Unfortunately this man only cares for himself and students who easily pick things up which makes his job easy but makes him look great. Stick him in a school with students who find it harder to grasp things and he wouldn't look so great.
Frank Thornton in one word - outstanding
I was a A student of Frank I found him to be honest and upfront sometimes strict but always cool. A great teacher. Hope you're still well Frank!
Frank Thornton is a truly inspirational man. I could listen to him all day. His tactics in both biology and soccer are phenomenal. I am currently on the Birmingham city panel thanks to this mans vast
Character! Hillarious jokes and hes got a bit of cockyness about him...could be a top scientist with all the info he has.
A great science teacher, gave excellent grinds, repectful of the students.
have him for grinds in mill st. excellent teacher who gives top class notes, maybe a bit full of himself but i go there for biology, not to make friends with teachers!
Legend of a man, have him for grinds in mill st, one of the few teachers who actually knows it all!!!!
had in millstreet last year & got my A1in biology-really appreciate how good he is when u have a useless teacher in school&really nice man too! Legend, thanks Frank! :)
Ah Fankie... rate the man any way you like but I enjoyed my time in his class, yes he was fast, yes he tried to be "one of the guys", but hell did he teach science well.
not a very good teacher - too much quantity and not enough quality. Not a great communicator and lacks depth.
Fantastic grinds teacher. Very charismatic. Once, Mr. Dobbyn had been trying to explain something for 10 minutes. Thornton interrupted the class to make an announcement, saw the board and explained it to us in 30 sdeconds!!!
always wanted lowell to read cos he was the fastest.everything was 100miles an hour.race into room and by time his jacket landed,the prayer was over.
Makes everything SOOOOO easy! Even the "intellectually challenged" students get A's in his class.
Simply excellent. Strict, but fair. If you want the result and willing to work for it... he's your guy!
Best teacher in the school,by a long way, FACT!.Got me handy a1's in biology and phys-chem. Should be up in the college lecturing. Has faults, but who doesn't?
He'd come zoomin into the class and expect the 1st person he saw to be on the right page ready to read it like the clappers.Legend.Excellent teacher though
good teacher reason i'm doin science today you can learn alot from that man slightly arrogant tho
great teacher but ive never disliked someone as much in my life. nearly knocked me out with a duster.
Have to agree he's a good teacher but not a very nice individual
great teacher when he turns up for classes and loves soccer players. but all round an xcellent teacher
thinks hes a alot funny than he he actually is an is not a very good soccer caoch, but i had some good times with him anyway.
ask him to do his justin timberlake impression- legendary!
Undoubtedly the best teacher in the school. Will get ya an 'A' if ya learn his notes.
Brilliant teacher. takes good care in his students.Could do with a decent joke book alright but at least he tries!
Best teacher in the school. Sound and witty . Puts an A on a plate for ya. Terrible soccer manager. didn't pick me and now there out
Nice guy, good teacher. Had him for Phys/Chem about 15 yrs ago. Used to do Civics aswell and was good at that too.
I have to thank him heavily for my results on the leaving - A great guy - have a lot of respect for this guy.
Excellent science teacher. Firmly made up my mind to go into engineering because of him. I loved JC science and he gave me a great base for the LC.
excellant teacher only bad thing i could say is he likes the salthillys and soccer players to much
What a teacher. brought me from a fail to a B2 in leaving cert. Awful saracatic thought and thinks he's funny
Taught the phys-chem class of '99 to 9 A1s in the L.C. Need you say any more about this guy? Great teacher, absolutely brutal jokes,hasn't a clue about soccer!
Brilliant. Such is his class that he is capable of humiliating you when you are right and wrong.
Absolutley class, couldn't ask for a better teacher. Pretty funny.
a brilliant teacher in every sense. very clear about what he's teaching. also brings a small bit of laughter to the classroom aswel.
