My favorite teacher of all time. I can understand why some might say he's a bad teacher but I would say that he pushes students to become better artists. He's one of the kindest teachers at ND and will respect you if you respect him.

I have the pleasure of knowing Mr. Mendes through the music department. He is very skilled in his instrument the steel pan. My child has found a love and admiration for this teacher and the instrument. The opportunity given to my child to learn his native instrument gives me a feeling of gratitude and hence, he is teaching me our native instrument the "steel pan" Thank you from the bottom of my heart.

He's a pretty good teacher. One thing I dislike about him is that he never tells us what to study for the tests! And we get too many projects.... oh well.

Mr. Mendes is a great art teacher. Because of him I started to really appreciate art. I'm really glad I had him for the classes I did. I only wish I could have him for Gr. 12.

Mr. Mendes is a good teacher. He gives a lot of work, but it pays off. He gives detail about art and corrects it hard. His criticism can be harsh, but you need it... Yeah..

Mr. Mendes is a great teacher! I know many may feel that 'too many restrictions' makes art boring, but that isn't true. The more restrictions there are, the more creative you have you to be. I think Mr. Mendes has it right.

Great teacher, one of my favorites. He is very understanding, and is a hard marker but he pushes his students to be the best they can be.

Thinks he is cool but he's not. He really does only like "his art". He played the same jazz songs throughout every class...& they wernt even good.

I had this interesting idea for one of my assignments that he gave me once- and it followed every guideline. But he said if I did it he wouldn't like it, so I'd get a bad mark.
