Alright so. Best teacher I ever had in my life hands down. He knows the material, he makes it fun, he doesn't ask too much of us and makes it understandable. But... he is so cocky. LOL. I absolutely hated him as a person.
I was lucky enough to have Mr. Bakos in sec 2 english. He is knowledgable, and he makes everything more interesting. he puts a fun twist on everything he teaches, whether its by throwing in a life lesson or relating it to a real life situation. He's hilarious, and absolutely knows what he's doing. I have to admit, the rumours about him and Vidal never fail to crack me up. In a closet? Really, guys? Anyway, he is a fantastic teacher and although he's tough at first, you leave that class smarter.
Honestly,Mr.Bakos is one of the best teachers at VMC, he is dedicated to his job and truly helps his class to have fun and you learn at the same time. Honestly his notes and his class is awesome and you'd realize that hes amazing. In the beginning of the year hell say that this will be the hardest subject but after romeo and juliet, its easy. This teacher inspires the youth to be different and he is really kind. Just be glad that you have him for English.
WOW seriously the best teacher at VMC his class is life changing and i feel like I learn more in his class by hearing his "life lectures" than a week of every other class. He'd rather not be friends with students outside of class but is constantly interacting and keeping kids involved. Best teacher by far and most enthusiastic and true to his job. I LOVE HIS TEACHING METHOD
I've taken his class twice, and have been so fortunate to have him as a teacher. He is an incredible person and his class is not only fun, but very informative. He doesn't have the most traditional teaching style, but he really is amazing. Oh and his face is kind of nice to look at.
Hes so hilarious like everyday I was laughing until I cried! He gives us a lot of examples and is a great teacher.. but sometimes he only thinks highly of his own opinions so don't try to fight with him. If you study for tests, you'll be fine! :)
Best English teacher ever. Learned so much from him... I wish I could take his class again.
One of the best teachers I ever had. He actually cares about his students. Oh and he's super hot.
Mr. Bakos has an ability to instill his passion for his subject in others. I would recommend trying to take one of his classes.
look, mr. bakos might be an amazing teacher; super clear and helpful but the man has favorites and it shows. he has his own opinions and that's great - he's entitled to them - but he doesn't have to b
Bakos was my favourite teacher! He gets so passionate in his lessons and he's super chill and funny. You really have to work for your grades but I learned a lot from him. Plus his rants are awesome xD
Wonderful person, but can be egotistical and at times inconsiderate when giving lessons...however still, a great teacher who really knows how to reach you. Grades fairly, as well. Also very fun and en
I personally like him because he's not some "robot" like teacher. Fortunately, most people see his good side more than his egotistical side. Still, a good teacher, also DO NOT get on his bad side. Tha
Doesn't like back-talkers or attitude, so dont give him any!
Mr. Bakos is the best teacher ever! He teaches not only english, but he teaches us about succeeding in life! He is a great mentor! His class is always fun! Hes so funny, it shows he really cares about
Awesome teacher!!!!! Funny and chill, the best! I've learned so much from him! His work is not that easy though, tough marker but good teacher!! -Marilyn
Best teacher! Funny, his class is awsome! I look forward to his class. Im learning soo much by him!
He's a great teacher! He's funny, and you'll never fall asleep in his class! He's fun ! - Marilyn M.
One thing about bakos, you'll learn enlgish as well has history,philosophy,politics etc. Never a dull class with him and he is always willing to help. I was never enjoyed enlgish but he changed that
this is the modern day plato socrates hippocrates aristotle and homer all combined. by attending his class, i promise, if you listen to his suggestions on how to improve writin then yu gon be amazing
There was nothing chore-like about writing for his class. His unwavering belief in his students' writing abilities is unparalleled. It was an honour to have him as a mentor.
I loved him as a person, as a teacher he was adequate. Hard marker, I personally think Ellinger is easier. I did better with Ellinger than Bakos...but Bakos is willing to help his students. He's good.
great guy and teacher, prepared me very well for cegep and i was only doing average in his class.
rants a lot : way entertaining... hard marker but prepares you well. always will to help
English with Bakos is effervescent--almost like an amalgamation of philosophy, history, sociology, and politics. He does, however, have a tendancy to favour those who possess a "natural talent."
greatest times in bacos class.....analysing his songs was an instant classic....the chill convos with bocas great teacher...funny guy hard class but entertaining
I could not understand what his expectation were. On one paper he corrects and idea, I write the next essay with his corrections in mind from the last paper and he still marks it wrong.
Adequately prepared me for CEGEP English. I was first in my class. Take that, snobby Westmounters!
i had him last year. i wish i had him this year. super interesting and entertaining. he teaches but makes it his own by throwing in personal experiences. way awesome.
great teacher, super helpful for essays and the most interesting class i've hadd in high school
If he thinks you'll write a best-seller, you're all set! Your essays could be mediocre at times but he's blinded by your future fame so he lets it slide.
He's young so he understands he can relate to the students pretty well. He does have his favorites and is a bit arrogant but he's very interesting.
Picks his favorite according to those he deems will become great novelists and include him in their acknowledgement page. Thinks he molded you. Epitome of arrogance at its peak.
Prepared me well for Intro to College English due to two years of great teaching. Thank you so much from your enriched class of '05.
He changes the way you see the world.A true inspiration. You will be thankful.
So passionate when he teaches that you can't help but want to learn.Assuages your insecurities.If you're reading this Mr. B, you're a good teacher (good in the Hemmingwayian sense)
For two years this man has imparted me with so much wisdom. I am forever indebted to him. His mandate is to produce independent thinkers & he doesn't demean students. Unforgettable
I said it for Russo, I will say it for the B: VMC may need you, but Dawson needs you even more. Please come teach here. Immediately! Lol. Will never have another English like it!
if he deflates his ego, accepts opinions that differ from his own, and starts being less naive, he will be the greatest teacher on earth.
one of the best teachers that i ever had. his english class was so interesting. i miss it so much. haven't had an english teacher that even comes close to being as good as him.
He's a VERY hard marker, he's sometimes on a high horse, i like him but i struggled in his class...he's a very hard marker
Excellent teacher. If you've had him, you can honestly say you have learned something in high school. You really look at the media differently.
I don't understand all the hype about him. I think he's an ok teacher.
Great teacher, only his biased opinions can be quite annoying at times. You will learn a lot in his english class, but his media class isn't so great.
he knows what he is talking about, could be annoying at times... but in general nice teacher and he helps his students out alot
i hope everyone at vmc gets him before they graduate. His class is the best class you will ever have.ill always remember his excellent english and media classes
To sum up, Mr. Bakos is the best! like THE best! He's the best teacher i've ever had. He's really understandable and very helpful. Sir..you're the best
In short…an inspiration. Which other high school English teacher will offer their students a thorough rundown of 20th century literature from Victorianism to Pomo (and lets not forget Hamlet), at the same time exploring different aspects of media, philoso
good teacher but at times can be bias and refuses to look at the other side of the coin, besides that hes good. media class rules
From what i hear, he's a great teacher. I wish I had him instead of Woodfine.
FABULOUS TEACHER. you go home knowing at least you didn't waste 1 of the ~5 hours spent at school. charming man!
Look, Bakos has actually inspired thought in at least some of the more brainy kids at VMC. He's one of those teachers you'll remember for a long time.
His enriched english program is by far the best of all my 5 years. Learning about literature throughout the eras was interesting...pomo being by far the best.
One of the few teachers that really cares about the students
Hard Marker, but in his class its not about the marks, its about the media, politics, and the world. After one school year, you would understand a lot of things
Mr. Bakos is an amzing teacher. He really knows what he's talking about. He covers interesting topics (pomo is so great). One of the best teachers at VMC.
Absolutely inspirational! He challenges us to think outside the box. Excellent teacher.
Extremely Good Looking ... Very Itelligent Man, Interesting Class if your into Philosophy However he is very Arrogant
He helps one become more critical and cultural, which comes in handy in CEGEP. A great asset to the staff.
Mr. Bakos like you know wtv guys..he's the best teacher going so far..he's young but he's not stupid..he has the best stories..btw his name is Stavros
Listen up! Mr. Bakos is the best teacher at VMC no matter what anyone says. He discusses different and important aspects of life...hope he stays passionate!
hes one of the best teachers i had soo far especially drama
he likes to help everyone out...although sometimes he picks favorites...hes a good teacher he makes sure that you understand...hes very smart and is pretty good
he is the best teacher i have ever had!! he is so incredibly nice 2 every one even if he duznt no them!! he is so dramatic (in a good way)!! in glad i had him!!
good teacher, a snob, and thinks too highly of himself
hey - this guy has really helped me out, as he's done for most of us. i can't thank him enough.
If your thinking of a young inspirational teacher...hes your man. He incorporates philosophy, social matters, and life itself within his english class.Love him!
his quest for intellectual superiority has blurred his vision of what the students need. he should stop cutting in line.
He's one of the best teachers I have ever had.. GO MR. B
