Easily the best maths teacher I ever had during my time in the school
Comedic genius. Hilarious anecdotes. Great teacher too, had a passion for the job
Over a decade later when I'm sitting in my office and I click a pen I hear a voice yelling to 'stop clicking the pen'
Without a doubt the best teacher I had, only I didn't appreciate it then. An absolute gent with plenty of compassion for his students and passion for his job.
A great man on both a teaching and personal level. He's excellent at conveying his message, and is acutely aware of the problems faced by his students. I've never met a fairer, more skilled maths teac
Wha a man :L Best teacher in d school an a livin legend:L
the chaps a legend i came from a lower class to his and im passing cant belive eh wat a guy
Talk about making the most of a bad situation. Kids expected to fail, he wouldn't do 'em a wrong turn.
by far the best teacher in the school! does everything he can to help you and is just an absolute legend. he thought me for 5 years without him i would have never made it through the maths course. If theres 1 thing ill miss about his class is getting off home work because man u are playing.:)
absolute briiliant teacher who can only be appreciated when you leave the school and look back. He is not paid to be your friend.
He goes over EVERYTHING a thousand times!! VERY NARKY!
he's the best maths teacher in ireland by james gonzales i'm in his maths class 1g
cotter was a genius, an inspiration to me he is the best damn teacher ever and anyone who says different is just completely daft
sound bloke since he suupports man utd ha, sometimes hard to listen to and boring sometimes but every teacher is, dedicated and determined, has a routine and sticks to it and id say overall very good teacher
Without doubt the best teacher I ever had. I had John for three years up until my Inter Cert in 1984. If I hadn't had John as a teacher, I doubt I ever would have got to College. I have since completed a Masters and have a very strong career. Thank you for taking your job personally, it should never be expected of a teacher, but that is what sets you apart.
this man was a real + 2 maths he is a legend and i cant believe i didnt get him 4 leaving cert
the man made it hard for us but now i know why.....Thanks for everything you did for us Mr Cotter
By far the BEST teacher that this school has ever seen. Thought my brother 10 years before me too. Had the respect from most of the students. Maths & English exams were a breeze with him. Had him for both n junior shame it wasn't for the leaving! Top Man!
this man is brilliant he's the only one that could silence the entire school with one roar. not a bad person either once ur just talkin to him ....very down to earth
the biz - very honest man, never talks down to people
he is a good teacher but get on his bad side god help ya
Super teacher!! If only i listened! One of best in school!
If you read this Mr Cotter, I did'nt really understand or try enough way back in 1990. It was my loss, not yours, as you tried your damnest to knock sense into me and I'm glad to see you're still going strong. One of the most dedicated teachers I ever knew. (Still though, I got there in the end though :) DC
exellent teacher de best in de school but he can get a bit physcho at times well actually not a bit loads sometimes for no reason
great teacher knows his stuff.bit of a weirdo though
A great teacher. Very dedicated. I had him up to my inter cert in 1985. 10 or so of us went on to third level (mainly engineering/science)in1987 which was very unusual in Ballyfermot at that time. It's thanks to John and another few teachers from that era.
the best teacher in the school he is a complete pshyco but the most genuine maths teacher i`ve ever had.keep up the good work johnny!
Only teacher ever able to get me to understand maths. He is very understanding and genuinely cares about his students. He's a genius and he doesn't even know it. Best maths teacher ever.
This man deserves a top notch award for teaching. Got me where I am today. Keep up the good work Mr. Cotter
He is the best teacher you could get.He has improved my grades by a mile and I hope he does the same for others.
j.c is hands down the best teacher in entire world gets my class passes in the exams even when most of them could easily fail a blood test .LEGEND
A man of true integrity,and a great teacher-the first teacher i think of when i remember school-and for good reasons
Got A in Inter moons ago. Brilliant Maths teacher. Understandibly lost the rag sometimes. Most in class passed Inter. Some could'nt pass a bridge! Genius.
good teacher he could cool it down a little bit. mark hand
very strict but he is a great teacher. if he catches you not paying attention he yells LOOK UP! MR XXXXX. its a bit funny after a bit
A teacher you wont mess with but one of the best teachers in the country by far.
The Most polite teacher in the school.He always says 'look up,please!'.He craks me up when he calls everybodys homework a 'total mess'
It's been 18 years since I was in his class but I feel that J.C is worth a special mention. He was simply the best teacher I ever had
Johhny is the coolest teacher ive ever had. He is brilliant and a great football fan. He can be strict but cracks you up with "Hey you"
A very good but very agressive maths teacher.Grat laugh for CSPE though
"LOOK AT THE BOARD!!" - one of the best teachers i ever had, and frightened the life out of me until 3rd year, a true talent.
Great teacher! Terrifying in 1st year. Scary in 2nd. Great laugh after that. Infamous for making a certain student cry. And for being a great maths teacher.
An absolute genius in the classroom.Got a b down to him.
what a teacher. john was the best teacher in the school by far. strict but fun to learn from. thanks john
