not a nice man, jealous and sma;
Very interesting teacher and genuinely good guy. Unique sense of humour. Some of the previous comments are unfair
Can be unbelievably sarcastic but he's still funny. His classes on Shakesperian poetry are gold
hes a good teacher, but sometimes i wish he would just spell it out...he lets you take things on board for yourself but sometimes its better just to be told what to do.
Good guy. Encouraging teacher - his combined English classes with Doc were inspiring. One of my memories from way back (84) is being called up in front of class as my tie wasn't properly knoted and having Jim re-knot.
Excellent teacher - some of the comments unfair. Has a thorough knowledge of his subject and communicates it well.
picks on students with terrible jokes(the lazy MMs?) but is great at peotry and his classes are mostly good
Excellent teacher - ratings not fair - definitely got me an A in English and always made an effort. Interesting man also if students actually listened.
I hated him with a passion but I got an honours and it was down to his cleverly timed sneaky clips in the ear
Sound!Great teacher and his notes are class.If you want an A he is the man
Sound out! NOT A BULLY!! If you do your work and listen in class you're gauranteed an A! ...O'Direan
He thought us that,unlike maths,english is more than "1+1=2",his notes are indespensible even though im an a proper school now.
Excellent teacher. Great to have someone promoting literature. He thought shakespeare to a bunch of scumbags. Takes balls!
He showed us the magic and delight of Yellowstone National Park
Found TY philosophy waffly. Nobody knows Shakespear's poetry better. Not even Mr.S himself ~ ACE
Unimpressive, great at saying nothing of substance. Thankfully had double English with Mr doherty in the 80s, he pulled us through, thank God.
What can i say.... just very good. sarcasm keeps students in-line. 3 o Díreáin
