Easily one of the top high school teachers I've had. If you genuinely care about your work further than just getting the marks, your experience with him will likely be positive. One of the few teachers to make me passionate about both writing and learning.
Worst teacher ever. Pray to god you don't get him. He is rude and he is always in a bad mood. Always off topic and we get no class time to work cause he's always talking. Switch out of his class ASAP.
He was nice, though he makes his classes very boring; by talking about really IRRELEVANT subjects.
While it wasn't my favourite class of the year, he was kind enough to allow me to hand in my late assignments (after the year ended, aka exam week) and finished with an 80 in English. He's not awful, but he does talk a lot, and I mean, if you say 'hi' in the hall, you'll get a full conversation from him.
He was okay, often felt like he was never open to any ideas but his own and could very quickly bring down a student and make them feel bad about themselves
I had Mr. Lindsay last Semester for French, and wow! He's great. I really don't understand why so many people dislike him, he's very wise and a very interesting man. If you are a good student, than you will like him. If you tend to speak out a lot in class, use class time unwisely, and hand in projects late, than don't expect him to be your favourite teacher. He picks out unruly students, and even though it might not always seem fair, he just wants everyone to succeed.
Knowledgeable, helpful, kind, and encouraging
Mr. Lindsay is a very smart man, he is very clear and makes sure you understand the material.
Very difficult to work with and your opinion is always wrong when it comes to him
One of the hardest teachers i have had.
great english teacher but not for high school. he can be helpful sometimes if you seek for help
Caught multiple times staring at underage cleavage as female students are at his desk for help, and staring at their asses as they walked back to their desks.
Totally unprofessional and disgusting.
He was a sound teacher, but on a personal level, seemed rather pompous. He sometimes came off as being quite condescending, which is unjustifiable given that he appears to be nothing more than a pseudo-intellectual.
no doubt that he has a lot of knowledge... he just doesnt know the approporiate timing for it. he needs to learn when to keep his mouth shut, his unecessary opinion on everything made english class hard to like
Mr. Lindsay is very intelligent and he marks fairly.
Incredible knowledge. Great opinions of writing. Very helpful.
ian lindsay is easily the smartest person at aurora high school. His encouragement in creative writing has stayed with me. Appreciate him while you can!
tells the same stories every semester - plaigarism at harvard, the starlings, why love is scientifically proven...
He can be very very very fun! I found people either love or hate him. I thoguht he was really good at structuring a class. He appreciates intellectuals.
Mr. Lindsay was a passionate teacher [i don't know nemore. it's been a couple yrs]...He can be very intellectual and a helpful teacher when it's one on one.
Scary when hes mad...nice guy...awsome drama teacher...but very weird.
Arogant! Stop ripping apart your students essays in class! passion for what he does. good writing skills.
The most intelligent man I'll ever meet. Love this teacher..you learn so much.
the man has passion for drama & english - you have to respect that !
he's willing to take his own time to put on a play - its appreciated
Thanks for teaching me how to write good essays... BUT... tone down a little!
