This teacher started engaging with students unprofessionally and is no longer a teacher. Should be a warning. Still with one of the students he made a relationship with in high school.
Great teacher, but way to personnel
Although Mr. Bates is a good teacher and helps the students to try and learn sometimes he pushed into people's personal business a bit too much so I would say other than that a good teacher, eventhough he wouldn't bump my mark up...lol...good job! <3 Jennifer H
He is the MAN!!!!!!!! He is probably one of the greatest teachers of all time!!!!!!! I would love to have him teach me every year!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Yet another teacher that inspired me into the teaching profession. He cares and I want to do nothing less than to lead like he led. Love Bates! Graduate of '07.
mr.bates has never been one to push himself into another problem but he others help whenever he notices an issue. the people that say hes not helpful dont know him because he stayed up till 3am 2 help
Joel Bates is one of the most respectable teachers ive ever met. He succeeds in teaching, comunnicaton and spends extra time assiting his students when they need it even if its not for his class.
He's a nice teacher, but he tries way too hard to get involved with people's personal lives, and doesn't spend nearly enough time actually helping with work.
He helps the students as much as he can, but he gets too personal with them. Asking questions that shouldnt be asked, and wanthing to know things...
Bates is tough but hes there early and late for help and pushes me to be better then other teachers.
Bates is awesome. but has to stop getting into peoples personal business so much
Mr Bates is a pretty cool teacher i ahd him for english last year he is so involved with his students and school activeties he was a great teacher .Cant wait untill next semester
Bates is such a cool teacher, he totally makes every class the one I look forward to. I've learned so much already and I look forward to the time we're going to spend together.
He is my sisters teacher but i would want him to be my teacher because he is cool.
AWESOME TEAHCER!!! help out alot and moves dates back
I luv coming to his class. He makes history fun and i like the fact that he moves due dates for us if we need it.
BEST teacher at the school and in the world!! Sir u ROCK!!!!!
best teacher in the world, very dedicated to his work
Sir u r the coolest!!!! He gives lots of work but is always there to help!!! Expains things very well!!! GREAT TEACHER!!!! (take his all classes they r great!!)
I think that he's a good, entertaining teacher, and very helpful, but he tends to be a bit stubborn if he thinks he's going to be wrong.
Bates u da man!!!!!!!!!lol U are the coolest teacher!!! he is so helpful!!
Bates means well but I think he forgets what it's like to be a student again. Overall he's a fair teacher
Bates gives out WAY too much hw, its like he doesnt realize that we have lives outside of class BUT he does help u with the work and personal stuff so hes cool
He passed me, and that makes him cool! The workload can get heavy, but he's very flexible with deadlines and will give help when it's needed.
He is an awesome teacher. he takes the time to make sure you understand the concept well. His efforts and time make him deserve a break..lol...Good job Bates
He is a good teacher. His assignments are sometimes difficult but he marks fairly . I'm learning Canada's history In a creative manner.
He is the best! I hope I get him as a teacher next year, he made me want to become a teacher myself!
He's my favourite teacher!! He makes history fun and easy!! Yes homework is some what extensive, but he's a fair marker and you get what you disserve
I love his approach to history. He makes the past come alive. Good teacher, altough he gets a bit overzelous on the homework.
He pushes us way too hard but you will never forget his class! He makes history fun even though the work load is alot!
Bates may give out a lot of work but he makes it fun and is always around to help. What other teacher comes in super early and there email address for help?!!!
Mr. Bates is a GREAT teacher! You just have to be open-minded! If a teacher knows his stuff, wouldnt that make him a great teacher and not a brutal teacher?
