Mr.White got kicked out of the school board not because he was too tough on students, he was unprofessional as a teacher. I attended his night math programs in the past, and I didn't like the way he talked to students presenting on board sometimes. He's said this pretty often "that's a stupid way to write that". For students he doesn't like, he might tell them they have no potential. Getting complaints that you're a hard teacher doesn't get you fired.
Vely gud @ math. But Y MUST U THROW CHALK?!
Very good teacher and very helpful
The man. The myth. Now the Legend. He's the one who developed the Enriched program, the All Night Dance and Children's Christmas Party. He may seem intimidating, but he's here to push students to their fullest potential. He will get you to work hard, and believe me it will pay off for you. #BringBackWhite
Hope he teaches for as long as he can, and that he retires a proud man. He deserves it for all that he's done for his students.
I wish Mr. White a very good health and live a long life!
Mr.White, although he can be very intimidating, makes you really interested in math.
He is a good man and teaches very well to students. I learned a lot through his classes.153
I was a student of his in the early 90s. I barely remember most of my teachers, but Bruce White is still with me today. There are often times I think back and have a chuckle about my time with him. Not because he was funny, but because he was so passionate. He is one of the few things I miss about being a teenager.
I graduated from Massey in 2004, the same year he "retired." I had him for both Algebra & Geometry and Calculus. He was tough and it was hard work and I loved every minute of it. I don't know how he did it - but he makes you strive in a way you never did before. His tests were so long, but that just taught you to attack it like a boxing match or something. I actually got so pumped on test days. He changed my whole self-perception. I've never seen him since, but he's a huge influence in my life.
Fantastic teacher. Incredibly knowledgeable and a role model for teachers. He teaches topics that are no longer in the curriculum in depth. He pushes everyone to do well and advance regardless of how much they protest their own learning(you often see people complain that something is too hard and asking him to slow down but he pushes them none the less). He probably hated me as a student because I was so lazy ;P but I still think he was a brilliant teacher and appreciate all he's done.
Really god at teaching though he can be intimidating at first
This man taught me over 30 years ago. I attribute much of my professional success to that experience. I haven't performed "hard core" math in over 25 years, but the lessons in attacking, breaking down and solving a problem, are used daily.
Most of all, I learned that, if pushed, I could reach heights I'd never imagined (for a messed up teen with a difficult home life, this was big).
Mediocrity is not an option in his classroom. And there was no need. Even the weakest students excelled.
Went to night math in gr 9 a few years ago taught by him. He definitely knows his stuff, but expects a lot from his students! He's a tough and intimidating teacher (I stopped going to night math because it wasn't my thing LOL) but he really makes you appreciate the beauty of math. He explains concepts in the way that only people who have an immense knowledge in the subject can; it's really clear after. I hope he continues teaching because it really is a privilege.
Windsor/Essex County School board, please don't spoil our kids education. Mr. White is a big asset to our community. He provided an outstanding contribution to our kids Math education. Don't go for few parents/kids who do not like the way he teaches. In this country there are lot of options, whoever do not like him, please just let them know to find a different Math teacher. We hope you will make a good decision and bring Mr. White back to Massey.
Hope you will have a good decision soon.
Mr.White is a strict teacher who will push you forward.
Mr. White is a brilliant math-teacher of kids I have ever met in my entire life. He is so dedicated and have worked so hard to promote math education at high school. Massey school would be down-graded to below-average without Mr. White's contribution. You can never find a math teacher like Mr. White in the whole country ever again. It is not too late to bring him back now. Think about our kids' future, our community and level of our education, not only yourself!
Mr. White is the best math teacher in Canada and many of his students are graduates of the world top universities, i.e Harvard, Yale, Princeton, MIT, Stanford, Cornell, Toronto, Oxford, Cambridge
I wish my child have a great teacher who like Mr. White to do in Vincent Massey Secondary School.
I think Mr. White is one of the best math teachers in Canada (if you could find more).
I am a mother of student who attended the Sunday math class of Mr. White for a few years. As far as I remember, Mr. White is a friendly, nice to everyone and sharp-minded person who dedicated himself to math-education in our community for so many years. I dont understand why someone are so malicious to bring him down and tried to eliminate the chances for our math learning.
I am the parent of a student of Vincent Massey Secondary School that has been highly influenced by Mr. Bruce White. I speak on the behalf of many parents that Bruce White is the predominant reason why my daughter attends Massey. He has a reputation for developing strong math students to ensure of their future success.
Mr. Bruce White is a great teacher! We respect to him.
My son is a current students of Mr. White. Actually my daughter, even though in Just Grade 6, is also his students. They like him, and feel to be very lick to have Mr. White around here in Windsor.
I just came back from the University of Waterloo for my son's graduation ceremony. My son was one Mr. White's students at Massey and he now has major in math. He told me that he has been succesful because of Mr. White and that the students of Mr. White at the University of Waterloo has a much easier time learning the courses than everyone else. This is because of Mr. White's superior teaching skills.
Mr. White is a great teacher. Though he is a very strict teacher, the outcomes of his teachings has been very successful with all of his students. He has helped me to reach my potential even at a young age and has even helped my brother succeed in his career. His passion for mathematics is very strong and he is still helping students even after retirement and I think that is very inspirational. Mr. White is also known all across North America and we are very lucky to have him as our teacher.
he is the person Windsor and Massey should be proud of, grateful. He is much better teacher than any one in the board who mostly just worry about his good paid position. He pushed my son in learning math that is benifited to his whole lift. I own him and you all too!
Mr. White is a great teacher, nice teacher teacher; Students have learned is not Math only only, they learned problem solving.
I respect him. Hope board can have contract with him for the math program. Thanks.
I've seen my daughter's increasing interest in Math since taught by Mr. White. Extrordinary Teacher!!!
My son has told to me that the most important lessons that Bruce White taught me was applicable to all subjects in addition to Math. He not only taught him Math, but also benefit the whole life. Develop physical and mental toughness. Know what you know. Do what you believe is right so that you have no regrets.
Excellent teacher! Was and will be asset to our community!
My daughter in Mr. White 's Sunday Club. Mr. White made all partents' life easier. i don't know what i can do to help my daughter's math without bring Mr. white to sunday math club. please let him continue teaching, we all love him , he is the best teacher and he is very competent for his job. the student who compliants him does not know him . once he knows him , he should regreat. this school board is damaging our children's future.
Mr. White was the math teacher for my son at Vincent Massey where my son had fully exploited his math talent that promote him in both academic and career development. Without him, my son would not be the same.
In my opinion of education, a good teacher is the one who gives students a chance for advancing their specialities instaed of teaching 1+1=2.
This teacher knows math, Windsor is very lucky to have him as a teacher. please bring him back. Vincent massey secondary school & school board are making a big mistake to our community.
Mr. White is a great teacher. Many students come to Massey for his math programs. Please bring back our teacher.
He has never taught me but everyone says he is great!! BRING BACK MR WHITE!!
He was awesome but why did he have to get fired!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Good Math teacher... good to have a Math teacher like him in Canada. Very few Math teachers know what they are talking about... I would say Mr. White is one of them.
The Best Teacher! He taught math, but also was the best motivator I know. He pushed us to do better even if we did not think we could:)
Most incredible, dedicated man I know. He cares so much for the students and even puts his own money into the math program at Massey. Selfless, and downright amazing.
My daughter has been in Mr. White's Sunday class since 2009. She has learnt a lot of math knowledge from Mr. White and been happy in the class.
he is okey. He teaches good stuff that can be helpful
The best math teacher I ever had... I really enjoyed night math with you sir!!! VERY knowledgeable, able to solve any math question, extremely dedicated, and funny!
He was one of the most knowledgeable teachers I have ever had. He really knows his stuff
He is okay i guess but really strict at times lololololololol
Great teacher, really gets you to think nicely about math.
nothing he does makes sense. he loves the night math kids. and when he explains things he explains them using stuff i dont know.
sir as respected as you are when it comes to math, you need to realize that life is not made of math, living life deals with much much more such as emotions, and seeking the beauty in things. Have a little fun with your students sir (: maybe it'll make math fun for them too and not something that theyre painfully forced into doing
He taught me more math in half a year then i learned in my whole life, great teacher
Greatest teacher you could ever hope to have. Changed the course of my life.
My brother went to Massey, so did I. He had White back in '92, i had him '03. I think he loves math too much to retire from it. I'm still bitter he didn't give me a 90 in calculus.
mr white i miss you! you are what makes massey what it is. :) even though you're tough when it comes to math, we gradually realize the importance of learning! thank youuu
i'm beginning to dislike you now.math is killing my self-esteem and i think its all because of you, mr.ing and Sunday math. No matter how hard i work u and Ing make me feel like i will always be dirt.
Wow, I feel his problem based learning techniques are way superior to other teaching methods I've been through. Mr. White FTW!!!
He single-handedly moulded Massey math into one of the most competitive math schools in the country. He is LEGENDARY.
You're a nice teacher Mr. White... but you seem to think I'm an idiot. =( I'm not that worried though; I'm going to prove u wrong! i wonder when sunday math will start again...=S
The most rated teacher in Massey, who would've guessed... xD. You don't scare me, sir!
Best Teacher I ever had, did very in University Calculus - BECAUSE OF YOU, THANKS MR. WHITE!
I see Mr. White as a very typical old man. Very cranky, knowledgable, and he tends to pick on a lot of students. It's quite funny, that's why you're a pretty cool guy. "Is it clear or not?" YES SIR!
Our genius of the "GREAT WHITE NORTH". How honoured we are to have you in our midst! You make all of your fellow math teachers better. Doing an excellent job as dept head. Keep up the good work!!
i think mr. white is a really good person. he cares so much for massey and even tho he retired, he's still doing all of these things for us. mr. white deserves a loud applause. *applauds*
Mr.White and 2 other teachers are the only helpful teachers in all of Massey, all the rest are useless
Mr. White you scare me, but you make math interesting....great teacher
Mr. White is the greatest teacher I've ever had. Or ever will have I'm sure.
Theoretically retired, White lingers on. I truly believe he is a robot, with laser eyes, who teaches math because it's the only logical thing to say. Intimidating, but teaches well
He retired, and STILL IS the most popular teacher here. Sir, you really know your stuff!
We should do carml and arml more often, it was so fun!
Learned soo much from him. Wish there wasn't a retiring age limit. :)
A very good teacher, not always easy to understand (or, in night math, hear), and extremely callenging. He may technically be retired, but he's not really retired.
A nice guy and everything, but you will not benefit at all from his method of teaching unless you are a math genius going into the class.
Very Smart---but I had Dr. Gould in Uni, and your styles contradicted eachother---I did poorly bc of this. Should of done more Integrals-the triangle stuff.
i gotta agree with the other guy, uni is sooo much easier, everything he taught makes more sense. whity, you should come be my prof hehehe
a + b = c = 1 + 1 = 3 How about no? BAH. I AM RIGHT. No you aren't. ANYWAY. I believer. Mister White c'est coole. GO MEISTER WHITE!
"ppl always tell me that my tests are so long u don't have time to think, and my response to this always is: my tests are so long u dont have time not to think"
omigod im breezing through univ. calculus because i worked so hard in oac calculus. univ calc is my easiest and best course thanks to this teacher!! thanks!!!
wow. math class is great now. i actually understand MATH and not ARITHMETIC
funny but scares me alittle with the slamming of the meter sticks and chalk throwing, whistle blowing....ow
best math teacher ever.he actually cares about his students.he runs a tough class but you gotta love the way he curves his tests.he is always around for help.
Pretend you like math DO SOME WORK!!! Is that clear? Whose is this? Pretend you went to grade 10 and passed That's not math, that's arithmetic
You're such an awesome teacher! Please don't retire until I graduate!!! I have to have you as my math teacher for my last 2 years!!
Mr. White is the best math teacher ! Even though i graduated last year, I still
