Mr. Fortier is the best teacher that I have ever had. He treats me like his own son. His attitude and patience towards made me get a high Geography mark. It will be a great shame when he retires in a few years time. Be delighted if you have him. GREAT JOB MR. FORTIER!! KEEP THAT UP!!

Great guy, I love the trivia he does at the start of every class to make things fun for students. Tests are straightforward, and he's always available to help you out. It'll be a shame when he retires.

Mr Fortier is THE best GEO teacher I ever had, I had trouble understanding the material and was slower compared to everyone else in the class, but he had the patience and time to keep up with me, made sure i had all the notes jotted down. He is a very FUN teacher, engages with the students and makes them feel welcomed. His trivia and fun little games at the start of class calms the tension in the room and makes everyone happy overall. 10/10 would recommend

He's really knowledgeable about what he teaches and makes the class engaging and fun for students. The brainteasers and trivia were a great way to start off the class as it set a chill and comfortable tone for the rest of the class. He's a fair marker and is always willing to help you. If you put in effort, so will he. His tests can be pretty difficult, so take good notes and ask questions. His class never stressed me out (except when I procrastinated but that's my fault) and I learned a lot.

It's been more than 15 years since I sat in Mr. Fortier's class.
His guidance, gentle demeanor and zeal are two things I'll never forget.
My memories of RHHS have faded but Fortier's name hasn't.
I've live abroad for nearly a decade and heard it all when it comes to teachers.
Fortier and other teachers of calibre are the reason the Canadian education system produces well-rounded and informed citizens.
It's good to know he's still at it after all these years.
Excelsior!

He's a really cool teacher, and makes the class more interesting. For example, at the beginning of the class, he gives trivia and brainteasers to get interest. He's not strict at all, and gives handouts that summarize everything you need to know for the tests, which aren't too difficult. He gives enough time to do all the projects, so it isn't hard to do well. As well, he's very knowledgeable about his subject, which he can explain in detail. He has a variety of teaching methods. Cool teacher.

Mr. Fortier is the best teacher I have ever seen! Perfect for my taste :). He is extremely smart, unbiased, reasonable, fun. He teaches with a terrific clarity and is very well organized. Importantly, he cares dearly about his students and this meant the world to me. If all the the teachers were like him, the world would be a far better place. I hope he will teach forever. :) A++

Mr. Fortier was the best teacher I had in High school. Ever since he taught me first period in my first semester in grade 9, I realised that there are great teachers out there and he was just the guy. He is the most chill AND nicest teacher I have ever known and I actually learned the course in his class (which was geography). I don't remember anyone misbehaving in his class and there probably never will. Overall, having Mr. Fortier as a teacher is an opportunity not to miss!
