i wandering if this is the harry bower that taught at orchard park 1974 i had mr bower for politics and he was great. he was very passionate about teaching abnot history i know he wanted everyone to understand it before he moved on , he helped me so much and i couldnt wait to go to class because he made politics so much fun., he was my favorite teacher because he actually cared about the students he gave me extra help and i got a great mark at the end,,thanks for being a great teacher
Mr. Bower was amazing! Two things I remember from his class. 1. how old is someone before they're an adult? What makes someone an adult. 2. Bower Book of Life - when will it be published? Great great teacher! He cared about all of his students and didn't veiw teaching as just an easy retirement. Best teacher I ever had.
I loved Mr. Bower. Was able to keep the class awake and intersted. Had a passion for teaching, and making sure students succeeded. Best moment was when a classmate kept looking at the clock, he took it off the wall and put it on that student's desk so he wouldn't have to keep looking at the wall.
Up the Empire, sir! :)
Mr.Bower was the effing MAN!!!
I remember he would always start a story and continue on for the entire class and we would end up not having to do much. He made history interesting! That's a miracle a
It's been a long time since my Highland days, but I have to see Bower was the man. You helped me become the man I am today. Thank you.
A sad day when Bower walked out of Highland for the last time. It ain't been the same without ya sir.
AMAZING teacher! I was sooo sad when he retired! Had him for his last class ever! Great teacher! Was afraid of him at first, but turned out to be one of the most influential people I've ever met.
Here's to the greatest history teacher Highland Secondary will ever see. I'd do anything to make you proud, Mister B, and I wish my profs here at western had half your charisma.
taught more than history - he taught the bower book of life. an amazing man. smart, funny and fair. truly a great teacher. made me what I am today.
Totally awesome teacher. Mean as nails if you don't respect him, but he's only there to help you. I nearly cried when he retired. Only teacher who got me to hand things in on time. Miss you!
Bower was possibly the coolest teacher ever, I had him for two semesters, one of which was his last one... He made every class interesting!
YOU ROCK!! even tho i never had u as a teacher u were so nice to me i will miss you have a great summer
Mr Bower Rocks!! i never had him as a teacher but you are one of the best teacher that i met at highland and i will realli miss you since you are leaving at the end of this year!
MR Bower is a good teacher however he takes his job far to seriously. He also has a tedency to go on rants that have nothing to do with the subject on hand.
Oh man! By far I learned the most in this class, and it will be the most useful for higher grades and higher learning Thanks Mr. Bower, we appriciate you
I've never had Mr.Bower, except when he was filling in for other teachers, but he's great to talk to and very nice.
Highland would not be the same with out you Mr. Bower.
Another former student teacher would like to say thanks for showing me that teaching is more than books and red pens. Passion+morals+intellect=Harry Bower (PH)
Inspired me to become a teacher with four simple words on my first paper: A university calibre paper! I can never thank him enough. He knows who I am!
took the clock off the wall and put it on my desk because i was looking at it too much. well maybe if he didn't babble on endlessly in that self-righteous way..
I had Mr Bower in 1994. I thought and still think he is a great person and a good teacher!
Mr Bower is an amazing teacher that involves his class in every lesson he teaches. Aside from that he is also a great guy!
Mr. Bower was one of the greatest teachers and men I've ever known. He was always fair and never boring! What a great guy!!
One of the coolest teachers in our school, you make learning fun! I hope you have good luck in your future life!
Bower is one of those amazing teachers that can change your life - he certainly changed mine, for the better. I will never forget the university in Italy, Bower
An absolutely amazing teacher! He is so passionate about everything and truly cares about the students! I considered taking another history just to have him!
Harry, you are the best mentor a person could have (from a former student teacher) but I've never thrown a shoe (yet) You're helpful and clear...but never easy!
Great teacher! He cares a lot about all of his students. Class is never boring, and I really understood everything he taught us.
Good teachers don't have to throw shoes at their students to get them to listen. You scarred me for life Bower
I'd have to say he works very hard for his current image of a respected, honest teacher. In any case, he deserves it
A teacher that other teachers look up to...a man of principles and intellect. A teacher par excellence.
Easily my favourite teacher while at Higland. Up the Empire, it's a load of this, so many great lines. Amazing teacher.
More POWER to BOWER!!! A great teacher. Always enthusiastic. Has a great love of history. Easily one of the best in Canada. Anyone who has him is one fortunate student!!!
Thank you for so many things - including my love of history. You are the best!
Im dropping Ancient History only b/c i just heard your not teaching it anymore!
A great man and a great techer!!!!! Lovin the new gotee!!!
Probably the finest teacher I've ever had. Strong work ethic, an inspiration...
Had him two times, and going on my third... incredible and influentual guy
Really cool. Watch out for the left shoe. Use Power Point an much as possible.
Thanks for being an amazing teacher, and always helping us.
