Never ever hands anything back and doesnt give you an idea of what your marks are like when going into the exam. Never talks about anything relevant to English and talks about inappropriate things quite a bit. Would recommend switching out of his class
He never hands anything back and you don't know how you are doing. He is very unfair.
Nice teacher, kind guy. Only thing that I thought wan't very good was that assignments were either handed out way after or not at all, which made it difficult to figure out what needed improvement.
He's not a bad teacher if you're in a senior grade but for grade 10 he doesn't give any feedback and when he does its vague. He still hasn't handed back our essays/ every other thing we've handed in from 3 months ago!! He says inappropriate things and he doesn't stop talking... Ever.
I agree with the other answers. Talks for LITERALLY the entire class about anything but what we're actually studying. Picks favourites. Makes inappropriate jokes. Brags about his son 24/7. I didn't learn anything from this class. He told us to write responses and paragraphs ect. but didn't tell us a single thing about how to do them. I learned more english from my history teacher.
Talks way too much, the entire class consists of him talking about himself and his life. It's understandable to a certain degree, but when it becomes egotistical then that's too far. When giving out an essay he provides no information whatsoever and students are left confused. Not a great experience so far.
Mr.Burgess is an extremely helpful, knowledgeable English teacher. His methods are a little unorthodox, but that makes learning much more interesting. He is a kind teacher with many anecdotal stories
Mr. Burgess is awesome! he always has something interesting and relevant to say. He made English class better than ever! Thanks B :D
I love Burgess. Hes so smart that i actually learned about english!!
You are needing to not talk aboutyour son so much in class and start talkin about what we are needing to work on!
Okay, so maybe now I run in the opposite direction when I see him coming, but when you have him twice (three times, once) in a day... can you blame me?
Has great writing ability. Tends to talk about himself and his work quite often. Doesn't stick to the course outline, and takes forever to hand things back. BUT very smart and helpful!
He did so not tell us the project was worth 10% of our mark! A pompus, phoney, show off. Your writing is impressive, but it wouldn't hurt if you talked a bit less during class.
Worst teacher ever. I have spent over two months in has class and havn't receieved any work back. Stop talking about how artsy and cultured you are and HAND BACK SOME FREAKING WORK
mr. burgess means well, and cares very much about his students. but an artsy intellectual like him is just so out of place at this school, friction naturally results.
He's super. He lets the class have imput and participate a lot which is always great. I hope I have him next year!
You're smart, there's no doubt about that. But seriously, get over yourself. Try teaching instead of bragging about how smart you are.
Mr. Burgess is one of the best teachers I have had!!!
Meh, he's alrite. Gets a bit too excited about his little stories and opinions though.
