He is SUPER nice and fair! The only thing is he doesn't really teach during class because he's too busy telling jokes and stories...

Great teacher! His notes are very good and his tests are easy if you study. He is also very kind. Warning : When he gives you pages to read in your textbook for homework, read them! The info from readings can sometimes be found on his tests and quizzes.

Mr. Gibson is one of the most lively teachers I know. His ability to make dad jokes and fit puns in to any lesson is surprising and sometimes cringe-worthy. His tests were formatted exactly the same throughout the course with a lot of term to definition comparisons (So make sure to know the vocabulary before hand).

Near the end of the school year he showed my chem class a video of him dancing with some other teachers in a teacher talent show from a school in Asia he taught at many years ago. I was totally expecting it to be dad dancing (as cringe-worthy as his puns), but it turns out Gibson's a decent dancer. Way better than me anyway. Also he's good at teaching science

He's the nicest guy everrrrrr. However, not the best teacher. You should definitely be reading the textbook because Gibby doesn't always cover everything perfectly. His tests are kinda hard. He's always there if you need help, so thats nice. Great guy

He is such a nice person but not a good teacher AT ALL! Had him for grade 11 &12 (bio and chem each yr). He uses the textbook too much and doesn't provide in depth details into the science concept in order to understand the basis of the principles. He lightly covers each topic and moves on to the next.Be ready to make your own notes. Dont expect him to return marked grades back to you within a week. A punny guy, but it can get distracting with the jokes and his stories. Sweet man! Disorganized!

I don't even understand how some one could NOT like his classes. He was so much fun! He reminds me a lot of my dad with his cheesy science jokes and all haha but that aside, he has a fantastic way of explaining things and keeping class fun and interesting.

Mr. Gibson is one of the best chem teachers I ever had in Merivale High School. I do admit that his test are a little bit hard...but you will get used to it. I always start with an average mark in his class and work my way up towards the end of the course. Overall: and excellent teacher
