I was in his Graphics class'es almost every year during my high school. I also took AP art history with him in Gr 12. Mr. Aird is a truly wonderful teacher; he has inspired ME to become a teacher! He is the kind of teacher I want to be... funny, gentle, and caring. He has now retired but his son is a teacher also! Big shoes to fill!

this guy's the best art teacher i've had, he's nice and he's got a sense of humor. He actually makes sense too unlike some teachers. the only problem is that his mad tone is the exact same as his normal talking tone so you never know when he's actually mad.....

Mr. Aird must be one of the nicest teachers in the whole school. He's clear on his instructions, and is ready to help a student at any time. All he does is ask for your attention. He's a good man.

He really knows his stuff. His lectures are some of the best in all of the AP classes at North. If you can, take his Art Hist. class. It ranks alongside Roberts/McPhee/Turnbull in quality!
