I'll always have mixed feelings about Tim. Having taken 2 choir courses and 2 philosophy courses, I can say that I didn't learn anything about philosophy or learn how to sing. However, sitting and listening to his life stories and lessons he learnt was definitely the highlight of my day. I never dreaded going to his class.
I just wish Tim got to know all of his students. I know he always says we have to come speak to him, but some of us are just shy.
Intro to logic and reason is by far the easiest class ive ever taken, you show up ever class and talk and know what youre talking about and you get an A, but I learned almost nothing the entire year. If you want to have fun, dont ever straight up disagree with him, branch from his thinking a bit, but even when he's wrong or says something and then says the exact opposite the next class(happened about 7-10 times my class) dont point it out or he'll through you directly under the bus
Only a few good teachers in David Thompson, so grab the chance to sit in his philosophy class before he is exposed as the ancient goblin he is.
Unlock his catchphrases as you sit through and level up in his class.
-"after a fashion"
He always brings his wife and his dog to school and Franklin is the cutest thing. HIS CLASS ARE THE BBBBBBEBEEEEEEESSSSSSSTTTT
Tim is an excellent teacher. He kept me in school and inspired me to be what I am. You guys are sad to think otherwise.
He's a great teacher, and gives great advice. I had some troubles and he gave me some advice that really helped. His choir class is really chill. If you ever get him for philosophy, just remember to ask questions or contribute in class and it'll be a mark booster. :D
Makes you think about everything in a different perspective, but if you are to fully understand his class, you will probably be afraid for a short period of time, but eventually you will find your new self in the darkness.
He will teach you how to live a happy life.
He is a wonderful teacher, fixed on his opinions. He is the only teacher who I actually agree with and do not dislike at all. I would encourage to take his philosophy class.
No one else will open your mind, help you see things from a more unique and realistic perspective, or force you out of your comfort zone quite as much as Tim, all things that I'll always be grateful for. Don't expect to learn any testable knowledge or facts, but if you're willing to make an effort, you'll come away from his clases more adventurous, thoughtful, with a more open mind and the ability to either singing, play guitar, or watch movies well. I liked the movies and singing most :)
Tim is probably one of the most truthful teachers at the school, if not slightly opinionated. I aspire to be able to throw shade as well as he does when I'm his age. Tips for choir... In his class, you either do things his way, or don't do it at all.
Had him when he was still at Temp. Absolutely the best teacher ever.
Best teacher ever. Enough said. Everyone student that ever goes to David Thompson Secondary should have a class with him. If you don't, you'll have missed out pretty badly.
He's one of the best teachers I've ever met at DT. I learned how to sing in front of everyone, play the guitar, and some philosophy from him. I can't thank him enough for what he's done for me and I really, really hope he'll be around for the long run. His blunt personality makes the best out of every situation. Just saying that he is by far one of the best teacher at DT. =)
Tim isnt just the best teacher Ive ever had, he's also the most interesting individual Ive ever come across. He knows what we REALLY need to be taught, and if it was possible, I would love it if he could teach every single one of my subjects. He understands how to get peoples interest (at least those who care) and has a lot of knowledge and life experience to offer people in his classes. Be sure to pay attention and you'll actually learn worthwhile life lessons, unlike the rest of highschool.
he is an amazing teacher! very interesting i learn alot from Tim! love his classes! BEST TEACHER AT DT!
As much as I love Tim as an educator, sometimes he tends to contradict with himself... which isn't wrong with anything! I mean, it IS philosophy we're talking about. Deep subject.
You Learn a lot in his Philosophy class...sadly many people are just looking at their hands or texting all class. A very intelligent man.
The best teacher I've had in high school so far. I love his random deep, philosophical discussions, jokes, and his understanding of what we really need to be taught in life.
Tim is one of the best teachers I've ever had! He's certainly the best I've had in high school. I love all of his random philosophical discussions and jokes. He also gives 100% to everyone in choir!
to the people who are saying tim doesn't teach and he's just talking, you're wasting HIS time because everything he's teaching is going over your heads.
Tim has alot to offer ppl. I have him in choir and its like having philosphy and choir at the same time, which is a nice bonus. Almost all his classes are easy A's for the ppl who care for that only.
The BEST teacher, ever! He's been my favourite teacher ever since grade 8, and honestly, I'll probably even remember him a decade from now just 'cause he's so darn amazing (:.
He's an intellectual who allows you to pursue your own motives. If you wanna learn something, ask. He does not care for students who dont care. He does talk but his ideas are interesting to discuss.
tim is awsome! he is so dpwn to earth! like, what teacher lets you call them by thier first name. or swear when its appropreate? tim is really cool and i like him alot!! cool guy!
I have him for choir, he's a funny guy. His lectures can be interesting, I've learned quite a bit about music and other stuff. Definitely a "different" teacher, but cool.
even tho it doesnt seem like he teach, i learned quite a lot from him talking and from watching his videos. (he doesnt believe in homework) lol had him in gr 8- nice teacher
He's a funny guy, but doesnt really teach well. That's my opinion. But anyway, we watch a lot of movies. xD
Mr. Tim (trombone star) Skeldon is a first-rate, if somewhat difficult, teacher/music instructor. In his early music career, around the time period that Tim played lead trombone in the world-famous North Vancouver Youth Band, he was considered by most to be a major talent who would go on in life to do great and wonderful things (according to my sources). Accompanying his tremendous musical ability is a demand to his pupils for nothing less than excellence. DT students should be proud to...
he is so cool and should teach all of my classes. he is smart and helpful.
Oh man, i love this guy. I've only had two classes with him so far, but i love his lectures and speaches. I am definately going to continue taking this class, and possibly take his Philosophy 11 class next year.
tim pulled off an awesome rock concert with a few of his students which formed into a tight knit band from what i observed. bravo on a job well done! rock on! and as a teacher, tim is awesome, i learnt so much more about life in his classroom than i did anywhere else. thanks!
hes the best teacher ever! he makes me laugh so much...adn hes teaches me more stuff about life than any other teacher. he goes off topic..but i dont mind..it aways leads into something really interestin
he's very helpful, in all kind of things, of course , mainly music, but also he teaches about life, in a cool way
he is the coolest teacher ever!! i think he should be principal of dt. he would make it really cool. i also like his lectures. they are all true. he is also really funny.
he's awesome ,he should teach all my classes cuz he is so cool
he is really cool and his class rocks ,he doesnt make us worry about grades for once and he lets us watch movies overall he is the coolest teacher ever
so kool, even tho only had him as a sub, so straight forward and funny
He's awesome! If think about what he rants about, you'd realize that he has a right to think highly of himself, because he's not only an excellent teacher, but also a great person
hes the best teacher in the world! ive never met a cooler teacher..hes so down to earth and talks about interesting stuff
He likes music. Lots of music. All kinds of Music. Even Rap. But music isn't all he likes. He likes sports too. I think. Maybe even the thing we call basketball.
not my favourite teacher but hes okay. his movies are disturbing lol =/
hes so cool and so nice he respects all your ideas and thoughts hes da best teacher in da world!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! and da best part iz we alwayz watch movies!!!!!!:P
He talks too much about his life and stories that he tells students EVERY term.. He's VERY annoying and fakely smiles at u after u skip his class.
Very cool, gets sidetracked a lot though. Talks too much. About himself.
HE'S A WISE MAN, but kindda self-centred....things too high of himself.....uses big words only he knows ( maybe he doesn't even know...?)......sometimes he talk like a hour non-stop....boring.....but fun+enjoyable for the most of the times....
I THINK THIS GUY S AWESOME. Im in his BLK B class for '05, he does talk a lot, but if you listen, it tends to be less boring
he's KEWL but he really TALKS a LOTTTTTT... somertimes he's weird but funny though
i have him for guitar. hes pretty nice and cool, has some personality to him. hes really friendly and is actaully really really smart.. but i heard he kinda suked for english. he would b a good councellor for the school, hes already one somewhere else.
skeldons the best do nothin but talk in his class best english class eevr allt eh other english teachers lik ballz
Tim is an awsome teacher. That's all there is to say.
Mr.Skeldon is an awsome teacher. I've learned alot from him,and he has an awsome sense of humor. He is the best teacher I've evr had. ~guitar and Choir~
Love his choir class XD He's a great teacher and the things he talks about in class are actually interesting and educational XD he gives inspiration for english
He used 2 be cool but as yrs pass he has been going down he tells us that if we find his class boring then its our fault well not tru he doesnt answer my q's :(
One of the coolest teachers in school!! He's a GREAT conversationalist & not at all boring!!!
by remembering the advice he talked on and on about during my grade 8 capp class, i now have hope to live on to the next day; thanks mr. skeldon =)
he's very cool, and when he does all that talking he's talking about important things, i've learned more from him than any other teacher i've ever had
I don't like this guy. He is a lame o. So boring. And he just talks about nothing all day and it doesn't have anything to do with music. My goodness, he is lame
MY FAVORITE TEACHER FROM ALL THE YEARS I HAVE BEEN IN SHCOOL!!!!
He's nice and everything but he's really scary sometimes. I mean when he's angry he's calm. ??????????? HELP????????????
He is the best! He's a musician, an author, counciler and a teacher. He gave us(tech crew) all his change(10$) to go buy junk food for dinner!(@music festival)
This guy is the best teacher that anyone could ever get the chance to learn music from. He's not at my school anymore, but Mr. S, I miss u!!!!!
NEVER HAD HOMEWORK AND ALL WE DO IS WATCH MOVIES!!!!!
Great teacher!!! Very nice!!! He's my fine arts teacher. I've never touched a pencil/pen or any school supplies in his class! All about fun!
