I was super intimidated by him at first, but there's really no need to be. He's a great guy who just wants his students to succeed. He pushes you to your limits, and makes sure he teaches a lot of life lessons along the way. He's not an easy marker, but it's also not impossible to do well on his in-class essay and ISU, even though many people do bad. Just strictly follow his format and you'll be fine. He's also really helpful and super sweet. 100% would recommend. Don't stress, get splashed :)
MR.BLAKE IS KNOWN AS A VERY HARD MARKER, WHICH HE IS HE HAS LOADS OF KNOWLEDGE AND WILL TEACH YOU VERY WELL. JUST REMEMBER ONE THING, HUMANS ARE COMPLEX CREATURES!!!!
Great Teacher. Loved every second of his class, for each second of his class was more knowledge and this is evident in my new writing skills. Amazing Teacher.
Mr.blake is the best teacher I have ever had, he is so awesome, he teahces you sooo much, but he can be strict at times, some advice dont let the number get to you, I failed my ISU and still got out of his class with a 75, he is really nice on the inside and hes amazing just listen and pay attention youll be set
Awesome teacher, much better than most English teachers I've had so far
he is the best teacher in the entire world. I currently have him. Mr. Blake, you might not seem innocent when someone looks at you but the way you teach is awesome. I actually learn something from you, everyday.
The most magnificent teaching professional. I am in second year of university, but this man has taught me so much spiritually, and academically. His class teaches more than english, he teaches the meaning of life through real world concepts.
Roger Blake is one of the most memorable teachers I have ever had the opportunity to have and I am writing this as a University graduate. Future students of his : Dont be scared- its all an act, he is truly the biggest softy. He is so approachable so do not think that you need to avoid looking him in those intimidating,ice blue eyes. He is such a good man. Best of luck. ~embrace the soul man
All you need to do in class is listen and you're set. He's very strict, but also very specific so if you follow instructions you'll pass. And anybody having him for grade 12 doesn't need to worry, he's really understanding and you'll probably end up with a higher average than other English classes...and you'll know a lot more too :)
What can I say about you Mr. Blake? Amazing teacher, truly one of the best teachers I have EVER had! The lessons you have taught me, I will never forget in my lifetime. I just hope that I can grow up to be a person who can pass on your lessons to others. Thank you for making such a big difference in my life.
He is the most amazing teacher ever! I probably would have failed my ELP without him and most of my Arts Breath courses.
Best English Teacher I have ever HAD! Bun JoJo.Best English Teacher I have ever HAD! Best English Teacher I have ever HAD! Best English Teacher I have ever HAD! Best English Teacher I have ever HAD! B
I've never had a class with a legitimate learning curve, until I met Mr. Blake. Takes some adjustment, but well worth it. He makes you actually want to come to class, because you're always enlightened
He's the best teacher ever. When he looks at you, it scares you so much, but at the end of the day, going to his class makes you feel like you accomplished something. And every class, you learn a life
I didnt get splashed but it was still fun nonetheless. I think Mr.Blake is one of the greatest teachers in the world and this is evident in.... Thats main thing i learned
wow, only one week into my first class with him (grade 9) and i am loving this course!
how much of an increase/decrease will your final mark have when he includes "how much you have learnt"
Great teacher...sad to see the semester end since I may not have him next year.
AMAZING teacher! Hes the best english teacher I have ever had!
HE'S AMAZING BEST ENGLISH TEACHER EVER, I GOT SPLASHED!
He's awesome! His class is the only place where you fail and not regret it because you learn so much after! amazing teacher!
he's the biggest softy. i laugh at the people that are scared of him, because he really is the biggest teddy bear.- if hes starring at you, dont look away.
Mr. Blake is one of my favourite teachers, and I've learned so much more in his english class than any other in my lifetime. Although my marks are not in the 90's like other classes, I don't mind beca
Take his class, you will never regret. If you miss his class, you are missing a life-time experience.
a fabulous teacher who has very high requirements but it's worth it.
best teacher i have ever had. you will learn things that you have never realized before. dont be scared for marks if you are in grade 12. your marks will be the same, if not higher than other classes.
He is truly an intellectual and an educator. I'm in university now and I am quite surprised how I still remember his words. And you know what, if you have him as your English teacher, you are safe.
Best teacher ever ... just do exactly as he says and u'll do awsome!!!!!! Just keep asking questions till you get SPLASHED!!!!!!!!!
Thank goodness I changed my schedule today! I switched into your class by taking economics instead of west and the world!!! I could have re-taken all those sciences just to get into your class, Mr. Blake. Why? simply because you are the greatest man in the graydon. I never had confidence in English before I took your class. I really made the greatest choice of entering your class in grade 11. SPLASH!!!~
Mr. Blake is the most inspiring person in the world.
if u get the chance to switch... switch into blakes class.. he luks scary.. but hes really cool.. u learn so much with him... not just english.. for those wu hate english.. hes the teacher.. theres hope.. i thought i was hopeless now i enjoy english.. and marks dont wry bout it.. it will go up.. just trust him... do ur best.. blake rocks... :D
He's a really awesome teacher. Definitely thinks very highly of himself...but he's smart enough to deserve it. You may think the first assignments are hard, but you'll learn how to do them.
Awesome teacher. Intimidated by the first few weeks from him, but once you get to know him better, you really appreciate what he's doing for you. Grade 11 English with him was possibly the most rewarding course I've ever had in all of high school. A very hard marker, but the final mark is very fair. He's great in that he's very succinct and straight to the point.
I NEED HIM FOR GRADE 12! honestly he is the most amazing and unbelievable teacher you will ever encounter. So fair, and intellectual and intelligent.
I was intimidated at first, but after two years in his class, I can say that I learned how to write a lot better. He may not hand out 95% on essays like Ms. Manny, but he's still a very good teacher.
If you like thinking, a challenging environment and someone who is truly inspirational, then you'll like Mr. Blake. I'm happy to be in his class.
Most awesome teacher ever!!!! Teaches you lots about life and has great jokes ^^ Very wise and kind! Definitely have him for English!!!
Absolutely no homework, knows what he is talking about and prepares you for university.
Amazing..at first really scared me and was intimidating but he is the best teacher I have ever had! I love your life lessons and I know you *really do care*Dont ever change!
Beware: He WILL teach you lessons on life! Amazing teacher he is. Hope I never have a teacher like him - as no one could ever be able to compete to his level. Always remember the two grade 11 students you had in your grade 12 class in 2004 ;)
very scary and very intimidating at first...but he is such an amazing teacher. your life will never be the same afterwards. Go Mr. Blake w00t w00t
One of the best teachers ever. Witty and actually teaches.
Mr. Blake was supportive, witty and a good teacher. He was awesome. Only class I learned anything in.
the most amazing teacher i've ever had... i'll never forget him... and he's not scary!!! he's such a softy once you get to know him!
Awesome teacher. Very cool and scary at the same time.
Mr. Blake, ur cool! The best teacher ever! Still looking for my heart of darkness! ooohhh!
One of the most influential teachers I have ever had. Crazy at times, but he always showed that he had method in his madness. I actually learned something.
Great man, great teacher. First inspiring teacher i've ever had...
Smart man... knows his stuff. One of the few English classes with no BS work.
The time that I spent in his classroom was hard but enjoyable. One of the best I've have over my four years.
BEST TEACHER IN THE WORLD!!!!!!!! almost failed, but great to be in the class
