I'll always have mixed feelings about Tim. Having taken 2 choir courses and 2 philosophy courses, I can say that I didn't learn anything about philosophy or learn how to sing. However, sitting and listening to his life stories and lessons he learnt was definitely the highlight of my day. I never dreaded going to his class.
I just wish Tim got to know all of his students. I know he always says we have to come speak to him, but some of us are just shy.

Intro to logic and reason is by far the easiest class ive ever taken, you show up ever class and talk and know what youre talking about and you get an A, but I learned almost nothing the entire year. If you want to have fun, dont ever straight up disagree with him, branch from his thinking a bit, but even when he's wrong or says something and then says the exact opposite the next class(happened about 7-10 times my class) dont point it out or he'll through you directly under the bus

He's a great teacher, and gives great advice. I had some troubles and he gave me some advice that really helped. His choir class is really chill. If you ever get him for philosophy, just remember to ask questions or contribute in class and it'll be a mark booster. :D

No one else will open your mind, help you see things from a more unique and realistic perspective, or force you out of your comfort zone quite as much as Tim, all things that I'll always be grateful for. Don't expect to learn any testable knowledge or facts, but if you're willing to make an effort, you'll come away from his clases more adventurous, thoughtful, with a more open mind and the ability to either singing, play guitar, or watch movies well. I liked the movies and singing most :)

Tim is probably one of the most truthful teachers at the school, if not slightly opinionated. I aspire to be able to throw shade as well as he does when I'm his age. Tips for choir... In his class, you either do things his way, or don't do it at all.

He's one of the best teachers I've ever met at DT. I learned how to sing in front of everyone, play the guitar, and some philosophy from him. I can't thank him enough for what he's done for me and I really, really hope he'll be around for the long run. His blunt personality makes the best out of every situation. Just saying that he is by far one of the best teacher at DT. =)

Tim isnt just the best teacher Ive ever had, he's also the most interesting individual Ive ever come across. He knows what we REALLY need to be taught, and if it was possible, I would love it if he could teach every single one of my subjects. He understands how to get peoples interest (at least those who care) and has a lot of knowledge and life experience to offer people in his classes. Be sure to pay attention and you'll actually learn worthwhile life lessons, unlike the rest of highschool.

Mr. Tim (trombone star) Skeldon is a first-rate, if somewhat difficult, teacher/music instructor. In his early music career, around the time period that Tim played lead trombone in the world-famous North Vancouver Youth Band, he was considered by most to be a major talent who would go on in life to do great and wonderful things (according to my sources). Accompanying his tremendous musical ability is a demand to his pupils for nothing less than excellence. DT students should be proud to...
