He literally said at the start of grade 8 SS that he wasn't gonna teach us anything that we couldn't find out about ourselves. I mean, who's gonna waste their precious time researching ancient civilizations. He always threatens credits. He always says one thing and means something completely different, then everyone in the class has to redo their entire projects, not correct them, but redo them. He is SUPER PICKY and he is never scared to say that he hates someones work.
I love Mr. Burgess, he is the best and I miss being in his class (and General Byng overall). When I was in his class we did a lot of writing but they really helped me in high school. We did so many essay writing that that is why I got better at typing. Mr. Burgess is one of those teachers who can talk for the whole class, I can't believe I'm saying this but I miss his lectures. He can be strict at times but as long as you do your work he's chill.
Mr. Burgess makes things more complicated than need be. He is very forgetful and has a hard time explaining assignments with clarity.
I had him in grade 8 for english and ss. I didn't like him back then but now I'm in uni and i miss those classes. how times change. He was funny and everyone looked forward to his classes
Great teacher. My son really enjoyed his class. Everyone was equal and treated well. He developed everyone and was able to challenge his students.
Mr.burgees is a good teacher he talks a lot, gets off topic a lot. But you learn a lot from him. He gives a lot of homework but its not irrelevant homework. Always keep his handouts they help a lot!
Mr. Burgess is the best teacher ever! I love how at the end of his classes, you are able to learn something new. He gives a lot of electronic homework to train you for high school. It is challenging at first but you will get use to the colossal amount of homework. The things that he teaches during class will definitely helpful in the future. I like how he discusses issues around the world with the class and encourages students to share their opinions as well as ask questions in class.
He is the reason I am in Honors English in high school. He is an amazing teacher and engages the students in discussions, even if they are not about social or English they were always interesting and informative. It has been years since I have been in that class and I miss it. KEEP HIS HANDOUTS and remember his title pages, teachers love them in high school. and in grade 7-9 you might complain about all the work and projects but he really prepares you for high school. favorite teacher at byng!
The reason my son loves going to school.
He was a great teach and he really prepared me for high school, i think he is a nice guy and really enjoyed his classes.
talks in circles, and doesn't answer questions directly, so you don't get a very clear answer. marks unfairly, some people who don't try, can get the same mark as people who do work at a higher level,
oh my goodness!!! he gives me a headache just thinking about him!! you'll learn a LOT in his class but even though i got a good grade i struggled the whole year! if he likes you and you try you'll get
burgess is ok..... but stop giving us so MUCH homework!!!
Helps excel students to academic wants rather than needs. Great guy. Really prepares you for high school. If you do well in his class and keep up with your school work with him you'll go far in both s
I am currently in my second year of university. Looking back on all of the teachers I have ever had, Mr. Burgess is the best. Does he still try to scare the class on the first day? Ha. What a guy.
Hard teacher at first but it all becomes valuable later on. Tough if your a jerk to him but stay on his good side. It will be a hard class but it will prepare you well for highschool. Bananas for life
had him in gr.7 didnt like at first im goin into gr12 this year, and kinda miss the guy. Way to eat black bananas Mr. B. how time goes by......
