Assessment is not a spreadsheet -- it's a conversation.
Mr bower was a great teacher, i am really glad to finish my final year in middle school in mr bowers class. he is a really fun teacher, hi like him is becasue that he teach different from other teachers, he do not belive in marks, we come to school to learn for us. in mr bowers class we had alot of choices of what can do for our topic that we are learning. sicne we can choose waht ever we want do for our topic i really had fun doing it and i learned alot while having fun so it was really great.
Mr. Bower is a really great teacher. He taught me many things this year.In school, i really like Mr. Bower class because he would always make us think and he always has interseting topics,and we have choice of what we are going to do. Its like real life, we have choice and stuff. When you first see his way of teaching, people usaully think it doesn't work, but I think its better than teaching normally. One of my favorite topic were creavity, and he does that, because his differnet from other teachers, Like no homework, speak without putting up our hands(because in real life no one ever does) and it doesn't matter where we sit and the deskes are not in rows. Most of the time school is about reading and memorizing, but that is not really learning. But in Mr. Bower class in might be a little slower but we would understand everything.Like quality over quantity, we understand stuff lot but its better than know a little bit about everything. because like if you like something a lot and you foucus on it you come become something to do with it.(like Mr.Bower loves teaching it and he still leans about it)One of my most favorite topic is creativity, because it can change a lot of things, thats why people can become what every they want even though there not good in school, but also long as there creative. Mr. Bower taught me a lot this year and i would like to thank him. Poele might not listen to me now because im still young but imma use what mr.bower show me.
Mr. bower was a great teacher im sure gonna miss him when this year is completly over, he aslways tried to get it in are heads that the learning system is changing, though sometimes his class got boring haha i took alot from it, i learned that just becayse a teacher or a parents says something doesnt always mean its true, that you should think for yourself sometimes, Mr. bower tought me alot this year about myself and others, he thought me how to speak up in class hoe to get interested, for that i thank him forever, thank you Mr. bower
Mr. Bower was... a really cool teacher. He had a different way of doing things but you got used to it by about the second month. i really didn't thin I was going to learn anything, but now that I look back I realized that I learned a lot about L.A. Science and just life in general. It was a great year, we had lots of good laughs, and you are really good at burning your students. I am glad you were my teacher for my grade eight year.
Mr.Bower this year was my teacher he was not like the other teachers he tought he stuff that i couldent beliouve i could do like wat he does he showes people what he does even tho it may not be the clasic teaching way. He also taght me how to read better i never ust to like reading and the things i read i would forget but now i right in the margens on testes in newspapers ect. i never thought i would like reading but i do. Mr. Bower is the teacher my parents didnt have they say how i will be in shock with all the homework i will have next year but i dont think they get it. I do. They say Mr. Bower did nothing for me in the long run. I disagree.
Mr.bower was the best teacher i have ever had his way of teaching is not dtessful and is fun he trys hard to make things eay for us i apriate that he is trying to change learning and he makes me want to ask questions and be curious instead of wanting out of his class. i will miss him. YOU ARE GREAT MR.BOWER!!!!!!

You have given us great advice and i had alot of in your class with all of the experiments we did this year.
I thought Mr Bower was a great teacher and fun to have in the class with us. Though we didn't follow the cirriculim pretty much at all we still learned alot. He proves a point that learning doesn't come from multiple choice and textbooks. Mr bower is a great teacher and I wish him well at his new school Normandeau. Good luck Mr Bower Grade 8 with you was alot of fun.
Mr.Bower you are the awesomeist teacher ever, and i know that, that's not a word but, whatever it's in my vocabulary. I will never forget the awesome no tests or no grades or anything like that. This year was a lot of fun with you. I hope you have fun at Normando while we have fun at our high schools, well i guess this is my good-bye, well c-ya mr.bower. I will miss you and so will everyone elseFrom your student: Kimberley Cole Grade 8....BYEEEE! :)
mr. bower was a great teacher because he NEVER gave out homework and tests and becaues he was fun to be around all the time. i liked how you never got mad at me when i was goofing around with my friends. thank you for the BEST year EVER! have fun at your new school. :)senserly: Nathan Bauer
mr bower was a great teacher.i t was fun.it was definately a different year than any other but some to our benifit.Good luck teaching at notre dame.
Thanks for the great year Mr.Bower i really did enjoy all the speeches about student learning it really made me think about how we need to change not for the better of our schools but for the better of our students and teachers and the way teachers teach and the way we learn. i can honestly say that i would not of wanted a different teacher other than you. i promise i will come and visit you some day at normando and maybe you can teach me some more one day i think that would be pretty cool have a great summer and i will see you soon :)Austin Hamilton...
mr bower was the best teacher i ever had because he never gave us tests and tried to connect with us and be more than just a teacher i loved all the projects we did and his whole style of teaching this has been my favarate school year ever because there was no stress having to get good marks and study for tests so i am sad he is leaving
Mr.Bower was a great teacher, in some classes I wouldn't be exicted to go to class, but when I had mr.bower I always knew that it would be fun. I wish more teachers had more of the same aproch you had cause this year was one of my favorite years in science and I seem to like it alot more.
An amazing teacher. He really taught me a ton of interesting things this year. Sure, sometimes it get boring doing the same thing over and over again, and I'm not too sure about those Ted Talks but overall, i really had a great year. I'm sad to be leaving this school, and i'm sad that he's leaving too but i'm sure we'll both have sucsesful futures. I hope you have a good summer with his 2 1/2 year old daughter, Kailey. ;) Haha. I'll never forget this year.
I thought that this year in your class was reallyy fun, we learned alot and we didnt just learn the curriculem we learned other cool stuff too. I liked this year. it was fun
mr.bower was a teacher but to me he was more then a teacher, he was a friend he may have tought use but he learned a few things with use. he was one of my fave teachers.
mr bower u were a awsome teacher i could not ask for a better teacher then you. i may of been a pain in the ass but you still belived in me at what i can do. you gave me the help i needed to help me through the year but now its time to say goodbye to great time i had in year classes thanks mr bower
Mr.bower you were a great teacher, your ay of teaching was hard to get used to at the beginning of the year, because we never learned that way before. As the year went on i enjoyeg comming to your class to learn, i hope that your teaching will inspire other schools to teach that way.
Mr. was a great teacher. I liked his style of teaching, because I thought it was very interesting. The thing I'm gonna miss the most about Mr. Bower is his sense of humour.
mr bower is the greatest teacher i have had or can rember to have. school is usually not a very incredibly happy thing to attend but with mr bower he always made class fun and exciting, evcen though i thought the star wars unit was diferent i still like the class. i respect mr bower because of his guts to do something different and not follow the old way of teaching i like the classes he made and how we used electronics. thank you for being a good teacher.
Mr. Bower was an amazing teacher and always so much fun to be around. I know i will miss him when i go to high school, and i do intend to visit him at normandeau.
Mr Bower has been one of the most fun teachers I have had whether it was just going on a regular feild trip even on the ride to the place we where going to talk about what where passing by or something like that I found that really about you, and no homework rule was also really fun eventhough it made my parents really mad sometimes GOod luck at your new school
Mr bower was a fantastic, fun, smart, and helpfull teacher I really enjoyed being in his class this year even if I wasn't in it for very long. Mr bower is like no other teacher i have ever had before. thanks for being my teacher have a great summer
mr bower was da best teacher hes an awsome teacher
mrs. Bower was a diffenet teascher because he doesnt beleive in home work, test and grades. we got to go on alot of flied trip. it was a fun year and im sad that ur leaving bye.
Mr Bower was a great and fun teacher. he always had something for us to do and when he didn't we got to choose something to do that had somethingin anyway to do with waht we were learning.thanks mr. bower i had a blast!
I thought Mr. Bower was a truly unique teacher, and I feel fortunate to be in his class for what little time I spent at Westpark. I enjoyed his projects and experiments, which were not for grades but for him to help you learn what you were curious about. I greatly appreciated his unique styles of teaching, he approached lessons, situations and confrontations with the same usual amount of understanding and acceptance that is unfortunately a scarce commodity in today's teachers. Thank you, Mr. Bower for teaching me in this year I can genuinely say I enjoyed and learned things that matter to me.
Mr. Bower, you've been an amazing teacher this year. And some days, I wonder what we have learned. And I was reading the textbook one day for the first couple of units, and we actually covered them! I was actually shocked that we covered alot for Science. Even though we didn't as far in and cover all the units. I think you were a really cool teacher, not just because you didn't give us homework, or make us do stupid tests.You are a great teacher and whoever has you in the future is a lucky kid.
Mr. Bower was a great teacher, and the most unique teacher I have ever met. It was so fun being in his class. If you had an idea in his class, and you told him about it, he would say to you, "Go do it" and then you would. It was so simple and easy you didn't need to worry about anything, and you could just learn about anything that interested you.
Mr bower was aweosme. without him i dotn think iw ould ahve gotten this afar with my school career so i am going to miss mr.bower alot. And by the way.
Mr. bower was a fun and understanding teacher and probably is one of the best teachers on a actual teaching kids stuff scale and on a fun but edjucational scale i have ever had. I think i wont forget him for the rest of my life for how he has changed my mind on what learning is and what is should be about.
