He is an okay teacher, really interesting to listen too, but he doesn't correct and grade work properly. He is funny, and quite helpful, he gives students alot of one to one time, but this all happens during class, so we don't make much progress. All the other classes are way ahead of us in the cirriculum, they have more completed. But his classes are enjoyable.

Taught me to form my own opinions, changed the way i think, The most influential teacher i've ever had. I'm in college now and believe me, the leaving isn't everything, what he says stays with you.

Had him for both English and History. His methods work well to teach you to learn independently and the more you work, the more you get out of his lessons. No spoon-feeding from him!

There are so many different opinions on him. Mine is that he was a very talented teacher when he did philosophy with us. He can have his moments of "brilliance" though!!!

its rather hard to put into words what mr. cowhey is actually like. However, putting it simply it may sound something like this - he is without doubt one of the best teachers u will ever come across.
