Problem with this guy is his ego the size of Jupiter and the fact he is more concerned about it than actually seeing his students do well. I scored all A+s but not thanks to him. He’s more about teaching you to keep him happy than teaching you anything.

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.

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.

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.

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.
