Interesting...all of these extremely positive non-cirtical comments are not reflecrtive of the teacher and reputation I know of. Not one critical comment. Seems a little skewed.
Monsieur changed my life, he is the most wonderful teacher I have ever met. He helped me grow as a student and as a person. I can honestly say i don’t know who I would be without him. He is an exceptional teacher, and has affected the lives of so many students. I know he is strict, but i would recommend him as a teacher to any student or parent. Merci monsieur!
When you think of a teacher you'll never forget? This is definitely one to remember! Strict but exceptional at teaching with a passion you've never experienced! You actually learn in his class.
Teaches effectively and knows his stuff. Tough but effective :)
Always willing to help his students. He's tough but fair.
Amazing, that's all there is to it.He isn't very helpful, but he helps when you need to be helped. He teaches us to tihnk for ourselves.
Best french teacher ever...i am living in Montreal now and basically have turned Quebecois since PIF...thank you JAL!
I don't like how he picks out his favorites, puts students down with his jokes which aren't always funny, and his stubbornness as well, but besides that, his teaching styles are great and he's funny.
Monsier Larivee has been the most influential teacher in my son's life. He has inspired him in many ways and has made him grateful for his F.I. education. Thank you J.A.L.
I love monsieur... he has changed my life. I used to be a quiet, shy girl, who was affraid to get up and speak. And he turned that around... i am now outgoing, openminde and much more concience of who i am and want to be! He loves his job and spends countless hours after school, which his extracurricular activities.. He really gets you thinking and ive never learnt soo much. He has made me who i am today
This is JAL's last year at R-side and he's made it the best ever. As others have said, he's quite the philosopher, he's a ton of fun to be around, and I've never learned more from a teacher (not just french).
I had JAL over 20 years ago. My friends from that time and I still talk about him as being the teacher who has most impacted our lives. Enjoy the time you have with him - he's one-of-a-kind. Merci JA!
Amazing teacher, also puts in some philosophy in his classes which is just great for small minded students. GOO LARRIVEE!
Tied with Lepore for the best teacher at Riverside Secondar in my opinion.
Best teacher I've ever had, completely changed my attitude towards school. Don't slack in his class and you'll be fine.
HE is probably the only teacher that talks his mind 24/7. His class in the best ever and anyone that has him should be glad.
his class is the only class that i've ever taken that i really enjoy.
He's a realy great teacher.I learned so much from him and i miss french this term.The class is hard but fun.It was my favorite class,can't wait until next year!
What all teachers should be like! ;) He pushes you hard but it is worth it. I've never learned so much in my life as I learned from him!
Definetly the best french teacher I've ever had. He's not easy but he'll teach you a thing or two about yourself. Don't slack off, his classes are rewarding.
He's tough, but he'll challenge you in a good way. He has no tolerance for those who lack discipline. Eccentric - he collects frogs of all kinds.
