Very intelligent man with a wealth of knowledge and experience. Can get sidetracked during class, but I blame the constrained educational system! I can't say I've known him for very long, but we bonded strongly during a p/t meeting. I hope he's doing okay!
I think this is the same Mr. Johnson I had for History, way back when. If it is wonderful guy, lessons always interesting, and thought me something off the curriculum, about Platos Cave theory which has stuck with me all these years. Very calm 95% of the time and then well he was not ; ) great great teacher
Teaching is not something he does well or at least tried to do when he was in during my time in school. He would always go off on rants about anything and everything. Very intelligent and has a lot to share but this seems to come at a cost to his teaching.
Wonderful teacher. His passionate recitals of old Bill Shakespeare's Othello used to make my day.
Great personality, very down to earth, many tales to share.
I'm also sad to see him leave. I wish you the best of luck on the road ahead, Sir!
One of my favourite teachers, even though I've only had him for a year for French and English. I'm sad to see him leaving, as I won't have him in my leaving Cert year
a really great teacher .. get's you to think and actually use your brain!!
what a remarkable guy...have fond memories of his class. Paris vaut une messe
""let's not neurotic about this gentlemwn!" "remember the lozenge?...nice caring guy whose not afraid 2 speak his mind
a really interesting and highly intelligent guy. Trys his best for students, but they just cant get him most of the time.
a really nice person but is somewhat impractical as a teacher. He doesnt realize that there is a difference between "spoon-feeding" and getting students thru their exams!!
fascinating guy and well able to teach english and french despite his rather unconventional methods "Comment allez- vous aujourd'hui?" "I wouldnt be saying this if it wasn't important"
Mr. Johnson administers productive learning through surreal and interesting methods. He has a brilliant mind, committed opinions and is, as he once called himself; "annoyingly intelligent"!
UNORTHODOX, BRILLIANT AND HIGHLY ECCENTRIC. HE SHOULD PUBLISH HIS YET UNWRITTEN MEMOIRS... SEEMS TO HAVE HAD A FASCINATING PAST. OVERALL A GOOD TEACHER BUT CAN DRIFT OFF THE POINT A BIT!
He made English classes pretty interesting, which is saying a lot. Nice guy.
A very good teacher and a complete GENIUS. He will one day device a plan to destroy the infamous announcements of Michael Roche.
findin him good got a B in me summer tests so im happy enough wit him
classes were very boring but he did try and i had him for 3 years. never any problems. good teacher and a nice guy
A great teacher. One of my favourites. Always looked forward 2 his interesting classes, and his unorthodox, interactive teaching style. Got an A in Leaving Cert English as a result
Brilliant teacher, knows loads of things and his classes are always enjoyable.
Ah Hank Scorpio!One of the most interesting people you'll ever meet but i have to question his teaching methods in english.Wooing,Courtship,High Follutant!
Yeah, he does tend to get off the subject a little but he's a teacher willing to question anything. He's a smart man and not afraid to speak his mind.
Never gets to the point...Will tell you countless tales of his past and will talk about anything...A shame none of its on the leavin Cert though...
so laid back hes horizontal. he shows theres more to english than whats on the page and has a lot of respect for the arts. how did he end up in davids?
hey man his name is francis!! brilliant and funny decient teacher well bet he smokes a bit of the whakey....like all of us at one stage..dont deny it!!!
hardworking, committed,brilliant, always enjoyed classes
He means well in his own way but cant teach french he stumbles from teachin latin, to telling stories(Waffles)in my french class
brilliant! was completely hilarious. i always wondered "how did he end up in this bogey school" the man was obviously a genius.
Reading plays he'd do the voices of the characters. Easy going
