Interesting man, little patience for foolishness. If you do your homework and pay attention in class you will do very well.
A very geeky and knowledgeable character with a fondness for science. Can occasionally come across as excessive with his humor, and I have witnessed many an instance where his intended fun and drama edges toward safety violations in the science lab. Interesting personal anecdotes, but out of passion he occasionally lets his F-bombs leak. Generally decent clarity, but I would appreciate a somewhat warmer and more welcoming demeanor. Simply put, hilarious but needs to grow up at times. 3 out of 5.
He's a great personality, just be sure to admit your mistakes and tell him what he wants to hear. Don't make excuses.
Mr. Payne is a great teacher. I have read some other reviews about him making fun and picking on students. This happened in my class until it was brought to his attention. He sat us down and gave us this speech about how sorry he was, and how he never meant to hurt anyone. He's not a jerk, he's quite the opposite, and if you have a problem, bring it up to him, he will fix it so it never happens again.
Don't be so quick to judge him, he's actually a really kind man.
He knows what he's talking about and shows great dedication and gives great advice in subjects even not science related. Tends to not cover every category smoothly e.g some in depth, some in general.
He's okay. decent teacher, not very understanding of how boring and easy chem can be to some people, could do to be less of hard ****. Though he seems to try pretty hard and care about his job.
Mr. Payne is AMAZING. He's funny and sarcastic, which always makes the class enjoyable. At the same time, he explains everything in detail and makes sure that you get it. Always makes for an interesti
Always jokes around but teaches what we need to learn! :)
awsome teacher! makes his lessons interesting. the jokes and sarcasem are funny as long as you dont take it to heart. He really wants you to do well :)
He's always been nice to me, but I can't stand the way he treats some students; it's absolutely awful. For that reason, I can't respect him. Chem went from favourite to least fav class in 2 months.
He's great, but he really cares about the class, and if you give up he'll hunt you down. He really doesn't accept bail. But he is great, teaches well
GREAT teacher. He helped me get back in my studies when I was falling behind. He truely believes in you and helps you untill you understand. Best teacher ever. I had him 3 years in a row.
amazing man, teacher, everything! he puts complicated chemistry terms and concepts into easy to understand high school students lives...i would never have passed without him! much love your way mike!
Funny teacher but don't want to get pick by him. lol
i wish i could take gr11 chemistry again. it was sooooo good
worst teacher. Made chemistry the most boring and unbearable class at ESA. Tries too hard to be cool and singles out students for no reason.
i loooooooooooooooove mr payne.such a good teacher..and really funny
I love Mr.Payne! he's super cool and funny and teaches really well. He's awsome!
his jokes are just getting annoying now, some make me laugh but other times its annoying. just teach us thought i respect him for trying to make class fun.
I have never seen my daughter so upset over a teacher at school. She has lots of friends who all hate mr. payne too. It's a great school, but why is he there?
such a great teacher. he cares if you understand and will help you if you dont. pretty funny too. but could leave some room to be nicer to students
actually such an amazing teacher. he really has a creative approach to chemistry and makes the class so interesting. i love him!!
Funny guy, horrible teacher. Sometimes goes too far with a joke. Sends people out way too often - obviously that method isn't working. Science was my favourite subject before him. Now I hate it.
Effective and creative teaching methods. Gets everyone involved. Likes funny people best. If your not funny, he's not really interested. Still, has taught me a LOT.
i think hes an amazing teacher and i love science unlike i would if he ddint teach it, and he does help me if i need it .but sometimes he needs to treat students with a bit more respect.
I think I'd like him as a person more than a teacher. I couldn't really seperate what was supposed to be serious work and teaching from jokes. But he tries to make class fun, not his fault I hate chem
mr. payne! its now the end of year and we honestly have to say that you have been our favourite teacher this year. Thanks so much and see you in tokyo for that class trip! Have a great summer!
ahh payne.... so friggin hilarious. great teacher for chem. always put an interesting and fun twist on teaching keep up the good work. but its true awkward to get extra help from:S
madre me laugh tons last year. intimidating tho. scary when provoked:( cool teacher tho.
ahhhhahahah mr. payne you make science alot of fun. keep on bringing the jokes:)
ahhh mr. paynes great. hes so random yet makes learning so fun.
awesome guy makes learning fun....personally i think you should do more of those one-man skits
u guys r nuts! he's an amazing teacher, one of my favourites! he finds the coolest ways to teach and u learn a lot. plus he can be hilarious. im so lucky i got him this year!
love the teaching Mr. P! I like your "awkward funny" responses to students.. sometimes.. but keep in mind to me and others it can sometimes be hurtful :(.... yes.
Really funny in class but impossible to talk to if you need help... kinda weird..
Payne.... you're a good teacher but why are you so mean to me. You are really akward to have a conversation with. You look at me funny and throw things at me.
He's cool...but he..like..i dunno...he doesnt really help..
Probably one of the best teachers i've ever had...he knows how to keep teenagers attention and puts "FUN" into learning(who thought that could ever be possible)
how can people NOT like this guy?! Jumping contests rule! you have a great mix of fun and learning in your class. good job!!!!!
I thought he was a great teacher, really funny. I think I would have had a better time in the class if I paid attention and got a good mark :/
Payne, you rock!!!But it is imposible to talk to you one on one.Keep up the great work.
too much favouritism...wierd relationship with students...can't talk one on one
HE IS THE GREATEST TEACHER EVER!! He makes learning fun, and you learn alot! LOVE YOU PAYNEY
Funny Stuff! Standing on the desk upside down like Superman was only funny the 1st time, but the ice throwing (out of no where) was a treasured momment.
pretty cool guy but he should help students who need it more. possibly put learning before his jokes.
He WAS so good but it's like he's given up...he's a smart guy but distracted now by Music Theatre.
Mr.Payne is a good science teacher, he makes things really easy to understand. He's a funny guy who acts like a kid but he also makes fun of his students.
paynster! great, but sometimes puts jokes too much before learning...
fine fine, fine, but i sometimes get the impression that he is trying to trick us, and laughs later...
Funniest techer at ESA, but moves too quickly through the text.
Tends to go a little fast to fully grasp the main ideas of the chapters.
He's very funny, almost annoyingly sometimes. Good teacher, very smart.
