Hammer's class iaalways super fun to be in! If you're taking his IB Geo 11 class then you might find him intimidating, but once you reach Grade 12 you'll become more relaxed in his class. Super knowledgeable, knows a lot about the world. Hilarious teacher at times, picks on the students he likes but not too much. Geo is a tough subject to teach (a LOT of material) but he covers it well even if he gives a crazy amount of homework. Study very hard for the tests though!

His brand of humor can be off-putting, but you get used to it or spend two years in torture. His exams are relatively hard if you're good at memorization, and near impossible if you aren't. Ridiculous amounts of homework, most of which includes unnecessary bits that requires tens of hours of research. Still, he's doing a good job of slamming in all the info we need in the short amount of time we have.

Decent Geography teacher. Makes lots of jokes in class. However, he is very strict when it comes to late assignments and will not let you type anything out in class (unless he tells you to).

One of the most fun classes I've been in. Don't get offended if he picks on you; it just means he likes you. Great, funny teacher and I always looked forward going to his classes (however, not on days when IB Geo case studies were due haha).

Makes geography interesting and enjoyable. He slightly favours the IB students more, but only because they ask more questions and are more interested
