I can't imagine a better teacher for ToK. He's engaging and thoughtful, and has added so much more to my love of philosophy. Extremely lucky to have a teacher so sympathetic and understanding. Love you and your course to bits, Capier :)

Whether he is whining about how much money he gets paid and how hard his job is, or teaching the more biased history class in the world or talking about his weird christian band... his class is the worst.
I had him for History 12 in 2014. He tried to warp the way students thought about history. It wasn't until University i reeeeally regretted taking his class.
DO NOT TAKE HIS CLASS

I had him for TOK. He is very condescending. If you have ideas against his, then he rejects yours no matter what. He thinks he is always right and he seems to pretend as if he knows about the world. I don't really like the way he treats students. He wears this same blue blazer.

Nice, but his tests are SHORT ANSWER ONLY, no multiple choice. The tests are extreamly hard and his class average is extreamly low.

If you ever want an intro to Philosophy with an amazing teacher, do yourself a favour and take Mr. Capier's Philosophy 12 class. Mr. Capier is always willing to help and is very supporting of his students (he'll nag you about that bass you keep saying you will build though). The only way I have seen to actually have a problem with Mr. Capier and his class is to have not handed in a single assignment.

Mr. Capier is a supportive caring teacher that will be very helpful you if you try. The only critic I would have is that he sometimes plays favourites.

In all Spencer Capier is a childish person who believes that he is a philosopher but instead he is just a confused man who does not even understand himself. The reason he teaches is not to help others learn it is to make himself feel like he has power. Instead of teaching real theory of knowledge he instead talks about subjects and starts discussions in order to entertain himself. If you have the choice do not take his course for he is a little man who does not understand real teaching.
