Ive had Lepore for 3 out of my 4 years in the socials department and he is simply amazing. He has made me love history and knows a lot about what he is talking about. He is a great teacher and always has time for you if your willing to put in work. Very reasonable and a very nice man
If there is one word to describe Ben Lepore, it would be 'legendary'. This man is a genius. He knows History like the back of his hand, passionate about his subjects and has such a dry sense of humour. I looked forward to his class every day, and highly recommend both Socials and History with him. He may pick on you, but truly it was in the best of intentions, and made the class that much better being the centre of attention. #TeamLepore all the way!!!
Benny is the best teacher at Riverside Secondary. I had him for Socials 11 and now I have him for History 12. He teaches you in a very engaging way, and if you listen in class, there is almost no need to study for the tests. His projects do count for 70% of the grade and they're not the easiest. But, if you follow everything he says, you'll be great!
The most amazing teacher (along with Ms Chin because she'll murder me if I don't mention her--please send help) at Riverside. Is extremely knowledgeable in History and makes classes engaging and fun. He jokes around a lot, especially when it concerns the French. He will really prepare you for University courses. You will have to put in lots of work and time for History 12, but it's worth it.
Leopore is an amazing teacher. He is really funny and good at teaching. I have him for Socials 11 and I hope I get him again for History 12.
I had him in grade 9 and absolutely loved that class. For me, at the start I didn't really grasp his teaching method, but after the first unit I loved it and I hope to be in his class again. Very logical, and does everything in his power to help his students succeed.
Mr. Lepore is probably the best and most efficient teacher at Riverside.
An awesome teacher. I really loved his class, and history was fun to learn about. I learned a lot throughout his class, although the document questions of the exams were a bit of a pain sometimes. He even gave us goodbye cards at the end of the year. An overall truly caring teacher.
Lepore is without a doubt the best teacher at Riverside. He is passionate about the material and does a great job of teaching. He puts a lot of focus on interpreting and understanding history rather than simple fact recollection, which is great preparation for post-secondary. He has a great sense of humour and loves to joke around (provided he's not in a bad mood haha). Be warned that History with Lepore is not easy, but you will get more out of it than any other class at RSide.
Lepore is an awesome teacher. His lessons are informative and use many different kinds of media to keep it interesting. Tests and projects aren't easy, but he teaches you everything you need to know. He has a great sense of humour and is very helpful if you have any questions. Some days he may have a temper, so just make sure he's in a good mood before cracking any jokes. However, most of the time, his class is a fun
I always loved history, nonetheless the teachers I had before Lepore ruined the subject of history for me. That is where Mr. Lepore comes in, he inspired me again to take History one more time and now thanks to him I'm completing my Bachelors in History, Humanities and International Studies. He was the best teacher I ever had, even though he is strict.
Brilliant man. It was a privilege to be in his class room and I strongly recommend taking any opportunity to be taught by him.
Before I had Lepore, I was failing socials. He helps me understand the curriculum.
Best teacher ever! I used to hate socials, now it's my favourite subject. Smart, nice, and funny.
Honestly, his class is not difficult, he gives out barely any homework, the only difficult thing is his tests, which have a lot on it, but that's no problem because of his teaching style. His way of t
Mr lepore is overall the best socials teacher ive ever had i learned so much. even though i got a terrible mark, i cannot explain how much he has taught me.
he expects allot from his students, but that's justifiable because he makes it so damn easy to learn
Mr Lepore makes History worth going to. Best teacher I've had so far !
One of the few teachers I have seen that really showed they care about your learning. Of course, he won't press anything on you. Don't want to learn? He'll tell you to get out of class. Best teacher.
Mr.Lepore was the best teacher I've ever had. His class pushed us to be better, more critical thinkers. Lepore has a degree of compassion for his students that I rarely see.
Lepore inspires his students. Everyone develops &shares their opinion. The class ends up learning from eachother. Lepore understands how to educate vs. dictate &he's HALARIOUS. One of the very best <3
One of the most dedicated and intelligent teachers I've come across. Mr.Lepore made History an enjoyable and insightful experience.
Mr. Lepore is one of my favoriate teachers ever! I never used to like History but I love it now. His enthusiasm helps so much and the class in general is just great. He is hard marker though.
Mr. Lepore is awesome! He really knows his information and makes history fun! Lots of hand outs but all interesting, i learnt a lot from him hard but fair. And he brings cookies every friday! and buys pizza for tutorials, it just shows the kind of person he is... giving... Teachers should take note.!!
hahaha, never heard him say Benny before... If I took history under another teacher, I would not like it. He is passionate about teaching, knows his stuff, and is loads of fun to learn from!
Mr. Lepore is able to teach effectively while still being able to treat his students as equals. I totally appreciated his generosity and understanding to do with extra-curricular events and activities. If you want to learn in his class, you will.
I've never learned so much in my life, yet it has been a great experience. This guy knows what he's talking about!
people used to complain about what a hard marker he was, but he really prepared us for university courses. mr lepore is a great person and a great teacher.
Mr. Lepore. A WONDERFUL teacher. Interesting personality. Sence of Humour. Close to his students. A Class you can look forward to. I know i Do. we <3 Mr. Lepore
Socials 9 & 10 with him and hes really awesome. He knows how to have a good time, teach you what you need to know & keep you organized all at once. He's incredible.
I had Mr. Lepore back when I was in grade 9. He was a great teacher. Seeing as he gave us the test before the actual test, it was hard to not to do well.
best teacher i've ever had. LOVES his jobs, CARES about his students. is so passionate. you have to have respect for this guy. difficult work, but motivates you to work hard!
Had him for History 12, and I can only say that there is no one more skilled than he is.
EXTREMELY organized! Interesting, informative lectures. Really cares. Tells you possible test questions. Brings in cookies and juice. Fair. Great teacher!
i remember mr lepore, he is one of the coolest teachers very helpful. He gives out study guides that are almost exactly like the tests
hes really hard and has high standards for his students and himself but overall hes i great teacher
This man really knows his history. He passes it onto his students and backs it up with a test the provincials could learn from!
Dedicated to his job and students. Passionate about what he teaches
