Hands down the best teacher I've ever had. Inspired me to do well and always made class interseting no matter what we were learning. So crack up as well, classes were always the highlight of the day. Wish I could've been taught by him but he's since retired. The man
He was the best teacher I have ever had
After leaving MAGS I've went on to start a business that worked out well so recently I've been doing some teaching. I straight up rip off Mr Gardner. Any time I'm wondering how to be better I wonder "What would Mr Gardner do"? I'm thinking about Mr Gardner a lot which is why I looked him up, so happy to see he's still changing lives and the world in that classroom. Thank you so much, I will say this in person if I ever get back to New Zealand.
I love Mr Gardner even though he won't stop cracking height jokes. Garnder Gibbs Mchardy top 3 teachers at Mags
Awesome teacher. Combines humour and an effective teaching style to create a comfortable class atmosphere.
One of the if not the best teachers at the school
best bloody form teacher for year 9, and best social studies teacher
Very very funny. I don't always agree with his opinions but he's actually a really cool guy and I did really well in hisclass.
shot i had him as a form teacher in 9GDR, super cool dude
Had him for global perspectives, very funny and smart teacher and always has a good story to tell about the subjects we are learning.
Mr gardner is not the funniest teacha try mr singh. but hes a gud teacha but we hav to do too much copying off tha board :(
funniest teacher ever. always cracking the funniest jokes usually about the students. actually made me want to do well in history.
Mr Gardner is easily the best history teacher at MAGS with his excellent combination of wit, sarcasm, traditional style and new (or slightly old) technology. Really enjoyed his teaching.
Best teacher I've ever had. Somehow manages to appear very traditional but is still respected by everyone. Even now when I come to a conclusion about history/politics I often suddenly remember that Mr Gardener had already said it back in 5th form.
Mr Gardner is one of my fav teachers at mags... very funi and an enjoyable teacha
Had Gardner for my fifth and sixth form history classes. Best techer I've ever had - wonderful wry sense of humor and an extremely knowledgeable guy. Learnt more about history in those classes than I did in my first year at uni. Great guy.
best teacher i have ever had at Mags... really knows his stuff.
Though mr gardner and the theory of microbes is a favourite topic of discussion amongst monarchs, presidents and dictators, several of todays most brilliant minds seem incapable of recognising its increasing relevance to understanding future generations
i reckon hes the best social studies teacher out. had an awesome time last year..thanks a lot sir, ur da man!
He's a great teacher that makes history one of my favourite subjects. Really witty, sarcastic and super smart. Has a few odd moments but I suppose he's got to have some oddities...
had him in 5th form i think. use to hate history, realised there were more to history. continued the subject til 7th form. thanks sir. wish all teachers were so passionate about the subjs they teach.
Great teacher, great sense of humour and also has an impressive knowlage of dates and facts.
Damn good teacher. Backs up lesson with often humourous examples and anecdotes. Funniest guy at MAGS - "Uh, large child, KFC's that way." XD
very wize, kool, funny and has very kool old valuebles. AWESOME TEACHER!!!... }: ]
Good teacher and is quite tolerant of bad behaviour, but definitely knows wen its gone too far, Keep it up sir.
He is damn smart aye... Hes crack up as too. Hes hard out with the disses aye.
A really awesome teacher. Hidden humour and you only catch on if you listen carefully so the class is usually very interesting and concentrated.
He has a very strong sense of sarcasm, which sometimes in infuriating and not funny!! He knows alot about history tho and is a good teacher...
very funny. has great life experiences. knows a lot about his subjects
M.J.GAWN 2002. Was never taught by Mr Gardiner, but have major respect and IF i was interested in his subjects he would have been 1st choice. Good luck Sir.
Mr Gardner is a good teacher although he can be a bit wierd at times. He makes great jokes which keep the lesson interesting.
