Never a clue what being said in his class but then again I never use my b.r.i.a.n
He was the best!!! Loved him!!
In retrospect, a English teacher although very 'by the book' and routine and results focused. Probably not his fault given the exams he's prepping the class for. Attitude towards discipline is a bit draconian and honestly only A. Punishing good students for genuine mistakes or B. making bad students resent him while giving them no real incentive to do anything differently. Stick & Carrot only works if there's a carrot, my dude. No need to make being a teenager more of a pain than it already is!
Mr Harding is a very good yet strict teacher. While I'm not a fan of getting my homework signed, it's probably for the best.
Loved him, but I know he's like marmite!!
this teacher has really good method to check that pupils are listen
Are you allowed to used the C word on this? Here's a man who, if he doesn't have people imprisoned in his cellar already, most assuredly will do some day. Some teachers are exponents of the "tough-love" methodology... strict but fair. And some teachers just get a little bit too much pleasure out of running people down and being in control. Jesmond is the latter.
A strict teacher, but also a very encouraging teacher. Brought me from a d in pass english from the junior cert to a b+ in honours leaving cert. Looking back he was always extremely encouraging and has the students best wishes at heart. Excellent teacher
Great teacher wish I made more attention to but the way you teach works and I loved hearing them story's of your life
really did not like his class while in school, but after leaving 5 years ago u think back and he is a very good teacher, he was and prob still is very strict but is a good teacher
He is a very encouraging teacher I really like his style
I understand he can be intimidating and a bit strict but in 4 years time when you have left school you will realize what he is preparing your for.. I doubt he reads this but thanks sir.. Got allot of life lessons from you
im in 6year i had him in 3rd year and i hated him he can be very stricked but thats his job! poor first years hate the school alredy and their not even in it a year imagain the in a few years :/ .. few of them will stay id say about 5 of the kids in 1 year will get expelled haha sorry sir your a bit
Had him 4 years ago in 6th year you really dont know how good he is until you leave.
In 1st year grandd teacher but too much punishment work :L !!
good teacher but very strict but u will learn from him!!!!
What an amazing man :-) Was such a support to me in personal problems and got me an A1 in English! :-D
thing about mr harding is he's really good at his job. hates messing cause it watse to much time. only reallise how patient he is when your finished and wished you were back in his class
he has received the most comments, therefore he knows how to push buttons, he thought me history and I got an A. It seems he's like marmite, you either love him or hate him, and personally I felt he was a wonderful teacher, appreciate his methods, they do indeed work!!!
Not my favourite person in the world I must say, but not a bad English teacher.
Such a great person and he is absolutly hillarious :)
May not always have agreed with his methods. But an A2 in english. Can't argue with results. Thanks Jesmond!
He is GOD!!!!!!!!! Gr8 teacher... strict. FUNNIEST TEACHER GOIN!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! 5A 0708
Harding is amazing! Sure is strick but he is a great teacher! He is by far the greatest English teacher ever! He is always there to help if ya need it! He can be so funny sometimes & has a good smile!
Absolute gentleman...If only people had the foresight to see what he does. He's a great motivator and it will take a year or so after leaving school before you will appreciate the intellect of the man
he can be alri when he wants to be but he puts tooo much pressure on us for the junior cert!
gud teacher but is 2 harsh on his students. I hav him as my year head and he is well 2 hard
ahh you are all being 2 harsh!!!!i think mr harding s really nice!!!!!and a brilliant teacher¬!!!!!!!!
gud teacher but has 2 many rules nd punishes 2 much 4 breakin dem
good teacher but he is stressin me out, im dreadin the exams, chill out , its alrite to be strict but but at least let the students feel comfortable, and ease of on de first years, they are terrified!
not a nice person, picked on students in the class. and had predjudices about everything, which he shared in class all the time
He is alright most of the time. but he really needs to relax .Your allowed to enjoy life Sir!!!!!!!!!!!!!
very scary but really nice wen ur not in class.great teacher but i tink i speak 4 everyone wen i say he needs 2 RELAX!!!
scares me although i cant complain cos hes very nice to me cos im good at it i still dont like him people are afraid to do badly
good teacher, he will help you and he can be a nice guy just dont get on the wrong side of him
ahh he is not so bad great speach u helped alot sit Thanks!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
never want him as a teacher hope he doesnt get principal!
mr harding is a good teacher but needs to chill out a little bit because he is scaring the 1st years,they are only wee kids like!
I had oul jezzy for 3rd year english n I hafta admit he was a deadly teacher even though he is perhaps the angriest man ive ever encountered!Lovin d prefab Jez!
METHODS OF TEACHING R STRICT BUT VERY EFFECTIVE. HE HAS GAINED MORE RESPECT IN THE PAST FEW WEEKS BY CHILLING OUT, LISTENING AND BY GIVING ENCOURAMENT.
STRICT n not as good a teacher as every1 makes out.still remember d fear of history classes(1st-3rdyr).I'm a present 6thyr..will miss him.Always very nice to me
i dont have him but wneva i c him i go the other way, he scares the bejesus ou of me!
Great teacher and year head but sometimes takes the wrong approach, should sort out that 6.1 class!!
Tough but fair. I never had any problems with him. Very good at teaching about the environment.
Our school isn't an army, so stop barkin orders as if we were your soldiers, Sir.
Good teacher but has the worst methods of motivation EVER. Won't help me do better in my Leaving. by threatening me. Students respond better to encouragement!!!
a strict teacher.although i don't like his attitude as year head he's a good teacher in the class room
great teacher, VERY strict, very formidable man. His lil bro is go deas too.
tryin 2 scare u only works if ur actually scared. 4 god sake relax . he cant eat u. learn from de man. good teacher but stop scarin de kiddies :)
i admit i only ended up with a C1 in honours but he helped me take all my subjects more seriously! now i'm a marketing master... nearly
great teacher!ya need discipline in old bawn and he was just the man.still be afraid to go into the prefab but in hindsight really did educate us boys and girls
Great teacher only realised when i left school though, the only reason i got an honour in english
great teacher could learn to relax slightly but he is the best at the school for teaching english by a mile
Sounds like things havn't changed. He has an interesting teaching style!
Very good.Had him for English in fifth and sixth year.Graduated in 2002 with C2 in honours English.Would not of got such a grade without his help.
harding is the best teacher in that school by far...if you have him be thankful...he is amazing teacher...he may strict but dont hold that against him...
Only had him a year, but he was real strict and it was all work work work. Not very enjoyable to be honest. His lil bro was damn fine though.
One of the best teachers in the school. Although most only realise this after they're gone. He knows what he's doing. Good guy.
