My least favorite teacher EVER.. He picks on a certain few throughout the year, sits there pretending he can teach, calls himslef the best teacher in the school, wastes our time in class making us translate our whole irish book for no apparent reason.. i wud rather teach myself irish.. shudnt even be a teacher
kevin your fair cool oh wait now. hey lads im sound give 750 euro for irish college
i think he is a sweet man when i was in irish college xoxoxoxo
gives lots and lots of homework but gives you weeks to do it!
Sound man, glad i had him for the 5 years, gr8 teacher.
SOUND !gud craic in class,bt wen e getz serious ...watch ursef
Fun teacher and a good laugh, might have taught us something if he tried, but he didn't. Very lazy
sound but lazy wants us all to pay 680 euros to go to irish college
bates is a funny and sound man good for a laugh and doesnt have time for messers
yep have to say got on well with him developed a gra for the teanga only in his class.
Does he want to be an Irish teacher? Never got that impression when I was in his class.
Thinks he is so cool, tries really hard to achieve this by mocking others in class. Get over yourself!
i wasn't good at PE...SO??!!! what's his problem!!! noteveryone is good at it sir so dont shout at us!
Good teacher and no one should say he is a bad teacher. I bet all those who rated him badly were the ones who were to lazy anyway and just woudn't co-operate.
like a big bro, lazy. if he teached wed all get A's. GOOD STUFF!!!
doesn't give homework on a regular basis instead gives a lot of work usally around the holidays and thinks he's the best irish teacher in the school.
Great man! I was terrible at Irish but he helped through the LC! Love the language now thanks to him!
Mixed emotions for Kev! He is a decent caring guy...i guess i was lucky that he liked me...teaching was wher he fell down!
A difficult teacher to continuaously get along with. Much favouritism in class, but gives a sense of having no genuine respect for students. A competent teacher
Sound man, made us do the work, but who ever liked irish. Defo a good teacher
sound teacher......... but mothers and sisters beware!!!
Is ait an mac an saol, ach tír gan teanga, tír gan anam,mar sin - mol an oige & tiocfaidh si. Go raibh maith agat as ucht do tacaiocht trid is trid a Chaoimhin
had mr bates in the class of '99.his energy levels seem quite low, he could have more enthusiasm for his subject.he tends to ignore the weaker students in class
Excellent teacher - I would say to all the Nay-sayers "is minic a bhris beal an duine, a sron"
so lazy but good craic, can be very good teacher at times, other times i'm not so sure
very ignorant towards certain pupils...was choosey about who to be nice too...was very arrogant towards me.was very sarcastic!!
Bates is one of the best teachers in the school.Hes defo the best irish teacher!!
