had him for physics and applied maths in the 90's. The man is an A1 genius, made maths fun, and loved his dry sense of humour. Loved his students and always tried to get the best out of them.

Mr. Hanley just can't fill his shoes. He was such an incredibly good teacher. Especially the way he didn't make you learn - if you slept, you failed. :)
