An insightful and intelligent, if self-deprecatingly humble, teacher who succeeds in fusing a high academic calibre with the need to engage. Math courses are intense and fast-paced with little room for mediocrity. A hard-line educator who lives by truth, setting clear standards and expectations for ALL. A tad old-school, which can be an asset in this era of entitlement. More brain than heart, and could be more approachable, but his overall disposition is friendly. A pleasure to have around.
Mr Proppe is a bit scary to a lot of people I think but his class is a good time, he explained concepts with clarity and provoked students to show their learning in class, also times for silent working
obviously very passionate about his subject but at times a bit harsh. he explains things in ways that i find a bit overtly complicated and he's a pretty hard marker.
Great teacher. Very clear and concise and has a great personality. He's rich and yet he still wants to teach math which I am grateful for because he's a great teacher.
He's probably one of the best, if not the best math teacher I've ever had. He can come across as rude sometimes but it's funny if you were ever in his class. I can see why people wouldn't like him, but he is a very good teacher and when I first started he helped me a lot, so if someone thinks that he can't teach, well they can just go in for extra time and make the effort. Thanks for being an awesome teacher Mr.Proppe :)
He's GREAT! Super helpful and he makes class fun, best math teacher I've ever had, love him. :)
He's soooooo nice; even though its hard, he makes it fun and interesting. Who would have thought that the pyramids and special triangles had so much in common.
He just makes everything seem easy, and like I can do it.
great teacher. just different teaching style. people just need to get off their asses and do some work! theyre too spoiled and used to getting spoon fed everything. Im sad for those that complained.
The course is challenging because it's fast paced and Proppe is an excellent teacher. If I had a problem with some of the homework he always clarifies things for me one-on-one.
i think mr.propper is a good teacher. after going to ask for help before school i understood it more one-on-one. some concepts taught in class are taught too quickly and i dont understand.
He cares sooooo much. I've never done so well in math, and I look forward to going to his class. I love the jazz to!
I really don't like math, but at least Mr. Proppe is funny and i'm doing well so I can't really complain.
I think he's the best. He always has so much energy, and lets us know he cares! Math his hard for me, but he is always there to help, making me want to do my best!
The absolute best. He's at school early every day and always has a smile on his face ready to help. I love that he let us have a fish and love the funny ice breaking you tube clips he shows.
He's so nice....I'm taking a course this summer and he's even helping me with homework through e-mail!!! I hope I get him next year!!
The best! He always has something interesting to say, and tells it in a really funny but real way.
He's soooooo nice, and always helpful! I love the stories he tells, and that he stops to answer questions. He can get a bit "excited" but he is never dull. If you get Mr.P your lucky!
i love mr.proppe. i get lilke perfect on all of my tests since hes been back the last teachers we had sucked and didnt now how to teach. YAY MR PROPPE
He's so patient with me! He's always around, and if he can't help you at that moment, never forgets to get back to you very soon! I love the morning chocolate :)
He's been back a few months, and I have never had so much fun learning! He tells GREAT stories, but uses them to teach as well as entertain! Thanks for all the laughs, and the extra help!
Well, since I got him I actually got perfect on a math test - the first time ever in my life in a subject (academic math) that I wasn't supposed to be in in the first place! Thanks, Mr. Proppe!
happiness!!! thanx to him i'm doing so much better!!!
(continued) I'm not big on the homework. We get a lot, plus on top of other projects (big culminating activies) & math isnt my top priority, plus with out of school activities...its hard =(
I really like his teaching style and he's taught me a lot in just a few months. He's really nice.
excellent teacher his is clear and precise and keeps on track when it comes to homework...i am doing better already
He's strict BUT keeps us all on track and is really clear in his teaching and whats expected! He even asks the disruptive ones to leave (1st time I've seen that ESA)THanks Mr.P for teaching us so well
He's tough but really nice at the same time. I really understand his teaching.
Mr.P's the MAN! He really cares about his students & gives it his all! I've never had such a carring,honest & SMART teacher! When I talk to him I know he's listening& that he will be helpful!
totally rad... the first time I've ever understood math :)
He's the man ... never learned so much in math class before:)
YOU ARE AN AMAZING TEACHER!!!!!!!! You really know what ur doing in math!
Saw you in the hall today....missed you, but know I will do better now that you're back!
When are you coming back ...please come back soon :)
THanks for a great year Mr.P; I hope I get you again next year!
mr proppe, oooh mr proppe...he gave us 2 days to finish an entire culminating project, and most students missed other classes and stayed up all night to finish it..now im in geography and HES NOT HERE
could offer more examples for the students, step by step, when introducing new subjects, instead of simply giving them reams of examples and expecting them to figure it out on their own.
Mr. Proppe, Please do something fun in Geo, all we do is work out of the workbook!
I just love Mr.P I have him in math and geo and I "just get him." He makes everything seem so easy, and when I go home, I still understand and can do the hw! I love his classes
I don't know what everyone is talking about the colouring. We are an Arts school, and I am seeing things about Canada I never saw before. I'm glad Mrs. J is leaving & Mr.P is back
he goes way to fast in math, we have to do like 5 questions at the begenning of class, then he says ok moving on, and im still in the middle of the first question,SLOW DOWN PLEASE
Mr. Proppe makes us colour too many maps for geography. Pointless work.
he's over all good. I hate all the colouring we have to do. I don't know how that applies to geo.AND NO MORE CANADA i want to learn about the world!
I can't believe how much colouring we have to do in grade 9! Bring back the jazz!
Yes, please teach us more about the world, not just Canada. And BRING BACK THE JAZZ
I love having him for both Geo and Math but PLEASE TEACH US MORE ABOUT ALL OVER THE WORLD NOT JUST CANADA!! I WANT TO LEARN ABOUT FORGEIN LANDS, NOT JUST BORING OLD CANADA!!!
He is so helpful and takes a lot of time to answer questions. I like having him for both math and geo.
I think he always makes everything clear and understandable. He doesn't drone and is interesting to listen to. I have no problem with the jazz music. He listens well.
I think he's a good teacher and I like his stories. The only thing I don't like is when you try to quite us by saying "shhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh". It's annoying.
Mr. Proppe is a good teacher,but make sure that everyone understands before you move on. i find that the math classes move very quickly and its hard to keep up but overall hes good
I think that Mr. Proppe is a pretty good teacher and I am learning a lot but I really hate the way he says his "shhhhhhhhhh" "shhhhhhhhhh" when I am trying to concentrate.
Mr Proppe is a really great teacher, he really cares about his students, I really love how he takes the time to send or give us our marks!
I miss the Jazz music!!!! Bring it back!!! I LOVE music while i work.
overall mr. proppe is a good teacher. Please make sure that all the students understand b4 contining the the lesson. You can pick ppl without their hands up so they understand more
Jeff Proppe tends to lean towards a different learning style then I like. The subject I find really interesting but I don't like the way it is taught. Colouring things takes long.
i know you have to teach quickly for somethings but dont teach so quickly that people really dont know what to do and please stop the heart and soul thing...and picking favs(boys)
I have him for Geo and Math, and feel lucky. I was failing math before I had him, and now I love math. Thanks Sir.
Mr. Proppe your the nicest math teacher Ive had!! But when we take up homework can you ask people how they got the answer to make it a little clearer!!! thanks!! <3!
He's cool with computers. Thats a major plus. I'm not fond of math and I half-get everything you say. No worries though. You're still cool. I'm a bit intimidated by you though.
I think Mr. Proppe is a teacher that makes things more interesting by the way he sais them.
he has a great teaching method, a little bit choppy, but he always tries to make learning fun which is awsome
i think u r a good techer,'n i think that u should put the jazz music back on... n' also u should make sure if every1 understands what ur explaining...other than that, ur cool!~yep
Very good teacher. To help people understand the work better and faster(especially in Math), try to make your lessons more creative and fun.
i think you are very nice...and very helpful... however i think you should explain projects or assignments in details..
I think you are a good teacher, but i think you shoudl explain thing more so other people actually get what there doing.(but only sometimes)
a great guy at heart....he's helpful and i understand everything in geo now, even if it is (pretty) boring. the jazz is okay, but he could be more open-minded about marking.
perosnally i think he is very intmidating. he is a good teacher in math but when he gives u a # and makes u do teh math questions, i just think that is really scarey, a
Pretty cool guy, funny and should put the jazz back on in his period 7, day 2 class
Overall a pretty good math and geo teacher. I actually like the jazz... :) but he gave me mostly G's on my report when all my other teachers gave me all E's.
i think the music is okay...but i found on the last test it was playing to loud and broke my concentration. he moves to fast in classes, i cant do speed math its really frustratin
positive and fun person caring about students , however he should not use pop quizzes or not use pop quizzes as major part of students overall mark
well he's a good teacher and all but his jazz music really bugs me he always asks us if it bother's him but no one wants to hurt is feelings so mr proppe i hate it please dont play
He's a fantastic math teacher and a good guy at heart. But why dont you know my name after a year? Why do you only like the guys? Please acknowledge me sometime
Omg Mr.proppe is the best teacher. Though he has this thing against guys wearing hats. He knows how to respect his class and therefore get respect in return.
Why are so many people so hard? He's great. I have him for computers and math and love it.
Mr. Proppe is an awesome man. He's caring and devoted and can make lessons fun if you respect him. If you don't respect him why should he respect you?
picks favourites in a big way (ie. boys) and does'nt care whether or not you understand the material. and lots of suspicious "mistakes" in marking
Great teacher, An amazing guy, You'll love the proppester.
If your going to shhhhhhhh the class, do it lound and clear, not under your breath, those around you became very annoyed (Hint, Hint!)
Plop, sittin in the back of ya class staring at you with a clueless expression and not comprehending the concepts of math. Those were the days.
Mr Proppe=two sides,1 face: nice, funny, and helpful. On the other,fairly vicious, but in that way that is soft, and makes u feel guilty. BUT ITS JUST A HAT SIR
