Impossible to not like him. The best teacher I have ever had. He makes class fun and enjoyable and talks about his life and sometimes reads stories. Also, he brings out the guitar to play and sing when he teaches about the Industrial Revolution. His tests are easy if you prepared, and plus, he gives bonuses that you can finish at home! If you are bad at writing essays in class, it may pull your grade down.
Probably the best teacher I have ever met. Really grabs you into the subject and makes the course interesting. He's also super humble and intellectual, will be more than glad to help you and answer your questions. It's sad that he's retiring next year but Im so glad I have him this year for social studies (:
Mr Martin is my favourite teacher at Churchill. Super helpful, super kind, super funny. Trusts his students to make good choices and always tries to be understanding (he knows why we don't necessarily always do homework and tries to accommodate us). He makes me interested in whatever he's teaching because he's so passionate. Definitely the best teacher I've ever had. (HE TELLS REALLY COOL AND FUNNY JOKES IN CLASS)
he's the kind of teacher that knows how to teach and make class enjoyable.
so much better than kirmis whenever i have a question about geo i ask martin even if kirmis is my teacher LOL
so sad he is retiring next year :(
Really funny! One of my favourites!
great teacher, easy going for pretty much everything except your marks. you can have a chill class but remember to learn your material thoroughly for your tests. ace your tests and you'll be fine. he's not biased, no favoritism, really nice guy. for ib geo kids: memorize lots of stats for his tests and know examples and concepts well.
:) mr martin is a very good teacher and very funny. awesome stories and fun times in his class. it is a hard class but she makes it enjoyable
If you can stand his repetition of (hilarious) jokes, he is a great teacher. He does give hard assignments, but he will help you as much as he can, and he really knows his stuff.
Nice, funny, and veeery interesting! A very thoughtful teacher and doesn't make the students all stressed out
Mr Martin is the best. He's so understanding and kind and he makes the most hilarious jokes in class. Geo is my favourite subject now because of him.
Nice, funny, and veeery interesting! A very thoughtful teacher and doesn't make the students all stressed out.
I was in his class for two years. Mr Martin is patient, caring, knowledgeable, and very nice, but not to a fault. This man is a true role model for everyone, except for thugs and goons I suppose.
sooo caring, hilarious stories, intersting classes and super knowledgeable... made geo my favorite subject!
Finished pre-ib socials with him. Possibly THE best teacher I'll ever have. He's great; never lets anyone fail and tries to help those who are struggling. Amazing person.
A great teacher! I had him for Skills 8 and Skills 12. A fitting way to close out high school. He was very understanding too cuz of my many absences due to personal matters.
A very good man, not just as a teacher/mentor, but a great man in general. Very sociable, a good singer, a good joker, and very kind. He's extremely helpful, and passionate about his job. Geo may sound like a bore, but heck this teacher makes it all worth it. A great guy, truly an icon for all teachers to follow
He's one of the best teachers I've ever had. He's extremely patient and kind. You can ask him just about anything, even if it's not related to the subject. He makes the class interesting too by telling us stories/jokes. He's quite a reasonable marker!
He's the absolutely awesomeset teacher I've ever had. I've always hated social studies, but he made it fun and always had essay tests, which were good because instead of forcing you to go home and memorize all the boring facts, he somehow allows you to remember everything clearly without realizing it. AWESOME!!
I owe my IB marks to him! He is a hard marker, but its because he wants you to do well! He will spend a long time until you understand, and if you still don't after a while with Mr.Martin, go home, sleep, and you will understand! He's one of the few teachers that I still remember details from the things he teaches. I still laugh and remember his jokes. EVERYONE RUSH TO GET IN HIS CLASS!
great teacher! i love his jokes!! hes very knowlegeable too. though, actually, his teaching style is a little messy.
he is one of my favourite teachers! He explains things to you when you ask him questions. He tells cute and funny stories as well.
mr martin is a great teacher!! he tells jokes that are related to what he's teaching, so that its just enough to make things interesting. oh and he actually TEACHES, as opposed to mr olson.
my favourite teacher of all time. has all the attributes a perfect teacher shud have. i had him for one yr, and now i cant stop complaining about other teachers. workload and easiness are the only problems, but his projects do prepare u well for the future. if u think u can handle, try all u can to get into his class. im not exaggerating, preib ss 10 was the best memory of all these yrs of my education.
Mr. Martin is a fantastic teacher who genuinely wants his students to do well. A great guy, who makes his classes interesting with his jokes and funny stories. Really nice and fun. Kind of a hard marker, but it's reasonable. Overall, the best socials teacher you could possibly have.
Awesome teacher! Very understanding and quite easy, although you actually learn stuff in his class=), do all your assignments and study a bit before the test and youre bound to do well.
one of the my favourite teachers. he's easy to approach, funny and is amazing at crosswords. he's been teaching long enough to be good at his subject and teaches it well. his marking can be hard but it's fair and even I find, however, he can be tricked (has happened by some asshles). he works hard too.
He has a sense of humour and teaches well. My only complaint would be his handwriting.
WHO COULD ASK FOR A BETTER SOCIALS TEACHER THAN MR. MARTIN???
Isn't her the one with a cabin on Keats island? If I know who I'm talking about, then yeah hes really nice. haven't had him as a teacher but seems good
great geography teacher. he's the guy to talk to if you want to know anything about glaciation. prepares you to the best of his ability for the IB exams.
my favorite teacher over the years.. wat more can be said? lolz just one more thing, he's pretty hard at times
friendly, funny, and a great teacher, doesnt mind the noise, and is very patient. Too bad i might transfer out of his class...
Martin rocked my socks with those sun glasses and his guitar. XD
best teacher! the funniest stories and jokes, and inserts wit whenever possible
he's really nice, and he's knows how to teach! really cool.
He is absolute the coolest teacher EVER. I slept and talked in his class and still got a good makr because he exaplains everything so well.
I think he is a pretty good teacher, despite the fact that he marks so hard...And another interesting thing about him, his handwriting >.< Oh~~~
he's a good teacher la~ got him for two yrs~ lub him~ haven't see him for a LONG time already though... @@''
easy... no.. not for IB course (most ppl get ~60% raw) but scale afterward. Nice teacher to have
nice nice !!!!! just so nice....^^ caring and responsible.
He is a good teacher, but ONLY if he doesn't talk when we are taking notes, that would be perfect, some people just can't multitask!!!!
he explains things reali well, and treats his students reali nicely, cool jokes too ^^
sometimes, no one reads his writing nor understands his language.... but anyways, a joke per class kept me awake!!! yay!!!
This guy is very helpful in explaining Geography IB. Great guy, but homework every class, and projects.
I JUST LOVE THIS TEACHER!!!! DONT KNOW HOW TO SAY IT IN ANOTHER WAY! SIMPLY THE GREATEST TEACHER!!!
Really nice!! Funny guy, good teacher, class is boring, but not his fault. Great teacher!
Great Teacher, funny, cool, easy, got to love the jokes!!! AHHH!!! MAPS!!!
happy and helpful to students. didnt yell at me for sleeping in class while he was reading the Bliss documents (can't blame him for that)last year.
Cool Teacher~! Most responsible teacher I eva had...
^^ ah he's so funny and i've learned so much from him
he is very funny, hilarious and gives out a lot of jokes and skills-thinking Q.
Funny, goes off topic every 5 seconds.... but we actually learn more that way...
Cool teach, first one I've met with a good sense of humor. talks 2 fast sumtimes
REALLY nice&funny. keeps SS interesting. essays=hard, tests=ok (if you study)
A fabulous teacher! loves the outdoors too and very easy-going
