This man is a maths genius, though I think he's retired now? Had him in 5th and 6th year and though a lot thought he didn't explain well, I got a B in honours many got As. Students have to work too

Great character and mathematical genius. Takes his time explaining things, but listen up and it all makes sense in the end. Will anyone better his results? Probably not.

Talented teacher but only concerned with top A performers. I wasn't an A performer so I didn't rank in Donnie's ratings.

He is a great laugh and can teach when in the mood to explain it (which is very rarely) but he is very slow to get through the curriculum
