He's changed my life and helps you realize more about the world you're in and helps you turn into a better human being. If you are sad and having a bad day, he goes out of his way to help you he is my favourite teacher and one of the most whole hearted human beings I have ever met. I highly recommend him.
Parkes is the BEST teacher at Northern by far. He teaches in a fun and interesting way answering every question and teaching many useful skills for post-secondary life. He changed the way I think and made me have a reason to get up and go to school.
Mr parks is like no other teacher. He teaches you perspective and how screwed up this world really is, which literally no student understands until being in his class. He brings alive the pain and awfulness of what is going on in this world, and how we are controlled by propaganda. We are the ones who need to make a change.
He is such an awesome teacher. Funny. And I miss just wasting time in class listening to his bizarre stories. like the headless chicken story. classic!
I would like to point out that there is two different mr parkes at our school: the music one and the history one. This forum was very confusing until I realized the mix up :P Music parkes is AMAZING!
I absolutely can't stand him... It would be sweet if he could actually play his own instrument and keep some time. It's rediculously easy though.
Even though his classes are easy and not strict, his course content is relatively too easy. You will need to rely on WAY MORE than what he teaches you for post-secondary education.
Hesus Parkes! Wow, what an influential man. Graduated almost 5 years ago.. and were still talking about him. Thanks for the great memories, fun.. and of course knowledge. Hope all is well. Peace.
best class all year! we sat around and ate while he complained about the government. it was awsome. oh, and we watched random violent movies. Loved the yoga he did during our tests too.
the funniest sense of humor! and his story's were hilarious and made art class amusing, best art/history teacher everr! hes awesome!
BEST teacher at northern! his class was so fun, didnt care when we fooled around. watched a lot of movies too :) great teacher.

mr parkes is amaizing, he is a beautiful trumpet player, and his sarcastic humour makes it easy to be in a class with him, or instructed by him in band. he makes every aspect of music a fun learning experience. I <3 PARKES

He might be short but he's made a gigantic impact on my life. He takes the geekyness outta being a music teacher. Somehow he managed to remain completely cool the entire semester.
