Had him in night school in my grade 12 year in 2014 and he was so easy also he's hilarious and super laid back. He quizzes you on memorizing characters names which he gives in advance and the work he assigned our friends marked it not him so it was easy. He's not picky at all, if you can write without using slang and bad grammar you'll get atleast a 5/6 on essays! Overall this guy's the man and the best

The WORST english teacher I have ever had. He spends the whole class making jokes and then gives TONS of homework for the next day. I didn't learn ANYTHING. He printed off the IMDB profile for movies, made us memorize them and that is all he quizzed us on all year. Also, he takes jokes way too far. He called one girl an obvious outcast and said he was shocked she found partners to work with. He also is very unpredictable. One minute you'll be laughing and the next he'll be screaming at you! Hate

I was one of Mr. Raible's Night class students. He's the best English teacher i ever had, really gave me the courage to continue with my writing. His way of teaching is great, always cracking jokes--i love when he rambles off about his life stories. So funny. He's more of a friend than a teacher. I'll never forget how much he's helped me.

Unpredictable and bipolar. Does not teach anything - simply does not care about teaching. Gives ridiculous movie quizzes where we have to memorize every single actor in the movie, the year it was released etc. Sometime will not even check homework, other days will scream at you if you have it incomplete. Will be cheerful one moment and completely raging the next. What is this???
