He's a good English teacher and a good person. He holds his students to a high standard and he's a tough marker so a lot of students feel a bit put out by him, but if he says you're doing well you know he really means it.
Mr Joel is a great teacher! Helpful and a super kind guy, he knows what he's doing although he can have a temper at times, But he's a very good teacher.
Mr Joel is the reason I passed English last year, he is one of the best teachers I have ever had and also a very nice man. I can only hope to have him again!
i had mr joel in year 10 and i did not like it. he is mean, strict, scary and doesnt help me at all. dont look forward to english and hes always grumpy.
I had Mr Joel for English the whole time I was at Avonside and he was one of my favourite teachers, he was always willing to help and mde classes fun
Mr Joel could have a temper sometimes but he was helpful, passionate, smart and funny. He did awesome work with productions and gave so much time up for that wihtout a lot of thanks- a good guy
He does give really good notes, but he just expects you to go along with what they say and not question his views or come up with anything original.
Always has interesting things to say, i've learnt more in his class than any other, perhaps not all relevant to the subject, incredibly interesting though. I hated english last year but now i like it
He made me love English again. He actually talks to everyone and you can tell he doesn't think his classes are stupid. A grat teacher! he could make any subject fun =)
Mr Joel is awesome, he does/did really great work with the productions and had interesting real life stories to tell you, I thought he was great :)
If it wasn't for Mr Joel my daughter wouldn't have stayed at school and achieved Level 1 and 2 in NCEA
Mr Joel is awesome!! He is soo interesting to listen to! Hes great!! Fantastic Teacher!!
he thinks all the students are stupid and talks to us really condesendingly. also talks way to much bout his private life.

Mr Joel understood what English was all about and tried to put that across to his students. Even though at sometimes he could be grumpy, as everyone can be, he was all in all a great teacher.
