One of my favourite teachers, really good and funny, but he has a terrible temper with messers, seems to like me
Knows the stuff but doesnt teach the course well...ends up rushing stuff at the end, trying to predict the paper and leaving stuff out. Defo not the worst around and his classes wer gud craic though
As a former pupil, I think Straw was a very good teacher for those who were intersted in learning.He wasn't great in dealing with messers I'd agree , but if you actually listened to him you did well.
Great man for physics. Explains things very thoroughly and makes sure you understand what is aninteresting subject.Always up for banter especially if it concern ridiculously difficult soccer questions
Boring subject complex teacher will ramble about anything
A superb teacher. I got an A1 in honours leaving cert physics. Best teacher teacher in Rathmore by a mile. Makes a complex subject like physics seem interesting and easy.
good teacher...................more about that later!!!!!!!!!
Past pupil, would have failed only took grinds, learned nothing, doesn't prepare you for exam at all..
Went into my leaving cert (many moons ago) and barely recognised the papers as being physics! bore no relation to what we had done in his class, does try though
i dont have him but he is my year head he gves out yellow/red cards lik da new time he dont listen to what youve got to say
I think he is the smartest teacher in ireland! he knows so much about everything its scary! he goes off in tangents sometimes. a pure genius!
know his stuff in physic but cannot relate it to class-which is probably the main skill in teaching.Does care but if he can't teach now, when will he???
A BIT OF A PHYSICS ADDICT HE GETS VERY OVERWHELMED HIS FAVE QUOTE IS "MY PATIENCE IS 0 TOLERANCE"
He has his favourites alrite but not so much as others. EXCELLENT PHYSICS TEACHER. Very underestimated, people think hes bad, well i have to admit hes DA MAN.
This teacher is way underrated in our school. Physics is an extremly hard subject to teach and he deserves a lot more. A lot of parents say he's bad - wrong
