A man with a bit of class. Respectable gentleman, to say the least. Always hands up homework on time, never late to class. Most well behaved student I have ever had.

He seems to know history very well and contrary to what some people here said, i think his powerpoints are a good idea. The problem is, he really can't controll the class. Everyone messes and he doesn't do anything about it, this can be funny for a few weeks, but when this happends over the 3 years of the junior cert (Which happened in my class) it starts to be a problem.
