I've always known Mr. Durksen as a knowledgable teacher who makes a concerted effort to connect with his students. It really impressed me when I learned that he turned down an acceptance into medical school in order to teach. Overall, this is a solid person and teacher, one who I am honoured to have been taught by.
He's an awesome dude! his class is always fun and interesting, I really like him!
He tends to have his 'emotional moments' at times, usually when he hasn't had his 6 cups of coffee or has to teach on an empty stomach. He is not at all strict with homework or class participation. Other than our exam, we only had 2 tests in the whole year. He assigns extremly easy projects and marks generously.
I have known Doug Durksen for six years and for that entire time, I have known him to be a terrific teacher. More important is that he is an even better guy.
Funny guy, doesnt challenge his classes enough. In grade 10 science he goes patronizingly slowly. He is altogether a very good teacher.
A very intersing guy. Somewhat odd, though he gives me alot of free food.
very moody is nice one day and angry the next, has extreme favouritism.
NO MORE NOTES! PLEASE! The only reason I like social studies is because it gives me time to relax. I always leave the room knowing no more than what I already knew.
he's doing pretty good considering he used to teach senior science and math and now he's teaching grade 7 Geography.
Always gives full info on assignments, pretty flexible and a good sense of humour.
Great teacher, too bad his class is so easy it gets incredibly boring.
