Easily the BEST teacher I've ever had. Mr. Irwin is understanding, a fantastic teacher, and truly cares for everyone of his students. It was an honour to be in his class and I honestly miss him so much.

Irwin was the best! He's super approachable and helps out as much as he can. We always got a day to stidy in class before tests and if you spent it asking questions you were sure to get a good mark on the test. Once answered the door holding a meter stick like a weapon and said I was going to slash his tires. We always got 15-20 minutes of free time to waste before class, it was great!

Irwin made me hate physics. I loved physics before Grade 11, but i've ruled out any jobs related to physics. He assigns WAY too much homework! He does not realize that we have other classes too. Physics takes up the whole day everyday. He is such a terrble teacher, he only uses the textbook, and doesn't explain anything! He is not understanding at all with assignments and homework. He has crazy expectations, everyone is failing. 10/10 worst teacher. But otherwise he seems like a great person!!!!

Great teacher who knows his stuff. If you don't understand he's more than willing to help you! Although he does come in late a lot. Why? I don't know... But whatever, more time to work ;)

He's one of the sweetest teachers I have ever had, but isn't always 100% clear with his direction. He does a great job teaching subjects that many people find boring. Smart guy...in a quirky way.

Usually a nice guy, but he exploded on the whole class once for a stupid reason, that only about 5 people out of 20 were involved with. Average instructor. His marking seems a little unfair at times.

He helps u when u need it. He DOES prepare you for Uni. Physics! He does waste a lot of time though, but don't think you can slack off, physics12 is hard work.
