I love Kontewicz dearly but as far as being a teacher I am not so sure about it. She knows a lot in math but with her accent, its hard to understand her sometimes but if you need help she will gladly pull up a chair and help you out, but one thing is she does not know how to control a classroom and everyone just walks in an out of the place like a store.
Kontewicz couldn't teach me for money. I almost failed because of her and I'm a math nerd. She's kind of nice but is hard to understand. I rather have Mr. Johnson
An excellent teacher. He constructs very well organized and well thought out lessons. He is also very good at explaining concepts, this primarily due to his extensive knowledge in mathematics. The world needs more teachers like him. He's a very genuine person and will help you out as much as he can.
She always explains lessons you dont understand. You can cheet in her class and she wont even care.
Very helpful. Had him or Advance Functions and is easily one of Pocock's finest. He took off a lot of the seriousness of Gr. 12 and made Advance Functions a blast. He's very knowledgeable, and extremely cunning (Chess). Math in grade 12 was very fun because of the two teachers that teach it.
I love this teacher, he may have been my favorite teacher at this school. He really cares about all his students, and takes the time to make sure everyone's okay, its a shame that he's retiring soon, if only more teachers could be as respectable and good at teaching as this man!
She can't control her students, or maybe I could say that her students are uncontrollable. I think that sounds better. She could teach, only if the students would shut their mouths and listen, which not even a very few do.<br><br>Hopefully she would be able to teach better without any biases.
She's a really nice person, but she's not a good teacher, I've been teaching myself the units because she's just not a great teacher, also she cannot control a classroom, the students make fun of her accent right to her face! which is one the most disrespectful things I've ever seen and she couldn't stop a fight from taking place in class!, that's right she was unable to stop a fight in a math class, unbelievable
its your own fault if you fail. you either skipped the whole semester or you came to class and gave her hard time. just show up sit there quietly and dont bother her and youll get over 70 no problem
She's a very nice person, but a little unclear in her lessons.
she will not help you, and she's not clear. but she is very nice and will pass you if you come to her class!!
she is the worse teacher ever! she will not help you. only if yur polish. she has favorites in that class as well. she can be nice at times. but she doesnt knoe how to teach. i would like to have a teacher that actually teaches me something. not just sit there and want us to do something that we have no idea wht is it. ughh!!
Horrible. She can't even teach religion. Btw that formal complain thing will not work because the principles DO KNOW that she is extremely poor at her job. She showed Passion of the Chirst in class, which not only was rated R, it was not legally able to be shown in school since it was still in theatres and we did not have a license from that particular film company. Even knowing this, the prinicples did nothing. If you get her for math, switch out. If you don't, you will be utterly confused the next year
stop complaning and do something about this. if you don't think she's up to par, get together and formally complain. we shouldn't be paying someone for nothing.
A nice person, and im sure She knows alot about math, just doesn't show it. I learned math from the textbook more than i did from her, and if she was more assertive and showed that she understood more, students would see that and wouldn;t spend most of their class time in the corner playing cards.
"Chicco, this is not a tavern!!!" Kontz was a great teacher; sometimes difficult to understand but you get used to it. He's cool.
my favorite teacher in grade 9. he passed me when i failed his class and he always tried to help me. He does have an accent but even my mom at the interview said to me that he is still easy to understand. my only problem with him is his writing on the board, i cant read it cuz hes a messy writer
By far the worst teacher i have ever had. It is nearly impossible to understand her and she rufuses to help you(unless you are polish).Don't forget about the pop unit tests and the rediculously high marks for all the polish kids in the class. What a terrible teacher! I am surprised she hasn't been fired yet.
there is nothing FUNNY about his accent...that is just the way he talks. all you have to do is open your ears and he is very easy to understand. great teacher.
best math teacher i've had. He teaches really well and his one-liners are classic! Great guy.
Worst teacher I've had so far in high school, all we do is take one or two notes then sit around talking for the rest of the class...
she is the worse teacher i have ever had. i cant understand a word she sez. i want a real teacher so i can actually learn cuz math is my worst subject :(
I like him, hes a cool teacher and his jokes are funny. He kicks me out a lot though.
Funny guy, really learned a lot from him...Extra marks indeed!
"you want marks? i'll give you marks. i'll give you NEGATIVE marks..."!!! LOL... the best math teacher. doesn't like 'goofs' but pay attn and u'll be fine!
best math teacher at pocock.....funny guy too....."...i will simplify your mark"...ahah....too much jokes in that class...plus he lets you out 30 minutes early!
I counted once...and this guy said wut ...as in, and wut is it? , or wut is the answer? .. 179 times in one class (AND WE GOT OUT EARLY)
great teacher, best math teacher i've had so far, nice guy too. You gotta be payin attention to get his jokes.
his class certainly wasn't boring; he has a great accent too
funny to listen to/great joker/hey 2001-2002 gr 10 class polish parking lot eh&
cool teacher, even though u don't understand a word she says, shes sooo nice
Best math teacher iv had. Shouldn't be so specific about doin stuff
funny accent fun to listen to him talk. Had him for night school in F.M.Goetz
