I had him for both civics and english one year. His work is pretty easy, however he does waste around 2 weeks making the class come up with things related to a word on the board. He's very intelligent and clearly wants to see his students succeed, however if you disagree with his view on certain topics, he marks you harder.
Very knowledgeable and intelligent. With regards to music class, the first year is the hardest with him (worth it for him playing Mad Rush on piano at the end of the semester though). With regards to his other courses, he can be a pretty hard marker.
Biggest issue with him is that his left-wing mindset sometimes slips into the classroom and you get overwhelmed by a large rush of liberal SJW lectures (which can get unpleasant quickly). If you can get past that, you can learn a lot from him.
Mr.Barron is very encouraging and sees the best in his students. He really does focus on those who need a bit of a push to succeed in life. I know this to be true because I was one of those students several years ago. He is strict and he has a wonderfully genius personality. I have come so far, and there are so many teachers that I would want to thank for pushing me throughout those fragile teen years and he is definitely one.
Very odd, had to follow sometimes. Very good teacher though. He often singles out the trouble makers too much and wastes the classes time while he talks to them, making us waste valuable time to do our projects.
I think he is hilarious and quite brilliant! One day in class, when we arrived he was scribbling a long and incoherent formula on the board. The class remained in silence and awe, while he finished. When asked what it was he tried to explain, but it was so abstract and much too intelligent for our grade 9 class. Such an interesting teacher, just pay attention and do your work and you'll be fine!
All i want to say is that U ROCK. seriously, you are very talented + i enjoy being in ur class.
James Barron is an amazing teacher. He was the reason i decided to go into music. His classes were always hilarious and as long as you listened and didn't play over him he was very easy going. He always kept me interested in his classes(although we sometimes got off topic) and is probably the best teacher i will ever have.
Very excellent teacher. He was great at teaching, and always seemed to make his classes interesting. He was very clear when giving assignments, of what he expected, and helped students with their work, and also helped them wo
great teacher, a bit random at times, but when you actually pay attention to what he's saying it makes sense. it's kind of cool. he's pretty different, but not in a bad way. His classes are really fun
Amazing music teacher.....Awsome Halloween stories...
......iam the only alto sax in his class this year!!!!!.......Not a bad Teacher
Hes a cool teacher i guess.. he eats lunch in the dark though.. little grade 7s WATCH OUT!
Mr.Barron is actualy the funniest teacher ever!! hes so cool...hes mean sometimes..but other than that hes sooooo funny!! i saw him driving by my house and he was listening to Dance Dance ! haha
Way too strict, but he's very funny. I don't like it when he blows his nose though -.-;
i had him for math, learned, did those sheets that like took 3 classes to finish, never really undrstood what they were ment for,but he's a really cool teacher! talked about things tht wasnt important
BEST TEACHER EVER! except he can be scary alittle but who wouldn't be? just do your work and its cool! high intelligent man!
Good teacher. Some level of intelligence (and perhaps insanity) is necessary to understand his jokes, maybe that's the problem with some of the more negative people. Very funny, good teacher, nice man.
omg when you blow your nose you sound like a horse!!
he is a cool teacher i learned alot from him but he can be mean....but REALLY funny!!!
he is one of the greatest teachers ive ever met!!!!!!!!!!!!!
