Such an amazing teacher and is definitely one of my favourites. It's a shame he's retiring though, I'm gonna miss him.
One of the greatest teachers I've ever had.
Such a great teacher! Mr. Hopkins has really prepared me for university and if you're willing to put in extra work he will do everything to help your mark! Hard class, great preparation!
Amazing teacher. Very few like him left. Hard but realistic when it comes to school work, always tells it how it is without the bullsh*t. No teacher will prepare you for uni,college, or whatever you're doing as well as him. Knows what he's doing and never hesitates to offer extra help.
OH MY GOD nice teacher, knows his stuff but hard marker!!! his exams are so hard!
Makes history incredibly interesting! Makes grade 12 a joy :) West and the World has been my favourite course in the whole four years I was at Banting.
One of the best teachers at Banting. Actually prepares you for post-secondary, and makes the funniest jokes. I'd tap that ;)
Currently at Western, thought I'd drop by to say that Mr.Hopkins is the only teacher (other than Mr.Needles and Mr.Stein) that will ever teach you anything of value that will help you in university.
wow, everyone really loved the card method... Good teacher, learn alot of important stuff, Extremely insane hard marker, beyond reasonability imho though.
I'm in my first year of university now and I really believe that although his classes were tough, he was the only teacher that really taught the skills that you need in post-secondary.
I am in 3rd year Uni and I have never gotten <80% on a paper! THANK YOU for the card method! He is the only teacher teaches you skills you need to succeed after high school.
Very hard but fair marker. Now in 4th year History at University, I have never got below 75 on an essay, got 88 on a 4th year essay. Card method works, teaches history like a Prof.
One of the hardest teachers at Banting, but also one of the best. He can be sort of a mean guy once in a while though, so watch out you don't get on his bad side. He prepares you for University!
Works the students very hard but in the end it just prepares us for later events. The card system works!
Ancient Civ is such a hard course but it's really fun!
Had you at Saunders in the 80's & your one teacher I really miss. Maby i'll come by the school to say hello one day.
Although I was complaining when I was at Banting, looking back his methods prepared me for university more then any other class. His essay writing method works
He totally prepared me for university.. I get 80s on my essays now, because of his card method!
He's a cool guy, very active in the school and willing to help you and make sure you understand. He's a bit tough, but you know you're prepared if you do well.
Very knowledgeable teacher....Knows whats going on...a very WISE person..
Hilarious. He is a cool guy, but his Int.Law class is pretty tough. Overall a really good teacher.
Really hard, but really helpfull, if you're going to university you'll want to take a course with him to prepare you...what's with the star trek though?
Probably the hardest teacher at Banting... he really makes you work for your 60
