Mr Hanlon reminds me of a modern day Sherlock Holmes in the teaching world, with his powers of deduction, logic and ability to recall information in a matter of seconds. Definitely has favorites, however, he is more often than not a fair and funny character to speak/deal with. I have nothing but respect for the man.

Good teacher if he likes you... Way too harsh about uniform and sometimes has (possibly unhealthy) obsessions with students

Can speak Highly enough of the man, respect is earned with Gerry. Without a doubt tries his utmost to make men out of the boys he is given, occasionally working miracles...Great man, Newtown will be at a loss without him.

The funniest man....if you know how to wind him up, he loves you even more! Loves a good dope to pick on, but does it in a nice and entertaining way! Detention was the highlight of my week! I miss Gerry!

Well I always picture Gerry in his room with a glass of scotch and a cigar, looking down at all of the students through a telescope, and muttering things like "smoker", "shirt-tails out" and "runners"

Real-life substitute for Dr. Dolittle! Very illogical, though; his detention lines take up more than one line and he talks to animals.
