Best teacher I’ve had in the history of my school career
The. Best. Teacher. I've. Ever. Had. He was so fantastic. Every class was fascinating. He made cultivated a connection with me, and would so willingly explore even the most unrelated question. Discussion with him felt personal, completely understandable, and so fulfilling! He made his students really feel great about participating, and would always find the best in any of us. His positive attitude and fantastic sense of humor made his philosophy class unmissable. Take his course.
I took several of Joel's classes over my years at Rosedale because I thought he was a really great teacher. While of course we spend a lot of time learning the class material, he also spends a whole lot of time getting his classes ready for university, which is unimaginably helpful. He's a great teacher, he treats his students like equals, and I loved learning from him. 5/5 teacher
If you need a top 6 uni course take one of Joel's classes - I can't speak for his philosophy course, but in world history there are no opinion questions, essays, or any other kind of assignment that requires that you do any thinking or actual learning! The assignments are just to copy your notes, which Joel dictates in class. Easy & boring. If you don't mind sitting through like, 5 dull history documentaries and listening to Joel talk about how excellent capitalism is, go for it
one of the best teacher in rosedale height.........extremely friendly and interllectual teacher...!!GOD BLESS U23
Awesome Teacher!!! Always encouraged his students to think outside the box!
Mr. Gottlieb is an incredible teacher. Teaching is his passion and it really comes through in all his classes. I would highly recommend anything he teaches.
such a great guy! an easy class too-- if you want an A , you can definitely get it!
It is not surprising so many students post positive comments about Joel because he is very charismatic. He is a good teller of stories, which makes for an interesting history class. However some of the material he uses in sociology(example Men Are from Mars, Women Are from Venus) is dated and the advice he gives the class about how to interact with the opposite gender does not apply to all people in all situations.
he is a great teacher, i seriously think he is the best teacher i've ever had at rosedale
Joel is the absolute best teacher. He has taught me valuable life skills and so many things that I know are going to help me in my future. If anyone has a chance to work with him, take it! He is the most caring person I know, and will help you with anything.
It is because of Joel Gottlieb that I set my sights higher than I would have on my own, and now I'm on the path to becoming a cognitive neuroscientist. I have never before, nor after, come across a teacher like Joel. Forget James Franco- Joel deserves the Oscar!!!!...or the Nobel Peace Prize.
Joel deserves the utmost praise for merely breathing. He has brought my mind to a level of thought I never once thought I could. I love him like a son loves a father and he loves each and every one of his students like a father loves his child and that is paramount in what he does as a teacher. Joel will live forever. His very energy will remain with this world until the end of time. He's such a good man. He deserves an award. Hahaha. -Dylan Ribble
He is the greatest teacher ever. He can open your mind... Or destroy it.
I absolutely LOVE Mr. Gottlieb! I had such a great time in his philosophy class last year.
What a man. A life teacher. You'll appreciate his need for perfect grammar when you're out in the real world!
i learned a lot in his class and had fun. i did not however appriciate how he embarrassed some students. overal, he's a good teacher.
This teacher understands. The least esoteric social sceince teacher I have ever had. My only complaint is he may be a bit too easy.
Hands down the greatest teacher of all time. This man know how to teach and connect with young people.There needs to be more teachers like this in the world.
Probably the best teacher I have ever had. I would go back and take another course with him if I could. He was the only teacher that actually taught me what would be expected of me at a university level. Always pushed me to do my best.
Joel will not let you think for yourself, but that is good in the sense that university is all about that. I at first didn't like Joel's approach to our answers (which consisted of us copying down exactly what Joel said), but now I understand he was showing us what it is like at the upper level.
Very annoying!!! He never stops with his personal anecdotes and completely throws the class off topic!
Joel was my teacher for a year and to tell you the truth he's the only one i can actually remember. He taught me a lot but most of all he actually makes you want to show up.
Joel is really an incredible teacher and it's a shame that those who could learn from his intolerance of poor grammar are instead insulted by it.
Worst teacher ive ever had. Doesnt prepare you for university, doesnt teach the material as it should be taught. Manipulates his students to have the same opinions that he has.
JOEL IS AMAZING, BEST TEACHER IN THE WORLD, IF YOU EVER GET A CHANCE TO HAVE HIM AS YOUR TEACHER, DO IT.
Joel not only teaches History, he teaches life lessons. I can't believe the year is over, but I know of all the teachers I respect. He's #1 on my list.
If you can't dazzle them with brilliance, baffle them with B.S., eh Joel.
Yeah Joel grade nine geography was awesome I wish I had had u for other classes but hey that year was really fun. I'll never forget the black smokers at the bottom of the ocean ;P
Some of his opinions sound outdated but I hear his classes are enjoyable regardless
Not only is Joel a great school teacher, he's a great life teacher. Thanks for all your help with my mom Joel, I appreciate your advice. I'm sure every student of yours will leave your class with many life lessons learned. Your passion for teaching is obvious and it inspires your students to shoot for the stars.
Joel is a very respectful harding working teacher. he's probably the best teacher anyone has had for history because he's fun. Joel knows how to relax at times and work hard at other times. He's a hard marker, but it's all for the best.You're a great teacher, keep it up Joel!
LOVE HIM!!!! All grade nines who get him for history next year......you're gonna love him! He is the best teacher ever and so much fun! Keep doing what you do, Joel....its a lot better than most of my teachers who wouldn't know creative learning if it bit them on the behind.
Joel is an Amazing teacher!! He's interesting & he treats his students with respect. He may be a hard marker but he is just trying to prepare his students for University, which is useful for whoever said he should stop acting like a University professor (failing a teacher's class is an unfair way to judge them or not like them). Keep it up Joel!!
Simply the best teacher I've ever had. I was dreading grade 10 history, but now I look forward to it.
He was my favourite teacher this year. He is always helpful and he lets you learn what you want to learn and he makes almost every class fun.
I'm failing the 2 classes that i'm in but he is awsome, i try hard but he's such a hard marker. I have fun in his class and it keeps me awake. He's great
doesn't teach anything for a month, then gets mad at you when you're not there! Very scattered and unorganized, and pretends he's a U prof. WE're in highschool!
This guy is great, the only problem is that he always wants perfect grammar! Plus he changes wrods in your essays and papers so that he thinks it's right.
Joel is the best teacher that I have ever had. His classes are never boring (that is unless he's not there). He respects his students and makes things clear! :)
He's a born teacher, and a nice person--wish he taught ALL my classes!
This is the most impressive man i've ever met, patient, brilliant and completely unpretentious.
best teacher i have ever had, his class was so fun i had him two years in a row wish i had him next year.he makes school fun
Joel's one of the only teachers that I've met that treats his students with respect. The only reason I took economics was because he was the teacher. I miss him
I had him for gr 12 Eco and OAC Eco three years ago and he is a wonderful teacher. Very personable and truly cares about his students. Makes class fun!
IF I were in his class RIGHT now i would be SO happy!
