An excellent teacher, and a great guy. After having him for two years, I can say he really mellows out once you actually want to be in his class.
Heaps to learn from him!
The best teacher I had at Melbourne High. Extremely knowledgeable, always well prepared, great dry sense of humour, caring and focused.
Yells to much but he does know his stuff
actually the best. knowledgeable and capable. cc with loriot
Really quite rude and loud at times, but he is freakishly knowledgeable. though, still would prefer keat
Sometimes prone to bouts of extreme shoutiness, like Jeremy Clarkson in a slow car, Raymond Pask is nonetheless a good teacher, who's tough but fair. His ability to teach well is mirrored by his ability to yell though, so don't get on his bad side.
From my experience at least, Pask is a brilliant teacher who teaches with great clarity and is always willing to answer any questions that you have. The only criticism I have is his lack of "easygoingness"; he absolutely does his nut at you when he loses it, in quite an unprofessional way must I say... but if you do pay attention in class and do everything you're supposed to, you'll get along with him really well. Likes to crack some pretty good jokes. Also, ALWAYS BE ON TIME TO CLASS.
Great teacher, and don't complain if you decide to be a little smartarse in class and gets shouted at. Geography with Pask can be one of the best experiences at the school with some respect and co-operation from students
Try a little bit harder to not screw around, he will be nice and you will learn lots. Had him to two years, made the exams feel easy when other forms were complaining about how "hard" it was.
Raymond Pask is a knowledgeable person but his teaching ability goes just up to there. Otherwise he is just another tightass.
Scary strict, very angry man. Though very smart good teacher, when he isnt angry but he usually is angry
a very interesting teacher, however do not do anything out of place when he is raging!
He's great. Just listen to him and be respectful and you'll have a great year.
Knows a lot but he is a complete TOOL Heavy use of sarcasm and bad attitude towards students
Good Teacher, knows what he is talking about. Makes fun of students too much though. he sould fine another way to discipline students.
In Pask's Geography Class, he is an incredible teacher, funny and very knowledgable, even wrote our textbook.
spends more time disciplining kids than teaching, didn't teach us the subject matter on his own exam
scary...afraid to yawn, but a good, sarcastic teacher nonetheless
Doesn't understand how modern teaching works. Very lazy, dictator style teacher, not a facilitator.
Fairly decent geo teacher, he tends to hate year nines and shouts very loudly and once manhandled a student out of a classroom, approach with caution
as others have said, pask is extremely entertaining if you're not on his bad side. had a ball studying geography and town planning with him.
It's funny when he yells, except when it happens to you. If you think yelling is creulty, then swallow some concrete and harden up, brilliant at what he does. And easy once your on his good side.
Hey dude, sorry about the 50 cent coin. Although keeping us in detention for 45 minutes was kind of cruel. Maybe when I see you next time, I'll buy you a soft serve from McDonalds or something.
hahah yeah Mr. Pask is pretty good, i never get yelled at alot, so funny watching other people...heheh
Good teacher, questionable jokes but easy going overall.
hahah yeah Mr. Pask is pretty good, i usually dont get yelled at alot, so funny watching other people...heheh
Very good teacher, but you MUST be on his good side, and for pete's sake, dont give him an excuse to pull the hammer out on you...
Come on everybody! His hissy fits are hilarious. At the start of every school year he gets angry at everyone. I just find it funny. He's probably mentally scarred many boys because of it. Good teacher
Awesome teacher who makes Geography entertaining. Just don't get on his bad side, because he's a nightmare if he hates you. He loved me though, so all was good.
Incredebly knowledgable but demands, and probably rightly so, respect and attention to his classes
dont ask stupid questions... and dont interrupt him, absolutley DO NOT interrupt him.
brilliant teacher.. LOVED GEOGRAPHY. maybe a bit harsh at times but over all BRILLIANT
Really good teacher if you dont piss him off. Hes really sarcastic, loves to bag all children and makes horrible jokes :D But hes a good bloke and i rekon im lucky to have him as a teacher.
VERY scary man and an absolutely awful person, but one of the best teachers as the school, he actually knows everything about everything...
Top bloke, but is harsh on you if you are late to class. Funny as hell too.
he is a good geography teacher with a lot of experience 9or so i think...) but he is overly sarcastic, dry, and sometimes plain rude. However, I think he is one of our best teachers.
awesome teacher. makes sure you know your stuff. just the wild mood swings are a bit hard to handle
I have always said this about Mr Pask: "A pretty damn good geography teacher, aside from the emotional problems." I think that is as close as you can get to the truth with this guy.
strong teacher boys. you may not like him but he taught well and rewarded strong students. its guys like him you remember after graduating.
