I could not have asked for a better teacher in my life than Dennis Begin. He was exceptionally tough but that made me study harder so I would always get answers right in his class. He was exceptionally knowledgeable. It was his teaching that made me change the course of my studies. It is because of him that I chose to major in History at UBC and following that I got a degree in Law. He was a gift to Richmond!!!!
He's a ridiculously harsh teacher, but he knows his history. He is definitely opinionated and will resort to profanity and foul comments.
get well soon mr.begin, we all miss u very much. dudes look beyond the surface, mr.begin seems to dictate so the class wuld actually pay attention. he's the best history teacher.
He works very hard for his students. He knows so much history and makes the classes very interesting. It was a pleasure to be in his class.
Total bs, he knows nothing about history. Many of the things he teaches are downright incorrect, and he teaches with a huge and obvious bias against leftists.
Begin although looks scary first time you see him, he is experienced and very responsible teacher. He knows how to make history classes interesting.
bégin is definitely one of the best teachers i have at rhs. he really prepares you for ib exams and provincials.
Prepares you for university professors. Not nice but if you learn your material, he will like you.
I loved History until this man! Our class started with 25 students and ended up with 9. Any teacher that calls a student stupid should be fired on the spot!
I found him very unhelpful, and he did not prepare me well for my exams bith IB and provincial
Overall, his not a bad teacher, but just that he is a bit harsh on the students
he's a wake up call from reality for those of us 12s going into uni
