Mr Torres is like the nicest guy at Handsworth! If you take notes, communicate, contribute to discussions, and listen, you'll do fine in his class. He is obviously super passionate about history and he teaches you things that are outside the box. He tells funny stories sometimes that are super great, and he is just generally a really happy guy. His class is easy if you attend regularly and participate. He made History 12 one of the best courses at this school!
He is the best teacher I've ever had and is such a genuinely nice guy. He respects his students and make learning history fun. I cannot stress how great he is! 11/10 would recommend.
Best teacher out there
Mr. Torres is awesome. The multiple choice section of his exams are really hard, but if you do really well on the essay and show that you know your material you could easily get 19 or 20 out of 20 on that section. Sometimes his coloring or assigned group assignments are a bit tough. Still great at informing about the political world with no bias and encouraging great discussion. I would like for him to talk a bit about corruption in the government a bit more, as this is a topic he avoids.
Just a really nice guy and an excellent teacher. He's one of those teachers that is so good you'll pick a class because you know he's teaching it. Made every class I've had with him interesting and he's a very fair teacher. Can't say enough good stuff about him.
Hands down best teacher I've ever had. He is so genuine and really explores both sides of the situation in historical events. Never forces his opinion, but creates excellence discussion. He's also the only teacher that ever asked me why I was late all the time and if there was a reason behind it, without getting mad at me. His class discussions are so helpful and he really appreciates the little details in a person. 10/10
mr torres is hands down one of the best teachers i've ever had. I love how he's such a genuine guy, and is so willing to get to know you and hear you story. He is also so good looking hahaha
He's absolutely hilarious and a nice guy. He's the reason I'm studying History. He cares about his students and he's really not as hard a marker as everyone thinks!
my favorite teacher of all time!!! great coach, great teacher and a great person to know, he will always be a good friend.
Mr. Torres is one of the best teachers I have ever had! He made all the lessons interesting and kept us entertained every class and because of that, I learned so much.
Amazing teacher! Taught me so much about the world, and also how to be a better person. He really relates to his students and makes an effort to connect with them.
An awesome teacher who genuinely respects and wants to help you...pretty tough tests but he teaches you everything on them etc. If you listen and take notes you will do well...not a fan of SOPs
He's self absorbed. You have to agree with him. He couldn't pass the salt at the dinner table. He thinks he can play golf, he can, but not well. But I liked him for a C+. He taught me a lot. Great teacher.
He and Mr.Audia are my absolute favourite teachers of all time. I truly believe he wanted all his students to succeed, despite his tough marking. He was very considerate and a caring teacher, with some hilarious stories!
Awesome stories! haha, glowy smile, like a big teddy bear... great guy, and my fave teacher
I don't like the way he teaches and no matter how hard you try, you can never meet his unreasonably high expectations.
i swear to god, the best stories ive ever heard. taught me a lot about history, him and audia are gonna get married. fav story would have to be about the time he helped the little kid pee in the plane.
Mr.Torres is the best teacher ever! You actually understand everything when he explains it, which is why I now love history. He also has great stories.
Wow! my fav teacher ever! Hes amazing- so nice, sincerely cares about his students, and quite nice to look at! history makes my day!
What an awesome teacher!!! So funny, and a cool guy. He is fun to be around, THE BEST stories. And oh how he is very nice to look at. Admirable as a person and as a teacher.
Solid guy. Really tries hard to make is classes interesting, and it pays off.
"can you hear the drums fernandp!" just kidding. i love the man, hes the best teacher i have ever had, and if i had mr audia they would tie. Me and Mr T are best friends.
"wanna hear a funny story" hahaha, oh how often Mr. Torres gets off topic in class... hes the best teacher ever and has a really big heart. Favourite teacher
I grad in 2001 and Torres was the best teacher that i had at handsworth. Him and Mr Audia dont look alike. He went out of his way to pass me in history.
hey Torres, Portugal is going down. Try and stop Rooney!
Good guy, but his class isnt challenging at all i learned nothing i didn talready now in history 12.
I learned sooo much from him in Hist 12, and I love his stories. Great guy and a great teacher.
He says: and umm so ahh well i guess, umm what we are trying to get at here is umm I would say that this is how you uhh.. Just say it! LOL!!!!!!!!!!!!! :@
Torres rocks! He makes history so interesting and he always tells funny stories about his life. Great teacher.
I LOVE Mr. Torres. He makes socials fun, and the stories are so great!!!
yay for softball! he's the best :) quite the looker too...
he's a really, really great guy, and actually cares about his students. History 12 was awesome bc of him.
Hilarious, fun, and good all at once. Torres is the real deal!
Mr.Torres is by far one of the msot favoured teachers at the school, and disserves to be. He's an excellent teacher, and a wonderful person
Such an interesting guy! He always has some sort of story to tell to liven things up in class. He has been able to make history fun unlike Adams. Yay for Torres
he's hilarious, wierd sense of humour, still don't hear that dog barking.
Torres. I guess he's my best teacher. He's like Audia lite . He doesn't yell so much and he's way more chill.
by far my favourite teacher and is easily the best teacher in the school. He is super helpful and makes class fun with all his stories and current event talks
Interesting and well taught class. Great teacher, great guy.
One of the best teachers in this province without a doubt. A very understanding and helpful teacher that everyone can learn from.
Mr.Torres is a good guy, History 12 was a pretty fun class. When he knew the class was losing attention hed tell us a story, usually containing his buddy Eric, and then we'd get back on task. The SOP he makes ya do isnt so bad.
