Don't know how else to say this but, he's really something else. Besides the fact that he can get carried away at times trying to answer a question, he is the most amazing, comprehensive teacher I've met. Really made me feel special, and has a whole lot of charisma. Needs to stop leaving the class so often though
To everyone who wants an honest rating. Mr. Janz is a teacher who rates high on being funny and sociable but when it comes to tests or even asking him questions he is either not there or he is out of class doing, who knows what. Whenever we have had any of our tests. He has never mentioned them. Whenever you see a substitute teacher is when he gives out tests, it is almost as if he doesn't want to deal with our questions by putting it in substitutes hands. Overall he is a 2.5 on 5.
He is a great teacher, very funny and made class enjoyable. I worked my entire schedule around taking his class. He was the best English teacher I ever had. He even helped me on essays that weren't for his class!

Very reasonable and knowledgeable teacher, allows late assignments, very funny in a cunning way
Janz is so awesome. Very approachable and knowledgeable. He's pretty chill if you don't talk when he's talking and will do his very best to make sure that you understand. He is also really funny, pretty dry sense of humour but he'll make you want to pay attention. If you can get him as a prof, you should do that.
If you participate in his class you get a lot more out of it (his feedback is great). He really knows his stuff and gets it across in a way that most understand. As long as you don't talk while he is talking he is pretty chill. I went in his class with a 50's mark and now I am in the 70's possibly 80's after the diploma. If you go to St.Mary's try to get him as an English teacher.
He's The man, but he just wastes too much time explaining abstract concepts and we get lost in the reasoning.
My daughter brings home assignments with inconsistent marking and no explanation as to why marks were lost. Apparently does not teach in class and does not keep up the marking on the computer site
Made English fun last year, but no English was really accompished. I found myself unprepared for English 20 IB and it was because of lack of teaching.
BE CAREFUL! Doesnt know how to present himself to students, has no conception of boundaries and student-teacher relations. Treats unsuspecting impressionable teenagers too kindly, gives strong words, be careful and don't believe what he says to you
WOW! This guy is the single coolest teacher I have EVER had! He made a subject that had seemed boring up until now, cool, fun informative, and involving all at the same time. Mr. Janz is SO AWESOME!!!!!!
My hero. The best man I've ever had the privlege of knowing, not just because of his teaching abilities. Easy going, EXTREMELY approachable, kind, funny...makes English comfortable and safe. Easy to talk to about absolutely anything.
Absolutely magnificent. Taught my favourite subject and for the first time, didn't butcher it. Amazing to talk to, I'm very comfortable around him - really cool
The very BEST teacher i have ever had.. i love english because of that guy, i can express my opinions, ask for help and just talk to him.. absolutely amazing
