Im now in university, and when I recall Picard, I can honestly say I encountered a master of his field. You are very lucky to experience a teacher that is Picard.
BEST TEACHER EVER!
He has to be one of the best teachers I have ever met. His essays are marked a little on the hard side but don't worry, he'll end up scaling everything so it works out fine. Sometimes he'll pick on some students and ask them some hard-ass questions but if you get it wrong don't worry about it. He's so organized and extremely knowledgeable, he can recite dates and events out of thin air in seconds like its nothing. His class activities are really fun too.
Picard constantly makes up his own jokes and laughs at them. None of the kids understand what da heel hes talkin bout. Mostly all related with history
he's a great teacher but his tests are extremely hard
He is probably the only teacher that made me like social studies. He sometimes may go off topic and talk about hockey and his vacation. But he is straight forward on his criteria and what's on his tests
Mr.Picard is absolutely a knowledgeable teacher and it is splendidly amazing of how much he knows. Furthermore, although he is not an easy teacher, he is a teacher who is fair in marking. It is really a great honor to have been taught by Mr. Picard.
Very intelligent and the funniest teacher ever! You'll really enjoy his class :) Just make sure to listen and follow instructions. Be prepared to write lots of essays though haha
Full of satire, fair, and extremely knowledgeable. Gives out retests like there's no tomorrow, so there's no excuse for failing. Have fun rupturing your eardrums with his tendency to slap textbooks.
he really likes to slam books on people's desks when people
Good Teacher. Very funny and enjoyable, if u manage to get him as your socials teacher you year would be ten times more exciting.
OK teacher, seems to pick favourites (cough Nancy Lin) but otherwise is not bad
one hilarious and awesome teacher! but for his teaching.. it's pretty hard to follow and is really generous with the marks :)
He doesn't come across as the niciest guy but he is knowledgable and fair. He expects students to independent and motivated and does get upset w/ slacking once in a while. But do follow his rules!
Most interesting, shocking, and unbelievable teacher.
He is a rare teacher in that he devots time and effort into his students. Excellent, knowledgable, and considerate.
Was in Mr Picard's IB history ~20 yrs ago overseas. Challenges students to think for themselves. Passionate and knowledgeable - a great and misunderstood man. Should write a book. Thanks Mr Picard!
His teaching is good, and u can never fail his class cuz he always give u retest if u fail. However his jokes r cheezier than cheet-o's
Weird Jokes, and also say that Chicago Blackhawks are Team BC and he'll love you
I didn't understand anything he taught me, I guess it is just personal preference.. but funny? You will NEVER fail his class, always a retest
kinda shocking at first, but when u get used to him, u realize that he has a sense of humor, and for me, he taught me alot in socials, and he really is one of my fav teachers!!!!
The best teacher. "Un~~believable!" "Shocking!" "SOV~~EREIGNTY" "Everyone else was on time right ____?" He is unbelievably funny. I want him for next year, but I didn't get him. He has alot of quizzes, but not many tests. Instead of tests, you have a few in class compositions. He doesn't care about how you write it; he care more about what you write about it. There's barely any homework and assignments, and they are quite easy; he explains them carefully. His jokes aren't funny but he is funny when angry.
He's an amazing teacher! Sure his jokes aren't really funny, but at least the class is entertained.
acts kind of weird in class, and so much reading! but he was a pretty good teacher overall
very knowledgeable and helpful. just dont make noise or play with any sports equipment in front of him, for he will take it away.
He's very knowledgable about social studies.. and well.. pretty much Everything else! He makes jokes all the time that aren't funny, but thats what makes the class fun. He gives a fair amount of work - my only complaint is that he can change character so fast. One moment he's smiling.. next moment he's furious.
I'm pretty sure one of the main job descriptions of being a teacher(let alone an IB teacher) is actually teaching the class. He gives us pages upon pages of photocopied notes written at univeristy level and expects to comprehend everything. He never actually teaches us. But I guess that's IB History for you. Aside from that, he is a very very knowledgable teacher and pretty approachable.
he's freaking me out... he just blabs on and on about stuff we don't even learn until university... he hasn't clearly taught a lesson yet.
great teacher but his jokes aren't exactly funny. great notes and not much textbook work. A pretty awesome teacher that makes sure all his students pass.
He knows a lot about the things he teach, but he can be intimidating.
absolutely knowledgable in all aspects of history that he teaches. i don't understand why he's a teacher, he could easily write a history text book just off the top of his head and make money that way. can be really funny (sometimes his jokes are lame but hey, nobody's perfect) and he knows when to be strict and when to be laid back.
walking encyclopedia! picard ROCKSS, he's not that funny but props for trying, awesome teacher, hardhard tests but preps you for exams really well, goes over EVERYTHING which is always useful. gives us prepared notes, nice guy, doesn't give up on students. rock on picard :)
A really nice and helpful teachers. He is approachable, humorous and friendly. He talks a lot in class, about sports and politics. But what he talks about is often linked with what we are learning, so we are learning things without even knowing it. He's really funny in class, and he makes jokes occasionally. Some of his jokes are getting old, but the class is still amused by them. I think he is a great teacher.
he is cool but his jokes r strange he also never stops talking
really good teacher, especially if hockey and politics interest you. Hard, but one gets the sense he's actually teaching you stuff, unlike some other teachers
Great teacher, the best in my Gr.9 year... tho his tests and exams are hard, he explains everything so clearly. so it's not tha confusing.I think he's very nice and a cool teacher.
Lame jokes, but awesome teacher. Like, wow, he knows ALOT...as in uber-encyclopedic ALOT. No kidding...Talk to him bout any international historical figure or any historical date and he'll launch off into a whole story...which is right. Qualified to be much more than a high school teacher, but meh, im glad he's at Churchill :)
Love the way he teaches ^__^ And his snap snap method of teaching...a S.S teacher who doesn't make us read everything in the text book, someone who knows his stuff X-tremely well 0.0, funny, nice, kind to his students, and much more ^__^
This guy knows more about socials-related stuff than the rest of this school combined. Too much, in fact. Great teacher, too.
"I THINK I CAN CLARIFY THAT" great teacher, helpful and indepth, interestin examples used in class
he is funny and very clear on assignment, but sometimes he acts weird, he pulled up his pants in front of the class
although he is obsessed with the eurpean union he ok i guess. He might have a good joke once in a while but otherwise they're pretty lame
probably one of the only teachers in swc that explains assignments in detail. everything is set out as a standard and objectively. cheerful thoughts :)
Good guy, very clear and seems to care. His classes are lively, or boring. The detriment is kind of his lame sense of humour, but he's funny once in awhile.
very easy, very helpful, very clear. i got a A and i didnt even study any tests. Just pay attention and u be fine. Even tho i got A, still hate this guy. 555
He was a great teacher. You either get an A or B...or a C-. So, pay attention to him, and you will do well.
hes realy nice, wen u skip and he knows he doesnt do nething, funny too in a bit of a cheesy way. even though i slack off (haha slack) he still gives me a c+!
one of the coolest teachers in the school! the jokes are so lame theyre hilarious. hes awesome to talk to about hockey!!
muahahaha we know sumthing about you... by the way, we hate the way that you slam the books on the table every class
At first I think he had something against me... but now he's cool with me... very clear on what he's talking about... hate his lame jokes...
one of the better teachers i've had... he knows his stuff and WANTS you to know it!!
he's a good ss teacher, i can see that he's hard, but i'll manage. :) his jokes are cool, make the class seem more laid back.
i guess he is ok even though this is the first time i got him. he is hard. expects alot on your work.
He's really hard, even though he won't let you fail. His jokes are really corny but entertaining at the same time. Hey, at least it's better than no jokes.
too much lame jokes, i dunno wether what he says are jokes or real infos.
he's cool, but extremely hard... but he nos so much about his subject...
though he hounded me during ib, i still give him a cool rating.
He's actually easy if you study, you won't fail in his class,cuz he's wont let u
crazyy funny. cool guy. fun class. try hard in prjects, has alot of knowledge
hehe.. sings song during class.. lol.. dun sleep in his class.. haha
strict yet fun.....make sure you do your homework!!!!!
Hard, teaching method is a bit strange, but preps you well.
Very cool teacher. Prepares you well. Might seem a little strict at first.
very hard but will prepare you well. yah. he'll grill ya!
he'll grill you, and he'll grill you good. grill you like a slab of cheesse
