Awsome. This man is a font of knowledge and real energy. Simply loves his subjects. Taught me History in JC and made me just LUVEEE the subject. He has a story about every incident he teaches. Got me my A. Thanks DD. Then I had him again for LC English. I kinda felt he'd get me an A again and he did. If ould Willie Shakespeare could hear dear Mr. D he's surely smile. I came to love English with this man. Hope he lives forever.

One of the best teachers I have ever encountered. He may be scary at first,but he's really a big softy underneath it all. He really knows what he's talking about and always adds a unique slant on lessons and topics. I got an A in honours english LC level thanks to this man. I don't know where I'd be without him!

Mr Devine is one of the scariest teachers i have. He knows his stuff but he scares his students too much that there scared to even put up there hand. We learn a good bit with him, but some girls in my class cry when he asks them start up. Its when he picks a girl in the class and asks them a question and if they dont know it he leans back puts his pen in mouth and think what to do, he then writes there name in the book and says that hes very disapointed in them. Worst teacher id ever had.
