I had Mr Garrett for both French and English. He saved our entire class from failing JC French. Best English teacher I ever had!
Love the man, hop he one day gets his dream of living in france sumwer surrounded by books and good wine, only regret is that i only had him for pass french
Without doubt the most exceptional teacher I ever had. I have a lot to thank him for and I hope that someday Ill get around to doing it. This will have to do for now although I doubt he reads this.
Kept my sane whilst I was there, an island of decency in a sea of turds
excellent teacher, gave me a real interest in literature drama etc, made english one of my fave subjects.
u never have the same class twice thats4sure u learn something different everyday even if it has nothing to do with the subject hes supposed2teach!but have great respect4him so intelligent!LEGEND
Mr Garret was most inspiring, intelligent, interesting and kind. Without a doubt the best teacher I have ever had
6th year English was a blur, with 6 (or was it 7?) essays per week to write. It was all about quantity with little focus on quality or depth (there wasn't time). A real turn-off
One of the best teachers i've ever had.I credit him completely for getting me an A1 in my leaving cert.Really kind man too; Never refused a request for help.
1986-92 Loved his english classes, one of 2 seriously good teachers in the school ... he took over as our form teacher when we were at our most riotous !
brillliant teacher, really enjoyed his classes. got us all through the L.C with flying colours
This man opened my mind!Delighted to have had the experience,he was definitely "my Captain O captain!"
Mr G!, is an exceptionally intelligent man, who will teach you a lot about life but lacks clarity and in my opinion does not mark fairly!
nooch was a legend... loved his clases,never learned english but we learned about life,and thats good enough!
Good at teachin English but doesnt mean hes any good at teachin ny other language.U dont walk the walk so dont talk the talk!
Quote 'you should read it,it's in the library, unless some degenerate has stolen it'
I will probably fail my Leaving Cert English but i will be a more civilised human being....and that is more important...so i'm told ???
used to find him really annoying but he is now one of the greatest teachers i have. he really believes me & can speak english, unlike others in his field... ...
very cool teacher alot of respect for him so intelligent i actually like english after him thank you
Loved Nooch's classes, they werent filled with 'points' fodder.Definitely didnt suffer fools gladly, made for great entertainment!!
What on earth was he on about! 1 minute hes talkin about macbeth,next im hearin his thoughts on u.f.o's. his class didnt work out4 me,eh go in2 detention eh...
loved his class. if it wasn't for him i wouldn't have done so well in the LC.
taught me a valuable lesson... life ISN'T fair. realising that early makes it easier to deal with. great teacher.
FANTASTIC..classes induce euphoria today yesterday tomorrow
Extremely intelligent man with a highly enlightened mind, way of thinking and allowing pupils to come to their own conclusions.
12% in the mocks thanks to this man. My fav teacher :)
