Mr.Burgess is SO great. I have him for Biology right now. It's only been a week, but I think he is awesome. My sister had him and thought he was awesome too. He is so knowledgeable, kind, and just great. He cares about the students a lot. And he loves his job (you can tell), so he teaches very well. Biology is pretty interesting on its own, but Mr.Burgess helps make it extra fascinating :) If you get him, you should be happy!

Mr Burgess is the most wonderful man to ever grace the Canterbury halls with his presence. Not only is he a fantastic teacher, making biology ten times more comprehensible, but he takes interest in his students as actual people and sincerely cares about their well being. Great sense of humour, all around great teacher and person.

I would give this guy 10/5 if I could. Had him for grade 12 biology and you can tell he is passionate about the course and very willing to throw away his notes (for the time being) to have very interesting discussions for the whole class. Don't be afraid to approach him to talk to him about anything! He'll help you out in any way he can. Very understanding and an amazing teacher. You'll learn lots and love it to.

He made chemistry so much fun! and he was a very caring teacher; made sure to maintain one-on-one relationships with students. If I become a teacher one day, I want to try to have some of his many commendable traits!

one of the best teachers, easily. if you're not getting it, he'll sit down and help until yore getting the hang of it. Very flexible and understanding. Dont' let his laxed outlok on tests convince you not to study or review, when he says its no biggie yu'll be fine, it means not to stress yourself and not sleep. not expect a cakewalk. it's a fair class.
