Mr. Staines is one of my favourite science teachers by far. His lessons are interesting and engaging, and he's always available for extra help. He is quite easygoing and not a difficult marker, so long as you study and keep up with assigned homework.
Best science teacher you'll have. Is usually available for extra help. Tries to help you do your best.
He and Mr. Key are the best teachers I've ever had at Ross. He drills everything into your head so well because he explains everything so clearly so you can understand. Would love to have him again.
honestly one of the best teachers I've had at ross! such a nice teacher and so helpful
He's a great teacher, one of my favourite! He makes everything interesting and easy to understand! :D
He was the greatest science teacher. He was so clear with his lessons and concepts. Not a totally hard marker, but challenges you to do your best. By far the best science teacher at the school.
He's really funny and makes bio interesting
Absolutely fantastic teacher-he is very good at delivering the course content! Because of him, I realized just how much I love biology. He truly sets a standard for how teachers should be. 250 characters is not enough to describe how good he is.
Mr Staines is a great and knowlegeble teacher. I never failed a test or a quiz in his class. He encourage people to do well. When we came to him and ask him questions, he is always willing to help.
Makes class interesting and explains the material very well.
He is one of the best teachers I have ever had. He sets standards for what a good teacher should actually be.
good teacher that really does want everyone to do well.
very good teacher explains all work well and respets that you are mature and does not harass you to get extra help. Quizs are harder and longer than other classes but will help you with tests, exams
A very good teacher if you are ready to learn, he is ready to teach you.
He really is a great teacher! He explaines stuff very well, and uses good analogies. Although he tends to be very repetitive, it makes things stick in your head. A very fair marker too. Good teacher!
Good teacher.. Boring subject.. Sometimes complicated seemingly easy concepts (I was talking about non-bonding electron pairs when we were discussing hydrogen bonding in water. GJ!
awesome teacher, never gets angry and if your on a sports team he'll let you catch up on the stuff you missed and if you missed the test on the thursday he'll let you write it on monday. good at explainign stuff too
Stains was amazing his lessons were fun and his impressions were priceless. Very smart to..
awsome teacher!!he made grade 9 science interesting and i learned alot from him in that class. explains things well and always there for extra help!
Oh my gosh, I had the biggest crush on Mr Staines when I was there. I liked science already, but he made it totally cool. Now I'm in university and taking bio classes...thanks Stainsey!!
AMAZING TEACHER loved science cuz of him...rele smart...talked a lot but was fun to listen to...funny guy...favourite science teacher ever
I actually enjoyed science this year...mr.Staines is the best!
SO SMART! One time I saw him explaining something and writing down something different on the board- at the same time! He knows what he's doing. I love Biology because of him!
He undrestands and know what he is talking about...my favourite science teacher ever.
My best science techer EVER! He Rocks because of what he knows and teaches
BEST TEACHER EVER!! Man he knows what he's talking about and makes you understand to. His tests push you but he teaches so well that you know everything!
Has an amazing teacher style/personality. Very unusal in a physics teacher.
Great teacher. Knows what he is teaching inside and out and is great at helping students who want it
Stainesy!! Very cool and funny. His tests are hard and you to keep up with the homework, btu he is a really good teacher. Always around for extra help.
Great teaching style!! (used a lot of simpsons/ seinfeld analogies!!)
uses james bond to teach physics. what else do you need to know? staines is cool
Staines knows what he is talking about! He's tough but you'll leave the class with a sense of what is going on in the scientific world if you listen. He is definitly the reason I stuck with biology!
one of the smartest people I know and definitly one of the best teachers at Ross
has an obvious passion for teaching and does a great job.
High energy and passionate. Went out of his way to spark us.
Anyone who can make physics fun disvers props. plus he cares and we can tell.
