Never wanted to help, always on phone calls during class, not very nice at all, i have no idea why there are people saying "he's the best teacher you'll ever have" when in reality hes not that good of a teacher
He will be the best math teacher any student will ever have. If you are complaining about him chances are you were just lazy in his class. He's amazing. He truly loves his job and is there to teach. He always gives his time for you to finish tests and get extra help. I wish I had him again! Great amazing teacher
hes an awesome teacher. a lot of the people on the site are not quite right. I am a current student of his. So far nothing is bad. he tries to help and that's what matters.
I was just told about this site by another parent and I am appalled by the easiness that a teacher can be attacked. I know this teacher and he has taught 2 of my kids. He is a wonderful caring person who works hard at his job. My kids have greatly benefited from his dedication to the classroom. Oh by the way he is a great coach too. Shame on those kids and adults who wish to attack someone behind closed doors.
A+ He makes me laugh
He is strick but very fair. I had hm now for 2 years. He is the only teacher that I actually do something in his class. Those that rate him badly are usually the people who do nothing in his class.
Time to consider retiring Sir or admitting yourself to the Royal Ottawa for some serious mental rehab.
He's a horrible teacher. He is unprofessional and the amount of times I've heard "he needs to be fired" is overwhelming. obviously, I'm not the only one who hates him.
He is a really hard teacher, but helps a lot!
I've had Rick Despatie this is the 2 year and all this rude comments are just mean. And not true at all he is a nice teacher not the best I've had but hes not terrible. I just wish he would explain the work better.
He is a good teacher
He's a great teacher, and he goes out of his way to help students. He is strict I must say. But overall, he is one of the best math teachers I've had yet.
I don't like him he spends more time coaching then teaching
he is ok so far but every one of my friends who had him last year said he was mean and he makes people stay in on the weekend if they forger their homework once. it is only the third week of school so i am not sure how he is yet.
RICK IS DA BOMB,HE GOT A BIG BRAIN!! LOVE YOU RICK,YOU DA BEST!!!!! :D
Just came across this site. Some comments are mean spirited and not accurate at all. He is a very good teacher. Strict but fair. Always there to help.
I saw some comments below which were ridiculous. Those who don't like him tend to be those who get in trouble with him.
hes a good coach and his teaching should use less technology
I don't like him he's really mean but he can be a great teacher sometimes
AS one of his students this year i would say he is a great math teacher but he is mean and very strict but also funny
Very fair and is very strict and if don't listen you will have some trouble. Generally people who don't listen don't like him
Worst teacher I had ever in my history of going to school!!
I am impressed with his basketball program and how school plays a most important role before sports. He is very out going and willing to help any time of day. Very committed.
He is a strict teacher yet he is still a good teacher
he's mean a lot of the time he's a good science teacher tho......2 much homewrok
heh- mr.D what a guy. always got me in trouble and gave me detentions... Always told me why i couldnt be as good a student as my bro. not very nice sir :(
you know that there's something wrong when all anyone can say was he was a good b ball coach!... isnt he a math teacher?
He gives everyone an equal chance to do well. He leaves it up to you if you will succeed or not. SO just do your homework!
Man! dont Hate on Mr. D! GREATEST BALL COACH EVER! Rock on Sir!!!
