Had him for JC business over ten years ago. His total lack of control still amazes me. Okay we ran riot but he brought most of the messing on himself. Nice guy outside the school though

Tries very hard, really knows his stuff, but strays off topic and allows classes to spiral out of control. What a sound man in all fairness though

He really tries, gets frustrated sometimes and loses his temper, often misunderstood. He is so calm all the time that when someone really annoys him, he really lets it out.
