our favourite memories. Where are you now Mr. L. Hot pink and lime green forever!

I've learned so much in his class. He is strict but he is helpful. I asked him how to improve my painting, he would demonstrate his skills and then teach me step by step to get better results.
