Probably one of the smartest men I've ever had the pleasure of meeting. He will be missed in Mel's.
He helped me improved my English a lot, but I do ask him a lotta times to get answers and I don't like it. I'm not really a big talk...
great teacher very smart roite
best teacher in the school
best teacher by far
Great teacher all around. Funny jokes. One of the few classes I actually look forward to.
Best teacher in Mel's!! Some man for the dry jokes but he is an unreal teacher! Is respected by everyone in the school and deserves it!
that man is too smart. he will be missed when he goes..
I have spent 26 years in the education system as a student. Jim is the best teacher I have ever had.
Brilliant teacher, those who rated badly of him are just raged they got on his bad side. :L
Honestly the best teacher in Mel's!! Inspired me to take a great interest in English!!! And has a great taste in music
Great teacher.. Definitely one of the best teachers in Mel's, if not THE best.
"Wall of Death". Witty, hard working, a great teacher and a gentleman. Along with Pat Fahey the best teacher of my time in Mels.
To good to be a teacher, has all the makings of a brilliant 3rd level lecturer! Got me an A in history for the leaving in one year!
This man is a complete genious, he is very smart and mannerly. a proper gentleman and whats more he can actually teach which is more to say than the rest of the teachers in mels.
lost him 2 fay in 4th year and am realy hated that!!...brilliant teacher and knows how 2 control a class!! defo THE best teacher in mels!!
He was a class teacher but I do remember him telling me I should do pass English for L.C. after geeting a D in honours J.C. ...I Ignored him and got a C3 in L.C. Honours English- stil his doing!!
A great man and teacher.Really funny too.You will learn somthing from this man!
Simply a genius. He could bring aperson who's failing foundation english up to getting an A in higher level english. Necer raises his voice and still makes a huge impact.Very funny
He did nothing for 2 years for the leaving cert then arives in 3 weeks before it with a list of tips 6 A1s and 3 A2s later all was forgiven
Excellent teacher,spontaneous and witty, Got "A"s in History on every exam when messed up on most others.Crack shot with a bayonet too
An absolute LEGEND!In a different league to P.Geraghty. Fact that he has never needed to raise his voice while in class says it all.Go Hither into outerdarknes
"As the mosquito said as he entered the noodest beach, where shall I begin" good craic, good teacher
The best English teacher in Ireland,had him for 5yrs,commands respect,teaches exceptionally,sprinklings of humour,like the mosquito in the nudist camp!!!!genius
in my opinion he is one of the best teachers mels ever had. he is in school at 8:45 each morning and does't leave until 5 in the evening. very sarcastic .
"We have to keep 1eye on the clock," brought me up 70 points in repeat year! He has to be the hardest worker in mels! Long live Scrufffey
Witty and excellent teacher. Great phrases like'go hither into outer darkness' & 'desist boooy'. A legend
"Military precision".class preparation flawless.put in serious effort.helped creative minds flourish as well as improving grammar,punctuation and spelling *10
Many thanks for providing a platform for thought and excellence
Quick of wit and hurl, takes no prisoners, without doubt the best teacher in mels if not the country. Youll end up loving the subject be it english or history.
spent a whole class teaching us an english poem once when the bell rang he stopped for a moment and said "who are ye" we had him for history!!!
brilliant teacher 1 of the best. witty and always had control of the class. a legend
At the time I didnt think too much of him but looking back he was actually a great teacher.
Speaking as a former student, he is one of the best teachers I have ever had. He is a great ambassador for education. Thanks jim.
Great teacher.Unrivalled dedication.Witty and sarcastic.His class is always great fun to be in.Top notch!Keep up the excellent work.
the man can make getting detention sound interesting. "my friend thats nothing that a good enrichment period wouldnt sort out". a legend.a gentleman.viva la jim
Bulldog is usually very moody (sometimes good humoured but rarely)hard to get a point of view across to him.Decent enough teacher. Snows in class regularly.
I have the upmost respect for this man, a true genius- whether it was english or swahili, history or latin, a man who has left an everlasting positive impressio
By far the best and most dedicated teacher in Mel's.Pity more students don't realise how good he is until they're finished with him.Mixes work with great jokes.
Outstanding teacher. Makes English enjoyable. Always gives 100%. Brilliant and witty!!!!!!!
absolute genius!!!makes english interesting with his sarcastic humour!!2how long is a piece of string?!!!!!"
brilliant teacher.1 of a kind. not a bad word to say about him... makes the worst jokes funny!!!!!
the most dedicated man in mels, first in in the morning and last to leave at night.great teacher who teaches the subject and not the exam which is rare.
