Best teacher I've ever had. So wise on life and growing up.Never let a student get left out. Puts in a 1000 extra hours for his students.
Over all best mechanic/ roboptics teacher, even made it to the world's cham pionship
Best teacher for shop I have ever had. Will actually listen to you if you talk to him. Some of his class is sometimes over crowed IMHO, but toher than than is great for me
Last comment learn to write english and tell the truth. Ablett rarely sits, he only has one chair near the computer and students use it way more than he ever does. All I have ever seen him do on that computer is attendance. We have a few cars to work on and our own student build drag race car. Maybe you should bring in a car, or you think the school will buy us cars to work on? He lets us pick projects and we can try things until we get them right. You got it so bad? why not speak up in class
He barly teach people in class I worked very hard for term 3 ignoring all my friends and work on my own still he gave me a low mark. How peoplensay he is a good teacher is amazing. He tells you that you have to learn to work on your own butwhenyou need help he sits there and ignore you playing games.Did he teach me? Rarly if you ask his student in person they will tell you that ablet did not even teach anything useful. I felt like i wasted time in his class and got yell constantly for no reason.
Best Teacher I ever had. Listened well, taught with patience. He gave me good life advice as well. You believed in me Mr. Ablett when my other teachers didn't see anything in my future. I appreciate it.
mr abblett taught me so much about how to work this year in mechanics. Best teacher I had
you Rock mr A our Harley riden world robot champion East Van teacher.
good teacher, if you go in at lunch will talk about just about anything and he sure knows lots but most importantly he seems to want to listen to us?!?! I like the class time alot because of the amount of experimenting we get to do.
This class is the best. We build competative robots and other cool stuff, someone is makin a giant tesla coil right now :) We did an over night tournament to Courtenay and if we qualified for the worlds we got to go to Disneyland after the competition. And when we came back there were reporters at the school cuz we had won the championships. Mr Ablett for President
Best teacher ever. Wish I had taken his classes starting in grade 9 rather than grade 12. Let's us build whatever we want all of third term and it seems the more effort you make the better your mark. The remark below about talking too much is funny (and wrong). He kinda gives these speeches to inspire us and the let's us work like 95% of the time. I look at science and technology very differently now. Thanks mr Ablett. Grad 2012 the year Gladstone came 1st AND 2nd in world robotic champs
With Mr Ablett's help we won the world VEX world Robotics Championship in April 2012. The hater two posts ago, is telling lies and half-truths. We build stuff besides robots. And it is a course about electronics or engineering, what did you think you would build? Mr A only talks to us as a group about 5 minutes max. And you only have to go to two tournaments a year, and if you cant you demo the robot before or after. He does make you sign in when your late. Crying about that is just stupid.
He is teaching us mechanics, well he is letting us learn mechanics, its very hard to explain, but I like it and I have learned more in the last two months than i did in the last 2 years.
Very insightful and always teaches something new to the students. He's also somewhat funny and never yells at you if you follow his rules.
He is my mechanix teacher. He has made it about doing things not reading old books. We are even building a race car!
he is the mechanics teacher. he is funny, he is very knowledgeable. he is super cool, and is a lot of fun....
Best robotics teacher, really fun and genuinely shows interest in his students
I was a student in his class this year and he was a really cool teacher. The tasks he requires us to do is not difficult if we put our minds to it and he gives us clear instructions.
Grad 2011 we placed 2nd in the world in Robotics at the World Championships. Thanks for everything you did for us mr. A
He gave me 100 in woodworks when i was in grade 9 and all I made was spoons and bowls.
Been in his classes for 4 years now. Took robots rather than wood cuz he dont teach that now :(
This teacher makes me work hard, even when I don't want to. But the robotics class is fun to be in, just too bad he doesn't teach woodwork anymore.
Easy teacher. Do your work you get a good mark. Hes a really smart guy. Overall good teacher!
Lets you try stuff in wood work, even if its not traditional. If you work you will get a great mark...wish that was true in a my classes
Awesome teach, spends lots of overtime for students to work on there robots. Never really ticked off, has a good temper. Jsut do your work you will get a good mark.
I had him for electronics and woodworks for two years and overall, I thought he was a slack teacher who wasn't very strict as long as you got the work done. If you try, you will get a high mark.
He makes us work, but on cool stuff. We are building robots right now.
He is an easy-going, sympathic, smart, fun, and interesting teacher. I'm in his electronics class and he teaches the stuff really well and tries to help out everyone. He also gives out easy marks!!!
hey no bbq this year?...still had fun tho. see you next year
Hes soooo smart,well not in a book smart way,in a thing smart way
I wish there were more blocks of wood working...I couldn't get in this year....argggghhhhh
Very cool!!! altho he dosent come to you all the time
He is the best of the best!! He is my best 2003-2004 teacher!!
