interesting and intuitive, best english teacher at churchill
It's a shame he's retired. One of my favourite teachers of all time. ALL TIME!
i am genuinely going to miss him and his stories. best of luck, mr. best! thanks for the fun, story-filled english classes
Over all, he's a pretty nice teacher. Great at telling stories.
Is a sick teacher when he reads he doesnt read he speaks the story as though he wrote it. He knows almost every story he reads by heart sucks at handing things back
Definitely speak up (when your entitled to), he likes to see your hand up. He is fun and he tells good storys. I always enjoy going to Mr.Bests class.
Never hands back work :( I don't know how I can improve in English
get yourself noticed, and easy A for you.
you MUST participate often in class discussions, or you can kiss your A goodbye
he's not just great.. he's the BEST lol but srsly just pay attention
Very good teacher, his name pretty much describes him. Never hands work back, but that wasn't really anything bad. Tells great stories and is a good narrator when reading the books!
His voice sounds like a broadcaster. He was the only teacher who inspired me to take Latin in university.
He really lives up to his last name. Definitely the best english teacher I've ever had.
Very helpful and so smart. Library in head? Could bring that up next time I see him.
he has interesting stories to share. he doesnt hand back assignments, and participation is key in his class.
Mr.Best is AMAZING! I think if he handed assignments back peoples heads might explode! BTW if you want to do well in his class TALK!!!! If you join in discussions and participate in class you'll get an A. Handing in homework helps too, I think he works on a completion basis only. Marking aside, you need to take his class just to be around him and try and leech some of that incredible knowlege!
His lessons are both enjoyable and rewarding. I've learned so much despite the lack of written work. However, I wish he would hand back assignments every once in a while so that we have an idea of our strengths and weaknesses in English class.
he's an AMAZING teacher... he is really nice, smart and he is really good at telling stories... I really liked it when he read "Of Mice and Men" to us...
awsome teacher~~~~knows almost everything~~~XD his classes were fun
I just finished Lit 12 and I'm SO glad I took it - Mr. Best made it a really wonderful experience, and, like somebody said before, really opens the world of literature for his students. He's a cool guy, funny, warm, patient, and yes - a walking encyclopedia (almost to a scary extent at times!) - but you can learn so much from him if you pay attention in his. Sometimes he goes off track, but it's all good - and be sure to raise your hand alot if you want a good mark, because he's somewhat old-fashioned :)
absolutely lives up to his name...the BEST english teacher i have ever had...his wide knowledge of so many things astounds me and makes his class a very enjoyable one
hahaa awesome. not much work to do cept talk (= and we usually get off topic!
Mr. Best was one of the most amazing teachers that I have ever had. After going to university and entering the "real world" - it makes you think back on highschool and consider who made that part of your life so special. Mr. Best opens up the world of literature to his students, and teaches in a way that keeps you interested. Both my older brother and myself were lucky enough to be in his classes. Some teachers are forgettable, some teachers make you never forget. Thanks, Mr. Best.

He's great at telling stories! Usually has a pretty good temper and is very easy going. Really nice and understanding but often goes off topic with his speeches. You'll learn a lot of different stuff if you stay awake in his class.
probably one of the best teachers i had all high school! smarter than any socials teacher i had and he taught english. amazingly smart! and he shoots air rifles! if you can make sure you get him!
So cool....he actually teaches us useful stuff for the future, and he takes us on field trips, and he lets us play games andwatch reasonable movies....

A great teacher. Raise your hand and offer opions a lot. Since you dont do much work, that'll be the easy way into getting an A. GOOD LUCK :D
Good teacher, talks a lot, and not some stupid things, they are always useful... like him a lot
COOL teacher with a even cooler background. few tests but alot of in class discussion
so far so good only problem is he immeadiatly shoots down ur answer if its not the exact word hes thinking of
really nice, but he doesn't really give you a chance to upgrade your marks, and theres alot of talking in his class, no real work, but the class is always alot of fun.
his is the one class i can't wait to go to! he shows a real passion for what he teaches, and he's so knowledgable that he teaches us so much more than just english-
He's a good teacher overall. But i'm pretty sure he doesn't bother to mark homework/tests because we never get them back. A friend of mine asked to see her marks because she got a C+. He immediately boosted her to a B without showing her the marks.
More than just a teacher.Great storyteller, walking encyclopedia (meant as a compliment), and helpful person in general (warm and understanding attitude, etc.)...the list goes on.One of the handful of teachers at Churchill that can actually answer questions outside of course material (but nevertheless somewhat related), teach (duh), and keep you awake for a whole hour and a half(a feat accomplished by only the 1337est of true teachers).Would also make a fantastic history teacher in the place of Jeffe-*oops*
He has a wide knowlege from Simpsons to nearly rocket science!!! He knows how to handle diffcult situations and he is very understanding. Overall,he is the best teacher in the school!
Really cool teacher. Learned alot from him. unlike other teachers, his impression counts for alot. never gives any homework, never gives back tests. GREAT story teller. the best in the school
not sure if hes still teaching since i already graduated... but he was a very good teacher. i had him in gr11, so mayb hes different now. but while i was in his class, we had next to no homework, we wrote a few essays, and did some projects. i think the marks were mostly based on his impression... i did well, but i've heard that some ppl didnt so... he should be a university prof tho lol, i didnt get any notes. he knows his stuff^^ fun class!
my class always goes off topic and into stories =] but we never gto our tests back yeet...
lol frequently offtopic but will help if you ask him
Mr Best = Tha Best. Amazing teacher and has really interesting stories, unlike Mr Jefferson ;)
Mr.Best is a better story-teller than Mr.Jefferson. And he is humourous.
He's basically the best teacher. He doesn't give a lot of homework and he explains very clear. Forgets to hand us back our work though.
Mr. Best is so cool. At first he may seem scary but he's hilarious y'all! Seriously, u'll have fun and u'll learn
he's so kewl! lol he's okie, he gives us hmw but not very hard and tere is lots of time where there is no hmw at all.
He does not hand back our work 95% of the time. And god knows how he gived us our term marks.
Really good at teaching, but he doesn't base the marks we get on a lotta valid assignments...
best teacher ive ever had. what a character.ive learned more in his class than in any english class cause hes so good and simply cause i like him.
Very nice teacher. Very Descriptive in all details and his reading is just "wow". I think I got the Best of the BEST!!!... lol
Mr. Best is the BEST! There in no better english teacher!
one of the BEST teacher ever! a lil odd sometimes...but SUPER nice, and all. altho he should hand back all the stuff we handed in...but still a nice guy
He never hands back our homeworks and essays. Surprise marks every term. Gave me barely a B in 2 terms for no reason.
nice guy. know's sOO much about english!he's like..a living encyclopedia for english ahah and he doesn't give many test..
Good teacher, but he should hand assignments back to students once and a while
Always helpful. He understands and is passionate about his subject and it shows. If only he could be my teacher.
He's my favorite English...and everything teacher ever. Always there to help.
Good teacher.. however, I believe he should teach his students grammar and writing, too.
Mr.Best lives up to his name. I feel bad that most people don't appreciate the extent of his knowledge. He should be teaching in a university.
good lit/eng teacher. he can speak norse or sumthing haha!
easy teacher....i just wish we get our assignments back once in a while
knowledgeable, nice, told good stories, but did he mark our assignments?
Very cool, but..he never hands any thing back!! But he's so nice, hard tests~
Not all of us are poets and writers and you have to take that into view
Digresses a lot, but his digressions are interesting.
very fast pace, odd jokes. drops your worst mark(nice). hard tests
