Definitely one of the more knowledgeable teachers at abbey park, sometimes doesn't make things perfectly clear but for the most part you learn fine with him. Only complaints I gotta make are, there were a few things he taught us which after later google searches I discovered to be wrong but it wasn't ever anything major. Tests are extremely challenging while exam is a piece of cake.
Be warned though, he does not appreciate being proven wrong. If he screws up marks on a test, leave it.
amazing teacher! explains everything in a good way. most of the teachers here at abbey park cant teach for life. I hate them. Mr Laxton is smart and knows how to apply his knowledge to the students. he also has common sense and has a very good sense of what the real world will be like for you and what expectations the jobs will have for you. you must take him!
Man's be harping on ma boi laxton for being tough, y'all don't know it's for your own good. Turn around and betchu he pull up with his helicopter. His desktop systems be off the rails fam. His off-grid standard 48V solar panels be THE DOPEST DIRECT CURRENT this side of the planet. But for real y'all if you get anything out of his course just remember, 10-20 millivolts is enough to kill a person! ;)
I used to have mr. Laxton in grade 9 and I hated him and thought he wasn't the devil and I was being mistreated and targeted with his mean jabs At me but my life wasn't great at the time and was the only teacher who steered me back into the path of success if you ever ask me to tell you about mr laxton is one thing tough love respect that Man.
He's a good teacher... i guess
Mr Laxton is a great teacher he is strict but knows what he is doing. He will easily change something if you are in need of a little help. He knows how to teacher and as long as you study it's not to hard.
Mr. Laxton is a kind, generous, well educated, well experienced man who only has the welfare of his students at hand. After reading many ratings, I can assume that you were poor students with your own egos because when I took his class, I definitely learned a lot. It must feel really good to get your negative comments on a website that only caters to negative students like you. I feel sorry for you. As Mr. Laxton says, "Show respect." I guess you didn't learn that message well.
Has a great teaching style. You want him as a teacher.
Does not mark you purely on what is being taught, in grade 9 programming he marks you on graphics before he tells how to do them correctly. I lost 20 marks on graphics alone. He disrespects us during class and tells too many stories that are unbelievable.
Took his classes from 9 to now (11).
He has a lot of credentials and experience (i.e. engineering @ Baxter Medical). It's a rare opportunity to learn from such qualified teachers. His style of teaching is the same throughout each unit - theory and knowledge (lectures), followed by practicals (engineering). He typically isn't viewed as "nice;" however, he does care for his students. He wants them to succeed and does more than what is required of any teacher
the class is SO easy if u study
Great Teacher truly cares about his students just follow the simple rules provided and you will have no problems with him.
Mr.Laxton is a great teacher, he always jokes around in class. he is the best teacher at Abbey by far
A lot of people say the don't like him, but if you work hard and show him you're putting in the effort, he will like you too. He's cocky, but really does know what he's talking about. Honestly loved him. The guy deserved more credit.
Very good teacher. He is very knowledgeable and knows what he is talking about. Just pay attention and you will be all good.
He is a good teacher. I enjoy his jokes and his easy teaching style.
Maan this guy is good, always help me with essays eventhough he doesnt teach english. Its like he has done every job of the world and very funny teacher and he has the best lessons! Be respectful and keen to study, u be fine.
I like that you had many careers and talk about your experiences in class. It gives me a good idea of what to expect out in the real world.
Keep talking about yourself. Makes the class more fun, and we get out of having to do work in class :P, Love your lectures (even when I'm the only one taking notes :P).
ummm... less about your wonderful careers, helicopter flying, camera shop owner, car salesman, president of some country, etc, etc, and pretend students have some intellect.
maybe needs a little anger management but overall a great teacher
Great teacher, I learned loads! Keep smiling and just do the work, listen to his stories, they're pretty interesting. He knows alot, just make sure u stay on his good side.
He was a great teacher. I like that he has worked at a lot careers.
wat are u talking about he is really helpful and a cool guy to people who are not jerks
what career HASN'T he had!? >_< Learn to be less self involved!!
You need to chill! freakin out in the hall way isnt good for your health!
Mr. Laxton is my favorite teacher! I always looked forward to his class. He made everything interesting and fun! More teachers should be like him! :)
