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.
Great teacher. Very precise about uniform. Becomes happy with you if you are in full uniform. Thumbs up for mr.hanlon!
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"
never really knew what to think of him, an interesting sort of man very intelligent, always enjoyed his classes... despite what he thought....
em...if he doesnt like you dont get detention...he will keep you ther for like 2 hours longer than your set time...!!!
Real-life substitute for Dr. Dolittle! Very illogical, though; his detention lines take up more than one line and he talks to animals.
if u no latin he'l love u..he talkz kinda funni 2 an he doesn mind askin u nythn even reli embarsn stuff he kinda make fun of ppl 2 der face 2 lol ovr obsest wit histry an latin gives u like 400 lines
Quirky but I have to say Gerry was an excellent house master and teacher which is funny because he gave me more detention than any other teacher
He's excellent at teaching History.If you don't know the work you're supposed to,is it his fault?The unusual style of getting on to you prompts you to do well.Odd man but interestn
gr8 teacher but abit crazy bout history and specially clio (muse of history)
if you dnt study heel make history hell.he luvs 2 embarass u in front of evry1.2 nosy.v. clever hes a strict teacher but he made me learn history
Only person who made me want to continue with history while still in school
apart fromm making unprofessional comments he is a boring teacher.
Definately the one teacher you'll always remember from Newtown, thought me alot about life, he doesn't mean to judge dispite what we may think! Very Intelligent
Poor Gerry, Never going to make history just teach it.A Little Caught up in his duties.
i hate this teacher - i loved history and he made me quit
Likes making people cry. Kind of obsessed with tea but I have learned stuff so I guess he knows stuff after all. So, so.
Inspirational, eccentric, passionately hands on with students he favours but alarmingly sadistic to students he takes a dislike to.
Poor Gerry, he's misunderstood. He just has his funny ways.....
very hard teacher.has his fravite students up front of class. loves to know about your love life.
The best. H emakes you work but if you do its worth it.
A great teacher and a bit of a legend, in a twisted kind of way.
can teach as if he is only teaching the best students but anyone who is cant understand his complex way of teaching is left behind. has his favourites.
