Good teacher, knows his shtuff, stutters a lot, teaches life lessons "What would Jesus do in this situation?" One thing that distracts me though is that he has quite enlarged nose cartilage which makes him look like the squid man from Spongebob. What's his name? I think it was Squidward or something

Criticised and didn't encourage. I often felt he became a teacher simply for the power it wielded. Made RE interesting at LC level, but he made me hate Economics.

Hated going into his class, didn't play football and had a mind of my own, therefore he hated me. He was always catching people chewing gum. Draconian
