Mr.Falkenberg has the most easygoing, engaging, and relaxing classes. I thoroughly enjoyed his classes and got through with a sky high mark which I don't feel I deserve. A high 90 in Mr.Falkenberg's class would be equivalent to a mid 80 in some another teacher's class which I gives some students an utter, unfair advantage. However, he sometimes takes off marks where he has no justification. I just wish he could give some constructive feedback on my essays so I can improve in the future.

He's one of the best teachers at Bayview, he genuinely cares for his students and truly want them to succeed. I don't think I've ever had another teacher as understanding and encouraging as him. He's also very knowledgeable and he teaches in a laid back style kind of like he's having a conversation with the class. Makes me actually want to listen and makes class more interesting.

LISTEN UP KIDS. If you get Mr Falkenberg as your teacher i highly recommend you pray to your god, whatever you believe in, because you have just been blessed. Mr Falkenberg is by far, the best teacher in Bayview. He is amazing; words don't describe him as a teacher or as a person. I owe my life and alot of my personal success to him, inside and outside the classroom. He's the kinda teacher that makes an impact on you, perhaps even changing your life. He's the kinda teacher you dream of having.

I had this teacher for summer school and i have to say...IT WAS THE BEST EXPERIENCE I HAVE EVER HAD IN ENGLISH. I have never before met a teacher so kind, funny, and downright fabulous in the way he taught english. I think taking summer school was the best decision i have ever made; if I hadnt, i would never have had Mr. Falkenberg as my teacher. i AM INCREDIBLY DEVASTATED that he doesnt teach at my school. Emily Carr SS needs this man.
