No matter what others say, Mr. Giles is probably one of the best teachers at Canyon. He is extremely organized, always making sure that we wrote down the homework for the day. His assignments have a lot of variety; A lot of group work, projects, and visuals. If you pay attention, you will learn a lot. Probably one of the most informational classes of my middle school year.

Mr. Giles is really nice, but he doesn't seem to know the material well. Because of that , he can't really help anyone that much.

mr. Giles is very smart but he tends to over explain things, this makes it hard to understand things. I think he should slow down and only explain the important things.

He is really smart and is a good teacher who makes sure everyone knows what to do. His tests and homework assignments aren't the easiest but he grades fairly and is nice. It's also cool to hear his Irish accent.

Hi Mr. Giles, I just wanted to say you are one of the best teachers I have ever had and I definitely learned the most in your class than in any other I've ever had, and you taught things in a very enjoyable way. I really hope my younger brother gets the honor of being in your class next year when he becomes a seventh grader. Keep it cool G-Money (:
