He seemed to enjoy belittling and insulting students. I wonder what happened to him to make him turn out like that.

Great guy, funny times 100. He knew too much about History sadly, we would be lucky to read 1 page in class. Got bad grades in his tests. Got B in the JC. Couldnt explain it!

A close call between him and Bruton for bigger chip on the shoulder. And worst of all a snob with little respect for pupils.

Taught me in the late 70's early 80's in history...most memorable for his "lift him up by the ear" method of attaining a captive pupil !. Generally witty ...

I had Matty from 4th-6th year 96-98, in the 3 years he gave us one piece of homework in October 96. The copies were not returned to us until May 1998. Legend.
