Mr. Giles is truly a man of wisdom. You walk into his class taken aback by his strange behavior but you leave his class wanting more teachers like him. During the year, you cannot wait for it to be over, it's long and painful and if you are lazy you will suffer but as the following year comes you miss him so much. He teaches you life lessons and changes your perspective of life. He deserves beyond any award that could be given.
Even though I practically failed his class (due to my immense laziness), I've come to love -- I mean, respect and admire the man. His tests are a pain, but he works your mind down to the last carbon atom. He'll never tell you the answer, but will instead teach you to figure out for yourself. I'll miss that man, but I'll never forget his class.
Mr Giles gives tests that make no sense to me or anyone, he is very smart and helps us with public speaking though. Yes he did meet Odysseus and signed the DOI.
He is a funny guy
Love Nick XOXO
First of all, Mr. Giles is an unbelievable teacher. He really makes you think, and all he wants to do is make sure you learned something that you can apply to the real world. Not only is he amazing in the classroom, he's also an incredible guy with a character that everyone should strive to have. The main advice I would give for anybody who has Mr. Giles is when he says "understand every single world you are reading," he means it.
Mr. Giles is an incredibly smart man. I learned so many life lessons while being in his class. His test are a challenge, but they really make you think; therefore, making you smarter. I really enjoyed his class he is an amazing teacher.
Amazing teacher!! Learned about real life in his class.
Mr.Giles is my favorite teacher. While his tests are difficult he's an extremely smart person and is helpful with assignments. Bring a lot of pens and paper and read the books as many times as you can.
Mr. Giles is a great teacher with a very intriguing teaching style that is more reminiscent of college than high school. He teaches us things that will help us in real life, not memorization.
Best instructor on the planet. The man truly deserves a shrine.
Strange with a Capital S He is by far my favorite teacher and he knows so much its ridiculous I absolutely love him.If you get him as a teacher remember to always bring cookies and cakes for him and to ALWAYS STUDY FOR HIS TESTS!!!!!!!!
hardest teacher you'll have all year.. His books are boring and tests are close to impossible
So far, he's my favorite teacher!:) I love it when he starts debating with the class. If you would love to have an interesting class, you should better get him.

Mr Giles is the best teacher I have ever had. Freshman English and senior English. He made us think, and led us to learn so much on our own, from our own lives. He taught us English, fromhim we learne
Mr. Giles is awesome!! He at first seems like he will be a hard teacher but by the second week you learn to love him((:
All who believe his class was hard have obviously never worked before.
Mr.Giles is the bes teacher i have ever had. learned so more in his class in one year than i have my whole life
Mr. Giles is a wonderful teacher. True, his class is very hard and he makes you work hard for your grade. But overall a brilliant and kind man.
MR. GILES ROCKS!! give him a chance,,, in the beginning he is kinda intimidating but later on he is really cool and you really learn a lot..
Mr. Giles is the best teacher i ever had. he made you work hard and deserve it
Mr. giles is a really good teacher.. you won't particularly like him at first but later towards the end you will realize that he is a great teacher!!
I was in his class in my freshman year in 1992.He was a nice teacher. Now I am a wedding minister & consultant in Texas & thanks to his teaching it helped me in my business with writing contracts.
Best Teacher At Barron.. made you think about "the meaning of life".. instead of just teaching.. I understood him.. he was great!! kept your attention!! I hope i get him seinor yr!
only lazy bums do poorly in his class and I don't think they are deservie the time of day anyway. He teaches about life, not just English, and he makes you think, he's the best!
'83 grad - very enjoyable class - he was a very good teacher - cery nice person
I'm a Junior in college now and Mr. Giles is by far the best teacher I've ever had! He's an incredible teacher and I learned a lot from him. So happy to hear he's still teaching.
Giles was a very difficult instructor. Basically the class was "read the material, take the test, and then go over it". Takes pleasure in failing students (and two sheets of paper)
his class is hard and he enjoys playing mind games (especially on me) but i think he will turn out to be the teacher that has prepared me the most for real life
Mr. Giles was the only teacher at Barron who taught me things that I will carry with me throughout my life. He is why my major is English in college.
Mr. Giles is most efficient teacher i have had. He doesn't feed us answers. Instead, it's all about enhancing the mind and how to express ourselves on our own.
Giles you r the best teacher i ahve ever had i learned so much in your class not only about books but about life and myslef
Mr. Giles is different but in a good way. You learn SO much about LIFE and yourself in his class. He can be difficult but he knows his stuff and he's VERY COOL!
mr. Giles class is one where you are able to have debates on important issues that affect everyone. it was a challenging class but a good one!
