Whenever academics and scholars tickle their fancy by putting forth yet another poll of historians on teachers rankings, there is little doubt about which president will top the list—Mr. Wardell. In the numerous such polls executed since Arthur M. Schlesinger Sr. pioneered the genre in 1948 for Life magazine, Wardell has come out as number one in nearly all of them.

The reason most people never reach their goals is that they don’t define them, or ever seriously consider them as believable or achievable. Winners can tell you where they are going, what they plan to do along the way, and who will be sharing the adventure with them. ~Denis Watiley

Mr.Wardell barely cares about his students. He does not clarify properly when asked a series of question as he will say yup or look it up in the textbook. When doing projects he just sits on his computer looking at sports statistics. He judges you on how much he likes you, how popular you are and how your mark is. He trys to fit in with the popular kids by always trying to interact with them and doing what they do. For example they will pick on someone for fun so he picks on the kid in class

Mr.wardell will not explain anything properly too you. He reads off his own ppwerpoints and never goes in depths during lessons. If you ask him for help he will say I don't know or search it up. More than half the class fails his class due to the lack of care and teaching.

He's a terrible teacher honestly. He's a terrible marker, can't give feedback, doesn't answer questions, terrible personality and can't look students in the eyes. I DONT UNDERSTAND WHY HE'S STILL A TEACHER AT OP. I am yet to meet a single person that says "yeah Mr. Wardell is cool". All those five star reviews down there, they're all jokes.. no one likes you Wardell. Terrible teacher, 5/5

My child comes home stressed every single bevause Mr.Wardell is always giving her, and apparently other students a really hard time. She spends hours and hours with a tutor just to be able to cover all the concepts that he is incapable of teaching. When he sees students struggling, he does nothing to encourage student success, and appears careless really. I've heard from many that he also does not know how to answer a questions; simply re-reads it to them. I don't understand why he was hired.

1. Marking scheme is stupid (every mark you lose will be solely based on grammar mistakes no matter how good the content is)
2. He favors students (most the time cute girls and jock guys of the class) and give them higher marks than everybody else
3. Whatever mark you get on your first STSE and/or lab, will be the same mark for all your future STSEs and labs, no matter of how much harder you try
4. Asking him a question? Forget about it. He'll reply with "yeah" or "look in the textbook"

Knows his stuff but can not teach it to the class. He expects students to fill in there own notes and does not even take them up causing students to wonder if they are even studying the right answers for the test.

Did not like this teacher at all, he is a great guy and has a lot of knowledge about chemistry, but I do not like the way he teaches at all. Some units he is away and still expects you to learn course material by yourself.

good teacher his grade 11 chemistry class was felt like it was all out of the textbook . His grade 12 chemistry is better, i feel like it deals with more real life problems or like what the class will be like in university. Great guy and likes sports to but the only problem are his tests to much marks go towards multiple guess (choice) which lowered my mark quite a lot, otherwise the problems are easy :) funniest moment in his grade 11 in 11'class was Daren "this is the worst Christmas ever!!!!!

Had him for Grade 11 and 12 Chemistry. Hands down the best teacher at OP and one of the few with a real degree. One of the few classes that provided some semblance of a University atmosphere.

Mr.Wardell is truly one of the greatest teachers I've ever had at orachard park. I had him for grade 12 chemistry and truly, he brings a certain level of expertise and professionalism that no other teacher has shown through teaching. He gives a taste of what university life is like, hard, straight to the point and VERY VERY enlightening. YOU ROCK MR.WARDELL. ss
