Mr. Coats was my teacher back in 2004 and he was the best teacher I ever had. I still remember his awesome classes. Every class it was something different. His teaching style was amazing, every kid in my class enjoyed him from him dressing up to playing music on his boom box to teach us about a specific time in history. Amazing.
I had Mr. Coats for Social Studies. One of the best teacher I have ever had in my life. He is not an out of textbook reading kind of guy, but more interactive with the learning process. I still remember him dressing up as the Statue of Liberty with the toilet plunger in hand as the torch.
Wow is he still there? I had him as my teacher from grade 7 to 9 ending in 1988! Best teacher ever!
Had him for grade 7 and 9 and I can say he is probably one of the best teachers out there. His knowledge as well as enthusiasm makes for a very fun and informative class enviroment
Mr. Coats is one of the very few teachers who I can honestly say ever cared, who taught with the most concern and passion for teaching. I am an alumni of Woodman Jr. High from the mid 70's and I still remember him with great admiration and respect. If all teachers were more like Mr. Coats it would be a better world :)
I graduated from University over 7 years ago, but I still consider Mr. Coats (who taught me Grade 9 Social Studies) to be one of the best teachers I had throughout my entire academic career. He made the material he taught come to life, and helped instill a passion in me for life.
Mr. Coats was the best teacher I have ever had. I am now in my last year of university and Mr. Coats's social studies class in grade 9 was the the best class I had in my whole educational endeavor.
Mr. Coats', you're the greatest teacher anyone could ever have. Wish you were still here as this is my last year at Woodman and you are a true inspiration. I'll never forget your class - best ever!!
The best teacher ever!!! Made social studies interesting!
without a second thought he tottaly made ss fun i remember the music part of his class and every time i hear a song that he explained i can't help but think about my time at woodman.
Always made social studies great and taught us how it connects with everday life. Not boring at all!!!
He was the best teacher ever. Woodman will miss you lots, Mr. Coats. Your legacy though, will fill the minds and hearts of past students for more time than imaginable.
my teen never complained about the class; pti were always informative
graduated in 88; now have a love of Canadian history and wished I could be as good a teacher as him
THIS GUY ROX, LIKE PEW PEW PEW PEW PEW LAZER, he is like Chuck Norris meets the Hulk who marrys Super Woman. If it wasnt for Mr Coats incredible teaching, i wouldnt have opened... see next post

Best teacher ever, very helpful and made the class fun.
His knowledge of the subject matter was remarkable; he made the material fun and easy to learn. Nearly 4 years latter and he still is the best.
Coats will always be remembered as the best social studies teacher I've always had. For not his influence, I wouldnt be in my 4th year of Economics at UofC
Coats has always been the prize instructor for Woodman. As a veteran, Coats' teaching method has been proven to be effective and will be remembered as the best
Mr. D. Coats is an excellent teacher who assists in everyones' blatant love of Social Studies. It is brilliant to see such a fine calibre of teaching quality.
Mr. Coats was my teacher at Woodman in the late 70's. He was by far the best teacher I have ever had. I am now a teacher myself. If I can be even half as goo

Even tho I didn't get all the material sometimes I always liked being in his class.
