my fav teacher was Mr Sonny Grant in grade 5. He was so nice and would even get a bunch of us into the school on saturdays to paint murals on the walls. Also liked Miss Marsha Schurman, she would bring her guitar in all the time for sing songs. Both taught out of Parkside at the time.

My favorite teacher was my grade 8 homeroom teacher at Birchwood Junior High School in 1987-88. Mr Bernard Pepin. I was in French Immersion, and Mr. Pepin was the most understanding and dedicated teacher I had for my entire school career. He worked with the students to find a way for each student to achieve their best in a way that worked best for them. Dedicated, he sent home report cards every three weeks, which included all of our tests that had to be signed by our parents. If he noticed our marks slipping, even a little he would call for a parent/student/teacher conference to try and find out if something was going on at school or home or just in the students life in general that might be affecting their performance at school. I was a student who passed grade 7 Late Immersion with barely a 69% but with Mr. Pepin as my teacher and having him as such a great mentor, I began to love school and my marks improved to where I achieved an 84% overall average. He knew how to talk to the students, at their level, understood us. He made learning fun, interesting. He was for sure my favorite, and teacher I remember the most out of any of my teachers at school ever. Not sure if he is still teaching, but if he is, his students should consider themselves lucky. One great teacher! I still remember our class trip to Quebec and Mr. Pepin on the dance floor with the students dancing it up with Mdme Dugay! Fun times indeed. Nice to have some good school memories. I never had a teacher again like Mr. Pepin!


Berni!!! I was good friends with his daughter...he is pretty cool!

I remember once when his daughters came into our class to work on a science project about taste buds...he was my favorite teacher...he was great....if only all teachers were like him, our school system would be sooooooooooo much better off

To get back on topic... :lol:

My favourite teacher at MRHS was Evelyn MacLure, my Grade 11 English teacher.

I found her to be very witty and extremely intelligent.


Right on, score another vote for 'Heavy Evy"....she was mean, tough, funny, tempermental and inspirational.

Plus she was the only person ever to convince us to try eating dried seaweed. :shock:

Fav teachers of mine were J.B MacDonald and Gordie McCarville...You could ask Gordie a question and get him off topic and he would spend the entire class in a story that had nothing to do with what he was suppose to be teaching you..In that class Thane Arsenault was a student teacher as well and we had a good time that semester..Thane may take some heat for reffing but he is a good guy away from the rink...

Well, it's obvious we went to the same school... *G* I had Mr. McCarville for Gr. 10 Geography and PEI History in Gr. 12.. and had JB for Gr. 11 English the second time around... I remember my first day in Geography, he was going around the class.. was saying who everyone was related to.. I stumped him.. because I'm not related to anyone on the Island.. *L*

I'd have to say, after a great deal of thought, that Fred Hodge, of P.C.V.H.S. (now assimilated by Holland College) would get my real nod as my greatest teacher...after mom.

1st, Mom

First, a word about mom. She passed away many years ago, but she deserves this mention.

When I was about 10, our clothes dryer died. She called up Holman's and their appliance tech came over and spliced the element. This lasted 3 days.

Now, remember, I was 10. I told mom that since elements get too hot to solder, the tech used a spliced one, and spliced elements develop hotspot and burned out. I suppose today, it would have been considered abuse to let a kid fix a 220V appliance, but that repair gave me confidence to repair the water tank and most other appliances in the house over then next few years.

I never learned to "Fear" taking on a repair and learned early, the need for documenting wiring. I learned that most machines can be figured out just by looking at them and visualizing their function. These lessons from Mom have served me far better, then her cooking lessons :)

Best real teacher.

Fred Hodge was my electronics teacher at P.C.V.H.S. from 1971 to 1973. Mr. Hodge seemed to get a kick, when I'd lean against the wall and sleep. Usually, he just let me sleep. He knew that I'd been studying since age 10 and wasn't about to miss a lot sleeping through a class.

Every now and then, Mr. Hodge would decide to shock me awake. Things would go silent as he aimed his chalk missle just over my head...often close enough to stick a clump of hair to the wall. The man had a good arm.

Nature helps us adapt to change and soon I was waking up just as he took aim.

Mr. Hodge liked to challange his students. One of our projects was to build an audio amp. We could build a state of the art custom unit or a simple one. Those of us that wanted to learn much more, by building the more challanging amps were rewarded with something we'd keep for years.

Mr. Hodge seemed to like making me work and pushed me on to a few school projects, like yearbook and the school canteen.

I can't say that I have ever had a teacher who had fulfilled his job better.

p.s. there are rumours, from credible sources, that I may have contributed to at least 1 teacher needing a long rest in a sanitarium :evil:

Hey,
I just wanted to say thank you for starting this post. I am a teacher and it's great to see that people still remember great teachers from their past and the impact those teachers have had. It is good for me to see threads like this because it inspires me and makes me want to be written about years down the road by one of my former students.

As for my memorable teachers, my Gr.9 and 12 English teacher Sigmund Rinas, from Clarke High School in Newcastle, Ontario. Great guy. He taught me sarcasm and self deprication in its most humourous form...

Hey I know you then...LOL @ TR...what a teacher, not sure if I would say he is a great teacher but he was memorable...You could do anything in that class and everyone pretty much did...Sleeping, smoking, openly cheating, crawling out the windows to leave halfway through class....
